If you are gay or lesbian, and are reading this series, I truly hope that you are not so hardened of heart, and so deceived by your sin, that God has to deal as severely with you, as He did with the Apostle Paul. I hope that you are not kicking so hard against the pricks, that is, resisting the Spirit of God in your life, that He is forced to take some drastic measure in order to bring you to your senses; but if He does, then please consider it a Divine Token of His Love and Mercy; for as it is also written:
"For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth."
Hebrews 12:6, KJV
"Open rebuke is better than secret love."
Proverbs 27:5, KJV
Before leaving this lesson behind, allow me to also mention the fact that in the previous verse from Hebrews, Paul began by saying "But exhort one another daily". In other words, one way to avoid falling into sin, and becoming hardened against the Lord's Spirit working in our lives, is to keep each other in check. In other words, we need to constantly encourage and inspire each other through the truth of the Scriptures. We need to not only support each other with our prayers, but we also need to help strengthen each other, and keep each other on guard against sin, by constantly quoting the Scriptures. This thought goes right along with the following verses:
"Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."
Proverbs 27:17, KJV
"Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken."
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, KJV
"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much . . . Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins."
James 5:16, 19-20, KJV
Let us return now to the dead animal story, and my daughter. After sharing this story with my daughter, I told her that it was not simply an accident that one short scene in the movie depicted two boys kissing each other on the mouth. I told her that it was intentionally placed there for a very specific reason. Actors were purposely hired for the part, and perhaps even paid to do the scene. It was not just an afterthought. I am sure that careful attention was given to every detail of the video. I then explained to her that the intention was to implant a subconscious thought in her mind, via a movie about prejudice between Blacks and Whites, that to view homosexual relationships as abnormal, is not only wrong, but it is also a form of prejudice.
In other words, the intention of the video's creators was to attach a lie -- gay relationships are normal -- to something which is totally unrelated -- Blacks and Whites shouldn't be prejudiced against each other -- which most people perceive as truth. This tactic is so typical of Satan. He will mix a little bit of truth with his pack of lies in order to trick and deceive people. But let us remember what Jesus and the Prophet Isaiah said:
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
Isaiah 5:20, KJV
". . . He [the Devil] was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."
John 8:44, KJV
I told my daughter that I have no doubt that irresponsible school officials will continue to show these kinds of videos in the classroom, which contain these quick, short scenes, which slowly but surely indoctrinate children, and subtly persuade them that the gay and lesbian lifestyle is normal, acceptable, and can even be enjoyable. Even though these relationships clearly defy God's Natural Order, similar to the animal carcase on the road which nauseates us, children will be taught to ignore the natural repulsion given to them by God, and will eventually tolerate, if not embrace, these aberrant lifestyles. Their sense of right and wrong will be warped. They will become numb to the Voice of God's Spirit speaking the truth to their hearts. Sin will no longer be a sin in their eyes; and we, their parents, will simply be branded as old-fashioned, narrow-minded fogies full of hate.
How much this has come to pass in the eight years since I first wrote this series! As we saw earlier, gay and lesbian militants have made great strides towards convincing people to accept, or at the very least, to tolerate, their sinful lifestyle; and this fact is particularly evident amongst the younger generation. Even at the private Christian school that my daughter attended, there were a few students who claimed to be gay or lesbian much to the chagrin of the schoolmaster.
I also explained to my daughter, that as she continued going through school, sooner or later, she would encounter gay and lesbian people; and she would have to decide how she wanted to react to them. I told her that eventually, she would have to make her own decisions regarding her faith. In a word, she could either compromise and hide her light under a bushel, or else she could stand up for what she believes in; even if it means being ostracized, and suffering mockery and ridicule, and losing friends, or maybe even being reprimanded by school authorities. Thankfully, as I mentioned in the last part of this series, the Lord worked out our situation so that she was able to attend a private Christian school during her last six years of school life.
But general speaking, if there is one thing which has become clear to me personally over the years, it is that we will each have to pay a greater and greater price for our faith, as the world continues to slide into spiritual darkness, and the gulf grows ever wider between the Children of Light, and the Children of Darkness. This is an inevitable truth; for as Jesus said:
"And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved."
Matthew 10:22, KJV
If you are a God-fearing, Bible-believing Christian, then I hope that after reading the information which I have provided in this series, that you are truly convinced that all of the social and legal victories which have been won by the gay and lesbian community, are most certainly not of God, but rather, are inspired by none other than Satan himself; the Father of Lies; who has declared a war of spiritual anarchy against the Natural Order established by the Lord in the Garden of Eden. It should be clear to you by now, that the primary purpose of these new laws, court rulings, and new social attitudes, is to totally overturn God's Standards, as they are contained in the Bible, and to replace them with a less-demanding, human standard, in which sin and guilt are viewed as outdated ideas from the past, and in which sin is no longer considered a sin.
It is encouraging to know, that despite the heavy onslaught by these gay and lesbian militants, many American states have continued to stand firm in their objections to marriages of two people of the same sex. As of this current time -- April, 2009 -- thirty US states still have constitutional amendments on their books which explicitly prohibit the recognition of same-sex "marriages". Furthermore, more than forty US states explicitly restrict marriage to heterosexual unions; that is, between two persons of the opposite sex. Finally, nineteen US states ban any legal recognition of same-sex unions that would be equivalent to civil marriage. Let's hope and pray that the people and law makers in these states will continue to remain strong in their convictions. Let's also hope that with these recent victories in Iowa and Vermont, God's people will rise up and prevent the rest of New England from adopting same-sex "marriage" laws.
A moment ago, I mentioned that Satan, the Father of Lies, has declared a war of spiritual anarchy against the Natural Order established by the Lord Himself in the Book of Genesis. If you think that this idea of an anarchist's world sounds a bit preposterous, may I suggest that you consider how the Apostle Paul describes the soon-coming false Jewish messiah, Moshiach ben David, in the second chapter of his second Epistle to the Thessalonians. While some Bibles, such as the KJV, interpret "anthropos hamartia" as "man of sin", meaning of course that this person will rebel against and violate the Laws of God, other Bibles interpret it using such terminology as "man of rebellion", and "the lawless one". Here is the KJV version:
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;"
2 Thessalonians 2:3, KJV
No matter how we choose to interpret the phrase, the general idea being proposed by Paul, is that this man, this false messiah who will actually claim to be God, will live outside of the Law of the true God of Heaven; he will be a spiritual anarchist who opposes God's Natural Order; and it is only natural to assume that his followers will do likewise as well.
As a final proof of everything I have stated in this series, allow me to present you with one more piece of convincing evidence, which points to the fact that there is currently a concerted effort to overturn the Natural Order established by God Himself. As we all know, at this current time, one's legal gender is determined by his or her physical attributes at birth. If a baby is born with female reproductive organs, she is obviously female; and if a child is born with male reproductive organs, then he is obviously male. But what if this is legally redefined so that one's gender is no longer determined solely by one's physical attributes, but also by one's mental and emotional state, or even by one's physical attributes after undergoing a sex-change operation? If you doubt that this is really possible, please consider the following excerpts which I extracted from a news article which was published eight years ago by "Christian News at Worthy News":
----- Begin Quote -----
Same-sex partnerships have been debated since the great community barbecue at Sodom and Gomorrah, and the trend will undoubtedly continue. But a related issue of monstrous proportions is on the horizon: Impending legislative changes regarding gender definition as a result of sex-change operations, and a scarier subject, transgenics, both of which challenge the orthodox rendering of the divine order, are inevitable.
Up until now, a man who submitted to sex-reassignment remained legally defined as a man regardless of how he mutilated himself. That's because the law was based on existing limitations regarding reproduction; a person who went through a sex-change operation did not acquire the necessary internal organs for procreation during the procedure and therefore continued to be defined by his gender at birth.
But such concepts are changing. The catch phrase has gone from "sex reassignment surgery" to "gender reassignment surgery." The language is intentional. The goal is to change state and federal definitions of male and female to existing physical characteristics, rather than gender at the time of birth. To make matters worse, cloning and alternative conception and gestation methods have been developed to satisfy the legal requirements of genetic reproduction by gender-altered couples.
----- End Of Quote -----
Alarming, isn't it? Imagine; the day may soon be upon us when, from a legal perspective, men are really women, and women are really men, and men may be able to physically bear their own children; after they've been turned into women of course! Now, if all of that sounds confusing to you, just remember; God is not the author of confusion; Satan is; and he, (meaning Satan), must be gloating with absolute delight over the sexual identity crisis which has sadly gripped the world. One thing is for certain; regardless of how much man tries to implement and force his imperfect, corrupt laws upon us, God's Word stands forever; because it is Absolute Law, and nothing will ever change that. Please consider the following verses:
"For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven."
Psalms 119:89, KJV
"Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever."
Psalms 119:160, KJV
"The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever."
Isaiah 40:8, KJV
"For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed."
Malachi 3:6, KJV
"Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever."
Hebrews 13:8, KJV
With these verses, which clearly reveal the immutability of God's Word, I am going to bring another series to a close. I trust that you have found it informative, and I pray that it has been an inspiration and a blessing in your life. If you happen to be a practicing gay or lesbian, I truly hope that you will seriously ponder the path which you have taken in your life. May God have His Will and Way in your life.
