Feelings Shmeelings

God is speaking, and not far off on topic from the last post, Beware of False Prophets & Teachers  where we learn that the church has become mostly entertainment and business.

As a Believer in miracles, signs, and wonders I consider the move of the Holy Spirit to be genuine as I have seen and experienced myself full to overflowing with the divine glory of God. Nevertheless, the Lord is teaching me how this generation is more convinced with a feeling or an experience used as an indicator in and outside the church.

If it feels good or exemplifies love, it's okay. If doing what you desire is pleasurable to the flesh and not breaking the law that's okay too. And why not add Jesus to the mix and call it Christian. Beware! Feelings and experiences are not a test of truth -- God’s truth. Be careful! God’s Word is the only test that can reveal if our feelings or experiences are right, true and permissible.

Recently, I watched a video of preachers debating whether homosexuality is permissible as a Child of God. It left me with more questions, and I pressed in and inquired of the Lord. He answered.

The preachers were speaking with minds of men. The homosexual (gay and gay-affirming pastor) is more loving for this is the emphasis of that preaching, and the other (heterosexual pastor) is more based on the fluidity of the scriptures. Both are failing to see the point. No man shall sleep or lie with another. There is nothing to debate. It is written. It is a closed conversation. When a man or woman abide in me, they know that the Word is their final witness as to how they should live their lives.

Anything that is contrary to God’s Word whether by feeling or experience will not hold when you are in the judgment seat. Only the Word of Our Father in Heaven will stand today, yesterday and forever. In Him, there is no shadow of turning. He is Truth and Life and Light. There is nothing in Him that is false or lying.

Men will deceive men and women will deceive women, and both will deceive each other. But the Father’s Word shall never pass away. It will stand until the end of the age. You have seen the discrepancy and the foolishness of my Word subjected to men’s feelings and experiences and how it defiles the temple, which are the hearts of my people.

Many are called, but few are chosen. Go forth and testify of that which I have given you. Do not let them deceive you for I tell you many will fall away, even the very elect in the last days.

Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.
John 17:17

If a man lies with a male as he lies 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

I’m not a scholar, but a servant of the Most High God. I believe that the Lord is clarifying for many who are on the fence, ignorant of the Father’s heart concerning these lifestyle choices and perhaps being led to believe their salvation is secure. The prophetic voice of the Lord is saying different. I ask you to pray and seek the Lord for yourself so that you may hear Him, and if you have strayed from God’s Truth that you will be able to make a mid-course correction before it’s too late. Don’t be fooled! Read the scriptures for yourself. Sin separates us from God and will keep us from Heaven!

Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him.
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ,
that each one may receive the things done in the body,
according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
2 Corinthians 5:9-10

I do not testify on my behalf, but on the One who has called and sent me to do His bidding. Give your life to Christ fully, and He will receive you unto Himself.

I love you, my brother and sister. My heart is that we will be united in the Lord’s presence.
