Homosexual Pervert takes the Office of a Bishop

John S. Torell

As we in the United States are heading into the end of the fall season and the beginning of winter, we are going to see rain and snow storms moving across our nation. The recent firestorms in Southern California served as a great warning to us that there are no safe places on the earth and that disaster can occur at any time, any place. Our only safety is in the Lord Jesus Christ. These words from Jesus, give me great peace and I want to share them with you:

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27

This is a supernatural peace that passes all understanding. A believer in Christ may be facing a hostile judge, persecution, an execution – whatever comes our way. In the midst of the most terrible situation, the child of God can have and know peace from Jesus, understanding that God has all things under control and that our final destination is heaven itself.

A SPIRITUAL STORM IS BREWING
The recent appointment of an openly professing homosexual, V. Gene Robinson, to the position of bishop in the American Episcopal church shows the further decline of established Christian denominations. Mr. Robinson was "consecrated" into the office of bishop November 2, 2003 at a University of New Hampshire arena. Robinson had invited the homosexual Episcopalian activist, Louie Crew, to attend the consecration service, along with his homosexual partner, his ex-wife and their two daughters. The sin of this man is great, because he has not only professed that he has been having homosexual encounters, but that he is going to continue to have sexual intercourse with men, as he is serving as a bishop. Robinson is shameless, and when he speaks a true Christian can recognize that this man has a reprobate mind. A consecration ceremony is supposed to be a holy moment, when a man of God humbles himself before God and ascends to an office of service in the body of Christ. To stand before God, having his divorced wife and children present while holding hands with another perverted homosexual man as he enters the office of bishop is more than blasphemy, it is beyond words to describe. If this had taken place in 1950, the entire Christian community in the United States would have risen in a strong condemnation of such a shameful act, but only 53 years later it barely makes a ripple among the Christians in America.

Here is what God has spoken, concerning homosexuality:

Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. 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. Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. 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 from among their people. Leviticus 18:22-29

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. Leviticus 20:13

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 into 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, covenant breakers, 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. Romans 1:21-32

This homosexual Episcopal priest would never had been able to stay as a priest nor become a bishop unless there was a sizeable support across the board from other priests and bishops. Around 50 Episcopal bishops attended the service presided over by bishop Frank Griswold and his predecessor as head of the American Episcopal Church. At the end of World War II, homosexual people became more organized and militant. Having been a small minority rejected by the mainstream of the population, they have, through strong armed tactics, been able to take control of the Democratic Party of the United States, as well as entrenching themselves into the Republican Party. With the Supreme court on their side, and federal appeals court judges ruling in favor of homosexual rights, the political map in the United States has shifted from rejection of homosexuals to a protection and open support of them. Homosexual partners now have the legal right to adopt children and in many states a homosexual partner is treated as a spouse when it comes to health and death benefits. The current push now is to recognize homosexual marriages. The American Jewish organization, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), as well as women’s liberation groups, have been strong driving forces behind this movement.

WHAT IS THE MOTIVATING POWER BEHIND THIS PERVERSION?
For many years I have been pointing out that the Man of Sin, the Beast, the Antichrist is going to be a homosexual. God has given us a character description of the Antichrist in the book of Daniel. Here it is:

And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain. Daniel 11:36-39

It should be obvious to every believer in Christ who loves the Lord and is relying upon the King James Bible, that behind the political power of the homosexual perverts is the power of Antichrist, who himself is powered by the Devil. (Revelation 13:1-9).

Satanic supernatural power is seducing our young children to become homosexuals, and once they have become demonized and filled with unrighteousness, they become militant, hard, cold and shameless, as they do the bidding of their master, the Devil. As Christians we must understand that we are not fighting flesh and blood, but principalities in high places who can only be resisted by the use of spiritual weapons. (II Corinthians 10:3-6).
