Homosexuality As Sin

by John and Ruth Greene

homosexual-loveYou’ve probably heard about it in the media. Undeniably, the internet and much of the media is ablaze with the debate. Being ‘gay’ and ‘Christian’ is all the rage. The ‘church’ is usually reported as saying that homosexuality is a grave sin, or some pastor says it is. It’s as if the act of homosexuality is one of the worst sins that you commit or practice. Many say it is. Those that say so may have something else to prove. Regardless, by many, homosexuality is graded to be worse than other sins. Who came up with grading sin? Man did. (2 Peter 1:3.-4) There is no need for debate at all – except by those that desire to highjack mainstream opinion – for scripture is the rock of disciples of Messiah. That’s the end of the matter. Now here is the truth about sexual sin (and other sins) that separates from Elohim. [‘God’, YHWH] (Ephesians 5:3-5; Galatians 5:19-21; 1 John 5:3-4; “The Unpardonable Sin“; “The Abomination That Causes Desolation“; “Homosexuality: Sin & Personal Identity Crisis“)

“Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the reign of Elohim? Do not be deceived. Neither those who whore, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor greedy of gain, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers shall inherit the reign of Elohim. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were set apart, but you were declared right in the Name of the Master Yahshua and by the Spirit of our Elohim.” – 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, ISR98

“But whoring and all uncleanness, or greed of gain, let it not even be named among you, as is proper among set-apart ones – neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather thanksgiving. For this you know, that no one who whores, nor unclean one, nor one greedy of gain, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the reign of Messiah and Elohim. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these the wrath of Elohim comes upon the sons of disobedience.” – Ephesians 5:3-6, ISR98

“The one who overcomes shall inherit all this, and I shall be his Elohim and he shall be My son. But as for the cowardly, and untrustworthy, and abominable, and murderers, and those who whore, and drug sorcerers, and idolaters, and all the false, their part is in the lake which burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death.” – Revelation 21:7-8, ISR98

(Matthew 7:21-23; John 3:5; Romans 1:26-27; Hebrews 13:4; 1 Timothy 1:9-10; 1 Thessalonians 2:12; 2 Peter 3:16)

prison-porneiaTo ‘whore’ or to commit fornication translates directly to the Greek word ‘porneia,’ which is any sex outside of the marriage covenant with Elohim. The government has nothing to do with your dedicated covenant before the Father, even when they believe they do. The scriptural prohibition of sex outside of marriage is blindingly simple and applies to all Christians that are loyally dedicated to the Father. (1 Corinthians 7:23; 1 Peter 1:18-19; Colossians 3:5-7; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5; “Conduct of Disciples in the Sexual Realm“; “Romantic Attachments: Sin & Righteousness“; “Defining Love“)

The fact is that Christians do need to be very careful about being unloving. Why? First, because being unloving can be so easy to fall into. Some that profess homosexuality and other sexual sin may still be brought into the Father’s Will – and into His Kingdom. But this must be done honestly, without games – on all sides. (“The Struggle for Purity of Heart“; “Spiritual Disease that Eats at Your Salvation“)

“And walk in love, as Messiah also has loved us, and gave Himself for us, a gift and an offering to Elohim for a sweet-smelling fragrance. Or do you not know that your body is the Dwelling Place of the Set-apart Spirit who is in you, which you have from Elohim, and you are not your own? For you were bought with a price, therefore esteem Elohim in your body and in your spirit, which are of Elohim.” – 1 Corinthians 6:18-20, ISR98

harlot-rebel-antichrist-witchcraftStill, disciples are not caught up with unrighteous love that is grounded in the world. Self-indulgence, narcissism, immature rebellion and self-love that are the norms of prevailing culture are not the love of the Father, nor the kind of love that disciples of Messiah involve themselves in. (Matthew 22:37-40; John 13:35; 1 Corinthians 10:8; 1 John 2:15-17; “Agape: Discipleship Is Renewal“; “Shining Love Toward Others in Righteousness“; “The God of General Goodness“)

“Love is patient, is kind, love does not envy, love does not boast, is not puffed up, does not behave indecently, does not seek its own, is not provoked, reckons not the evil, does not rejoice over the unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth, it covers all, believes all, expects all, endures all.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, ISR98

This isn’t endless tolerance and indulgence, but agape, a kind of unconditional love that is willing to forgive.

jesus-teachingEven though Yahshua [Jesus] did not speak directly to many sexual acts and abominations, He was a Man of the Torah, which condemned such things. He did not apologize for His Father’s Word, nor did He need to go into additional teaching on specifics of these matters. He did speak to marriage however. (“Modern Society and Obsolete Marriage“; “Divorce: Modern Family & the Law“; “Wisdom & the Battle of Two Kingdoms“)

“‘For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So that they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what Elohim has joined together, let man not separate.” – Matthew 19:5-6, ISR98

Marriage is a righteous covenant between a husband and wife as defined in scripture, even though men and women often harden their hearts against it. This covenant is with YHWH Elohim, united with husband and wife. (Matthew 15:19-20, 19:4-5; Genesis 2:18-22) The government is not our authority in this matter. (“Breaking Strongholds of False Authority“; “The Role of Authority in Your Life“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“)

come as you are

Yet, how often do pastors beg you to come down to the altar ‘just as you are’ because ‘God loves you.’ This doesn’t mean that Elohim doesn’t expect personal growth or change as you come to know Him. Our Father’s love is not a free pass to do as we please any more than He is a free pass to judge others. Elohim loved the world of man in one way in that He gave His Son, so those that are willing to believe in Him could have eternal life. (John 3:16; Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 4:6) Elohim made great sacrifices so that some might come to salvation, a saving knowledge and living through the Holy Spirit [Dedicated, Set Apart Spirit]. (“Foundation of Salvation“; “Which Shepherd Do You Believe?“; “Scriptures – Qodesh, Being Set Apart“)

Disciples must issue the warning for all the impure of the world to come out of the Babylon that is the world – the kosmos, the current decoration that is the world. Most of the world of man are directly involved in the sins of destruction that we opened with at the beginning of this article. Unless each one repents of personal repetitive sin, they are among the walking dead of man’s system. It is our desire and the desire of Father YHWH that you walk into His abiding love and righteousness. In this way, those that are willing to listen and obey will reflect (or begin to reflect) His righteousness as they live it. (1 John 5:2; 2 John 1:6; 1 Corinthians 5:9-11; John 14:15-17; Exodus 22:19; Leviticus 18:20-21; Romans 12:1-2; “Purity Starts Inside: A Lesson for the Ages“; “The Need to Keep Spiritually Clean“; “Abiding With YHWH in Quiet Places“; “YHWH’s Prayer Shawl of Protection“)

“Certainly, do not be anxious saying: ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For all these things the nations seek. Indeed, your Heavenly Father knows that you need every one of these. Now, seek first the Kingdom of Elohim, and His righteousness. For all these things will be added to you.” – Matthew 6:31-33, direct translation

“Enter in through the narrow gate. Because wide is the gate and spacious the road, put to death through destruction, and many, by their reason, agree to enter. For narrow is the gate and troublesome is the road, the one that leads to life, and few agree to obtain it.” – Matthew 7:13-14, direct translation

“For YAHWEH so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, HRB
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your righteousness. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. May it be as you have promised!
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
