Alright. I was bothered from the moment I laid eyes on Caitlyn. I sat in front of the computer trying to wrap my mind around what I was seeing. Little did I know that there is an entire community of transgenders. Bruce has truly opened me up to another world. But am I shocked? No. Bothered? Definitely.
I’m angry at the enemy. He is causing all kinds of confusion in the world. He is truly wreaking havoc with his lies. If you step back and look at what’s going on, you’ll see that it’s really just a bunch of confusion. It doesn’t make sense.
For the sake of simplicity, and because Caitlyn is the topic of discussion, I’ll use Bruce as an example:
A male is born. He is confused because he is having thoughts about himself that contradict how the world and his anatomy identifies him. He then sneaks around, indulging in his mother’s clothes, make-up, etc. He hides these urges for the greater part of his life, all the while in full agreement with the thoughts that are in his mind (the lie of the enemy). He sounds like a man. He has an atom’s apple. He has male body parts. He even has sperm. But in his mind, he’s something else. Then, one day, he decides that enough is enough. He is going to live this life as the person that he feels he is: as a woman. In order to live this life as the person that “he truly is”, he goes through a transition which requires him to completely
mutilate altar his body in order to look the way he feels.
How does this make sense? Where is the logic? It’s confusion.
Why is our first response to be tolerant and accepting? What happened to thinking? We’re walking around with our eyes wide shut. We’ve become robots who mimic everything that society/media tells us to do. Where did this fear of questioning a thing or merely declaring that it’s not right come from? Who told the world that love=tolerance. That is NOT true. Being tolerant of a lie is not love. Watching your brother and sister fall into deception is not love. That’s fear. (But that’s a whole other post…)
It’s a tricky thing when you try to introduce to the world the real devil behind this thing. There is no disorder. Transgenders were not created this way. This is all the work of the enemy.
I blame us: the church.
We’re sitting down on the truth. When Jesus walked this earth, he operated in the supernatural in front of thousands of people. He cast out demons. He healed the sick. He fed thousands with only 5 loaves of bread. He turned H20 into wine. And because of these things, people believed in Him.
What’s our excuse? Where are the Holy Ghost filled, fire-baptized Christians who operate in power? How many people did you witness to today? (Acts 1:8) How many people did you pray for today? (Philippians 2:3-4) What signs are following you? Where is the faith? (Mark 16:17-18)
What does this have to do with Bruce? Everything! 83 percent of Americans identify themselves as Christians. We should be making an impact. If we were, the enemy wouldn’t be running things the way that he is. I scoured the internet and not once did I see anyone touch on the fact that Bruce is being influenced by a devil, straight from the pits of hell. It’s a mere spirit of confusion! Why don’t we just bind it and tell it to go in the name of Jesus?!
But the world and even a lot of the Christian population have no clue about the spirit realm – though it’s written about all throughout the Bible:
Ephesians 6:12 – For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world…
Ephesians 2:2 – And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.
The enemy is deceiving these people and causing them to believe a lie. The devil comes only to steal, kill, and destroy. (John 10:10) Think about it. He whispers the lie that you aren’t the person that God created you to be. He then convinces you to believe/agree with the lie – all the while calling God a liar, as if He made a mistake. You then go as far as a complete makeover to include sex change operation. And what happens next? Statistics show that an alarming amount of transgenders commit suicide. The enemy has won another soul.
It’s interesting to me that he comes not only to kill, but to destroy. Are these the same? No. As a born again believer, living my life for Christ, if I die, my body dies but my soul will go to heaven. But if the enemy had killed me before I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord & Savior, not only would I have died, but my soul would be forever tormented and ripped apart in hell. Destroyed.
By spreading lies to those who believe they are transgender, he is stealing them to kill them and destroy them through suicide. The suicide rate of transgender people is 41% compared to the 4.6% of the overall population (The Williams Institute). This isn’t a coincidence. It is a tactic of the enemy to take folks out. The world doesn’t realize that there is a real enemy working behind the scenes. They don’t realize that heaven and hell are real. They are being bamboozled.
So, where are we? Where is the church? We need to be interceding on behalf of those living this lie. We need to shutdown the enemy behind this. We need to be on our posts.
I challenge us to rise up and take authority (Luke 10:19). Jesus said, “Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.” Pray for Bruce. Pray for the thousands who are struggling and come against the forces of the devil.
We need the real church to stand up!
