Questions & Answers

The roots of homosexuality

First posted: March 20, 2005

 

Question

What are the spiritual roots behind homosexuality?

 

Answer

Molech

A key to answer this question can be found in the following passage:


"21And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD. 22Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination." (
Leviticus 18:21-22)


One day, towards the end of 2003, the Lord whispered to my heart that I should study about "Moloch" (which I knew very little about), so I looked it up in a concordance, and this is the first passage I found. I was surprised by the fact that the sin of homosexuality is mentioned immediately after the mention of "Molech". I knew that this was not a "random" occurrence, since every word in Scripture was placed there by God with a very specific sequence and purpose.

As I asked the Lord concerning this, I began to understand that homosexuality is strongly related to the Jebusite spirit. As you may notice from the passage above, the Lord forbad that we pass "our seed" through the fire of Molech. In a literal sense, this referred to the ancient practice of burning one's children as sacrifice to Molech. However, there is a deeper meaning behind this passage:

The word "seed" in the passage above was correctly translated from the Hebrew word zera, which literally refers to the "seeds" that are sown on the ground, and is often used in Scripture to refer to one's descendants. In a natural sense, one's natural progeny represents one's "natural future" on Earth. Therefore, the "seed" of Leviticus 18:21 represents our "prophetic future", i.e.- the prophetic calling or vision that God has called each one of us to live out. A natural seed has "life potential" inside of it, meaning that it also speaks of our spiritual potential.

The name "Molech" literally means "king". As we have said before, the Amorite spirit is a spirit of "self-exaltation". People possessed by this spirit strive to be "kings" over others. Therefore, "Molech" represents an Amorite spirit that establishes an "earthly kingdom" of domination over others. The Amorite spirit is unfortunately very strong inside the Church, and it manifests itself in human leaders who impose an earthly system of domination over other believers through earthly rules and decrees.

Wherever an Amorite establishes itself as a king, a host of Jebusite spirits crops up. This host serves as the "law enforcement" corps that allows the Amorite spirit to maintain its control. People influenced by the Jebusite spirit are "legalistic" people who don't think twice about slapping any person who dares to question the king's decrees. They care more about the enforcement of external rules than about the people they are enforcing the rules on. In Scripture, the Lord emphasizes the importance of making judgments; however, the Jebusites make judgments in the strength and discernment of the flesh, not the Spirit.

Jebusites develop such a deep obsession with the fulfillment of the Amorite king's commands that they are willing to sacrifice the lives of "lower-caste plebeians", if that's what it takes for the commands to be carried out. For example, a Jewish Jebusite in the days when Moses was born would not have thought twice about handing his male baby over to Pharaoh to be slaughtered, if that's what it took to obey Pharaoh's command (Exodus 2:1-10). Therefore, Moses' parents were clearly not Jebusites. They were unwilling to hand Moses (their prophetic "seed") over as a sacrifice to Molech (i.e.- Pharaoh).

As we have said before,
the "woman" in Scripture is generally a figure of one's "soul" while "man" is a figure of one's "spirit". Since Jebusites go about "slapping" people and imposing the Amorite's decrees, they feel very "macho", but, in God's eyes, they are nothing but "ranting females" because they are operating at the soul level, not the spirit level. Jebusites work very hard to suppress the "spirit authority" of the people around them. Therefore, we can say that Jebusites suppress the "spiritual manhood" of the people around them. Their relentless insistence on submission to earthly decrees and commandments leads to "spiritually effeminate" people, i.e.- men and women with no real spiritual authority.

 

"28And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: 29For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes." (Matthew 7:28-29)

[Notice that the scribes did not have spiritual authority, despite the fact that they were men who appeared to have a great deal of "religious" authority]


Therefore, one of the deep roots which leads to homosexuality is a spirit of "Jebusite legalism". In families, for example, where there may have been many generations of Jebusites sacrificing their "prophetic seed" to various "Molechs", a door is opened for the spirit of homosexuality to enter (Leviticus 18:22).

 

Around 1988, a British group called "The Pet Shop Boys" put out a song called "It's a sin". In it, the singer speaks of the sense of shame that was instilled in him as a young man attending catholic school. There is a part of the song that goes as follows:

"When I look back upon my life, it's always with a sense of shame

 I've always been the one to blame."

The song was obviously not well-received by the catholic church, especially by the priests who ran the school that the singer had attended, but it reveals a fact that I have found to be confirmed by other sources: the catholic church is strongly influenced by the Jebusite spirit. As we have said before, Jebusites love to humiliate people, especially those who are "small". This is why catholic priests can be so brutally harsh with young children at their parochial schools. The Scriptures do teach that we must make judgments, but Jebusites make harsh, merciless judgments that enforce meaningless human laws and regulations. Jebusites (and Girgashites) think that pleasing God consists of performing many external activities, and they always judge others based on external compliance with stupid and meaningless regulations. Jebusites don't understand that external compliance is meaningless without an internal change, and internal changes are performed through judgment logos pronounced in the anointing of the Spirit. God's judgments work compliance to His spiritual laws, not to man's meaningless religious regulations.

 

The strong Jebusite influence inside the catholic church explains why it has had such a disproportionate number of homosexual, pedophile priest scandals (when compared to other religious groups, social groups, and even criminal groups). Wherever Jebusite spirits are allowed to infiltrate and deprive people of their "spiritual manhood", homosexual and effeminate manifestations become inevitable. As we can infer from Leviticus 18:21-22 (quoted above), wherever Jebusites are allowed to sacrifice the "little ones" unto Molech, the door to the homosexual spirit is inevitably opened.

 

Therefore, it is essential to pray for the restoration of "spiritual manhood" in the families where the "little ones" have been constantly sacrificed unto Molech. The sense of unjustified shame brought on by the Jebusites must be replaced through prayer by a sense of spiritual value and purpose, and all the Molechs must be cursed and toppled through judgment prayer.

 

True judgments

As we have said before, Numbers 21:1-3 declares that the Canaanite spirit must be "cursed unto destruction". Since the homosexual spirit is a Canaanite spirit, it must be dealt with through prayers that condemn it to utter destruction, and this "utter destruction" will not come without pain for the person possessed by the homosexual spirit. Therefore, to truly love that person implies a willingness to see that person suffer so that he or she may be restored:

 

"He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes." (Proverbs 13:24)

 

"13Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. 14Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell." (Proverbs 23:13-14)

[The word "hell" was translated from the Hebrew word Sheol, which refers to the literal hell but also refers to a place of spiritual purposelessness, where one loses one's prophetic calling]

 

"The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame" (Proverbs 29:15)

 

"8For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season. 9Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. 10For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. 11For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter." (2 Corinthians 7:8-11)

 

Some of the ways in which one could pray restoration judgments on a person with a homosexual spirit would be the following:

  1. Prayer for judgment to come upon the person's emotions

    This can entail praying for restlessness, sleepless nights, terrible emotional afflictions, etc.

     

  2. Prayer for judgment on the homosexual people around the person

    This can entail praying for financial difficulties, emotional sorrow, and diseases over them, especially on those whose hearts are so hardened that they will never repent.

     

  3. Prayer asking that the person will see his or her homosexual partners for what they are in the spirit, as savage and rabid animals, devoid of a sober, judgment-making mind.

    Notice, for example, what the two angels did to the people of Sodom when they wanted to sodomize them:

     

    "And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door." (Genesis 19:11)

    ["Coincidentally", the number of this verse - "11" - represents "purifying judgment" in Scripture]

     

    As we have said before, the "eyes" are associated to the making of judgments in Scripture. By smiting the Sodomites with blindness, God was "exposing" the Canaanites' lack of sober judgment. Their deep hatred of God's judgments causes them to make emotion-based judgments that are completely ludicrous; they end up calling the good "bad" and the bad "good" in ways that are completely anti-logical and anti-truth. Spiritually speaking, Canaanites are like blind drunkards. That is why God blinded them, making them look around for the door like a mob of drunken fools. By the way, doors and gates in Scripture are a figure of judgment. Therefore, the Sodomites' inability to find the door is a figure of how they are incapable of finding "good judgment", no matter how hard they try.


There was a young man in Corinth who was committing a terrible sin, and this is what brother Paul had to say about him:

 

"1It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. 2And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. 3For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, 4In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 5To deliver such an one unto satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus." (1 Corinthians 5:1-5)


Notice that Paul emphasizes his physical absence in the passage above. Why? Because the judgment he was pronouncing against the fornicator was a spiritual judgment. As we have said before, spiritual judgments are much more lethal and effective than judgments in the flesh. A fervent believer on his or her knees can unleash spiritual judgments that can cause the physical destruction of entire towns and cities. God's spiritual judgments are also precise in the sense that they never punish an innocent victim; they are like laser-guided missiles that hit the exact target that needs to be hit. Spiritual judgments are also able to penetrate the innermost being of people (Hebrews 4:12), and that is something that judgments in the flesh will never do (Colossians 2:16-23).

 

There is a certain irony here: even though Jebusite judgments open the door for the homosexual spirit, the solution is not to "remove judgments" but to replace them with the right judgments. Without spiritual judgments, a person trapped by a homosexual spirit can never be restored. Canaanites hate judgments, and people influenced by the homosexual spirit hate them even more because of their pent-up resentment against unfair, Jebusite judgments. However, the only "prescription" against the homosexual spirit is precisely what it hates the most.

 

When Jebusites make judgments, they always forget the purpose of the judgments. Jebusites value the Amorites' laws more than the persons to which those laws are applied. Spiritual judges value the person and see the judgments as a redeeming agent that will prevent the person's value and potential from being lost. This is why Paul speaks of the salvation of the person's spirit in 1 Corinthians 5:5 above. Paul was not delivering that person to satan simply because that person broke a regulation in the "church manual"; he did it out of a sincere desire to see that person restored in the Spirit. Those who judge in the Spirit are aware, however, that there are cases where the other person is "beyond repair". In such cases, we must pray for destruction without restoration that is born out of a zeal for God's righteousness and out of a desire to prevent others from being contaminated by that person's wickedness and iniquity.

 

True sacrifice

Since the door to the homosexual spirit is opened by Jebusites sacrificing the small ones to Molech, the door is closed by reversing that sacrifice, and that is done by sacrificing the small ones unto God. Consider the following passage:

 

"1And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. 2And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of." (Genesis 22:1-2)

 

Notice that God asked Abraham to give his seed, Isaac, as a burnt offering unto Him, not unto Molech. While Molech devours the potentially good seed offered to him, God resurrects it:

 

"17By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, 18Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: 19Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure." (Hebrews 11:17-19)

 

Therefore, the person with the homosexual spirit must be handed over to God by saying, "Lord, do whatever you want to do with him or her. If he or she has to go through hell, so be it, Lord, as long as your purpose is fulfilled". When God hears such prayers, He answers them, and the restoration process begins.
