In a remarkable statement, it appears that “Wising up” to the AIDS pandemic is Elton John’s rally call.
Since the disease was first diagnosed and even before it was given the famous acronym AIDS, the “Gay Man’s Disease” has taken the lives of millions.
In the Bible, the cause is still the same.
Romans 1:26-27 “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”
When you still do the sin of homosexuality, the outcome is still the same.
To change the outcome, a man must repent and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. A man must be born again by the Holy Spirit. A man must abstain from sexual immorality. Searching for a cure is commendable, however, when a cure is found, it emboldens a man or a woman to pursue the sin that cause the disease in the first place.
Proverbs 1:7 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
Proverbs 9:10-12 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, and years of life will be added to you. If you are wise, you are wise for yourself, and if you scoff, you will bear it alone.”
The fear of the Lord is the missing link.
When a man is not afraid of God, his heart is set to do evil continually.
Those that practice MSM consigned themselves to die, and so, with nothing to lose, they pursue their sins. With an “I don’t care” attitude, their hearts chase after sin. “Not caring” is a deliberate abandonment to hopelessness. But regardless of their hopelessness, there is still hope in the Lord Jesus Christ. As long as blood is running warm in your veins and there is air in your lungs, you still have a chance to repent and turn to Christ.
Romans 6:23 says, “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
To wise up means that you discontinue sin, put your faith and full trust on the Lord Jesus Christ to save you from your sins, and you live a life of holiness until it is over.
If you have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, do not give up on yourself.
Repent and come to the Lord. He will abundantly pardon you of all your sins. The time to do it is today because tomorrow is promised to no one.
Hebrews 2:3 tells us “How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?”
There is no other way to escape the wrath of God. That’s why the Lord sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to die for you and to carry your sins away. However, you must repent and be born again according to John 3:3.
