• Interesting to note here how God set the rainbow (pseudo symbol of the "LGBT pride" movement) as His post-flood covenant
• Homosexuality eventually becomes a common sexual practice and custom in the lands of Canaan and Egypt (Lev. 18:3,30)
...(12)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: (13)I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. (14)And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: (15)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. (16)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.
(17)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. (18)And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.
(19)These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.
(20)And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: (21)And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. (22)And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. (23)And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.
(24)And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. (25)And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
(26)And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
(27)God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
(28)And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years. (29)And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: and he died...
Genesis 19:1-14; 24-29
• Homosexual practice was evidently common among old and young male age groups in Sodom (v.4)
• Lot responds to the men's homosexual desires by declaring it a wicked act (v. 7)
• Despite being blinded, their burning lust was so great that they persisted in seeking Lot's door! (v.11)
...(1)And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; (2)And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night. (3)And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.
(4)But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: (5)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.
(6)And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, (7)And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. (8)Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.
(9)And they said again, Stand back. And they said, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. (10)But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. (11)And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
(12)And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: (13)For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.
(14)And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law...
...(24)Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; (25)And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
(26)But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
(27)And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD: (28)And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.
(29)And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt...

...(1)And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, (2)Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the LORD your God.
(3)After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances. (4)Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God. (5)Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.
(6)None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD.
(7)The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. (8)The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father's nakedness. (9)The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover.
(10)The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is thine own nakedness. (11)The nakedness of thy father's wife's daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. (12)Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's sister: she is thy father's near kinswoman. (13)Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's sister: for she is thy mother's near kinswoman. (14)Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt...
...(20)Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour's wife, to defile thyself with her.
(21)And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.
(22)Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. (23)Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.
(24)Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: (25)And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
(26)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: (27)(For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) (28)That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.
(29)For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
(30)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...

...(10)And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. (11)And the man that lieth with his father's wife hath uncovered his father's nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. (12)And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood upon them.
(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.
(14)And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you. (15)And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast. (16)And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them...
...(22)Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out. (23)And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them. (24)But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey: I am the LORD your God, which have separated you from other people...

...(28)Observe and hear all these words which I command thee, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee for ever, when thou doest that which is good and right in the sight of the LORD thy God.
(29)When the LORD thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land; (30)Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou inquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. (31)Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.
(32)What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it...

(11)And it shall be, if it make thee answer of peace, and open unto thee, then it shall be, that all the people that is found therein shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve thee. (12)And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it: (13)And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword: (14)But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.
(15)Thus shalt thou do unto all the cities which are very far off from thee, which are not of the cities of these nations. (16)But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth: (17)But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee: (18)That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the LORD your God...

(17)There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel. (18)Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both these are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
(19)Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury: (20)Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it...
• The men of Gibeah were associated with the false deity, Belial (Deut. 12:31) (Deut. 20:18)
• The Levite responds to the men's homosexual desires by declaring it a wicked act, folly, and a vile thing (v. 23-24)

(15)And they turned aside thither, to go in and to lodge in Gibeah: and when he went in, he sat him down in a street of the city: for there was no man that took them into his house to lodging.
(16)And, behold, there came an old man from his work out of the field at even, which was also of mount Ephraim; and he sojourned in Gibeah: but the men of the place were Benjamites. (17)And when he had lifted up his eyes, he saw a wayfaring man in the street of the city: and the old man said, Whither goest thou? and whence comest thou? (18)And he said unto him, We are passing from Bethlehemjudah toward the side of mount Ephraim; from thence am I: and I went to Bethlehemjudah, but I am now going to the house of the LORD; and there is no man that receiveth me to house. (19)Yet there is both straw and provender for our asses; and there is bread and wine also for me, and for thy handmaid, and for the young man which is with thy servants: there is no want of any thing.
(20)And the old man said, Peace be with thee; howsoever let all thy wants lie upon me; only lodge not in the street. (21)So he brought him into his house, and gave provender unto the asses: and they washed their feet, and did eat and drink.
(22)Now as they were making their hearts merry, behold, the men of the city, certain sons of Belial, beset the house round about, and beat at the door, and spake to the master of the house, the old man, saying, Bring forth the man that came into thine house, that we may know him.
(23)And the man, the master of the house, went out unto them, and said unto them, Nay, my brethren, nay, I pray you, do not so wickedly; seeing that this man is come into mine house, do not this folly. (24)Behold, here is my daughter a maiden, and his concubine; them I will bring out now, and humble ye them, and do with them what seemeth good unto you: but unto this man do not so vile a thing.
(25)But the men would not hearken to him: so the man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to spring, they let her go.
(26)Then came the woman in the dawning of the day, and fell down at the door of the man's house where her lord was, till it was light...
I Kings 14:21-31
• Upon closer reading, nationwide sexual wickedness surfaced (v. 24) right after widespread idolatry (v. 23) became established in Judah
• Curiously, in the next verse (v. 25), Judah was invaded by a foreign nation soon after
...(21)And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the LORD did choose out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother's name was Naamah an Ammonitess. (22)And Judah did evil in the sight of the LORD, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they had committed, above all that their fathers had done. (23)For they also built them high places, and images, and groves, on every high hill, and under every green tree.
(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.
(25)And it came to pass in the fifth year of king Rehoboam, that Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem: (26)And he took away the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house; he even took away all: and he took away all the shields of gold which Solomon had made. (27)And king Rehoboam made in their stead brasen shields, and committed them unto the hands of the chief of the guard, which kept the door of the king's house. (28)And it was so, when the king went into the house of the LORD, that the guard bare them, and brought them back into the guard chamber.
(29)Now the rest of the acts of Rehoboam, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
(30)And there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all their days.
(31)And Rehoboam slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David. And his mother's name was Naamah an Ammonitess. And Abijam his son reigned in his stead...

(9)And in the twentieth year of Jeroboam king of Israel reigned Asa over Judah. (10)And forty and one years reigned he in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom.
(11)And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father.
(12)And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made. (13)And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron. (14)But the high places were not removed: nevertheless Asa's heart was perfect with the LORD all his days. (15)And he brought in the things which his father had dedicated, and the things which himself had dedicated, into the house of the LORD, silver, and gold, and vessels.

(43)And he walked in all the ways of Asa his father; he turned not aside from it, doing that which was right in the eyes of the LORD: nevertheless the high places were not taken away; for the people offered and burnt incense yet in the high places.
(44)And Jehoshaphat made peace with the king of Israel.
(45)Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, and his might that he shewed, and how he warred, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
(46)And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.
(47)There was then no king in Edom: a deputy was king. (48)Jehoshaphat made ships of Tharshish to go to Ophir for gold: but they went not; for the ships were broken at Eziongeber. (49)Then said Ahaziah the son of Ahab unto Jehoshaphat, Let my servants go with thy servants in the ships. But Jehoshaphat would not.
(50)And Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father: and Jehoram his son reigned in his stead...

(3)And the king stood by a pillar, and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes with all their heart and all their soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people stood to the covenant.
(4)And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of the LORD all the vessels that were made for Baal, and for the grove, and for all the host of heaven: and he burned them without Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried the ashes of them unto Bethel. (5)And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burned incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.
(6)And he brought out the grove from the house of the LORD, without Jerusalem, unto the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and stamped It small to powder, and cast the powder thereof upon the graves of the children of the people.
(7)And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.

(3)For in the eighth year of his reign, while he was yet young, he began to seek after the God of David his father: and in the twelfth year he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem from the high places, and the groves, and the carved images, and the molten images. (4)And they brake down the altars of Baalim in his presence; and the images, that were on high above them, he cut down; and the groves, and the carved images, and the molten images, he brake in pieces, and made dust of them, and strowed it upon the graves of them that had sacrificed unto them.
(5)And he burnt the bones of the priests upon their altars, and cleansed Judah and Jerusalem.

(10)And when the year was expired, king Nebuchadnezzar sent, and brought him to Babylon, with the goodly vessels of the house of the LORD, and made Zedekiah his brother king over Judah and Jerusalem.
(11)Zedekiah was one and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. (12)And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD his God, and humbled not himself before Jeremiah the prophet speaking from the mouth of the LORD. (13)And he also rebelled against king Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him swear by God: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart from turning unto the LORD God of Israel. (14)Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed very much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of the LORD which he had hallowed in Jerusalem.
(15)And the LORD God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place: (16)But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy...

(2)For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, and for their sons: so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands: yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass.
(3)And when I heard this thing, I rent my garment and my mantle, and plucked off the hair of my head and of my beard, and sat down astonied. (4)Then were assembled unto me every one that trembled at the words of the God of Israel, because of the transgression of those that had been carried away; and I sat astonied until the evening sacrifice.

• Sodom's reason for destruction affirmed, in declaring they "committed abomination" (homosexuality, etc.) before the LORD (v. 50)
...(1)Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, (2)Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations, (3)And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite. (4)And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all. (5)None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born...
...(44)Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter. (45)Thou art thy mother's daughter, that lotheth her husband and her children; and thou art the sister of thy sisters, which lothed their husbands and their children: your mother was an Hittite, and your father an Amorite. (46)And thine elder sister is Samaria, she and her daughters that dwell at thy left hand: and thy younger sister, that dwelleth at thy right hand, is Sodom and her daughters. (47)Yet hast thou not walked after their ways, nor done after their abominations: but, as if that were a very little thing, thou wast corrupted more than they in all thy ways. (48)As I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters.
(49)Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. (50)And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good. (51)Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins; but thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters in all thine abominations which thou hast done. (52)Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters...
• Similar to I Kings 14:23, God eventually gives hardened idolaters over to the lusts of their own hearts (v. 23-25)
• God does so even to the point where He rejects them, and renders them reprobate (corrupt) (v. 28)
• Homosexual practice is strongly declared to be a vile affection, and a burning lust (v. 26-27)
...(16)For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. (17)For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
(18)For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; (19)Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
(20)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: (21)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. (22)Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, (23)And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
(24)Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: (25)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.
(26)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: (27)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.
(28)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; (29)Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, (30)Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, (31)Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
(32)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...

• Scripture soberly warns that indulging in immorality will have eternal consequences (v. 9, 10)
• Homosexual practitioners, etc. CAN BE REDEEMED and SANCTIFIED through Christ (v. 11)
...(3)Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? (4)If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. (5)I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? (6)But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers. (7)Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded? (8)Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.
(9)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, (10)Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
(11)And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
(12)All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. (13)Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. (14)And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power. (15)Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. (16)What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. (17)But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
(18)Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. (19)What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
(20)For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's...
I Timothy 1:3-14
• Compare v. 10 with Deuteronomy 23:17-18 (whores and sodomites)
...(3)As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine, (4)Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. (5)Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: (6)From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; (7)Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
(8)But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; (9)Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, (10)For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; (11)According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
(12)And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; (13)Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
(14)And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus...
• Sodom's reason for condemnation and destruction again confirmed and highlighted (v.7)
...(3)Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. (4)For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
(5)I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. (6)And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. (7)Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. (8)Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. (9)Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. (10)But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. (11)Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. (12)These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; (13)Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
(14)And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, (15)To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. (16)These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage...

• Eternal, fiery condemnation is pronounced upon all abominable practice (v.8,27)
...(1)And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. (2)And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (3)And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
(4)And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
(5)And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. (6)And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
(7)He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

(9)And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. (10)And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, (11)Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; (12)And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: (13)On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. (14)And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb...
...(22)And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. (23)And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb the light thereof. (24)And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. (25)And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. (26)And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
(27)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...

Justin Martyr “First Apology” (150-160 A.D.) Chapter 25: False gods Abandoned by Christians
And, secondly, because we--who, out of every race of men, used to worship Bacchus the son of Semele, and Apollo the son of Latona (who in their loves with men did such things as it is shameful even to mention), and Proserpine and Venus (who were maddened with love of Adonis, and whose mysteries also you celebrate), or AEsculapius, or some one or other of those who are called gods--have now, through Jesus Christ, learned to despise these, though we be threatened with death for it, and have dedicated ourselves to the unbegotten and impossible God; of whom we are persuaded that never was he goaded by lust of Antiope, or such other women, or of Ganymede, nor was rescued by that hundred-handed giant whose aid was obtained through Thetis, nor was anxious on this account that her son Achilles should destroy many of the Greeks because of his concubine Briseis. Those who believe these things we pity, and those who invented them we know to be devils.
Flavius Josephus "Antiquities of the Jews " (93 A.D.) Book 1: From the Creation to the Death of Isaac (3,833 years): Chapter 11
1. ABOUT this time the Sodomites grew proud, on account of their riches and great wealth; they became unjust towards men, and impious towards God, insomuch that they did not call to mind the advantages they received from him: they hated strangers, and abused themselves with Sodomitical practices. God was therefore much displeased at them, and determined to punish them for their pride, and to overthrow their city, and to lay waste their country, until there should neither plant nor fruit grow out of it.
2. When God had thus resolved concerning the Sodomites, Abraham, as he sat by the oak of Mambre, at the door of his tent, saw three angels; and thinking them to be strangers, he rose up, and saluted them, and desired they would accept of an entertainment, and abide with him; to which, when they agreed, he ordered cakes of meal to be made presently; and when he had slain a calf, he roasted it, and brought it to them, as they sat under the oak. Now they made a show of eating; and besides, they asked him about his wife Sarah, where she was; and when he said she was within, they said they would come again hereafter, and find her become a mother. Upon which the woman laughed, and said that it was impossible she should bear children, since she was ninety years of age, and her husband was a hundred. Then they concealed themselves no longer, but declared that they were angels of God; and that one of them was sent to inform them about the child, and two of the overthrow of Sodom.
3. When Abraham heard this, he was grieved for the Sodomites; and he rose up, and besought God for them, and entreated him that he would not destroy the righteous with the wicked. And when God had replied that there was no good man among the Sodomites; for if there were but ten such man among them, he would not punish any of them for their sins, Abraham held his peace. And the angels came to the city of the Sodomites, and Lot entreated them to accept of a lodging with him; for he was a very generous and hospitable man, and one that had learned to imitate the goodness of Abraham. Now when the Sodomites saw the young men to be of beautiful countenances, and this to an extraordinary degree, and that they took up their lodgings with Lot, they resolved themselves to enjoy these beautiful boys by force and violence; and when Lot exhorted them to sobriety, and not to offer any thing immodest to the strangers, but to have regard to their lodging in his house; and promised that if their inclinations could not be governed, he would expose his daughters to their lust, instead of these strangers; neither thus were they made ashamed.
4. But God was much displeased at their impudent behavior, so that he both smote those men with blindness, and condemned the Sodomites to universal destruction. But Lot, upon God's informing him of the future destruction of the Sodomites, went away, taking with him his wife and daughters, who were two, and still virgins; for those that were betrothed to them were above the thoughts of going, and deemed that Lot's words were trifling. God then cast a thunderbolt upon the city, and set it on fire, with its inhabitants; and laid waste the country with the like burning, as I formerly said when I wrote the Jewish War. But Lot's wife continually turning back to view the city as she went from it, and being too nicely inquisitive what would become of it, although God had forbidden her so to do, was changed into a pillar of salt; for I have seen it, and it remains at this day. Now he and his daughters fled to a certain small place, encompassed with the fire, and settled in it: it is to this day called Zoar, for that is the word which the Hebrews use for a small thing. There it was that he lived a miserable life, on account of his having no company, and his want of provisions...
Flavius Josephus "Antiquities of the Jews " (93 A.D.) Book 3: From The Exodus Out Of Egypt, To The Rejection Of That Generation (2 years): Chapter 12
1. AS for adultery, Moses forbade it entirely, as esteeming it a happy thing that men should be wise in the affairs of wedlock; and that it was profitable both to cities and families that children should be known to be genuine. He also abhorred men's lying with their mothers, as one of the greatest crimes; and the like for lying with the father's wife, and with aunts, and sisters, and sons' wives, as all instances of abominable wickedness. He also forbade a man to lie with his wife when she was defiled by her natural purgation: and not to come near brute beasts; nor to approve of the lying with a male, which was to hunt after unlawful pleasures on account of beauty. To those who were guilty of such insolent behavior, he ordained death for their punishment.
2. As for the priests, he prescribed to them a double degree of purity for he restrained them in the instances above, and moreover forbade them to marry harlots. He also forbade them to marry a slave, or a captive, and such as got their living by cheating trades, and by keeping inns; as also a woman parted from her husband, on any account whatsoever. Nay, he did not think it proper for the high priest to marry even the widow of one that was dead, though he allowed that to the priests; but he permitted him only to marry a virgin, and to retain her. Whence it is that the high priest is not to come near to one that is dead, although the rest are not prohibited from coming near to their brethren, or parents, or children, when they are dead; but they are to be unblemished in all respects. He ordered that the priest who had any blemish, should have his portion indeed among the priests, but he forbade him to ascend the altar, or to enter into the holy house. He also enjoined them, not only to observe purity in their sacred ministrations, but in their daily conversation, that it might be unblamable also. And on this account it is that those who wear the sacerdotal garments are without spot, and eminent for their purity and sobriety: nor are they permitted to drink wine so long as they wear those garments. Moreover, they offer sacrifices that are entire, and have no defect whatsoever...

Chapter 12 Queen of Black Witches
...I had witnessed evil and ugly orgies in the Satanist's temple, but I was to see far worse in the witches' coven.
I always obeyed my master, the chief Satanist, and naturally I became a witch. At my initiation goat's blood was smeared all over my naked body. Things followed that were too evil to be brought to mind.
All meetings included awful scenes of perverted sexual acts, as sex plays an important part in witchcraft. Many black witches were lesbians or homosexuals.
Sadism was practiced frequently. Some even cut themselves with knives and felt no pain. Some swallowed poison, and no ill effects were experienced at all.
Imagine over one hundred black witches all taking part in such perversions at the same time. And this still goes on today...
Chapter 17 Jesus is Victor (p.131-132)
...As they revealed themselves--their names, their works, their times of possession--so they were cast out, never without a long, hard struggle, all hating Mr. Neil, all hating Gehenna. They knew that if they were cast out to Gehenna, it would be the end of them.
"Not before the time," they would plead.
But Mr. Neil insisted they all go to Gehenna, where they would never again torment man or beast.
Many of the demons quoted Scripture, many argued over Bible truths, and some spoke in other tongues. In the conflict they disclosed that some had possessed my body fifteen years, a few even longer.
"I'm not leaving her body," said one unclean spirit. "I've been here for years. I'm not leaving now."
Solicit was still another unclean spirit. Mr. Neil explained that this demon had entered the body at the age of fourteen, when I became a prostitute on the Paddington Streets. It even tried to solicit the ministers present at the exorcism.
After many verbal exchanges it eventually left with loud screams to Gehenna, along with Dark Enticer. Very smart this one, with a smart-sounding name, and works to match. It put up a very powerful display -- showing off, trying to attract and allure the ministers. But it also was cast out in the more powerful name of Jesus.
...Other unclean spirits, like Seducer, Stripper, Corruption, and Lesbian, were cast out to Gehenna. The Lesbian demon was most revealing, Mr. Neil told me, and quite startling in its dialogue. It spoke in a refined society voice (so unlike my own).
In the course of exorcism Mr. Neil mentioned Mary Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils. The demon immediately took it up, saying, "Don't speak to me about Mary Magdalene. Traitor! Traitor! Don't speak to me about her!"
Mr. Neil also mentioned Calvary, where Satan and all demons were conquered by Christ.
"Don't speak to me about Calvary. I was there, I was there. I saw it all. I was there years and years ago, long before I entered this body. I was there. Don't speak to me about Calvary," said this demon.
In spite of all protests it had to go to Gehenna before the time.
"Jesus is Victor!" said Mr. Neil over and over again. "Jesus is Victor!"...

Chapter 8 The Sins of Sodom
...Whip cracking isn't the only evidence of homosexual S&M domination being crammed down young people's throats via their ears. If you've ever heard a hardcore Rock & Roll song on the radio, TV, or stereo, you may have noticed how often the singer SCREAMS between verses and choruses. Have you every wondered WHY all that screaming is necessary?
Over the years many musical acts have half-heartedly explained away the phenomenon of Rock screaming as being a release of pent up sexual frustration, or perhaps a triumphant jungle yell left over from our primeval ancestors, unlocked by Rock's liberating forces. In the course of my own research, I have found a shocking answer that makes much more sense.
While interviewing members of the Gay community about this subject, I was told that the frequent screams punctuating most Rock tunes ALL come from the homosexual penetration of the male. This seems to be a matter of common knowledge among informed Gays, and an object of no little humor...
...If that's the case, then who influenced THE BEATLES to scream like banshees? Did they simply introduce such behavior out of nowhere? Of course not. All artists are influenced by their predecessors, and the Beatles were no exception. On their first few LP's, they covered many songs written by Richard Penniman, (also known as "Little Richard."). HE was the first the Fifties Rock & Rollers to scream, scream, scream. He was also a flaming homosexual.
Little Richard was well known as the most flamboyant Rocker of his era. With his penciled eyebrows, exquisitely coiffed hairdo, lipstick, silks, satins, and heavy jewelry, he astounded audiences everywhere, and got rich doing it. At one time, guitar superstar Jimi Hendrix got his start in Little Richard's backing band.
Little Richard was best recognized in performance as pounding on a grand piano while he shouted his way through dirty songs like "Good Golly Miss Molly", "Rip it Up," and "Long Tall Sally," screaming till his voice gave out. Paul McCartney learned to ape Little Richard's style perfectly.
Little Richard turned his back on Rock & Roll in 1957, and became a preacher. He also made several Gospel records. Ashamed of his homosexual past, he was quoted as saying, "You can't drink from God's cup and the Devil's cup at the same time," (A paraphrase of I Corinthians 10:21).
THIS is where all the screaming in Rock got its start: from a homosexual. The Beatles, the world's biggest Rock act, stole it, and turned it into a phenomenon copied by every Rock band since 1964...

Chapter 10: Doorways
Doorways Through Sex
I discussed in Chapter 9 the scriptural reasons for sexual sins opening doorways to demons. Any participation in sexual perversions directly opens a person up to the inflow of demons. Scripture is plain, the following things are sin: sex with the same sex, sex with animals, sex with anyone other than your spouse, sex with demons. Any sexual contact other than a marital partner, will almost always result in demonic infestation.
This is why God has given His people so many commands about sexual purity. It is for our protection from this source of demonic infestation. Rape and violent sexual assault, particularly in children, is a doorway that I have come across repeatedly in my medical practice. This results in the entrance of some of the strongest demons that I have ever met. Particularly powerful demons are those involved in sado-masochism. Incest within a family always leads to demonic infestation.
Use of pornography also opens the door to demons...

Homosexuality and Confusion
Homosexuality is a very powerful, evil spirit today. It is a total abomination to God and represents confusion of mind. Confusion is a Babylonian trait. In Jeremiah 50:2 the Lord says, "Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded." To be confounded is to be confused. Of all the books of the Bible, the book of Jeremiah uses the word "confounded" more than any other. The people of Babylon were confounded or confused, and the same is true today. Later in history, Bel became known as the god Janus, the two-headed god whose symbol is a club which he uses to bash the heads of men. Being two-headed is being double-minded and, therefore, unstable (James 1:8).
Today, homosexuality has reared its ugly head more than at any time in history, except perhaps in the days of decadent Rome. There is no way to compare the two eras because there are no statistics, but homosexuality in America and elsewhere in the world is more blatant and widespread than in the previous thousand years. Despite what the media or homosexual advocacy groups would have us believe, homosexuality is clearly a sin in God's eyes.
Confusion is increasing today. In the last five years, I have received more cases of schizophrenia, manic depression, and mental/emotional problems than ever before.

YOUNG MAN DELIVERED OF HOMOSEXUALITY
In the dramatic account that follows, a pastor in Florida describes his experience in dealing with a young homosexual:
“Pastor,” the young man in my office wept, “somebody’s got to help me! I can’t go on any longer.” He bent forward in the large platform chair. “Two years ago I was born again. I really love the Lord, but I still have a powerful lust for other men.”
We waited until he regained his composure.
“Before I was saved, I was a homosexual. Since then I haven’t committed that sin— but the desire is still in me, and I’m afraid I can’t keep it under control much longer. I went to my pastor for deliverance, but he says it’s impossible for a Christian to have a demon of homosexuality, and that I’ll just have to exercise discipline.”
He looked at me with distress gripping his face. “But discipline isn’t the answer! I know there’s a perverse spirit in my body. It is there! Deliverance is the only hope I have. Can you help me?” He began weeping again.
I waited until he had regained his composure. Then I explained, “I wish it were true that Christians were immune to demonic invasion. Unfortunately, our corruptible has not yet ‘put on incorruption,’ and our mortal has not yet ‘put on immortality,’ as it says in 1 Corinthians 15: 54. Until that happens, our minds and bodies will still be vulnerable to the enemy. A demon can go anywhere that sin and disease can go. If a Christian can have either of these, he’s also subject to having a demon.”
He listened intently.
“Receiving ministry today obligates you to a series of follow-up appointments in the future. This is not a one-time session. Jesus warned that when the unclean spirit leaves a person, it goes through dry places seeking rest and finds none. Ultimately it will return to the same person and try to gain reentry. If it succeeds, that person’s final condition will be worse than before. You absolutely must guard against that happening . To prevent it, you have to maintain a life of devotion to God, fellowship with other Spirit-filled believers, and sincerely read your Bible. Doing that will strengthen your relationship with the Lord.”
“I want you to lean back in the chair and listen carefully to what I say,” I went on. “If you comply with God’s terms, you will be set free. The Scripture promises that whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be delivered. That promise cannot fail. God will fulfill His covenant word to you. Just be certain you’re in perfect submission to Him.”
Then I led the young man in a proclamation renouncing every occult, unclean activity in which he had ever been involved. Then he verbally forgave everyone who had ever harmed him, including the men who had abused him sexually in childhood.
“Forgiving them does not mean you agree with what they did,” I explained. “It simply means that through forgiveness you cut the ropes that keep you tied to the injury they brought into your life.
“It’s important that you understand I will be speaking directly to the spirit,” I continued, “and not to you . You must listen carefully, but stay out of the way. Don’t allow the demon’s threats to intimidate you, and don’t protect it.”
He leaned back, eyes closed, as we began.
In a quiet but authoritative voice, I started quoting Scriptures to the spirit. I chose verses reminding it of Satan’s failure and Jesus’ victory. For example: “Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, [Jesus] Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage” (Hebrews 2:14–15).
I reminded the spirit that it was as powerless to hinder the success of this ministry as it had been to stop the resurrection of the Lord Jesus.
“And these signs will follow those who believe,” I told the demon, quoting Mark 16:17, “for Jesus said, ‘In My name they will cast out demons.’ ” And again, “‘I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you’ ” (Luke 10:19).
For about twenty minutes I continued quoting Scripture.
“The weapons of our warfare are not carnal ,” I went on, quoting 2 Corinthians 10: 4–5, “but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God…”
Several times the young man smiled at me with a seductive, sexy grin. Recognizing that this was merely a manifestation of the spirit, I continued. Suddenly, when I quoted Romans 16: 20, “The God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly,” something amazing happened. The young man twisted sideways in the chair, grabbed the arm with both hands and went into a violent, epileptic-like seizure. His body lurched forward in a furious, hammering fashion, vibrating sideways at the same time. I held him around the waist, giving him as much support as I could. It was ugly. Yes, demons are ugly.
The sound coming out of him was equally astonishing. A bellowing noise, like that of a wounded bull, roared from his body. The events of Philip’s preachin g in Samaria immediately came to mind: “Unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed” (Acts 8:7); and Jesus’ delivering the afflicted child when “the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and came out of him” (Mark 9:26).
The seizure lasted several minutes as I continued to rebuke the spirit, commanding it to be quiet and to go. Then, as suddenly as the seizure had begun, the young man collapsed back in the chair, physically and emotionally spent. The room became quiet. The spirit was gone.
Slowly, reverently, as in worship, the youth raised both arms over his head, weeping and laughing, “It’s gone! It’s gone! I felt it go. Praise God, I’m free! It’s gone!”
A moment later he rose from the chair, spending the next half hour walking through the offices, singing, laughing, shouting. “Thank You, Jesus! It’s gone! It’s gone! Thank You, Jesus!”
In that brief period of time, the tormented lifestyle of homosexuality ended. Only its memory would remain.
I had particular reason to rejoice with this young man. For nearly thirty years of traditional ministry, I had been unable to help people with such crushing problems. I had stood by helplessly and watched as church members were torn apart by situations that deliverance ministry could easily have solved. Some of them even died. That failure, common to most of us pastors, radically changed when I received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and learned about deliverance ministry. Thankfully this young man did not become another of my casualties. The truth had set him free.

Power Against Spiritual Marriages
Sexual perversion - Sexual perversion constitutes a very strong entry point for wicked spirit husbands and wives. Any sexual relationship that violates the word of God leads to an evil spiritual marriage. Fornication, adultery, incest, masturbation, lesbianism, homosexuality, bestiality, pornography and prostitution are avenues for getting into marriage with spirit husbands and wives.
This generation has seen the worst sexual perversion. If you read the daily, the paper's increasing number of bizarre incidents of sexual perversion will shock you.
Some African ladies have become so demonic that they travel to far away Europe where they allow dogs and other animals sleep with them for a fee. Those who are involved in such horrific abominations will obviously get married to terrible wicked spirit husbands.
Ladies who give away their womanhood to demonic dogs would receive marriage invitations from multiple wicked spirits. If a man eventually sleeps with such ladies, he will be in trouble. The spirits that came into such a woman through sexual perversion (bestiality) will invade the life of the man.
Sexual perversion includes sexual flashbacks, flirting, seduction, petting, kissing, inordinate affection, oral sex and looking lustfully at women. These practices open the door for spirit husbands and wives to come in...

Sexual looseness and perversion. Sexual demons are very powerful. They can enter through the eye, through the ear, through participation and through transfer. They also transfer into people's lives through inheritance. Other entry points include masturbation, pornography, watching films which feature naked men, homosexuality, lesbianism, oral sex, bestiality, incest, rape, occult sex, fornication, adultery, prostitution, filthy thoughts and conversation, sexual flashbacks (committing sin with somebody in your mind), promiscuity, flirting, the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and inordinate affection...

Ch 10 The Sacred Altar
A Blueprint for Depravity
In so many cases of friends of mine from the Craft, I watched this current do its awful work I have already mentioned the descent into blood rites, but additionally sexual perversity of the vilest sort enthralled many of them. I was not immune either.
Like a beetle which eats invisibly away at a piece of wood, the demonic powers unleashed by Wiccan initiations gnawed silently at whatever decency and sanity we possessed. Many of us became involved in sado-masochism and bondage and discipline. Hard-core pornography, promiscuity and adultery were taken for granted.
Sodomy is especially “sacred” to Set because of its close association to human waste, and its mimicry of certain canine practices. This detestable practice serves a similar function in the anus as does the magical sex act of intercourse described above. It opens what are called the “Typhonion” tunnels, channels through which extremely powerful demons, like the horrible Choronzon, can travel from their “alternate reality” and emerge into this universe and enter the sex partner’s body.
This is what is called Qliphotic magic, representing the blackest side of Qabalism and the Tree of Life. The Qliphot (derived from the Hebrew for “harlot” or “shell”) is the “backside” of the qabalistic Tree of Life. The “backside” metaphor carries through, for the best way to open these tunnels of demonic ingress is through homosexual sex, in which approximate contact and stimulation is achieved with the prostate gland of the other.
As study of occult anatomical principles reveals that it is believed that a circuit of powerful energy runs from the anus to the roof of the mouth and tongue, down through the trunk and into the generative organs. Thus, it can be seen that most homosexual practices reinforce these demonic links. This does much to explain both the increasingly perverse and even dangerous practices of most homosexuals, and of most people who practice higher levels of Witchcraft.
This also explains the sudden meteoric rise of interest in the child as a sexual object, and the terrible seductiveness of child pornography. We often ask ourselves, “How could a person be sexually attracted to a small child?” It does not seem sane or normal, and of course it is not. Yet, throughout his life, Crowley attempted to invoke the Crowned and Conquering Child...

Part II. Chapter 9: Jesus Cleans His Church
HIGHWAY TO FREEDOM
...In Africa, when a person gets saved, we take them away for deliverance. We immediately work to destroy their past. We labor to deliver them from the devils that have guided their lives for years.
It has been my experience that once demons gain entrance to a human body, they are able to establish various strongholds. They are invited into a person but they must be kicked out. To illustrate, a demonic stronghold could be called a spirit of infirmity. This could cause such a victim to be constantly sick and eventually become terminally or drastically ill with many ailments. Another stronghold could cause spirits such as, unforgiveness, rebellion, fear, (these names usually correspond to their functions of jobs) to operate in the same person. The chain of command controls all strongholds and demons can act inside a person's body. These are called ruling spirits. The minister must bind the strongman.
If the minister should fail to do so, then the demons that are being cast out will draw strength and reinforcement from the strongman that resides in the person. However, all the strongholds ultimately take their orders from the strongman (Principalities) in the heavens. A deliverance minister must destroy the stronghold (Principalities) by binding (tying up or not permitting) the power of the strongman. The minister must cut and cast off all cords between the strongman and the spirits that reside inside the person. Then the minister should continue the deliverance. If the minster fails to cut these cords that connect ruling spirits in the heavens, then the spirit that is being cast out will draw strength and reinforcement from the strongman. They are residing as clusters or nests of spirits that are connected to the stronghold (Principalities). These demons dwell flocked together, such as anger, murder, violence, hostility, unforgiveness, perversion, homosexuality and other demons inside people.

CHAPTER 3 RISING IN SPIRITUAL STRENGTH
THIRD POINT OF CONTROL
Earthmen, the genital is controlled when one refrains completely from illicit sex, such as fornication and adultery, in thoughts, words and deeds. Whether it is masturbation, incest, oral sex, lesbianism, homosexuality and such like, all are within the framework of illicit sex.
Apart from some exceptional extraordinary cases, as the Lord told me, like Abraham, David, Samson, etc., this is the last and greatest channel that leaks the Spirit of God in the consciousness of man to the total spiritual emptiness of many. The Lord God spoke to me again and said:
“Harbinger, I choose the heart of the faithful who loves Me to dwell in; behold, even the heart that is pure and devoid of lust, I choose as My holy temple. Now when one who claims to love Me commits fornication or adultery, how can My Spirit dwell in him if he be not exempted?
“Therefore let the faithful who has refrained from this hold fast to My path and embrace it no more. It is very pathetic, O son of man, when I see the children of men, even My messengers on Earth, defile themselves with that which profits nothing.”

Chapter Eleven: LOST SOULS IN HELL
In 2008 I was instantly translated to a part of hell where I could see a sea of men and women in their blackened skeleton forms lined in queues. No matter how much I tried, I could not see where the queue ended. Instead I could see lost souls added constantly to the queue. Deafening screams of terror and nauseating stench of burning flesh filled the choking air. This was a never-ending human chain, and it appeared that each soul was lost in his or her torment and oblivious of the presence of others.
Jesus told me that these were the souls of sexually immoral and were ready to be cast into the lake of fire (Rev. 21:8)...
...The means by which these demons inflicted the torment was first by spears. These were no ordinary spears for they radiated fire and soon enveloped the victim in its flames. The torment did not stop there, but these souls continued to be inflicted in the particular area of sin, with sharp pins in the case of men and for women giant snakes with spikes penetrated them. I saw the lost souls of men and women cry out in terrible pain when inflicted by them. Those pathetic cries of the lost souls were endless, as were their torments.
I saw many young men and women there and many more added to this never-ending human chain. Many of these lost souls were tormented by demons that changed into men while inflicting gruesome torments to men, or women while tormenting women. With sadness Jesus explained that these were homosexuals while alive and died in this sin.
I saw the soul of a man, a sexual pervert, being tormented by a demon that kept changing into a girl and then a boy. I could not understand why this was so. Jesus explained to me that this man had committed incest with his daughter and sodomized his son; hence the transformation of the demon to a boy and girl reflected the man's sins. The demon's transformation occurred while inflicting the horrible continual torment to the man with the spear first and then followed by sharp pins, as this lost soul cried out in agonizing pain. This cry was continual, just as the cycle of torment...
...Are you leading a double life today -- holy on the outside yet sexually immoral on the inside? I saw many such souls in hell. Repent today if you are involved in adultery, bestiality, fornication, homosexuality, one-night stands, pornography, incest, prostitution, or sexual perversion of any kind. Maybe the immorality you are involved in is not mentioned here; nevertheless, please repent...

Ch 11 CULTURAL CONSEQUENCES, SOCIAL BREAKDOWN AND SPIRITUAL OPEN DOORS
...Internet pornography is now an integral part of young people’s reality, especially for boys and young men, but increasingly, girls and women are also becoming addicted to pornography.
If you want to know how an entire country bowed to normalizing homosexuality and approving gay marriage, then do the math: From the time the gates to internet pornography opened – around 1989 – until the widespread acceptance of gay marriage – 2014 – is about 25 years. An entire generation was exposed to and indulging in no-restraints pornography. And it is a fact that the vast majority of boys who have viewed pornography have also crossed the line into homosexual pornography. It did not, for the most part, alter their sexual “preferences” – but it most certainly altered their sexual perceptions about what is right and wrong. 1 + 1 = 2. Acceptance of homosexuality didn’t happen in a vacuum. It happened in a demonic workshop and a spiritual sewer. I know that is harsh, but that is spiritual reality.
You cannot in fact understand how homosexuality became the issue of the day and how a tiny group of people known as gay activists became so powerful that they are making politicians tremble for fear of them and churches ready to appease them unless you understand that behind all of it is a powerful principality that is determined that we will bow the knee or be destroyed. The force driving this issue is supernatural. We need to be prepared to battle this principality in prayer. Unrestrained sexuality is the name of Satan’s game, because it completely mars, destroys and ruins the precious singular gift of naked oneness God gave to be an lifetime gift to be shared with one person...
Dream Warfare Journal: 2015 Entries
October 5, 2015 (around 6 a.m.)
As I recall, I was with whom I believed to be my grandfather, whom had taken us out to this cave far past the outskirts of town (we had to travel quite far on motorbikes, through rocky wilderness terrain).
We then reached the entrance to this large cave with a pitch-black entrance, where club music could be audibly heard strumming from within. Once at this point, I recall the person claiming to be my grandfather trying to convince me to enter in and learn about the gay lifestyle.
He was trying to persuade me that I was somehow "spiritually tainted" and that I had to enter inside, to experience things for myself. I strongly objected, countering that the Blood of Jesus was enough to cover me against all such things. From here, he persisted further, as I could progressively hear the club music get louder.
(my room was silent in the physical)
I recall then strongly objecting with the name of Jesus, with the following exchange verbatim, below:
"I'm NOT going in there!", I told my "grandpa".

Hahahahahahahahahahaha... <--- I heard higher pitched, imp-like laughter ringing in my ears as I woke up.
Homosexuals in Hell
Mary K. Baxter received a vision of Hell from God, in which she witnessed unrepentant lost souls, in skeleton form, chained together and tormented in a river
of blood and fire.
Above them, Mary testifies to seeing verses from the book of Romans materializing in the air, testifying against their sin.
