I mentioned on another blog, that everytime homosexuality is discussed in its biblical context as sinful, someone invariably attempts to dumb it down and pretend as if it is nothing to be worried about.
We should be worried about the war in Iraq, world hunger, the eco system and homelessness they say. These are the important issues they say, not who people are “sleeping” with.
But is that true?
A new article released by Janet Folger, president of Faith2Action says what a lot of people who are aware of the times have been thinking. In her article “How same-sex marriage points to the end of the world”, Folger recounts how what we are seeing happen now before our very eyes is the beginning fulfillment of what Jesus said would happen before his return. Moreover, the people had sunken into such a perpetually degenerative moral condition these things were celebrated and viewed as normal.
As I wrote about in my book, “The Criminalization of Christianity,” Jeffrey Satinover, who holds an M.D. from Princeton and doctorates from Yale, MIT and Harvard, was on my radio program one day and I asked him about where we are in history. He explained that according to the “Babylonian Talmud” – the book of rabbis’ interpretation of the scriptures 1,000 years before Christ, there was only one time in history that reflects where we are right now. There was only one time in history, according to these writings, where men were given in marriage to men, and women given in marriage to women.
Want to venture a guess as to when? No, it wasn’t in Sodom and Gomorrah, although that was my guess. Homosexuality was rampant there, of course, but according to the Talmud, not homosexual “marriage.” What about ancient Greece? Rome? No. Babylon? No again. The one time in history when homosexual “marriage” was practiced was … during the days of Noah. And according to Satinover, that’s what the “Babylonian Talmud” attributes as the final straw that led to the Flood.
Folger’s article also contains astonishing commentary by Rabbi Aryeh Spero on what the Talmud reveals about homosexuality, state sanctioned homosexual weddings and the coming judgment of God.
25But first must He [Christ] suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 26And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of Man:
27They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30“Even thus shall it be in the Day when the Son of Man is revealed.
Notice that Jesus compared Noah’s day to Sodom and Gomorrah and then linked it to the time of his return.
Because the inhabitants of the earth had become so evil, God anointed Noah to preach righteousness and repentance right up until the time the door of the ark closed shut. He preached the same message for over 100 years. This was the mercy of God in action, a window of opportunity to repent. Some listened at first, but then overcome by the sin around them, eventually ignored Noah. Noah was openly vilified, mocked and called a liar. Why? Because the people saw no rain and they did not want to believe their activities were wrong.
Even today, blogs and ministries dedicated to calling the church to repentance and exposing the unfruitful works of darkness are being mocked, vilified and dismissed as “divisive”, “hateful” and “homophobic” by many in the church and others in the world.
This is why we must urgently return to preaching the message of the Kingdom of God! Repent and believe the gospel for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Mark 1:14,15. While others saturate the church with false messages of love, prosperity and blessings, true saints should cry aloud and spare not. The time has come to speak out to this wicked generation of men without fear.
Laugh, mock and continue marrying and giving in marriage if you please. At the appointed time, the Lord will return and the door to repentance will be shut forever. Once the door shuts, the rain will fall. So it was and so it shall be.
