Okay, so it seems today that we’ve now been dealt a devastating blow by SCOTUS/the U.S. Supreme Court as it pertains to gay “marriage”. Gay “marriage” is now legal in all 50 states! And NOW……..the Wrath of God upon America is COMPLETE!
Now, as a true, bible-believing/bible-adhering Christian, you may feel angry, hurt, disillusioned, betrayed, and even fearful for the implications of this nation and this world.
And while all of those emotions are understandable, you can’t give up the fight for biblical values just YET, folks! This is a HIGHLY CRITICAL time in human history! People need to hear the gospel message NOW MORE THAN EVER!
“But just what ARE the long-term implications of today’s Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage?”, you may ask. And the answer is THIS: people will soon try to legalize plural marriage/polygamy, pedo/incest marriage, bestiality marriage, and even inanimate object marriage. And christian persecution (persecution OF Christians, not BY Christians) will INCREASE!
What are the evidences of this? They are as follows:
1). “Threeway marriages” have ALREADY been in the making……as evidenced here:
2). Legalization of plural marriages is ALREADY being called for:
3). Pedo/incest marriages are ALSO already being called for:
- 18-year NY girl set to marry her BIOLOGICAL FATHER in NJ
- 40-year old woman set to marry her own SON
- 72-year old grandmother to “have surrogate baby” with grandson
4). “Inanimate Object” marriage is already being called for (no joke!)
- Tokyo man “marries” videogame character (what has the world come to?)
- Florida man demands right to marry porn-laden computer
- Man marries a pillow (Yes, a pillow! This is no joke, folks!) — http://metro.co.uk/2010/03/09/man-marries-pillow-154906/
5). BESTIALITY ‘MARRIAGE’ AND/OR RELATIONSHIPS:
1). Man “claims” he had consensual relationship with dolphin “Dolly”, claims dolphin seduced him
2). British woman marries DOLPHIN/etc. — http://thefw.com/weirdest-marriages-of-the-world-photos-videos/
3). Human-animal marriage (in general) — http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human%E2%80%93animal_marriage
As for the INCREASE in Christian persecution that’s going to occur (EVEN among many “Christians” themselves, or those who “claim” to be “Christian”?) That will be DUE to the fact of John 1:5 which expressly states: “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not”.
And also John 15: 18-23 which proclaims: “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also”
So in other words, people of darkness and “wayward/lost *Christians*” don’t truly KNOW Jesus Christ (“the truth and the light”) and so BECAUSE they don’t know Jesus Christ, they won’t ADHERE to Jesus Christ OR the Lord’s servants. They will be like the epitome of Isaiah 5:20 which states “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!”
So in other words, they HATE “the truth and the light” (Jesus Christ Almighty) because they don’t understand Him or his gospel message. The bible seems “so very EVIL” to them. They don’t get it. And BECAUSE they don’t get it, things that are condemned as “SIN” in the bible seem righteous and holy to THEM! That’s what the Isaiah passage is talking about, essentially. And to think that was prophesied in the times of the Old Testament is just AMAZING! Anyways, moving on……..
Just look all throughout the bible. ALL servants of God suffered some sort of persecution (ESPECIALLY during the times of the New Testament!) In the Old Testament, the prophet Daniel was thrown into the Lions Den. Why? Because he refused to bow down & worship the King of Babylon. He still prayed to the Lord God of the bible, ONLY. When some of the King’s servants caught on to this, they accused Daniel of breaking the law and thus, Daniel was thrown into the Lions Den. But Daniel trusted the Lord 100% and so the Lord closed the mouths of the lions. See what happens when we show a great strength of trust & faith? 😉
Anyways, in the New Testament, John the Baptist lost his very head for his testimony of Jesus Christ! The prophet Steven was ALSO martyred! As were several others! However, the point is, IF you are trying to live in 100% accordance with the bible and with the Lord Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua, that WON’T go without punishment “by the world”.
James 4:4 states “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God”.
John 15:19 says “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you”
But lets just put this differently, for a minute. If you are NOT suffering “persecution” in some way, shape or form, you are NOT truly living by the bible and the bible’s standards of faith, trust & repentance! Think of all the mega-churches today…….how many “attendees” they have, how much $$$$ they’re making……
Some people may turn and say to themselves: “WOW…..the Lord must be doing some AMAZING work in the mega-churches today, as they seem to be growing more **properous** than ever!”
But what these poor folks don’t realize is that mega-churches are prosperous $$$$ for a REASON and that reason is NOT due to the God of the Bible but rather to SATAN!!!!!!
For IF these mega-preachers cared ANYTHING for the “lost sheep”, (meaning, all the “lost souls” out there without the saving knowledge/protective covering of Jesus Christ Almighty), they’d be preaching about SIN, REPENTANCE OF SIN, THE IMPORTANCE OF FULL-WATER-IMMERSION BAPTISM **IMMEDIATELY** UPON FIRST BELIEVING IN JESUS CHRIST, would be teaching about the Lord’s TRUE holidays (Passover, Tabernacles, etc.), would be teaching about ALL THE FALSE CATHOLIC CHURCH DOCTRINES, would be adhering to the Lord’s TRUE Sabbath (Friday sundown to Saturday twilight), would be preaching about the ABOMINATIONS of homosexuality and abortion and how they’ve completley RUINED this country, as well as this world!
And the REASON you will never hear them preaching the Lord’s TRUE message of Salvation, etc. is BECAUSE they are “government-funded”. However, oddly enough, even ones that AREN’T government-funded have seemed to jump on the “sin is okay” bandwagon in today’s moral “culture war”. Only a VERY few selective “ministries” are smart enough, brave enough and BOLD ENOUGH to “go against the tide of LGBT/ETC. immortality”.
People are oftentimes talking about a rising “crime problem” in today’s world. But essentially, it’s not a crime problem but a SIN PROBLEM. Why aren’t more people seeing that? We’ve become BLIND as a nation, and as a world.
People are talking about “change”, saying things “we’re changing for the better, as a nation”, “we’re making progress as a nation”, etc. but the ONLY true “PROGRESS” this nation seems to be making is sending itself STRAIGHT TO HELL in a handbasket!
But moving on to my next point……….Each “biblical-roots” Christian is going to suffer persecution in today’s world. It’s just that the DEGREE of persecution will vary from person to person. Some will be fired from their jobs or demoted (as has already happened in many cases, in today’s news headlines). Some will be disowned by their family, church and/or friends (or at the very least, seen as a total outcast). Some will be assaulted or harassed. Some will be imprisoned. Some will lose their homes and/or business to foreclosure to the bank(s). Some will even be beheaded/lose their VERY LIVES for the sake of Christ!
In fact, I’ve written about this in a previous post: (a must-read!!!!)
However, also please remember that WHEN you are persecuted for the Lord Jesus Christ, COUNT IT AS JOY, for it says in Matthew 5:11-12: “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you”.
And remember “biblical-roots Christians”, DON’T GIVE UP! AT **ANY** COST! No matter what! EVEN if it costs you your very LIFE! Because remember………YOU giving up is EXACTLY what Satan and his demons want, so don’t let them win AT ANY PRICE! Afterall, this isn’t a game and your Eternal Salvation’s at stake, folks!
I leave you with THIS:
