Pastor Terrence Johnson of Houston’s Higher Dimensions Church addresses homosexuality with a strong emphasis on change. In the bible, the closet is a symbol of a place of gaining spiritual power through humility and prayer.
“But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father which is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly.” – Matthew 6:6
But as is typical with the homosexual movement, biblical symbolism is hijacked and perverted. To them, the closet is a place of shame and bondage. Pastor J, as he is called, puts things in biblical perspective.
“Do you know someone who is struggling with the spirit of homosexuality? Are you in contact with individuals who feel as if they are homosexual by birth and have no choice but to live this lifestyle?
Id like to submit to you today the truth concerning these feelings that have caused much confusion in our society today.
Homosexuality is a demonic spirit. It is designed to attack one’s mind and body. Homosexuality is an arrogant spirit that convinces its victims that their condition is ok and that they should be comfortable in it.
However, Id like to bring your attention to the true agenda of this spirit. The enemy has set us up to allow us to believe that its ok for a woman to be romantically involved with a woman and for a man to be romantically involved with another man. This spirit is establishing itself in order to place an attack on the institution of the family and of a God ordained marriage between a man and a woman. The agenda is to stop the order of the Lord, the reproduction of mankind. Two individuals of the same sex can not procreate.
As Christians, it is time for us to stand together in opposition of this possession. We should not attack the individuals it affects but the possession that the enemy has on the mind. We must open our mouths and speak the truth against this spirit and not words that tear our brothers and sisters down. Speak Gods word on this situation.
The truth is God doesnt approve of homosexuality. Individuals may have been born with some biological deficiencies but the truth is we were all born in sin and shaped in iniquity.
We must be reborn. So allow the Lord to regenerate. Speak the truth in Love. You have to speak the truth.
God wants us to get to the point where we oppose the sin but love the sinner. That’s Agape love. It is to love people unconditionally. True love will confront them and give them a plan on how to get out.”
