Why make such a big deal about taking a stand against the gay agenda?  Why not just live and let live?  Dr. Brown shares why this is a crucial time for followers of Jesus to speak up boldly and in love, with a prophecy from David Wilkerson.

Hour 1:

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: “Do not be weary in well-doing, for in due time we will reap a harvest if we do not faint.”  That’s what the word says.  Jesus taught us to pray always and not give up.  Justice will be done, and the kingdom of God will be advanced.  Fear not, don’t grow weary; the battle is the Lord’s!

Hour 2:

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: The alarm is sounding; the wake-up call is going out through the land!  Do you hear it?  Are you being stirred?  That means there is hope, and God is getting ready to move!  That means we could be on the verge of an outpouring.  Are  you ready?

  1. I have a question. I know that homosexuality is a sin against the Lord. But is what it says in the book of Matthew fall into the same sinful category as homosexuality?

    Matthew 5:28
    But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

    If some guy has that issue and he is a Christian will that person be cast out of Heaven because they have this sin going on with him?

    I’m curious about this.

  2. Debbie, in my understanding, sin is sin so in reality we should come out against lust just like we come out against homosexuality.

    In reality none of us are sinless when it comes to sexual immorality so none of us are and better than the homosexual, some of us are just saved from that lifestyle or are “working out our salvation.”

  3. like John Owen wrote “Be killing sin, or sin will be killing you” if we are saved we will be growing in this practice, not for any brownie points or merit but for the Glory of God and a good relationship with Him. Its God at work in you willing to do whats good, so these sins will be attacked by us through His Spirit and power working in us by His grace as He wills.

  4. Thanks Cliff and Daniel.

    I tell you David Wilkerson called it.

    I like the way how Dr Brown explained that basically homosexuals flaunt their sin by parading the streets, teaching it in the school system. Plus legalizing gay marriages in some states.

    The Lord will judge all sin one day.
    It is a Christian’s responsibility to warn others about that.

  5. In terms of lukewarmness (it is on topic, since this show is about being on fire for God), could you say that “prosperous ease” [Ezekiel 16:39, ESV]is talking about “slackness”/”slothfulness” or “idleness of hands” (as KJV says)?

    Do you think that slothfulness/entitlement is a Sodomite characteristic?

  6. I just started reading a book I had ordered a long time ago and had placed it where I didn’t find it until I began cleaning.

    It’s called the Unquenchable Flame, revival that never burns out, by Sandy Davis Kirk.

    The term “the Father’s cup” came up in the first not so many pages. It’s the cup of the Father’s wrath that was put before Jesus at that garden the night of his arrest, his giving himself over to do the Father’s will.

    It’s the Father’s wrath I wanted to get a handle on because God poured out his wrath on Jesus for our sins.

    What happened to Sodom and Gomorrah was both an example of fire and the wrath of God. It wasn’t just a little bit hot was it?

    I can understand a bit about a father getting angry at the world because of sin because man was made in the image of God.

    In this world if a man gets angry because the world, or even those of his own household kept sinning against him, and he took it out on his son, we would have him arrested and put in jail,
    but Jesus accepted the worst punishment for our sins.

    But how could God be angry at Jesus?

    I always thought of how pleased God must have been to see Jesus accepting the punishment of carnal men as the way to cleanse them of their sins and win them back to God, while at the same time, partaking in his suffering because God is a God of compassion, holy and true compassion.

    I’ve been so angry at sin at times that I would shout through the windshield if I could, but it only bounced right back at me and seemed to accomplish nothing. I suppose it only hurt me. I think I only injured myself by doing that.

    I suppose God needed to vent his with-held anger at some point in time.

  7. Why not have a show totally devoted to any of the following topics day after day, week after week:

    Divorce – in the Church
    Teen Pregnancy – in the Church
    Addictions – Alcohol, Drugs, Gambling, Sexual – in the Church
    Gluttony (Obesity) – in the Church
    Slanderers – in the Church
    Gossipers – in the Church
    Disobedience to Authority (Parents, Pastor, Government) – in the Church

    The point is EVERY SIN is equally as evil in the eyes of God. And everyone, including the posters here (yes, even me) is guilty of at least one of the above topics.

    This used to be a good program to listen to if you wanted to learn more from God’s Word. Now it is just a rehash of the same material over and over. And you robots here just piously parrot and post the same old phrases and same old praises.

    It’s no wonder that people mock the title “Christian”. It has become synonymous with hater, zealot (and not in a good way), and hypocrite. If you wonder why – just listen to this show for a while, and read these posts for a while.

    Oh yeah – another great topic for a year’s worth of shows…

    Pride – in the Church.

  8. Michael, once more, you’re missing the point (and if you listen every day, you would know that we discuss all kinds of different topics — the Book of Revelation on Tuesday; Messianic Prophecy this Thursday; etc.): Gay activism is marching down our streets, into our schools, shouting aloud through the media, influencing our government and our military, and ultimately threatening our very religious liberties and even freedoms of conscience and speech.

    I write this to try to help you, not defend the truths for which I stand, and I encourage you to actually LISTEN (in which case you’d hear the scores of other subjects we address. An alarm is being sounded, and you are not hearing. May the Lord open your heart and mind.

    That being said, by all means, spend your time doing something other than listening to the show if you do not resonate with it. Grace to you!

  9. Micheal, I really don’t see anyother ministries (though I know there are some) that address these issues in such a respectful yet truthful manner. It is an issue that must be addressed as anyother of the things above must be addressed. But what you’re failing to recognize is that there isn’t a a Divorce’s bibl, there isn’t an Alcholoics bible, there isn’t a slander’s or gossipers bible but there is a “queer” bible that teaches being gay is ok. I also don’t se gossipers suing and slandering those who disagree with their Gossiping.

  10. I agree with Dr.Brown: there is a VERY HUGE difference between sins that are acknowledged as such: and a sin-lifestyle [like “gay lifestyle and gay-couplings”] THAT ARE BEING CONSTANTLY “justified” by media and the gay advocate community.

    When was the last time you saw a “Liar’s Pride Parade” ? or a “We’re PROUD of being pick-pockets and thieves Parade” ?

    Get the point ? There is an absolutely HUGE onslaught to “justify” and “make normal” the “gay lifestyle” and the practice of homosexuality. Make no mistake about it.

  11. To “Michael” in post 8: you are right in this much: ALL these sins should be exposed and dealt with in thousands of pulpits across America. but we know that many churches (as David Wilkerson has pointed out many times past, and Dr.Brown as well) MANY ‘churches’ don’t like the taboo words: “sin” “repentance” “hell” or “holiness”. … now having said that, do you think the enormous media onslaught that trumpets that “Gay is just fine” should be ignored ? hardly.

    The morning before the Japan 9.0 earthquake, the Lord woke me up very early around 3 AM and began pouring through me a message that included no less than *18 Major Areas of Sin & Offenses Against GOD in the churches* ! – I wrote it up and sent it out all over the internet and facebook to warn the churches. … most people and pastors wouldn’t go near it. sad. VERY sad.
    But GOD will have His way with His people, I can assure you He Will.
    It is important to remember: we are not here to condemn, … but to warn & to exhort repentance.

  12. I don’t live in fear of what the culture or the government or the extremists will do. When you’re living life on a fallen planet, you have to expect these things. Yeshua will be here before we know it, and things are falling into place very quickly (albeit NOT May 21st).

    Of course SIN is raising its ugly head everywhere. Of course governments are being filled with the corrupt. Of course world economies are flailing and failing everywhere. Of course the air, land and water is being ruined. Of course there are earthquakes in diverse places, famine is spreading, disaster is everywhere. What else should we expect?

    How do I deal with it?

    2 Timothy 1:7 (King James Version)

    “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

    Dr Brown, I did very much enjoy the program on Revelation this week – it was informative, enlightening and reminiscent of what the show has been like in the past. The Messianic Prophecy show was also a breath of fresh air.

    I could not help but read between the lines in your final statement. “That being said, by all means, spend your time doing something other than listening to the show if you do not resonate with it. Grace to you!” – that seems a polite way of saying “If you don’t agree with what I’m saying, go somewhere else. We only want positive posts with people who agree with me here.”

    By the way – I’m not gay, liberal, a Democrat, ignorant of what is going on in the culture, or blind. I just believe in fighting battles I can win, and this isn’t one of them.

    Guess I’ll go back to listening to Michael Youssef. He teaches the Word to people who want to hear it.

  13. Daniel,
    About the question in #6, when I read the verse I did think about a lukewarm spirit. God is very much against that attitude, comparing the things he mentions in the verse, to a very close relative to the city of Sodom.

    That’s what it certainly looks like to me. It seems the people were being compared that way and God warned them of what happened to them.

  14. Michael,
    That wasn’t what was being said at all; Dr. Brown simply said,

    1. You’re free to listen to any other program that more suits you:
    2. you don’t have to torment yourself listening to my program – a program you disagree with; and
    3. that has no chance of changing for you or anyone else, since it’s commanded of the Lord Jesus Christ.
    4. May God’s grace work on you to prepare you for the day of judgment [that you might be saved].

    It’s simple.

  15. Ray,
    The thing is… that trait seems to be an American one; sadly, it is also one that I exhibit… it is a killer. Just lookin’ for prayers.

  16. Debbie,

    Concerning your original question, I would have to say that a forthright “yes” is an unfair response. Jesus was making the point that sin begins as a thought, and our thoughts are the birthplace of our actions. I’m the first chapter of his epistle, James writes:

    “(12) Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. (13) Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. (14) But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. (15) Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.”

    Clearly the implication here is that the temptation itself is not the sin, but rather the submission to that temptation. Was Jesus not tempted by Satan in the wilderness?
    When a man or woman does or feels or thinks anything sinful, it is that person’s responsibility to approach the Lord with repentance, to pray, to seek God’s face, to ingest the Bread of Life which is the Word to turn away from that behavior or thought process, and to strengthen one’s self and allow one’s self to be strengthened by the Holy Spirit.

  17. **Posting from an iPhone is like begging for typos. “I’m” clearly not an epistle. “In” was the word I was meaning to use. Also, in my last paragraph, I meant to put a comma after “Word [of God], but instead of hitting “o,” I pressed “Done.”**

  18. In my considered observation: Dr.Brown is being very courageous AND OBEDIENT to confront the homosexual-agenda in this country. There is also good reason to believe that homosexuality is often a demonic stronghold that leads to reprobation. it is often a very serious perversion of the entire personality and brings a soul in great opposition to a Holy GOD who warns of this sin in no uncertain terms.

    For the record.

  19. Michael,

    I may not have time to continue the interaction here, but since you’re taking the time to post, let me reply briefly, also for the benefit of all the others who post and read here.

    First, it’s important that you don’t judge others by your own experience. In other words, if God called you to do one thing, it doesn’t mean He didn’t call me to do something different.

    Second, I will obey God whether I see “success” or not. My calling is to be a witness and a voice, and God will hold me responsible for that. I cannot relate to the mentality of, “Why bother? This is a war you cannot win.” That’s what people told William Wilberforce!

    Third, everything I do is tied in with the hope and prayer for awakening and revival. With God, all things are possible!

    Fourth, I am blessed by everyone who listens to the Line of Fire broadcast, and I am jealous for the wellbeing of every listener. So, if someone is not being edified by the content of the show — content that I pray about and that I take very seriously — then, rather than them being frustrated or disappointed, they should listen to other broadcasts. God has called many different voices to meet many different needs in the Body.

    Finally, I would encourage you to examine HOW you are hearing. As you (or, should know), I devote one day a week to moral and cultural issues, and many weeks, that day is not focused on homosexual issues. Yet in your mind, it’s the only thing I talk about. Perhaps you are not hearing accurately because of your reaction to this issue? Perhaps you need to ask again, “Is there something I’m missing?”

    I don’t have the slightest doubt that in the coming years, many believers and leaders will grieve over their failure to speak up and speak out when they had the opportunity, but by then, it will be too late to undo the damage to this generation. By God’s grace, I will not be guilty of this sin.

    Again, grace to you!

  20. Wow..thought provoking comments….I usually find when I start down the road of “something someone said” bothers me..if I go to the Lord in prayer about “me”..He always shows me what He wants me to know about “Me”….just saying

  21. Whoa, I’ve broken that one about staying on topic many times — thanks for the longsuffering, lofradio.

  22. To Michael,

    I’m not sure if you’ll read this but just in case. You shouldn’t allow what Dr Mike Brown preaches about homosexuality being a sin bug you so much. Why does it bug you so much?

    Why you calling folks a robot just because we agree with the word of God about homosexuality being a sin? I personally follow the Lord not man.

    This anger is coming from somewhere else. What is the deeper issue Michael?

    Share only if you feel comfortable enough too.

    Take Care!!

  23. @DAN1EL – I am saved… thanks for the comments though.

    @DEBBIE FRASER – Not angry, just tired of the subject. Gays aren’t going away, nor is GLSTN (or whatever it is).

    For the record, I also agree that homosexuality is a sin. So is divorce, yet it is sanctioned by every state in the union, and few in the Church speak as fervently against it. So are a number of other issues, which I mentioned previously. I do get the fact that the “queer” are on the rampage right now. But there are MANY things sanctioned by the laws of the land, taught in our schools and crammed in our faces at every turn. It is our responsibility to teach our children in our homes the values we want them to have. If that means pulling them out of school, so be it.

    I also fully understand the whole issue of free speech both for “THEM” (insert your favorite bugaboo there) and for US (insert your favorite championed cause there). I also don’t want my rights as a citizen abrogated by the government, and I fully agree that we need to stand up and speak out.

    That being said, the way you win the conscience of the people is to begin to find common ground and dialogue, establish a friendly rapport, and then, and ONLY then, begin to share your differences in a way that is non-threatening. That goes for both parties. You can’t prove to the opposition (in this case, the gay community) that you have a different and better way by behaving in the same aggressive manner you are objecting to. Of course, when you’re dealing with the Enemy (HaSatan, not the gay community), you’ve got to watch your back. Wise as serpents, harmless as doves, Yeshua said.

    I just don’t think the Messiah would use the same approach. And I think the constant rant does an injustice to Dr Brown, his show and the believing community as a whole.

    This is the only issue I have ever felt so strongly in disagreement about with the folks in this community, and I apologize for having possibly offended anyone including Dr Brown by exercising MY right to an opinion and free speech.

    The fact that I have to defend myself for having a difference of opinion is in itself telling. Also the fact that because I do not agree, it is automatically assumed that I am angry or a non-believer. And THAT is why I said certain folks were being robots, not because they agree with the Word of God.

    I hope that clears things up a bit. I do appreciate your concern and friendlier approach. I will continue to listen to Dr Brown’s show because I enjoy the Messianic and prophetic teachings, as well as the debates with men like Shmuley Boteach and others.

    Thanks.

  24. Your a good guy Michael. It is good to be very honest with your feelings. My Mom told me never to hold anything in, let it out she said. Let everything out. 🙂

    I see both sides to Dr Brown and your approach about reaching the gay community. I agree it is a spiritual battle, but also I believe we all have a choice in life. The gays are choosing to be this way for some psychological reason and from giving into temptation from the kingdom of darkness.

    Joshua 24:15
    Choose this day who you are going to serve.

    Hang in there Michael.

  25. Michael, you didn’t offend me at all, and you are certainly entitled to your perspective. The Line of Fire is dedicated to being a voice of moral, cultural, and spiritual revolution, and that includes my calling to reach out and resist with regard to homosexuality. My only concern is that you fail to see how your silence re: gay activism will ultimately affect your ability to evangelize the homosexual community — and, to repeat, if you don’t speak up today, you’ll have to apologize to your kids and grandkids tomorrow. This is no “rant,” Michael. This is a serious warning from the Lord. I do pray you’ll take heed. With that, I’ll be dropping out of the discussion here — and again, grace to you!

  26. I personally believe the radio broadcasts are getting better.

    I believe Dr.Brown is a man of God and is doing Gods will.

    Dr.Brown has been a great help to me with my walk with the Lord through his radio,tv broadcasts and his books.

    God is showing us just how immoral are society has become and that He is are only hope.I thank God is telling us we need to get up and go about His work.I believe one of the persons He is using for this purpose is Dr.Brown.

    People today seem to believe they are good and accepted by God no matter how they are living.They are told by many that there is many ways To God or that God is to loving to ever send them to hell.They are told scripture is out dated and is not the infallible word of God or they interpit scrpture to suit there life style.There are many other lies from satan as well.

    In order to come to repentance they need to Know and be Shown thier sin.They need to know they are sinners and thier only hope is the Lord.

    God is are only hope and we need to go about His work.We all need to reach out to the lost.I believe this is what Dr. Brown is doing and doing in a great way.The Lord is using him in a great way,to not only show us the immoral decay of our society but to reach the lost and to encourge the brethren to do the same.
    Please excuse me if I am off subject.

  27. Hey guys, thanks! I’m a work in progress, and I appreciate your patience.

    I admire people who can step up to the plate and evangelize. That’s not something I’ve been courageous enough to do. I struggle along in my own walk enough that I don’t feel qualified to speak to anyone else about their sin.

    I guess I can understand Dr Brown’s point of view more clearly now.
