America’s Judges recently made a decision that allow those who are homosexual to marry one another. I felt led to address this and let everyone one know where we at Gospel of Peace Ministries stand on this issue.
As a minister of the gospel I can only go by what God has said on this issue. It is the truth that sets us free. We must as believers follow Gods truth without reservation and at all cost even unto death.
Let us look at what Gods word say’s about homosexual behavior. Let us remember Messiah came and died on the cross to enable us to walk away from sin.
Leviticus 18:22 (NASB)
22 'You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
First God say’s that what we call homosexuality is an abomination.
Paul Confirms this in Romans
Romans 1:26-27 (NASB)
26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural,
27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
If we read through Romans 1 and 2 we find out why God gave them over to their passions because of their unbelief. They served other gods
Romans 1:25 (NASB)
25 For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
Romans 1:21-23 (NASB)
21 for even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,
23 and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.
I want us to pay attention to Paul’s words here. Look at verse 21” for even though they knew God”
Romans 1:24 (NASB)
24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them.
Have you noticed that certain denominations have accepted Homosexual Bishops and Pastors years before this last decision by our judges came down.Here is a list of those denominations who either accept homosexual clergy or except homosexual behavior as ok or not a sin against God.
Let’s continue to look at what Paul says
Romans 1:29-32 (NASB)
29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips,
30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,
31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful;
32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
Pay close attention to verse 32 “although they know the ordinance of God” They knew the ordinance of God. Yet they continue in sin and “but also give hearty approval to those who practice them”
Sounds like many Christian denominations in America. We have churches almost on every street corner yet Homosexual marriage is legal, abortion is legal etc. Christians in America have judged those who are in homosexual sin and the list above yet can we see the difference between the church and the state. Paul continues in chapter 2 concerning Judgement
Romans 2:1-5 (NASB)
1 Therefore you have no excuse, every one of you who passes judgment, for in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.
2 And we know that the judgment of God rightly falls upon those who practice such things.
3 But do you suppose this, O man, when you pass judgment on those who practice such things and do the same yourself, that you will escape the judgment of God?
4 Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?
5 But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God,
What is the condition of the church in America? Christians are judging our government and the world for the sinful condition of America. Have we looked at the condition of the church? We have homosexual men and woman as pastors and leaders in the church. The church in America practice the same things the world does. Have we made the church as whole in America an abomination to God? Do we think that we will escape the judgement of God?Has the church as a whole humbled themselves and repented?
1 Corinthians 6:9 (NASB)
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,
It is interesting that before verse nine Paul talks about Judges in the courts and how the church relies on unbelieving judges to judge the simplest matters. Yet we are called as a church to judge the Angels.We have done this as a church in America and we wonder why our judges determined that homosexual marriage and abortion is ok.
When is the church as a whole going to repent when are we going to humble ourselves.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (NASB)
14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
The church in America has not repented not only have we not repented but the condition of America is the churches fault. We must take responsibility and until we do God will not heal our Land. Not only will our land continue to degrade but when Judgement does come it will come to the House of God.
1 Peter 4:17 (KJV)
17 for the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
Judgement is coming to America and it is coming swiftly and His Judgement will come to the church first. We will be held accountable for the spiritual condition of this nation. We will be judged by our own disobedience as well. We must walk justly with the LORD at this time. It is time to get the house of God in America in order.
If you are in a denomination that condones these behaviors separate yourselves and repent do not associate with these denominations. If you are too close to the fire it will burn you.
Numbers 16:22-26 (NASB)
Seek the Lord and ask HIM to search your heart and see if there I any wicked way in you. Then humble yourself and repent. Now is the time to choose this day whom you shall serve.
1 John 3:3-4 (NASB)
3 And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.
4 Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.
1 John 3:7 (NASB)
7 Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous;
