Gay vs Smoking – Which is worse?
I just did a Periscope on this topic. The Lord gave me this lesson a few days ago. I was afraid to go live and do it. I just felt like I do not have a following and what am I going to say! Will people receive the message? Will they receive what I am trying to say and get across to them? All this and more entered my mind. Then God came in with truth and peace.
Right, you do not have a following. If I do not ever get on and build I will always be thinking I have no following and wondering who will watch it. Yes, they will receive the message because it is from Me. Once I removed myself and believing that this was me speaking or doing this in my strength, God could come through. All my thoughts conquered when the feeling to do this scope would not loose and I realized that I was running. God filled me with the scriptures to use and then I wrote them down in the order that He gave them to me in. I added nothing or removed anything.
I thank God for trusting me.
The scriptures are as follows:
1 john 1:9
1 John 5:17
Matthew 15:11, 18, 20
2 Corinthians 6:16
Romans n1:21, 28-32
I had more trolls on this scope speaking than any other scope. I did not erase them or block them or mention them. Some fell off on their own – resist them and they will flee. Another was on until the end. They were just speaking because they assumed that I was anti-gay. I am anti-sin. So, as they focused on bashing the bible and me and gay and smoking I continued with what God gave me. After I finished with what God was saying He allowed me to give my testimony. I let them know that I too, was an alcoholic and chain smoker. I let them know that when God called me in September 2015 I was lying next to my girlfriend of over a year. No sin is greater than another. The wages of all sin is death. I am not here to judge. To whom much is given much is required. Therefore, God has forgiven me of my many sins and I offer this same forgiveness to people whom I know, or God says need it.
God does not like sin. He loves His creation. I love you as Christ loves you, His church. Amen. Watch the video. Read the scriptures. Repent. Call on the name of the Lord and you will be saved. Saved from what? From death. Read the sins listed in Romans 1 and Galatians 5 and chose to do them no more. That is how you stay saved. As you consciously refuse sin you get closer to God. His presence and His power. You become filled with His Spirit. He will lead you and guide you.
Say this prayer: Lord, thank you for choosing me. I believe that you are Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God and that you died on the cross for me. Lord, I repent of my sins. I turn from doing and committing sins. Lord, forgive me of my sins, knowingly and unknowingly. Lord, thank you. Lord, by acknowledging you I call upon your name and you said that I should be saved. I want to be saved from sin. I believe through this prayer that you have come into my heart. Thank you for hearing me. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
