"For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,"
You know, Homosexual marriage is alluded to in the Bible. It actually sits there as a warning sign for anyone who cares to listen. It sits there, unfortunately, for those who deny it's importance as evidence that we are near the final days of our civilization. Noah is now entering the ark.
I hear all kinds of fairy tales by those trying to build some Biblical argument for allowing sexual perversion in the 'House of God'. It is a serious and dangerous notion. It displays a complete lack of understanding about the heart of God toward us and our sinful, fallen nature.
Homosexuality in the body of Messiah is a surrender by those who know God's Word on the matter yet choose to ignore it. This issue of homosexual marriage is heavily involved with the spirit of lust that is engulfing our society as a whole. For those in Yeshua's army, acceptance of any sexual perversion is desertion in the face of the enemy. It is a subject that is clearly put before us throughout scripture and cannot be put away by any serious follower of Yeshua HaMashiach, the Living Word of God. Yeshua the Messiah is our Lord, we do what He says. He is boss.
The Bible is straight forward on the homosexual matter. The very term 'Sodomite' comes from the judgment rendered upon the homosexuals who had taken over the city of Sodom in Genesis. The militant homosexuals noticed Lot entertaining visitors to their city. They demanded Lot's guests, the angels of the Lord, to come out and be 'known' by them. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by God and have stood as an example of God's justice throughout history. Sodomites have always known this truth whether they would admit it or not. Throughout history, any God fearing nation has properly shunned open homosexual activity and kept them in their closet. That is, until now. Indeed, the Day of the Lord is on the horizon!
For the record, you cannot justify any sex outside of the Biblical definition of marriage. Sexual sin leaves deep scars and sears consciences. It is very clear in the Bible. Whether it be adultery, fornication, or sexual perversion, it is sin. We can be forgiven but first we must repent. Sexual sin is just like any other sin in that it attracts demonic activity and infiltration. Again, it is sin. We ask forgiveness from the Lord, those involved and we change our ways.
People are not born homosexual! Think about what you are saying. You are saying God made you a certain way and then is going to judge you for it. Do you really think our Heavenly Father could be so cruel? The very notion is sick. Our sexual proclivities are our choice and not something we are born with. It is our choice and we will receive the consequences for the choices we make.
"Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen."
It's so sad and really pathetic to see leaders in the body of Messiah, who say they live for the God of the Bible falling all over themselves, and changing convictions in order to please this fallen and wicked world. The devil must be having a belly laugh. My frustration is not with unbelievers or politicians trying to sway people to their world view. The far greater danger are these ever changing 'beliefs' of those who profess they know the Lord. They are chaff blowing in the wind. They are the ones that make people want to gag. In fact, they are literally the ones that will make the Lord throw up!
"And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:"
As we truly surrender our hearts and pray to find out how best to please our Lord, we should always pray for wisdom and understanding. It should be very clear to us what Yeshua the Messiah is getting at in the Matthew 24 passage above: Gay Marriage in the last days is what the prophecy is referring to. Think about it. There is nothing wrong with people eating and drinking, unless they are being gluttons and turning the act of eating, and drinking, into something lewd and lascivious. By the same measure there is nothing wrong with 'marrying and giving in marriage' unless the people marrying were wrong in whom they were marrying! Same sex marriage is not only wrong but is an abomination unto the Lord. It is a stench in His nostrils.
"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
