Jesus explains why gays and the world hate Him:
“The world cannot hate you, but it hates me, because I am testifying about it that its deeds are evil.” —Jesus
There is no accommodation on the gay issue with the world. But, sadly, that will not stop many deluded “believers” (and “Christian” leaders!) to go down the slippery road of supporting gay marriage.
They will compromise because they do not want to be ostracized from society, or they don’t want to be seen as uncool, mean, or “unloving.” The excuses will be innumerable. Another reason “believers” (and many young “believers”) are beginning to support gay marriage is because they value personal peace and affluence over truth.
There is no fear of God in this nation, and it is sad to begin to see many so-called believers not fear God.
Nevertheless, God is still holy and he will have everyone give an account to him on judgment day.
I am already seeing a tsunami of so-called believers go down that road, which inevitably ends in apostasy.
The remnant of God will remain uncompromisingly faithful to their Lord—they will not abandon God and his all-wise design for marriage.
Folks, gird up your faith, the persecution is coming…quickly.
Think about it: if this can cause faithless “believers” to capitulate to the world—how much more will it when the actual persecution comes!
My New Oxford American Dictionary defines “Gestapo” as such:
“The German secret police under Nazi rule. It ruthlessly suppressed opposition to the Nazis in Germany and occupied Europe and sent Jews and others to concentration camps. From 1936 it was headed by Heinrich Himmler”
I want to highlight, “It ruthlessly suppressed opposition.” That is exactly what this “gestapo” is doing. They want to silence anyone who thinks and behaves differently from them. It is not just bigoted homosexuals that make up this gestapo; it is the whole-complex of the bigoted media, educational institutions, and the left in the government.
There are eerie parallels between the growing hatred and persecution of Jews in the 1930s in Germany and the criminalization of Christianity in America today.
Here are the stages: Disagree with Christians -> Ridicule Christians -> Ostracize Christians -> Persecute Christians -> Eliminate Christians.
In just the last few years, we have entered stage 3. Stage 4 and 5 are coming very soon.
A few years ago I could not gauge this, but I can now see within two years that a Bible-Believing church will not be allowed to meet publicly for worship. Given this, churches may want to begin posturing for home churches and, of course, preparing for persecution.
Difficult times are coming for God’s people.
“If the world hates you, be aware that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own. However, because you do not belong to the world, but I chose you out of the world, for this reason the world hates you.” (John 15:18-19)
