Gender Identity ...




                                                               Confusion ...





So how about we consider a few things given all the discussion over transgender, bathrooms and the confusion that so many people are facing in their lives right now.

          How many people are confused about this and wondering what to do? Most I am sure. It seems that we are to love one another unconditionally but how do we look at this issue kindly and with compassion, yet firmly and objectively or according to God’s will at the same time?

   Let me ask you:  

          Would any of you give your children only once chance to do better or to learn something, especially something really important?           Does anyone think that God would give His children only one chance to get it right or give them only one chance at life?

So as far as our sexuality is concerned and the confusion that is happening in our world today regarding gender and identity and being born in the “wrong” body and such maybe we might try to consider or go beyond current understanding? If we study scripture, different belief systems and the human ego, among other things, we might be able to understand how this confusion as to sexuality could happen. Of course there is much more to it than that but given what I have been shown and learned over the years, it seems that this confusion is just getting worse. The boundaries are very blurry and very confusing in many ways and for many people. We don't want to discriminate against anyone but I think this is a subject that many find confusing. This confusion is very understandable and I know that there are many, many people struggling in different ways about this subject or their sexuality or other difficulties.

     As I have seen in my own life, it doesn't appear that God makes mistakes. He seems to do everything for a reason even if I don't understand what is happening or why.

    As I have also seen in my own life, if we are choosing the desires of this world, and especially including sex, the things of this world and such, over God’s will for our lives, then this can allow influences from the darker side of life because we are living for ourselves instead of for God and for others.

     If a person continually chose to have sexual relations or experiences with a person of the same sex this could then create confusion over a lifetime or many lifetimes. This unbalancing of the male and female energies and desires would manifest especially if we are choosing to follow a desire to be with someone of the same sexual orientation – i.e., male and male, female and female, female born in male body but attracted to women, and so on.


The energy in the sacral [sacred] area of the body is where our life force energy arises and this is located in the sacrum/genital area of the body. it arises in the area of the sacrum - in front of and including the sacral bone/tailbone area in the body. Some parts of the sexual organs are also connected to our third or spiritual eye and if we are focusing our energies to our own gratification then this can cause spiritual blindness. If you are not following God and serving others then this will have a dampening effect on your spiritual eye and it could be dark. Similarly, the more a person focuses on God, selfless love and serving others, the more light is in the spiritual eye. I have experienced this again and again in working with the energy in the body. 

So if a person has been continually choosing to follow their desires and sexual pleasure over God’s will and ignore the advice in the Bible about man lying with man and woman, beasts, and so forth, and doing so especially in more than one lifetime, then spiritual death can happen. This is because the dark or sin influence then starts to take over the sacral area or life force because the person is not living within God’s ways. It essentially crowds God out and lets the darker influences hold sway. Similarly, when we turn to God for help, our bodies start to allow more of God into them and the dark influence then has less sway or control over the person. The blood of Christ and obedience to God make a huge difference in our lives and our bodies. Our bodies physically change towards sin or evil when we follow or allow those tendencies and they also physically change towards love and God when we follow or allow those things into our lives.

     We may no longer put people to death for following and acting upon a desire for love and same-sex attraction and relationships but what happens is that it can result in spiritual death because our life force has been given over to self-will and to sin instead of to God according to the word of God in the Bible. Here are several translations of Leviticus 20:13 for those that want to see what I am referencing:

New International Version
"'If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

New Living Translation
"If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense.

King James Bible
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall beupon them.


These translations can be found at: http://biblehub.com/leviticus/20-13.htm


     Over a lifetime or many lifetimes confusion can be created. I have seen that God can and does heal immediately. All is forgiven when we go to God in repentance as ask for forgiveness and then follow His ways. He forgives and wipes the slate clean. However, if we continue to follow our selfish desires especially in the area of sexual love and personal satisfaction this can show up possibly as confusion, gender identity confusion, homosexuality, feeling as if one is in the wrong body and the like. If we are not following God’s will then when we die these tendencies can be built into the body for the next life in the next body. It seems that God gives us every chance to turn to Him and to do it with a clean slate when we are born but those old temptations will come up in life to see whose will we are going to follow, ours or God’s will – and to test us as well to see if we will obey God. 

If we continue to unbalance our masculine and feminine or male and female energies, this shows up as well.

    
Does this lessen any of the confusion for anyone including those that might not believe in God? It also seems that we need a healthy balance of male and female energies, along with obedience to God and sharing love with Him, to be whole. We can be born with or have too much of one kind of energy as well, depending upon our life circumstances or situation. For example, many children are being raised only by their mothers with no fatherly influence around and this might make a difference. We have lots and lots of broken families out there and this can affect our choices as well. I knew some ladies who were lesbian who were sexually abused when children and so were they born with a desire for the same sex or did this come out of a desire for love, as all of us have, or a wish to stay away from the opposite sex to be safe? How might any of these reasons affect a person's desire or choice of sexual or life partners?

Does this make any difference? 

It seems that many people who experience gender identify confusion might not believe in God, perhaps wondering why He might hurt them so or confuse them so or something else. It's easy to understand how they might feel this way. Perhaps though, consider asking God why He made you or someone else the way He did. This very confusion and suffering might then send the soul directly to God for relationship and healing, if the person chooses to go to God instead of getting angry and turning away. In my own life, God has healed many of my wounds, including sexual wounds and things that I thought could never be healed. He is amazing in this way. 

      Perhaps God is calling those with this kind of confusion to chastity and purity in their sexuality and a life including a personal relationship with Him in order to help them heal.

Maybe those who are confused still believe in God. Maybe people are just hurt and angry and confused.

Does this make any kind of sense to anyone?

We are human and we do have desires that are not always in accord with God’s will. There is evil and there is sin and temptation in this world, all to help us choose where we wish to be and whether we wish to follow God or follow our own will. Make no mistake though, there are spiritual and other consequences or punishments or pain that can result from following our own wills and ignoring God’s word and commandments. We might have more unconditional love for others now and choose to look at things in a more loving manner but the rules in the Bible, given 2,000 or so years ago, more or less, to put sinners to death, might have been given so that the tribes could understand how dangerous sin is and so that it could be stopped before it spread to the rest of the society or tribes.

I propose, based upon what I have been shown, that we do only die once, but only once to God. After a person repents and turns to God, they are redeemed and there is judgment by God. Once we turn back to God we can NEVER go back to sin or being separated from God, or we face the second death, which is by the mercy of Our Heavenly Father. It can happen and if we are being controlled by our selfish urges instead of listening to God, then we are in danger here. If we continue to want our own way and not listen to our Father then we are headed for a huge and confused mess in society, spiritual danger and possible spiritual death.


   How many people feel that we only die once as stated in the Bible or otherwise?

Here is Hebrews 9:7:

New International Version
Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,

New Living Translation

And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment,

New American Standard Bible 

And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,

King James Bible

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

http://biblehub.com/hebrews/9-27.htm


        Does the Bible say anywhere that we only live once? I know it says that it is given to man to die once but does it say anywhere that we only live one time? …

How many people believe in reincarnation or living more than one lifetime because this can be very important in our lives for many reasons, especially when it comes to our choices of sexual partners or practices? 

Everything is not always fine on the other side. I have seen so much love as to bring tears of joy to my eyes but I have also seen darkness and evil and felt the gnawing of that worm of evil in my body more times than I want to admit in paying for my own sins and those of others, as well as learning all of this to help others and to be able to tell others that Hell is real. I have seen a soul be in an embryonic state [though loved and protected] again because of what has happened in their life and choices they have made, seen dark souls ask God for another chance and seen and felt the chains of bondage being released in my own life. I have also seen them be reunited in a very strong bond and place of love.

I have been shown experiences from prior lifetimes on many occasions and shown by God that some of my suffering in this life is the result of things I have done in other lives to others, to myself and thus to Him. I have walked in my spirit body and seen things others would never want to or should see and been shown things beautiful beyond words. I know that our actions and thoughts create energy that goes out and also builds our bodies by our thoughts and what is in our hearts. I know that Jesus helps me every step of the way. I know we exist as a soul and a spirit beyond this physical body and that there is a Heaven that awaits those who follow God.

Do I want to hurt anyone’s feelings or cause pain? Certainly not but hell is real folks and it can happen to us if we are not living under God’s will or doing what we can to follow His ways. If we continue to follow our own wills and ignore God then we are just confusing more and more people and things will not get better soon. At some point God may step in and say gently, or not so gently, “enough, my children.”

If we continue to follow our own wills then many folks in this world will just become more and more confused and then laws and society will start to break down. There have to be some moral guidelines and rules and laws for us to follow. We have been given the law and the love which heals all things, as well as God’s commandments and His boundaries. The confusion and the lawlessness are what happens when we choose not to believe in God or follow His laws or love.

What do you think? Perhaps just considering some of these questions might help lessen our confusion. We seem to live in a very selfish society in many ways at this time, maybe a natural progression of the growth of society or children. Maybe we have to exhaust ourselves materially in order to realize that there is more to life and then explore our spirituality, so how can we grow from here and live within God's will and love, honor and cherish those souls that are struggling so hard with the issue of sexuality and gender identify, their confusion so much that they sometimes feel they need to be in a different body. God really did not make a mistake when He made you and knit you in the womb. From what I have seen in my own life He had very specific and great reasons for making me the way that He did. It took some time but He did and does answer my questions. I believe He would do no less for any of His children if they ask.

Maybe looking at things from a more in-depth spiritual and different view might help.

Anyone else have any ideas or thoughts in this regard that might help lessen the confusion?

If you think this idea is radical, imagine how they must have felt 2,000 years ago when Jesus said this:

King James Bible
Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

                           18 Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

Proverbs 16:18  King James Version (KJV)

 

Let’s consider very carefully the words that we use in talking, writing and elsewhere. Not to make any judgments but the LGBT movement uses the word “pride” for its movement. Consider the word “pride” very carefully if you will and think about what gets us into trouble the most in our lives. Usually some kind of pride, ego and wanting things our way.
