Former Homosexuals Choose Christ and Holiness Over Sin

 “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible”  (Matthew 19:26) KJV

From gotquestions.org

Why did Jesus tell people to “go and sin no more” if sinlessness is impossible?

Answer: There are two instances in the New Testament when Jesus told someone to “sin no more,” and they were each under very different circumstances. The first is when Jesus healed an invalid by the Pool of Bethesda (John 5:1–15). Afterward, Jesus found the man and told him, “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you” (verse 14). It is clear that Jesus knew what had caused the man’s condition. We are not told the specifics of the man’s physical impairment, but the context implies that it was caused by sinful choices. Jesus warned the man that he had been given a second chance and that he should make better choices. If the man returned to his sinful behavior, he would have wasted the opportunity Jesus gave him to live whole and forgiven.

The second instance is in the account of the woman taken in the act of adultery (John 8:3–11). When the woman’s accusers brought her before Jesus, expecting Him to pronounce judgment, He told them that the one who was without sin should throw the first stone. One by one, the condemning crowd left. Then Jesus told the woman, “Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more” (verse 11). She had been caught. She was guilty. She did deserve stoning according to the Law of Moses (Leviticus 20:10; Deuteronomy 22:22). But the religious leaders who had dragged her there had no concern for holiness. They were trying to trap Jesus into saying that the Law did not matter (verse 6).

Jesus often reminded those religious leaders that He had not come to abolish the Law but to fulfill it (Matthew 5:17). He, as God, was the Author of the Law (2 Timothy 3:16). The Pharisees focused on the letter of the Law but missed the true spirit of it, which is given in Galatians 5:14: “The whole law can be summed up in this one command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” When Jesus refused to condemn the woman, He was not minimizing the importance of holiness. He was offering her the same kind of forgiveness He offers every one of us (Acts 3:19).

In saying, “Go and sin no more,” Jesus was not speaking of sinless perfection. He was warning against a return to sinful lifestyle choices. His words both extended mercy and demanded holiness. Jesus was always the perfect balance of “grace and truth” (John 1:14). With forgiveness comes the expectation that we will not continue in the same path of rebelliousness. Those who know God’s love will naturally want to obey Him (John 14:15).

When we turn to Christ and receive His forgiveness, we experience a heart change (Luke 9:23; Acts 1:8). Forgiveness is not cheap, and it does not excuse the sin that separated us from God. It cost God everything to offer us the cleansing that pronounces us righteous before Him (John 3:16; 15:13). Rather than continue in the self-centered path that led us astray from Him to begin with, the forgiven can walk in God’s path (Luke 14:27). A move toward God is a move toward righteousness, purity, and holy living (1 Peter 1:16; Romans 8:29). We cannot experience the transforming power of forgiveness without being forever changed.

It goes without saying that the woman caught in adultery did not return to her infidelity. She had met Jesus. She would not be perfect. No one is. But she was forever changed. Her eyes had been opened to the depravity of what she was doing. Sin no longer held the appeal it once did. When we meet Jesus, sin no longer holds its fatal attraction. Grace changes things. “Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?” (Romans 6:1–2).When we are born again (John 3:3), the power of the Holy Spirit breaks the power that sin once had over us (Romans 6:6). Once we lived only to please ourselves, but when we have been forgiven, our motivation changes. We now live to please God (Galatians 2:20).   (emphasis added)

It should be the goal of every Christian to “sin no more,” although we recognize that, while we are in the flesh, we will still stumble (1 John 1:8). God’s desire for each of us is to be holy as He is holy (1 Peter 1:16). We still sin, but sin is no longer a lifestyle choice (1 John 3:9–10). When we fail, we can come to God and ask forgiveness (1 John 1:9; 1 Peter 4:1–2). And if we are truly God’s children, He will correct us, disciplining us when we need it (Hebrews 12:6–11). His work is to conform us to the image of His Son (Romans 8:29). source

When you read this story from charismanews.com, I believe that this is a modern day picture of Jesus transforming and forgiving those who were caught up in the sin of homosexuality.  I am certain that our Lord has said  to these precious ones “Go and sin no more” just as He said to the woman caught in the act of adultery.

And THAT is the desire of their hearts – to follow Him and cease the sin of homosexuality.  They truly chose Christ and Holiness over their sin.  Praise God!

Former Homosexuals Choose Christ and Holiness Over Sin

Participants in the 2019 D.C. Freedom March. (Freedom March/Facebook)

Millennials and Gen-Xers stood together, unified with a voice that declared freedom is possible through Christ. The message is what so many need to hear but has been so quickly shunned. It lacks popularity but is packed with power.

Jeffrey McCall, the founder of the Freedom March, invited me to be a part of this historical event. Watching so many younger than I stand unashamed and passionate about their experience of walking out of the lifestyle of homosexuality into a life of freedom in Christ was a magnificent experience. This has been an answer to prayer.

They stood together, each one with their own story of how Christ came into their heart and gave them a brand-new life. These young people were vibrant and energetic. Their enthusiasm was clearly visible as they shared their testimonies of coming out of darkness into the marvelous light of Christ. 1 Peter 2:9 says in the Message Bible, “But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.”

While they had no qualms reminding me that I was part of the “older generation” and spoke of my “mothering heart,” I couldn’t help but be amazed as I watched them speak boldly and with much assurance that it was only Jesus that kept them and brought them to this point. They did not hesitate to let everyone know that change is possible, hope is tangible and love is available.

This march represented so much more than just a group of people gathering to share their thoughts. This was a march in the capital of the United States, Washington, D.C. This was a true declaration that Jesus is not dormant or dead. He is very much alive and able to change lives.

While the LGBTQ community has no hesitation in parading its doctrines and agendas before anyone, this Freedom March gave the ex-homosexual a clear voice. They were able to declare openly, right in our nation’s capital, that the lifestyle they once embraced was not God’s will for their life or anyone else’s life. They were able to freely stand up and say that they chose Christ and holiness over all of their sins.

There were no hidden agendas. Everyone was accepted. There were so many people from all cultures and nationalities. Everyone was important, no matter what titles they held or didn’t have. The love and respect for each other was so apparent. For a moment, I forgot I was 61 years old and just blended in with these young motivating marchers.

It was a true honor to be a part of this wonderful event. For this moment, every Christian had a voice. Each person in this march was speaking for so many others. The message was in the songs they sang and the messages they declared.

They spoke for the countless people who were not able to march and could not attend. They spoke for the person struggling with their sexuality. They spoke for the person who is gender disoriented and insecure. They spoke for the cross-dresser and the transgender. They spoke for everyone and anyone who is unsure of themselves and unable to find love and hope. They marched to show that there is hope and there is unconditional love available through our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Freedom March declared to everyone that our God is not dead. He is very much alive in all of us and anyone who will allow Him to come in. No one is refused. No sin is too ugly or vile. Jesus stands with outstretched arms for everyone (Ps. 136:12). That is true freedom, and it is only found in our loving Savior, Jesus Christ.

Brethren, what more is there to say?  Just this:

All things are possible with Jesus Christ!

George Soros: Latest Tactic is ‘Turn Texas Blue’ – Destroy the Constitution and Reinvent America

Since I began to write, this monster of a man has been the subject of many of my articles.  He continues to wreak havoc in the world, but his hunger to destroy the United States consumes him. Please understand that the illegal immigrant invasion of America is not happenstance; but is funded and orchestrated by Soros and his ilk.

He groomed and bankrolled Barack Hussein Obama to become the 44th president of the U.S.  Obama’s past was shrouded in secrecy. The American people could not even get an authentic birth certificate from him. Perhaps his true story will emerge someday.  I pray that we are not here when that happens.

Soros funded the so-called “Arab Spring” as Obama and Hillary Clinton followed his orders like the good puppets they were.  But the plans for the Middle East did not unfold as they had conspired.

Egypt eventually ousted Obama’s man, Mohamed Morsi, from the presidency and El-Sisi (head of the military) took control of that country. Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood cohorts sat in prison for years.  Morsi just died while in court – facing his accusers. Hundreds of Muslim Brotherhood members remain in jail in Egypt.

Forced Migration from the U.N.

As part of the 2015 Sustainable Development Goals Initiative, the U.N. instated a forced migration policy, which Soros would help to fund. Thousands upon thousands of Muslims (mainly from Syria and Iraq) were transported to various European countries. Many wondered why this was happening.

It was part of Soros’s and the U.N.’s plan to destabilize the nations of the world. They are desperately trying to bring the One Wold Government to fruition.

But it is said that the only thing standing in the way of this NWO is a strong America.

The invasion of illegals into America is a continuation of the U.N. plot to “destabilize” the nations through forced migration.  And which nation do you think the globalists under George Soros have in their crosshairs?   Of course – the United States of America!

Texas Republicans fear that Trump could loose Texas in 2020

Texas Republicans fear Trump could lose the state in 2020

Senator Ted Cruz’s near loss to Beto O’Rourke in 2018, is a strong indication that the Republican Party can no longer take Texas for granted.

Ted Cruz came close to losing his senate seat because he assumed that a Democrat could not win in reliably red Texas. Cruz was wrong. The Cruz campaign was disorganized and underfunded, which allowed Beto O’Rourke to make that election close.

President Trump and Ronna McDaniel better not make the same mistake. Trump is going to have to fight for Texas. It’s very simple: if Texas becomes a Blue State than we will never see a Republican President again.

Texas Republicans fear Trump could lose the state in 2020,

By: The Washington Examiner, David M. Drucker, June 5, 2019:

Top Republicans in Texas are sounding the alarm about 2020, warning President Trump could lose the usually reliably red state unless he devotes resources and attention to it typically reserved for electoral battlegrounds.

Texas GOP Chairman James Dickey has delivered this message to the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee, GOP donors, and activists in the state. Nationally, Republican operatives and donors have historically taken Texas for granted and directed their financial and organizational muscle to more competitive regions. Separately, Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, up for re-election next year, has spoken with new RNC co-chairman Tommy Hicks, a Lone Star State native, about concerns that Trump could lose the state.

Along with other senior Texas Republicans, Dickey and Cornyn are moving to secure the money and grassroots support needed to withstand a feared Democratic surge statewide in 2020. If left unchecked, they are convinced Texas could turn blue in a presidential contest for the first time since 1976.

“We are talking to everyone,” Dickey told the Washington Examiner this month while attending the RNC’s annual winter business meeting in New Mexico. “The challenges we face in Texas are very real.”

Texas controls 38 votes in the Electoral College, a massive haul without which Trump would be unlikely to reach 270 and win a second term. source

And WHY is this happening in Texas?  You can trace this back to Soros.  He has funded the mass illegal immigrant caravans which we have watched in horror. There is nothing we can do about it!

It’s been said that over 100,000 illegals are “lost in America”  – somewhere. Well, I’ll tell you where.  It’s wherever Soros strategically placed them!  George Soros is not playing games with the U.S.  As Evil as he is, he is also smart, and that is a deadly combination.

Donald Trump Warns Illegal Immigrants Released in the U.S.: ‘You Will Be Leaving Soon!’

President Donald Trump warned Friday that migrants and illegal immigrants released into the United States should not get comfortable.

“Please do not make yourselves too comfortable, you will be leaving soon!” he wrote on Twitter.

Trump commented as border officials are daily releasing thousands of immigrants apprehended at the border into the United States as part of the catch and release loopholes in U.S. immigration law.

Oh, I’m certain that Trump’s words put the fear of God into illegal’s hearts!    NOT!  They are laughing!

WARNING! George Soros has THIS planned… and it’s chilling

The Deep State isn’t used to losing—and if they can’t win, they’ll rig the game.

Sure, they go through the motions of holding an election every four years so the yokels in flyover country won’t get suspicious, but they know that behind the scenes—where it really counts—their word goes.

Donald Trump’s election upset all that, so the world’s richest, most powerful leftists met behind closed doors last week to plot how to worm their way back.

Rep. Jerrod Nadler gave them the heads-up that the investigations into Trump had gone bust, so they settled on a new tactic: They plan to “change the rules of our democracy” by 2020.

That spine-chilling quotation comes word-for-word from the secret agenda for the Democracy Alliance’s spring meeting in Austin, Texas.

The shadowy group has more than 100 anonymous “partners,” who promise to donate at least $200,000 apiece to far-left political groups hand-picked by the DA’s leaders. The group has donated $1.83 billion to radical and left-wing groups since George Soros co-founded it in 2005.

Last week, they met at Austin’s ritzy Four Seasons hotel to plan their next step—and The Horn has obtained their agenda.

The group makes no bones about its plans: It wants to “build progressive political power and sustain it” forever.

The donors admitted their “focus” is “to block the Trump/GOP path to 270 electoral votes and build as many pathways as possible to elect a progressive president” next year.

They plan to “amplify” the “harm that the Trump administration and conservatives have caused in Americans’ lives.”

There’s one problem: There’s no “harm!” Things haven’t been better in 50 years.

So, Soros and his buddies settled on Plan B: Destroy the Constitution and reinvent America.

The first step is for groups they fund – including the NAACP, MoveOn, and Planned Parenthood – to “run campaigns in 25 states by 2021 to change the rules of our democracy.”

They plan to make “structural reform” to the voting process itself.

They openly admit they plan to target “at least 6 states in 2019 while building capacity in at least 6 additional strategic states for expanded impact in 2020.”

That’s right: Whatever they say in public, their real agenda is rigging the election and forcing Trump out of office.

The agenda tears off the veil and talks about how desperately they want power—and how they’re willing to buy, cheat, or steal in order to get it.

Soros and his donors will spend $200 million “this year and into 2020 to permanently expand the progressive base of voters.”

That will let them build the “infrastructure needed to win elections”…because they realize they don’t have it now.

We don’t know exactly what they’ll propose—yet—but we know some of the states they’ll target.

They held a huge session called “Bigger than Beto: Turning Texas Blue.”

Soros’ long-term goal has always been turning Texas into San Francisco. But this time he called in former Mexican President Vicente Fox to discuss how illegal immigration can flip the buckle of the Bible Belt into the Democrats’ column for good.

Texas is the biggest prize, but they’re aiming for many, many others.

The Democracy Alliance will spend $10 million to organize radicals in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, and Virginia.

Another huge trophy is Pennsylvania, where donors will drop $8 million flooding the state with environmentalist propaganda. The coal mining and steel mill state shocked the country when it backed Donald Trump three years ago – the first time the state had backed a Republican since 1988. So, the leftists plan to tell low-information voters that Trump’s industrial jobs and prosperity will melt the ice caps, drown polar bears, and cause Armageddon.

They plan to reach entire “universes of women” in the Upper Midwest, like Wisconsin (where Trump won) and Minnesota (where he came close).

“Universes of women”?! Mitt Romney probably wishes he came up with that.

George Soros even plans a “Good Cop” act, trying to woo small-city America.

The Democracy Alliance will spend $2.5 million for its “Rural Organizing Project.”

Don’t fall for it! These private jet-setting elites look down on the middle class as much as ever.

The Democracy Alliance’s spring meeting agenda calls Trump supporters “racist, xenophobic, and generally hateful”—they might as well have said “basket of deplorables!”

They want the middle class gone. And once they get back into the Oval Office, they will never let Americans take power back again.

The spring meeting agenda says Soros’ goal is “building independent political power,” and his final goal is to “restore and expand structural power” in the United States.

That’s a fancy way of saying the group plans to shred the Constitution and get such a choke-hold on the Deep State that the voters will never break free. Now you know they plan to destroy the country our Founding Fathers established and generations of veterans died to defend. Whether they succeed is up to you.  source

I disagree with the last sentence of the article above.  The journalist states: “Whether they succeed is up to you.”

That is inaccurate.  Whatever happens in our next presidential election will be the will of God because HE is in full control.
