In this news article from the British newspaper, Telegraph, it’s being reported that the Church of England is now actively recruiting transgender individuals to become vicars (i.e., clergy members, priests) as part of an ongoing “diversity drive.”
We’ll discuss more about this in regards to the debauching of the Bride of Christ in just a moment, and learn exactly why it’s taking place now, in these final days of this flesh earth age. But first, here’s what a newly issued “guidance” from Bishops in the Church of England says:
“Nobody should be told that their sexual or gender identity in itself makes them an unsuitable candidate for leadership in the Church.“
According to the Telegraph, this new “guidance” from Church of England Bishops adds:
“…the perception that the Church is homophobic and transphobic is harming our mission, especially to young people.
We need to challenge this perception by reaching out to LGBT+ people with the good news of God’s love, modelling God’s welcome and care for all people.”
In other words, within the Church of England just about any form of perversion now goes, apparently, including homosexual and transgender priests.
And why? Because, the church Bishops say, failure to include the LGBT crowd “harms their mission” to young people.
But God’s Word says quite the opposite. Such sexual appetites are referred to in the Scriptures as “vile affections” that are “against nature” and are soundly condemned. As it’s written:
Rom 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:
Rom 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 which was meet.
Such behavior (and the Satanic pride behind it, which they now call “gay pride”) is also soundly condemned in God’s Word as being a form of “unrighteous” behavior so egregious that, short of repentance, it eliminates ones inheritance in the eternal kingdom of God. As it’s further written:
1Co 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
1Co 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
1Co 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
God’s Word says if you’re involved in it, repent and come out of it because you’re never going to make it into the eternity if you don’t. But what do the leaders within the Church of England say? One LGBT church leader is quoted as saying:
“It’s my hope that the work being undertaken…will send a very strong signal to LGBT+ people that they’re welcomed and valued on equal terms with our brothers and sisters.
“And to those who seek to treat us as a problem, to harm and dismiss us and deny our gifts and callings – that their behaviour will no longer be tolerated.”
In other words, telling the perverts that they’re going to hell if they don’t repent and change their evil ways is no longer within the purview of the church. We must have “big tent” religion now, which means everyone’s welcome no matter what. It’s “all styles served here” religion.
The church leaders even whine about being identified as “homophobic,” stating “We need to challenge this perception by reaching out to LGBT+ people with the good news of God’s love, modelling God’s welcome and care for all people.”
Except for one little problem: God doesn’t “welcome and care for all people.” He welcomes and cares for those who are sincerely repentant of their sins and faithful to His Word.
Yes, He loves all of His children. But those who refuse to repent of their unrighteous behavior are ultimately cast out. He seeks to save them through the Gospel message, but makes it clear that if they fail to repent and turn away from their ungodly behavior, they’re going to die in their sins.
In short, the Bible clearly teaches that such perversions are abominations to the Lord that rob the individual of His chance for eternal life in God’s family household. You simply can’t get into God’s eternal family household if you’re perverting God’s nature.
What You’re Witnessing Today: the Debauching of the Bride of Christ
I’ve repeatedly explained that what you’re witnessing today is the culmination of Satan’s occult so-called “magnum opus,” or “great work,” in which polar opposites are purposely being blended together in order to transform the globe into a “new way” that essentially estranges God’s children from God’s eternal family household.
In this particular case, people who practice and promote “vile affections” (i.e., homosexuals and transgenders) are being blended with what’s supposed to be God’s righteous many-membered body on this earth — which is to say, Christ’s very bride, the Christian church
The goal of bringing homosexuals and transgenders into the priesthood of the modern church is to corrupt and debauch the bride of Christ to the point our Lord and Savior cannot accept her in spiritual marriage, but instead must condemn her for the egregious nature of her sins.
This is one reason why only the faithful elect remnant will be considered by Christ to be His Bride upon His return.
As I’ve taught many times, Satan’s goal is to debase God’s children to the point that they’re simply unfit to enter the kingdom of heaven. He knows he can’t defeat or otherwise harm God. Therefore, the only thing he has left is to put God into the position of having to destroy more and more of His children in the lake of fire.
And of course, the church is his main target. He pretty much has everyone else in his pocket already. This is why you now see so-called “gay priests” (i.e., homosexual clergy) in just about every major Christian denomination including:
American Churches that Accept Homosexual Clergy:
- The Catholic Church
- The Protestant United Church of Christ
- The Lutheran Church
- The Presbyterian Church
- The Episcopal Church
- Segments of the United Methodist Church
- The Christian Church (i.e., Disciples of Christ)
Churches Around the World that Accept Homosexual Clergy:
- The Church of Scotland
- The Church of England
- The Church of Sweden
- The Church of Norway
- The Church of Denmark
- The Church of Iceland
- The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland
- The Evangelical Church of Germany
- The Methodist Church of Britain
- The Protestant Church in the Netherlands
- The United Protestant Church in Belgium
- The Swiss Reformed Church
- The United Protestant Church of France
- The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada
- The Anglican Church in Canada
- The Old Catholic Church
- The United Church of Christ in Japan
- The Southern Province Synod of the Moravian Church (Protestant)
Trend Toward Transgender Clergy Also Growing
What’s more, according to TheChristianPost.com, transgender clergy are also becoming more accepted in the U.S.
They write: “Transgender clergy now serve openly in several mainline and progressive Christian denominations.”
These churches included several diocese of the Episcopal Church, the United Methodist Church, The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Lutheran Church.
The Anglican Church in Australia has also ordained transgender priests.
So the phenomenon of bringing transgender individuals right into the church clergy is not limited to the Church of England. It’s a growing trend.
Not Limited to Sexuality
What’s more, it’s important to understand that this blending of polar opposites I’ve been talking about in recent studies and commentaries — including the blending of ordained homosexual and transgender priests into the clergy of major churches — is not limited to sexuality or gender.
- Polar opposite cultures are being blended through forced immigration.
- Fruits and vegetables are being mixed and merged through genetic manipulation.
- Insect and animal genes are being inserted into plant genes.
- Polar opposite religions are being blended through the growing “interfaith” movement and the Masonic syncretism of religions that states “all religions equally lead to God.”
- And there’s much more, if you’ve got your eyes open.
All of these blendings, mixings and mergings are against God’s Word, because they violate the principle of leaving God’s creation as He made it.
We’re supposed to be faithful caretakers of God’s creation. As such, we’re to dress and keep (i.e., tend and preserve) God’s creation, just as Adam was commanded to dress and keep (i.e., tend and preserve) the Garden.
We’re not to change and debauch it. We’re charged with preserving it.
The end goal of this societal blending of opposites into one big mishmash of confusion is the achievement of what the occultists refer to as the “Universal Synthesis” resulting in the establishment of what they claim to be “a perfect social order.”
In other words, this merging of opposites is designed specifically to transform society globally, and ultimately to bring about the one-world religio-political system known in the book of Revelation as Mystery, Babylon the Great, Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth.
To better understand this, there are two important Bible studies you might want to read, if you haven’t already:
Those Bible studies will help you understand, through Scripture, what you’re witnessing today as this great global transformation continues to pick up steam.
Don’t let anyone tell you this is a passing phrase or a fad. It’s not. What you’re witnessing today is part of the final “lap around the track,” so to speak, in terms of the powers-that-be preparing this earth for Satan’s arrival.
