IMPORTANT: What Jesus WANTS For *Godly Relationships!*

For those who don’t yet know my testimony or my story, I’ll give a brief overview here:

I had met Jesus personally during a couple of near-death experiences (one at around 23 months of age and another at just 14 years old). And at age 19, I knew who Jesus was. I had a huge children’s illustrated bible at my disposal (shortly after near-death experience #1), as well as the “official” KJV version I took from a ski resort condo when I was 15.

But at age 19-20, I still had NO IDEA what a “Christian” even WAS, the full extent to WHAT Jesus had done for mankind on the cross, or about any of the “meanings” of the words (“grace”, “born again”, “salvation”, etc.) of what I was reading in the “official” version of the KJV bible I was reading. I was really struggling to understand what it all meant. Well, one day in the mail, I got a invitation to a play (put on by a church) called: “Heaven’s Gate and Hell’s Flames”.

At first, I didn’t want to go. I thought I’d feel like the odd one out compared to all the people who’d been going to church their whole lives! However, after some grappling with the Lord over it, (i.e. remember when Moses got nervous about being the spokesman of Israel?) I decided to bite the bullet and take a chance and go, anyways! Well, I’m glad I did! First of all, I guy I had gone to High-School with had played the part of one of the angels! So hey, atleast I knew SOMEONE there, right?

And after the play, they handed out some FREE literature (Specifically, a small, brand-new pocket-sized “God’s Word: New Testament & Psalms). They told me to read it, look over it and then call them if I had any questions about what I was reading. They also assigned to me something called a “prayer accountability partner”, even though I didn’t really know what that meant at the time. And even though I was grateful for the FREE play and FREE literature, I was still somewhat hesitant about “attending church”. I just felt OVERWHELMED!

So I didn’t end up becoming a member of that church. Instead, I thanked them for the free bible and begun to read that God’s Word translation from cover to cover at home, in my own free time. But what really got me were the very first introductory pages! They just explained things to me SO WELL! Plus they even put the most important things IN BOLD! I knew that Jesus had some wonderful things in store for me by having them give me that easy-to-understand version of the New Testament! It’s just exactly what I needed at that time!

And as I begin to read and pour over the pages, I FINALLY began to understand what all those “words” meant (i.e. “grace”, “born again”, “salvation”), about what Jesus did, about how we’re all sinners and about how ONLY Jesus can save us from our sins! And so once I felt I had a firm grasp and understanding on THAT God’s Word translation, I quickly decided I was then gonna read the “official” King James Version, cover to cover, no matter how long it took!

(Please keep in mind that I had NO job at this point, had broken up with my S.O. AND had gotten kicked out of college! I was living off of savings/credit cards at that point. So for 8 months straight, that’s how Jesus orchestrated that time in my life so that it was just me and Him at that time! And what a wonderful BLESSING that turned out to be! Jesus was giving me a break from EVERYTHING and EVERYONE so that I could PEACEFULLY learn more about HIM and HIS GOSPEL!)

I understood most of everything I had read and was “amazed” at all the “love stories” (Boaz and Ruth, Jacob and Rachel, Isaac and Rebekah) that I had read! And I was young and filled with promise! I thought: “Hey, if it could happen to these folks in the bible, it can happen to ME, too!” I had this idea or picture in my mind that I’d meet my spouse by the age of 25, have kids by 30, and have a house by 35! In fact, don’t we ALL have pre-conceived notions in our mind like that?

So even though I had the KNOWLEDGE of Jesus and his gospel by age 21, I didn’t quite yet have the FAITH in Jesus that’s required! And so, for many years afterwards, that LACK OF FAITH in Jesus (concerning my love-life and considering other areas of my life) did me some SERIOUS HARM!

In fact, I was “mad at Jesus” for not bringing me a spouse for such a long, long time! I’m ashamed to even type this across the page but my “thoughts” for a LONG time concerning my love-life were the following: Jesus, you bring EVERYONE ELSE a spouse but not ME! Why? What’s wrong with ME? What are you punishing ME for? What wrong have “I” done against thee? Why am “I” not so-called deserving of a spouse but yet, other people seemingly ARE? Those people don’t even worship you AT ALL and they got a spouse before me! Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Tell me WHY!!!!???” 

I ended up not only being angry and bitter for MANY YEARS towards a few people that had majorly hurt me in my life but I also later ended up in FOUR consecutive abusive relationships! (Note: I had gotten so tired of “waiting on God” at that particular point in my life that I decided to “take matters into my own hands”).

Though none of them were physically abusive (I atleast got lucky in THAT regard), they were all emotionally, psychologically, mentally and SPIRITUALLY ABUSIVE! They CUT AWAY at my self-esteem, made me doubt myself, somewhat made me doubt God/Jesus, tampered with my faith, got me feeling VERY hopeless and depressed and ALMOST completely RUINED ME as a Christian! 

I had SO MUCH HATE in my heart towards the individuals who hurt me. “How could they?” I thought: “Jesus, how could you ALLOW that to happen to me at the hands of these people? Don’t you care about me AT ALL, Jesus? I was in this bitter, bitter place of anger, hurt, resentment, restlessness and mental/emotional ANGUISH! I was TORMENTED by the angered hatred I felt for those those individuals!

Odd thing is, I didn’t even really WANT to hate those individuals but my PRIDE got in the way of that! Even when Jesus gently said to me in my spirit: Told ya so! You should’ve listened to me and done things MY way, instead of your OWN way”, I was STILL stubborn about it. “But you don’t understand, Lord! You don’t understand what it’s like to be ME!” And the Lord seemed to say to me in my spirit, in response: “I CREATED you! I know you better than you even know YOURSELF!” 

It wasn’t really until I was about 30 years old or so that Jesus began to “soften” my heart towards the individuals who had hurt me and I began to see how my hate and resentment was EATING AWAY AT ME ON THE INSIDE! The Holy Spirit even revealed to me that my “hate” was eating away at MY SOUL! Wow! What a powerful, convicting description!

Eventually, I surrendered all that hurt, anger, fear, resentment to Jesus. I prayed: “Jesus, I don’t WANT to hate or resent anymore, it’s already taken SO MUCH from me! I WANT to be able to FORGIVE, so please HELP ME to FORGIVE and MOVE ON, as I know I can’t do it alone……only WITH your divine help, Lord!

And ya know what? Jesus IS faithful and true! He DID help me to forgive them. He pointed out SEVERAL things to me. First of all, he informed me that the people who hurt me were themselves hurting on the inside. Secondly, they didn’t even fully consciously realize how much they had hurt me. Thirdly, Jesus wanted me to know that it wasn’t my fault and that their OWN healing would ALSO someday come about BY my forgiving them! Wow! Such powerful words of wisdom!

And AS I forgave them [Jesus had me starting out by writing “forgiveness letters” to each person who had hurt me – though I had never hand-delivered the letters to them personally], I felt SO MUCH BAGGAGE lift OFF of me and my SPIRIT! I felt FREE for the first time in a VERY long time! My SOUL felt FREE! I felt PEACE! I felt LOVE! I felt JOY! I felt CONTENTMENT!

I no longer had “heart palpitations” or “anxiety attacks!” It was like a HUGE ANCHOR had been LIFTED off of me! I no longer felt “weighed down” by anger and hate! In fact, I was the happiest I had ever been! In fact, people started to notice. The relationships with the people who had hurt me began to DRASTICALLY improve! It was nothing short of a MIRACLE! (This was when I was around age 34 or so, I believe?)

However, even at 34, there was still alot of “spiritual work” to be done! Because at THAT point in my life, I STILL had no idea about the TRUTH about church history, the Judeo roots of Christianity, etc. I would learn all of that later (like, age 36 or so). It’s funny how the Lord reveals things to me in “stages”. Sometimes, I wish he’d reveal things to me all at once, but that’s a different post for a different day! 😉 Jesus has also (in the last several months) helped me to soften my heart towards HIMSELF, concerning certain things in my life! 

Okay, now fast forward to today. Even though I’ve been a Christian for about 20 years now, I’ve only most recently learned what Jesus expects for a GODLY RELATIONSHIP (be it a relationship, a friendship, a marriage, etc.) And what I learned in the series just BLEW ME AWAY! Wow! How had I not ever seen this before? And then I got to thinking. How many OTHERS out there have not seen this before? Probably SEVERAL

I’ve most recently viewed an 8-part series and a powerful one-hour+ sermon on the matter. And ALL of them were eye-opening! And ALL of them ask the same questions: “Am I seeking a spouse with the RIGHT spiritual mind, heart and attitude before God? If not, why? If so, is it GOD’S time for me to have a spouse yet? If not, am I willing to wait on God instead of giving in to my own selfish desires? And if already married, am I bringing Christ INTO the marriage?” 

I will embed all the videos down below. [NOTE: PLEASE GET OUT A PEN AND PAPER AND TAKE LOTS OF NOTES!!!!!] I pray and hope that these will help you and enlighten you as much as they helped and enlightened ME! 😉 The first video is entitled “5 Keys To Identifying Your SoulMate” by Toure Roberts in L.A. and the next SEVERAL videos are the 8-PART series by Michael Todd from Transformation Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma!

G.S.A.: The New “Justified Perversion”

Just when I thought nothing could get worse here in America, we’ve now had FOUR published cases of something “experts” are now coining “G.S.A.” (which stands for Genetic Sexual Attraction). And how the “experts” define it is THIS:

“Incest between close relatives, such as siblings or half-siblings, a parent and offspring, or first and second cousins, who first meet as adults”.

It should INSTEAD be called “Glorified Sodomy Attribution”, since that’s essentially what they (the “secular experts”) are now trying to do. And it’s UNGODLY!

Here are the SIX examples seen in the news most recently: [what is this world coming to, folks? ;( ] [Note: For the first two, you must click on the HEADLINE to link to the article!]

Trying to dumb down the schools and education system wasn’t good enough for Satan. Neither was introducing LGBT doctrines, dogma, etc. Heck, even legalizing gay marriage wasn’t good enough for him. Satan’s gotta keep taking these “perversions” FARTHER & FARTHER. So it is with G.S.A. (Genetic Sexual Attraction).

Even the NAME makes it sound “innocent” enough……as in….“oh….so it’s kinda like a mental illness that they can’t help…….so if they can’t help it, it’s beyond their control……well……we should allow this then, since they can’t really help it”. (REALLY? ARE YOU FREAKIN’ KIDDING ME?)

That’s EXACTLY the “justification argument” that Satan’s gunning for. Because hey, if “gay marriage” is legal, then what ELSE shouldn’t be “legal”, right? Alot of folks don’t realize that the legalization of gay marriage in all 50 U.S. states on or around June 26th, 2015 paved the way for OTHER things to soon be “legalized” (or, at the very least, FOUGHT to be legalized by “fringe groups”).

In a nutshell, the number ONE argument for gay marriage was more or less: “They can’t help it, they were born that way. And since they were born that way, it’s a permanent part of who they are, therefore, they should have unalienable rights to marriage, should they so desire”. 

Well, just take the word “Gay” out of “Gay Marriage” and what do you get? Answer: “Incest Marriage”, “Pedo Marriage”, “Polygamy Marriage”, Bestiality Marriage”, “Inanimate Object Marriage”, etc.

Ofcourse, the legal arguments are going to be, “Well…..if homosexuals can marry, why can’t I, a (insert any ungodly noun/word here) marry?”

First, it was the “Gay Movement”. Then it was the “Transgender Movement”. And NOW, it’s the “Incest Movement”. After the “Incest Movement”, they’ll move on to the “Polygamy Movement” or perhaps vice versa. And not long after that will come the “Pedo Movement”, and the “Bestiality Movement”. Don’t believe me? Look at current news, in the last year or so!

Why are we JUST NOW starting to see more and more news stories about “incest” and SEEING the word “G.S.A.” (Genetic Sexual Attraction) everywhere? I’ll TELL you why……it’s because the media is pre-conditioning EVERY American (as well as global citizen around the world) to ACCEPT “incest”, just like they did with homosexuality and transgenderism. Because they figure if the average global citizen sees it more and more and more in the media, that they will grow DESENSITIZED to it and then, eventually over time, ACCEPT it.

And to be blunt here, that is State-Sanctioned Mind Control at its greatest, folks! That’s why it’s EVER SO IMPORTANT for us to be immersed in God’s written Word (the bible) to know WHAT is true and what is NOT true! Cause otherwise, you WILL be deceived by the One World Government System someday, MARK MY WORDS!

The bible is NOT something that needs to be rewritten, or reinterpreted. God said it and that settles it. There’s NO need for humans or scientists to try to figure out how we all got here on this planet (the bible says how we did). Just like there’s NO need to ponder if there’s life after death (the bible says there IS). Plus there’s no need for people to question if God condemns homosexuality/sodomy or not — The Lord clearly DOES condemn it in both Old AND New Testaments in 28+ passages —

https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2016/04/18/even-jesus-christ-condemned-homosexuality-in-new-testament/

Just like there’s ALSO no need for any human to question what they’re supposed to do with the rest of their lives (the bible states EVERY human’s purpose on this Earth!)

To me, it just BOGGLES THE MIND why there are SO MANY “scientists” and “experts” who think they have to try all these complicated formulas and calculations to try figure out how humans got here on this planet (CERN, anyone?) when the answer is right there, right in front of them (the holy bible!)

And quite frankly, the Lord laughs at them in their folly! In fact, Psalms 14:1 states the following: “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good”.

But all in all, EACH “argument” used to try to justify “sin” and/or “perversion” is based on ONE principle and ONE principle, ONLY……to destroy the Almighty image of God.

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them”

– Genesis 1:27

Satan HATES us, absolutely can not STAND humans (EVEN those who proclaim to worship him). Why? Because we humans were all made in the mighty image of God. And Satan DESPISES the image of God. Therefore, he’s trying to do whatever he can to DESTROY THE IMAGE OF GOD (Homosexuality, Transexuality, Etc.)

What’s more, the image of God has to do with GENDER. Genesis 1:27 says he created them male and female. He biologically designed males and females to come together as ONE unit, in ONE united marriage. Therefore, traditional marriage is in the image of God. So what INCEST/SODOMY/PEDO/POLYGAMY/OBJECTOPHILIA does is PROFANE THE IMAGE OF GOD. That’s why Satan wants these things so bad for humanity.

In fact, Revelation 12:12 states: “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time

Translation? The Devil’s angry and knows his time is short….Why? Because Jesus Christ will soon return to the Earth someday and wipe him out. And with all the world chaous and moral/spiritual ROT happening here in America and in today’s world, it won’t be too much longer, now.

So, in a nutshell, Satan knows he gots to get crackin’, when it comes to trying to take AS MANY SOULS away from Almighty God as he possibly can! And sexual perversion is one of the NUMBER ONE ways in which he DOES just that, folks! Same with the “justification” for it.

In fact, in God’s eyes, if you are a self-professed “Christian” who believes that sodomites of ANY shape or form should have the “right” to marry, the Lord God doesn’t consider that any different than YOU being a “sodomite” YOURSELF, so please remember that, folks! (In God’s eyes, to “justify” ANY sin, for ANY reason, is likened onto partaking IN/OF that “sin”, ITSELF!)

Heck, even the ANIMALS of the world know something is up…..that something big’s about to happen……Have you seen the bison “peacing out” from Yellowstone? Have you ever stopped to wonder WHY? What do the ANIMALS know that most of humans today DON’T know?

In Genesis 9:12-17, God promised Noah that he would NEVER AGAIN destroy the world with a GLOBAL FLOOD:

“And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth” 

But God NEVER promised he wouldn’t destroy the world again with FIRE! Therefore, many biblical experts are now pointing to 2 Peter 3:10 as PROOF of that point:

“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up”

Wow folks, that’s some pretty heavy stuff right there………And I know ALOT of non-believers and/or lukewarm believers in Christ are probably thinking “yeah? So what? The smoke inhalation will kill people off before the fire does, so they won’t even feel a thing when they die, so big deal”. But ONE thing they’re forgetting is that that the LAKE OF FIRE (the ETERNAL JUDGEMENT of God) WILL LAST FOR ETERNITY! And instead of smoke inhalation killing people off, they will instead be forced to INHALE smoke inhalation, AND….FEEL the hot fire on their flesh for ALL OF ETERNITY! The bible calls this the 2nd death.

The bottom line? NO “sin” is justified for ANY reason, in God’s eyes, ESPECIALLY SODOMY. And that’s all incest/homosexuality/pedo/poly/objectophilia really IS……sodomy……Because any two living humans that weren’t meant for natural, traditional marriage are, when they have sex with one another, committing sodomy in God’s eyes, like it or not.

All of the news articles about G.S.A. (atleast to ME, anyways) seem to have some sort of sympathetic BENT to them, making the participants out to be VICTIMS of sorts. But the REALITY is that NONE of those folks are 100% right with Jesus Christ. NOT ONE. For if they WERE, Jesus would tell them in their minds, hearts, bodies and spirits that what they are doing (in their incestous actions) is WRONG and that they need to REPENT and stop doing it!

Though one thing is for sure. We’ve got to PRAY for these poor folks! We’ve got to pray that Jesus Christ will wake them up and make them realize the WRONG that they’re doing before it’s too late for them! We’ve also got to pray that any other people out there that are “on the brink” of getting involved in an incestuous relationship of sorts will stop dead in their tracks and THINK before they act!

And as time goes on, there’s probably gonna be an attempt to REVERSE all incest laws on the books. We’re also probably gonna see (in the future) more and more news articles with G.S.A./about G.S.A. and might even see a movie or TV show dealing with the topic. But remember that ALL SODOMY comes about from DEMONS OF LUST. That’s WHY we need to pray for these folks and pray that Satan and his demons lose their grip on them. And remember: all things are possible in the name of the Lord!
