The Abomination and A Piece of Paper

Brothers and sisters, all who believe in Christ Jesus. You are looking at this same sex marriage in the wrong light. You are seeing it only in the eyes of the flesh.

First I must say that the only wedding and marriage that matters is the marriage of the Lamb.

“Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

Then he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’” And he said to me, “These are true words of God.” Revelations 19:7-9

Cohabitation of The Flesh

Flesh can only begat flesh, and spirit can only begat spirit… Well are looking through the eyes of the flesh when we think of marriage as a document giving legal rights to cohabitate with another person. Marriage is not just a piece of paper, a ceremony or a contract saying that you can legally have sex with another person.

In the eyes of the flesh we seem to think that just because two people have a document saying that they are bound legally then all is right with the world and in the sight of God. But that is not how God sees it.

God say the union between a man and a women from the very beginning as more than an act of superficial commitment. He saw it as a permanent bonding between two people, a man and a women, making them one flesh. It is so interconnected because the woman was created out of man and when she was whole she was reconnected with him to create one new flesh.

Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him. So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.

The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of Man.”

For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed. Genesis 2:18-25

God in His wisdom didn’t see fit for man to be alone. Also this was done to populate the earth.

I am going to go ahead and say this even though I know I will create a firestorm and I will become the scourge of wrath by some of you preachers who read this. You are not the ones that ordained marriage and you are not the ones bring anybody into union with each other. You may be conducting the ceremony but it is God who ordained it.

That said, it is a union in the flesh, “and the two become one flesh”. Not one spirit. The only spirit man becomes unified with is the Holy Spirit.

Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:1-6

The union of marriage here in this world is only for here and now in this world. We need to stop looking at it in the flesh. We as believers are no longer of the flesh. It has been crucified with its lust. We are now a new spiritual being betrothed to Christ Jesus. To show you that marriage is a temporal thing let’s see what Christ said about marriage

Some Sadducees (who say that there is no resurrection) came to Jesus, and began questioning Him, saying, “Teacher, Moses wrote for us that IF A MAN’S BROTHER DIES and leaves behind a wife AND LEAVES NO CHILD, HIS BROTHER SHOULD MARRY THE WIFE AND RAISE UP CHILDREN TO HIS BROTHER. “There were seven brothers; and the first took a wife, and died leaving no children. “The second one married her, and died leaving behind no children; and the third likewise; and so all seven left no children. Last of all the woman died also. “In the resurrection, when they rise again, which one’s wife will she be? For all seven had married her.” Jesus said to them, “Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not understand the Scriptures or the power of God? “For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven Mark 12:18-25

There will not be marriage as we know it in heaven. The reason is because we are Christ’s bride.

Ok, ok that’s is that. Now look at this same sex marriage debacle… We know that in Leviticus 18 in the law of the commandments it says that a man should not lay with another man and a women should not lay with another women. It also contains a great number of other sexual sins that we should not do. All of which are an abomination. And they all have the same pne

‘For whoever does any of these abominations, those persons who do so shall be cut off from among their people. Leviticus 18:29

This is the law of God and the world is condemned by this law. But it’s not just a law for homosexuality. And homosexuality is not the only abomination. All sexual sin is an abomination in the eyes of God and are condemned under the law.

We have a tendency to judge one sexual sin over another thinking one is less of a sin then the other. We are wrong. As I said before all sexual sin is and abomination to God and we are not to be the Judge of the world but rather those in the body.

For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church? 1 Corinthians 5:12

God has already done that. The world sits in judgement already. There is only one-way for the world not to be judged. That is to believe in the one who God sent, Christ Jesus our Lord.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. “This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. “For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. “But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.” John 3:16-21

We are being lied to, deceived into judging the world. It is the devil that is at work in all of this same sex marriage war that is raging now. It is not our place to defend God nor is it our place to judge anyone in the world. This is what the Pharisees were doing, it is only self-righteousness. This is what Christ stood against Pharisees for.

I am not condoning or siding with Gay marriage. I am saying that just because they have been given a piece of paper stating that they can have a union with someone of the same sex that they are united as one. That is all it is a piece of paper. They cannot become one flesh and they haven’t united into anything.

If anyone is living in a homosexual relationship they are already sinning. Just because they get a peice paper stating that it is legal doesn’t make it anymore or any less sinful.

Also just because we do not agree with it and judge it as against Gods law doesn’t mean a thing. Comeing against same sex marriage in the defense of Gods law doesn’t change it or make you anymore righteous. We are only acting in the flesh and so becoming self-righteous.

The truth is, how can anyone of you lead any anyone living in sin to the truth of salvation in our Lord Jesus Christ if you’re heaping condemnation upon their heads? The Pharisees did that with the woman caught in adultery. How did that work for them?

If you don’t want to preside over their marriage ceremony, don’t. If you’re offended, pray for them. Pray that the Spirit of the Lord will call them to deliverance from their spirit of homosexuality and that they will repent and believe.

Please, brothers and sisters in the Lord. Stop falling into this trap set for you by the devil. We are of sprite. The world is of flesh. Stop walking in the flesh and start looking at this from a view of the Spirit.

Now for those who cannot hear this in the spirit. Think on this. There is an election for the office of the United States coming up. One political party wants to make the other party look as bad as they can. So if you can see this, understand that this is only a political move on the part of the Democrats to make the God fearing Conservative Republicans look like they don’t care about human rights and to try to unite the minorities so they will win the election.

Either way Wake Up! The time for sleeping is over.
