Same-Sex Marriage: Blasphemy
9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
Nothing is more diabolical to human life than Same-Sex Marriage. It is the ultimate lie of Satan to blaspheme God and His creation. When studying the Bible there is no evidence found that this level of blasphemy has ever occurred before. We have always seen in Scripture that Satan would introduce the worst possible darkness during his last rage against God. That’s exactly where we are right now. The devil is spewing out his final darkness and trying to engulf the world. Much of the church world is now accepting his filth.
The plan of the devil, as we await the Rapture, is to blaspheme everything that is pure and holy. The Bible calls this action “wickedness.” Satan is determined to blaspheme “the Marriage Supper of Jesus Christ and His Bride.” John saw the Devil give great power to the Anti-Christ to blaspheme God the Father, the Bride that is preparing to celebrate, and the tabernacle where the wedding feast will be occurring.“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.” (Revelation 13:5-6) That company in heaven are the Raptured saints, the Bride of Christ.
Nothing makes the promises of God more beautiful than Satan’s drive to defile and debauch them. Everything in God’s world, and especially His plans for the Biblical future, has been attacked by the devil. That’s what the devil is, an imitator and substitute showman that belittles the breathtaking future of the Kingdom of God. Satan’s drive to portray himself as God has never produced one thing but proof that he is a “god,” the idiot god, clearly headed for defeat. Same sex immorality, and especially same-sex marriage, is Satan’s darkest imitation. Lucifer has always reserved his grandest schemes to try to defile God’s greatest glory.
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is the pinnacle of the church’s future. The saints of God that have paid the ultimate price in sacrifice and abandonment to Christ’s kingdom are soon to shine like jewels in His eternal crown. Joseph A. Seiss, a Lutheran pastor of a century ago, said, “The harlot (must be) swept away” and then “the faithful woman comes to her rightful honors.” (The Apocalypse, Joseph A. Seiss, p. 425.) He further stated, “The Betrothed, so long waiting amid privation, persecution, and contempt, now becomes a Bride.” (Ibid.) Same-sex marriage represents the immorality and fallen character of the harlot woman, and she is soon to be swept away so that the true Bride can be ushered into her glory.
The marriage of a man and a woman is a type and figure of the Marriage of the Lamb and His Bride. We must understand that same-sex marriage is an attack on this earthly sacrament also. Those who claim the right of calling the immoral union of two men or two women a marriage blaspheme every husband and wife. Same-sex marriage is not just a sin; it is an abomination preserved for the ultimate judgment of God. By the Holy Ghost, Apostle Paul said, “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers (male prostitutes, especially homosexual prostitutes) and adulterers God will judge.” (Hebrews 13:4) No experience of human flesh is more sacred than marriage. The first institution that God established to satisfy the deep longing of man was his union with woman. God intended that we fill His world with a multitude to love and serve Him.
4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
Satan is on a rampage to defile the family of humankind and the future family of the redeemed. There is no fear that he will succeed, but he will turn this world into a wilderness one more time. The process of his debauchery has begun and this will be his final fling. Before we deal with the glory of the future Marriage of the Lamb, we must view the worldwide homosexual brothel that Satan is planning. I do not believe that there is any question but that the Antichrist will be a homosexual. The world is literally hell-bent on making the sodomite lifestyle the order of the day. Anyone that refuses to call this lifestyle okay is attacked with ferocity. Sodomites are thrilled to destroy any institution that stands in their way. Their motives and methods cannot be called anything but demonic. It will become a crime to open your mouth to disagree with them.
Making this statement has never been acceptable with most prophecy teachers. That is about to change. The worldwide drive to decriminalize this destructive conduct has passed the point of no return. The battle now is to legalize same-sex marriage and to raise the sodomite community to represent the dominant characteristics of mankind. This will be the Antichrist culture for the coming seven years. Those that oppose this development will be hated until the Rapture and those that miss the Rapture will be hunted and destroyed after the Rapture. I believe that the Antichrist will seek to cleanse the earth of heterosexual conduct after he gains worldwide control. The Biblical family will be outlawed for seven dark years.
Daniel prophesied of the Antichrist’s character. By the Holy Ghost he spoke, “And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.” (Daniel 11:36-39)
The wording of the passage leaves no doubt that this “god” promoted by the Antichrist will be totally unprecedented. All heathenism and heathen temples have exalted sodomy and sodomite prostitutes as part of their rituals. This evil Antichrist and his strange god (Lucifer) will speak marvelous (high, strange, and hidden) things. He will exalt sin and immorality to a new level and swiftly cause the entire earth to become a moral wilderness.
The churches, temples, mosques, and synagogues of the world will all become sodomite institutions ruled by prostitutes of this new faith. We have already learned that at least half of the Catholic priests of this worldwide religion are homosexuals. Catholic bishops have basically made using children as sex toys acceptable within their ranks. Now, the Episcopalians have made the transition to electing an openly gay bishop. For a long time, they have allowed sodomites to serve as priests and become members of their churches. Other denominations are quickly following this same pattern. Bible-believing churches are daily becoming more impossible to find. It will get worse as we await our Lord’s return.
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
The harlot woman of Revelation Seventeen is the Biblical picture of the New World Religion. She is a “great whore” and rules the religious world of the Antichrist kingdom. She makes the world drunk, intoxicated on her filth. The Antichrist makes this new religion wealthy and demands that she and all her priests promote total abominations against all Biblical truth and standards. This new religion will be responsible for the Mark of the Beast and will offer that mark only to those that fit their culture. The rest will be swiftly eliminated. Tens of millions will die at their hand.
I’m concerned about what is going to happen after the Rapture, but I’m more concerned about what will happen before the Rapture. The spirit of deception is so overwhelming that most people have no idea what is happening. Many otherwise decent people cannot comprehend the onslaught of the evil landslide we are experiencing. Already people are saying, “I don’t mind sodomites being members of the church serving as elders, etc., but I cannot accept them as bishops or in high offices.” That’s total foolishness. The church world is full of members that live together outside of marriage. If Jesus tarries, we are on the verge of being a worldwide Sodom and Gomorrah. The saints are going to soon be like Lot of whom it was said, “For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds.” (II Peter 2:8) Daniel described this coming hour perfectly.“Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.” (Daniel 12:10)
This glorious day of triumph is about to experience a revival of interest. As good men and women watch the world go to hell right here on earth, the beauty of our Biblical hope will become Heavenly beyond measure. The devil always overplays his hand. Human marriage, when compared to the dark deeds of two men or two women, is beautiful beyond description. Purity is most beautiful when you see it side by side with sodomy.
11 Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the Lord your God.
12 Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you:
13 Know for a certainty that the Lord your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the Lord your God hath given you.
Raise your thoughts to the next level of marriage where the Lamb of God will take His eternal Bride and enter into the Eternal City of New Jerusalem. The union of the Lord Jesus Christ and His church is the ultimate hope of the redeemed. Satan hates this future event and seeks to imitate it with his harlot bride and her sodomite children. It can only make our hope more beautiful as the world witnesses the whoredom and the arrogance against all that is “holy.”
The Psalmist David caught a peep into this triumph and wrote what his spirit had received. He saw the throne, where the Father sat, he saw the Lamb of God triumphant and descending out of the Ivory Palaces to get His Bride, and he saw the Bride dressed in the glamour of His righteousness. He wrote by the Holy Spirit, “Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.” “The king’s daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold. She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee. With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king’s palace.” (Psalm 45:6-8; 45:13-15) This glorious message was almost too much for King David, but he said, “My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.” (Psalm 45:1) He had already said in an earlier psalm, “Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” (Psalm 16:9-11)
This prophet of God had seen the Marriage Supper and said that his future death was nothing but “rest in hope.” Surely, we that are living on the edge of the Marriage Supper should be elated with “joyous expectation,” even more than David. Soon, we will be shouting the Lord’s praises while our enemy, Satan, blasphemes at us from the earth where he has been banished, soon to be cast in the bottomless pit.
