GOD ORDAINED MARRIAGE
Dan & Lynda

In the beginning, Genesis 1:26 - 28, we read, "And God said, 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.'  So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.  And God blessed them, and God said to them, 'Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.'"

God gave the man called Adam the woman called Eve, instructing them to "be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth," someting only a sexual union between a man and a woman could accomplish. 

Genesis 2:24 says, "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."

Genesis 4:1 reads, "And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived..."

God ordained marriage to be between a man and a woman who can procreate.  Homosexual couples can not conceive and beget offspring, and are not qualified to marry.   

In the Holy Bible, I Corinthians 11:3, Paul writes, "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God."

I Peter 3:1 says, "Likewise, you wives, be in subjection to your husband," continuing through verse 7 which says, "Likewise, you husbands, dwell with them  according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife..."

In Colossians 3:18 & 19 Paul says, "Wives, submit yourselves unto your husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.  Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them."  In verses 23 & 24, he says, "And whatsoever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord you shall receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ."

I Corinthians 7:3 & 4 reads, "Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.  The wife has not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband has not power of his own body, but the wife."

Malachi 2:11 & 12 says, "Judah has dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah has profaned the holiness of the Lord (the Lord's holy institution of marriage) which He loves, and has married the daughter of a strange (or foreign) God.  And the Lord will cut off the man that does this..."

All through scripture it is very clear that God loves His institution of marriage and the concept of family, and the scriptures make it abundantly clear that marriage in the eyes of God is between only a man and a woman.  

   


Jesus prays for us in the garden at Gesthemane just prior to His betrayal, arrest, persecution and crucifixion.

God loves all of us, including gays and lesbians, but He does not love homosexuality.  Read your Bible. 

I'll point out just three scriptures in both the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible: Genesis 19, Leviticus 18:22, Deuteronomy 23:17 in the Old Testament of the Bible and in the Torah, and Romans 1:24 - 32, I Corinthians 6:9 & 10 and Jude 1:5 - 7 in the Bible's New Testament.  There are more scriptures that condemn the practice of homosexuality.

All repentant sinners are accepted into God's fellowship, His Church, "the body of Christ."  But practicing homosexuals, like practicing murderers and other active sinners, are not qualified for Church membership.  All sinners must truly repent, turning away from their sin, and confessing all of their sins to God, asking His forgiveness in Jesus name, personally accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and yielding to His Holy Spirit in order to become true followers of Jesus Christ and fellowship with Him and other true believers in His Body, the Church.

 


Lot and his family depart Sodom and Gomorrah as fire and brimstone rain down from the heavans.

Any person, church or nation that acts and lives contrary to God's word is wrong and in serious danger of God's judgement and condemnation and ultimate annihilation and total destruction.  At the very least, He will withdraw His blessings and protection, and leave us to fend for ourselves.  And that  can be tragic and even fatal for us as individuals, couples, families and as a nation and a free society.

Most of us know well the story of Sodom and Gomorrah.  But think of the mighty nations of the past and great societies like those in Assyria, Phoenicia, Greece, Babylon, Egypt, and the Roman Empire, as well as Napoleon's France and the old worldwide United Kingdom, great and more modern civilizations and empires.  All of those great civilizations, nations and empires gravitated toward sin and degradation and allowed homosexuality to become a widely accepted practice and lifestyle for many of their citizens.  All of them declined morally, ethically, legally, socially, economically, politically and militarily until they eventually collapsed and disintegrated, and those lands are far different today.  Our books are filled with their failures.

That is not opinion.  That's history.  And we are supposed to learn from it.  


We pray, "May God bless America." But will He? It's up to us. We are the U-S!

Yet, in the home state of wealthy liberal extremists Senator Ted "Chappaquiddick" Kennedy and former radical anti-American Vietnam war protest organizer and leader John Kerry, the state of Massachusetts...it is now legal for men to "marry" men and women to "marry" women, a judicial ruling that clearly defies God's definition of marriage and seriously profanes God's ordained holy institution of marriage.  These contemptable, defiling and sacrilegious ceremonies must not be allowed if we Americans are to remain free and retain our liberty as a nation under God.

And on the left coast in the state of California the city of San Francisco challenged state law, performing hundreds of same-sex "weddings" and issuing thousands of "marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples."

Let us, the U-S, not make the same mistakes as Greece, the Roman Empire and other great nations and societies of the past.  We only have to look the history of Sodom and Gomorrah to understand God's displeasure with human decadence and His attitude regarding sexual perversions.  Do we want to suffer the same fate as those two corrupt cities? 

God's Holy Word in the Torah and in the Holy Bible clearly defines how we should act and live as individuals, as married couples, as families, as a society and as a nation.

We must heed the words of the great old hymn, "Stand up!  Stand up for Jesus, you soldiers of the cross.  Lift high His royal banner!  It must not suffer loss."

And our battle cry must be the Battle Hymn of the Republic: "His truth is marching on!  Glory, glory, hallelujah!!  Glory, glory, hallelujah!!!  Glory, glory, hallelujah!!  His truth is marching on!"
