THE SIN OF SEXUAL IMMORALITY ● HOMOSEXUAL SEX ● SODOMY
I will preface that no Christian should hate or despise homosexuals. Jesus Christ died for them too. Jesus Christ can forgive and radically change the worst of sinners. It is my personal belief that everyone has some issue of sin that is a stronghold that he or she should overcome or allow Jesus to take away.
This is another open door for demonic infestation: homosexual sex. I have come across individuals who have opened themselves up to unclean spirits that had to be cast out because of the sin of homosexual sex. If the act of fornication (or premarital sex between two of a male and female) can lead to demonic infestation then how much more so with two people of the same sex?
The Bible is replete with passages that our body (if you are a born again Christian) is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 6:19; 1 Cor. 3:16; James 4:4). Our body (or I should say God’s temple) wasn’t meant to be used contrary to God’s will but instead meant to be used to glorify Him and offer it as a sacrifice to Him (1 Cor. 6:20; Rom. 12:10). The only Biblically sanctioned sex (which doesn’t include sodomy and oral sex) is that of a husband and his wife.
But the problem is that the devil has deceived society so much so that most people don’t see homosexual sex as immoral (as long it is between two consenting adults it is okay, right?). The world calls homosexual sex love, but the Bible calls it an abomination. Even certain churches have conceded to the world by accepting homosexuality. According to a Gallup poll, more than half of Protestants in the U.S. support gay marriage. Some churches have gone as far as having homosexuals in leadership. Why would a homosexual repent when even churches have started to consider it acceptable? However, the Bible is clear and explicit on the matter and God’s word is eternal and scripture can’t be broken.

For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s”
(1 Thessalonians 4:2-5) “for you know what commandments we gave you through the Lord Jesus.

(Galatians 6:7-8) “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who (SOWS TO HIS FLESH WILL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION), but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life”

(Hebrews 13:4) “Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but (WHORE-MONGERS AND ADULTERERS GOD WILL JUDGE)”
(2 Timothy 3:1-5) “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For (MEN WILL BE LOVERS OF THEMSELVES), lovers of money, boasters, (PROUD), blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, (LOVERS OF PLEASURE RATHER THAN LOVERS OF GOD), having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”
(James 4:4) “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? (WHOEVER THEREFORE WANTS TO BE A FRIEND OF THE WORLD MAKES HIMSELF AN ENEMY OF GOD)”

Here is Derek Prince on homosexuality:
If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can receive Him into your heart and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
