Who are children of God?
1 John 3:8-10 The one who practices sin is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the very start. This is why the Son of God was revealed, to destroy the works of the devil. Anyone born of God refuses to practice sin, because God’s seed abides in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil can be distinguished: Anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is anyone who does not love his brother..
What is NOT a reason for marriage to a child of God?
- Marriage is not a substitute for deliverance in the area of sexual immorality 1 Cor 7: 1-16. Please read verse 17 clearly. Get delivered from sexual sin if you are burning with passion for sex because it will not go away after getting married. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
- Marriage is not a substitute for God’s love and for that matter joy , Nehemiah 8:10
- Marriage is not a way to bring an unbeliever to God . It may not work when you try to be a missionary by marrying an unbeliever . 2 Corinthians 6:14
- Marriage is not another trophy or attainment in life or a show casing forum but a God’s team with a mission. Gen 1:27
- A wife or husband is not from man, but from God who understands the heart of men Genesis 2:18
- Marriage is not a man’s idea. It’s God’s . You should not entertain pressure from other people to marry, Proverbs 18:22
- To marry is not a duty or an obligation but an addition to your purpose in life,Proverbs 18:22. Marriage may come to you as a duty or an obligation from your social environment
- You don’t marry so that you can gain faithfulness. Faithfulness is a fruit of the Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23
- You don’t marry for riches. The package may bind your soul to evil. 2 Chronicles 18:1
- You don’t marry so that you can get a source of love. You need to draw your love from God. If you do that in marriage it’s not enough and obviously leads to idolatry (worshipping your spouse) and can be a source of many sorrows . Remember that your spouse is not your God and is a fallen human just like you. No wonder there so many broken hearts in our world today all bruised in action in pursuit of love. John 4:4-26 gives us a story of a woman who had gone to draw water from Jacob’s well. She had been through several marriages seeking affection and love but never got it. Jesus tried as much as possible to explain how she can draw love and affection from a well that doesn’t dry up. Just like any one of us, she was not getting it. All of a sudden she became religious! She started telling Jesus about some useless believe of how her ancestors worshipped God in the mountains!
What is marriage as a child of God?
- Marriage is God’s idea , Genesis 2:18. By His special grace some believers may never marry 1 Corinthians 7:8
- Marriage is between a man and a woman, Lev. 18:22
- Marriage unites two people (man and woman) into one flesh, Mark 10:8
- Marriage is a servant-hood to each other, Genesis 2:18, 1 Corinthians 7: 1- 6
- Finding a wife or a husband is God’s duty not yours , your friends’ or your parents’. Proverbs 19:14
- Marriage is leaving and cleaving to your spouse, extended family is not part of it. Ephesians 5:31
- Marriage is the most sacred relationship between a man and a woman and should not be defiled by a sexual sin. Hebrews 13:4
- Marriage is a continuation of God’s creation of humans on earth, so if you can, multiply. Genesis 1:28
- Marriage is supposed to be a happy union between a man and a woman who are on mutual agreement on matters of faith , Ecclesiastes 9:9, Proverbs 12:4
- To marry or not to marry are both a blessing and a gift, so don’t be pressured to marry. 1 Corinthians 7: 7
- In marriage, our goal is to give love and affection other than to get love and affection from our spouses . Our spouses respond by submitting to our love. If we have a perennial loneliness within our hearts, it means that we can’t offer love to anyone including our spouses. This is the worst time to look for a relationship if you are single. If you are married you may easily fall into an affair without much guilt because something deep inside of you is blaming your spouse for the loneliness. So the best thing to do is to go to God and let God fill us with His love . Sometimes this is a sign that we need to repent some hidden sins and be reconciled with God. Ephesians 5:19-21, Song of Solomon 4:10, 7:10
Dangers of a Marriage that is not God’s will and it’s outside the general bibilical guide on marriages
God’s will include; if to marry or not, who to marry and when to marry the person
- Suffering the Consequences of Disobedience. Right from Adam, Moses & Aaron, Soul, David and the whole Israel suffered for disobeying God. Disobedience is a form of rebellion and God hates rebellion. 1 Samuel 15:23-24
- Collecting Curses (from impure spirits, generational curses, un-confessed sins, wilful sins, idolatry, etc). If you marry someone that God has not ordained to be your spouse, or your spouse at that period and time, you risk marrying someone who could be an unbeliever or not delivered or a vessel of satanic attacks due to curses that have not been dealt with and still flowing freely in their family lineage. These are inherited curses. Number 31:17-18 God knew that there will be a spiritual havoc if the Israeli men married women from pagan religions who had already slept with men. Sex is one of the tools the devil uses to pass demons from one person to another. Israelis were asked to spare the virgins. I have witnessed persons who didn’t have personal struggles with sins start doing so and continue doing so unable to stop after a brief sexual relationship with someone. They get a permanent resident, like a spirit of sexual lust, a disease causing Spirit that kills the body immunity and even mental illnesses. Impure spirits are passed on in an intimate relationship. One can easily stop the works of the flesh but evils spirits living in us can’t be stopped unless they are cast out.
- Losing Your Calling. I have seen godly men and women go back to heathen lifestyles, lose their calling, churches splitting, ministries crashing after a marriage. Its only God that knows the heart of the person we are are to marry. Don’t cave in to pressure, deceived by beauty or driven by evil passions. Solomon and David are good examples of persons that went astray after marrying outside of God’s will.
- Losing Your Identity. Men have also lost identity and become paper husbands with no Godly authority over their family. Men who marry women who are hosts of anti-Christ spirits like the Jezebel spirit , may find it hard to carry their God ordained spiritual authority in families and churches.The main medium of operation by this antichrist spirit is witchcraft and divination. This spirit counterfeits the Holy Spirit and decernment making the immediate spiritual environment toxic, husbands and close family members feel powerless and therefore cave in to manipulation. 1Kings 19. This spirit strips up the authority from the man and uses it for its own selfish needs. The spirit constantly bombards the man with witchcraft. These are the kind of men you see walking around with stooped shoulders. They’ve been reduced to a wet chook. Unfortunately, the nature of a male makes them a no match to witches. This I will say could be the biggest danger of marriages in in the body of Christ today. The presence and the influence of this spirit is underrated. Men who have grown up under the influence of this spirt are more likely to marry a woman hosting this spirit. They are conditioned to it and their conscious and unconscious mind take it as normal.
- Facing Daily Sorrows of Unfaithfulness. Faithfulness is a fruit of the Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23. If your spouse is operating under any other spirit then you don’t expect them to be faithful to you or for that matter to anybody. The knowledge that your spouse cheats on you at will and you can’t prove it or if you can, others can’t or if all can prove it you can’t lift a finger because you are under a form of manipulation, gives a hollow feeling of hopelessness. Witchcraft could be a simple act of manipulation of someone’s else will or use of occult to confuse people and stop them from reasoning (It works best against persons that don’t believe in it). When Paul in Galatians 3:1 said, “You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you?” he was serious about the bewitching part and it was not a joke. It happens today to whole congregations , family units or even nations operating under a cloud of deception Acts 8: 9Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. He boasted that he was someone great, 10and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, “This man is rightly called the Great Power of God.” 11They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his sorcery.
- Losing your clarity in making decisions: Just like the foolish Galatians who didn’t know who bewitched them, you may end up struggling with clarity, if bombarded with manipulation and witchcraft. Sound mind comes from the Holy Spirit but if your environment does not support sincere worship of the living God, the Holy Spirit is absent and what you get is a constant confusion and spiritual attack. Lack of peace and sleep is a good example of spiritual attacks from within a person. Making wrong decisions is another. If you have a trail of wrong decision making, watch out you could be under a witchcraft attack. The Spirit of God drives out worry and gives us clarity from a sound mind. A sound mind and lack of fear brings peace and so you get to sleep. 2 timothy 1: 7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Same Sex Marriages
Same-sex sexual union is condemned in the bible. Lev 18:22
It’s true that in our world today we have persons that have been born with a different sexual orientation .
We need to show love not to discriminate people because they were born with a noticeable curse on them
All persons born with a different sexual orientation needs love from people around them. They go through lots of awful discrimination and yet it’s not really their fault that they were born that way.We were all born with sins and curses but fortunately for us we didn’t have the curse of being a homosexual. I agree that you can also pick a demon from your social environment or through a chosen lifestyle.
As Born again believers we should be in the forefront in showing a non-judgemental love without approving the lifestyle. Approving will defile our fellowships and relationship with God.
- I believe that if you were born with the two sex organs, then this is an abnormality like any other and should be dealt with as so medically or socially.
- There are those who are are complete males or females including the hormones but for some reason they are genuinely attracted to the same sex or both. Their sexual orientation is switched or mixed. Just like unclean spirits bring about abnormallities like allergies and diseases that can’t be explained, I believe the presence of a homosexual demon is to blame for the switched feelings such people have. That’s why science can’t explain this because science is material and much below spiritual.
Governments solutions didn’t work because they were driven by the wrong tools, non spiritual
Ignorance has driven governments and churches to start counselling programmes to try and ‘help’ people. Statistics show that this method has failed. The only option that was left to many governments and religious organisations, was to give approval for same sex marriages. This has given rise to changes of legislation in governments and even church governing structures all over the world.
Who do you blame for this? The government or the gay men and women? My answer is, none should be blamed!
Who is to blame then?
The blame should come to us believing Christians for not being able to deliver our God given solutions. We instead engage in useless religious practices that have no spiritual value to anybody. We spend time indulging ourselves in all acts of idolatry and forget to seek and worship the one true God. Seeking God will equip us with the right spiritual tools to fight evil. Homosexuality is a spiritual problem and can only be solved that way as a demon. Jesus Has given us power over impure spirits. With signs and wonders a believing homosexual can be delivered. This is better than accommodating the homosexual spirit in our church structure. We however can accommodate the person and show love to them.
Mathew 10:8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.
What is the real problem behind homosexuality?
Believe it or not anything that cannot be easily cured or detected by medical science, it has a root cause in an impure spirit. Some of these spirits enter infants in the womb. So when the child is born with this impure spirit we say that they are born gay. In some parts of the world ‘liberated’ parents and relatives notice these signs early and start bombarding the poor kid with reading and dressing materials to train them in what they believe is the child’s sexual orientation . Some are subjected to hormones therapy. In other parts of the world pure discrimination is directed towards the poor kid. They may even be killed. There is no winning side to a person with a homosexual demon.
This is a spirit not flesh problem. It cannot be eliminated by counselling, flesh can. The impure spirit needs to be cast out.Statistics show that if the person is willing, this method has worked 100%. There many testimonies of persons delivered from the spirit of homosexuality online. You can search if you wish stories like “homosexual gets delivered by Jesus Christ ”
What is the way forward for a homosexual? Deliverance!
What must I do if i was born this way and I have a perfectly healthy body?
You have to humble yourself and decide if you want to remain this way or you wish to be normal and have same sexual orientation as your body
There is a stigma attached to believing that you were born with a demon of homosexuality but what is important to know is that instead of subjecting your body to hormones and sexual organs change through surgery and all that which is a bit messy, there is an easier option.
Jesus came so that all humans may have life and have it in abundance
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full
Jesus came to set you free from that spiritual bondage. Homosexuality is a bondage not an orientation. You don’t have to go through years of counselling or surgery. The demon stole your real identity. You can claim it back when that demon of homosexuality is cast out!
If you are willing to treat it as an evil spirit or a curse living in you then you are 80% on the way to deliverance
You first need to renounce and denounce the spirit of homosexuality in you
Then plead the blood of Jesus on this spirit.
Just like any other spirit, comfront it with the fact that Jesus hanged on the cross to take away our curses
Galatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.”
Read the following scripture and meditate on it then listen to the video clip below. You have the right to get your freedom from this bondage.
Luke 4:18-19 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor“
