Mat 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
Mat 24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
Mat 24:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
Mat 24:18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
That warning by Jesus, I want to believe was not for a ‘specific’ moment but for a ‘specific series of events’ that were to happen as we get closer to the end. And today, we are presently living in that moment.
Public schools must permit transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their gender identity, according to an Obama administration directive issued amid a court fight between the federal government and North Carolina.
“There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement.
This was a very delicate ground, even for Obama and so the Pope moved in to provide Americans with a softer blow.
To be a Christian, “doesn’t primarily mean to belong to a certain culture or to adhere to a certain doctrine, but rather to bind one’s own life, in every aspect, to the person of Jesus and, through him, to the Father.” Pope Francis said over the weekend.
How do these two relate?
To the world, the Pope is the authority on the Bible. So when the Pope says you don’t need the Doctrine, that is a statement that gets to every school, courthouse, community hall and wherever these issues arise.
Thanks to the grace of the Holy Spirit, which is “the love that unites the Father and the Son and who proceeds from them, all of us can life the same life as Jesus,” he said, adding that the Holy Spirit teaches us “the only essential thing: to love as God loved.” Pope Francis.
The Pope is essentially saying, for the sake of love, disregard any Doctrines that will bring division. America, on the other hand has said, to stop bigotry, to stop hatred, to promote individual rights, transgenders must be allowed to use whatever bathrooms or changing rooms they feel aligned to.
Now Chicago public schools are forcing students and staff to use requested transgender pronouns or face punishment.
Per the student guidelines: “[T]he intentional or persistent refusal by students or school staff to respect a student’s gender identity (for example, intentionally referring to the student by a name or pronoun that does not correspond to the student’s gender identity) is a violation of these Guidelines, the Student Code of Conduct, and Comprehensive Non-Discrimination, Title IX and Sexual Harassment Policy. Such violations will result in appropriate consequences for offending staff and students.”
“Under the guidelines, schools cannot require transgender individuals to obtain a court order or gender change before forcing the new vocabulary upon students.”
A Catholic will find it very hard to convince the world that the Bible is a valid basis to condemn homosexuality when their Pope has already said the doctrine is not necessary. While on one hand, such a christian will battle with compromising deeply held beliefs about gender and homosexuality in the Bible, the fact that their spiritual head has said it’s ok to be a christian without the Bible, such a person will succumb.
I don’t know if you see the deception friend. While on one side the Devil is pushing the American Christians to the wall with stupid laws and regulations in favor of 7% of the Population, on the opposite side, the Devil is providing a soft landing.
This is yet the very same treachery that resulted to the change in the Sabbath. While on one hand they made it difficult to keep the Sabbath, they made it easier to keep Sunday off.
Make no mistake, the end is here and God is soon coming. The question remains, will you enter the Ark or will you continue to ridicule those entering the Ark. Friend, there is no compromise, at the end, those in the Ark are those who remained faithful against this deception and kept the laws of God.
Rev 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Friend, we are living in those days that those who stand to fight against this apostasy will be saved.
1Ki 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
In the end, there will only be two groups….
Rev_14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
