|Coming out and stop hiding from God|
John 19: 28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” 29 Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. 30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
John 21:5 Then Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any food?” They answered Him, “No.” 6 And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish. ....15 So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Feed My lambs.”
The Gay community is hiding from God. Father God is walking in the garden searching and calling His gay children to come Home. We all have sinned. Death has a claim on someone who has sinned. We cannot let the sin of those who has blocked us from seeing God become our sin.
The Gay community longs for peace. We have joy and peace when we approach God with the right basis of faith in Jesus Christ. Righteousness is a gift from God and not a reward for our good works of love for each other.
After the fall of mankind at the Garden of Eden, God couldn't find Adam and Eve because they hid themselves from God. And mankind have been running away from God since then. We fear judgement and looked inwards to our own humanity and "goodness" for redemption instead of upwards to heaven. The Gay children has been running away from God when God is not after us nor condemns us.
We return to God once a while claiming in our religious rites that our good works of love justifies us. We even transfer our own sins to the gentle gay lambs to be sacrificed. But our shame remains. In Jesus Christ, all our shame is taken away, once and for all.
We go very far away from God and then wonder why we could not comprehend God. It is not because of our finite mind but our closed mind and hearts. We run to bible schools to become ordained as christian clergy to find a way to rationalise God and religion. Let us opened our hearts today for Jesus is knocking to come in.
We want God to be a mystery so that we could could fill in the gaps in our theolgical studies with a god made in our own image, the image of a fallen man. But God is no mystery. Jesus is near to those who seek Him. We already have the miracle, of the Son of God coming to earth. There is now no more a mystery but a call for redemption.
Blood was shed, when an animal was killed to cover Adam and Eve. When we are covered by the Blood sacrifice of Jesus, we can return to God. God becomes near to us rather than being a distance away.
At the Cross of Calvary, Jesus drank completely the cup of judgement. He fully paid for our offence. Our sin is forgiven and the devil silenced. Jesus said no one can take away His life. He willingly laid it down for us.
When Jesus said it is finished, He completed His Father's business. We are to start where Jesus had finished to enforced the completed works of the Cross of Calvary.
Once it is finished, we have peace with God. There is nothing, no animosity between God and us. After Jesus rose from the dead, He arose with a new body which transcends space and time. So one day we will have a new body.
In John 21, after Jesus had risen He cooked for the disciples. He asked Peter whether Peter loved Him. Just one word, "Do You Love me?". The question Jesus is asking His Gay children is whether we love Him.
God's truth is beyond natural reasoning, It starts by accepting the finished works of the Cross, then being at peace and at rest with God with a new self, and finally deciding to love God. Often we do it in the reverse, challenging people to love God by going out to the streets to help the less fortunate. It starts first by accepting Christ death for us.
There is a call for a Rainbow Harvest, for God's Gay children to be at peace with themselves and with God through Jesus Christ.
