Have A Wonderful Day!!! Pray for The Family!!!
Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Ephesians 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Ephesians 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
Ephesians 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
The Family according to the word of God, and his design is in Crisis.
Today we are dealing with a topic that many will find disturbing. Many Christians believe that our political lives and our spiritual lives should not mix. We can’t help it. Sadly They automatically do. We cannot live in a spiritual vacuum without it affecting our social conscience and today in America, the family is in crisis.
I. God’s Design for Marriage
The first thing we must realize is that government did not create marriage. God created marriage between Adam and Eve and people for hundreds of years before there was a political or social organization were practicing marriage. It is one man and one woman.
Matthew 19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
Matthew 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Every scripture reference that speaks to marriage speaks in relation to one man and woman.
Three ancient civilizations gave themselves over to homosexuality:
Sodom and Gomorrah, Greece and Rome. All perished.
“Marriage is the traditional building block of humanity. It is intended both to unite couples and bring children into the world.”
Ephesians 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
Ephesians 5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
A woman provides stability for a man and a man provides intimacy for a woman. We were created to “Fit” together physically, emotionally and spiritually to create a family unit.
Children need the stability and assurance that comes from having a mother and a father.
Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 1:8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
Proverbs 1:9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
*Boys who grow up without a dad are at least twice as likely as other boys to end up in prison.
*60% of adults and 72 % of adolescent murderers never knew or lived with their father.
*In the toughest inner-city, 10% of kids from two parent homes get into trouble while 90% from broken homes do.
*Girls raised without a father in the home are five times as likely to become pregnant while still adolescents.
*Children from broken homes are nearly twice as likely to drop out of high school.
God designed a family to be one man and one woman united to fulfill each others needs, produce children and train future generations.
II- The Homosexual Fallacy
People believe that a person’s sexual preference has no bearing on me and should be left to their own desires. The homosexual activist says that two loving dads are better than an arguing mother and father. They also say that this only gives homosexuals the same right as everyone else. These statements are all false.
Some will argue they were born that way; we are born sinners but does that mean we should act on it? Serial killers, rapists, adultery should they all be allowed to act on their sin because “They were born that way”. Sometimes things will happen in life that can give us certain sinful desires due to a awful experience, some kind of abuse, neglect.
God did not design us to have sexual relationships with people of our own gender. Physically we are not created that way, and God does not condone that behavior. Just as the fornicator enjoys his sin and was born a sinner the bible is very clear about not fornicating. Just because we get a sinful desire never means to act out on it. Seek the Lord, get into prayer, talk with a Biblical counselor.
Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Leviticus 18:23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.
Leviticus 18:24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
Leviticus 18:25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
Leviticus 18:26 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
Leviticus 18:27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)
Leviticus 18:28 That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spue out the nations that were before you.
Leviticus 18:29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
Leviticus 18:30 Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.
God does not condone heterosexual or homosexual sin.
Homosexual activists have claimed that people are born homosexual. This is against every scripture that you can read.
What this sin does do is destroy the family. It brings about more sin, more death, and the wrath of God. The enemy wants to destroy the family, by doing so it gives him more power, more separation from God.
Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Romans 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Romans 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Romans 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
If we think about it honestly The Lord created everything in order, for all things to work together as he created. A man with a man or a woman with a woman does not even fit together as we were created. Who is the author of confusion? Satan our enemy causes confusion and he is the only pleased by such sin. If he can break up the family it gives him satisfaction. Why would we ever do anything to give our greatest enemy satisfaction. So mush going on in this world against our Precious Lord not just gay marriage, not just homosexuality, but the murder of babies, adultery, fornication, none of it should we ever partake in or be okay with.
I am not in anyway saying to harm someone who sins in such a grievous way.
I am not saying to hold signs calling out awful names; I am saying to be willing to defend the truth not to partake in any activity where any grievous sin is going on. To defend the truth of the Righteous and holy God. I believe it to be wrong if a wedding of same sex people are taking place and we as Christians are invited we should never be part of it.
1Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
1Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
1Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
“There have been many attempts by researchers to prove that homosexuals are born that way. None has proven the case.”
The Effects on Children
The idea that children are better off in a loving homosexual home than a feuding traditional family is taking the best of one situation and comparing it to the worst of another. It is comparing apples to oranges.
The Netherlands and Belgium have begun the practice of gay marriage and given it equal status of male-female unions. The results are indisputable.
Norway, Denmark and Sweden began the practice in the nineties. The consequences for the traditional family have been devastating.
*In Norway, 80% of firstborn children are born out of wedlock. Which is also not the Lord’s plan.
*60% of subsequent births are out of wedlock.
“It appears that tampering with God’s plans for males and females spells doom for the family.”
*Many couples no longer marry, they simply cohabitate. Which is also wrong, often times when people just chose to live together it often times ends up easier to break up and go live with another person without the blessings of the Lord. Which is fornication and without following God’s plan never works out well.
WHAT SHOULD WE DO?
2Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2Chronicles 7:15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.
2Chronicles 7:16 For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
WE NEED TO BE PRAYING FOR THE TRADITIONAL FAMILY AS IT WAS CREATED BY THE LORD. THE FAMILY THE LORD TOLD US TO HAVE.
The saddest thing we can do is sit back and say “They are adults so let them be, they are not hurting anyone”. We can never take that stand, it does hurt many and it grieves the Lord.
Now in 2019 it has gotten more widespread and now in the news we see where some have married their pets, have become so warped that people want to make pedophilia legal. People have said it is just a sexual choice as homosexuality. NEVER should people anywhere be okay with marrying children, having sex with them, This should outrage the Christian.
Lets start today pray for the Lord’s design of marriage, his ways and not the ways of this wicked world. People this truly is not a “I am an adult and not hurting anyone” philosophy. The enemy is using this to destroy yet another thing that the Lord designed for good, the enemy is turning it around and making it bad.
PLEASE PRAY FOR THE FAMILY, FOR THE LOST, FOR THE PRECIOUS CHILDREN!!!
LORD SPEAK TO ME
Lord, speak to me, that I may speak
in living echoes of your tone;
as you have sought, so let me seek
your erring children lost and lone.
O teach me, Lord, that I may teach
the precious things you do impart;
and wing my words, that they may reach
the hidden depths of many a heart.
O lead me, Lord, that I may lead
the wandering and the wavering feet;
O feed me, Lord, that I may feed
the hungering ones with manna sweet.
O fill me with your fullness, Lord,
until my very heart o’erflow
in kindling thought and glowing word
your love to tell, your praise to show.
O use me, Lord, use even me,
just as you will, and when and where;
until your blessed face I see,
your rest, your joy, your glory share.
Love and prayers
