As we recall, Bishop T. D. Jakes has been in the spotlight with President Barack Obama and we feel he knew about his support for gays and lesbians all along. Many of us were already upset about President Obama's prior support for the gay and lesbian community and we are surprised many black churches are finally upset about his decision. This same-sex marriage public announcement is really nothing new, because we were already alarmed about previous news that informed us that he allegedly wanted homosexuals to be able to marry in the military. Therefore, President Obama already had us praying and Bishop T. D. Jakes should have denounced his support for gays and lesbians, when we all learned about it. Bishop T. D. Jakes is President Barack Obama's spiritual adviser, according to the Apostolic Friends Forum and we agree with the posts, he should resign from his position and no longer be President Barack Obama's spiritual adviser, if he agrees with God's Word that opposes homosexuality.
Possibly, this news of Bishop T. D. Jakes not yet publicly denouncing President Barack Obama could be a clear sign he is not called to preach. He maybe gifted as movie producer, but to preach, absolutely not. Because any real man or woman of God will oppose sin before the nation without shame without hesitation. If any minister is ashamed of God's Word, then they are ashamed of Jesus Christ. In Mark 8:38: 'Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.' This simply means that although, we may receive a good sermon here or there from Bishop T. D. Jakes or any of the other celebrity preachers in the black church, he and none of the others may not be living what they preach, they are just what they are called, celebrity preachers. In fact, what did the Bible tell us about false prophets in sheep's clothing? In Matthew 7:15, 'Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.' It is so scary, we are seeing a lot of these preachers in the black church expecting a huge following to yet sit in their pews, generously give their tithes and offerings that supports their lavish lifestyles, but they have not yet publicly denounced sin before the nation. Children of God, we cannot expect of these celebrity pastors to publicly denounce the President of the United States if they were silent after he previously announced his support for gays and lesbians to marry in the military. Furthermore, we think many of these pastors in the black church are very gullible, because if many of them have been mainly preaching the prosperity gospel for the past 20 years, they will be less likely to publicly denounce President Barack Obama's same-sex marriage agenda and preach against homosexuality. Their anointing seems to have gone, they do not seem to have it like many black preachers back in the day before the 1990's decade. They failed to recognize that always preaching about having nice homes, taking extravagant trips and driving Bentleys could never prepare them for such an evil time as this. Many of these preachers whom have changed their churches into multimillion dollar corporations are just motivational speakers whom have turned God's House out into a place for capitol gain. The black church has lost its' anointing and that same anointing does not just heal diseases and raises the dead, but it also shakes up demons whom rise up against the body of Christ, no matter who they are. The Holy Ghost is the One whom is supposed to be guiding these preachers of any race to take authority and bind demonic forces, but after so many years of converting the majority of black churches into mega ministries, they have lost that power.
If Bishop T. D. Jakes, along with other well known preachers within the black church never publicly denounce President Barack Obama's same-sex marriage agenda, we as the true children of God must yet fast and pray. We must continue to denounce sin while winning souls to Jesus Christ. We cannot put our confidence in man, because as our Word tells us, they will fail us and in this case we cannot expect to ever trust alleged false prophets just because of their prominent status. In Philippians 3:3, it says: 'For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.' Let us just recognize there are no weak men or women in the Kingdom of God and if these preachers in the black church or any other church refuse to publicly denounce President Barack Obama's support for same-sex marriage, then we must no longer support their ministries nor pay any attention to their sermons, but just pray for them.
