Individuals who formerly identified as LGBTQ and left the lifestyle to follow Jesus are declaring a “rainbow revival” over their community.
Approximately 200 gathered at the Sylvan Theater near the Washington Monument for the Freedom March on June 5 to celebrate those who surrendered their formerly LGBTQ lifestyle to follow Jesus. After three hours of sharing testimonies that could only come from the miracle-working power of Jesus Christ, those gathered marched from the Sylvan Theater, around the pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial and back.
While sharing her testimony, one woman spoke of how in her early teenage years, because of a “pile of brokenness” in her heart, she started to “pursue” alcohol, Ecstasy and getting in trouble with the law.
“I had no clue who I was,” she says. “All I knew was that I had a lot of broken pieces on the inside, and I didn’t know how to put them back together.”
She continues, “I didn’t know … whether or not I would always have a void inside.”
But what she learned was this: “If you don’t allow the Lord to heal your brokenness, it carries with you.” And only when she discovered for herself what it means to find her identity in Christ rather than the useless pursuits of the world, did she realize that “God comes to shake us up and say, ‘No, My love. You may have been born this way and lived this way, but I need you to be born again so that you can live again.'”
She shares how her four years of being gay and the following six years of being bisexual were just ways she was trying—and failing—to grab at her identity. From this experience, the Lord showed her how she was to encourage others struggling with their identity:
“For anyone who is searching for identity, it’s already written in your DNA; the Lord has crafted into the fibers of your DNA who you are.”
She declares, “We are not this flesh. We may dress it up, clean it up, look nice … But at the end of all of this, what matters is how we live, and our soul will carry on. Will you allow the Lord to cleanse your soul and show you who you are outside of what you feel?”
