Arianna Armour is using social media to reach millions of people with the message that God can “remove homosexual desires and gender dysphoria” for individuals who are battling with their identity.
Armour shares that God set her free after she had lived as a lesbian for 14 years and then as “James” under a male identity. She is now on a mission to share her experience with the LGBTQ community.
“There are people who need me,” she explains. “There are people out there who need to hear what I have to say.”
Armour was born to drug-addicted parents but adopted in 2005 by a Christian family. She came out as a lesbian when she was seven years old, and despite growing up in a church, she says she did not know Jesus.
“I identified as LGBTQ for 16 years. “I was a lesbian for 14 years and a female to male transgender for 2 years, but I also grew up in a religious Christian family,” she says in one video. “You go to church once a week, put on your Sunday best, listen to the pastor, make small talk, and then go home and live your life however you want for the next six days.”
Arianna revealed that she finally abandoned Christianity.
“Everyone was fake and cruel, and I thought God despised me and would send me to hell,” she says on social media.
Arianna also suffered from anxiety, sadness, and self-hatred.
“‘Why did you make me a girl?’ I asked God.” Why couldn’t I have been born as a boy? This was my first encounter with the Jezebel spirit. Because the enemy couldn’t prevent my birth, he had to try something else. “From a young age, he sent demons into my life,” she says in an internet video.
Arianna claims that at the age of 17, evil spirits had convinced her that God had made her a female by mistake. “But God doesn’t make mistakes,” she realizes now.
But it was during that period of confusion that she decided to become “James,” and she injected herself with testosterone and bulked up at the gym, according to Godreports.com.
“The devil stole my identity from me,” she says. “I was still suffering in sorrow through it all.”
“I was completely lost. I felt depressed and anxious. I was on medication. In another video, she states, “I was doing anything and everything to cope with everything that I had been through.” “Drugs and booze. I was doing everything.”
Everything changed in 2019 when she was invited to The Supernatural Life in Altamonte Springs, Florida.
“When I met Jesus, I was still a transgender man.” This occurred in 2019. I had a strange experience, strange things happened, and I realized I needed to get to know Jesus. “It’s not religion, but Jesus,” she says. “So for an entire year, I was pursuing Jesus while still being trans.”
Armour was praying, spending time with God, and reading the Bible at that moment.
“It all came down to making a choice,” she adds. “I have decided to follow Christ.”
In September 2020, Armour surrendered her life to God.
“I am prepared to be free of this thing that has stolen my identity.” I’m ready to be who I am because God made me for a reason, and I’m tired of looking at my body and thinking it’s a mistake. “I’m sick of walking around with my head down, hating myself,” she stated in 2020.
On TikTok, millions can hear Armour deliver hard-hitting realities. Her most recent message stated that, while there are LGBTQ persons who seek God and religion, her personal experience has taught her that you cannot be LGBTQ and Christian.
Armour writes that while she was “James,” she would study the Bible, attend church, and pray, but she did not consider herself a Christian, but rather an LGBTQ person looking for Jesus.
“Why? Because I wasn’t apologizing. I wasn’t denying myself anything. “I wasn’t following Jesus; I was just looking for Him,” she explains.
“I loved Jesus, and I believe you can be LGBTQ and love Jesus at the same time.” I think that you may be a sinner who loves Jesus, but not a sinner who is a sincere Christian. I don’t believe you can be LGBTQ and Christian because a Christian does not declare, “I believe.” A Christian is someone who practices what they preach. A Christian is actually a disciple of Jesus Christ,” she continued.
“Jesus wasn’t telling us to go on living our immoral lives and everything would be OK… What was the aim of His death? It’s not okay, and He tells us all, homosexual and straight, to repent of our sins,” she continued.
“I chose to truly follow Jesus, and I gave up the LGBT lifestyle,” she explained.
