I just witnessed one of our top television preachers playing down the Supreme Court decision to legalize gay marriage. He said, “That’s the world. It’s what they do. Blah, blah, blah.” No conviction, to moral outrage, no instruction – just another lame, please- everybody-TV ministry, hoping that soon everyone will just forget about this and move on.
This is not the example of Scripture nor of the early apostles, nor of our recent revival forefathers and champions of cultural change.
“Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:19-20).
“We ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29).
The Supreme Court has just declared war on the Church, and all this preacher could say was that it’s just how the world acts. God is trying to wake up His generals and captains because frankly, they are in a coma. Some of these famous preachers need to get off television and sit down because they have nothing to say.
So we are just supposed to lie down like a dog, or crawl in a hole and hide, and accept the consequences of the Supreme Court’s ruling – just what the Church did with the abortion issue in Roe vs. Wade. Just what the Church did when prayer was taken out of the schools. When will we learn? What will it take for the blood of these major ministries to boil and use their platform to be a voice for spiritual revolution and change?
Do we really understand Romans 1 language? The bible says that because of certain abominations like homosexuality the land will vomit out its inhabitants (Lev. 18:25-28). The apostle Paul called it shameful, and the result of being given up by God to “vile passions” (Rom 1:24-27). He is not speaking mainly to the Church. He is also speaking of the world.
In the Old Testament, those who practice these things were removed from the congregation of Israel by execution. We are told in the New Testament that those who practice homosexuality will not inherit the kingdom of God (1 Cor. 6:9-10). Romans actually shows homosexuality to be the final order of rebellion against God. What do you think is next?
When people exchange the truth of God for a lie, and begin to worship the creature more than the Creator, God gives them up to evil. When values are turned upside down and moral anarchy appears, men burning with lust for other men and women with other women – then receiving in their own bodies the punishment for their actions, it is already the judgment of God manifestation.
These Christians who say, “God is not a God judgment, He is a God of love” do not read their bibles. They get all their understanding from their most popular teacher or pastor on Christian television who does not have a hint of understanding himself of the true nature and character of God. Of course, God is love, but He is also holy and just and “can in no wise clear the guilty” unless they repent and believe/obey the gospel.
Even when studies show the enormous cases of sickness, disease, and premature death among the gay community (D.C. Clothesline) they continue to rush headlong into destruction. Even with the continual new reports of children of gay unions, now adults, being so emotionally harmed and psychologically abused and coming out in opposition to gay marriage (The Daily Signal), they still trek onward in this perverted path of irrational judgment and sure destruction.
But that’s not all. Now our government, our puny little puppet president, the leftist media, and the highest court in our land continues to fight for this, defend and celebrate its position, and promote it. Now polygamists want their rights. Now pedophiles want their rights. Now people want to marry their dogs and animals. Have the courts realized what they’ve done? I tell you, America has gone MAD!!! Hell has unleashed itself! And in the midst of this, many preachers are still saying, “Oh, that’s just what the world does”. God, help us!
How much wrath does America have to incur before there is a massive corporate uprising among the Church and its leaders? “Oh, we don’t believe in God’s wrath. We’re under grace.” Really? Well, you’re too late. His wrath is already being revealed.
“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness” (Rom. 1:18).
“Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves” (v. 24).
“For this reason God gave them up to vile passions” (v. 26).
“And when they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased/reprobate mind” (v. 28).
Do we understand that this is already the wrath of God being revealed? From the so-called sexual revolution of earlier years to the celebrated sexual perversion of today, to the ruling of the Supreme court for same-sex marriage is already the wrath of God being revealed. He has given this nation over to lustful, debasing, and perverted acts. “They not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them” (v. 32). The judgment is not coming. It is already here! The wrath of God is already being revealed. He has abandoned much of our society to a reprobate mind.
Not only will the Lord abandon this perverse generation unless there is massive widespread repentance (which I still believe there will be), but His wrath is also being revealed through calamities, natural disasters, plagues, and wars. Is it a mere coincidence that in the last 50 years there’s been more earthquakes than in the last 2000? This is all a building up to His coming, for when Jesus returns His wrath will be further unleashed against those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Thes. 1:7-10). This started in America decades ago. I will say it again: Homosexuality is the final order of rebellion against God!
Oh, how we need a revival of the fear of the Lord in our nation and in God’s house! “For judgment begins in the house of God and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel?” (1 Pet. 4:17).
During war time those who are passive and casual irk and disturb those who are passionate for a righteous cause, and who have a holy zeal for God’s house (Ps. 69:9) (John 2:17). When 3% of the population who confess to be gay, pushed and financed by a large active agenda, succeed in numbing and affecting a vast part of our US population into thinking homosexuality is normal and to be celebrated, we are in a fight for the nation, and ultimately the Church’s liberties.
We best not be casual about that.
