2 Corinthians 6:17,
"Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you."
It is time for me to say good bye to the National Football League. I have been a lifelong fan and have made every excuse known to justify my interest in it, but before the Lord Yeshua, my Creator I must say adios.
This past weekend, during the annual draft I saw something so disturbing that it brought me to a decision that I kind of knew was coming, and I make it now. Though I am sure there have been numerous homosexuals who have played football before, what is going on now brings me to this moment of decision. My choice is not about homosexuality, per se; but it is about the Sodom and Gomorrah direction our civilization is heading toward and I will depart off this train right now, if you please. I cannot, and will not put it off any longer: I must repent and renounce my following the sport of professional football as a casual, and sometimes, as a huge fan. My lifelong interest is well known to those around me and I gladly throw it away now because it is refuse. The other sports I've followed are in line for departure too but as to the NFL..... no mas..... get thee behind me!
The crux of the matter is this: The New World Order may force its demonic agenda on people in our society, but those of us who claim to know God's Word and walk in the Spirit of Yeshua must come out of Sodom and Gomorrah, especially when satanic values are thrust right in our face. How can we compromise? Not by any standards we know from scripture. At every level of society we are being forced to make decisions whether we will participate or walk away from activities that we know would offend our Lord. Many people have to choose between working their jobs or being forced into devilish policies they know are ungodly and wrong yet will allow them to keep working. Recently, many of us have seen the movie, 'Gods' Not Dead', showing the pressure put on young high school and college students to openly deny Yeshua or face consequences that would hurt their futures. At the end of the movie, in the credits, you can see the many court cases where the actual plot of this movie is happening in real life. We, those choosing to walk with Messiah according to His Word, are being pushed, pushed and pushed on almost every level, every day and we must turn at some point and say enough is enough. For me, after witnessing the 'spirit' of the world's media for the past couple of days, I'm choosing to follow Adonai. I renounce following the National Football League. I will choose life and not death.
During the NFL draft last week, instead of the normal banter on who picked who and who did well, the headlines were all about a 6th round draft pick from Missouri who came out publicly last year to promote his preference for men over women. From the headlines a person could conclude that this linebacker had found the cure for cancer or something. This is a brazen strategy in the media that is very planned and very contrived. Could he tackle? Could he block? Doesn't matter. He is being hailed for his behavior that excludes God and His people and the satanic media has blown it up before the nation making him a celebrity. Because this is the plan of the New World Order, to bring about an anti-Messiah world, this young man's 'coming out' was somehow treated as if he were Rosa Parks not giving up her seat on the bus. First of all, I think this is an insult to real victims of prejudice everywhere, but what do I know? Secondly, what are the young to think? Innocence for our children again has been thrown out the window. As prophesied, the media are guilty of calling evil good, and good evil. The innocent young in our society again get a warped view of values and perversion looks normal. The fact that they made this player to look like Paul Revere riding his horse for the cause of freedom is really over the top and disconcerting. They used to tell us that you 'can't legislate morality' yet they want to impose their 'immorality' on us poor slobs who simply wanted to follow football. No mas! This trend is dangerous and destructive. I desire light and not darkness.
I am sorry it has taken me this long to see how far down the slippery slope we have slid but here we are. I can no longer sit by and pretend that something not about sports is afoot. Every segment of society is in the war we believers talk about often and now the front lines have become the spectacle known as the National Football League. See ya. I'm out of here. I don't have any plans for Super Bowl Sunday yet, but I'm open to good ideas.
