Someone commented on a Facebook post related to the rainbow flag: “People offended by Gay Rights deserve to be offended, they are the kinds of Pharisees Jesus spoke against.”
Here was my reply:
What you fail to understand is that this is NOT about the right to marry for tax purposes and other civil matters related to marriage. Some think it is about this, but it is not. If they were happy with just a civil union for tax and legal purposes, while I would still call it sin I would not be so strongly against it. They will not settle for that. They want marriage for their agenda.
This is merely a stepping stone in the gay agenda. The next step is to force churches to marry gays even when it is against our beliefs. Just saw a news article. The ink has hardly dried on the paper of the ruling, and some gays have already filed suit. And in states that already had gay marriage, there have been several such suits.
In conjunction with that, they will seek to muzzle Bible-believing Christians so that we cannot preach or teach against homosexuality. Some countries that are further along in the gay agenda have already put such laws on the books.
It is about infiltrating the church by force, those who would not be infiltrated by stealth such as those that now approve of homosexuality.
This is pictured in the story of Lot. Jesus said it will be like the days of Lot when He returns. What happened is that some angels came to Sodom to visit Lot. The town folk saw these handsome guys (as they thought them to be), and went over to Lot’s to try to get them to join with them in their homosexual orgies. Lot tried to dissuade them. They were having none of it, and tried to force their way into Lot’s home. Even when the angels struck them blind they kept coming. So the angels delivered Lot and his family from Sodom, and rained fire on Sodom that same day.
This is something of a prophetic picture. We know this, because Jesus told us that in a prophetic passage of His coming. Thus, the homosexuals forcing their way into the church is a major sign of the nearness of the coming of Christ.
But we are still called to spiritual battle, and we are still called to take a stand against the sin (along with all other sin).
The rainbow was a sign of remembrance of God’s wrath when He destroyed the earth because of sin. Among those sins are included pursuing strange flesh (homosexuality, beastiality, perhaps relations with fallen angels). It was also a sign of his promise not to destroy the earth with water again.
When the homosexual agenda took the rainbow as their symbol, they did it to mock God. They were slapping God in the face. God is offended, and will bring wrath in His time, if they do not repent. He will bring judgment on America in His time because much of America has approved of their agenda.
So, yes, I admit … I also AM OFFENDED at the rainbow flag. Any true believer should be.
