The Supreme Court of the United States has redefined marriage for all 50 states. Hearing this, we need to go to the scriptures of the Holy Bible, to see what God Almighty says about homosexuality and marriage.
Genesis 1:27, “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
Matthew 19:4-6, And Jesus answered them, saying, "Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?’ So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
Leviticus 18:22, “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.”
Matthew 5:17, “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law of the Prophets (Torah). I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.”
Leviticus 20:13, “If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”
Romans 1:26-32, “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”
Deuteronomy 22:5, “A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment, for all who do so are an abomination to the Lord your God.”
Isaiah 3:8-9, “For Jerusalem stumbled, and Judah is fallen, because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of His glory, The look on their countenance witnesses against them, and they declare their sin as Sodom; They do not hide it. Woe to their soul! For they have brought evil upon themselves.”
Jude 1:7, “As Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”
For the full story of Sodom and Gomorrah, Please see Genesis 19, so you will be fully armed with the Word of God.
1 Corinthians 6: 9-10, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
1 Peter 1:23-25, “The word of God lives and abides forever, because ‘All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers and its flower falls away, but the word of the Lord endures forever.”
Our Supreme Court has overruled the Almighty, the Supreme Judge of the Universe, on His definition of marriage. The president, some national leaders, and others have declared this as an issue of constitutional rights, civil rights, and/or equality. However, it is neither of these, but instead, a moral issue. The Holy Bible is very clear about homosexuality, as we see above. It is an abomination to God Almighty. Moses, Paul, Jude, Peter, and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, clearly denounce and forbid homosexuality. As the Lord loves everyone, we love everyone as well, but we are commanded not to condone or promote sin (Romans 1:32). God’s desire is for all people who engage in this act to repent so He can cleanse them and save them, not for America to condone and approve this behavior. Homosexuality is a sin just like adultery, murder, sodomy, stealing, lying, etc. It is a sin, as the Holy Bible clearly states. It cuts very deep into society’s soul. It breaks down the social structure of creation. It is an abomination. God destroyed Sodom, Israel, Greece and Rome for their arrogant sinful nature, and homosexuality was prominent. If He destroyed those cities, especially His heritage Israel, He will definitely judge America for our sins, including homosexuality. This is a moral issue, not a constitutional and/or civil rights issue.
Isaiah warns us about compromising God Almighty’s commandments.
Isaiah 5:20, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
As Christians, we are commanded to obey all of the laws in the Holy Bible. Not some of them, but all of them. We are not allowed to pick and choose which scriptures to follow and which ones not to follow. We are to control our lustful desires and feelings, which Satan tempts us with. We are to follow God’s Living Word, the Holy Bible, so we can overcome the moments of weakness and temptation. According to the Holy Bible, God says, homosexuality is a sinful temptation and lustful desire. If you believe in the Holy Bible, then it is very clear that this new law goes directly against God’s law. We know this because we have been given His everlasting words.
The Holy Bible predicts of a “falling away” of the nations.
2 Thessalonians 2:3, “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first.”
The Supreme Court’s decision today, in our opinion, has put the final seal on our nation. What else can America do to eliminate God? As a nation, we have removed Him from our government, the public square, court rooms, schools, marriage, and we are extremely close to eliminating Him from our culture altogether. Maybe the only thing left is the dollar bills with “In God We Trust.” We need to obey God’s Living Word, open our souls, listen to the Holy Spirit, and stand strong in the midst of darkness and evil.
2 Thessalonians 2:15, “Therefore brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught.”
We are commanded to stand firm in our Christian values given to us by the Almighty, and never compromise His commandments for anyone. For a country who has been blessed by God Almighty time and time again, America now stands in direct defiance with the Almighty. How can we expect the “smiles of heaven,” as spoken by George Washington, to continue to bless America, when we drive Him out of everything and are defiant against Him? Obviously, we can’t. America has spoken, the people we have elected have appointed the Supreme Court Justices, and they have ruled on behalf of our nation. I pray and hope you will join us in praying for our nation, for our leaders, our justices, and for all people tempted with this sin, to repent and turn to Jesus the Messiah, in order to be cleansed and set free from their sin.
2 Chronicles 7:14, “If My people who are called by My name, will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:19-20, “BUT if you turn away and forsake My statutes and My commandments which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods, and worship them, then I will uproot them from My land which I have given them; and this house which I have sanctified for My name I will cast out of My sight, and will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples.”
We pray for God’s forgiveness and for His mercy on the United States. Amen, Amen, and Amen
