Jesus Wants to Meet All Your Needs



"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:19) When you think riches, think rich in things, rich in being, rich in faith, rich in wisdom, rich in humbleness, rich in meekness, etc., etc. Jesus is rich in everything. And, "Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." (Psalms 37:4) (KJV) "Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom." (Luke 12:32) (KJV)

It's easy for someone somewhere to say that without telling you how. The why is easy: Jesus loves you that much He died for you. (John 3:16)

But, How?

I used this list of emotional needs: https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/9-emotional-needs-according-to-maslow-s-hierarchy

Security/Safety

Caring for you is sooo God. I really doubt how much we know cares for us and looks out for us. But, since God calls Himself your husband, and died for you, how much more will He do? Think about it: maybe you had a car wreck and thought, "well, God didn't protect me from the car wreck." What if the real truth was, the car wreck wasn't the worst thing that almost happened? What if it would've happened a few seconds sooner and you'd be dead, or left a quadriplegic or something? What if the wreck stopped you from an even bigger thing down the road? Hmmm...

My mom said she saw the Spirit of God move our car when I was kid so we didn't have a wreck on ice, or worse. I remember driving down highway 390 during a rainy day and a minivan pulled out in front of me and I swerved onto the shoulder, which was a slope into a ditch, and I made it safely to past the minivan and back onto the road. My mother said God told her to pray for me at that exact time, and I escaped a head-on collision. I could've been killed.

A cool one was on Saturday going to work, I knew my car was almost out of gas and I thought, I'll fill up after work. Went to work and totally forgot about getting gas. The next three days, I didn't even look at the gas gauge and drove to work and all over town one of those days—on empty. The tank was bone dry, and it still ran like normal. I had asked God to do something for me a few days or a week before, and He did. I saw it that Wednesday morning way below the empty mark and thought immediately, "God has to be making it run." There was no other explanation. I was a block from the gas station and feared stalling out before I got there. But, I didn't. I did laugh and say, "God, how about you keep this thing running and I never have to buy gas again." Laughing! See, God probably protects us from all kinds of evil and calamitous things we are never even aware of that could've happened to us.

God does protect you from Satan. I believe he assigns you two angels to watch over you. Then, of course, the Holy Spirit is the ultimate protector. Angels are awesome, but when the Holy Spirit resides in you, I doubt God is going to let much happen to you. Even if death is imminent, God might tell you, "it's time to go home" and give you total peace to handle your death. He did that for a man who was being stoned in the Bible. I forget the story but God gave him the power to withstand the stoning physically, emotionally and spiritually. God will be with you through life, death, good times, bad times, so-so times, okay times, ho-hum times, whatever life brings.

As for me, God is fine with me being female inside and even has made me my female self in dreams he has given me. Who else would do that but God? Nobody else on earth will accept you as Transgender as God can and will. And, since God accepts you as Transgender, who cares if other humans do? He's the lover of your soul and with Him, all things are possible. (Matt 19:26)

Understanding/Attention

Since Jesus is the perfect husband, He totally gets you. The Bible says God never tires of listening to you. In fact, God wants a relationship with you more than anything, and values that above any work you could ever do for Him. What good would that relationship be if He didn't get you and understand you as Transgender? Tell him your needs, your desires, your wants, your problems, your successes, your failures, everything.

Unlike another human, God always, always actively listens and pays attention to you. He will actively listen when you ramble on and He will always understand your pain and your joys. He already knows you are Transgender. He even knows the reason. Yes, He knows everything. If He didn't, He wouldn't be much of a God would He? Humans won't always listen to you, but God never tires of you talking to Him. He desires that kind of relationship more than anything. Jesus is the perfect husband no earthly human could ever be.

Emotional Connection

We are emotional beings, and, guess what, Jesus is an emotional being. In the Bible, it says he's been happy, joyful, angry (like the Hulk, you really don't want God angry), etc. God has emotions just like us–but He is in absolute control of his emotions. God wants love and emotional connection just like we do. Why else would God have made us in His image? The dude was lonely. And, God made a mistake doing it. The first people were like animals and God found it so sinful and perverse, he destroyed them and started over–and made Adam in His own image. He saw Adam was lonely and needed a helpmate so he fashioned Eve from his rib. Unlike the first go round with people, Adam was fully created in God's image: Adam had a house (body), a soul (mind, will and emotions) and a spirit.

I think of the Godhead in this way at times: Jesus is the body, God the father is the soul and the Holy Spirit is Jesus's spirit. It's not perfect, but, honestly, until we get to heaven, we will never fully understand how the Godhead works. We may simply be unable to imagine, or comprehend how the Godhead works. I wrote once, "God is the father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit originating from one entity." But, make no mistake, unlike Satan and his ilk, God is everywhere, literally everywhere. He's all-knowing, all powerful, and omnipresent.

Anyway, when you accept Jesus as your savior, you join with God. He makes you a new creature in Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit even seals you so when God looks at you, he doesn't see a sinful creature, but a new creature in his Son Jesus. He sees you as blameless because of Christ. Salvation is a constant–it's not this moment and few moments later–but constant. Say you are sinning when the Rapture happens–do you go if you are a Christian? Yep. God sees you as blameless because of the blood spilled from Jesus Christ as the cross.

So, when you get saved, you now have a connection to Jesus that no one can ever break. No one. Your bond with God is unbreakable, un-shatterable, forever, constant. If you further accept the Gift of the Holy Spirit (just thank God for the gift of the Holy Ghost), you are in full communion with God.

And, how does God see you?

A son, a daughter, a new creation.

But, there is more...

"And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen." (Revelations 1:6) (KJV)

Jesus is the King of Kings and you are now a king. But, it gets better. You are a "priest unto God." Yeah, you are a minister unto God. Think about that. Angels aren't ministers unto God. Angels are awesome and have no sin, but, we, the sinner crowd, are ministers unto God in Christ Jesus. The world may see us as worthless in their eyes, but God sees you as a king and a minister unto Himself. You are invaluable to God. You want self-esteem and self-worth? There it is. You're a king, baby! Only Jesus Christ is more valuable to God and the Holy Ghost. I may be worthless in the eyes of all humanity, and have been told that many times, but I am invaluable to God. Salvation is so precious even the Angels are curious about it, and they can never have that experience since they are perfect and sinless.

Yeah, let that sink in.

Connection to Community

Jesus Christ is the Husband and the church is his Bride. I know a lot of the church will probably never accept you since you are Transgender, but you are just as much a part of the church as they are–Jesus is still your spiritual husband. When you think you are alone, God is with you, Jesus is with you and the Holy Spirit is with you. But, also there's an angel or two with you. Imagine you are sleeping and it seems like no one is around. Now, imagine God is there, Jesus is there, the Holy Spirit is there and an angel or two is there. That's how it always is with you. God is always with you, He will never leave you and He will never forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5) You are connected to a community of believers, past and present, angels and God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. You will always be in a majority. (1 Kings 18:19-22)

When Elijah went to the people, he thought he was alone. But, Elisha prayed and finally Elijah saw God as the Lord of Hosts. He saw him and God as a majority! (2 Kings 6:15-17) God was in full control of the situation and even though the ungodly surrounded Elijah, God and all his servants surrounded the ungodly. Just like Elijah, you are never alone. In your darkest moment, God is there as the Lord of Hosts. You will always be connected to His community.

I was watching Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker at the end. Rey was alone, it seemed, and Palpatine and all the Sith were surrounding her. It seemed like the dark lord was in full control and Rey was all alone. Then, as the Sith crowd roared, she closed her eyes, quieted her mind and heard all the Jedi of the past tell her they were with her. This little girl, just like little David before he slew Goliath, rose up, grabbed her light saber and stood defiant before the Sith God just like David stood before Goliath. Palpatine unleashed the full power of the Sith against Rey with lightning toward her light saber and said she was nothing compared to him and said, "I am all the Sith." She was just a scavenger, a nothing, and had no power to stand against him as the Sith God. And, another light saber flew into her hand, and she said, "And, I am all the Jedi." And, she slew the Sith Lord.

Likewise, David picked up a stone, put it in his sling and threw the stone at Goliath. David's aim was true and the stone hit Goliath in the head and killed him. In that story, David was Jesus, the stone was the Sword of the Spirit and Goliath was Satan. Just like Palpatine was no match for the Jedi in Rey, Goliath was no match for the power of God in David. Satan has power, but he is a weakling, a nothing, compared to Jesus Christ. When Jesus died on the Cross and rose from the dead, Satan and sin and everything bad was defeated by God. That's why the war is always Jesus's the fight and not yours because Jesus already won. You are every bit a part of God's Kingdom, which has no end, as any other Christian.

Privacy

God wants time with you, but He won't invade your personal space. He respects your as a person, loves you as His own. Jesus is freedom from all oppression, not bondage again to fear. (Romans 8:15) God wants you to be a conqueror in Him. He wants you to be individual person not a clone, or a minion, or something else not you. He wants you to be you.

A Sense of Self

For decades, I didn't have a sense of self. God called me Rachel, even though my body is a man, in a dream and my life totally changed. If you are Transgender, God has no issue or qualms with that and will see you as who you are inside. God sees the inside, God sees your soul, God sees who you truly are. If you don't have a sense of self, he wants you to have one. As for me, I'm transgender, I'm Rachel, I have Jewish blood (on my mom's side), I am a Christian and I am a king and priest unto God. What He did for me, He'll do for you.

A Sense of Achievement

I was watching a preacher and he said, "God wants you to follow your dreams." If you let Jesus, I guarantee you He will give you ways, open doors, to fulfill your dreams. You will achieve much through Him. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13) (NKJV)

Meaning

The inevitable question: why? Why do we exist? What is the meaning of life? The answer is in Christianity. God created you because he was lonely and wanted a relationship with you. God wants you to serve Him and serve others. The Christian Life is really simple. Jesus offers you salvation, eternity with Him in paradise and lots of benefits while here on earth. Realistically, you can stay a baby in Christ, get some benefits and get heaven, or you can serve Jesus, have a deep relationship you'll never be able to have with another human like you can with Jesus and the Holy Spirit will show you things that boggle the mind.

Honestly, how much God has accepted me as Rachel has boggled my mind. Weights lifted off my shoulders and I was free to be Rachel inside without any problem with God. I really don't care what mankind thinks, only what Jesus thinks. If He's cool with me, I really shouldn't worry about much at all.

See The Christian Life post for more on how easy it is to live the life. Jesus doesn't want to add burdens, He wants to take them away.

https://www.transgenderchurch.com/2020/04/how-to-live-christian-life.html

The great thing?

God can use anyone, but the ones He uses most are the humble. God doesn't care if you are poor, uneducated, a social misfit, Transgender, or a banker on Wall Street. If you are willing to let the Holy Spirit guide your life, God will take you places you'd never get to see without Him. I promise you.

I'm Transgender and wanted to reach out to other Transgenders and God made a way. I asked Him about being a minister and He really didn't answer it yes or no. I saw the website I wanted (this one), bought it and asked God for wisdom to do it right. I just let the Holy Spirit guide me, I hope faithfully, and write sermons that can help people. I'm like, hey, God, use me. I know it will not be easy, if and when he opens a door to a ministry offline, it will be difficult, but I honestly think God really wants to reach out to other Transgenders like me, and educate other Christians that being Transgender is okay in God's book. I'm sure he already does so, but, I think God likes it when we think BIG. He thinks BIG. God did give me a dream and told me, "Thank you" after I asked Him what he thought of TransgenderChurch.com.

If you are not a Christian, doesn't this all sound good?

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

He came and died for you.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) (KJV)

There is no greater love than Jesus.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) (KJV)

Accept Him today if you don't know him.

Sinner's Prayer

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior."

Now, go and tell someone and welcome to His Kingdom.

Amen and Hallelujah.

Grace is Something Only Jesus Offers

Grace is Something Only Jesus Offers

Pillar Two of How to Live the Christian Life is all about Grace.

https://www.transgenderchurch.com/2020/04/how-to-live-christian-life.html

God's Grace is Sufficient. "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." (2 Corinthians 12:9) Yep, if you sin, His grace is sufficient. I told God 2 years ago, "I ain't worrying about sin anymore. I'm not beating myself up over it, not controlling my thoughts, anything. Don't like it, God, kick me out. I don't give a fuck." He's still around. Oh, just admit you're a hypocrite, because we all are. You can never live above sin. That's why God's grace is sufficient.

Grace is a gift of Jesus and we are in the dispensation of Grace. We are all hypocrites. God wants you to try to live holy, but you are human and will make mistakes. Repent and move on. No need to beat yourself up over it. God knows you are human. Grace is a better way.

But, there is more about Jesus and Grace. In the Stress Cure, Jamey Hammond talked about the powerful Scripture. "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." (Matt 11:28-30) (KJV)

Jesus promises you rest. Every have a great night's sleep and feel on top of the world the next morning? Jesus promises that in every aspect of your life. Rest. He also means rest from the burden of sin, but also means rest from the burden of life. Ooo, sound good?

Jamey explained the "yoke" is not the egg, but the collar farm animals wore when plowing the fields. Jesus said, "His yoke is easy." In other words, as Jamey said, "I am not here to add to your burdens." Jesus made salvation easy. Believe in Him and accept Him into your heart and you're saved. It is that simple.

In fact, I'll add further, Jesus is here to lighten your burdens, and, once you are His, He takes care of you: The Bible says, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:19) (KJV) In you are God's, He said He'd take care of you. Count on it. What are the burdens holding you down? I remember hearing this: sin is a burden and fear is its result. When Jesus takes away your sins, he also takes away your fear. "Fear Not" is said by God many times in the Bible. God never wants you living in fear. All you have to do is accept it. Let God worry about it. Live one day at a time and let God worry about the rest.

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7) (KJV) God wants you to have power, fear not, love others and be of sound mind. Salvation means you are saved, Grace means you no longer worry about sin (I"m not saying go forth a sinning...LOL), and God takes away the fear, gives you power, gives you love so you can love others and gives you a sound mind. God even says so, "For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father." (Romans 8:15) (KJV) When God saves you, you are taken as His (adoption) and He clearly says, "not in bondage to fear." Jesus came to set the captives free, not enslave you again.

When you repent, you are renewing your mind. (Romans 12:12) (KJV) Yeah, it's that simple. And, when you pray, you crucify the flesh. Galatians 5:24 says, "And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” (KJV) The flesh exalts you and exalts itself above God. The flesh are those thought opposed to God. That's the flesh. Prayer puts the flesh into submission. It is why Paul said to pray daily. 1 Thessalonians even says, "Pray without ceasing." (KJV) The more you pray, the more the Holy Spirit brings the flesh into submission. The flesh is our endemic nature. I remember reading a comic one time and it said, "I fight against my greatest enemy: myself." Honestly, aren't we always our own worst enemy? The flesh doesn't like how easy all of this Jesus makes it. But, it all is that easy.

Jesus was crucified, the only blameless man to walk the earth, and rose from the dead to take away the sins of everyone. "The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." (1 John 1:29) (KJV)

"The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep." (John 10:10-11) (KJV)

Jesus not only doesn't want to add to your burdens, and take away the ones you have, but he also wants you live more abundantly. Remember Pillar 3 in How to Live the Christian Life?: "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." (John 14:27) Jesus promised you peace. Enjoy it. It's peace amid the storms, peace amid the calm (some people love drama–but you can have peace without it), peace, peace, peace. You can have peace in poverty, in wealth, in middle class, wherever you are. Jesus alone gives you peace. Nothing the world has to offer will ever give you peace.

If you are not a Christian, doesn't this all sound good?

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

He came and died for you.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) (KJV)

There is no greater love than Jesus.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) (KJV)

Accept Him today if you don't know him.

Sinner's Prayer

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior."

Now, go and tell someone and welcome to His Kingdom.

Amen and Hallelujah.

God Loves Transgenders

Why?

Jesus gets you. He does. Like Him, we are hated by a great many people, discriminated against, and even murdered. I've read fifty percent of transgender individuals suffer sexual violence at some point in their lives. I believe many probably never tell anyone about themselves for fear of such violence and/or discrimination. Cait Jenner probably has no problem walking around since she has bodyguards and is famous, but for those not so situated, it is a tough life. Forty percent have tried suicide in their lives compared to five percent of the population. Transgender individuals suffer mental illness nearly double that of heterosexual adults.

Jesus is most certainly hated by many non-Christians and was crucified by His own people.

So, God gets you.

I was in despair the night before God called me "Rachel" in a dream. After that, I changed dramatically. God really did accept me for who I was inside. Truly, God has no problem with transgender individuals. None at all. Yes, we still have to be holy, but God accepts us for who we are. The Church predominantly does not, but God does. Some churches do, but, be careful they don't accept everything and really are wolves in sheep's clothing. God is holy and He expects us to be holy. See https://www.transgenderchurch.com/2020/04/what-is-transgender-transgender-is-when.html for more on what it means to be holy and transgender.

So, are you depressed? Suicidal? Unhappy? Feel like the whole world doesn't get you?

God gets you.

God can help you like he helped me.

God wants the best for you.

I've already posted the following, but, it is beautiful...

God Considers YOU Extremely Valuable

Everyone knows God loves them. But, do you ever ask the question: Does God like Me?

Do you?

You should.

God loves everyone. Ever heard the saying, "I love you but don't like you." Well, God loves and likes you if you are His.

He says so.

"He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the LORD was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me." (Psalms 18:16-19) (NIV)

You know how a mom will sit and look at her child for hours with loving eyes while she delights in her child? God does the same with you. Even moreso...

In fact, God even counts the hairs on your head.

"But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows." (Luke 12:7) (KJV)

Yes, it may sound like a little too much love, but God loves you so much he counts the hairs on your head.

God feeds the birds, but he values YOU way more than them.

"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?" (Matt 6:26) (KJV)

He also promises to supply all your needs.

"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (Phillipians 4:19) (KJV)

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

He came and died for you.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) (KJV)

There is no greater love than Jesus.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) (KJV)

Accept Him today if you don't know him.

Now, go and tell someone and welcome to His Kingdom.

Do You Need Healing?

I was watching Joseph Prince and his wife was telling how she was healed completely of what she had. I don't remember what it was but it was serious. This is what she did: she imagined Jesus on the Cross at Calvary and she imagined giving her ailment to Him as He hung there on the Cross. After she did this, for several weeks if I remember correctly, she was healed. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ.

Amazing trick, isn't it?

Here is the Scriptural basis for it.

"But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." Isaiah 53:5 (KJV)

In that Scripture's case, people were healed by the promise of Jesus being crucified and raised from the dead. It hadn't happened yet, but they were being healed totally by something that hadn't happened yet.

Isn't that simply amazing?

It gets better.

"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed." 1 Peter 2:24 (KJV)

In the New Testament, after Jesus was crucified and raised from the dead, we were no longer healed by the promise of Jesus's sacrifice. In fact, ready for it?, we were healed! In Isaiah, they were healed in the present tense or "are." In 1 Peter, we were healed because of the past tense or "were."

In other words, Jesus already healed you on the Cross. You just need to claim it!

Hallelujah!

No matter what you have, Jesus already paid for your healing. You just have to give it to Him by imagining Him taking it while He was on the Cross at Calvary just like Pastor Prince's wife did.

Therefore, any healing you need, from cancer to AIDS to a broken finger to even Herpes (Jesus took everything on the Cross) to drug addiction to depression to alcoholism, give it to Jesus on the Cross, let Him take it from you and be healed in the name of Jesus.

Amen.

The Stress Cure




It is my hope this video will touch you and show you how you don't need to live a stressed out life and one filled with constant drama. Jesus will not add to your burdens, but He will take them since his burden is light.

Remember The Christian Life Post?

https://www.transgenderchurch.com/2020/04/how-to-live-christian-life.html

Pillar Three

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." (John 14:27) Jesus promised you peace. Enjoy it. It's peace amid the storms, peace amid the calm (some people love drama–but you can have peace without it), peace, peace, peace. You can have peace in poverty, in wealth, in middle class, wherever you are. If you are a Christian and don't have peace, might want to look at #2 and #4, but I'll bet 2 is your problem. Money does not give you happiness or peace.

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior."

Now, go and tell someone and welcome to His Kingdom.

Amen and Hallelujah.

Transgender Q & A

Note: This is a Pinned Post and will always be on top.

What is Transgender?

Transgender is when person is a woman in a male body, or a man in a female body. Transsexual is a transgender that had transitioned to the sex they are inside.

What causes it?

It's really simple. God made men male and women female (Matthew 19:4 and Mark 10:6). He made Adam and Eve and they were perfect and without blemish, both made in God's image (Genesis 1:27).

But, sin changes things.

Usually it is the sin done to people, rather than the sin people commit, that causes transgender I believe. For those claiming to be born that way: the Bible does say the sins of the father will be punished to the third and fourth generation (Exodus 34:7). The second is generational sin. The third way is sins people actually commit, but I don't really understand the how to even attempt to explain the third one.

In my case, I was molested by a woman when I was 3 ½ years old then emotionally abused most of my childhood by my father. The rape killed the little boy I was and the female took over. I can look back and see her in pictures and in memories just trying to be heard. But, my father was cruel and emotionally abusive so I became more and more female. I remember reading a book by a female, clinical psychologist entitled "How women think" or something close to that. Anyway, she explained women, due to estrogen, look at people and try to anticipate what they need and respond accordingly through their emotions (women are nurturers). I did the same thing, looking at my father and wondering endlessly what he needed so he wouldn't hate and abuse me.

Basically, the rape made a girl and the emotional abuse was my estrogen.

The Good News

Jesus can break generational curses and heal. That is never brought up in the secular field at all. Since I know nothing about reparative therapy, I have no opinion on it. I trust in God and what He can do not men. However, God is merciful and He knows that sometimes the cure is worse than the disease (God didn't heal my Bipolar I for that very reason). For me, since I've been a girl since my rape for 47 years, healing, or restoring, me now would be counterproductive and a complete shock. I like a lot of female things. I just never saw that changing. But, for someone that did live a lot longer as a male or female, before changing, it might be the best thing for them.

How God Helped Me

In my case, God called me Rachel in a dream and it gave me complete peace. I was like, wow, God understands me. I am woman inside, hear me roar. *giggles* Yes, fellow Christians, God loves everyone and Jesus will meet everyone at the point of their need.

I could never afford transition over my life, and not sure I'd pass. Women definitely knew I was different because they assumed I was gay since I was so feminine. I actually have no interest in men, whatsoever. And, since I didn't think of women like men do, and, yes, I heard lots of men say things like, "I'd love to fuck her" or something similar and then imagine themselves doing it to the woman (they told me they did). I never thought of women that way. Yes, I've stared at boobs in my life, but my thoughts on some woman I was attracted to was, "what's she like?" or "what's it like to be her?" The only thing I ever imagined what kissing them, and that was rare. Consequently, women love having me as a confidante (but very few would ever want anything else). Even when I discovered my inner child, she was a girl.

I would love a female body, but I know it really isn't possible regardless of all the surgeries and things they have, which I could never have afforded anyway. I made total peace, thanks to God, being male physically and a female inside, although with all my rings, earrings, coordinated clothes, pink shirts and so forth definitely cast me as feminine. I just make sure I'm not too obvious.

So, in my humble opinion, before you decide Transgender is your thing, look deep inside and ask questions. Do I think like a woman? Do I give people that vibe? Do you have the heart of woman as the Bible talks about? Am I a nurturer (female) or a hunter/gatherer (male)? Are you interested in how you feel and how others feel? Both are key. Don't just believe some shrink who is paid to say, "you say you're trans, you are trans." What do you feel and what do you believe about you? Yes, I focused on women. But, if you are a female that is a man inside–much rarer than former–are you? Do you think like men do? Are you manly (not a Tom Boy)? Are you a nurturer? Are you a hunter?

Transgender is really rare and not common like they would have you believe. If you are doing it for sexual reasons, stop. That will never make you happy. Transition does not make one happy either. You have to be happy inside as a woman (or a man if your body is female) before anything else. I totally desire the female form for me, but God helped me be a peace and happy with my male body even though I am a woman inside. He can do it for you, too.

Yet, God still wants you to be Holy

Being Transgender is who you are. Even though I feel complete in who I am, I may find someone to be a partner with someday. At 51, I think that hope has all but faded. But, what would God want for me? I'm male physically so definitely a woman. Like it or not, gay and lesbian sex are sins. Being gay or lesbian is not, but the sexual act is sin.

Scripture tell us with all certainty Homosexuality and Lesbianism Sexual Acts are Sins

"For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet." Romans 1:26-27.

People have twisted Scripture to say it is not a sin, but Romans leaves no doubt the sex gays and lesbians have is a sin. And, God gives a warning about engaging in it:

"Do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! Fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, male prostitutes, sodomites, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, revilers, robbers—none of these will inherit the kingdom of God. And this is what some of you used to be. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God." 1 Cor. 6:9-11

And, of course, Jesus said marriage was between a man and a woman:

"He answered, 'Have you not read that the one who made them at the beginning "made them male and female", and said, "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh"? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.'" Matthew 19:4-6.

A man compliments a woman physically, spiritually, sexually and emotionally, and a woman does the same for a man. Jesus said so about marriage above.

Yes, some denominations are okay with it (gay or lesbian sex), but that does not mean it's okay to do. The Word of God is the authority not some denomination.

So, what does that mean for Transgenders?

If your body is male, you should go for a woman. If your body is female, you should go for a man. If you are gay or lesbian, you simply should abstain and ask God to help you. God can do anything. I've seen God do things for me that are totally awesome. I forgot to get gas and my tank was empty and I drove everywhere with it for three days before I saw it was bone dry. No way on earth it should've ran. But, God took care of it for some reason (He was showing me how much he loved me cause I had asked to do so). If God can do that, imagine how much is His unending, eternal love can change/fix/heal us inside?

What about those that have transitioned?

Oooo, good one.

I pondered this. God, if she transitioned and now has a female body...

God revealed to me that He alone makes us male and female (the Adam and Eve thing). Sin can change who we are inside, but the body can't be changed. It can be surgically altered, but it can't be changed. In fact, I would seriously ask God's opinion before you transition. If you really are a female inside, do you really need mones and surgery to prove it to yourself? Luckily, I could not afford it so I never had to ask. God helped me make peace with it (it really didn't take much–Him alone calling me Rachel made me happy).

At any rate, what God made you originally in physical form, that's it. "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." (Psalms 139:13-14).

You see, God made you male or female physically in the womb. Therefore, even if you transitioned to a female body, you would be engaging in homosexuality and that would be a sin. Same thing with a woman that transitioned to a man and engaging in lesbian sex with a woman would be a sin. Both are sexually immoral regardless of some preacher or church who says it isn't. The Bible is the authority not man. We follow Jesus not men.

That alone should make you really seek God before any transitioning (or if you have already transitioned). God can help you, just like he helped me, live in a male body even though I'm a girl inside.

But, know this:

God loves you. Transgender or not.
