Honor is Mandatory

Pastor Henry Madava


Intro to Shamim’s ‘Honor is Mandatory’

Shamim Masih writes about Biblical Honor. The tone of the post is in relation to the Glory Filled Pakistan Christian Leadership Conference held in Islamabad Pakistan July 14-18. Shamim in true Pakistani style called the meetings the “National Church leadership Conference”. The felicitator for the conference was Pastor Henry Madava and the organizations sponsoring the Christian event was Christ For All Cities (CFAC). The CFAC is an outreach of Victory Christian Church located in Kiev, Ukraine (I had to use Google Translate on the Church’s location page for it is in Ukrainian). Here is an excerpt from Victory Christian Church’s “Wellcome” page that gives you a feel for the Church and its Pastor Henry Madava:

Victory Christian church is a place where every person can hear the message of the Word of God, receive Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and learn to build true relationships with Lord and other people, find peace with oneself and also to fulfill his destiny.

Victory Christian church is a place for the whole family where by getting know God`s principles relationships between spouses, between children and parents are been healed, where close friends become even closer. Everyone here has an opportunity to develop oneself, grow spiritually, to spend his time actively and fruitfully. Our church is open for everybody.

Henry Madava is the founder and senior pastor of the Christian Victory Church network and the founder of the international ministry Christ for All Cities.

Henry Madava was born in Zimbabwe. He arrived in the Soviet Union in 1986. After graduating from the Kiev Institute of Civil Aviation, he founded the Victory Church in December 1992.

The mission of Henry Madava is to help people to find salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and to become integral to live the full-fledged life in society. Pastor Henry works on God’s field by teaching and preaching God’s truth not only in Ukraine but all over the world. Consistent and clear explanation of the Word of God makes his teachings accessible to everyone.

Pastor Henry Madava is the well-known preacher and speaker at many conferences. He has preached the Word of God in more than 40 countries worldwide. As one of the prominent Christian leaders in Ukraine, Henry Madava is eager to see the awakening that would cover the entire Ukraine and the whole world. A lot of Victory Churches have already been founded in Ukraine and abroad.

As an evangelist, Henry Madava holds Festivals of Jesus in different parts of the world every year. These are evangelistic healing meetings where … (Wellcome to Victory Christian Church!)

I felt compelled into Victory Christian Church because it is so similar in name to the Church I attend in Tulsa OK (Victory Christian Center). In the brief reading on CFAC and Brother Henry Madava it appears to me he is an awesome preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Here is a Vimeo video sharing the promotional Pakistan conference that teaches Christian Pastors and Preachers to be understand a Glory Filled life:

(I looked up the link for the video which was provided but other than social sharing Vimeo denied direct access. It could be because I live in the USA, Pastor Madava’s Church in Ukraine, access was limited to connections with Pakistan or all of the above.)

Frankly I am amazed, gratified and blessed such a conferences was allowed to take place in Sunni-Islam dominated Pakistan. This is a nation in which Sharia Blasphemy Laws are used as a tool to persecute devout and nominal Pakistani-Christians all alike. Here is a “Glory Filled” conference info excerpted from the first day of the conference:

The purpose of Glory Filled conferences is to equip pastors and leaders with the knowledge about the glory and power of God and to impart them with the anointing and fire of the Holy Spirit to spread the Gospel in their cities, countries, and nations.

A lot of work has been done to make this vision happen. The Pakistani national conference committee has been working hard for the last six months to organize this big event together with the ministers from the Christ for All Cities. The largest venue in the city—Jinnah Convention Center—was booked in advance to hold this mega event. Its nominal capacity is 2200 people, and it can be extended by placing additional chairs. Special permissions were secured from different governmental authorities to hold this conference. Big promotion work was done in different cities of Pakistan to attract pastors and ministers to participate in the event. More than 500 pastors and ministers came to Islamabad from other cities, and the total number of registered people exceeded 3500. The majority of them came from the region of Islamabad and RawalPindi, the twin cities located in the beautiful mountain region in the north-east of Pakistan. The Christ for All Cities Ministries helped some of them to get to the convention center by providing 30 buses and vans that made multiple trips to distant areas of Islamabad and RawalPindi to pick up people there. In total, about 1500 people could have a possibility to use these buses and vans to come to the event.

Pastor Henry preached from the Gospel of Matthew 16:13-16.Jesus asked His disciples, saying “Who do men say Me to be?” Simon Peter answered and said “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Then Jesus answered and said to him “You are blessed, Simon, son of Jonah, for flesh and blood did not reveal it to you, but My Father in Heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” … (Bold Text Mine – Glory Filled Pakistan: Day 1; Event: Glory Filled Pakistan Christian Leadership Conference; CFAC; 7/14/15)

People have been jailed and/or killed for standing for the basic Christian tenet of faith that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God. Islam specifically condemns this belief hence the belief is blasphemy in Islam.

I am presuming Shamim attending all or part of the Glory Filled Pakistan Leadership Conference. The subject of Christian honor has touched Shamim’s heart enough to share it with me and thus I share it with you.

Honor is Mandatory

By Shamim Masih

Sent: 8/2/2015 8:04 AM

ISLAMABAD: When it comes to being a follower of Christ, honor is a fact and way of life. Honor is a lifestyle of stopping to embrace the people and places that surround your life. Yet, so often in ministry, honor sometimes seems elusive. Speaking at the National Church leadership Conference, Pastor Henry Madava advised to bring unity among the body of the Christ. He said, being united doesn’t mean, to bring them all under one umbrella, we can stay united in different platforms.

Speaking at the National Church Leadership Conference, “Glory Filled Pakistan” international speaker Pastor Henry Madava said, as a pastors and ministry leaders, the truth is, we are called to show honor to all those around us. Sometimes, it’s blessing for us because we are giving what we have never received ourselves. Honor means, “To hold in high esteem, to regard with great respect, to revere”. Develop a culture of honor, he added.

Many religious leaders around want to be honored but have yet to be model that before their congregation. The truth is, honor has to be cultivated, and honor doesn’t happen by accident but is the result of intentionally living out a vision to lift up those around us. It happens as the result of an intentional pastor or leader that decides to sow the seeds of honor in how they serve our ministries to how they treat their ministers. The honor level in your church is a direct reflection of the level of honor we have modeled as pastors.

Honor is mandatory and Bible has lot to say on the subject of honor. In fact, the Bible calls us to live a life style of honor. “Render therefore to all their due………honors to whom honors.” Romans 13:7 (NKJV) and “Honor all people…….” 1-Peter 2:17 (NKJV)

We are called to live a lifestyle of honoring people, of highly regarding those around us. Often, as pastors, we take pride in being Word passed, but when it comes to our cultivating a culture of honor, have we embraced the Word’s call?

Be Blessed,

Shamim Masih

This is Why we Call the Gay Lobby Fascist!

Sodom_and_Gomorrah by John Martin

Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah

I have a dream today that gay people and lesbians will have a vested and inalienable right to universal marriage equality backed by the power of law. Gay marriage is not only a civil right to be enacted by governments, but it is a fundamental human right bestowed by the almighty hands of God.” (Bold Text Editor – Mark Charles Hardie quoted)


Now that is a quote of Mark Charles Hardie considering the very Words of God contradict that homosexual activist thought:


22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. 23 Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion.


24 ‘Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. 25 For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants. 26 You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you 27 (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled), 28 lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you. 29 For whoever commits any of these abominations, the persons who commit them shall be cut off from among their people. (Lev. 18: 22-29 NKJV)


Thank God we longer live under the Old Covenant for the penalty for disobeying God then was physical death by execution. Thank God we live under the New Covenant in which the sacrificial Blood of Jesus delivers humanity from the authority of Satan’s domain and transfers them to the Kingdom of God’s dear Son Jesus Christ. Sins are forgive in Christ and the penalty of violating the Old Covenant are remitted in Christ. This means unrepentant to the end humans are in Second Death (See Also HERE) danger of eternal damnation separated from the mercies, glory, presence and benefits of God’s Kingdom. ONLY believing in the Redemptive/Resurrection work of Jesus Christ saves any human from the Second Death.


AND YET the mercy and Grace discovered in the New Testament Word of God still testifies that homosexuality is an unacceptable abominable lifestyle.


4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly;6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; 7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)— 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries, 11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord. (2 Peter 2: 4-11 NKJV)


18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,


24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;


32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1: 18, 24-28, 32 NKJV; But you should read the entire Romans chapter one-NKJV)

This is Why we Call the Gay Lobby Fascist!

By Matt Barber

March 10, 2015


While they always disguise it behind the euphemistic language of “tolerance,” “equality” and “social justice,” on occasion the homofascist left will admit to its designs on fascism. There are some who doubt those of us who have long warned that many homosexualists intend to compel, through any means possible (up to and including physical force), Christians and other dissenters to fully surrender to their radical homosexual activist agenda.


Mark Charles Hardie, a Huffington post columnist and 2016 candidate for the California Senate, is helping to make our point. In a February 25 column headlined, “Gay People Are Gods: Protecting LGBT Communities Is a Divine Right,” Hardie goes full Rainbow Shirt. Under the pretext of “minimizing troubling incidents of anti-gay violence,” he shares that he has submitted “an innovative proposal” to the California State Senate to create “LGBT Squads” to enforce the “gay” agenda.


“My proposal calls for the creation of ‘California LGBT Police Departments’ throughout the Golden State,” he writes. “These police departments, funded by the state, would be staffed exclusively by gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender police officers.”

So much for ending “discrimination” based on “sexual orientation.” Heterosexuals need not apply. In order to earn your pink, taxpayer-funded jackboots in this lavender brute squad, you must possess an aberrant sexual appetite for members of the same sex.


Hardie then assumes the persona of Martin Luther King Jr.’s evil twin.

“I have a dream today that gay people and lesbians will have a vested and inalienable right to universal marriage equality backed by the power of law. Gay marriage is not only a civil right to be enacted by governments, but it is a fundamental human right bestowed by the almighty hands of God.”


Wow. Sodomy-based “marriage,” something that the very almighty God to whom Hardie refers has expressly called “an abomination,” is now, somehow, a “fundamental human right,” which He has “bestowed.”


The cray cray continues: “I am inspired with a new dream — not only an aspiration for LGBT equality — but a dream of gay empowerment. For without power there can be no true security or freedom of choice. I now understand that LGBT communities worldwide must be empowered with the weapons to fight for justice.”


To be clear, Hardie, a former staff attorney for CA governor Pete Wilson and “public affairs intern” for Senator Barbara Boxer, is not calling for metaphorical “weapons” to enforce the “gay” agenda. He means weapons weapons. You know… guns.

“Today, in a major step towards fulfilling this lofty dream of social justice, I submitted an innovative proposal to the offices of California State Senator Mark Leno and California Assembly Member David Chiu,” he continues. According to Hardie, in order to enforce his homofascist version of “social justice,” armed “LGBT squads” are “vital.” “[I]t is also vital for LGBT communities to wield police power backed by the force of law. In other words, we must not only demand ‘gay rights,’ but we must also demand ‘gay power.’”



Hardie concludes by dedicating his column to “the memory of Matthew Shepard.” Shepard has become a bit of a mythological figure in our culture. He is, ironically, the poster child for “anti-gay hate crimes.” I say ironically because, while the mainstream media perpetuated the myth that Matthew Shepard was murdered as a result of “homophobia” during the commission of an “anti-gay hate crime,” it has now been revealed that, in fact, Shepard was a young, HIV positive crystal meth addict who was in a homosexual relationship with two of his drug dealers. These fellow “gay” druggies brutally (and tragically) murdered him during a drug deal gone bad. They are both serving life sentences for their crimes. (Bold Text Editor’s)


And so here we are. A California senate proposal for armed “LGBT squads” built upon the phantasmic foundation of the world’s most famous “anti-gay violence” myth.


What could possibly go wrong?

Genesis-Creation and Redemption

Creator of Heavens and Earth

John R. Houk

© September 15, 2013


If you visited my blogs in the past you are aware that I am a Christian Right kind of guy. What the Bible says is what I believe. Now saying that I am going to state something that will make some disagreeable and others agreeable. I am not a the-earth-was-created-6000-years-ago kind of guy.


During the period of 1650 to 1654 Protestant Bishop James Ussher published his studies of the age of the Earth as chronicled literally in the Bible. His published conclusion was that God created the Earth in 4004 BC (Before Christ). Ussher’s scholarship based on the literal time data derived from the Bible is actually quite brilliant.


I however, do not believe time periods in the Bible – or at least in the Old Testament – are not literal according to material linear time. You see I do believe God made Creation ex nihilo by speaking His handiwork into existence. BUT I believe God’s twinkling of the eye is not something that can be measured accurately in human corporeal understanding. The Eternal dimension of God’s dwelling is immeasurable.


The Genesis Creation epic God has allowed us to see in His Word, I believe, is not in the realm of 24 hour human understanding.


8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us,[a] not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3: 8-9 NKJV)


This tells me that human linear time does not measure up to God’s plan as it pertains to human reasoning. And the one day/thousand years comparison then should not be taken literally either. Although I don’t think it is impossible for God Almighty to make creation in 24 hour periods; however that which humans can measure seems to indicate that God did not take that path. So I am not going to commit myself to believing creation happened in terms of thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands or millions of years or whatever human concept of time.


Now granted the context of 2 Peter 3: 8-9 is that God is not slack in completing the Redemption plan of humanity. The first instalment of Redemption is that the Blood of Christ Redeems the human spirit by changing the old man corrupted by Adam’s Fall is created anew becoming a new person in Christ Jesus – behold old things have passed away and our human spirit is a new creation. Jesus Christ is coming back to Redeem humanity fully. Not just the human spirit but soul and body as well. The context in the Second Epistle of Peter is the coming Full Redemption of humanity; nevertheless it is an indication that our God who lives outside of time made his Creation according to an Eternal existence which in the material world could be measured in any number of ways that the Word of God tries to simplify for human comprehension.


Now I have quite probably taken too long to get to the point. I just read an article on WND which is a promotion of a movie production that is entitled “Genesis 3D”. The movie is the Creationism view is valid because it is the Word of God and Evolution is fallacious because it is thought of a man’s theory; viz., Charles Darwin.



I am a Creationist except for that 6000 year human measured chronology thing. Evolutionism is a theory that STILL is not a proven fact. The only verifiable data on Evolution is that changing environment can change the genetics of an organism as observed in short termed experimental evidence. Using short term evidence for long term conclusions is a stretch in which science utilizes predictions and conjectural constructs for a preconceived conclusion.


I will stick with the Word of God which to those who Believe by Faith know is Truth.


1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.


3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. (Hebrews 11: 1-3 NKJV)


By “faith” God framed existence ex nihilo by His Spoken Word. Human theory cannot definitively paint a picture of existence’s beginnings when that theory is outside of the Word of God. AND as much as the proponents of science proclaims the theory is the truth, science has NEVER found the observable evidence that makes a validating connection to Evolutionary theory.


Here is the Truth as disseminated by the Word of God:


1 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was[a] on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.


3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.


6 Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” 7 Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.


9 Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.


11 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 13 So the evening and the morning were the third day.


14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. 17 God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.


20 Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.


24 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.


26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all[b] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”


29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.


2 1 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.


4 This is the history[a] of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5 before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground; 6 but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.


7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. (Genesis 1; 2: 1-7 NKJV)

You Can Beat Any Temptation!


By Rick Renner

Sent: 8/22/2013 3:07 AM

Sparkling Gems from Rick Renner Email List



There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
— 1 Corinthians 10:13


Everyone has to deal with temptations at one time or another, so you don’t need to feel embarrassed if you’re facing a particular temptation right now. But at the same time, you don’t have to succumb to temptation, because it is something you can overcome! All temptations can be beaten! You just have to make up your mind that you’re going to be the conqueror and not the conquered!

You may not have thought of it before, but the devil tries to lure you into sin by using your mind and emotions. He injects thoughts into your mind and emotions that act as stimulants to get you all stirred up in a certain area of your life. At that moment, you are consciously aware that you can let the temptation pass you by – or you can allow those thoughts to fester in your mind and take root in your emotions until they become a major stronghold in your mind to battle and conquer. By refusing to accept the thoughts in the first place, you can avoid the whole struggle!

It’s similar to a sexual temptation. You can choose to turn and look the other way, or you can dwell on that temptation until it fills your mind and imagination. If you choose to meditate on the thought that the devil is trying to put into your head, it won’t be too long until the devil is waging a full-scale battle in your mind! If you don’t put on the brakes and stop those thoughts, the devil will conquer you. That’s why it’s so important that you learn how to control your thinking. If you can keep your mind under the control of the Holy Spirit, you will make it almost impossible for the devil to defeat you in any realm of your life.

The devil is a master when it comes to mind manipulation. He knows that if he can get you to spend a little time meditating on something wrong, he can eventually entice you to do it! If the devil was persuasive enough to deceive brilliant, mighty, powerful angels, how much more easily can he deceive people who live in a far-from-perfect environment and wrestle daily with their own imperfections! The emotional makeup of human beings makes them even more susceptible to the devil’s masterful skills of lying, deception, and manipulation.

Satan watches for the right timing. He comes along at an opportune moment. He waits until you’re tired, weary, or exasperated. Perhaps you woke up in a bad mood; someone gave you a “look” you didn’t like; or you just started off your day on the wrong foot. Then suddenly he strikes you with a thought – something that takes you totally by surprise when your guard is down!

When negative thoughts begin to deluge your mind, you need to know that it is Satan setting a trap in front of you. He is trying to ensnare you so he can cripple and devastate both you and the people you love. He’s trying to get you to bite the bait so he can set the hook! But you don’t have to fall into this trap anymore! If you really want out of this type of emotional quandary, there is a way out.

First Corinthians 10:13 promises, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”

The word “temptation” is the Greek word peirasmos, and it may refer to any outside source that appeals to a weakness in your flesh. That appeal pulls you like a magnet; it lures you mentally, emotionally, and sensually; it fascinates the imagination; it entices the flesh to take a closer peek. If you don’t stop this process, it will set its hook in your soul and haul you right smack dab into the middle of some kind of sin!

Because the word peirasmos (“temptation”) can describe any weakness of the flesh, this scripture could apply to any fleshly weakness you might struggle with – from being lazy or easily offended; to thinking too lowly or too highly of yourself; to having a problem with anger or sexual temptation. Whatever your flesh responds to is what this word peirasmos refers to!

But this verse promises that God will make a way for you to escape temptation – if you really want to escape it! The Greek word for “escape” is the word ekbasis. This word is a compound of the word ek, meaning out, and the word basin, meaning to walk. When they are compounded together, it means to walk out, as to walk out of a difficult place; to walk out of a trap; or to walk out of a place that isn’t good for you.

This makes me think of the time Joseph fled from Potiphar’s wife when she tried to seduce him. Rather than stay there and try to negotiate in the midst of the situation, Genesis 39:12 says Joseph “…fled, and got him out.” In other words, he got out of there as quickly as he could!

Negotiating with sin usually leads to falling into it rather than conquering it, so it’s better for a person to just get up and get away from the situation as quickly as he can! This is why Paul was constantly telling the early believers to “flee” evil influences (see 1 Corinthians 6:18; 1 Corinthians 10:14, 1 Timothy 6:11; 2 Timothy 2:22).

The word “flee” is the Greek word pheugo, which means to flee, to take flight, to run away, to run as fast as possible, or to escape. This means you don’t want to succumb to those temptations that are surrounding you. You just need to get up, put on your jacket, pick up your things, and get out of that place of temptation as fast as you can! Let your feet fly as you flee that situation! You’re not stuck there! You can get out! You can walk out of that place just as easily as you walked in there! Your feet work in both directions! God will make a way for you to escape those negative emotions if you really want to escape them. But you are the only one who can make the choice to jump through that escape hatch!


·         If you know you’re being tempted to angrily explode, walk out before it happens!


·         If you know you’re being tempted to get your feelings hurt, go somewhere else to avoid the offense!


·         If you know you’re being tempted to slip into a state of laziness, then get up and get busy!


·         If you know you’re being tempted to steal, get as far away as you can from the money or the coveted object!


·         If you know you’re being tempted to sexually sin, get out of that situation immediately!


·         If you know you’re being tempted to do anything wrong, it’s time for you to flee from the temptation!

Millions of Christians are held captive because they will not take the leap through that escape hatch. As a result, they have no joy, no peace, and no victory in their lives. They may be Christians, but they’re miserable because they haven’t made the choice to jump through the escape hatch God has provided for them and leave all those negative temptations and garbage behind.

If you’ll say yes to the Lord, He will show you how to walk out of this mess! You can avoid, evade, dodge, elude, shake off, get out of, and break away from every temptation! You are the only one who can choose to walk out of those killer mental attacks or negative situations. The moment you make that decision, your journey to freedom has begun!

So today the Lord is asking you: “Are you going to stay the way you are right now, or are you willing to take the proper steps to escape from this emotional temptation and demonic trap?” What is your answer? What are you going to do? God is waiting for you to decide if you will receive the freedom He is offering you or remain a hostage for the rest of your life. The choice is yours to make.


My Prayer for Today


Lord, help me find the strength to say no to my flesh and to flee from temptation when it tries to wrap its long tentacles around my soul and drag me into some kind of sin. I know what it’s like when sin calls out to my flesh, beckoning it to do something that is forbidden or wrong, but I don’t want to cooperate with it anymore. I want to walk free – to flee from sin and break free of its vicious grip. Help me bring my mind under the control of the Holy Spirit so I can think rationally when Satan tries to attack me through my mind, my emotions, or my senses.

I pray this in Jesus’ name!


My Confession for Today


I confess that God makes a way for me to escape temptation. I do not negotiate with sin! When it tries to call out to me, I get up and get out as quickly as I can. I flee, take flight, run away from, and escape as quickly as I can when I know the devil is attempting to lure me into his trap. That’s when I put on my jacket, pick up my things, and let my feet fly! God always makes a way for me to escape – and I always make the right choice to jump through that escape hatch!

I declare this by faith in Jesus’ name!


Questions for you to Consider


1. Can you think of times when you were tempted to yield to sin? Knowing that you needed to get up and get out of that place of temptation, did you stay and fall into some kind of sin? Were you sorry later that you didn’t flee when you had the chance?


2. What is the chief area of temptation that you struggle with more than any other right now?


3. In order for you to walk free from the struggle of that temptation, what changes do you need to make in your life?

Thank GOD Folsom ST East 2013 Canceled

Sodom & Gomorrah Tries Rape Angels

John R. Houk

© May 28, 2013


The homosexual debauchery that has taken place for sixteen years was canceled this year due to road construction. Evidently the area for the annual Folsom Street East outdoor festival in which homosexuals gather together to participate with lewd vendors and homosexual sex acts including the leathers that homosexuals flaunt in their so-called pride efforts to be free to do whatever they want even though it is horrifically immoral was canceled because complaints were forthcoming from last year’s events. In recent years there has been a code of conduct which can read in this photo from 2010 which included no public sex acts; however with no real accountability that conduct policy was enforced very loosely:


• No public sexual activity

• No complete public nudity

• No exposure of genitals

• Alcohol is restricted to designated areas only, consumed by adults 21+

• Adequate space must be cleared and prior consent must be given by all participants in any demo or “scene.”

• No demo or “scene” involving blood or other fluids will be permitted, even with consent.

Our contact also indicated that, although these limits represented NYC statutes, they were never enforced in the past. (From Folsom Street East Perversion Light 2010; By John R. Houk; SlantRight 2.0; 6/25/2010)

Another Warning – Here are a couple of the explicit photos from the above link:





Now tell me this is not disgusting, right?!


The thing about finding out about the canceling of Folsom Street East 2013 is that luxury seems to be disenchanted with public homosexuality. The non-profit organization that is Folsom Street East simply tells us the cancellation is due to road construction as that is a mere glitch of the last sixteen years. The reality is luxurious buildings that are trendy hotels, restaurants and condos are encroaching on the fringe homosexual district of Manhattan. The sad thing most of the information about the canceled event I found via Google was from either pro-homosexual websites or Leftist critics of the cancellation.


Frankly I can’t vouch if this search engine availability is because Google is making sure pro-homosexual information occurs about Folsom Street East searches or if Pro-Family and Pro-Christian Moral Values organizations have dropped the ball on exploiting this story.


Shame on Google if they are skewing search engine results or shame on Pro-Family/Pro-Christian Moral Values organizations if they dropped the ball or shame on both if these thoughts on search engines and the Conservative-Christian Right are valid accusations.


Here are excerpts from two pro-homosexual sources on the closing of Folsom Street East (Hat Tip: Solid Snake):



For most of its 16 years, Folsom East was surrounded by industrial sites and strip clubs. But a recent construction boom brought residential buildings to the far-flung block between 10th and 11th avenues.


Named after the legendary Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco, the party usually draws thousands of visitors and raises money for LGBT-related charitable causes.


In addition to the +aRt condo, where residents already live, construction on the two-building, 710-unit Avalon West Chelsea is also underway, which will eventually bring a 31-story tower and 13-story building to the block.


The changing dynamic already affected last year’s festival — when some residents of the +aRt building complained about being “embarrassed” by the kinky revelers, leading organizers to construct a sidewalk corridor allowing residents to get to their homes without walking through Folsom East itself.


The message on Folsom East’s website assured fetish-lovers that the festival would return, though it was unclear if it would be on the same block.


“Thanks for 16 great years celebrating sexual freedom with the Folsom Street East Street Festival and we hope to see you back on the kinky streets of New York City in 2014!” the site reads.


A spokeswoman for Folsom East did not immediately respond to requests for comment. (Folsom East Fetish Festival Canceled Due to Construction; By Mathew Katz; DNAinfo New York; April 23, 2013 10:09 am)


With the twin blows yesterday of hearing that both Folsom Street East and Fleet Week have been cancelled this year (really, what are we going to do during June?) here’s a bit of a respite.


Fil Vocasek, the board chairmen of Folsom Street East, says that the organization is attempting to plan a number of fetish-themed events throughout the month of June which will take the form of smaller, indoor parties at various venues. The main event was cancelled this year due to construction on 28th Street.


“We’re in conversation with other groups and organizations to make sure there are a lot of fetish, kinky things going on in the month of June,” Vocasek tells DNAinfo.


Folsom Street East’s cancellation came after the closing of the popular fetish and leather bar, Rawhide last month. That site, however, may be staying true to it’s gay bar roots.


Though the advertisement outside of the old Rawhide on Eighth Avenue describes the “corner restaurant/retail space for lease,” the agent behind the listing suggests that another gay bar or club may be taking over the reins from the popular leather bar that closed March 30.


JD Sutro, a broker of Lee & Associates says “A lot of people know the history, everyone knows Rawhide, so we’ve gotten a lot of calls looking to open up another men’s bar or another restaurant that supplements the area.” (Folsom Street East planning smaller events throughout June in lieu of cancelled street fair; By Will Pulos; Next Magazine; April 25, 2013)


Below is an excerpt from a homosexual friendly author that provides more detail about the resident’s perspective on the Folsom Street East:


New Yorkers have mixed feelings about the High Line. Sure, it’s popular enough to make other cities jealous. But it’s kind of out of the way and, damningly, overrun by tourists. It’s also long been the object of ire from long-time residents suspicious of Bloombergian development, who find it a little too … manicured. It’s a project that makes New Yorkers face up to the question of what sort of city they want to live in — one that’s exciting, but little bit rougher around the edges, or one that’s safe but maybe a little bit tame? And that contrast has never been as stark as now, when High Line-related construction is conflicting with a kinky sex parade.


Jeremiah Moss, a blogger who’s solidly on the side of the older, rougher city, writes that the construction of fancy buildings in the High Line’s neighborhood has led to the cancellation of an old and dear ritual: the Folsom Street East street festival, “the largest outdoor fetish street festival on the easter coast, which brings thousands of sexy kinksters out onto the streets of New York City on a summer afternoon to celebrate sexual diversity and expression.”



Perhaps this is a sign that whatever kinky culture is left in New York has simply moved to a more outer borough. But perhaps shiny, modern cities can’t be safe for tourists, gentrifiers, and sexy kinksters at the same time. For efficiency reasons, it’s quite desirable for more people to live in cities, but it’s important to make sure there’s room not just for people who want to spend $4 on hibiscus ice pops but for people who’d rather spend their money on horse-tail buttplugs. (New York has to choose between its High Line and its kinky sex parades; By Sarah Laskow; Grist; 23 Apr 2013 12:18 PM)


You see the problem I have in relying on news sources that favor moral corruption is there is no perspective from the residents expanding into the 28th Street area of Manhattan where homosexual debaucheries take place. The Pro-Homo sources dare not mention that some-many-most of the residents’ view of homosexual acts as something more than inappropriate. Could some-many-most view open homosexuality as morally repugnant?


This is the point at which Pro-Family/Conservative-Christian groups have dropped the ball. Someone needs to investigate the percentage of the complaining residents are willing to eschew political correctness and let the world know they have a Christian Moral conflict with the homosexual lifestyle in their front and backyard. Send the Catholic pro-morality investigators to the Catholics and send the Protestant pro-morality investigators to the Protestants. OR here is a true ecumenical idea: This is a time for pro-morality Catholics and Protestants can come together on to investigate AND to promote Christian Morality in the area.


I say “true ecumenical” because the current ecumenical movement tends to be Liberal factions of Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Protestants unifying on a social activism agenda which tends to be pro-homosexual and to be neutering the Word of God in which Christ’s Divinity, Crucifixion and Sonship are theologically questioned because the Bible does not line up with Modernist philosophy which leans toward secularizing society and abandoning the Creator of all that exists as presented in the Holy Bible. A true ecumenism would be Bible Believing Christians (or on the Catholic-Eastern Orthodox side the Conservative Believing traditionalists) can stand together to jointly affirm Christian Morality.

Homosexuals Continue their Abomination against GOD

Queen James Bible ad

John R. Houk

© December 17, 2012


This is quite disgusting! Christian Right Believers are quite aware of the beauty of the old King James Version (KJV) of the Bible. Many lay Christians have moved on to a more modern English translation than the 17th century KJV. I myself favor the New King James Version (NKJV) or the Amplified Bible. Other Conservative Bible Believing Christians like the New International Version (although there is criticism of the newest remake of the NIV). In my early Born Again days of Christian conversion I favored the Revised Standard Version (RSV) and the old KJV. In fact I used my RSV so much that it fell to pieces. When my RSV became to worn to read I went to the NIV. I am sure many of you might have similar stories on your Bible reading.


Today one can see the influence of Secular Humanism in the newest translations. The newest translations remove the obvious masculine sense of the original Greek, Aramaic, and Hebrew and so on to be replaced with neutered (yeah I know ‘neutral’ is probably a better word nonetheless the neutral tense is an emasculation of the Word of God) versions.


There are homosexuals pretending to be Christians. In order to validate homosexuality, obvious Biblical homosexual lifestyle condemnations are warped into Divine approval. The newest spin on the homosexual agenda to discredit Biblical Christianity is a Gay Bible spun off the King James Bible. The God labeled abomination today known homosexuality have fabricated Holy Scripture that is called the Queen James Version.


The Christian Post has a write-up on this twisting of the Word of God by homosexuals.
