Vital words to the body of Christ
Teaching the Gospel of God's Kingdom
Was June 26, 2003 the Last Straw?
Has America gone too far for God to ignore her sin and her blatant disregard for His Word and the moral standards He requires?
On June 26th, 2003 the Supreme Court declared it was legal for Sodomites (homosexuals, lesbians, transvestites) to be legally married. Their decision was based on the premise that the government - - - state, federal or local - - - had no right to legislate morality in the bedroom between consenting adults.
History has proven the morals of a nation are dictated by the morals in the bedroom. The bedroom is the center of our society. When immorality is accepted in the bedroom, these same immoralities are taught to our children and become accepted as normal behavior. When this happens, that nation or that people have crossed the line of civilized human beings and have become animalistic in their thinking.
This nation was based on the fact that there is one God, and that God is Jesus Christ, and that the Bible is the infallible Word of God. All these Supreme Court Justices were sworn in with their hand on the Bible. So what does the Bible say about those who want to claim their perverted way of life as being right in the sight of God.
"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." Romans 1:21-22
Those who sit on the Supreme Court profess themselves to be wise. But as God declared, their decision has marked them as fools, and their foolish hearts have been darkened. One of the Supreme Court Justices admitted the court had bowed to public pressure. The Supreme Court is the highest court in the land, and should be above public opinion. They are placed in this highest authority to uphold the Constitution. They are to make their decisions based on what the Constitution states which is, or should be the law of the land. The founding fathers of this nation, never in their wildest imagination, could have ever imagined anyone interpreting what they wrote in the Constitution that would allow Sodomites to be married.. Of course, they could also have never imagined the Supreme Court allowing the murdering of our unborn either. More of our unborn have been slaughtered than Hitler killed in the Second World War, and we call him a monster. Paul continued his letter to the Roman church:
"Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:" *** Romans 1:24
When Sodomites engage in their ungodly acts, they dishonor their bodies which were created in the image of God. The word dishonor is the Greek word ATIMAZO and means "to entreat shamefully, to insult, and treat with contempt."
"For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections for ever their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:" Romans 1:26
The Supreme Court has OK'd and legalized what is an abomination and an afront to God. Paul continues:
"And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet." Romans 1:27
". . . receiving in themselves the recompence of their error . . . ". The word recompence means "reward for their actions, which was meet or necessary." God judged Sodom and Gommorah for the same thing the Supreme Court has approved.
"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;" Romans 1:28
God will turn all those who engage in sodomy over to a reprobate mind. A reprobate mind is one whom God has rejected and has allowed them to continue in their sin. God's conviction is no longer in their lives. Their consciences have been seared.
I guess the question then arises, "Have those on the Supreme Court also suffered this judgment of God, since their decisions are no longer based on the Bible, but public opinion?" When we can expect nothing else than decisions based on the opinion of fallen men with reprobate minds, what can this nation expect? But most of all what can the Sodomites expect?
"Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection implacable, unmerciful:" Romans 1:29-31
God inspired Paul to write that these Sodomites would be full of murder. When we consider that every case of serial murders in this nation has had implications of homosexual overtones. These serial murderers killed their victims to cover up their sin. These are haters of God and inventors of evil things and without natural affections.
"So knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." Romans 1:32
Those who do such things are worthy of death. Those who have pleasure in those who do such things are also worthy of death. When the Supreme Court legislates such activity, are they any less worthy of death?
Paul gives us the conclusion of the matter when he wrote:
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;" Romans 1:18
Is June 26th, 2003 the last straw? Can God's hand of judgment be reserved any longer? This nation is for some rough times, so get a good strong hold on your Bible and hang on.
