In the same week we had a transgender beauty Contest in the Land of Israel, the same Land that the Majesty of Heaven walked upon. A man shared his proposal of marriage to another man video on Facebook and in less than two days, the video has been watched by more than 1.9 million people with lots of congratulatory messages.
The world is living at a moment where we think we are the first to come up with an ‘organized’ form of homosexual marriages and this time round God has no choice but to agree with us. It is just stupid to even think so, yet many churches seem to agree that maybe we are a little more organized with Human Rights groups and millions on campaigns, God has to finally accept this as a choice.
Well, it is a choice, but just not God’s choice. Just as the choice of these two men. It is their choice, absolutely nothing to do with genetics, hormones, just a choice. So, if it is a choice, why should this trouble Christians?
Gen 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
That was about 2000 years since the creation, when God destroyed the world, He looked down and every imagination of man was evil. We are about 2000 years since Christ died on the cross, what in essence is the key to salvation. So in other words, the first people to be born again in Christ happened 2,000 years ago, just the same time as the time between Adam and Noah.
Are our imaginations evil?
In His prophecy concerning end times, Christ mentioned a lot regarding morality and the end of the world.
Luk 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
Luk 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Luk 17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
Luk 17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Just as the days of Noah. When Christ mentioned marrying and giving to marriage many people tend to assume it was a reference to traditional marriages, which is not. Remember, it was God in Eden that witnessed the first marriage and Christ on earth made time to attend a wedding.
Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Joh 2:1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
Joh 2:2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
Were these marriages homosexual? Of course NOT. The first we know was between Adam and Eve and the later we can infer from context that it wasn’t.
Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Deu_22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
Pro_15:9 The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.
Clearly God has a bad history with something that is an abomination. So Christ would not attend a gay wedding, cry gay rights all you want. Christ will not attend a transgender beauty contest, cry gay rights all you want. But does that mean Christ hates these people? Absolutely NOT. God is patient, holding back the destruction that is now long overdue that everyone should repent, including these two men.
But still, if Christ used the specific examples of Noah’s time and Lot’s time, with specific inference to marriages then we should ask ourselves why these marriages were a sign for the coming of Christ. Marriages are a blessing, but reading on what those men who came about Lot’s house, we know the marriages in these cases were not those between a man and a woman as God instituted.
But then again, why is that my problem?
When God was going down to destroy Sodom and Gomorrha, there was a long negotiation on behalf of the people of that City. Abraham knew these people and he trusted that in his knowledge some of these people are ‘pretty good’. To be honest, Abraham had probably had business dealings and social encounters with them. His cousin Lot lived in the city and we would assume they visited each other time to time.
So Abraham in all his faith pleaded with God. Would God destroy an entire City if there were 50 righteous people?
Gen 18:32 And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake.
The numbers went to 10, and God said for 10 people He wouldn’t have destroyed the City. The Cities were destroyed. There were not even 10 righteous people. Only 3 walked away, Lot and his two daughters.
It is the same story that happened with Noah. In the entire world, Noah and his family walked into the Ark and the world was destroyed.
Now, while pastors and priests are struggling with homosexual marriages and pedophilia, do you think the world has 10 people righteous? To the standards of God? Do you? Are you scared that God could be having the same discussion with the Angels today? What if the last righteous person just died from a car crash and the other guy was drunk? What if the ‘safety’ number that holds back destruction have been depleted?
In two days, a homosexual proposal video has been viewed more than 1.5 million people. Remember the words of Christ. We are living at the end times. Unfortunately, if the people at Noah’s time could not heed to 120yrs of preaching, nor those at Lot’s time could not learn from the mistakes of the others, or we today, we who are too proud to learn from the mistakes of tens of generations, then the end that is upon us, we can not run away from.
Christ is coming, and with Him, judgement.
