One man and woman – God hasn’t changed His mind!
Psalm 24 tells us: The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
I created this image in response to the recent decision of the US Supreme Court. Notice it is just the Supreme Court of the United States of America, not the universe! I like the way that Franklin Graham said it:
“Long before our government came into existence, marriage was created by Almighty God—the One who created man and woman. He is clear about the definition of marriage in His Holy Word: ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh’ (Genesis 2:24, ESV).”
In the New Testament, Jesus reiterated God’s definition of marriage: From the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife’. (Mark 10:6–7) The court did not define marriage, and therefore it is not entitled to redefine it.
We didn’t get here overnight
We wrestle not with flesh and blood; satan has been filling the court with darkened hearts, seduced by their own pride, for a long, long time. By 1962, he had polluted the high court enough that they ruled to take prayer out of schools. He used them to make us a nation of biblical illiterates in order to deceive the masses into accepting perversion as normal, so much so that many who claim to be followers of Christ do not believe homosexuality to be sin.
Once the fear of the Lord (which is the beginning of Wisdom, as Proverbs 9:10 states) had been removed from our schools, the masses were easily manipulated. Ten years after prayer had been removed, the fruit of sexual immorality that followed was flooding the land, and the all-wise court decided that killing unborn children would be good for the nation. Ignoring the fifth of the Ten Commandments, thou shalt not kill, the court overruled the Creator and gave women the “right” to kill their unborn.
It was the beginning of calling evil good, a portion of scripture (that is very clear) which they removed from before our children’s eyes:
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20, KJV)
The unchaining of the sodomite spirit
Sodomy was a felony in every state up until 1962, with the penalty being an extended term of imprisonment and/or hard labor. The Founding Fathers took a very dim view of sodomy, perhaps because they knew what scripture says in Leviticus 18:27-28:
For all these abominations have the men of the land done who were before you, and the land is defiled— [Do none of these things] lest the land spew you out when you defile it as it spewed out the nation that was before you. (NKJV)
Let’s be very clear here, homosexuality defiles the land, and the Founding Fathers knew it!
Thomas Jefferson drafted a criminal reform bill for Virginia 1777-1779 which contained a punishment of castration for men who engage in sodomy. 1 This was actually intended by Jefferson to be a more lenient punishment than the standing penalty of death. This bill was rejected by the Virginia Legislature, however, which continued to sentence death as the penalty for the crime of sodomy. 2
Scripture says that sodomy defiles the land, and now judicial despots have sanctioned it as holy!
Again, calling evil good, and good evil; and putting forth darkness for light… making darkness the law of the land.
I bless the county clerks and circuit court judges who have followed the dictates of their hearts at the cost of their jobs, and have refused to sanction the profane as holy. Lord, bless them abundantly with supernatural provision.
As I said, earlier, we wrestle not with flesh and blood. I don’t hate homosexual people who live their lives under the domination of the sodomite spirit! On the contrary, I pity them, having believed a lie and through their own choice have relinquished to satan the reward of the fruit of the womb. The destiny of their bloodline cut off – and satan laughs!
Psalm 127:3 says: Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
Homosexuals argue instead that through adoption they get to choose the child of their choice, again proving they have no understanding of the generational blessing of bloodlines and family trees.
Why should they? The sodomite evangelists have discipled them and schooled them in the perversions of hell.
The parents who raised them and did the best they could do for them thought by sending them to universities they would better the lives of their most cherished charges. But long ago, professors who have a hatred for the things of God have systematically dismantled the faith of our children and ridiculed and intimidated anyone who dares challenge their perverted philosophies.
Martin Luther saw it coming in 1520: “I would advise no one to send his child where the Holy Scriptures are not supreme. Every institution that does not unceasingly pursue the study of God's word becomes corrupt. Because of this we can see what kind of people they become in the universities and what they are like now… I greatly fear that the universities, unless they teach the Holy Scriptures diligently and impress them on the young students, are wide gates to hell.” 3
Even though we have looked at the portion of the path that has lead us here, let’s now magnify the solution to our current condition!
I find my rest in Isaiah 9:7: Of the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end… to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from the [latter] time forth, even forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. (AMP)
Yeah God! Your zeal will uphold the justice of Your created order! The teeny created justices in the US have rendered their decision, now it’s time for the Chief Justice, Creator of the Universe, to enforce His!
He set the order in Genesis and He hasn’t changed His mind!
It would be prudent for this president and the judges on the high court who deem themselves as supreme to realize there is only one who is Supreme, and take heed to His directive from Psalm 2:10-12:
So, rebel-kings, use your heads;
Upstart-judges, learn your lesson:
Worship God in adoring embrace,
Celebrate in trembling awe. Kiss Messiah!
Your very lives are in danger, you know;
His anger is about to explode,
But if you make a run for God—you won’t regret it! (Message)
We are living in the day of the separation of the wheat from the tares, and the sons of God are coming into maturity; it doesn't matter what it looks like at the moment.
Do not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
And wither as the green herb.
Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.
He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday.
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret—it only causes harm.
For evildoers shall be cut off;
But those who wait on the Lord,
They shall inherit the earth.
For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more;
Indeed, you will look carefully for his place,
But it shall be no more.
But the meek shall inherit the earth,
And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
The wicked plots against the just,
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
The Lord laughs at him,
For He sees that his day is coming. (Psalm 37:1-13, NKJV)
The greatest awakening the earth has ever known is upon us, so arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!
For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you.
And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
Lift up your eyes round about you and see! They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms.
Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy [at the glorious deliverance] and be enlarged; because the abundant wealth of the [Dead] Sea shall be turned to you, unto you shall the nations come with their treasures. (Isaiah 60:1-5, AMP)
