Seeing but not perceiving

Dear Editor,

As the media announced the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision validating homosexual marriage, many people expressed great joy with the decision. That court decision is now the law of the land. Throughout the United States, federal and states will pass pro-homosexual laws, some in the near future. The homosexual cause will expand.

The traditional marriage between one man and one woman has always been accepted as a union created by the God of Judaism and the Christian Church. However, Jesus Christ prophesied directly about marriage that would be a great sign of the end of the age.

The books of Matthew 24:37 and Luke 17:26 record the prophecy of Jesus. “As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of man. They ate, they drank, they married, and were given in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark.” We must remember that the behavior of Noah’s generation had degenerated to the point of God’s destruction.

The expression of “marrying and giving in marriage” has taken on a prophetic fulfillment with the U.S. Court’s mandate of marrying male with male and female with female that must be allowed under penalty of law. Those laws that prohibited the marriage of male with male and female with female became illegal administration under the guidelines of the court. In the absence of any other replacement to our traditional marriage other than this Supreme Court decision, the “Marrying” prophecy must be applied to homosexual marriage.

“Giving in marriage.” A man and woman could become married using one of two authorities. One authority is a court magistrate; the other authority is the Church. Neither authority exercised marriage under threat of law. After the marriage ceremony, the church minister or magistrate would “give” the marriage notification to state government. State government basically served as a record keeper. By authority of the U.S. Supreme Court decision, the federal courts will be the monitor or “Giver” of authority for the bonding of homosexual marriage, and records keeper.

The prophecy of “marriage and giving in marriage” has not been activated. However, the homosexual cause will not cease. Government, both federal and state, will enact laws favorable to homosexual expansion. This behavior will become “politically correct.” As the stratum of our political stations, media and academe abandons Christian belief, the void will be filled with legal codes and statutes that will encourage sensual desires and conduct.
