The LGBTQ, Agenda:  theunfetteredpreacher 

Reading a post on FB, about a Lesbian Kindergarten Teacher, in Toronto Canada.   I copied and put in Bold Print, their agenda for our children. 

It is here for your information.  I am sure you could find the whole article on FB, if you so desired. 

Christians, this is a scary truth…  The left has left any pretence of morality, decently, or of a sound mind, behind.

They have proudly proclaimed their plans.  Personally,  I  do not care what they do, in their own lifes.  Let it Be.

Indoctrination of young minds to an acceptance of and encouragement to this lifestyle, IS JUST WRONG.

Please read these excerpts from the article.  

Lesbian teacher: 

How I convince kids to accept gay ‘marriage’, starting at 4 years old“

With [the principal’s] encouragement, we decided that I would go from class to class and talk about what ‘gay’ means, what does ‘LGBTQ’ mean, what do ‘I’ mean,” she told about 40 attendees, all educators, at her workshop.

Strong related how she began with the junior kindergarten class.”

It’s normal in my classroom


“All my class is very used to who I am. My family picture is very proudly in my room now. 

On Mondays they quite often will say, ‘What did you do with your wife?’ It’s normal in my classroom.”

And I started in Kindergarten. What a great place to start. It was where I was teaching. So, I was the most comfortable there,” Pam Strong said at the conference, attended by LifeSiteNews.

‘It’s normal in my classroom’

In 2011 U.S. gay activist Daniel Villarreal penned a column for Queerty.com stating that the time had come for the homosexual lobby to admit to “indoctrinating” schoolchildren to accept homosexuality.

Why would we push anti-bullying programs or social studies classes that teach kids about the historical contributions of famous queers unless we wanted to deliberately educate children to accept queer sexuality as normal?”

“We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact, our very future depends on it. 

Recruiting children? You bet we are,” he added.

Homosexual activist Michael Swift wrote in 1987 in the Gay Community News that school children would become explicit targets for homosexual indoctrination. 

“We shall seduce them in your schools…They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us,” he wrote at the time. Recruiting children? You bet we are’

Though homosexual activists claim their efforts in the schools are a way of combatting bullying, a number of homosexual activists have highlighted that the movement’s goal is in fact to “indoctrinate” children into accepting the normalcy of the homosexual lifestyle.“I am here to tell you: 

All that time I said I wasn’t indoctrinating anyone with my beliefs about gay and lesbian and bi and trans and queer people? 

That was a lie,” wrote Canadian gay activist Sason Bear Bergman, a woman who identifies as a transgender man, in a March 2015 piece titled “I Have Come to Indoctrinate Your Children Into My LGBTQ Agenda (And I’m Not a Bit Sorry).” 

Bergman holds nothing back, stating she wants to make children “like us” even if that “goes against the way you have interpreted the teachings of your religion.”

And my class all of a sudden popped up. ‘LGBTQ’ was on the board, ‘lesbian,’ and all the different words coming out there. And I sat back and said, ‘Let’s review.’ So, the last year and a half of ‘inclusive’ education came alive in my classroom.”

Strong called it “key” to develop a “positive classroom culture” — and she mentioned it often takes months — before getting into what she called “difficult conversations” with students about convincing students of the normality of her sexual preference for women.

She mentioned how she spends time “building a common vocabulary” in her classroom of words like “stereotype, prejudice, discrimination” so her students will be able to more readily conform to her pro-LGBTQ message.

Strong called it a “fantastic lesson for kids of all ages.”

Let me be clear.  I  am a sinner, saved by the Grace of God.  I hate sin, but love the sinner.

If the LGBTQ,  community wishes to live in that world, I do not condemn them.

When they tell my child, or any child, it is Normal, or perfectly acceptable behavior.  They have crossed a line.

Children are born male or female.  They may go through phases where they play with the other genders, toys.  This is NORMAL.

We should never allow them to be bullied, nor should we encourage them to become something other then what they were born as, a boy or girl.

It is child abuse, to encourage a young boy, to think, act and pretend, he is a girl, or for a young girl a boy.

Parents and Teachers who prey on children like this, should be locked up.   A child is a precious gift from God. 

Those who harm them, in any way….

Lord, please protect our children.  Please keep them safe from these deceptive teachings.  

Draw our children  to You.

Please forgive us our sins, our stupidity, our malicious actions.  Our not standing up and saying:   NO MORE, STOP, TURN BACK TO GOD.

Only You, Oh Lord, can turn us back to Loving and Serving You.  Please Lord, soon.

Somethings must be given up: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

When Moses decided to see what was going on with the burning bush, He received a direct order from God.

Exodus 3:4-6
King James Version (KJV)
And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.

“My grace is sufficient for thee: “-The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

All my Christian life I have heard of Pauls thorn in the flesh, “it is his eyes, or religious Jews “.

I see in the scriptures that he had problems with his sight, no denying that and with the religious, still a problem for those seeking God today.

Do I think he would seek the Lord for either of these things,?  No, he rebuked the religious and Satan alike.  No this thorn went much deeper.

1 Corinthians 12
“lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.   And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

“My grace is sufficient for thee: ”

A local Pastor,  Gary The-Sermonator Carrol, invited people to read the 21 chapters of John, one a day till Thanksgiving.

The frustration of small business :

I have worked full time tuning pianos for 21 years.  I’ve had  pretty steady work, have paid the bills and a little extra most months.

Being self employed,  I haven’t had insurance, vacation pay,  retirement funds.  Just pay for the work done.

Never to be rich but happy with what we had.  If sick, the Doctors I’ve been to have been extremely generous in their charity and understanding.

They have excepted what I could pay.

The local Hospital has let us make Payments for the rest of our lives……Generous in their charity also.

Then I kept hearing I should have a web site, it will increase business, be the greatest tool on my belt.

I  have a beautiful web site:

cotespianoservice.com

I am very pleased with how it looks.  I get several phone calls a day.  If they were all from people requesting tuning and repair, I  would be on the moon.

Most are from Google and other sesrch engines, always checking to see if the information on the site is correct and would I like to invest a mere $100.00 a month to get a higher position on their search engine, because they have one number one spot left and my business is perfect for it.

I may take the site down next year…..money circulating the drain.

Insurance,  now I have Obama Care……

Sign up again every year, policy changes, exorbitant deductible, high Co – pays…..

Another needless, senseless  headache, a problem created to solve a non-existent need.

Don’t get me started on small business taxation.

I just want to work, sleep, repeat. …..don’t call me and ask for money,  There are more ways to spend, then money in the pot.

Government,  Insurance,  Web search engines. ..LEAVE ME IN PEACE….or just send an email. …then I can just delete.

The Holy Spirit in Acts 16 – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

My morning reading today started in Acts 16,  I could not help but notice how active the Spirit was in Pauls life at this time.

Paul knew the Lord and how to hear and obey the Spirit.   We  could learn this also.

》The first step to hearing the Spirit is to be doing  what You already know the Lords bidding.  (Sharing the Gospel where you are).

Paul desired to go to Asia,  good idea, worthy work, not Gods plan:

“forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,”

“the Spirit suffered them not.”

His desire denied, do we see him sulking,  upset, indignant that God had the nerve to disagree with his plans?

Not hardly. ..what followed was prayer,  an attitude of yes Lord.  We find:

“a vision appeared to Paul in the night;”

“after he had seen the vision, immediately “

If you were to look up how many times  the Disciples moved immediately or straightway,  we might learn how to see results in our work for God.

Of course,  Paul and Silas  ended up in jail for their testimony.   They cowered in fear, knowing all was lost.  (not quite, lol)

“At midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.”

Knowing God, obedient to the Spirit,  they counted it joy to be imprisoned for the Gospel.   The Word of God spread because they obeyed.

They went about preaching, teaching and a:

“certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination”

Followed,  proclaiming them to be men of God.

“Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.”

We see an example of “Discerning of Spirits” and the “healing of same”.

Lord, I pray that all that love and serve you would learn to listen to and walk in obedience with Your Holy Spirit,  that we would see You working in our lives and in those we meet.

Amen

Ecstasy : The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

(Gr. ekstasis, from which the word “ecstasy” is derived) denotes the state of one who is “out of himself.” Such were the trances of Peter and Paul, Acts 10:10; 11:5; 22:17, ecstasies, “a preternatural, absorbed state of mind preparing for the reception of the vision”   In Mark 5:42 and Luke 5:26 the Greek word is rendered “astonishment,” “amazement” (comp. Mark 16:8; Acts 3:10).

Ecstasy,  astonishment  both scary words for the Church…. Continue reading

I was in the spirit:

” I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,”

“And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.”

“I was in the spirit”

“the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the Lord was strong upon me.”

“the man whose eyes are open hath said:  He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:”

“I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)”

If I could erase parts of my life it would be those years.  Continue reading

Do we give up hope? – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

There are so many people outside the doors of our churches and homes, who do not know Jesus, do not want to hear about Jesus, will not accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.

WARNING:  LONG POST, DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU CARE FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH JESUS.

I stand here flummoxed. …why do they not understand the peace, joy and grace that could be theirs?  Why can’t I convince even those in my own family to realize the gift of Forgiveness?

This is very frustrating.   There is something even more frustrating though.

That is the number of people who believe in and accept Jesus but who do not accept the fulness of His Holy Spirit.  I believe the Holy Spirit (and His Gifts ) are the Talents the Master left us and expects us to invest and increase until His return.

So many accept the impossibility  of Jesus  dying on the cross to save us from sin and death but the Power of the Holy Spirit. ….not for me, not for today, I don’t  need it,  God doesn’t  want us confused.

On the day of Pentecost the first Gift of the Holy Spirit given to all, was the Gift of Tongues. The crowd received the Gift of Interpretation.

Measure of Faith vrs Full of the Spirit : – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Romans 12:3. Tells us God gives everyone a Measure of Faith.   We choose to activate it when we repent, confess and accept Jesus as both Lord and Savior.

Then it is up to us to increase, to build up the Faith we have received.   We do this by reading the Word, by stepping out in that Faith, sharing the Love and Grace, (Gods unmerited Forgiveness and Favor, Salvation).

James 2:26 
“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”

For Faith is not passive but demands action.

Jude 1:20
King James Version (KJV)
“But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,  Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”

Praying in the Holy Ghost or Spirit,  that my friend is Praying in Tongues. ..This is where being Filled with the Spirit comes in.

The Lord doesn’t  appear to give a measure of the Holy Spirit :   He certainly filled Jesus.

John 3:34
King James Version (KJV)
“For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.”

When  we receive the Lord we receive the Spirit in Full,  someone came up with what we have called  the Baptism of the Holy Spirit,  with the evidence of speaking in tongues.

I  have thought of it this way for over 30 years, the Baptism of the Spirit as a second blessing.  An immersion into and of Gods Spirit.

 Always hearing those who don’t speak in tongues arguing,  if I  didn’t have the Holy Spirit,  I couldn’t have been saved.

Peter and Paul both asked:  “Have you received the Holy Spirit  since you’ve believed? “

They then prayed :

Acts 2:4
King James Version (KJV)
“And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

Some point out speaking in tongues is not always mentioned,  true;  but it is not ruled out either.

Paul encouraged us to be filled with the Spirit :
