WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION
The Word of God speaks clearly on this very important subject, and we, at Absolute Bible Study, are not about to water it down. Homosexuality and lesbianism IS NOT an alternative lifestyle or a biological sexual predisposition, IT IS DEVIL SPIRIT POSSESSION AND CONTROL OF THE WORST POSSIBLE TYPE.
II Corinthians 2: 17 -- For we are not as many, which corrupt [adulterate, water down] the Word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in [of] Christ.
When you reach a point in your life that you totally and completely degrade yourself by turning to homosexuality or lesbianism, you have hit rock bottom. In fact, as the greatest man of God I have met in my lifetime taught me – you are not at the bottom of the barrel, YOU ARE UNDERNEATH.
Romans is basic doctrine to the church of the Body of Christ (born-again believers), yet in the first chapter God speaks clearly about this subject. God speaks about lust, corruption and especially idolatry and how God is forced to ‘give up’ on certain believers BECAUSE OF THAT BELIEVER’S OWN FREE WILL. God is so just, He is even just to the devil himself. Because of the lust (over-desires) of some believers, God must turn them aside to Satan to do with them as he wills. Remember, God is all light and in Him is no darkness at all. He ‘ALLOWS’ the enemy to afflict habitual sinners. You need to never forget that. The true God and Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ never makes anyone sick and He DOES NOT kill people.
I Corinthians 15: 26 – The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
Then death is an enemy. Do you need more proof?
Hebrews 2: 14 – Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Who has the power of death? Then who kills people? So I don’t get off the subject matter here, look up I John 1: 4 and remember that God NEVER brings hardships or negatives upon anyone. People bring it upon themselves. People who have turned to ‘without natural affection’ HAVE BROUGHT IT UPON THEMSELVES by their own free will. And it is the most difficult form of Satanic oppression/possession to be delivered from. It is Satan’s strongest devil spirit. As a result, most homosexuals and lesbians simply give up and never get delivered. That is why they appear to be so bold about what they practice. They are THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF THE LOVE OF GOD IN THE RENEWED MIND IN MANIFESTATION. You cannot get two animals to do what homosexuals and lesbians do. As God’s Word so clearly states – IT IS NOT NATURAL.
Romans 1: 26 -- For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Literal: For this reason God gave them up to passions or affections of dishonor, shame or disgrace -- passions of infamy, for both their females changed (to change one thing for or into another) the natural use into that contrary to nature (inborn quality, natural source or origin).
Romans 1: 27 -- And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error [weakness] which was meet.
Literal (a) : And in like manner also, the males having left the natural use of the female, were inflamed in their lust towards one another, males with males working out or achieving shame, moral deformity, and indecency, and receiving (lambano - into manifestation -- paid back in full) in themselves the recompense or retribution (deserved punishment for evil done) of their seduction from the truth, their wandering from the truth which was necessary or fit.
The word 'meet' here refers to something that is necessary and that there is need of, implying that something is absent or wanting. The Interlinear puts this word after recompense. Restating the verse with less explanations, if any:
Literal (b) : And in like manner also, the males having left the natural use of the female, were inflamed (burned) in their lust towards one another, males with males achieving shame, moral deformity, and indecency, and being paid back in full the retribution that was fitting for their wandering and seduction from the truth.
Just as in modern military armies today, Satan has different hierarchies of devil spirits, from buck privates (diamonion) to generals (daimon). This is documented in the Word of God – especially in the gospels. DAIMON are the ruling devil spirits – they direct and give commands to the DAIMONION – the lower ranking devil spirits.
Spirits of ‘without natural affection’ are the STRONGEST AND MOST EVIL FORCES ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. You can say that they are the 5-star generals of Satan’s army – his crack troops. If, by your own free will, you have given place to this spirit, it may be very, very, difficult to get delivered.
I am simply speaking to you the truth from God’s Word and as a child of God, He wants you to know the truth and the only truth is in God’s Word – everything else is fact and can be disputed.
John 17: 17 -- Sanctify [set apart] them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
Man has watered down this subject to a very dangerous point slowly but surely giving gay groups more and more equal rights. That falls right in line with Satan’s plans. REMEMBER: "The secret to his success is the secrecy of his moves." Many government administrations and agencies have broken under the pressure of the enemy. Policy-making as described will eventually bring a country to its knees. It is only a matter of time.
We have studied ‘without natural affection’ in the New Testament mainly, but this degradation and abomination to God has existed since Lucifer rebelled against God and was cast out of heaven taking 1/3 of the angels with him. These angels make up Satan’s devil spirit kingdom on earth today.
Revelation 12: 4a – And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth [devil spirits]:
** Remember, this is still in the future. This Scripture was used to prove that one-third of the angels make up the devil-spirit kingdom which is alive and well today. Few people believe this to be true. This is one of the contributing factors to the enemy’s success in some situations. You cannot fight an enemy if you are unaware or deny that he exists!
Now let’s go back and examine some Old Testament records on the subject of homosexuality/lesbianism (same spirit).
Chapter 18 of Leviticus speaks of many types of sexual perversions. Keep in mind that God was speaking to Moses in this example. The CONTEXT of the Word of God is one of three (3) ways that the Bible interprets itself. If you pull a verse out of context, you no longer have God’s Word. What you have is private interpretation or ‘guesswork’.
II Peter 1: 20 -- Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private [idios -- one's own] interpretation.
Now we should be able to understand the following verse in Leviticus regarding the forbidden sexual perversion of men with men and women with women.
Leviticus 18: 22 – Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Could God have written it any simpler? Again, in Leviticus, Chapter 20, there is a similar record where God is speaking to Moses. This verse is even more specific than the previous one.
Leviticus 20: 13 – If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
Do you think that AIDS may fall somewhere in this picture? I watched someone die from AIDS. Do you know where they put him to spend his last days? In a State Mental Hospital. I worked there. When the adversary is done with you, he tosses you aside like garbage.
As a final example, I would like to use a real life example of a group of homosexuals wanting to have sexual relations with believers. This record may surprise and shock you to some extent when you first learn the real meaning behind this record. Of course, God protected these believers from these homosexuals who were possessed and controlled by Satan. This record is back in the Book of Genesis. Before we begin, I would like you to understand that back in Biblical times, the phrase "to know" meant ‘to have sexual relations’.
To fully understand the context of this important record, you should begin reading Genesis Chapter 18.
Genesis 19: 1 – And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
Now watch how God protected Abraham’s nephew Lot and his house. First of all, the two visitors at the gate of the city of Sodom that Lot met WERE ANGELS. They appeared as men to the human eye and to Lot. Also, you should be aware of Eastern hospitality customs as we study this record. Lot bowed down with his face to the ground as a sign of respect. This is an exciting record, so let’s move on.
Genesis 19: 2 – And he [Lot] said [to the two men], Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.
Again, if you don’t understand Eastern customs and hospitality, you will not be able to understand this verse. It was getting late in the evening and Lot was inviting these two men to stay overnight in his home. [Today, if you get near someone’s car in a parking lot, they lock the door – out of fear.] He was telling them all the amenities they could expect to have by being a guest at his home. So why did they refuse? Actually, they weren’t refusing the offer. Let me explain.
This is a strange custom in the East referred to as ‘constraining’. It is noted to be impolite and actually rude to accept an offer of hospitality or even any type of gift when it is offered for the FIRST TIME. These two strangers wanted to be asked again because surely they did not want to sleep out in the street! It is an unusual custom, but one that is still practiced in certain parts of the East. Now you will see this offer accepted in the next verse after Lot became more persistent.
Genesis 19: 3 – And he [Lot] pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.
That is what you call hospitality according to the Word of God.
Genesis 19: 4 – But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
Genesis 19: 5 – And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
Can you imagine this?! Sodom was loaded with homosexuals and they surrounded Lot’s house because word spread that there were two strange men staying at Lot’s home. These people were yelling to Lot to bring them out so that they can ‘know’ them – have perverted, degrading and sick sexual relations with them. If I were a betting man, I would bet most of you never saw this record before. It’s sickening, isn’t it? It’s nauseating to me and that’s my opinion. But God had it written for a reason. Watch what happens to these homosexuals.
Genesis 19: 6 – And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
Remember, a homosexual or lesbian can be delivered, but it’s a tough road. That person needs to constantly flood their mind with God’s Word and pray in the Spirit morning to night. This verse shows us that Lot tried to talk to this group of people and by shutting the door after him, tried also to protect his guests. Remember, Lot still doesn’t know that his guests are angels sent from the true God and Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Someone can be born again and still practice ‘without natural affection’. Be very, very, careful if you are trying to help that person. I know of a woman of God who went somewhere with a lesbian she was trying to help with God’s Word. She was warned by other believers, by revelation from God, not to go on that trip. She went anyway with the woman who was practicing unnatural affection and the believer was killed in a car accident. This is no joke, people. Doing God’s Will is the way of life. Not doing God’s Will is the way of death. You have free will. Make your choice.
Genesis 19: 7 – And [Lot] said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
I am amazed that Lot uses the word ‘brethren’ here, but some of these men may have been born again – I do not know. The next verse did shock me a bit, but Lot was doing everything to protect his visitors. Maybe this was an Oriental custom since women were not considered very highly by the present society. The Word of God does not tell me, so I do not know exactly why Lot offered these men his daughters.
Genesis 19: 8 – Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.
READ VERSE 9: Now the crowd of homosexuals became angry and violent. They didn’t want Lot’s daughters, they wanted the men inside. They told Lot that they were going to do more harm to him as compared to what they ‘thought’ they were going to do to Lot’s guests. And they moved closer to Lot and tried to break the door down. Homosexuals can be very, very, bold. Now watch what the two guests did to protect Lot in the next verse.
Genesis 19: 10 – But the men [God’s angels/Lot’s guests] put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.
Now things were obviously getting way out of hand and often, THIS IS WHEN YOU WILL SEE THE TRUE ALMIGHTY POWER OF GOD work for you – if you are keeping Him first and you are in fellowship. I’ve seen that power and I will tell you – it can make you tremble – you will actually shake. God never shows you more than you can handle. God NEVER wants to scare anybody. He is all love.
NOW WATCH THE NEXT VERSE . . . . . . . . . . . . .
If you wait for things to happen according to God’s timetable, God will blow your mind. Remember to keep ACTING on the Word of God every day.
Genesis 19: 11 – And they [the angels of God who were Lot’s guests] smote the men [the mob of homosexuals] that were at the door of the house with BLINDNESS*, both small and great [God misses no one]: so that they wearied themselves to find the door. *emphasis added
Well, imagine that. Satan’s strongest powers were messing with one of God’s children and Satan’s 5-star generals all went blind! They lost their sight and they didn’t get it back. In fact, later in the Chapter, God totally destroyed and annihilated the entire cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and all of these homosexuals and lesbians from both cites died. They brought it on themselves. They chose the way of death.
