“A judge overturned Missouri’s ban on same-sex marriage on Wednesday in a ruling that could add the state to a growing list of those were same-sex marriages are legal. St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison, who heard arguments on Sept. 29, determined the law is unconstitutional.”
More sin will envelope this country.
It’s judicial activism to declare that a ban on SSM is unconstitutional.
Thanks be to God that judges can’t overturn the Lord, and His Word.
Homosexuality is a sin. Just like adultery, fornication, lying, bisexuality, extortioners, drunkenness, sodomy, covetous, murderers, and mischievous revilers will not inherit the kingdom of God (see 1 Corinthians 6:9-10).
Earthly judges will be overturned by the Judge of all the earth, the Lord Jesus Christ.
As I have said before, this did not catch God by surprise.
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”
While sinners are pursuing destroying this nation with more sin, God is still stretching out His hand to man through His Son.
While man runs from God, while they have blood running warm in their veins, and while they have air in their lungs, unrepentant man has a chance to reconsider their wicked ways.
That’s why it is important for the true church to keep the faith in Christ. Preach the gospel to all the world, and pray that they would turn from sin before death seals their fate.
The course of this world is set by the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience. Those that follow the ways of the wicked one must repent. Those that refuse to repent have been condemned already (see John 3:18-19). They can come out of their own condemnation when they come to the light of the glorious gospel.
As far as these judges are concerned, it is clear that sin is more important than righteousness.
Proverbs 18:5 says, “It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, or to overthrow the righteous in judgment.”
The ban of SSM was from the righteous. A judge overturns the will of the righteous in a show of partiality to the wicked.
“It is not good.”
Most people know that when unmarried couples engage in sex, the risks of STDs is there. With the sin of homosexuality, it’s common knowledge that STDs will happen. Nobody pays any attention to the the fact that sin brings forth death. As smart and intelligent as these judges are, it seems to all of us that no one is really concerned about the fact that the God of all the earth will pour out His judgment on sin.
And that consequential judgment comes when sin is committed.
God will not let the guilty go unpunished.
Judges that pervert the right ways of the Lord are not exempt.
Judges, out of all people, should know that when you are convicted of a crime, the punishment must be meted out.
These judges are doing the opposite.
They ignore the judgment that is to come in eternity so that people on earth could pursue sinful pleasure on earth.
Hence, the Judge of all the earth will now issue the punishment that men and women deserve for ignoring the Bible.
Judges are lawyers. So when they deal with law, they know what the law says. These lawyers spent thousands of dollars on learning the law. They are experts at crafting stories and asking questions to either smoke screen the truth or to get the truth.
There is no smoke screen with the Word of God.
The Bible said “The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
They say that crime doesn’t pay.
The Bible says “The wages of sin is death…”
Sin’s wages is death.
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, after this the judgment.”
Whether you are an agnostic or an atheist, even they believe death is coming. The thing that they deliberately ignore is the Judge of all the earth.
You can ignore God all you want, He is not going to go away. And the judgment is not going to go away either.
So if death is true on one hand, judgment is true on the other.
So the only way out of judgment is repentance. The only way to avoid judgment is to ask the Lord for forgiveness of sins. To be born again by the Holy Spirit.
More activist judges will declare bans of SSM unconstitutional. More states will permit SSM. Eventually, the US Constitution will legalize SSM. The church will continue to pray to the God of heaven and earth. The church will continue to be faithful to the Lord of all the earth. The people of the Lord will continue to be a shining light for people in darkness. As long as the Lord tarries, the people of God will be the preserving salt in the earth.
The heart of deceitful and desperately wicked men and women will insist of their evil ways, but as the Bible says, the Lord will come with ten thousands of His saints to execute judgment on the earth. That will be a terrible day because God is gracious to man but His grace has an end date.
“Behold now is acceptable time. Behold now is the day of salvation.”
“How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?”
When the Lord sends His Son, it’s game over.
