Ok so like I said before here is a testmony in the form of spoken word poetry by Poet J”O” speaks that maybe hard for some people to swallow but please be warned that the words he uses are 18+ from his personal testimony and experience of sexual abuse and homosexuality.
Poet J”O” addresses his battle with homosexuality and what it means to be born “gay”. How do we understand this rhetoric of people claiming to be born “Gay”? How is it possible? I know in some Christian circles there has been an ongoing debate about whether being gay is something inherited or not. We can debate all day long about it but I’m of the opinion that it is possible to be born “gay”. Think about it, if we are all born into sin, then yes, you can understand the whole rhetoric behind why some people feel that they were “Born Gay” since sin was in us to begin with by the time we were even born.
Our fathers sinned and are no more, and we have borne their iniquities.
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Yes, it is possible that some of us were even born liars, cheaters, adulterers, drug addicts, alcoholics, abusers, schizophrenics, thieves, narcissists, rebellious, kantankerous, angry, etc etc because sin is sin and we were all born in sin, but there is Good NEWS! We can all be born-again by the washing of Jesus’ blood that blots out all our trangressions and renews our spirits to be clothed and robed in righteousness for His name sake.
Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
We don’t have to remain sinners when Christ died and paid the price for all our iniquities. Jesus saved all of us and wants us to live a life of abundunce.
1 Peter 1:23
having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,
So listen to Poet J”O”‘s testimony with compassion and may it minister to those that have encountered similar battles that are typically swept under the rug because of Shame. I know in some Churches, a lot of these topics aren’t touched upon but these realities exists my friends so let’s open up our eyes, open up our ears and hear and listen with our hearts in order to no longer be deceived about the realities of people’s lives and experiences.
God doesn’t want His people to walk around in Shame anymore. He wants to break the yokes of injustice in our lives so that we can live free and redeemed by His ever enduring love that will never pass away.
1 Chronicles 16:34
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
There may have been people set up to steal your innocence at a tender age but even so we must understand that the Devil hates us soo much and works at stealing our joy, or innocence, our ability to love and be free in Christ by replacing those things with pain, hatred, depression, sadness, anguish, confusion of our own identity, etc, because Satan is a Thief of our peace that we can only find in GOD.
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Watch Poet J”O”‘s Testimony
Jesus is the REPAIRER OF THE BREACH.
Those from among you Shall build the old waste places; You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
He wants to repair and restore all who have suffered abuse, neglect, abandonment, etc at the hands of those you may have trusted, those that betrayed you, those that didn’t epitomize what true love is. So for whatever you are going through right now, know that Jesus cares for you and that whoever hurt you in your past has no power to continue to control your joy, your peace, your happiness because God can redeem you, heal and restore you when you accept that He can Repair that breach of trust that was broken, that pain that was inflicted, that mind that was torn by the lies of the enemy, that heart that was broken and shattered into many pieces by people who you thought “loved” you. God is Jehovah RAPHA- I AM HEALER. Let Him heal these places in your mind, heart, body and soul today. I encourage that people share these stories to anyone that has suffered if you think it will help them.
Jesus said in the book of Luke that:
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
Believe that this is what He wants to do for His people today. Jesus Loves you.
I have a song that I hope ministers to you by Anthony Evans called RESTORE ME. May it minister to people’s broken hearts today.
Stay Blessed Everybody!
