Jesse James/Tiger Woods - Just the Tip of the Iceberg of the Red Light District American Culture of Today

In the news of late, Jesse James - the husband of Sandra Bullock and CEO of West Coast Choppers - has been added to the ever growing list of public figures in Red Light District America who have been found to be abominably unfaithful to their spouses and are sexual addicts. These super stars live such a life of fame which opens doors for indulgence and excess which few survive. In the end, these excesses consume them and bring devastating consequences upon themselves and their loved ones. Once this Pandora box life style is opened few ever can close it. History is full of countless actors, musicians, politians and individuals that can testify to this reality. It is only the ones who turn to the reality of Almighty God in contrition and with a contrite and humble heart that are truly able to be delivered from their sexual addictions and practice of vice (Psalm. 51:17, Matt. 11:28-30, Col. 3:17-21). This is not meant to be a degrading statement or a condescending appraisal. It is one rooted in reality, truth and love. Many who have been given over to this life style have found forgiveness, pardon and healing from Almighty God and full acceptance in Jesus Christ (Psalm 103:12, Is. 43:25, John 6:37). Many can testify to reality with great joy! (Rom. 6:6, 1 Cor. 6:9-11, Col 3:17-21, Titus 3:3-5).

Tiger Woods also - of late - has been another celebrity in the center of great controversy in light of his sexual addictions and appetites. Tiger has many exceedingly great accomplishments in his young life. One though that he has fallen short on is the discipline and managing of his own heart and the unbridled passions. We sincerely pray for Tiger, Jesse and their families at this time for healing and that they might turn their eyes to the only True Healer of the soul, the Lord Jesus Christ (Matt 11:28-30). Only He can cleanse and heal the heart. Only He can change and deliver one from the countless addictions of our fallen godless nature (Gal 1:4, 1 Cor. 6:9-11, 2 Cor. 5:17-21, 1 Peter 1:18-19). Some of God's greatest saints were once some of God's greatest enemies and sinners (transgressors) of His RIGHTEOUS (perfect) standard (Rom. 3:23).
"Some of God's greatest saints were once some of God's greatest enemies and sinners (transgressors) of His RIGHTEOUS (perfect) standard"

Tiger and Jesse are just the tip of the iceberg in today’s Red Light District American culture. They are par for the course in light of the countless others in the professional sports world and the entertainment elite industry that are part of this decadent and licentious pleasure seeking crowd. With their grand achievements and prestige their godless heart is still empty and seeking to find sustainment in the basest and unbridled passions of fallen humanity (Romans 5:12-19) that never satisfy their soul (Eccl 3:11). Countless of these in this industry can attest to that in the end. Only Almighty God can satisfy and fill the eternal void and vacuum of man. It is only when a man or woman turns to Almighty God and seeks His pardon and forgiveness that there is great healing, restoration and satisfaction (1 Cor. 1:30).

The Bible teaches; So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will never fulfill the desires of the flesh (Gal 5:16) and; Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires (Gal 5:24) also; But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts (Romans 13:34).

"Only in Christ can one be set free from the bondage of sin and such destructive passions and vices (John 8:36)"

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, 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 ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God (1 Cor. 6:9-11).

Red Light District American Culture

I hate to come across as a "square" but it is nearly impossible to go anywhere in the United States of America today and not sense the oppressive sexual culture in which we live. It is a subliminal, hypnotic barrage of immoral images, lewd language and erotic enticements that consciously and subconsciously affects our entire nation. It has gone so far that we have become a base and morally callous people. Where can anyone go today without being continuously bombarded by the “24/ 7” decadent drumbeat of this licentious orchestra? We have indeed become a “Red Light District” nation!

This hypnotic drum beat comes from all different sources of media: TV, radio, the internet, billboards, advertising, the music industry, the fashion world, Hollywood, the sports world, newspapers, magazines, tabloids, classrooms, college campuses, government,….and on and on. Every facet of life has been affected. Every nook and cranny of American culture has been permeated and contaminated with this sickening vice. Teaching and preaching the moral values and virtues that are vital to preserve a healthy society brings only hate and slander from the vast secular faction here in the United States.

The Devastation

The withering attacks and devastating fallout from this tyrannical oppressor is formidable. These include 50 million abortions since 1973 (representing a generation of Americans annihilated!), a ravished and wasted society, numberless unwed mothers and fatherless children, broken homes, psychological (mental) and physiological problems, a “red-lining” national guilty conscience (yet a nation unable to blush), a divorce rate higher than 50%, HIV/ AIDS and its related devastation, countless STD’s, rampant teen and college age promiscuity and unwanted pregnancies, increasing rapes, violence and murders, sex-trafficking, child porn and porn addiction (i.e., 70% of the total internet given over to porn in support of a 4 billion dollar-a-year porn industry), drug addictions, alcoholism, mass poverty, trillions of dollars spent for unaccountable social programs, promotion in government schools, government funding, rampant adultery, prostitution, approved red light districts, increased acceptance and approval of the mental and physiological disorder known as sodomy (homosexuality),….and on and on! Sexual addiction is the master oppressor today of Adam’s fallen race (see Romans 1:18-32, 5:12-19). Drug addiction, alcoholism and barbiturate addiction pales in comparison to this reigning despot. No nation has ever recovered from this self-indulging and self-gratifying addiction. How will ours be any different?

The Victims of the Sexual Revelation

Unfortunately, the greatest victims of this oppressive tyrant are children. These are absolutely ravished by the horrific consequences that followed in the wake of this super tsunami called the Sexual Revolution of the 60’s.

Women have also been shackled and enslaved in the repercussions from this decadent “Revolution.” There is nothing truly “liberating” about it at all. How could it be that the mothers (i.e., women) are the leading killing genocidal machines since 1973? A great number of women today in the U.S. are given over to reprobate practices of licentiousness, and have prostituted their bodies - and their humanity - to any individual in a vain attempt to satisfy their famished souls.

Women have always been a good moral barometer in a given society. When they are degraded to base lewdness and licentious practices, a society suffers greatly. When women are at their lowest estate so also is the nation.

The Master Panderer and His Game Plan

Lucifer is the despotic tyrant and oppressor of Adam’s fallen race. He fully understands his unregenerate human slaves (Eph 2:1-3; Heb 2:14-15). He is the “supreme hunter” of souls (Isa. 14:16-17; Ezek. 28:19; Luke 4:5-6; 2 Cor. 4:34; 1 Peter 5:8). He fully comprehends the fallen nature of humanity and our sensual desires, which are governed and dominated by our 5 physical senses. He knows how to manipulate, entice, bait, snare and catch his prey for his twisted will (Eph 6:11-12). He has been an “active observer” of the sins of humanity for ~ 6000 years (see Gal 5:19-21), and he knows that once immoral lusts and sexual vices have taken hold and snared his prey, he’s accomplished his task.

"What other way to destroy a nation that was founded on Godly and Biblical principles - both natural and spiritual - but from within?"

One of the Founding Fathers of our country, John Adams stated, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious (Christian) people.”

This is the master tactic in the Luciferian play book, i.e., to initiate subtle suggestions via the world’s media and to cause a vast “dumbing down” of the people and nation to a base (immoral) and relativistic, unbelieving state (Rom 1:18-32). This serves to further his evil agenda of causing people to unknowingly join his ongoing rebellion against his Creator and Lord, Almighty God (Luke 4:5-6; Eph. 2:1-9, 6:12).

This tactic was used first in the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3:1-7), then as a catalyst to bring about the divine judgment and removal of the millions in the pre-flood world (Gen. 3:22, 6:1-2). Lucifer (or Satan) corrupted and sought to destroy God’s chosen nation of Israel and thus prevent them from displaying Almighty God’s glory to the unsaved nations of the world, and from being a vessel for God’s great redemptive plan and propose for all humanity (Num. 25:1-3, 31:16; 2 Samuel 11:1-5, 14, 18:20-21; 1 Kings 11:1-13; Ezra 9:1-2; 1 Cor. 10:8). This tactic also corrupted the “heart soil” of the people of Israel for receiving their Messiah at His first coming (Matt. 12:39, 16:4). Even now this same tactic is being applied globally - as is evident in today’s current global licentious climate - to bring about the reception of Lucifer’s ultimate minion and tool, The Man of Lawlessness or the Anti-Christ (2 Thess. 2:3-12; Rev. 13). When this godless secularist and lawless (non-absolutist) individual is revealed, the whole world – now given over to total wickedness - will be ready to receive and worship the Lie of all Lies, the Abomination of Desolation (Matt. 24:11-12, 15; 2 Thess. 2:3-4; Rev.13:12).

With his entire being Lucifer hates and despises Adam’s race created in the image of Almighty God . He oppresses, exploits and uses them (Eph. 2:1-3; Heb 2:14-15) until his doom is sealed (Matt. 25:41; Rev. 20:10). It is because of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is “The Seed of the Woman” (Gen. 3:15; Matt. 1:20-23; Luke 1:30-35; John 1:14, Heb. 2:14-15, 10:4-12) that his doom is sure and his judgment final. That might be the reason for his intense hatred of the female population. In his fall and rebellion against Almighty God, the archangel Lucifer became known as the Devil (adversary) and “the accuser of our brethren,” Satan (Rev. 12:9-10).

Almighty God - Sobering Conclusion and Remedy

Just before Christ’s glorious second coming to earth to establish His 1000-year kingdom reign in righteousness, a massive global evangelization of the whole world will take place. Almighty God wants no one to perish but all to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ His Son (John 3:16-17; 1 Tim. 2:3-4).
"God’s Word states, Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? (Rom. 2:4)"

In His great mass-global evangelization effort to reach humanity, Almighty God uses His Two Witnesses, 144,000 Jewish missionaries and angelic decrees, pleading for man to repent and be delivered from the wrath to come (Matt. 24:14; Rev. 7:1-17, 11:1-13, 14:6-7)! The unrepentant attitude of the hard-hearted people during this time will only continue to worsen until their hearts attain a “diamond-like” (i.e., very hard) consistency. These will not repent to give Almighty God the glory (2 Thess. 2:10-12; Rev. 9:20-21, 16:9-11)! This will be the catalyst to lead the rebellious, demonically-controlled multitudes in the great climactic battle of all the ages, The Battle of Armageddon (Psalm 2; Isa. 10:27-34; Rev. 16:13-16, 19:11-21).

When all options have been exhausted, God in His great wrath will send His Son from Heaven to destroy this global mutiny against the sovereignty of Almighty God and His Christ (Psalm 2; Zech. 14:3-4, 12; 2 Thess. 2:8; Rev. 19:11-21).

After this global blood bath and purge of all rebellious humanity (Mal. 4:2-3; Matt. 25:31-46; Rev. 19:11-21), Almighty God will set up His righteous kingdom on earth in Jerusalem (Isaiah 11:1-10; Daniel 2:44-45, 7:13-14; Rev. 11:15).

It will take the absolute decimation of rebellious mankind to usher in God’s Kingdom and end Satan’s tyrannical reign and outworking of the lawless practices of man in this present evil world (Gal. 1:4).

God Calls Out To You

In these increasingly debauched and licentious days, Almighty God calls for all to be saved and delivered from the wrath to come (1 Tim. 2:4; 2 Pet. 3:9). Have you received into your heart and life the Savior of the world - the Lord Jesus Christ - as your personal Savior from your transgressions against Almighty God and His righteousness?

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 (John 3:16-17).

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name (John 1:12).

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me (Rev. 3:20).

The only solution to the depraved and ever-growing lawlessness of the world we are living in today is found in the Person of Jesus Christ. He is the ONLY ONE who can rescue humanity from the end result of sin and lawlessness. May you place your trust and hope in Him today. You will never be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
