God doesn’t make mistakes

What’s An Abomination Anyway?

Rev 17:4  And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 

‘abomination’ = a foul thing, a detestable thing,1a) of idols and things pertaining to idolatry [Thayer’s Greek Definitions]

‘filthiness of her fornication’ [Thayer’s Greek Def.] = impurity, illicit sexual intercourse, 1a) adultery, fornication, homosexuality, lesbianism, intercourse with animals etc. 1b) sexual intercourse with close relatives; Lev. 18 1c) sexual intercourse with a divorced man or woman; Mar_10:11-12 2) metaphorically the worship of idols, 2a) of the defilement of idolatry, as incurred by eating the sacrifices offered to idols (as in taking of the wafer or ‘host’ of communion in the Catholic church?) Is the communion wafer or host in any way connected to worship of Molech [1] or other false god? A golden cup” = [Thayer Definition] 1) a cup, a drinking vessel 2) metaphorically one’s lot or experience, whether joyous or adverse, divine appointments, whether favourable or unfavourable, are likened to a cup which God presents one to drink: so of prosperity and adversity. 

Jer 51:7  Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD’S hand, ‘cup’ = often figuratively a lot (as if a potion); also some unclean bird, probably an owl (perhaps from the cup like cavity of its eye): – cup, (small) owl. [Strong’s Concordance] One’s ‘lot’ in life means one’s fate, what one has been handed.

The significance for Roman Catholics today in participating each week in the purely pagan ritual of celebrating the Eucharist of cannibalism offered to demons, has its own special significance. Whether you want to know it or not, Catholics are paying homage to the supreme demonic deities of the Catholic Church, the real gods hidden behind the facades of false worship.” [2] 

God told me very clearly one time after I had communion at a local Catholic shrine, that He didn’t want me doing that, for it was “an Abomination to Him!” In obedience to His Voice, I haven’t partaken of communion since that day God spoke so clearly to me. I wonder why it is that so many Christians don’t seem to have heard this pronouncement. At any rate, it’s clear that this ‘woman’ (a woman in Scripture used in this context is always referring to a church or a religious body) is full of ‘abominations, filthiness, fornication, idolatry and more. Is not the Catholic church rife with these abominations? She is also the same church that persecuted the saints, being “drunken with their blood” – Rev. 17:6 The Catholic church has persecuted and murdered more ‘saints’ than any other entity in all of world history [3].

1Ki 14:24  And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel. 

Jdg 19:22  Now as they were making their hearts merry, behold, the men of the city, certain sons of Belial, beset the house round about, and beat at the door, and spake to the master of the house, the old man, saying, Bring forth the man that came into thine house, that we may know him. (‘know’ = to know a person carnally in this instance)
Jdg 19:23  And the man, the master of the house, went out unto them, and said unto them, Nay, my brethren, nay, I pray you, do not so wickedly; seeing that this man is come into mine house, do not this folly. 
Jdg 19:24  Behold, here is my daughter a maiden, and his concubine; them I will bring out now, and humble ye them, and do with them what seemeth good unto you: but unto this man do not so vile a thing. 

‘sons of Belial’ = notice how God calls those who do this ‘vile’ acts are ‘sons of Belial’ – meaning the demonic spirit behind the acts, the demon who moves people to do them, is none other than Belial himself!
‘Belial’ = worthlessness, base, wicked
‘wickedly’ = bad, evil, injurious, displeasing, broken to pieces
‘know’ = in this instance means to know a person ‘carnally’ (or sexually)
‘vile’ = profane and immoral acts, disgraceful [Brown-Driver-Briggs Dictionary]
‘folly’ = same as vile.

We can see that God considers acts of sodomy to be ‘vile’ and ‘wicked,’ and that the demonic influence or demon spirit behind all such acts, be it sodomy or any other sexual perversion, is the principality Belial. 

Leviticus 18:22 – “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Leviticus 20:13  – “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” PLEASE NOTE THAT I DO NOT ADVOCATE VIOLENCE OF ANY KIND AGAINST GAYS OR LESBIANS, ETC!! I include this verse only to show how seriously offensive this behavior was (and is) to God who gave the Law to Moses, and although we live in an age of Grace, there are still penalties for sin. Continuous illness and other troubles often plague habitual sinners, even Christians suffer in this way due to non-repentance of various sins. In addition, after the second resurrection of the unrighteous dead, Judgment will be meted to those who never repented of their sinning and never turned to Jesus Christ for forgiveness (Rev 21:7  & 28). The ‘putting to death’ of those who committed certain sins under the old covenant was done to keep the rest of the congregation from becoming corrupted. “The purity of God’s people in the Promised Land was vitally important, as was the continuance of bloodlines (one of which would lead to the Messiah). That is why God demanded the death penalty for those who engaged in homosexual intercourse.” [4] God wanted a HOLY people to call His own, and He hasn’t changed His mind about that – all who are called by His Name, are to be holy, as He is holy – Lev 20:26  You are to be holy to Me, for I, Adonai, am holy, and have set you apart from the peoples, so that you would be Mine. [TLV]  1Th 4:7  For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. Eph 5:3  But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints. The application for today’s Christian communities, is that within their gates, sin is to be disciplined and eradicated, not accepted as normal! 1Co 5:13  But those who are outside, God judges. Put away the wicked fellow from among yourselves

God takes sin seriously! Homosexuals are not doing right in His eyes, neither are Lesbians – Rom 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….

Should we as Christians allow ourselves to be swayed by public opinion and the laws of the state that say there’s nothing wrong with Sodomy and other perverse sexual acts, when our Lord and Savior said otherwise? Are we to obey man’s law and thumb our noses at God’s law? 

Act 5:29  Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. Gal 1:10  For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. Jas 4:4  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. Simply put: If you’re a friend of the world then you cannot be a friend of God or of Christ. Apostle Paul in his epistle to the Church at Corinth – 1Co 5:9  I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 

Eph 5:11  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 

Definition of reprove = confute, admonish: – convict, convince, tell a fault, rebuke, reprove. Definition of rebuke = express sharp disapproval or criticism of (someone) because of their behavior or actions, bring correction, scold. fellowship = From G4862 and G2841; to share in company with, that is, co-participate in: – communicate (have fellowship) with, be partaker of.

Did you get that? Christians are not only to not eat and have fellowship with fornicators, covetous, idolaters, etc., in the Church, but we are to tell them that what they’re doing is wrong in a ‘spirit of meekness’ – Gal 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. God’s desires the full restoration of every soul! 2 Pet 3:9. Instead, what’s happening in most of our churches these days is that all manner of uncleanness is welcomed and accepted as being normal. Rom 1:32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. 

“judgment” = condemnation of wrong, the sentence of a judge, the punishment with which one is sentenced
“death” = the misery of the soul arising from sin, which begins on earth but lasts and increases after the death of the body in hell
‘have pleasure’ = From G4862 and G2106; to think well of in common, that is, assent to, feel gratified with: – allow, assent, be pleased, have pleasure.

Isn’t that exactly what most Christian churches are doing these days – allowing and assenting to (agreeing with) behavior which Christ condemns in His Word?

2Co 6:14  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 
2Co 6:15  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 
2Co 6:16  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 
2Co 6:17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. *Note that any words you see in the Bible that are in gray italics were added by translators and were not in the original manuscripts.

unclean = morally (lewd) or specifically (demonic)): – foul, unclean. [Strong’s Concordance Def.]

It’s plain as day that believers in Christ, who Paul was addressing in these passages, are to get away from everything that’s unclean and unholy. God calls the act of Sodomy an “unclean, vile, foul, detestable, idolatrous ABOMINATION! In fact, anything that is worshiped other than the true God, is Idolatry according to the Bible, God’s Word. I guess that would include the holy communion ‘wafer’ which Catholics worship (adore) in the Catholic Mass. No, that tiny wafer is not Christ anymore than a plaster statue of Mary is really Mary. Those bowing down to the Eucharist in adoration are adoring a piece of bread that’s supposed to be the literal flesh of Christ via Transubstantiation [5], which is an Abomination! Sadly, many Catholics don’t read their bibles or have a personal relationship with God but unquestioningly believe whatever their priest tells them. Dear Catholic, if you’re reading this, please read a non-Catholic version of the bible and pray for understanding and for revelation. In the bible you’ll see that no man on earth has greater authority than God, even though the Pope makes such a claim [6] and ONLY God has the power to forgive men’s sins! 

Those who speak out against the LGBT and Rainbow movements are called “haters.” I know some will read this article and accuse me of not being compassionate or loving but which is more loving, telling someone the truth so that their soul may be saved, or keeping quiet so it ends up in Hell? Eph 5:5  For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Eph 5:6  Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Eph 5:7  Be not ye therefore partakers with them. ⇐ Paul was telling Christians not to be partakers with those who commit these sins, and those listed in the following verse. 

Co 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, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 

“Same sex sins are listed along with other sins such as fornication, idolatry, covetousness and drunkenness. Same sex sins are dishonoring, repugnant sins but they are still forgivable. Surely, we have all been covetous at some point in our life, but that does not mean we are automatically going to hell. Scripture is not talking about a single event or many acts of sin, but an ongoing pattern of sin. God is talking about those who never come to Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit turn from their sin. We cannot do this on our own. We are totally dependent on God to stop.

1 Timothy 1:10. Same sex sins are not an acceptable, alternative lifestyle either. It is sin. Here is another passage.

But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous man, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers . . . (NASB) 1 Timothy 1:8-11

It is clear that homosexuality is not the result of biological heredity. It is sin. God did not make these men and women homosexuals from birth. At its root, homosexuality flows out of the sinful nature of the individual given to it. It is a result of a rejection of God at some point in life. [7]

Not only is homosexuality NOT just another sin, it serves in the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, as the primary symbol of end-stage rebellion against God triggering the outpouring of His wrath.  Moreover, the challenge to Biblical orthodoxy represented by an increasingly militant pro-homosexual culture serves as a key litmus test for whether believers will stand with God or the Antichrist in the last days.

It is incumbent upon remnant believers to warn the church against the heresy of “gay theology” and to boldly and forcefully advocate for the Biblical worldview on sexuality and the one-flesh paradigm. [8]

Therefore, let’s not allow ourselves to be swayed by men’s opinions. More importantly, let’s not allow ourselves to betray the One who gave His life for us so that we could be FREED not only from our sins, but from enslavement to the opinions of men that go against God’s heart, teachings, and laws. Joh 8:36  If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. Our “liberty” is not the same liberty the world talks about, which is nothing more than license to sin in every way possible! 

Dear reader, if you or someone you know is in bondage to sin THERE IS HOPE in Jesus Christ who alone can deliver you. All you need do is turn to Him in repentance with Faith, believing that He can set you free from any sin. Ask Him to save you, and He will do it. Rom 10:9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Testimonies of ex-homosexuals and lesbians [12].

So, fellow believer, let’s walk in the LIBERTY given to us by Christ by which we’ve been set free from the world and its opinions to follow “every word of God” whereby we have LIFE! – Mat 4:4 ….It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Rom 6:22  But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.  

May we be BOLD in our witness, and faithfully REPROVE the “works of darkness” until Shiloh (an epithet of the Messiah) comes again! Amen.

Goals of the Transgender Movement; Not What They Seem

Transgender Bathrooms are just the beginning: a scary look into the trans movement’s end goals, Claire Chretien

May 6, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – The battle over men accessing women’s bathrooms and vice versa has little do with bathrooms or even transgenderism, a well-known LGBT activist admitted last week.  It has everything to do with re-working society and getting rid of the “heterobinary structure” in which we live—eliminating distinctions between “male” and “female” altogether.

Riki Wilchins, who has undergone “sex change” surgery and is a far-left social change activist, wrote in the gay publication The Advocate last week that social conservatives and many LGBT activists are missing the point when it comes to the transgender bathroom debate.

The title of Wilchins’ article makes the points succinctly: “We’ll Win the Bathroom Battle When the Binary Burns.”

People should be able to enter whatever bathroom “fits their gender identity,” Wilchins wrote, but the fact that we even have “male” and “female” bathrooms reflects something about society that needs to change.

There are many “genderqueer” or “non-binary” people, Wilchins wrote, pointing to a student who recently “came out” to President Obama as “non-binary” at a London townhall as a notable example.

“Non-binary” people don’t identify as male or female and they often want to be referred to as “they” or “hir” or “zer.”  So the fact that there are even intimate facilities that reflect the “binary” truth about gender should change, Wilchins wrote.

In the eyes of LGBT advocates, the notion of only two genders (which one can pick, of course) is antiquated.

But transgenderism inherently acknowledges and actually reinforces the binary nature of gender.

Transgenderism presumes that a man can be “trapped” inside a woman’s body and a woman can be “trapped” inside a man’s body.  It encourages men “becoming” women to embrace femininity and wear dresses and make-up.  Similarly, transgenderism encourages women “becoming” men to make themselves more masculine through hormones and by altering their appearances, reinforcing the notion that men look and act a certain way.

“The long-term goals of many LGBT activists are actually not just access to the restrooms of their preferred gender identity, but actually destroying the concept of gender or the separation of the genders altogether,” Peter Sprigg, Senior Fellow for Policy Studies at the Family Research Council, told LifeSiteNews.  Sprigg noted that when LGBT activists are appealing to a mainstream audience, they “are accepting or implicitly accepting the separation of male and female facilities” like bathrooms.

“They present this framework…that a transgender person is just born in the wrong body…[they say] the woman born in a man’s body is really a woman and therefore should be allowed to use the women’s room,” said Sprigg.  “But then, if you dig down…you find actually these acknowledgements that they want to do away with the gender binary altogether.”

The challenges faced by “non-binary” people “cut to the heart of arguments that trans advocates and their allies have been making for some time, in the face of furious right-wing opposition to trans identity generally and to ‘boys in the girls’ room’ specifically,” Wilchins wrote.

Wilchins continued:

    But what happens when a genderqueer individual, who genuinely looks and sounds profoundly non-binary or masculine, declares in a binary world s/he would be most comfortable accessing the girls restroom? To say the least, the optics will no longer work. Nor will appeals to practicality.

    What really needs to be contested here is not just our right to use bathrooms with dignity (which would personally be very welcome), but the entire underlying hetero-binary structuring of the world queers must inhabit.

The ultimate goal: an end to society’s ‘binary’ structure

People who advocate for bathroom privacy and transgender advocates who insist boys should be allowed in girls’ bathrooms and vice versa are missing a larger point, Wilchins wrote.  The fact that there are even male and female bathrooms reflects that our society is structured in a “binary” way, and this needs to change in order for the full goals of the LGBT movement to be enacted.

“Queer activists have been talking about [this] at least since the 1970s of Gay Liberation, even as the movement it spawned has continued to nudge it aside,” wrote Wilchins.

As the LGBT movement focused on redefining marriage and enshrining in law same-sex couples’ “right” to children, it also quietly introduced lawsuits advocating for the law to recognize one’s self-perception instead of biological reality as truth.  Once the Supreme Court redefined marriage, the media focus on the LGBT movement slowly began to shift to battles over gender and transgenderism.

“They want to destroy the concepts of male and female entirely,” Rob Dreher at The American Conservative warned.  “This is what they’re after, and they’re not going to stop until it is accomplished.”

Dreher warned that parents need to evaluate how much of the prevailing culture they’re willing to submit their children to, and decide what the tipping point for them will be—the point at which they will remove their children from public schools and in some ways retreat from society.

“It will be very difficult to teach our children to live by Christian sexual morality if we do not teach them how being a Christian requires them (us) to live by a different political and economic code within our society,” wrote Dreher.

A society in which biological sex is no longer recognized “would be a terrifying society for a lot of women and girls,” Sprigg said, because “they would have the experience of being exposed to and being essentially forced to expose themselves to biologically male individuals in settings that were previously separated by sex” like locker rooms.  This could increase the risk of sexual assault and voyeurism, Sprigg said, and also violate people’s sense of privacy.

“Developing a strong and consistent and confident sense of your identity as biologically male or biologically female is an important developmental task for any child in the course of growing up,” said Sprigg.  A society that doesn’t recognize the true nature of gender “would make it exponentially harder for people to accomplish that fundamental human developmental task of understanding who they are.”

‘The family ends up abolished’

“What we are really talking about is the abolition of sex,” Stella Morabito, senior contributor to The Federalist and an expert on cults and propaganda, told LifeSiteNews.  “And it is sex that the trans project is serving to abolish legally, under the guise of something called ‘the gender binary.’  Its endgame is a society in which everyone is legally de-sexed.  No longer legally male or female.  And once you basically redefine humanity as sexless you end up with a de-humanized society in which there can be no legal ‘mother’ or ‘father’ or ‘son’ or ‘daughter’ or ‘husband’ or ‘wife’ without permission from the State.  Government documents are already erasing the terms.  In such a society, the most intimate human relationships take a hit. The family ends up abolished.”

“A sexless society is ultimately a totalitarian society because it erases in law the most basic human relationships,” said Morabito, “particularly the mother-child bond.”

Pro-family advocates have for years warned that the weakening of family bonds leads to a weakened society and greater government involvement in the individual lives of its citizens.

Morabito and Sprigg stressed the importance of speaking out when it comes to these issues and the difference that individuals can make by doing so.

“Ironically, just at the moment when the LGBT movement has achieved their greatest victory in persuading the Supreme Court to redefine marriage, they may be setting themselves up for a tremendous setback by…grossly overreaching” in trying to enact radical gender laws, said Sprigg.

“Sex distinctions are the germ of all human relationships,” said Morabito.  “Abolishing them legally basically abolishes family autonomy.  And this is an act of violence against children because it would serve at some point to separate them from their origins. Every child’s first transcendental question is ‘Where did I come from?’  If the law will not allow the child to see his own origins and wholeness in the faces of a mother and a father, it destabilizes the child’s sense of self.  It creates personal dysfunction in children and basically ends up spreading more dysfunction and even dystopia in society.”

Wilchins praised transgender advocates for their work, noting that they have “finally and perhaps unwittingly opened the gender Pandora’s Box, and over the next few years all sorts of unexpected non-binary things…are about to come popping out.”

Wilchins and the pro-family movement perhaps can agree on one thing, though: “This is going to be interesting.”

Prophecies Of The End Times Comments:

Below is what the bible states regarding Transgenders and the perceived disorder of thinking one is a man when they re a female, and when one is a man and thinks they are a female.

“What does the Bible say about transsexualism / transgenderism?

Is gender identity disorder / gender dysphoria the result of sin?”

Answer: Transsexualism, also known as transgenderism, Gender Identity Disorder (GID), or gender dysphoria, is a desire to change one’s sex or to fulfill the role of the opposite gender. Transsexuals / transgenders usually describe themselves as “trapped” in a body that does not match their gender. They will probably practice transvestism / transvestitism and may also seek hormone therapy and/or surgery to bring their bodies into conformity with their perceived gender.

The Bible has plenty to say about human sexuality. Most basic to our understanding of sex is that God created two (and only two) genders: “male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:27). All the modern-day speculation about numerous genders—or even a gender “continuum” with unlimited genders—is unbiblical.

In Psalm 139, we learn that God fashions each one of us. “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. . . . My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. . . . your eyes saw my unformed body” (verses 13-16). God’s creation of each individual must surely include His designation of gender/sex. His wonderful work leaves no room for mistakes; no one is born with the “wrong body.”

After the fall of man, it did not take long for gender issues to become confused. In Abraham’s day, homosexuality was widespread in some cities (Genesis 19:1-7; Jude 7). The Bible is unmistakably clear that homosexuality is a sinful perversion of God’s gift of sexuality (Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10).

In the Law, transvestism / transvestitism was specifically forbidden: “A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this” (Deuteronomy 22:5).

Another possible reference to transsexualism is 1 Corinthians 6:9, where “male prostitutes” is listed as a separate category from “homosexual offenders.” The King James Version uses the word “effeminate” here; that is to say, the “male prostitutes” might be transsexual men who act as women.

No matter if the gender distortion has a genetic, hormonal, physiological, or psychological cause, the Bible clearly and consistently labels any sexual activity outside of marriage or not between a man and a woman as sin, rebellion against God’s plan. But following this realization is good news: sin can be forgiven and lives can be changed through faith in Christ. The Corinthian believers are an example of such a change: “And [homosexuals] is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:11). There is hope for any sinner, transsexuals, transgenders, those with gender identity disorder, and transvestites included, because of God’s forgiveness available in Jesus Christ.
