New Law on Gay Marriage and The Christians
Where will you Stand?
Yesterday as many of you know a major law was passed in America. Gay marriage is now legal in all 50 states (6-26-2015).As Franklin Graham states “Christians should prepare for persecution after gay marriage ruling”
Our walk with the Lord is going to be challenged. If your walk is not in His Word each and everyday then your not going to know what God says nor are you going to agree. It is through the Holy Spirit that gives revelation and convicts us of our sins that we do against God. John 16:7 Nevertheless, I am telling you the truth. It is for your benefit that I go away, because if I don’t go away the Counselor will not come to you. If I go, I will send Him to you. 8 When He comes, He will convict the world about sin, righteousness, and judgment: 9 About sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see Me; 11 and about judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.
What is this about?
This is about Christians not able to straddle the line anymore. What happened yesterday is going to show the TRUE BELIEVERS against those who confess they are a Christian. Why is Living His Word speaking about this because with that stance comes persecution. Are you prepared for what is coming by standing in the Word of God and believing exactly what God says. There is no more taking scripture out of context, taking it apart to fit how you see fit or any other reason of why people misinterpret the Word of God. From here forward it is now we either take what He says Literary and in FULL or we will not.
Ephesians 4 1 As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
A BRIEF HISTORY ON HOW THIS BEGAN
TIMELINE OF HOW THIS BEGAN IN AMERICA
- 6-25-1962 – Prayer was removed from Schools
- 1962 – Illinois becomes the first state in the U.S. to decriminalize homosexual acts between consenting adults in private.
- 1963 – Banned Bible Reading and began teaching Evolution
- 1966 – The world’s first the transgender organization, the National Transsexual Counseling Unit, was established in San Francisco.
- 1973 – Passed a law to Abort Baby’s in the Womb
- 1973 – The American Psychiatric Association removes homosexuality from its official list of mental disorders. Harvey Milk runs for city supervisor in San Francisco. He runs on a socially liberal platform and opposes government involvement in personal sexual matters. Milk comes in 10th out of 32 candidates, earning 16,900 votes, winning the Castro District and other liberal neighborhoods. He receives a lot of media attention for his passionate speeches, brave political stance, and media skills.
- 1980 – 10 Commandments no longer in Schools (PROHIBITIONS ON DISPLAY OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS)
- 1980 – At the 1980 Democratic National Convention held at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, Democrats took a stance supporting gay rights, adding the following to their plank: “All groups must be protected from discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, language, age, sex or sexual orientation.”

- 1990 – School Shootings escalated (see list here)
- 2003 – First Openly Gay Bishop
The reason for this timeline is to show the events that are occurring slowly and how everyone is adapting to it. So where was the church during those times? Where will we stand today? How long are we going to passively stand by?
DOES THIS NEW LAW AFFECT CHRISTIANS
The answer is YES. WHY? Our rights to believe what God says in full and about this subject are gone. A Christian in America is no longer protected by the Constitution.
Since yesterday many Pastors are speaking out about what has happened concerning the new law (Perry Stone, Franklin Graham, and others soon to come). We have read many comments of the ones who are for this, and they make it about them. What they do not understand is that our Right to Believe in our Beliefs is now going to be challenged. Their right to this lifestyle is now protected by law. Christians now will no longer be able to freely live their beliefs. This is the message we are wanting to communicate.
This is just day 2 of what happened yesterday. It is only going to get worse and progress from here. Satan has a short time to achieve what he thinks he will. As a BELIEVER you should REJOICE and have SORROW for what is happening because the TIME is drawing NEAR. God loves everyone, but GOD will NOT allow or accept SIN. Pray for WISDOM and DISCERNMENT to make GODLY acceptable choices. For even the elect will FALL AWAY, and Pray this does not happen to you.
Matthew 24:24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise, and they will show great signs and wonders so as to deceive and lead astray, if possible, even the elect (God’s chosen ones). 25 See, I have warned you beforehand.
WHERE DO I START IF I AM NOT WALKING THE WHOLE TRUTH
If you’re a Christian and believed that homosexuality or any sin was okay and now the Truth has been revealed through the Holy Spirit then the next step is to repent and believe God means what He says. God will forgive your sin as long as your turn and live according to His Ways! I John 1:5 This is the message God has given us to pass on to you: that God is Light and in him is no darkness at all. 6 So if we say we are his friends but go on living in spiritual darkness and sin, we are lying. 7 But if we are living in the light of God’s presence, just as Christ does, then we have wonderful fellowship and joy with each other, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from every sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and refusing to accept the truth. 9 But if we confess our sins to him, he can be depended on to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong. And it is perfectly proper for God to do this for us because Christ died to wash away our sins. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we are lying and calling God a liar, for he says we have sinned. Your not going to do right until Jesus Christ becomes your first LOVE! God will deny anyone who does not put JESUS FIRST (John 14:6).
So where do I start – you start here II Timothy 3:15 You know how, when you were a small child, you were taught the holy Scriptures; and it is these that make you wise to accept God’s salvation by trusting in Christ Jesus. 16 The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives; it straightens us out and helps us do what is right. 17 It is God’s way of making us well prepared at every point, fully equipped to do good to everyone. You also start by reading God’s Word and APPLYING IT to YOURSELF and not others. My life as a Christian will never agree with the life of an unsaved person. As Christian if I choose to stand by SIN and tolerate it then this is an abomination to GOD. IT IS BY GOD’s GRACE that I STAND!
AS A CHRISTIAN THIS IS WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice! 5 Let all men know and perceive and recognize your unselfishness (your considerateness, your forbearing spirit). The Lord is near [He is coming soon]. 6 Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.
7 And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
8 For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].
9 Practice what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and model your way of living on it, and the God of peace (of untroubled, undisturbed well-being) will be with you.
As children of God obeying God expresses our love to Him (I John 2:3-6). We love you and therefore we cannot lie about a lifestyle (all sin Romans 3:23) that goes against God. We are all born into sin (Psalm 51:5), and we all have a choice to continue to live unto ourselves or in need of a Savior (Deuteronomy 11:26). Does everyone understand everyones life? The answer is NO but Jesus does. He took on ALL SINS of the world (Matthew 1:21, Matthew 6:15, Matthew 26:28 (are but a few)). Each and everyone one of us has a battle (Ephesians 6:12). A battle for our life and soul. We hope this video will help!
