Are you ready? Are you prayed up? Have you determined and set your mind that no matter what law they pass you will stand with God’s eternal Word? Have you decided that you will not be silent no matter what the penalty? Have you educated your church on what is upon us? Are you ready?
Because its not coming, its here.
With the passage of a law in Colorado, a formal declaration by the Brazilian government and a punitive legal decision by the Canadian government against a pastor, homosexuals have begun the work of shutting down the last solid opposition to their lifestyle. That would be you, the church.
With the assistance of the gay christian movement weakening the church’s inner defenses and the current spiritual climate of greed (aka prosperity) and excess in the church, the gay political movement has racheted up the external pressure to stop all voices which proclaim homosexuality as anything but good, moral and superior. That’s publicly. Your alternative is to either not say anything or say it in secret.
Are you ready to do what Daniel did when he was threatened by the Babylonian legal system? Are you prepared to do what John, Peter and the other disciples did when the religious magistrates beat them and ordered them not to speak of Jesus anymore? Are you ready?
The [Colorado] law provides an exemption allowing religious groups to continue teaching, inside their doors, the Bible’s condemnation of homosexuality. But the exemption itself is ultimately harmful to the church, Hausknecht contends.
“It tends to marginalize the church,” he said. “They’ll say, ‘It’s just a church.’ It will allow gay activists to continue to marginalize Christians. They’ll say, ‘Keep it within your four walls. That’s all.'”
The church is about to be ghettoized, just like the Jews of Warsaw under Hitler. The enemy’s intent is to herd us into our churches, padlock the doors and make it illegal for us to speak what thus said the Lord. Are you prepared to lose your job, be forced from your home, have your children taken from you for refusing to bow at the altar of homosexual acceptance? There is no middle ground. They won’t allow it. Either we choose now to stand up and be counted with the prophets who when faced with the devil’s schemes stood tall or we fade in an ignoble oblivion.
In Brazil the government announced a plan to cleanse Brazil of all “homophobia.” Last Days Watchman blogger Julio Severo has witnessed this sharp, government led attack in recent years. It culminated at the conference attended by delegates from 14 foreign nations.
Accompanied by six ministers, President Lula asked for all the prejudiced people to “open their minds and clean them”. He astonished everyone by manifesting complete support for the homosexual movement and by saying “that he is going to do the possible so that the criminalization of homophobia and the civil union may be approved”.
[Lula] defended the end for all opposition to the homosexual behavior and he affirmed that sexual discrimination “perhaps is the most perverse disease impregnated in the human head”.
Make no mistake the American political homosexual movement is involved with this having exported their hatred of critics of their sinful abomination to countries where governments are seduced by their money. Are you ready to have your church monitored by undercover homosexual activists? Are you prepared to have homosexuals target your business to test your acceptance of their sin? What will you do when they file an expensive lawsuit against you? In case you havent heard, the war is on.
To our north, the Canadian government has spoken emphatically that critics of homosexuality will face the law and be punished. On May 30th, Pastor Stephen Boissoin was banned from expressing his biblical perspective of homosexuality and ordered to pay $5,000 for “damages for pain and suffering” as well as apologize to the activist who complained of being hurt. Said the court:
“Mr. Boissoin and The Concerned Christian Coalition Inc. shall cease publishing in newspapers, by e-mail, on the radio, in public speeches, or on the Internet, in future, disparaging remarks about gays and homosexuals. Further, they shall not and are prohibited from making disparaging remarks in the future about … Lund or … Lund’s witnesses relating to their involvement in this complaint. Further, all disparaging remarks versus homosexuals are directed to be removed from current Web sites and publications of Mr. Boissoin and The Concerned Christian Coalition Inc…”
This is not a fight to be won with carnal weapons. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Get yours out and get it ready.
