Romans 1:24 “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25. Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26. 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: 27. 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 recompence of their error which was meet.”
What doesn’t the Supreme Court understand about this passage? We have been witness to the degradation of our society even further by a majority of 5 justices who blatantly mock Almighty God and His standard for the foundation of any civilization through the building block of its society, the family of one man, one woman bearing and raising Godly children. But the Supreme Court defiantly rewrote in a 5-4 decision their ignorance or blatant stupidity what has been the norm for generations. It is reported that 60% of the people of this country and including many states have voted in favor of DOMA in their states, or a form of the “Defense of Marriage Act”, just to be overturned by judicial tyranny. This latest by the “supremes” ruling is just another example of this judicial tyranny and is now the law of the land, because “they say so”. Who do they think they are by mocking God? Who do the proponents of this immoral act think that they can thumb their noses at God and get away with it?
I saw the dancing in the streets of men and women congratulating each other on obtaining what they had envisioned for this country, and that is a complete disintegration of Biblical marriage. Be not fooled, my brethren, this is NOT about marriage per se, but an in your face desire to destroy Christianity in this nation and run God out of society. These who ruled by the lawless one, Satan, the devil in their lives, only want to revel in their unrighteousness and sinful lifestyles and Christianity stands in their way.
1:32 ‘Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
I remember one totally butch looking lesbian that let the cat out of the bag on an interview on TV, when she answered what was the movement’s agenda on marriage. She said that it was not about marriage, as they wanted to destroy the institution of marriage, so they can have sex with whatever, or whomever they wish, without constraint. That admission to me, says that they want free reign to be as promiscuous with whatever/whoever they wish to have sex with, be it man, under age children, women, horses, donkeys, or a duck. Yes, sex with animals and bestiality and, yes with your small children. They wish to destroy biblical commandments pertaining to righteous living and obedience to Almighty God. It is Satanic in its origin and a product of the “father lies” the fallen angel, Lucifer.
In all of man’s history, nothing is more of an abomination in God’s sight than the sin of homosexuality. Men and women have sinned against God with their bodies and engaged in immoral acts that are outside of the institution of marriage since the beginning of time from the Garden of Eden. Marriage is a sacred covenant relationship that depicts what God will do when Jesus returns for His bride and is joined to her, as a man would take a virgin bride. God ordained marriage as a holy act of total surrender of one person’s life to another person under God’s blessing. Ephesians chapter 5 talks about this relationship that is a picture of what God plans for His people;
v.25 “ husbands love your own wives, as also the Christ did love the church, and did give himself for it,
v.26 that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it with the bathing of the water in the saying
v.27 that he might present it to himself the church in glory, not having spot or wrinkle, or any of such things, but that it may be holy and unblemished;……’
v.30 “because members we are of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones;
v.31 `for this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife, and they shall be -- the two -- for one flesh.”
Who do the black robed justices of the Supreme Court think they are doing by mocking the laws of God to align with their own vision of what is right and what is wrong? They have openly thumbed their elite noses at God to the eventual demise of this country they represent and its God given laws of righteous living. They will be held accountable in the end, and all who do not reject this “ungodly edict” in civil disobedience. When it comes to unjust laws, I am as Peter told the Sanhedrin in Acts:
5:29 Then Peter and the apostles replied, We must obey God rather than men.
As a law abiding citizen, I obey laws that do not conflict with the laws of God, but when they do, as this most definitely does, then we must reject this ungodly ruling by civil disobedience. Why? Glad you asked.
Man is a sinful creature by nature and has through the workings of Satan, the Supreme Court perverted and violated something so sacred that it was patterned after Jesus Christ loving the Church. In the bible we have scripture after scripture, story after story that speaks quite frankly of what God abhors in a sexual relationship. He hates fornication. He hates adultery and even more He hates the degrading of the body through sexual relations between people of the same sex.
Everyone who has studied the bible, (but many of these gay rights people, care less what the bible says) knows the story of God destroying Sodom and Gomorrah. What was the blatant sin that God destroyed them with fire and brimstone? Yes, it was homosexuality, as we read where even the angels of God were surrounded in Lot’s home by all ages, from young to old, of homosexual perverts who wished to “know them. Genesis,
19:4, “But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house;
v. 5, and they called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them."
Upon grabbing Lot and his family by the wrist and forcibly removing them to run for the hills, as they could not do anything until they were safely out of the city, God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah and sister cities with fire and brimstone, leveling it to the ground never to rise again.
GOD HAS NOT CHANGED
Malachi 3:6, “For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”
In the Old Testament, God told the descendents of Jacob, which by inference means us as well, that He has changed not. Then in the New Testament, Paul spoke of our Lord and Savior and His unchangeable nature.
Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.”
So the question again is has God changed His mind concerning what He handed down even to Moses and the apostle Paul as forbidden by mankind to engage in? We can clearly see that He has not changed His mind throughout all the ages. If it was sin then, it is sin still today and punishable by death.
I remember a quote by Billy Graham’s wife when she said and I paraphrase here what she said “If God does not do the same to the USA as He did to Sodom and Gomorrah for their sins, then God will have to apologize to them for allowing the USA to do the same.”
Any nation is defined by its leadership, especially as the USA has elected those in government to represent them in all matters. When a leadership goes against the clear commandments of God which this nation was founded upon, and the people do not take them to task over their lawlessness, then judgment is coming, and mark my words, judgment is coming and may have already begun. As was spoken of in scripture, God will debase and destroy those nations, those people, and any of those who transgress against His laws in defiance by mocking His Word. God is patient, but there comes a time when His patience runs out. I believe we are at that point.
Here is a case in point. Have you ever heard of an organization called NAMBLA? It is an organization that desires the legalization of sex with underage children. (North American Men/Boy Love Association, Look it up on Google). Have we gone mad as a nation? It’s not legal yet, but the Gay Lobby is focused on making all forms of their lifestyle legal in the eyes of the law. (I told you above, that they want to have sex with your under age children). No one would have dreamed while I was a young man, that this country would be steeped in the grotesque display we see even in our streets. I know it has always been there, but I would have desired it be kept in their own closet, not in open rebellion to the ways of God.
Ever see anything on Gay Pride parades? They revel in their sinful ways by displaying their bodies in whatever appears unseemly and ungodly. But it is only the beginning of the takedown of America. This will affect every business in this country, as the homosexual lobby will make examples of any Christian business that refuses to bake a cake, provide flowers, or take photographs of an openly gay wedding (and already has)…just to start as it will spread to every facet of our daily lives and to speak out will put a target on your back. It’s also is spreading to the pulpit where pastors are forbidden to speak out against the sins of the flesh in peril of their tax exempt status. I say to every pulpit, get rid of your tax exempt status now, so you can do the will of God without being harassed by the IRS. I see Texas has proposed in their legislature a “Pastor’s Protection Act” to allow preachers in the pulpit to speak out against this moral decay. It’s needed in all 50 states now, but it may be too little, too late, as the pulpit and the nations clergy has been lax in their condemnation and speaking out against sins of moral depravity and more worried about their budgets than doing the will of God. Coming soon, anyone speaking out against this sin of homosexuality will be labeled a bigot, and committing “hate speech” and subject to a fine or jail time. I look for Christian blogs and websites to be warned, and then taken down for just such preaching of God’s Word in opposition to such sins of the flesh. Is this the beginning of persecution of the church before Christ returns? How long will God allow persecution in the church before He breaks through the clouds of heaven and take His children home? I don’t know, but we may be tested before He comes.
HOMOSEXUAL LOBBY HAVE POWERFUL BENEFACTORS
These groups of gay people have a powerful lobby financed by none other than George Soros, that spends millions on militantly and aggressively seeking special rights, privileges and designations for all things gay.
California and other states voted down gay marriage and defined it as a union between a man and a woman, twice. That didn’t stop the Gay Lobby. They petitioned the courts that ultimately overturned the will of the people by judicial dictate and legislated from the bench. And now the highest court in the land has made law from the bench and legislated what is marriage and what is not. I speak of George Soros, the man with his billions that only wishes to destroy America and make it a godless, socialist country and this legislation is a means to that end. His objective is to take America down as he has done elsewhere. I wonder sometimes if God has His hand hovering over the “smite” button to bring judgment upon this man. Make no mistake about it, God may allow this nation to fall. But how can we stop it? We may not be able to…as the horse is already out of the gate.
IT HAS BEEN PROPHESIED TO HAPPEN
Although God hates this form of perversion, Jesus spoke of how the world would be just before His coming for His bride and His second coming. Matthew 24:
24:37 “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
Are we not living in such a day as was the days of Noah when evil was in the hearts of men continuously? Are we not living as it was when Lot’s family was removed from Sodom before God destroyed it with fire and brimstone? I’m of the mind, we can’t stop it, as it’s been prophesied that it would be so, just as Jesus spoke of. IN the past, I have believed that if this nation would fall to its knees and pray for mercy and turn back to God, that He would heal this nation, but NO MORE. I believe this nation has gone too far and the total destruction of this nation is at hand. I also believe that the church will be removed before God totally destroys this nation in His wrath, and that could be sooner than anyone thinks…So Come Lord Jesus.
I have preached in the past of economic turmoil coming to the economic engine of the world, the New York Stock Exchange and the currency basis for all economic trade in the free world, the U.S. dollar. Many have predicted and look for a implosion of our economy and by direct effect, the economy of the entire world, as the USA is the very foundation of the world’s economic stability. Should the U.S. economy collapse, so shall all other economies of the world, in a domino liked fashion. But that is only the beginning of what could befall this nation in rapid sequence of paralyzing events. Economic collapse brings about chaos, violence, and social disintegration with riots in the streets, murder, pillage, and all forms of lawlessness that cannot be stopped except by military force and marshal law. Could this be the intention of these internment camps (Gulags) that are popping up all over the USA?
Now look at what is happening in the western United States, especially in California….the drought is destroying the producer of 50% of this nations ability to feed itself. Water is at a premium and the largest reservoir in the USA is almost dry, Lake Meade. Look at the Midwest, with its flooding and the inability of farmers to get into the fields to plant crops, or the sweep of bird flu that has killed a major portion of chickens and turkeys in the Midwest states that produce poultry and eggs. Look at the inability to control our borders from whoever wishes to enter into our country, be they Latino or terrorist, even members of ISIS. What would one well placed nuclear device do to our economy? What if that device was planted and detonated in NYC? Can you say economic collapse instantly?
What if in God’s wrath over the blatant sins of the flesh and lawlessness, this nation was destroyed by environmental upheaval? Earthquakes, volcanoes that have awakened, and that could effectively destroy this country in a cloud of ash and super heated mud? It is predicted that if the super volcano in Yellowstone National Park were to erupt, it would throw this country into an ice age and everything and everyone in this nation would die. I could go on and on what COULD happen, should God bring judgment on this nation as I believe is destined to begin soon, or has already begun. But I am comforted to know that God is in control and will protect His own. Psalm 91:
91:7 “A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.”
This decision by the Supreme Court, I believe has put the nail in the coffin of our national demise and all that is needed if for the “fat lady to sing” as this play is over. This nation is proverbially “toast” and as in the past, will fall because of her sins.
AN ABOMINATION BEFORE GOD
The word abomination is a strong word, but that is what God calls the sin of homosexuality. Got a problem with that? Take it up with God. What does the word actually mean?
1. anything abominable; anything greatly disliked or abhorred.
2.intense aversion or loathing; detestation:
3.a vile, shameful, or detestable action, condition, habit, etc.:
God hates sin, but he puts this sin of homosexuality in the most intense terms He can when He proclaims it an abomination. God will not allow anyone who commits such sin into His presence without repentance and covered by the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ and turning away from such behavior.
1st. Corinthians 6:9-10, “Know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate (translated homosexual), nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
God loves the sinner, but hates the sin and will not allow anyone with this sin present in their lives into His presence. Now I ask you a question, “Are you an abomination before God?”
ARE YOU AN ABOMINATION BEFORE GOD?
Again, that’s a strong word to use, isn’t it? But if you are doing what Paul said in Romans of the ills of this world and its perversions, and especially this nation, then yes, you are an abomination before God. Those that consider themselves wise, either by education, science, or intellect God says that you are a “fool”. I didn’t say it, God did. (Romans 1: 22) You who deny God when evidence is all around you, so that you have no excuse, are you an abomination? You who embrace diversity of homosexuality, free love, political correctness, and every evil device known to man…OR… you see it and say NOTHING are you an abomination, or just guilty? Is suspect affirmation on both points. I call upon you who straddle the fence on political correctness, or are engaged in any of these practices that are bringing this nation down, to repent while you still can. Deuteronomy chapter 30:
30:19, “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
30:20, That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days:”
As it was so true in the time that God spoke these Words to the children of Israel, it is no truer than it is today than it was then. Choose life, for the reward of standing with God and His Son Jesus Christ, is life everlasting. To be an abomination before God, is to choose death and being cast out of God’s sight eternally. Again, I say today choose life.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.
God did not send His Son to condemn the world, but through Him, the world might be saved”. John 3:16-17
God did not come to condemn the world, but to save it when He came the first time. The next time, soon, He will come as Lord and judge of all the earth. Those who are in rebellion following after those things that God condemns as an abomination, will be judged and condemned to spend all eternity in separation from God in total darkness where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth. The time is grower so short, that this world could end as we know it, (as you know it that is), for Jesus will come and then all hell, literally will break loose and you will witness a true abomination of your soul, the Tribulation where 75% of you will die in God’s righteous wrath. Don’t let the Supreme Court speak for you. Turn to God through Jesus Christ, confess your sins, and repent of your lifestyle if it be in conflict with God’s law and righteous way of living. To reject this plea is to reject God….God is love, yes, but also a mighty and righteous, fearful God of wrath and indignation that will judge all men, as our God is a consuming fire. Paul warned all men not to refuse the gift that God gave for our redemption, as God will judge all those who live as quoted in the opening verses.
Hebrews chapter 12:
12:25 “See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
12:27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.”
