Good Morning!

Romans 1:18-32 “For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them. For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God [this means they don’t allow God to display His power over their flesh by His living in them,1 which would keep them from committing such super-sinful abominations as homosexuality. God is given glory when we say no to the tempter’s temptations. By their refusing to give glory to God, they falsely project to the world that God is] an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, LEAVING THE NATURAL USE OF THE WOMAN, burned in their lust one toward another; MEN WITH MEN working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor EFFEMINATE, nor ABUSERS OF THEMSELVES with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the Kingdom of God.”

Revelation 21:8 “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the ABOMINABLE, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” [The definition of abomination is God’s feeling of extreme disgust, hatred, abhorrence, detestation, and loathing. It is that which is abominable, hateful, wicked, or shamefully vile, such as extreme sin.]

Genesis 19:1-13 “But before they [the two angels] lay down [to sleep], the men of the city [the homosexuals], even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all [the homosexuals] the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.” They wanted to have sex with them, men with men, which again, is stated in Romans 1:32 to be worthy of eternal death.2 I Cor. 6:9-10 states people such as these shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. If God doesn’t allow homosexuals in Heaven, He also will not allow them to take part in or be a part of the true church of God, the body of Christ, His future bride. 3 The homosexuals were smitten with blindness. The Lord sent the angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah and all the homosexuals with all the other sinners in those cities.

Leviticus 18:22, 26-30 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination…Ye shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you. For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off [stoned to death] from among their people. Therefore shall ye keep Mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the Lord your God.” Again, the definition of abomination is God’s feeling of extreme disgust, hatred, abhorrence, detestation, and loathing. It is that which is abominable, hateful, wicked, or shamefully vile, such as extreme sin.

Leviticus 20:13 “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

Deuteronomy 23:17 “There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a SODOMITE of the sons of Israel [or of spiritual Israel, the body of Christ].” Revelation 21:27 states, “And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that DEFILETH, neither whatsoever worketh ABOMINATION, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”4

I Kings 14:24 “And there were also SODOMITES in the land: and they did according to all the ABOMINATIONS of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.”

I Kings 15:11-12 “And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father. And he took away the SODOMITES out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.”

II Kings 23:7 “And [the man of God] brake down the houses of the sodomites.” These are not my words. They are the Words of Almighty God.

The message that you’ve just read was thoroughly distributed at the 108th Annual Episcopalian Convention held October 16-18, 2003, in Texarkana, Texas. We thank God that the clergy and laymen at this convention made a strong decision. They decided not to fund the national Episcopalian church. My congratulations to this convention. Bravo to them for reproving the world—rebuking the homosexuals in the love of God. “This is the love of God, that we keep His commandments” (I John 5:3). This explosive decision was on the front page of the Texarkana Gazette on Sunday, the day after the convention. Following is an excerpt from the article. This is the caption of the story.


Episcopalians won’t send funds to national church

By Sabrina McCormick

Texarkana Gazette

The Episcopal Diocese of Dallas voted Saturday to withhold half a million dollars from the Episcopal Church USA in protest of the national organization’s sanctioning of an openly gay bishop and its stance on same-sex unions.

The vote came on the final day of the 108th Annual Convention of the Dallas Diocese, which was held at Texarkana’s St. James Day School. Missioner for Communications Jim Goodson said this was the first time the Diocese of Dallas has ever voted to give zero percent of their budget to the national organization. He said traditionally the national church presents a figure needed based on their budget to support the church. The recommendation was $682,881 for 2004, based on previous years. The executive council and the financial committee opted to send 75 percent of the recommendation to the national church, which would have equaled $512,161.

However, the clergy and lay persons voted to send zero percent to the national church. The statement comes as a strong message to the Episcopal Church USA, which voted to sanction the ordination of an openly gay bishop and same sex unions in early August.

The Rt. Rev. James M. Stanton says the legislation allows for individual churches to give to the national church only if they choose to. “It gives the individual church the right to choose where their money goes,” Stanton said. Stanton said the decision does not mean they are splitting off from the ECUSA. “My task is to hold us together despite divisions,” Stanton said.

God states, “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers” (II Cor. 6:14). It is a commandment that they are to separate themselves, and consecrate themselves from such sinners.5 It is of the utmost importance that they obey God. To disobey God “is as the sin of witchcraft” (I Sam. 15:23). People who will not separate themselves from sinners are not consecrated to God, and they are not holy. Remember, “without [holiness] no man shall see the Lord” (Heb. 12:14). Jesus, who is the Word of God, is “the [only] way, the [only] truth, and the [only] life” (John 14:6). Anyone attempting to enter the Kingdom of Heaven other than by Him, “the same is a thief and a robber” (John 10:1).

Revelation chapter 21 states that Christ is coming for His bride, which is the church, His body, “arrayed in fine linen, clean and white” (Rev. 19:8) without “spot…and without blemish” (Eph. 5:27). That means there cannot be any sin in the church. Today the church is to know the Word of God so well that they can measure sinners and put them outside of the church, out into the world with the “Gentiles” (Rev. 11:2). There is no place for homosexuals or any sinners except repentant sinners in the Kingdom of Heaven.6

Receive the truth and live, saith the Lord.7 Jesus said, and I paraphrase, that anyone who hears what Jesus says and does what He says is a wise person, and anyone who hears the Word of God and will not do as He commands is a fool (Matt. 7:24-27).
