I recently had a vision that I was talking to a transgendered person who had just repented from their sins and had surrendered their life to Christ.

In the vision, they were experiencing so much guilt and condemnation because they had undergone hormonal treatment, gender reassignment surgery, and had a lot of body modification done to alter their chest and genitalia. They were feeling bad because they believe they have truly repented in their heart, but didn’t know if God would ever receive them or not after defiling and altering His holy temple.

I was wrestling with what to say to them because I was at a lost for words. But suddenly, it’s as if the Holy Spirit filled me with wisdom and gave me the words to say.

God had me to share with them that gender reassignment surgery, though in many cases may be irreversible, it is not however an “unforgivable sin”, and that what is more important to Him than their gender expression (how they look on the outside) is the posture of their heart (what they believe on the inside).

Regarding their irreversible body modifications, God had me to share with them the words of Jesus in Matthew 18:8-9:

“If your hand or foot causes you to fall into sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life crippled or lame than to have two hands and two feet and be thrown into the eternal fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter eternal life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.”

(P.S. This statement by Jesus is a form of exaggeration, and not to be taken literally. He’s just saying take whatever extreme precaution you must in order to avoid sin.)

If you are transgendered, and feel God leading you to repentance, detransition the best you can to show fruit worthy of repentance. Change your name back, change your gender back, work on balancing out your hormonal levels, etc. But if you’ve altered your chest, or genitalia or face, etc. to the point it’s irreversible, it’s okay. God is saying he will not condemn you. He has come to rescue you. He said you are not going to hell. Missing body parts will not keep you out of heaven. Only doubt and unbelief in him will. Jesus said in Matthew 5:29-30 that it is possible to enter life maimed and that it’s better to inherit the kingdom with missing body parts than to go to hell with all body parts in tact.

Be encouraged. It is by grace you are saved through faith. You are a new creation, no matter what you look like on the outside. Don’t worry. In the new life, you will receive a new, glorified body anyways. God loves you and receives you.
