John, the apostle of the Lamb said 1 John 2:15-17 (NKJV Strong’s) “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.”
It’s clear that the Bible is a very revealing story of man’s quest to enjoy the pleasures of sin with impunity.
But just like no criminal gets away with their crime, no sinner will get away from the punishment of sin……unless…. you beg God for His mercy and forgiveness, repenting of sin.
Proud of getting HIV/AIDS and other STDs?
Proud of infecting others?
Proud that little boys are molested and later become homosexuals themselves?
Proud that women become surgically altered men and that men become surgically altered women?
Proud that laws are made to establish non gender conforming people?
Proud of coming out from hiding what you were secretly doing in the bedroom?
Proud that you deceptively think that God accepts what you do getting same sex weddings.
Proud of the SCOTUS ruling in 2015 establishing the lower court ruling that same sex weddings is the law of the land.
Proud that president Obama honored that decision by lighting up the WH with the homosexual pride colors.
Proud of little kids being indoctrinated through education of homosexuality, watching homosexual porn.
Proud that they’re writing and passing laws to stop “conversion therapy,” arresting preachers that warn people of their sins.
Proud that some families and friends accept you in your condition, but will one day watch you die, and if you’re not saved, you will end up in the pit of hell?
Paul said this…..Romans 6:20-21 (NKJV Strong’s) “For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.”
There’s nothing to be proud about when it comes to homosexuality.
I would assume that homosexuals want to feel free of the shame and the stigmatization of the sin. That coming out of the closet free’s their conscience.
If that were true, why are some of them committing suicide?
They want to blame helping people get rid of the stigma of homosexuality on conversion therapy.
Far from the truth.
No one blames a doctor for offering healing from certain ailments?
Preachers offer salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord and it’s up to man to either accept or reject the offer.
This offer comes with either a blessing when you accept or eternal punishment if you refuse. The reason is that there must be an incentive to make a decision with eternal consequences or benefits if you choose wisely to accept the offer.
We don’t have a problem when our parents punish us for disobeying their rules.
We don’t have a problem when a police office arrests a person for breaking the law.
So if we obey the law, we stay out of jail.
We don’t have a problem when a judge gives their punishment when criminals are convicted of breaking the law.
But when you break God’s law, everyone has a problem with His justice and eternal sentence.
The beautiful thing is that God nailed on the cross our offense and when we repent, we ask for forgiveness, and God abundantly pardons us of our sins.
When we obey the true gospel, we stay out of hell.
When we disobey the true gospel, we’re not allowed in heaven, and we’re sentenced to spend eternity in the flames of hell, fire, and brimstone.
One of the things that people have to be aware of is that satan is the god of this world (see 2 Corinthians 4:4) and he will blind sinners with lies and deceptions (see John 8:44).
Even if the world banishes preaching and the Bible, the Lord can’t be banished and He will speak to the hearts of men to repent and be saved.
satan wants to lie to men and say that you’re hopeless. That there’s no help in God. satan will tell you that you’re doomed. That there’s no way out of the pain you’re feeling. End your life.
But the Lord does the opposite.
The Lord values every life. satan destroys life.
The pride that’s in the heart of men is in defiance of the commands of the Lord to do things His way. satan lies to you to get you to remain God’s enemy.
God sent His Son to gain you as His friend in holiness and righteousness.
However, the danger of ignoring God’s call to be delivered and set free has a “due date.”
Romans 6:23 says…….“The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Proverbs 16:18 (NKJV Strong’s) “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”
God doesn’t want you to be destroyed or to fall.
However, if you insist on believing the deception that the Lord is your sworn enemy and that you don’t want to have anything to do with the Lord, your own will will judge you.
Your own mouth will judge you.
Matthew 12:36-37 (NKJV Strong’s) “But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
It doesn’t have to be this way.
You can walk away from your pride and humble yourself by repenting and asking the Lord for forgiveness.
The sin of homosexuality has brought misery and shame, but through Jesus you can get rid of the misery and shame, and receive His love and grace. You can’t enter into heaven in the sin condition. You must, Jesus said, be born again.
Jesus didn’t die for sin so that you could continue in sin. He died and was raised from the dead to free you from sin.
Exchange your pride for humility.
Be reconciled to God.
