Since there has been a good head of steam to legitimize the sin of homosexuality, the foundation was laid years ago when adultery and fornication became a regular occurrence on the job, in church, and in other places.
The continued erosion of righteousness, loss of morals, and a clear disregard for the Word of God undoubtedly was a plan of the devil long ago.
Here is a Scripture to consider.
2 Peter 3:1-4 says “Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers (mockers) will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge…” (Proverbs 1:7a)
As a little child, I would remember that when dad or mom would tell us to behave and then walk out the door, if we misbehaved, we would be in big trouble.
Today it’s no different.
The Lord Jesus went back to heaven to be seated at the right hand of God, but He said He would be coming back.
Well, just like what the Spirit of God said through Peter, many mocked the coming of the Lord. They are walking according to their own lusts. They all say, “Nothing’s changed. We might as well keep on doing what we were doing all along.”
Only, it’s gotten worse.
In the blink of an eye, homosexuality is gripping the nation. The next thing on the horizon is the forcing of the church to accept homosexuality. Talk about forcing something down someone’s throat?
Sexual immorality is one of the signs of the end times.
Jesus alluded to this in Luke 17:26-30 “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”
In Noah’s day, the people’s imaginations were only evil continually. In Lot’s day, perversion called homosexuality permeated the region. In both instances, destruction came.
The push is on to legalize and normalize homosexuality in this nation. In other parts of the world, we see that the sin of homosexuality is normalized. But at a great price. Proponents of the sin of homosexuality hate the Scriptures.
In the Word of God is God’s mind about the sin of homosexuality.
The sin of homosexuality is “an abomination.” Leviticus 18:22.
In the book of Romans, chapter one, those that practice the sin of homosexuality receive “…in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.” Romans 1:27.
As I have said previously, proponents of homosexuality can make all the laws they want to legalize homosexual marriage, but they cannot write laws to stop the “penalty of their error which was due.”
In other words, they cannot stop diseases from manifesting in their bodies should they insist on continuing in sexual sins.
The two eras of time, Noah and Lot, is a clear sign that we are in the last days and that the coming of the Lord is nearer than when we first believed.
Jesus said, “Because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12.
1 John 3:4, “Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.”
The fool-safe proof that the sin of homosexuality is lawlessness is the manifestation of sexually transmitted diseases.
Because people do not believe the Word of God, the diseases that manifest ought to be deterrence enough. However, we see that they refuse the admonition and prohibition of the Scriptures, and the disease manifests. “The penalty of their error which was due.”
Many people are inflicted with HIV/AIDS and other STDs, some as a direct involvement in the sin of homosexuality, others as a result of “collateral damage.”
The suffering continues but it is a clear sign that the Lord Jesus in on His way to the earth and that these are the last days.
It is only through the love expressed by the Father that we can have eternal life.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Think about it.
How much time do you have left on earth? Whether the coming of the Lord, or your death? Whichever comes first.
The last days is happening and there is nothing that you could do to stop it. The real question is this.
Will you be in Christ or will you suffer the eternal penalty unnecessarily?
It’s up to you.
