God judges and punishes nations who indulge sexual perversions

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.

THE ENDTIMES SODOMITE SPIRIT; PROUD, BOASTFUL, ANTICHRIST, AND ‘GAY’

H1341 ge^ gay’ For H1343; haughty: – proud.

Interesting isn’t it? The Hebrew term for ‘haughty or proud’ is GAY, the very term the homosexuals use to designate their sexual preference and life style! Is this just some strange coincidence?

Most ‘gays’ I’ve met are very ‘haughty’ and BOAST of their sexual perversions whenever possible.

The word “gay” seems to have its origins around the 12th century in England, derived from the Old French word ‘gai’, which in turn was probably derived from a Germanic word, though that isn’t completely known. The word’s original meaning meant something to the effect of “joyful”, “carefree”, “full of mirth”, or “bright and showy”.

However, around the early parts of the 17th century, the word began to be associated with immorality. By the mid 17th century, according to an Oxford dictionary definition at the time, the meaning of the word had changed to mean “addicted to pleasures and dissipations. Often euphemistically: Of loose and immoral life”. This is an extension of one of the original meanings of “carefree”, meaning more or less uninhibited.

Fast-forward to the 19th century and the word gay referred to a woman who was a prostitute and a gay man was someone who slept with a lot of women (ironically enough), often prostitutes. Also at this time, the phrase “gay it” meant to have sex.

With these new definitions, the original meanings of “carefree”, “joyful”, and “bright and showy” were still around; so the word was not exclusively used to refer to prostitutes or a promiscuous man. Those were just accepted definitions, along with the other meanings of the word.

Around the 1920’s and 1930’s, however, the word started to have a new meaning. In terms of the sexual meaning of the word, a “gay man” no longer just meant a man who had sex with a lot of women, but now started to refer to men who had sex with other men. There was also another word “gey cat” at this time which meant a homosexual boy.

By 1955, the word gay now officially acquired the new added definition of meaning homosexual males. [1]

How I arrived here was by looking up the definition of ‘Barabbas’ in Luke 23:18 — the meaning of his name is of Chaldee [2] origin H1347 and Gk (G5 Strong’s). When you go to H1347 in Strong’s Concordance, you also see another term from where ‘geh’ (pronounced ‘gay-eh’) is taken! The Gk ‘gay-eh’ also means; LOFTY, arrogant, and PROUD!

In the Greek, Barabbas is only rendered as “son of Abba” meaning, son of a father or master [3]. Could that master be Satan in his case? Barabbas was a “thief” and a murderer [4] who could metaphorically represent ministers who preach a false gospel. Such are “false shepherds” who hate the Sheep – 2Co 11:13  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. Act 20:29  For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Act 20:30  Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Jud 1:4  For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, Mat 24:24  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Read Luke 23:13-25 for the full account. Scripture defines a ‘false Christ’ or Antichrist, as “a man of lawlessness,” “proud,” “arrogant,” and possibly GAY? There’s a bit of an enigmatic verse in the book of Daniel about his attitude towards women – Daniel 11:37, “Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the DESIRE OF WOMEN, nor…..”

“regard” H995 – understand, attend, consider, perceive, regard, feel, etc.
“desire” H2532 – delight: desire, goodly, pleasant, precious; that which is desirable.

What this seems to be saying is that he won’t have regard for women’s needs and feelings – he won’t be ‘attentive’ to them. Thus, he’ll treat them harshly being insensitive to their needs and desires. He’ll be seriously lacking in ‘understanding’ of their delicate natures. It may be saying that the Antichrist will greatly disrespect women just as the adherents of Islam behave today towards them. Many Islamic women are treated like slaves, denied of basic human rights. The United Nations should be outraged, but doesn’t seem to notice.

According to biblical scholar Stephen Miller in his commentary on Daniel, the phrase has never had consensus in its interpretation even as early as Montgomery in his 2nd century commentary on Daniel. Miller states that the phrase could be interpreted in either of four ways:

“the one desired by women”
“the desire of women”
“that desired by women”
“the desire for women”

If we consult a Hebrew lexicon, the word that is translated “desire” in 11:37 is “hemdah” (transliterated). Of course, as with many words in Hebrew, the interpretation is made difficult because the same Hebrew word can have varied meanings, and often context is the primary determining factor for the translator. In none of its varied meanings, however, does “hemdah” refer to sexual desire. The Expository Dictionary of Bible Words states:

hemdah is a noun found twenty-five times, with the primary sense of “that which is pleasant, or valuable.”

“If it was God’s intent to so hide the beauty of woman, He would have given Eve her “eye covering” burqa on her way out the door. It seems that Islam has found a way to veil what God never intended to cover.

Islam fits the profile. It has no regard for the desires, the precious things, of woman.” [5]

….the grammatical construction disallows changing “desire of women” to “desire for women” (13). In parallel instances, such as Haggai 2:7 and 1 Samuel 9:20, the noun following “desire of” is the source and not the object. What the prophecy is clearly saying is that the Antichrist will disregard something that women desire.

At last we come to the only convincing interpretation. It recognizes that since “the desire of women” appears in a list of deities spurned by the Antichrist, the name must refer to another object of worship that he refuses to honor. To be precise, the name might signify either a god (or gods) that women desire or the desire of women to be gods. Of these two possibilities, the second is a better fit both to the context and to modern reality. It is the desire of women to be gods that the Antichrist will slight.

The context. The angelic messenger has just predicted that the Antichrist will speak marvelous things against the God of gods (verse 36). As we argued, he was alluding to the tragedy in the Garden, where Satan used the same lies to corrupt Eve. He succeeded by exploiting the woman’s desire to be godlike in her knowledge of good and evil. Although the result was downfall of the human race, that desire has never been extinguished. The fire of self-worship still burns in the hearts of all women who refuse to worship the true God.

Yet while recognizing the pride of women, we should not minimize the pride of men. The male heart is also prone to divine aspirations. After all, the future pretender to supreme deity will be a man, not a woman. But the Book of Daniel is concerned not to leave the wrong impression. To avoid suggesting that men are worse than women, the book adds a little reminder that apart from the grace of God, every woman is also an incorrigible egotist with a lurking desire to take over command of the universe.

Modern reality. In recent times, the desire of women to be gods has resurfaced in an especially pronounced form: the drive for so-called women’s liberation. At issue between feminists and Christians is not whether women are equal to men. The Bible says that in Christ “there is neither male nor female” (Gal. 3:28). At issue rather is whether a woman ought to be like a man, whether she should be seeking to exchange a woman’s God-ordained role in the home and church for a man’s role.

Imagine what feminists will think when the Antichrist sets himself up as the supreme god and denies equal billing to any goddess! They will regard the exclusion of women from the highest flights of conceit as discrimination. Whatever hope he offers them of attaining a lesser degree of godhood will hardly satisfy their ambition. Yet he will ignore their objections. That is, as the oracle says, he will not regard the desire of women. [6]

Some have interpreted that scripture as, ‘he will not understand nor have regard for the delight which a woman can give a man from having relations with a woman. A homosexual would have no desire for a woman, nor take pleasure in having sexual relations with a woman. Still others say Daniel 11:31, has nothing at all to do with the sexual preference of the Antichrist. Another opinion is that the phrase, “desire of women” is speaking of Jesus Christ since all women wanted to be His mother, the vessel through which Christ would be born into the world, but where this fanciful interpretation came from I can’t tell, since I’ve not found one scriptural reference that supports it.

The traditional interpretation is that he will not be married, or be a homosexual. Even if we were to understand its application in this manner there are other alternatives to consider. For example: He will have no regard for women, practically speaking can mean to allow abortion. This certainly makes one have no regard for woman. He will disrespect the most basic function of woman, not caring for the unborn or the scars he will leave on young women. To not regard woman may mean he is against her role in marriage and childbearing (promoting abortion) denying the function God gave to women. He will divide the family unit and the woman’s role in it, reverse the roles of men and woman. Thus, No regard for women does not necessarily mean he must be homosexual or unmarried. He may promote same sex partnership other than traditional marriage. Many have pointed out that in the religion of Islam men have no regard for women, which will be of no consequence since it also says, “he will show no regard for the gods of his fathers.” So even if he is a Muslim he will not have the respect of the religion he was brought up in. [7]

When you put the Greek definition along with its Chaldee origin, you have the incarnated son of Satan – a proud, arrogant, boastful man speaking vain words against the true God; defiant of all laws and gods. He may not be specifically homosexual, but may lead a sexually immoral life style or promote it in general.

The Greek ‘diastrepho’ From G1223 and G4762; means to distort, that is, (figuratively) misinterpret, or (morally) corrupt: – perverse (-rt), turn away. G4762 means ‘to twist, turn around, or reverse.’ This is interesting since the general plan of Satan for the World is to twist, reverse, pervert, and turn up-side-down, God’s ORDER of all created things. Men become as women and vice versa is one example where God’s natural ORDER of things is being REVERSED or perverted!

A phrase often applied to the Antichrist, “son of perdition,” is a curious one. The term, “son of perdition” isn’t limited to a MALE person! Look at the following Scriptures and definitions —

G5207 uihos; Apparently a primary word; a “son” (sometimes of animals), used very widely of immediate, remote or figurative kinship: – child, foal, son.

Just as the phrase, “sons of God” [8] is not gender specific but used to refer to all who’ve been Born Again of God’s Spirit and thus are children, or “sons of God.”

“sons” G5043 teknon; means offspring, children, child, male child, or daughter. See both Strong’s and Thayer’s Definitions.

Perdition means utter destruction, perishing, ruin, and eternal misery in hell.

Whether or not the final Antichrist will be homosexual, what we know for certain is that God will eventually pour out His wrath upon any nation which indulges in sexual perversions, as He has done throughout history – Genesis 19:1-28.

In Leviticus 18, God identifies incest, homosexuality and bestiality as the sins which cause the land to “vomit out its inhabitants” (v25). Even in this dark context homosexuality is singled out for special condemnation as “an abomination” (v.22).

In what is probably the most challenging Biblical passage of all, Deuteronomy 20:16-18, God tells the Hebrew people to completely wipe out the Canaanite inhabitants of the Holy Land. His explanation why is detailed in Leviticus 18:24-30.

“‘Do not defile yourselves by any of these things; for by all these the nations which I am casting out before you have become defiled. ‘For the land has become defiled, therefore I have brought its punishment upon it, so the land has spewed out its inhabitants. ‘But as for you, you are to keep My statutes and My judgments and shall not do any of these abominations, neither the native, nor the alien who sojourns among you (for the men of the land who have been before you have done all these abominations, and the land has become defiled); so that the land will not spew you out, should you defile it, as it has spewed out the nation which has been before you. ‘For whoever does any of these abominations, those persons who do so shall be cut off from among their people. ‘Thus you are to keep My charge, that you do not practice any of the abominable customs which have been practiced before you, so as not to defile yourselves with them; I am the LORD your God.’”

It is certainly not within our right to judge God. We can only rest in the assurance that, by definition, whatever God does is justified. Importantly, however, his use of genocide to punish sexual perversion is instructive as to His perspective of the relative gravity of human sins, as is His admonition not to tolerate these forms of sexual conduct by any persons in the society, even “the sojourner among you.”

Of course, this does not condone hatred or violence against homosexuals. [9]

God brought about the fall of the Roman and Greek empires; both known for their sexual excesses and perversions. “The Greek “gymnasium,” where young men engaged in sporting events in the nude, was a center of homosexuality and one of the reasons sodomy became known throughout the entire western world as “Greek love.” In his article, Homosexuality & the Maccabean Revolt, Catholic scholar Patrick G.D. Riley notes:

“The all-male athletic club known as the gymnasium was notorious in the ancient world as a nestingplace for pederasty. Socrates himself was susceptible to it, as we learn in the Charmides. The lovers of boys came to the gymnasium in crowds, as Plato notes in that dialogue and in the Euthydemus. Plutarch mentions it in the Erotikos. Hence the gymnasium, with its sexual seductions, was bound to arouse alarm when it arrived in Jerusalem and “attracted the noblest young men” of Israel (2 Macc. 4:12). What follows that phrase bears this out. The original Greek of the text of 2 Maccabees continues with a pun: hypotasson hypo petason, which literally means “subduing [these noble young Jews] under the petason,” the broad-brimmed hat of Hermes worn by naked Greek athletes. But in the Church’s traditional Latin translation, known as the Vulgate, St. Jerome renders this in lupanaribus ponere, that is, ‘to put in brothels’

…Joined themselves to the Gentiles. In the Greek, this has a strong connotation of sexual union. The verb, zeugizein, means “to yoke in pairs,” a graphic metaphor for sexual union. It is used in a love-passage from second-century B.C. Alexandria, hence contemporary with the Maccabees, in a context implying copulation. Since the Greek gymnasium was traditionally exclusive to males, and since the histories present the Jerusalem gymnasium as male-only, the sexual union can only be homosexual. (New Oxford Review, September 1997). [10]

America is currently passing all kinds of legislation which oppresses religious institutions by forcing them to act against their beliefs. Will she not be judged for this and for her immorality as have other nations before her? When the state makes it a crime to worship according to one’s faith, isn’t that the quintessence of religious oppression? The Secularists are forever trumpeting the “Separation of Church and State” clause while hypocritically making LAWS and REGULATIONS regarding religious institutions! The original intent of that clause, penned by our nation’s forefathers, was to keep the state OUT OF RELIGIOUS AFFAIRS and from MAKING LAWS which oppress religious freedoms; ie., to worship as they please without government interference! For the history of how the ‘Separation of Church and State’ clause came to be, see [11].

According to God’s Word, the Bible, Christians are not to agree with or promote the “works of darkness” (which would include sexual sins) but rather “expose them” – Eph 5:11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. [12]

This goes especially for all the ‘affirmative churches’ who not only welcome but endorse the ‘gay’ life style as normative, who assure gays that they’re OK the way they are (they don’t need to repent) for God won’t judge their sin, and who ordain gay and lesbian ministers. While we should not hate gays/lesbians, nor engage in violence against them, we don’t have to endorse their life styles. Deu 23:17 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel. Deu 23:18 Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both these are abomination unto the LORD thy God. sodomite” H6945 qâdêsh; BDB Definition 1) male temple prostitute

Yeshua is soon to return, wouldn’t it be wise to be ready and be sure you’re not on the wrong side of the issues?

[2] Chaldee Language —

Employed by the sacred writers in certain portions of the Old Testament, viz., Dan_2:4-7, Dan_2:28; Ezra 4:8-6:18; Ezr_7:12-26; Gen_31:46; Jer_10:11. It is the Aramaic dialect, as it is sometimes called, as distinguished from the Hebrew dialect. It was the language of commerce and of social intercourse in Western Asia, and after the Exile gradually came to be the popular language of Palestine. It is called “Syrian” in 2Ki_18:26. Some isolated words in this language are preserved in the New Testament (Mat_5:22; Mat_6:24; Mat_16:17; Mat_27:46; Mar_3:17; Mar_5:41; Mar_7:34; Mar_14:36; Act_1:19; 1Co_16:22). These are specimens of the vernacular language of Palestine at that period. The term “Hebrew” was also sometimes applied to the Chaldee because it had become the language of the Hebrews (Joh_5:2; Joh_19:20).
