I do not think that the Body of Christ is aware of the ramifications of this all important vote.
The Supreme Court Of The United States (SCOTUS) will be set to hear oral arguments on Proposition 9 and certain provisions in DOMA. I just read an article about what took place in Canada when a man passed out flyers that shared about the Bible being against the sin of homosexuality. Two homosexual men were offended and took him to court. The brother in the Lord lost the case and was fined.
A friend on FB posted this link and I believe that the Lord is warning the church in the United States of what is to come.
The Lord spoke to me about the election of 2012 that the election that took place paved the way for what is to come.
In the article above, I hope that you paid enough attention to note that should the Supreme Court strike Proposition 8 down as unconstitutional and strike down certain provisions of DOMA, the level of persecution of believers in Christ and pastors will exponentially rise to unprecedented levels in the US. In Canada, the courts have deemed preaching against the sin of homosexuality as hate speech.
This sets the precedence for persecution that would make the dark ages look like child’s play.
Free speech is about to be erased and we will be subjected to persecution. We must also understand that these are the last days. These are the days of Noah and Lot. We cannot be afraid of their faces. We must preach the truth regardless of the punitive damages the world imposes upon those who believe the Word of God.
It is interesting to note that oral arguments will begin one week before Passover.
The History Channel will show the miniseries called “The Bible” beginning 03/03/2013.
Oral arguments are set for March 26 and a decision by the SCOTUS should be reached by June 27.
Folks, this is no coincidence and the Lord was never caught off guard.
We must however, take note of the fact that since Canada is a dark place, the same darkness is making its way here in the United States.
As Jesus said, “The night comes when no man could work.”
Paul warned us in Romans 13:11-14.
“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lust.”
And this is exactly what the church in the United States has done. We are sleeping and this is the price.
When 50% of pastors struggle with porn. When 70% or more of professed believers struggle with porn. When 93% of African Americans voted to re-elect Barack Obama as POTUS. When 3% of the US population that is LGBT has a bigger influence on the immorality course of this nation than the morality influence of the church, it is clear that we are in serious trouble.
The devil doesn’t mind if we sing praise to God while we engage in sexual immorality. The devil doesn’t mind if we preach watered down sermons that has no conviction of the Holy Spirit. The devil doesn’t mind if we preachers with dog collars and miters on are Emotional Manipulators, Intellectual Manipulators, and Revelatory Manipulators. The devil doesn’t mind you having a “praise break.”
In fact, right in the middle of your praise break the devil is holding your hands and dancing right along with you.
The devil doesn’t mind so long as we never start living the truth before we preach the truth. In the church, you have many people that are quick to live in sin, curse God, and then turn around and praise God with you. You have many people that is attached to corporate organizations that fund the LGBT agenda. In more ways than you can shake a stick, the products that we purchase will have some connections to the money trail that fund sexual immorality. Just like the purchase of porn is a Seamless Connection to alcohol, drugs, prostitution, strip clubs, human trafficking, child porn and molestation, the simple purchase of certain items funds the agenda of LGBT and abortion.
The taxes that we pay, if the Lord could show the deep connections to worldwide immorality, we would cringe. However, somewhere down the line, we may only have had a hand in someone’s involvement in the sins of the world if we participated in purchasing sin. The disconnection that saves us is the fact that we have no direct connection to their sins, unless we did purchase porn or other sinful things.
The believer’s vulnerability is self inflicted and the devil took full advantage.
I say again, that the Lord was never surprised. He wasn’t surprised with Samson, Saul, or David in their sins.
So He is not surprised with ours today.
After reading of the imminent possibility that the 31 states that placed in their state constitution an amendment protecting marriage between one man and one woman is in jeopardy, that everyone knew that there was something up the sleeves of LGBT. The Spirit of God always warn me that something is going on. The thing that I haven’t been able to get is what is that thing that is going on that I don’t know about yet.
When it is just too quiet it is an indication that something is about to happen.
Well, the Bible tells us “When there is peace and safety, then comes sudden destruction.”
It is not a coincidence that around Passover, we are seeing these issues come to head. And for the most part, it is getting to the point that we are so comfortable being tied to the posts with our eyes out like Samson is too comfortable. It is dark outside and getting darker. We are reaching the apex or culmination of the end of the ages. The only thing that the Lord told us to do is to be ready.
Jesus said, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”
We do not know when the Lord will come, that is why we must stand and occupy until He comes. This is no time to pack our bags. This is the moment to stand in the face of opposition and speak the truth. We will not run. We will not hide. We will fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life. We will not buckle under the pressure of persecution. We will not look for the convenience and comfort, and safety of the inner sanctuary. What is to come must come and we must be prepared to stand for what is right.
Remember Revelation 21:8. Cowards have no place in the kingdom.
This is the valley of the shadow of death and we are to fear no evil, for He is with us.
Let’s stand and fight.
