The Apostle Paul warned about the times we live in, a time when good is called evil and evil is called good.
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” – 2 Tim. 4:3,4
In May this year the House of Representatives voted to pass the Equality Act. The Equality Act would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include “sex,” “sexual orientation,” and “gender identity” among expressly recognized “non-discrimination” categories in “public accommodations” (the definition of which would be dramatically expanded); and force employers of 15 or more people to recognize their claimed “gender identity,” forbid them from “discriminating” based on “sexual orientation” or “gender identity,” and mandate transgender “access” to sex-specific facilities. The State of
California has already passed a similar bill that will make it illegal for preachers to quote what the Bible has to say about homosexuality and sodomy.
Franklin Graham wrote “If the Senate majority changes or if enough Republican senators change their position, it would be up to the president to veto the bill. And if that office were to change hands in 2020, I have little doubt this would become the law of the land,”
If that happens, he continued, Christian employers “would lose all protections to hire people who adhere to their biblical statements of faith. Christians will be persecuted for their sincerely held beliefs as never before. The clear teachings of the Bible on the sins of homosexuality and abortion will no doubt be considered ‘hate speech.’ It will be a nightmare from which this nation may never recover.”
For over 5000 years every culture on earth has looked at this lifestyle as wrong. In the Creation, God brought a woman to the man, not a man to a man. Marriage has been defined from the beginning as a man and a woman being joined together. There has only ever been two genders, male and female. God thoughts on marriage are given by the prophet Malachi –
“And this have ye done again, covering the altar of the LORD with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand. Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.” – Mal. 2:13-15
I do not say divorce is unforgivable but, you need to understand it is not God’s will, it is the devil’s will to rob you of the blessing of the Lord. But, I wanted to use these verses because they reveal why God instituted marriage in the first place – to produce godly seed, or children. Homosexuals and Lesbians are desperately trying to genetically modify themselves to produce children because they cannot have them! It is against God’s design. All of this transgender nonsense is just that – nonsense. No matter how much you change your outward appearance, you cannot change what is in you. You remain as God made you. God is your maker and He knows who you are intended to be –
“Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!” – Psalm 139:16,17
Before you were born, God knew all about you and your days were written down in a Book in heaven. The devil and his followers are trying to rob us of His thoughts toward us because they are precious! Those who are passing bills in Congress honoring homosexuality, lesbianism, and transgenderism are doing the devils bidding. Those pastors who are promoting this lifestyle are not doing God’s will but, the devils!
God is sending judgments on the land already because of the wickedness of the people, as Hosea wrote long ago –
“Hear the word of the LORD, You children of Israel, For the LORD brings a charge against the inhabitants of the land: There is no truth or mercy Or knowledge of God in the land. By swearing and lying, Killing and stealing and committing adultery, They break all restraint, With bloodshed upon bloodshed. Therefore the land will mourn; And everyone who dwells there will waste away With the beasts of the field And the birds of the air; Even the fish of the sea will be taken away.”– Hosea 4:1-3
These mass die-offs of birds, fish, and beasts began in 2010 and they continue today. Recent birds dropping out of the skies in Australia are evidence of this. This is evidence of God’s judging the nations because man is breaking all restraint and calling evil good!
Finally, we who are Christians need to understand the battle we are engaged in. We need to begin praying for wisdom for our leaders and the President. We need to send those Representatives who are voting in favor of the LGBT lifestyle home and elect those who will support Biblical standards – that includes all the Democrats and some of the Republicans as well.
Remember what the Lord God says, “For I AM the LORD, I do not change!” – Mal. 3:6.
