A friend of mine who saw this post before posting advised me against posting it or writing anything about Homosexuality because, according to him, the post could anger the gay community.
On the contrary, I told him that I am not writing to condemn the gay community or my writing against them per se, but to reason with them and as well as offer a solution. It is our actions that define who we are.
The late Apostle Oguguo Ikejihovah of blessed memory of Jesus Power Liberation And Gospel Ministry International used to say, “We may know what we are doing, but what causes or influences us to do those things we may never know.”
Often time, our actions are caused by invisible controlling powers, and Bishop David Oyedepo wrote a book titled “Conquering controlling Powers”. In other words, there are controlling powers, and some of these powers are directly or indirectly responsible for our actions, even though we may not know or accept them.
Talking about homosexuality, it is a reality, as nobody can claim that he was born gay or a lesbian but only grew up to observe that they are gay or lesbian. I wish to ask, why is every man or woman not gay or lesbian? The point is that gay or lesbian spirits are the controlling powers, and those practicing them are never in control of their actions.
We have different spirits controlling us, and when the gay or lesbian spirit is in a man or woman, the person automatically or will surely become gay or lesbian. Have you seen the reason we should not preach against or condemn the gay community?
Another point is that there are men who were known to be gay before, but after such people successfully went for deliverance, they are no longer gay as many of them are today married to an opposite $ex with children.
In another development, there are known preachers who were known to preach against homosexuality and lesbian before, but along the line, they allowed that spirit to get hold of them, and they ended up becoming gay or lesbian themselves.
In other words, the gay community cuts across even well-known “men of God”. That is to say, the spirit in you will be controlling you and your actions, whether you accept or like it or not.
To prove my point and as I said earlier, there are known gay or lesbians before, but after their deliverance, they turned to live normal lives. Today, they are having relationships with the opposite $ex and no more with their fellow man or woman.
For that reason, I laugh at men or women who think they can overcome such spirits themselves. The same is with parents who think they can use medical science to cure their children of this spirit of homosexuality.
Also, I wish to point out that the issue is so deep and goes beyond our imagination. There are some so-called men of God or pastors with which such spirits are in them and controlling them. They practice homosexual activities secretly.
There are many judges or judicial officers who have such a spirit and are being controlled by that homosexual spirit. Nobody should ever condemn the gay community because they are not fully in control of their actions. What if any of your children should get held off by that gay spirit?
Will you condemn or kill such children because of it? Often, we talk against the gay community as if they are responsible for their actions. It is not so, it is just like a man over 40 years of age who goes to rape babies less than three years old. The same is true of men who goes to rape their biological daughters.
Such men are not in control of themselves or their actions, but the controlling powers compelled them to do it. Obviously, the first step to conquering that controlling powers is to accept that such actions are responsible or influenced by invisible spiritual forces.
As I said above, nobody was born gay or lesbian but grew up to observe that they are gay or lesbian, and as long as they celebrate that controlling power, they cannot be free from them.
If you are gay or lesbian, to prove the truth of what I am saying, submit yourself for deliverance before any deliverance ministers of God. After a successful deliverance, let’s prove if you will still like to practice homosexuality again.
Another reason why you should take action to conquer or free yourself from those controlling powers is that our maker (God) condemns it.
Our God condemns such a practice or actions, meaning that He did not create us to be practicing homosexuality. See the following Bible verses:
1) Leviticus 18:22 ‘You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.
2) Leviticus 18:23 “Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is a perversion.
3) Leviticus 20:13 ‘If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.
4) 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. If God condemns any form of homosexuality, then the controlling powers responsible for it must be the work of the enemy and must be dealt with or conquered.
In conclusion, the same way I advise the gay community is the same way I advise men who are not gay but are influenced to commit certain unimaginable sexual acts. I mean men who have the $exual urge to rape their daughters or little babies.
If you happened to be having such a problem above, the Spirit of sexual perversion is controlling you and must be dealt with or conquered. And the solution or the way to conquer these controlling powers lies in taking responsibility to seek and undergo deliverance. After a successful deliverance, you will surely be free from these controlling powers. Shalom.
