Being labeled and dismissed as a “homophobe” may be all it takes for some to turn their back on the biblical message about homosexuality and other immorality. But true disciples and conservative Bible believers will go to the end of time without yielding one iota for today’s social engineering plotters who have decided that anything goes should be legalized, streamlined and put up in our faces.
If we try to explain the difference between pre, mid and post exilic prophecies of ancient Israel, or if we try to elucidate the powerful differences between Messianic and pre-millennial prophecies having to do with Christ, some will understand – most will not.
We have to treat society like a child in order to provoke a ripple of recognition among them – only the most general prophecies can hope to speak to the subject of the promised last days plunge into worldwide immorality and reprobation.
We call it the apostasy or the great falling away that precedes the second coming of Christ. It is a long list of behaviors that are set forth as people lose the ability to discern between religious hokey pokey and the Divine message given to them in God’s word. Man listens only to himself, before the day arrives – that is what makes the day arrive! Moderns are in full know it all mode and momentum has now replaced discernment and finer judgment – the first to fall in this warfare – is the truth.
The Apostle Paul addressed the time we are living in, and said that we would be, “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (2 Tim 3: 7) This is true reprobation.
It is prophecy that informs us of the apostasy, but it is love that keeps our message on track.
LGBT would like the world to believe that our refusal to accept the homo-agenda is solely based on hatred. The philosophy used to justify perversion is by nature – also perverted.
Since those who love God are bound by the first and greatest commandment, it is easy to see that the willingness to obey this commandment is what keeps us from accepting the entire message of LGBT. What is that commandment?
“Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” (Mt 22: 36-37)
How could anyone who claims to be practicing the fulfillment of the first and great commandment refuse to take God seriously when it comes to his words on the subject of homosexuality? Can we say we love him and then disregard his words on this matter?
The second commandment Christ said, is also driven by love. We are told to love our neighbor as ourselves.
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” (Mt 22: 39-40)
It is impossible to love our neighbor if they are heading down the road to the homo-lifestyle, which we are clearly told by God will leave them out of an eternity with him, if we do not give them fair warning. Our silence is the exact opposite of love.
Not at all, but we love God and our neighbor and that is the reason we must and will always completely reject the behaviors, the philosophy and the practice of homosexuality and its related perversions.
If there is any fear at all that drives us to speak against the sin of homosexuality it is derived from an Old Testament passage. It was a message given to the prophet Ezekiel and a strong warning that failure to inform the sinner that he or she is on the wrong path can make us culpable.
It is straight up, and clear as a bell. To wit:
“When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand” (Eze 3: 18)
Sorry LGBT, our motive is not fear, but it is love, no more, and no less!
