The roots of homosexuality
First posted: March 20, 2005
What are the spiritual roots behind homosexuality?
A key to answer this question can be found in the following passage:
"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]
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.
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:
"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 fatherís 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 untosatan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus." (1 Corinthians 5:1-5)
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.
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.
