When a society rebels against God Almighty, absurdity rules!

Tim Wildmon
AFA president

November 2016 – “And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.” (Romans 1:28)

All was quiet in the home state of Andy Griffith until February 22 of this year when the Charlotte City Council passed an ordinance requiring all government agencies and private businesses to insure that men could use women’s bathrooms if they wanted to.

The legal problem with that move was that the state constitution of North Carolina requires all “public accommodation” laws to be handled at the state level. In other words, what Charlotte did was not within their authority, so the governor and the state legislature responded by passing HB 2 on March 23, which “mandates people use the bathroom corresponding to their biological sex in public buildings, places, and schools.”

Simply put, everything was fine – Charlotte enacted a law they had no authority to enact, and the state of North Carolina put everything back like it was.

For this simple common sense law, the state of North Carolina has become the whipping boy for the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, and Transgender political machine and their many powerful supporters in big business, academia, the liberal media, and the entertainment industry.

No single group of people holds more power in America today than does the LGBT lobby, this despite the fact that they represent a relatively small number of people. It is estimated that 2% of Americans are lesbian or gay and 0.3% are transgendered, i.e., a person who is a male but says he is a female or vice versa.

Even the National Collegiate Athletic Association punished North Carolina by taking away sporting events scheduled for the Tar Heel state. NCAA leadership is made up of university presidents. So, very smart people who have reached the highest levels of academia sat around in a room somewhere and decided that because North Carolina wants to keep men out of bathrooms reserved for women and young girls, the state must be punished. And this law applied only to bathrooms, showers, etc. that were state property.

In other knee-jerk reactions over the issue, PayPal Corporation withdrew its plans for building a large office complex in North Carolina. PayPal is the same company that built their global operations center in Malaysia where homosexual behavior is against the law, punishable by whipping or prison time.

The NBA pulled their all-star game out of Charlotte. Christian sports celebrities Russell Wilson and Stephen Curry condemned their home state for wanting to keep women’s bathrooms for women and girls only. Legendary Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said what North Carolina did was “embarrassing.”

What is going on here? Why is the whole world coming down on North Carolina over something like this? Even if you thought welcoming men into women’s restrooms and showers was a good idea, does the penalty fit the “crime?” You would think North Carolina had reinstated slavery.

What is going on is a country in rebellion against God Almighty. This is about putting the final touches on the sexual revolution. The Bible clearly states that homosexuality is unnatural, immoral, and unhealthy. Everyone knows that a man who thinks he is a woman has (what Tim Wildmon calls) a mental disorder (but really Satan puts stuff in our minds), not to mention a spiritual one.

Bruce Jenner will always be a man even if he wears a dress and heels the rest of his life. Yet, his confusion is lauded by the media and popular culture as brave and heroic. What’s really going on here is demonic. It’s a culture shaking its collective fist at God and shouting: “Don’t tell us how to live! We will not listen to your rules!”

What we are watching in America today is Romans 1 being played out before our very eyes.

Pastors Must Preach The Truth

This is the way we need to respond: excerpt taken from Decision magazine, pastors must preach the truth by Bob Coy

"I was met by a man who was fully dressed as a woman. He addressed himself as 'Cheryl.' This man had a question for me: 'Pastor Bob, I want to know, will you accept me here at your church for who I am?'

I answered with a question of my own: 'will you accept me for who I am?' A confused look crossed his face, 'what do you mean?'

I replied, 'I'm a pastor and this is a Bible teaching church. And while you're certainly welcome here, at some point of time I'm going to address the lifestyle that you've chosen. Based on what God has revealed in His Word, I'm bound to share that this isn't His plan or purpose for you or anyone else. So while I certainly welcome and accept you as a guest, I need you to consider if you're willing to accept me for who I am and what I stand for.'

He quietly listened and considered what I had just said. A couple weeks later I saw him again. This time, he was wearing jeans and a shirt instead of a dress, and he now wanted to be known as Mike. I'm glad to say that Mike has been growing in his walk with Christ ever since and has faithfully served as part of our church staff for the past eight years.

As God's people, we're way past the time of pretending we can keep quiet as our society strays further and further from His truth. God has called us out of this world so we could play a part in His plan to save it (Romans 10:15, 2 Cor 5:19)."

10 Ways to Get Out of the Gay Life, Attack on Family & Tolerance

Redeemed!
10 Ways to Get Out of the Gay Life, If You Want Out
by Charlene E. Cothran, Publisher: Venus Magazine

My brother, my sister, please follow me out of this.

1. Establish and accept for yourself that God’s Word is true AS-IS. Do not allow gay theology to divorce the Old testament from the New or the written words of the Apostles from the spoken words of Jesus Christ. This is a good trick, but its no longer working because God is preparing to bring millions of gays and lesbians back to His feet. He has already chosen many of us for this specific purpose and He is waiting for YOU to accept His call.

2. Seek the truth within the scriptures about homosexuality and it will be revealed to you as you read and pray. Know that we were NOT born this way. This myth was fashioned by the gay establishment from Satan as a basis for changing laws in favor of gay rights. Again it works for their purposes, but it is biblically UNTRUE. There is no way that anyone, without an agenda, can come away from The Holy Bible with an endorsement by God of the gay lifestyle. Gay theology starts with an agenda [‘Let’s make the bible say gay is O.K.’] in order to arrive at its conclusions, but it is a lie from Satan.

3. Do not resist God’s call on your life. Get alone with God and let Him minister the truth directly to you. That conviction you feel is a gift to keep you near the cross. If you keep resisting Him and hardening your heart, He will eventually stop calling you. You can then have a great time fulfilling all the fantasies of the flesh without feeling a thing, but what awaits you at the end of such a life? [Romans 2:28]

4. Know with certainty that you are loved by God exactly where you are and that your experiences are of great value for kingdom work. I had BEEN tired, but the enemy kept my mind trapped for years by convincing me that I could not be of any real use to God having lived as an openly gay publisher, but that was a lie.

5. Say Yes. That’s really all it takes to accept the truth which is accepting Jesus Christ. Pray this prayer of repentance with me now and mean it from your heart. “Lord, I’m coming to you because I believe your Word and I need your help. I can’t change myself, I’ve tried. Please forgive me for every thing I’ve done that did not glorify you. I believe that you ARE the Word, I believe that Jesus IS your son, I believe that He DIED for my sins and rose again, and BECAUSE I believe this, I AM NOW SAVED BY YOUR GRACE. Thank you for saving me! In Jesus' name, Amen.”

6. Make your salvation real. Keeping the good news of your personal salvation a secret is another trick the enemy uses to buy time as he tries to pull you back to your former life. We must believe with our hearts AND confess with our mouths. You don’t need to ‘out’ yourself but clobber the enemy by immediately sharing your testimony with SOMEONE about how the Lord has revealed the truth directly to you; about the level of joy and peace you now have which you could not reach without full repentance; about the welcomed change this brings in your life, and all the wonderful things He has done for you. [Romans 10:9]

7. Experience paradise NOW! Consult God first, then go ahead and live your life! Welcome new friendships, start that new venture, expand your experiences, obtain nice things, just don’t put them before God. Enjoy your life to a new degree, without the burden of sin AND with the confidence of ALL of God’s promises on your side! It is totally possible to live for God in this present age and enjoy yourself immensely. When I say live for God I mean totally ‘sold out’ for God. But you cannot be ‘sold out’ for God and live a gay/lesbian lifestyle at the same time. [Titus 2:11-12]

It’s possible to have a BETTER time than you did in the clubs, in the parks, BETTER than all those secret encounters with folks whose names you’ve long forgotten, BETTER than your long-term relationship, BETTER than all your priceless possessions, BETTER than money! Most of us have experienced some of this AND WE WERE STILL MISERABLE. But thanks to God’s mercy and saving grace we don’t have to wait years and years to get to heaven to experience paradise. The earth is the Lord’s, the fullness thereof, the world, and they that dwell therein. Enjoy God’s earth, now. [Psalms 24:1]

8. Walk Carefully or ‘circumspectly’ as the scriptures describe. This is about being careful to keep your spirit clean and fresh. Prayer, along with reading and hearing the Word AND seeking ways to apply it to your daily life is the way to STAY saved and delivered from any sinful habit.

Isn’t it interesting that we sometimes give our garments of clothing more care than we give our very souls. When we put on an outfit, we’re so careful not to lean against anything that might soil it. We protect it while we’re eating so as not to get a spot on it. We sit in such a way to prevent it from wrinkling. Treat your soul’s salvation with at least this much care. [Ephesians 5:15-16]

9. Have fellowship with believers. We know that the church has largely failed gays and lesbians by not being a welcoming place for those who have sought spiritual change. The invitation to ‘come as you are’ seems to be extended to everyone but us. However God has people everywhere who are open, real and willing to walk out with you. Ask the Lord to lead you to a loving, caring, bible-believing fellowship where you can be nurtured, be blessed, grow AND be a blessing. [Hebrews 10:25]

10. Stay in touch. We’d love to hear from you! If this article has helped you, please let us know. Also, if you’d like to share YOUR testimony with VENUS readers, email us at editor@venusmagazine.org

Satan's Attack on the Family

www.gty.org/blog/B100819/the-f…

After God created the first couple and brought them together in the first marriage ceremony, there was perfect harmony, fellowship, and joy. Adam had a wife to fellowship with; the two of them exercised dominion together. Eve had her husband to protect, provide, and care for her. All was well in Eden, for the moment.

Perfection didn’t last long—a serpent was loose in the Garden of Eden, crafty and animated by Satan. He launched the first attack on the first family, striking out against God and His perfect creation.

In the first recorded assault against humanity, Satan sought to overturn God’s pattern of marriage. The devil—in one strategic act of treachery—undermined not only the first family, but God’s entire system of earthly rule. Think about it: God is the head of man, man is the head of woman, and mankind together presides over the animal kingdom. Essentially, the pattern was God, man, woman, animals. Satan literally turned that entire system on its head. An animal (the serpent), came to the woman (Eve), counseled her to act independently of her husband (Adam), and to disobey the creator (God).

From a military standpoint, Satan’s plan was brilliant and won an immediate victory. And his strategy didn’t end with the first parents—he used the same tactics on the first children as well. Adam’s first son, Cain killed his younger brother, Abel, incurring the curse of God on his life. Satan managed to inject poison between spouses, siblings, and in all human relationships.

That’s a pretty impressive track record for Satan—he’s a crafty and wily enemy. He was, and still is, quite the home-wrecker. He tempts us, offers us the opportunity for a sinful alternative to God’s design, and we take what he has to offer, to the detriment of our relationships. Satan has known from the very beginning what many naïve Christians are slow to grasp—the family is key in God’s program. Destroy the family, and society crumbles.

There are too many families for Satan to single-handedly carry out his campaign of destruction, so he enlists the help of contemporary secular society. After all, the “whole world lies in the power of the evil one.” (1 John 5:19). Through ungodly philosophies and ideologies, he continues to attack the traditional roles of men and women within the family. Special-interest groups and government agencies seem bent on the dissolution of the traditional family, advocating the normalization of homosexuality, same-sex “marriage,” and (in some cultures nowadays) sterilization programs. Divorce has been made easy, tax laws penalize marriage, and government welfare rewards childbirth outside of wedlock. All those trends (and many more like them) are direct attacks on the sanctity of the family.

Although many Christian leaders have been passionately voicing concerns about the dissolution of the family for decades, things have grown steadily worse, not better, in society at large. Secular social commentators have lately begun to claim that the traditional nuclear family is no longer even “realistic.” An article published by the online magazine Salon said this: “The ‘ideal’ American family—a father and a mother, bound to each other by legal marriage, raising children bound to them by biology—is a stubborn relic, a national symbol that has yet to be returned as threadbare and somewhat unrealistic.” The nuclear family simply won’t work in twenty-first-century society, according to many of these self-styled “experts.”

I know those voices are wrong, however, because I have witnessed literally thousands of parents in our church who have put into practice what the Bible teaches about the family, and they and their families have been greatly blessed for it.

As society continues its mad quest to eliminate the family, and as our whole culture therefore unravels more and more, it becomes more important than ever for Christians to understand what the Bible teaches about the family, and to put it into practice in their homes. It may well be that the example we set before the world through strong homes and healthy families will in the long run be one of the most powerful, attractive, and living proofs that when the Bible speaks, it speaks with the authority of the God who created us—and whose design for the family is perfect.

The Sin of Tolerance

By Billy Graham • October 3, 2012

At home and abroad, the American people plead for broad-mindedness, tolerance and charity. Abroad, our ambassadors use all of their powers to influence warring parties to come to the conference table in a spirit of give-and-take. There is a sense in which the world needs broad-mindedness and tolerance.

However, in the realm of Christian experience there is a need for intolerance. In some things Christ was the most tolerant, broad-minded Man who ever lived, but in other things He was one of the most intolerant.

Tolerance Can Become Too Stretched
One of the pet words of this age is tolerance. It is a good word, but we have tried to stretch it over too great an area. We have applied it, too often, where it does not belong. The word tolerant means liberal and broad-minded. In one sense, it implies the compromise of one’s convictions, a yielding of ground upon important issues.

We have become tolerant about divorce, the use of alcohol, delinquency, wickedness in high places, immorality, crime and godlessness. We have been sapped of conviction, drained of our beliefs, and we are bereft of our faith.

The sciences, however, are narrow-minded. There is no room for careless broad-mindedness in the laboratory. Water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit at sea level; it is never 100 degrees nor 189 degrees, nor 211. Fresh water freezes at 32 degrees; it is never 23 degrees nor 31.

Mathematics is also narrow-minded. The sum of two plus two is four, never three-and-a-half. Geometry is narrow-minded. It says that a straight line is the shortest distance between two points on a plane. A compass is narrow-minded; it always points to the magnetic north. If it were broad-minded, ships at sea and planes in the air would be in danger.

If you should ask a man the directions to New York City and he said, “Oh, just take any road you wish, they all lead to New York,” you would question both his sanity and his truthfulness. Nevertheless, we have somehow gotten it into our minds that “all roads lead to Heaven.”

But Jesus Christ, who journeyed from Heaven to Earth and back to Heaven again, who knew the way better than anyone who ever lived, said, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).

Jesus Was Narrow About the Way of Salvation
Jesus plainly pointed out that there are two roads in life. One is broad, lacking in faith, convictions and morals. It is the easy, popular, careless way. Jesus said, “There are many who go in by it.” But He pointed out that this road, heavily traveled though it is, leads to destruction. And in loving, compassionate intolerance, He says: “Enter by the narrow gate … because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life.”

His was the intolerance of a pilot who maneuvers his plane through the storm, realizing that a single error, just one flash of broad-mindedness, might bring disaster to all his passengers.

Once when we were flying from Korea to Japan, we ran through a rough snowstorm. When we arrived over the airport in Tokyo, the ceiling and visibility were almost zero. The pilot had to make an instrument landing. I sat up in the cockpit and watched him sweat it out as a man in the tower at the airport talked us in.

I did not want this man to be broad-minded. I wanted him to be narrow-minded. I knew that our lives depended on it. Just so, when we come in for the landing in the great airport in Heaven, I don’t want any broad-mindedness. I want to come in on the beam, and even though I may be considered narrow here, I want to be sure of a safe landing there.

Christ was so intolerant of our lost estate that He left His lofty throne in the heavenlies, took on Himself the form of man, suffered at the hands of evil men and died on a cruel cross of shame to purchase our redemption. So serious was our plight that He could not look upon it lightly. He could not be broad-minded about a world held captive by its lusts.

Christ spoke of two roads, two kingdoms, two masters, two rewards and two eternities. And He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). We have the power to choose whom we will serve, but the alternative to choosing Christ brings certain destruction. The broad, easy, popular way leads to death and destruction. Only the way of the cross leads home.

Peter was reflecting Christ’s teaching when he said, “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name [than Jesus Christ] under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).

The popular, tolerant attitude toward the Gospel of Christ is like a person going to watch the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Atlanta Braves play a baseball game and rooting for both sides. Baseball fans are very intolerant. If you were to cheer for both sides in Los Angeles or in Atlanta, someone would yell, “Hey, you, make up your mind who you’re rooting for.”

Christ said, “You cannot serve God and mammon … no one can serve two masters” (Matthew 6:24). We need more people who will step out and say unashamedly: “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15).

Jesus Was Intolerant Toward Hypocrisy
He pronounced more woes on the Pharisees than on any other sect because they were given to outward piety, but inside they were a sham. “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!” He said, “For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence” (Matthew 23:25).

A counterfeit Christian, single-handedly, can do more to retard the progress of the church than a dozen saints can do to forward it. That is why Jesus was so intolerant of sham! A great church leader said that the greatest need in the church today is for church members to live what they profess.

The hypocrite has nothing but the contempt of his or her neighbors and the judgment of God hereafter. That is why Jesus said, “Do not be like the hypocrites” (Matthew 6:16).

Jesus Was Intolerant Toward Selfishness
He said, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself” (Luke 9:23). Self-centeredness is the basic cause of much of our distress in life. Hypochondria, a mental disorder that is accompanied by melancholy and depression, is often caused by self-pity and self-centeredness.

Jesus was intolerant of selfishness. To the rich young ruler He said, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven …” (Matthew 19:21). It wasn’t the giving of his goods that Jesus demanded, but his release from selfishness and its devastating effects on his personality and life.

Jesus was intolerant of selfishness when He said, “For whoever desires to save his life shall lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake will find it” (Matthew 16:25). The life that Jesus urges us to lose is the selfishness that lives within us, the old nature of sin that is in conflict with God. Peter, James and John left their nets, but Jesus did not object to nets as such; it was the selfish living they symbolized that He wanted them to forsake. Matthew left the “custom seat,” a political job, to follow Christ. But Jesus did not object to a political career. It was the selfish quality of living that it represented that He wanted Matthew to forsake.

Jesus Was Intolerant Toward Sin
He was tolerant toward the sinner, but intolerant toward the evil that enslaves the sinner. To the adulteress He said, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more” (John 8:11). He forgave her because He loved her; but He condemned her sin because He loathed it with a holy hatred.
God has always been intolerant toward sin! His Word says: “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil …” (Isaiah 1:16).

“Awake to righteousness, and do not sin” (1 Corinthians 15:34).

Christ was so intolerant toward sin that He died on the cross to free men and women from its power. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). Sin lies at the root of most of society’s difficulties today. Whatever separates a person from God disunites that person from others. The world’s problems will never be solved until the question of sin is settled.

The cross is God’s answer to sin. To all who will receive the blessed news of salvation through Christ, it crosses out—cancels forever—sin’s power.

Forest rangers know the value of the “burn-back” in fighting forest fires. To save an area from uncontrolled fire, they carefully burn away the trees and shrubs to create a safety barrier. When the forest fire reaches that burned-out spot, plants and animals standing inside the area protected by the burn-back are safe from the flames. Fire is thus fought by fire.

Calvary was a colossal fighting of fire by fire. Christ, taking on Himself all of our sins, allowed the fire of sin’s judgment to fall upon Him. The area around the cross has become a place of refuge for all who would escape the judgment of sin. Take your place with Him at the cross; stand by the cross; yield your life to Him who redeemed you on the cross, and the fire of sin’s judgment can never touch you.

God is intolerant toward sin. That intolerance sent His Son to die for us. He has said “that whoever believes in Him shall not perish.” The clear implication is that those who refuse to believe in Him will be eternally lost. Come to Christ today, while His Spirit is speaking to your heart!

Freed from bondage, Alive in Christ!

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 3, 2014, 6:55 AM


Jesus found me and loves me!

I wanted to share my testimony about how Jesus freed me from the deception of lesbianism from Satan and how Jesus saved me and the truth He has shown me and to share in love with others.  I wanted to write about my amazing experiences and my love for our living Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!  :iconbigheartplz:

I have always believed in God since I can remember and grew up in Church and went to Sunday School and vacation Bible school and always felt at home.  Then when I was a teenager, I just stopped going to Church but never stopped believing in God.  I went to Church very rarely since and then over ten or so years, I had an awakening. I was doing all kinds of things against God and a lot of the things I knew were wrong but I was in rebellion.

The Lord allowed me to see what I would be facing if I didn't turn to Him. He allowed me to see a demon and that hell is a real place and that I would be there if I didn't stop what I was doing. I didn't realize what I was doing as far as needing to accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior and stop doing what I was doing. I knew things I did was wrong but I didn't know the extent of what my sin was doing. I didn't realize that I was breaking God's heart. I turned right to Jesus and proclaimed Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I went back to the church I grew up in and got down on my knees and cried out to Jesus and prayed and He was my Lord and Savior.

So Jesus was my Lord for about ten years but I still was missing something. As the years went by, I was slowly doing things against God because I never completely surrendered my will to Jesus. Even though my sin wasn't to the same extent, it was all equal in God's eyes. I also felt depressed for so long because of my ex-boyfriend leaving me back in 2002.  Then in 2011, I felt like I had nothing left to live for when my grandmother passed away.  I prayed to Jesus that I just want Him to bring me home as well because I didn't belong here.  I lost my grandmother who was a second mother to me and like a best friend.

I just felt so lost and as time went on from when I first turned to Jesus, until September 2014, I got caught up in all kinds of sins, I didn't realize again, about complete surrender to The Lord. Mostly sexual sins I was doing. I didn't realize again, that I was breaking God's heart. And I also didn't realize that I was losing my salvation.

And then an amazing thing happened, a miracle happened. I was at the gym in September 2014, and while on the treadmill, The Lord put on my heart to live for Him. An incredible feeling. The Lord speaking to me in my spirit. Then I prayed that I want to live my life for Jesus and that I give Him my whole heart and soul and everything of me.  I wanted Him to lead my life and me not live for myself anymore.  

That day, after leaving the gym, I was at a stop light. There was a truck in front of me. In huge painted letters, read "The way maker" and underneath, "Jesus will make a way." There are no words. Jesus came into my heart. The next day, I saw a license plate that said I'll return for you in an abbreviated way.


Shortly after, one day I was worshiping and praising and I felt His presence come upon me and I'll never forget it. I have also felt the fire and the water. The baptism by fire and the living water. It was so amazing and incredible and I knew at that moment that He loves and forgives me my sins.  I just want to worship and praise Him for eternity and be with Him, The Father and The Holy Spirit in God's Kingdom for eternity. 

It wasn't until I completely surrendered my will to Jesus that I felt the overcoming of the Holy Spirit.

So when I gave my life to Jesus, in September 2014, the sinful desires that were in me, from Satan, were no longer there. Satan put the desires in me, but Jesus took them away.  When I felt the overcoming of the Holy Spirit, I was never feeling so alive and free. And when we have the Holy Spirit, we don’t want to sin at all. I was dead in my sins but now I am alive in Christ.  Here on earth, we will have temptations but I don't want to sin anymore. And I want to share with you this truth that The Lord has shown me and many others to know to share with others. Satan put all kinds of stuff in my mind but Jesus freed me from that bondage. Jesus also showed me this scripture:

1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,
10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

I was dying spiritually and breaking God's heart but I was washed and cleansed by the blood of Jesus. I care about everyone and want no one to be deceived by the enemy and that's why I'm sharing what I've been through and how Jesus freed me and His truth to share with others in love. I know not everyone will receive or accept but after what I've been through, I can't not share. I pray and share God's truth in love and how He's changed me and freed me from Satan's bondage and saved me.

Before I gave to Jesus, all my sexual immorality was taking me further and further away from God. I also want to share, talk about and inform about one of my biggest sins I was caught up in before Jesus freed me and about how he freed me. Especially now after what the SCOTUS did back in June. And share an amazing testimony from a woman who was caught up in this deception even more than I was, and Jesus lead me to this testimony on YouTube that I included below. And this is not about hating people, this is about hating the sin, which Christ died on the cross to save us all from. And this is something I was caught up in before I gave my life to Jesus.

Romans 6:20-23

Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ 

20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.


I am writing you because I am being greatly led by the Holy Spirit to share this truth in love and I don't want anyone to be deceived. Satan put lesbianism in my mind for over the course of years. And it was taking me further and further away from God. But when I gave my life to Jesus, I was freed from Satan's bondage.  I was caught up in all this stuff and I realized recently that to not share God's truth (after what happened to me) in a loving way and let people just go on and do their own thing thinking it's okay is being hateful and basically saying to people that you don't care if they're separated from God for eternity.
There's a right way and wrong way to go about things.
It's wrong to hold up signs that God hates gays or to completely disown a family member. God loves us all so much but He hates sin and we also are to hate sin. I was loving my sin but I was also breaking God's heart. God is leading me and everyone who is truly following Him, to share the truth in a loving way and pray for the people to come to Jesus. We don't support or celebrate sin but pray for the people to come to Jesus.
This horrible law by SCOTUS this past June is an attack by Satan on God's plan.
Romans 1 in addition to other places in God's Word shares that God has given people over to their sins. We have turned our backs on Him as a nation and world and He has given people over to their sin. It's all in God's Word, The Holy Bible. I want no one to be deceived. That's what Satan does. He puts whatever he can into people's minds to keep us away from God. He wants to drag us down to where he is.


I am praying for everyone. Our living God, our living Lord and Savior, Jesus, our Heavenly Father, is holy and He does NOT make anyone gay or lesbian or transgender or bi.
When you read all of God's Word, The Holy Bible and are filled with The Holy Spirit, God makes it very clear that He doesn't make anyone that way. Satan is the true enemy of our souls and doesn't want us to be with Jesus and he knows only Jesus saves and he lies and deceives and puts confusion and perversions in people's minds. I was included but Jesus freed me from Satan's bondage.
Satan put in my mind that deception he does with thousands and thousands of people, to be with the same sex but The Lord freed me and showed me the truth. If I were to be in unrepentant sexual immorality which includes homosexuality, then I would not spend eternity with Jesus because our bodies are supposed to be temples for The Holy Spirit. Light and dark cannot live in us at the same time. A person cannot be LGBT and a true follower of Jesus at the same time. Don't be deceived by Satan (who also makes people believe in evolution to keep people away from God) which is what the devil wants. Jesus will free you from Satan's bondage if you let Him, like He did for me.
Please watch the video below and other videos on my page from this woman who was a gay activist and another follower of Jesus who shares how Jesus freed him and how Jesus freed her just like He freed me.


Please seek Jesus and He will free you like He freed me.  This whole LGBT lifestyle is not from God, it's from Satan.  We need to share the truth in a loving way and pray for these people to be free of Satan’s bondage.  And the most loving thing we can do is share the truth in a loving way and pray for people.  Not encourage sin but encourage these people to come out of this destructive lifestyle.  Because you can't love both the person and their sin at the same time.  I care about people and want no one to be deceived by the enemy.  Satan is attacking God's plan by putting all this stuff in people's minds.  Satan attacked God's plan by having prayer taken out of school.  Satan attacked God's plan by having abortion legal.  Satan attacked God's plan back on June 2015 with the same sex marriage thing.  When we turn our backs on God, we are letting Satan in.  This is the truth that is the reality we need to acknowledge.

So no longer am I being led by man or my fleshly desires (even though here on earth, we will be tempted), I am being led by God, through the Holy Spirit and I share this with you so you might also be free in Christ.  And when we have the Holy Spirit in us, no sin will we feel comfortable supporting because God doesn't support any sin.


The truth is we are all in a fallen world, all broken and born with a sinful nature, all in a spiritual battle, and all in need of Jesus who is the only one who can free us from Satan's bondage. This is why it's so very important to stay very close to Jesus and be in His Word. No matter what sin Satan has us trapped in, whether drunkenness, theft, homosexuality, lesbianism, adultry, pornography, drugs, or any other sin, we have a Lord and Savior, Jesus, who will break those chains when we turn to Him. We need to proclaim Jesus' freeing power whenever someone is struggling with something and pray for them. Jesus freed me from Satan's bondage and He will do the same for anyone and everyone who will let Him.
When we completely surrender our will to The Lord's and want to truly follow Him, the Holy Spirit comes in and lives in us and helps us to be more and more like Christ. We are  being hateful when we encourage ANY sin instead of praying for the people.  When Jesus was on that cross, He said Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.  So we also pray because chains from Satan need to be broken.  Satan has so many people trapped in bondage of pornography,  drugs, homosexuality, lesbianism as he did with me, alcoholism and any other sin.  Jesus will free us when we turn to Him and let Him free us.




God loves us all but He hates sin. He calls us to love everyone as a person but hate their sin. We can't both love someone and love their sin at the same time. We are to pray for them and share the truth in love. We are all sinners and the best thing and most loving thing we can do is pray for the people.

◄ Romans 5:8 ►
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Jesus didn't die on the cross for us to keep sinning. He died on the cross to SAVE us from our sin. Jesus shows this other scripture:

1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

********And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.**********


Notice the starred part. I was more than one of those but I was washed and cleansed by the blood of Christ. That's why we are to pray and not support sin. We can't be made new in Christ until we come to Him with a repentant heart. And there was a time I was loving my sin but I was breaking God's heart. Now that I surrendered my will to Jesus, I am being led by the Holy Spirit to pray for people and share the truth in love. God wants us to come to Him as we are but He's not going to keep us where we are. We will become more and more like Christ. But we have to be willing to let Him.

If we all opened our hearts and seek Him with our whole heart, he will come.  He will come.  He wants us all to be with Him.  He loves us.I just wanted to share this and I wanted to share these couple scriptures:

Matthew 7:7
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.…

Psalm 37:4
Trust in the LORD and do good; Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.  Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.  Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.…

It's so amazing how your life will change when you start living your life for Jesus.  All the time you hear about people's lives changing when they turn to God and people having these experiences like feeling His presence or seeing Jesus or an angel or Heaven.  It's not just a coincidence.  He comes to those who are really thirsty for Him and want the love, peace and righteousness that He is.  Jesus, God The Father and The Holy Spirit are love itself, peace itself and righteousness itself.  He wants us to be with Him in His kingdom for eternity.  We just need to believe in Him and open our hearts and put everything in His hands.

I surrender everything to Him and I never have felt so free and alive.  Now that He is leading my life and I am no longer living for myself, it's so amazing and I just want to be with Him.  I realize I do have a purpose in my life and everything good is because of Jesus.  He knows every single thing about me and I am learning more and more about Him by reading The Bible.  He is the true friend anyone can ever have.  I am so happy to have Jesus as my Lord and as my Savior.  He loves me and died on the cross for me.  He died on the cross for all of us because He loves us all so much.  I can never give enough thanks and praise and worship to Him for what He did for me, for us.  He saved my life and I live my life for Him and I just want to be there with the saints and angels in Heaven praising, worshiping and singing to Him for eternity.  There are no words for how much I love Him and how grateful I am to Him.

I have cried tears of joy for Him loving me and being with me and I truly can never have a better best friend.  Jesus is my true best friend.  I love Him above all, He is above all.  I love you so much, more than anything, Jesus! You are the reason I am here and I am nothing without you!  :heart:

I have all this love and it's Jesus, our Lord and Savior that I give it all to!

Since I've given my life to our Lord Jesus and have received the Holy Spirit, I am being led by God and He gives me this amazing love, peace and joy beyond words. He is full of so much love, mercy, grace, forgiveness and I love reading His Word and knowing His truth. What you see on my page is God’s truth and how Jesus freed me from Satan's bondage (mostly sexual immorality including lesbianism) I was in for years. Many things I posted, I'm not only led to and God can use me to help others but it's inspiring and encouraging for me and can be for others as well. Many people think they are free without Jesus but that kind of freedom leads to death. Jesus died on the cross for us for our sins to give us eternal life when we come to Him with repentant hearts. None of us deserve to be with a holy God but He loves us and wants us to turn to Him and trust Him and commit to Him. He created us all for fellowship with Him but because of sin, that fellowship is broken. But we all have a chance here on earth to come to Him. And it all starts at the cross. We acknowledge we are sinners and need a savior. We acknowledge Jesus was sent here to save us from our sin and He died on the cross for us. We acknowledge three days later, God raised Him from the dead and He physically ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of The Father, our Heavenly Father. He will come again in His own timing.

Also, I wanted to mention, and I did this for years, that just believing in Jesus as Lord and Savior, is not enough. The demons believe and know Jesus is Lord. We need to surrender our will to Jesus and make Him Lord over ALL areas of our life. We need to be souled out for Jesus. The Lord showed me this. We are to be either on fire for Jesus or completely against Him. Not lukewarm and just attending church on Sunday. I ask and plead to you all to commit and devote your lives to Jesus, give Him your whole heart, be in a committed relationship with Him and He will fill you with the amazing love, peace and joy that only He gives. You will feel so alive in your soul and spirit. He gives life and He will make you new and you will be sanctified. He wants to cleanse and sanctify us and make us new but we have to allow Him to do it.

None of us know when our time is coming and that's why it's so important to watch our life and doctrine (God's Word) closely, and stay so very close in a relationship with Jesus. We DON'T KNOW the day or the hour. And I didn't have an understanding of this before. For 35 years of my life, I was living a carefree life but I wasn't really living. Apart from Christ and not giving Him my whole heart, I was dying spiritually. I plead with everyone who reads this: Get out while you can. Because if I died in my sins (in lesbianism), I would not be with Jesus. God says in His Word that there were people who followed Christ after He ascended into Heaven who would plead with people to get out of whatever bondage they were caught up in. Let Jesus free you from whatever Satan has you trapped in. Jesus is our ONLY hope!!!



1 Timothy 4:16
16 Pay close attention to yourself [concentrate on your personal development] and to your teaching; persevere in these things [hold to them], for as you do this you will ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you.



Acts 2:36-41
36 Therefore let all the house of Israel recognize beyond all doubt that God has made Him both Lord and Christ (Messiah, Anointed)—this Jesus whom you crucified.”

The Ingathering

37 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart [with remorse and anxiety], and they said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what are we to do?”38 And Peter said to them, “Repent [change your old way of thinking, turn from your sinful ways, accept and follow Jesus as the Messiah] and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ because of the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise [of the Holy Spirit] is for you and your children and for all who are far away [including the Gentiles], as many as the Lord our God calls to Himself.” 40 And Peter solemnly testified and continued to admonish and urge them with many more words, saying, “Be saved from this crooked and unjust generation!” 41 So then, those who accepted his message were baptized; and on that day about 3,000 souls were added [to the body of believers].

Jesus is the ONLY way of salvation. Put your trust into Jesus, He loves you! :heart:

I love You, my Lord Jesus!My dear, dear Lord Jesus,
I never knew what love is until I gave my life to you.
I never felt so loved and cared for until I came out of the dark and came into your glorious light.
I cannot contain my love.

Nothing here on earth, no amount of earthly pleasures can compare to the treasure I have found in you.
I will remain in Your love, my Lord.
I will remain in Your love always.

Jesus is Holy!
Tuesday, May 3, 2016 | Matt Barber - Guest Columnist

Barber, Matt (Liberty Counsel)

Rather than being fearless "servants of Christ," far too many believers today have busied themselves with "trying to please people." Like the Galatians, they have created a false gospel to that end.

"The Gospel of Christ doesn't care about 'tolerance.' It cares about truth."

These words caused me to look up from my Bible Gateway app where I was reading along with selected scriptures. Matt Short, missions pastor at One Community Church in Lynchburg, Virginia, had just uttered from the pulpit a profound reality that, regrettably, we hear far too infrequently from this millennial generation (or any generation for that matter).

After several weeks of having worshiped with this young church body, I've been repeatedly shocked, and pleasantly so, that, under the headship of lead pastor Paul Dudley and, clearly, the guidance of the Holy Spirit, this group of faithful 20- and 30-somethings does not sidestep truth, in love, as concerns transcendent issues that in today's politically correct and postmodern culture (to include much of Christianity) are considered highly controversial.

Pastor Short judiciously stacked his words – words that blossomed from the very Vine of Truth Himself – upon that elusive sweet spot in the tense continuum between truth and grace: two central features of Christ's nature that are neither mutually exclusive nor at odds with one another.

"There is nothing new under the sun," we are reminded in Ecclesiastes 1:9.

Indeed, by today's secular-progressive standards – and, more vexing yet, by the standards of lukewarm Christians and ministries that, under the intense thaw of postmodern paganism, fall away from the berg like vast chunks of ice – Christ Jesus Himself would, like so many of his followers today, be slandered as an "intolerant bigot" and crucified all over again.

To be sure, under the contemporary misconception of "tolerance," which supposes that one must not only tolerate sin of every stripe, but refuse to call it even that, Christ was (and is) intolerant indeed. Rather than admonishing the adulterous woman to "Go now and leave your life of sin" (see John 8:11), postmodernism, to include the moral relativist yeast that leavens the body of Christ, demands, at once, that our never-changing Lord change the unchangeable: "Go now and continue your life of sin."

This is not true grace.

It is cheap grace.

And it is apostasy.

While it is true that none of us is without sin (I'm the first to drop my stone in the sand for this reason), we are nonetheless commanded to repent of our sins: "I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will likewise perish" (Luke 13:3).

The first step to repentance is recognizing sin for what it is and rejecting deceptive attempts to sanitize it by calling it something else (i.e., "choice," "sexual orientation," "she's not my wife, but we're soul mates" and the like). Alas, 'tis true: "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter" (Isaiah 5:20).

Indeed, far too many "seeker-friendly" and mainline Christian denominations do just that. They call evil good. They intentionally omit the central "repent and go and sin no more" elements of the good news (or otherwise affirm sin altogether) for fear of driving away would-be fish in the net – those slippery little buggers (aren't we all?) who prefer whirling about in a toxic sea of temptation, rather than surrendering to the ultimate Fisher of Men.


Pastor Short, to his credit, did no such thing. In fact, he went on to address Paul's rebuke of the church in Galatia. Much like today's "nicer than Jesus" set, they, too, for different reasons perhaps, adopted a false gospel that, in their eyes, made them more "relevant" and palatable to the world around them.

Sound familiar?

Wrote Paul: "I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God's curse!" (Galatians 1:6-8).

Not very tolerant.

But grace, tempered with truth, nonetheless.

"As we have already said," Paul continued, "so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God's curse! Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ" (Galatians 1:9-10).

And so, according to Paul, those who shrink from the "full counsel of God" are not only out of line, they are under "God's curse." The fall he took on the road to Damascus clearly knocked free his ability to skate the thin ice of political correctness.

Still, like the Galatians, far too many in today's church are more concerned with not offending others, most especially those who are without Christ, and, rather than being fearless "servants of Christ," instead have busied themselves with "trying to please people."

And, like the Galatians, they have created a false gospel to that end.

Pleasing the world is not taking up your cross and suffering for Christ. Pleasing the world is a cakewalk. "If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you" (John 15:19).

Does the world hate you?

It should.

We can't belong to the world and to Christ.

We must choose.

Free of bondage, Alive in Christ!

I wanted to share this to encourage people that they can be free in Christ, no longer trapped in Satan's bondage. God created everyone male or female from in the mother's womb. That's it. I pray for everyone because God makes no one in the wrong body as Satan wants people to believe. Don't let Satan deceive you. Jesus will make you whole and complete, you only have to allow Him. Invite Him in today!

Jeremiah 1:4-5

4 The word of the LORD came to me, saying,
5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart"

Psalm 139:11-14

11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,
and the light about me be night,”
12 even the darkness is not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light with you.
13 For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.

Deuteronomy 22:5

5 “A woman shall not wear a man’s clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman’s clothing; for whoever does these things is utterly repulsive to the Lord your God.

Question: "Can a person be born with the wrong gender?"

Answer:
We live in a confused and fallen world, and that confusion extends everywhere, so that even the most basic questions, like “what gender am I?” become difficult for some people to answer. Some people claim they were born as the wrong gender, or at least in the wrong body. A man may believe he is actually a female, but his soul is “stuck” in a male body. Such claims receive support from others who advocate a “gender-neutral” society. But those who view gender distinctions as nothing more than arbitrary labels or a “box” to be broken out of are actively rejecting God’s design in creation.

Fundamental to our understanding of human sexuality is that God created two (and only two) genders. Currently, the world likes to consider gender (based on a social construct) as having nothing to do with sex (based on physicality), but the Bible makes no such distinctions. The Bible cuts through the world’s confusion simply: “Male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:27). All the modern-day speculation about multiple genders—or even a gender “continuum” with unlimited genders—is unbiblical. An individual may claim to be transgender or “gender-fluid,” but that doesn’t nullify God’s design and purpose in creating him or her.

Children growing up in this confused world are bombarded with messages of confusion. Little boys are told they don’t have to be boys; girls are told they might not really be girls. Whatever they feel they are is what they are—boy, girl, or a mixture of the two. The world tells them it doesn’t matter. The confusion and ambiguity are reinforced in many ways: gender-neutral days at school, the banning of terms such as boys and girls in the classroom, the proliferation of unisex restrooms, curricula that promotes homosexual marriage, etc. It’s little wonder that some people grow up struggling with their sexual identity. But our Lord warned against leading children astray: “Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come. It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble’” (Luke 17:1–2).

Some people today state that they have “felt like the opposite gender since they were children.” But how would one know that? To what are they comparing their feelings? How people feel is all they know, and, for each person, how he feels is “normal” for him. Any comparisons to other people’s feelings would only be an assumption. Some people may become convinced that they “felt like the opposite gender” at some point in their lives, but they don’t truly have a baseline comparison.

Given enough conditioning, any one of us can be convinced that we identify more as the opposite gender. Too often, certain individuals are labeled as cross-gendered because of natural differences in mannerisms and responses, and those individuals “back-paint” the concept into their understanding of their childhood.

But this reimagining of one’s childhood is different from wishing to be another gender. A person can wish he was the other gender for many reasons, but that doesn’t make it internally so. A parent can instill that desire in a child, or a child can observe benefits enjoyed by the other gender and desire them. The child can also desire to be seven feet tall, but it doesn’t change reality.

The Bible says that God created “male and female” and He pronounced His creation “very good” (Genesis 1:27, 31). God’s plan was perfect, but, as with everything in mankind’s sphere, perfection was corrupted by sin. Sin brought anomalies, and we would be hard pressed to understand where the touch of this contamination ends in the creation. Could an anomaly sometimes occur in gender, physically or mentally? We acknowledge that a person can be born with a combination of male and female organs—although one’s true, biological sex can be determined through medical tests.

This we know, that we are involved in a spiritual battle for our souls. The world seeks to conform us to its mold, which is why we must be transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:1–2). Satan attempts to deceive us and urges us to question God’s plan. One of the devil’s ploys is to make us dissatisfied with how God made us. To some he whispers, “You’re fat and ugly.” To others, “You’re stupid and clumsy.” And to still others, “You look like a boy, but you’re really a girl.” In each case, the underlying message is the same: “God messed up on you.”

This we also know, that the whole creation groans for release from the curse and damage of sin (Romans 8:20–22). The ruin wrought by sin is addressed through the redemption of Christ. Through salvation, Jesus Christ grants us forgiveness of sin, reverses the effect of our poor choices, and compensates for our brokenness.

Each of us faces a different set of battles. Yet Christ sets us on the path to victory. Hebrews 12:1–2 states, “Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” The cross is key. Jesus pioneered our faith, and He will perfect it. His victory will be ours as well.

Some may battle homosexual temptation, greed, pride, anger, or any number of sins. Someone else may battle gender confusion. Regardless of the battle with sin and the devil’s lies, the question we must answer is, “Is Christ and His redemptive work sufficient for our battles?” Jesus definitely claims to be sufficient for any and all of our battles, and He desires to sanctify us through His Word of truth (John 17:17).

As children of God, we should be content in this life (Philippians 4:11; 2 Corinthians 12:10). We realize that we all have limitations, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. But through Christ those limitations will not interfere with the plan God has for us to honor Him and serve Him. “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).


If a person feels he or she has been born as the wrong gender, the answer is not gender-reassignment surgery, hormone therapy, cross-dressing, etc. Those are simply worldly ways of acquiescing to the devil’s lies. “Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth” (1 Corinthians 13:6). And God does not make mistakes. The one who feels he or she was born in the wrong body needs, first and foremost, to experience the transformative power of Christ. When we “participate in the divine nature,” we escape “the corruption in the world caused by evil desires” (2 Peter 1:4).

Testimony of coming to Christ, sharing the truth in love!

March 2016
Lord Jesus is alive, sitting on His throne in His kingdom! We all are created with souls and we were never originally intended to die here on earth. But because of sin, we are a fallen world. Our Heavenly Father sent our Lord Jesus here to save us from death because He loves us all so much. He came to save us from eternal torment, forever separated from God by dying on the cross for us and He defeated the grave. Seek Jesus with all your heart and soul and He will find you. Invite Jesus into your heart today, before it's too late. Because once eternity starts, there are no more chances. Put your trust in Christ! He loves us all so much and wants to free us all from whatever we're struggling with, whatever bondage we're trapped in. Jesus freed and saved me, He wants to free and save ALL of us!


Jesus says "blessed are those who believe without seeing."

◄ Deuteronomy 4:29 ►

But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.

I am writing you because I am being greatly led by the Holy Spirit to share this truth in love and I don't want anyone to be deceived. Satan put lesbianism, among other sins, in my mind for over the course of years. And it was bringing me further and further away from God. But when I gave my life to Jesus, I was freed from Satan's bondage. I was caught up in all this stuff and I realized recently that to not share God's truth (after what happened to me) in a loving way and let people just go on and do their own thing thinking it's okay is being hateful and basically saying to people that you don't care if they're separated from God for eternity.
There's a right way and wrong way to go about things.
It's wrong to hold up signs that God hates gays or to completely disown a family member. God loves us all so much but He hates sin and we also are to hate sin. I was loving my sin but I was also breaking God's heart. God is leading me and everyone who is truly following Him, to share the truth in a loving way and pray for the people to come to Jesus. We don't support or celebrate sin but pray for the people to come to Jesus.
This horrible law by SCOTUS this past June is an attack by Satan on God's plan.
Romans 1 in addition to other places in God's Word shares that God has given people over to their sins. We have turned our backs on Him as a nation and world and He has given people over to their sin. It's all in God's Word, The Holy Bible. I want no one to be deceived. That's what Satan does. He puts whatever he can into people's minds to keep us away from God. He wants to drag us down to where he is.

I am praying for everyone. Our living God, our living Lord and Savior, Jesus, our Heavenly Father, is holy and He does NOT make anyone gay or lesbian or transgender or bi.
When you read all of God's Word, The Holy Bible and are filled with The Holy Spirit, God makes it very clear that He doesn't make anyone that way. Satan is the true enemy of our souls and doesn't want us to be with Jesus and he knows only Jesus saves and he lies and deceives and puts confusion and perversions in people's minds. I was included but Jesus freed me from Satan's bondage.
Satan put in my mind that deception he does with thousands and thousands of people, to be with the same sex but The Lord freed me and showed me the truth. If I were to be in unrepentant sexual immorality which includes homosexuality, then I would not spend eternity with Jesus because our bodies are supposed to be temples for The Holy Spirit. Light and dark cannot live in us at the same time. A person cannot be LGBT and a true follower of Jesus at the same time. Don't be deceived by Satan (who also makes people believe in evolution to keep people away from God) which is what the devil wants. Jesus will free you from Satan's bondage if you let Him, like He did for me.
Please watch the videos below from this woman who was a gay activist and how Jesus freed her from Satan's bondage.

Please watch the video below and other videos on my page from this woman who was a gay activist and another follower of Jesus who shares how Jesus freed him and how Jesus freed her just like He freed me.

Please seek Jesus and He will free you like He freed me. This whole LGBT lifestyle is not from God, it's from Satan. We need to share the truth in a loving way and pray for these people to be free of Satan’s bondage. And the most loving thing we can do is share the truth in a loving way and pray for people. Not encourage sin but encourage these people to come out of this destructive lifestyle. Because you can't love both the person and their sin at the same time. I care about people and want no one to be deceived by the enemy. Satan is attacking God's plan by putting all this stuff in people's minds. Satan attacked God's plan by having prayer taken out of school. Satan attacked God's plan by having abortion legal. Satan attacked God's plan back on June 2015 with the same sex marriage thing. Satan is attacking God's plan by breaking down the family, because he hates us and we are listening to his lies instead of God's truth. When we turn our backs on God, we are letting Satan in. This is the truth that is the reality we need to acknowledge.

So no longer am I being led by man or my fleshly desires (even though here on earth, we will be tempted), I am being led by God, through the Holy Spirit and I share this with you so you might also be free in Christ. And when we have the Holy Spirit in us, no sin will we feel comfortable supporting because God doesn't support any sin.

The truth is we are all in a fallen world, all broken and born with a sinful nature, all in a spiritual battle, and all in need of Jesus who is the only one who can free us from Satan's bondage. This is why it's so very important to stay very close to Jesus and be in His Word. No matter what sin Satan has us trapped in, whether drunkenness, theft, homosexuality, adultry, pornography, drugs, or any other sin, we have a Lord and Savior, Jesus, who will break those chains when we turn to Him. We need to proclaim Jesus' freeing power whenever someone is struggling with something and pray for them.   Jesus freed me from Satan's bondage and He will do the same for anyone and everyone who will let Him.
When we completely surrender our will to The Lord's and want to truly follow Him, the Holy Spirit comes in and lives in us and helps us to be more and more like Christ.  We are being hateful when we encourage ANY sin instead of praying for the people. When Jesus was on that cross, He said Father, forgive them for they know not what they do. So we also pray because chains from Satan need to be broken. Satan has so many people trapped in bondage of pornography, drugs, homosexuality, lesbianism as he did with me, alcoholism and any other sin. Jesus will free us when we turn to Him and let Him free us.

Who Loves the Homosexual More?


www.alphanewsdaily.com/Warning…

The Christian (any follower of Jesus Christ) is commanded to "love others" and treat them as we would want to be treated. According to the Bible, a person living in homosexual sin, among other sins, "will not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven" (1 Corinthians 6:9-11), and those who "approve of those who do such things" will be held just as guilty. In the Bible, we find Jesus Christ's first command was to "repent" (turn away from those things which are against God's Law) and then to trust in Him alone to save us from all our sins. He said He came to "save sinners" ... lots of them ... both Jew and Gentile ... any and all who will love, believe, and trust in Him.
The Bible warns until we acknowledge we are sinners and we desperately need a Savior (to save us from our sins ... past, present, and future) we won't be washed and cleansed and made new. . .


So, who loves the homosexual more? One who tells them it's okay to continue in a sin the Bible warns will keep them from the kingdom of God ... or someone who is willing to endure the anger, ridicule, and hate to warn them and to try to get them into Heaven as a neighbor and as a friend? In Proverbs 27:6 God says, "Faithful are the wounds of a friend ... but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful." Jesus Christ said more about death than He did about Heaven ... and the true believing Christian will try to get as many boys, girls, men, and women into the Kingdom of Heaven as possible.
If a Christian truly hated the homosexual (or anyone willfully sinning against God's law) they would simply keep silent and let them suffer in the dark. They would not be sharing the truth in a loving way, that Jesus wants to free us from our sins and from Satan's bondage. We wouldn't be following the lead of the Holy Spirit.
Yet, all believing Christians have had to come face-to-face with the fact we are all sinners and desperately need a 'Savior' to save us from our sins and from death.
Jesus Christ commands us to 'love our enemies' ... and you can't love someone without warning them when they are in great and grave danger.

It is false doctrine in direct opposition to God's Word that teaches God's "love" approves of or accepts homosexuality. The Bible clearly says homosexuality-lesbianism is sin.
Jesus said He came to save sinners ... Jesus suffered and died for all sinners. And we are all sinners. God hates sin because He endured the Cross to suffer and die for all our sins ... and because He knows the terrible consequences.

The Bible warns anybody who "defends" or "approves of" or "promotes" or "protects" this sin (or any sin) has openly declared their opposition to God and His Word by trying to block His loving and gracious efforts to reach out and save them.
That is why He pleads with all to repent (turn away) from doing those things that are against His laws, His statutes, and His rules ... and with tears of joy and with the open arms of a loving Father He will richly forgive and welcome all back who return to Him.

Please remember, our God is a forgiving God who will forgive any and all who have sinned against Him. Any sinner, including those who have walked the path of homosexuality, can be lovingly forgiven and washed clean through the blood of the Lamb, and then graciously clothed in His Righteousness.

The Lord has also led me to know that you cannot love a person and love their sin at the same time. God’s Word says love your neighbor and do unto others. The Lord showed me that if we are to love others, we share the truth in love and pray. I am not being led to support any sin but I am being led to share the truth in a loving way and pray for the people to come to Jesus. Once you give your life to Jesus, and are filled with the Holy Spirit, you ask yourself, how can I not share the truth and let people stay in the dark when I, myself was in that same place. I was trapped in bondage myself. And I wouldn't want anyone to keep me there, I would want the truth and be freed. And only Jesus frees when we come to Him. He loves us much and doesn't want us to stay in Satan's bondage. We are in a spiritual battle.

God loves us all but He hates sin. He calls us to love everyone as a person but hate their sin. We can't both love someone and love their sin at the same time. We are to pray for them and share the truth in love. We are all sinners and the best thing and most loving thing we can do is pray for the people.

◄ Romans 5:8 ►

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Jesus didn't die on the cross for us to keep sinning. He died on the cross to SAVE us from our sin. Jesus shows this other scripture:

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

********And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.**********

Notice the starred part. I was more than one of those but I was washed and cleansed by the blood of Christ. That's why we are to pray and not support sin. We can't be made new in Christ until we come to Him with a repentant heart. And there was a time I was loving my sin but I was breaking God's heart. Now that I surrendered my will to Jesus, I am being led by the Holy Spirit to pray for people and share the truth in love. God wants us to come to Him as we are but He's not going to keep us where we are. We will become more and more like Christ. But we have to be willing to let Him.


John 2:15, "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him." You see, unsaved people have been TRICKED by the Devil that Jesus taught Christians to love the world. No He didn't! Psalm 97:10 reads "Ye that love the LORD, hate evil..." We are to love people; but hate the evil world. We are to love witches; but hate their witchcraft. We are to love homosexuals; but hate their homosexuality. We are to love feminist women; but hate their rebellion against authority. We are to love abortionists; but hate their murder. We are to love thieves; but hate their theft. We are to love sinners; but hate their sin. If people choose to live in rebellion against God by rejecting Christ as Saviour, rejecting the Bible, rejecting decency, and rejecting God's righteousness; then we are obligated to take a stand for God, for Christ, for the Bible, for decency, and for righteousness! If that makes us "unloving" in the world's eyes, then so be it. If we don't take a stand in our community, then Satan will prevail. God doesn't expect us to do more than we can, but He certainly expects us to do something. What are you doing to promote the Gospel of Christ, defend the faith, and fight the wickedness of our day?

www.jesus-is-savior.com/Basics…

Homosexuality is not the only sin mentioned in 1 Corinthians 6:9–10.

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

It’s not the only sin mentioned, but it is different from all the rest, at least right now. At this moment in history, contrary to the other sins listed here, homosexuality is celebrated by our larger society with pioneering excitement. It’s seen as a good thing, as the new hallmark of progress.

To be sure, the masses increasingly make no bones about sin in general. Innumerable people are idolaters, not to mention those who are sexually immoral, or who commit adultery, or who steal and are greedy and get wasted and revile neighbors and swindle others. It happens all the time. And each of these unrepentant sins are the same in the sense of God’s judgment. They all deserve his wrath. And we’re constantly reminded that “such were some of you” (1 Corinthians 6:11). You in the church.

Concerning Popular Opinion

But as far as I know, none of those sins is applauded so aggressively by whole groups of people who advocate for their normalcy. Sexual immorality is no longer the tip of the spear for the progressive push. Adultery is still frowned upon by many. Accusations of greed will still smear a candidate’s political campaign. Thievery is still not openly embraced, and there are no official initiatives saying it’s okay to go take things that don’t belong to you. There’s no such thing as a drunk agenda yet. Most aren’t proud to choose a beverage over stability, and there aren’t any petitions that the government should abolish the driving restrictions of inebriated individuals. Reviling others still isn’t seen as the best way to win friends and influence people. Swindling, especially on a corporate level, usually gets someone thrown into jail. In fact, the infrastructure of the American economy depends upon, in some measure, our shared disdain for conniving scammers.

Perhaps excepting fornication, these sins are still seen in a pretty negative light. But not homosexual practice, not by those who are now speaking loudest and holding positions of prominence. According to the emerging consensus, homosexuality is different.

What to Be Against

As Christians, we believe with deepest sincerity that the embrace of homosexual practice, along with other sins, keeps people out of the kingdom of God. And if our society celebrates it, we can’t both be caring and not say anything. Too much is at stake. This means it is an oversimplification to say that Christians — or conservative evangelicals — are simply against homosexuality. We are against any sin that restrains people from everlasting joy in God, and homosexual practice just gets all the press because, at this cultural moment, it’s the main sin that is so freshly endorsed in our context by the powers that be. Let’s hope that if there’s some new cultural agenda promoting thievery — one that says it’s now our right to take whatever we want from others by whatever means — that Christians will speak out against it. The issue is sin. That’s what we’re against. And that’s what should make our voice so unique when we speak into this debate.

Some would like to see this whole issue of homosexuality divided into two camps: those who celebrate it and those who hate it. Both of these groups exist in our society. There are the growing numbers, under great societal pressure, who praise homosexuality. We might call them the left. And there are people who hate homosexuality, with the most bigoted rationale and apart from any Christian concern. We might call them the right.

Those Glorious Words

The current debate is plagued by this binary lens. Those on the left try to lump everyone who disagrees with them into that right side. If you don’t support, you hate. Meanwhile, those on the right see compromise and spinelessness in anyone who doesn’t get red-faced and militant. If you don’t hate, you support.

But true followers of Christ will walk neither path. We have something to say that no one else is saying, or can say.

Distancing ourselves from both the left and the right, we don’t celebrate homosexual practice, we acknowledge God’s clear revealed word that it is sin; and we don’t hate those who embrace homosexuality, we love them enough to not just collapse under the societal pressure. We speak the truth in love into this confusion, saying, simultaneously, “That’s wrong” and “I love you.” We’re not the left; we say, this is wrong. And we’re not the right; we say, you’re loved. We speak good news, with those sweetest, deepest, most glorious words of the cross — the same words that God spoke us — “You’re wrong, and you’re loved.”

God tells us we’re wrong, that the wages of sin is death, that unrepentant rebellion means judgment, that our rescue required the cursed death of his Son (Romans 3:23; John 3:36; Galatians 3:13). And God tells us we’re loved, that even while we were sinners, Jesus died for us, that while we were unrighteous, Jesus suffered in our place, that though we were destined for wrath, Jesus welcomes us into glory (Romans 5:8; 1 Peter 3:18; Ephesians 2:1–7).

Where the Gospel Shines

You’re wrong and you’re loved — that’s the unique voice of the Christian. That’s what we say, speaking from our own experience, as Tim Keller so well puts it, “we’re far worse than we ever imagined, and far more loved than we could ever dream.”

That’s our message in this debate, when society’s elites despise us, when pop songs vilify us, when no one else has the resources to say anything outside of two extremes, we have this incomparable opportunity to let the gospel shine, to reach out in grace: you’re wrong and you’re loved. We get to say this.

Amazing testimony of being freed from sexual sin by power of the blood of Christ:







I am being strongly led by The Holy Spirit to share these and I wanted to put these videos here and share how one of the many ways I was deceived and in bondage until Jesus freed me last year. I love how this 23 minute video shares all these things about God's love and His truth as someone who also struggled with this before I gave my life to Christ last year. This woman's testimony is so encouraging, inspirational and powerful. I'm also strongly led by The Holy Spirit to share this truth in love. I am praying for everyone to come to Jesus. This is not just for the LGBT community but for everyone since we are all in spiritual battle and until we give our lives to Jesus, we are in bondage by Satan. That's what the devil does because he doesn't want us to be with God. He lies and deceives and puts confusion and perversions in people's minds. I love this testimony from this woman and especially after the SCOTUS did what they did this past June, I am sharing this truth in love and I'm praying.

Freed from bondage, Alive in Christ!

I'm so heartbroken for the thousands and thousands of people trapped in bondage and after Satan's attack back on June 2015. I wanted to share these other videos, as I also had Satan put this stuff in my mind for years.

"The Bible clearly states that homosexuality is unnatural, immoral, and unhealthy. Everyone knows that a man who thinks he is a woman has (what Tim Wildmon calls) a mental disorder (but really Satan puts stuff in our minds), not to mention a spiritual one."

Bendy and the Ink Machine (often abbreviated to BATIM) is an episodic survival horror video game developed and published by Kindly Beast, under the name of the game's fictional animation studio, Joey Drew Studios Inc. (TheMeatly Games, Ltd. until August 1st, 2018).[1][2] The game takes place in 1966 and follows Henry, a retired animator who returns to his old studio upon an invitation from his old friend Joey Drew and discovers a nightmare of cartoon characters seemingly created by the titular Ink Machine.

The game's first chapter was released for LinuxmacOS and Microsoft Windows via Game Jolt on February 10, 2017, with a second chapter bundled with a remastered version of the first following on April 18, 2017. After the game succeeded in its Steam Greenlight campaign on February 28, 2017,[3] both available chapters were released onto Steam on April 27, 2017. The third chapter was released on September 28, 2017 and the fourth chapter was released on April 30, 2018, after a short delay. Mike Mood, the game's programmer, describes the game as an "accidental success".[4]

Bendy and the Ink Machine was announced to be published by Rooster Teeth Games for PlayStation 4 and Xbox Oneon October 26, 2018 after the fifth and final chapter is completed and released,[5] but was delayed to be released on those consoles at the same time as a Nintendo Switch port on November 20, 2018

Gameplay[edit]

Bendy and the Ink Machine is a survival horror game that uses a mixture of puzzle solving, environment exploration and combat to aid Henry on his journey through Joey Drew Studios, where he was formerly employed as an animator. Players explore through a first-person view and have limited physical actions such as running and jumping. Different items can be collected, some of which are required to perform various tasks before proceeding. Cans of bacon soup, a reference to the game's creator TheMeatly and his partner Mike Mood, can also be collected for both achievements and to restore Henry's health if he is injured.

Combat is primarily focused around a variety of different weapons, such as an axe, a pipe, a plunger, a wrench, a syringe, and an M1921 Thompson Submachine Gun with unlimited ammunition. In-game enemies all have different strength levels and resilience to damage, forcing players to be tactical about keeping out of reach and striking when necessary. Henry can retreat inside a Little Miracle Station whenever one is nearby in order to recover or remain obscure. If he takes too much damage, he can escape from the ink that consumes him and respawn at one of the numerous statues of Bendy that act as checkpoints. Cardboard cutouts of Bendy (known as Bendy cutouts) will also appear around the character acting as jumpscare attempts. When the main enemy, "Bendy", catches Henry, "Bendy" will instantly kill him.

In addition, players can find numerous audio logs throughout the studio that give more story details about the fate of the studio and its employees, similar to the systems used in games such as BioShock. Some of these logs can be missed and require further exploration to uncover the secret areas they often reside in.

Chapters[edit]Chapter One: Moving Pictures[edit]

Henry, a retired animator, returns to his old animation studio, Joey Drew Studios, after receiving an invitation from his old friend and former employer, Joey Drew, to be shown something important. Having not been to the studio in thirty years, Henry finds the place seemingly abandoned. He eventually discovers the titular Ink Machine after locating two battery cells needed to power the generator that lifts it out from underneath and decides to turn it on after concluding it is what Joey wanted to show him. During the repair attempts, Henry uncovers hints from old tape recordings from two repair workers, Wally Franks and Thomas Connor, which imply that Joey was taking part in bizarre occult practices and was not taking care of the ink machine properly as Connor remarks about the pipes constantly bursting. Henry suddenly encounters the gruesome discovery of a corpse in the shape of Boris the Wolf, one of the studio's characters.[6]

After completing the necessary steps to fix the Ink Machine (which requires finding six objects needed to restore the ink pressure: a wrench, a Bendy doll, a record, a book, an inkwell, and a gear), he finds the path to the machine boarded up. Henry is then suddenly attacked by a humanoid, skeletal ink monster who sports the same name of the studio's most popular mascot, Bendy. Henry attempts to flee from "Bendy" as the studio starts to flood with ink and just before he reaches the exit, the floor collapses underneath him, sending him into a room below. After draining out the ink, using an axe to clear the path, and approaching a pentagram drawn on the floor, Henry is racked with a vision of the Ink Machine, a wheelchair, and "Bendy" before he passes out.

Chapter Two: The Old Song[edit]

After waking up on a mass of strange random shapes in a circle (as of the Chapter 4 update), Henry explores the studio's music department and infirmary, encountering hostile inky monsters called Searchers. Henry searches for three switches needed to open a gate and finds several more tape recordings of how the studio fared since his departure, including one by Sammy Lawrence, the musical director for the studio, who seemingly started to worship Bendy as a deity following the ink machine's installment, which the ink machine itself he didn't appeal to. Another tape recording from Norman Polk, the studio projectionist, mentions how Sammy continually disrupted daily recording sessions by attempting to enter a custom built sanctuary. The chapter also introduces Susie Campbell, a voice actress, who discusses her casting as Alice Angel, a new character in the studio.

While attempting to disable the ink flood blocking Sammy's office door, Henry encounters Jack Fain, the studio's lyricist, now a non-hostile Searcher, and has to kill him with a lift control to retrieve a valve handle. He searches for a key needed to unlock a door and plays Sammy's favorite song to open the door to another valve. After activating the pump switch in Sammy's office to drain the flooded stairwell of the music department blocking the exit, Henry is then knocked out from behind by the now-insane Sammy with a dustpan. Upon waking up, he realizes that Sammy's whole body has been covered with ink and now wears an aged Bendy mask over his face. Hoping that Bendy, his lord, will restore his humanity, Sammy plots to sacrifice Henry to him. However, Sammy is presumably killed by "Bendy" off-screen after he arrives. Henry escapes from "Bendy", only to encounter a living version of Boris.

Chapter Three: Rise and Fall[edit]

Henry, after awakening in a safe house, works with Boris to find a way out of the studio. They find themselves in Heavenly Toys, the studio's toy manufacturing department. Briefly separated from Boris, Henry encounters a psychotic, aggressive ink creature who sports the same name of the cartoon character Alice Angel, implied that it is presumably a transformed Susie, as audio recordings reveal she was unceremoniously replaced as Alice's voice actress with Allison Pendle. Another audio recording from Joey Drew implies he was trying to motivate his employees, promoting the idea behind the power of belief. Henry finds two pathways: the Path of the Demon and the Path of the Angel, and must choose which path to take. After entering one path, the other closes permanently. Soon after reuniting with Boris, Henry runs into a hostile and deformed living member of the studio's Butcher Gang characters.

They reach "Alice's" lair on Level 9. There, Henry finds out that "Alice" has been harvesting the body parts of Boris clones and other toons, in order to improve her deformed appearance. "Alice" offers Henry his freedom in exchange for a few errands and offers him tools to assist him. While performing these tasks, Henry encounters the Projectionist, who is a transformed Norman Polk. When every task is complete, Henry and Boris are allowed to ascend in an elevator to escape, but "Alice" proclaims she wants to use Boris to fix herself, and makes the elevator plummet down and crash to Level S. As Boris tries to awake Henry, he is suddenly pulled away by "Alice".

Chapter Four: Colossal Wonders[edit]

Henry awakens by the remains of the crashed elevator and begins searching for Boris. He journeys through the studio's archives, beginning to get hallucinations, and discovers a large group of harmless ink monsters called the Lost Ones (who are either transformed studio employees or simply just another type of ink creature), some imprisoned in cages. In the archives is a recording from Susie, who states that Joey said he had an 'opportunity' for her, furthering the possibility that she is "Alice".

After navigating through the vents of the archives with the help of a flashlight (briefly encountering "Bendy" again), Henry then finds himself in a large underground warehouse that houses prototypes for a Bendy theme park, "Bendy Land". Created by park designer Bertrum Piedmont, more audio logs imply that Joey intended to take the credit for the park's creation, leading Bertrum to become frustrated with the studio owner. Henry begins restoring power to the warehouse to access the haunted house, encountering a monstrous version of Piedmont encased within an amusement attraction, and is forced to kill him. He also encounters the Projectionist again, Henry fleeing into a Little Miracle Station safe spot. The Projectionist is attacked and killed by "Bendy", who drags his body away.

Henry ventures through the haunted house and is met by Boris, now a large hulking brute. In a boss battle, Henry slays Boris, enraging "Alice". She tries to kill him herself, only to be run through from behind and killed by a second Alice Angel named Allison Angel, accompanied by a mechanized clone of Boris named Tom.

Chapter Five: The Last Reel[edit]

The production trailer for this chapter was released on June 4, 2018. The reveal trailer was released on August 31, 2018. The chapter's title was revealed during a video by theMeatly on June 12, which was also when it was revealed that Chapter 5 was set for release in October. The confirmed release date for Chapter Five and the console release is October 26, 2018. theMeatly also stated that Chapter Five started production when Chapter Four was in production. The chapter will most likely focus on a battle involving Henry, Allison Angel, Tom, "Bendy", and the Lost Ones, as well as revealing how most of the events of the game happened.[7]

Characters[edit]

The playable character and protagonist is Henry (theMeatly), a former animator of Joey Drew Studios, who returns to the studio thirty years after resigning from the company. The game is played through a first-person narrative, though Henry's physical appearance has yet to be seen.

Joey Drew (David Eddings), the CEO of the studio, invites Henry back to the studio via a letter. He introduced the Ink Machine to the studio, exhibiting peculiar behavior around it. Joey is described as a "man of ideas, but nothing else" by Henry. Other characters view him as an unethical employer and perfectionist, uncaring towards the working conditions of his colleagues. Though acting like an eccentric dreamer, Chapter 4 proves this is just a ruse via a recording, Joey is actually portrayed as a cynical, greedy individual drawing people in with his promise of dreams so he could break them. TheMeatly described Joey's greatest and worst flaw as his "unending desire to make the impossible possible."[8]

Other members of the studio's staff are introduced via audio recordings. These include Wally Franks (theMeatly), the studio janitor; Thomas Connor (Mike Mood), a repairman; Sammy Lawrence (Aaron Landon), the musical director, who serves as an antagonist in Chapter 2, worshipping Bendy as a deity; Jack Fain (Bookpast), a lyricist, turned into a "swollen" Searcher in the remastered Chapter 2; projector operator Norman Polk (theMeatly), transformed into a monster called the Projectionist, appearing in Chapters 3 and 4,[9] a character that was almost left out of the final version of the third chapter due to time restraints;[10] accountant Grant Cohen (Will Ryan); Shawn Flynn (Seán McLoughlin), an Irish toy designer; Bertrum Piedmont (Joe J. Thomas), a theme park architect, who appears as a boss in Chapter 4;[11] engineer Lacie Benton (Lani Minella); and the voice actresses of the character Alice Angel, Susie Campbell (Alanna Linayre), and her replacement Allison Pendle (Lauren Synger).

Susie plays a major antagonistic role in Chapters 3 and 4, appearing as a malevolent, deformed version of Alice Angel. Through audio recordings, Susie is revealed to have been unceremoniously replaced with Allison as Alice's voice actress, causing her to blame Joey for deceiving her.[12] Susie kills numerous cartoon characters and harvests their innards to become a "perfect" incarnation of herself, and specifically targets Boris the Wolf. Allison appears in Chapter 4 as another version of Alice, referred to as "Allison Angel".

Throughout the game, Henry encounters numerous staff members, transformed into monsters made from ink, or resembling the studio's animated characters. A number of these appear in Chapter 4, referred to as the "Lost Ones", but show no hostility towards the player. The stock enemy in the game are the "Searchers", though other variants appear in boss battles.

The studio has created several in-universe cartoon characters who starred in silent animated shorts. The titular character is Bendy the Dancing Demon, the studio mascot, who appears as a recurring antagonist towards Henry throughout the game. Bendy's name was in fact a typo, created when the 3D modeling program, Blender, saved the character's model with the name.

Boris the Wolf appears as several individual characters in the game. In Chapter 2, the player meets a benevolent version of Boris, who accompanies Henry throughout Chapter 3. Several other copies of Boris are found dead in the first and third chapters, used by Susie to achieve her "perfection". She captures Boris at the end of the third chapter, reintroducing him in a new, monstrous and aggressive form in Chapter 4, forcing the player to battle him in a boss battle. Another mechanized Boris appears at the end of Chapter 4, accompanying Allison. The aforementioned Alice Angel debuts in Chapter 2, who theMeatly describes as "quite the gal".[13] Chapter 3 introduced the Butcher Gang, a trio of characters who act as antagonists to Bendy in his cartoon shorts - Charley; Barley; and Edgar, a spider. They appear as antagonists in Chapters 3 and 4 as mutilated versions of themselves, named "Piper", "Fisher" and "Striker", respectively.

Official videos for a series of animated shorts based on Bendy and the Ink Machine have been released from theMeatly's YouTube channel, with animation done by animator Timethehobo. The first animated short, Tombstone Picnic, was released as part of the Chapter Three reveal trailer on August 11, 2017.[14] The second short, Haunted Hijinx, was uploaded on October 31, 2017, to celebrate Halloween.[15] The third short, Snow Sillies, was uploaded on December 24, 2017, in celebration of the holiday season.

A Halloween crossover mod, Hello Bendy, was released for the game on October 27, 2017, for a limited time, featuring the Hello Neighbor antagonist who takes the role as Bendy in all previous three chapters and even Sammy Lawrence for Chapter 2.[16] The mod's menu features the advertisement of pre-ordering the game Hello Neighbor. The mod expired by the end of October.

Co-creator Mike Mood has talked about wanting to do a crossover with Cuphead, a popular run and gun platformer that follows the same rubber hose animationart style as Bendy and the Ink Machine.[17]

Bendy in Nightmare Run![edit]

A mobile spin-off, titled Bendy in Nightmare Run!, was announced on January 26, 2018 and was released on Android and iOS on August 15, 2018. [18][19]Developed by Karman Interactive in partnership with Joey Drew Studios Inc. and PhatMojo, the game introduces the cartoon Bendy and his co-stars in an endless running-style game, featuring four levels with a different "boss" cartoon monster, as well as collectable items and power-ups, including Briar Label Bacon Soup cans that act as currency to buy abilities and upgrades, and possible future updates.
