Function: noun    Etymology: Middle English, from Old French sodomie, from Late Latin Sodoma Sodom; from the homosexual proclivities of the men of the city in Gen 19:1-11

Rom 1:18-32   NKJV     God's Wrath on Unrighteousness
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

Rev 21:8 AMP    But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage and the cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)--[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death. [Isa 30:33.]

Rev 21:8 NKJV   But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."


The Profile of a Person Who has a Perverse Spirit
Mary Garrison
Ch 19  From her book: The Keys to the Kingdom are Binding and Loosing Knowledge

Manifestations
A PERSON WHO HAS A PERVERSE SPIRIT…
He will not do what another desires or requires
He will do the contrary thing to what is expected of him
He is petulant: frets against God and parents.
He is stubborn
He is unreasonably set against right, reason & authority
He is willfully intractable
He is wayward, disregarding morality and duty
He is self-willed
He is unruly
He is irritable
He is unthankful.
He professes wisdom, but is a fool in reality
He TWISTS the truth into a lie
He is lustful and unclean with Unclean Spirits
He backbites, witty and quick cutting remarks that are unkind and cruel to others
He is without understanding
He is a covenant breaker
He is without natural affection
He is implacable:
   Without mercy, forgiveness, grace, kindness, leniency, pity, pardon, compassion,
   Forbearance, unfeeling, and inconsiderate for others

Help lies in a true conversion and decision to make a total commitment to Christ – BINDING the perverse spirit, and CASTING HIM OUT !  The person should be filled with the Holy Spirit.  He must submit to God, constantly resist evil thoughts, daily study the Word and pray.  This is the only help for those involved. God will forgive those who have honestly confessed their sins to Him in true repentence.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 gives this assurance to those who are forgiven:
“ Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God ? Be not deceived: neither FORNICATORS, nor IDOLATERS, nor ADULTERERS, no EFFEMINATE, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor THIEVES, nor COVETOUS, nor DRUNKARDS, nor
REVILERS, nor EXTORTIONERS shall inherit the KINGDOM of GOD.
And such were some of you: But YE ARE WASHED, BUT YE ARE SANCTIFIED, BUT YE ARE JUSTIFIED in the name of the LORD JESUS and by the SPIRIT of Our GOD.”

What shall we do to release this person who has REPENTED and is SEEKING deliverance ?

1.Try the spirit by it’s fruit
2.Bind the PERVERSE spirit before God
3.CAST him out !
4.SPEAK DESTRUCTION to the spirit’s evil fruit.

Then do a bit of binding and loosing to counteract the evil fruit.

SPEAK DESTRUCTION                                BIND THE FRUITS TO THE

How the Seducing Spirit & the Perverse Spirit ministers to a Homosexual

I am not qualified to know or understand what dark circumstances happened in a person’s life to cause him to become a homosexual. I do not know what terrible wound was dealt to that human spirit to cause a gaping open hole in it that would not heal.  It festered to the extent that this lonely soul would withdraw for a while from what he would consider to be the ways of life.  But I do know that this has happened to him, because the Lord of all the Universe has showed it to me.

I am highly qualified to write about what I DO know to be true.  I do so in the hope of ministering healing truth to those who are injured in their spirit, and have turned for hurtful reasons to a homosexual way of life. The truth is very important to those who are to receive this ministry because it  is the key that will unlock the door that will let them go free.   Please remember, as I present this truth, all good salve tends to sting a little as it is applied to open wounds.  So STAND still for the entire application, no matter how much it smarts. For it is coming straight from the heart of a loving Father with a healing hand extended to the homosexuals.

First, I am going to tell you some things about homosexuals that you will probably be very surprised to know. He will witness that they are true, but he may not be aware of the details.  Here are some true facts:

1.He was created an equal human being in the likeness of God. Yes, the Father of all spirits put within him/her a clear understanding of the invisible things which HE made. He was born with  a built in knowledge of God’s eternal power and Godhead. He probably has never realized how valuable he is to the Creator.  Perhaps many times he cried out from the dregs of despair, “ Why?” And he needs this true answer: Before the foundations of the earth were laid, Father God longed for children.  He created all in His image for the express purpose of fellowship with them.  Because of this purpose He put within him an intellect with spiritual powers and capacities of choice after His Own likeness, so that he could be a fit companion.  He created man for His OWN pleasure…Rev 4:11.

2.But there is another in the picture – Satan.  He knows man’s value to God.  He desires to turn him against God. So he has laid certain snares that he has fallen into.  He may think he has become a homosexual on his own, with no outside help, but another fact I am about to present to you will reveal the extent of outside influence involved in the homosexuals’ present predicament.   He is truly in a cell without bars. He is in a cell – but there is a key. And it will let him out !  But only the truth, if he receives it, will free him.  Remember TRUTH is the only key.

3.Here is how it happened:  Two highly trained emissaries were sent from Satan with a specific mission.  A SEDUCING spirit was to do his job first, and if he succeeded, he would call in one stronger than himself, a PERVERSE spirit, who would take over and bring him to his final state of imprisonment.

           The seducing spirit has a certain strategic plan.  He knows the victim has within him ability to know the right way God has ordered things. This knowledge is seated
           in a part of the body we call the conscience.  So naturally the main attack by the Seducing spirit will be waged directly against the conscience.  The very first blow by
           that spirit was to “burn” the conscience, to “sear” it with a hot iron; to cauterize it,  to render it unable to function.

It was only after the victim submitted his free will to participation in unseemly acts which are not convenient, but unnatural, that the Seducing spirit was able to succeed in inflicting this terrible wound upon the victim, because at the first few submissions, the conscience convicted him, and God manifests His glorious creation – male and female, both having their natural function.  And , because the victim did not like to RETAIN GOD in his built-in-knowledge – choosing to serve the creature more than the Blessed CREATOR, GOD, for this cause, gave him up as He would not intrude upon the free agency of choosing whom he would serve. When he “gave heed” to obey the seducing DEMON, only then could the demon put the branding iron to the conscience. After the mission of the seducing spirit has been successfully completed, the PERVERSE SPIRIT has moved in, and is ready to begin his evil task.

A.Now , he also has a plan and will waste no time in putting it into action.  His first work is to make a hole in the human spirit.  How did he do it?  Was it an abusing father he used ? Was it terrible rejection by other males? He alone knows.  But I am telling you the human spirit WAS DEALT A MORTAL BLOW.  No matter how it was accomplished, it was done.
B.Now – as even a wounded animal will be dangerous and unpredictable, this terrible wound becomes corrupted, and causes this wounded human spirit to:

1.rebel against God
2.fret against and hate God
3.Dishonor their own bodies between themselves to strike out at God
4.Become disobedient to parents
5.pervert the Gospel or Truth, twisting it to Satan’s advantage.
6.Make an all out surrender to wickedness, eventually causing one to be despised by themselves and others

Finally, the PERVERSE SPIRIT will bring the victim to this point: “Even though they know the judgment of God, that they who commit such things are worthy of DEATH, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them, that do them.”  - to the subverting of others.  Because homosexuals have rebelled against God’s righteous order, to pervert it, it is necessary to learn that order, and be willing to totally accept it as right, ever seeking to know and walk upright before God.

         So now I bring you to the GOOD NEWS…

There has been a way of escape made for the victim. Help lies in a TRUE CONVERSION and decision to make a total commitment to Christ – binding the seducing spirits and perverse spirits and casting them out .  CALL upon the name of JESUS. “ For God so LOVED the world, that He gave His only Begotten SON, that whosoever believeth in Him should NOT perish, but have everlasting life.   For GOD sent NOT His Son into the world to CONDEMN the world; but that the world through HIM might be saved.”

“ Behold the LAMB OF GOD, which taketh away the sin of the world.”

When we acknowledge ourselves to be sinners, and take Jesus Christ as our Saviour, God gives us a new nature. We are born from above.  “ Verily, verily I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of GOD.”  By our acceptance of Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, we receive eternal life, for, “ As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the SONS OF GOD, even to them that believe on His name. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.  Verily, Verily, I say unto you, he that heareth My Word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but …IS PASSED FROM DEATH UNTO LIFE.”

Now, that YOU have heard this Word…would YOU say to JESUS, “you have suffered in vain for me…NO, THANK YOU?  CHOOSE YE THIS DAY.   CHOOSE LIFE.
“ Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God?  Be not deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the KINGDOM of GOD.  And such were some of you; but , ye are washed, but yea are sanctified, but ye are justified in the Name of the LORD JESUS, and by the Spirit of our GOD.”

SUCH MERCY !!!
