Supreme Court: Marriage

[American Family Association Tim Wildmon] "Tomorrow, April 28, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for and against redefining marriage in America. The very institution of God's design for marriage as only between one man and one woman is on trial. As hard as it is to believe, nine people will decide if our nation will honor God and obey Him, or turn its back on the most fundamental building block of society and on God himself. This will be the most important decision in the history of America. I'm urging you to do just one thing...Pray. Here is a link to four prayers to help your prayer time. Please, for the sake of our nation, Pray." Gen. 2:18–24, Ps 50:18, Heb 13:4

Response to comment [from a Christian]: "With all due respect to Tim Wildmon, is he not aware that we as a nation quit respecting God decades ago?"

We have. Joel Rosenberg recently said he believes that our country is already under judgment--past the point of no return.

Interesting times.

[Will the War of Gog and Magog happen before or after the Rapture? By Joel Rosenberg] "The truth is we simply do not know the answer for certain, because Ezekiel does not say. Many of the theologians I have cited in this book believe the war will occur after the Rapture. In the novel Left Behind, Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins describe the War of Gog and Magog as having already happened before the Rapture takes place. In The Ezekiel Option, I also chose to portray the war occurring before the Rapture.

In Matthew 24:14, Jesus says, “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come” (NASB). We also know from Ezekiel that God will use the War of Gog and Magog to display his glory to all nations and to pour out his Holy Spirit, particularly on the nation of Israel. As a result of the entire world seeing God defend Israel from the onslaught of the Russian-Iranian coalition, a dramatic spiritual awakening will occur around the globe. It would certainly be consistent with God’s heart for humanity that he would cause this cataclysmic moment to occur before the Rapture in order to shake people out of their spiritual apathy and/or rebellion and give them at least one more chance to receive Christ as their Savior before the terrible events of the Tribulation occur.

But let me be clear: I believe that the Rapture could occur at any moment, and I would certainly not be surprised in any way if it occurred before the events of Ezekiel 38 and 39 come to pass.
Christian theologians speak of the “doctrine of imminence.” This means that according to the Bible there is no prophetic event that has to happen before Jesus snatches his church from the earth. That is, the Bible teaches us that we should be ready for Jesus to come for us at any moment. I fully believe that. But it should be noted with regard to this doctrine that while no major prophetic event has to happen before the Rapture, that doesn’t mean no such event will happen first. Perhaps the clearest evidence of this truth is the rebirth of Israel. This major prophetic event was foretold in Ezekiel 36–37, yet its fulfillment happened before the Rapture. Thus, it is certainly possible that other events—such as the events of Ezekiel 38–39—could happen before the Rapture as well." Prophecy Q & A

"There are a lot of people out there that share Rosenberg's defeatist attitude.  I'm glad that I'm not one of them."

It takes more than posting homo photos to engage in the battle (1 Pe 2:12).

"So Rosenberg's defeatist attitude is global, and just not in places like Colorado?"

So as long as there are people in the world who are Christian the man of sin "cannot come",,,again when the world completely descends into this "great falling away",,,well then they will have the king and government over them they wanted,,,that old serpent satin.

2 Ti 1:7

Response to comment [from a Christian]: "Exactly.  Liberals in these conversations always avoid the word lust. They simply roll it into 'Love' which is a disservice to the actual meaning and the rest of us that are also restricted to using the English language."

If one is willing to commit adultery/fornication ([Ex 20:14] heterosexual [Lev. 20:10–12] or homosexual [Lev. 20:13]), he is also willing to manipulate words (2 Cor. 4:2, 2 Pet. 3:16). The Left (Eccl 10:2, Jn 10:10) is better at language if one prefers to live in delusionland (Ps 10:1–11, Lk 12:17–19, Lk 13:23–30, 2 Thess. 2:1–12, 2 Pet. 3:5, 16, 17).

"...I certainly believe gay people can love each other."

Sodomites ([Ex 20:14] heterosexual [Lev. 20:10–12] or homosexual [Lev. 20:13]) do not love one another. People do not love others when they sin against themselves and another (1 Co 6:18). Love wants what is best for his neighbor (Mt 22:39, Judg 21:25, Jn 10:10).

"...'[R]ights' cases that the current struggle for 'gay rights' liken themselves to."

Men have the right to obey (Ac 5:29). Obey God and live. Don't and you won't (Re 20:14).
"You can build on him (1 Cor. 10:4) or stumble on him (1 Pet. 2:8). He'll be a stepping stone (Ps 18:2) or stumbling stone (1 Cor 1:23, Luke 20:18)." ~ Adrian Rogers

"And sticking with the topic of how this affects our speaking English.  What do members here think about using another word now for holy marriage? Stick with the term "matrimony" perhaps? The pairing "holy matrimony" always comes to mind for me."

Our word is marriage (Gen. 2:18–24). Their word is rebellion (Heb 13:4). God does not leave covenant relationships (Mt 19:6, Rom. 7:2, 3). A marriage is worthy of his presence (John 2:1–11). A sham is not. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen. 13:13, 19:1–28). He did not parTy harTy with them.

Response to comment [from other]: "Protecting children was never the primary function or reason for marriage."

Marriage is honorable with or without children (Heb 13:4).  God wants godly offspring (Ge 1:28, Mal. 2:14, 15).  Marriage was given not just to the Christian but to the world (Gen. 2:18–24).

"If it were, child bearing would be a mandatory requirement for marriage."

Right. Man and wife make a family (Gen. 2:18–24). Children are a blessing (Ps 127:3) but not necessary.

Response to comment [from a Christian]: "Ancestry, descendants, and the natural family were always the foundation of marriage, and many infertile couples are bitterly angry that gays capitalized on their misfortune to redefine marriage."

A Sodomite can't redefine anything (Rom. 7:2, 3). Laws come from God (Ge 2:7, Ro 2:15) not man (Ge 11:4, Ro 1:18). This is God's universe (Ps 103:19). He rules and reigns (Heb 13:4).

But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? [that is, to bring Christ down from above:] [Rom. 10:6].

"He talks about ascending up to heaven to bring it down, or going down to hell and bringing it up. My friend, the righteousness that Paul is talking about—he quotes from Deuteronomy 30:11–14—is available!" McGee, J. V. (1991).

These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit (Jud 14–20).

"Enoch prophesied regarding the false teachers of the last days, and that is a remarkable thing! God apparently did not want the Book of Enoch in the canon of Scripture or it would be there—you may be sure of that. Godly men recognized that it was an apocryphal book, but here is one prophecy that God wanted put into His Holy Word. It is a prophecy concerning the coming of Christ with His saints.

We know from the record in Genesis that Enoch was translated, that is, he was removed from the earth without dying. And sometime in the future, the church, meaning true believers, is to be removed from the earth without dying. Of course, through the centuries since the time of Christ, believers have been dying so that at the present time most of the church has already passed through the doorway of death. And at the time of the Rapture they are to be caught up together with the living believers to meet the Lord in the air. This teaching is not in the Old Testament at all, yet Enoch is a type or a representative of the believers who will take part in the Rapture. Enoch was removed from the earthly scene before the judgment of the Flood came upon the earth. And the believers who compose the true church will be removed from this earth, will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air, before the judgment of the Great Tribulation breaks upon the earth.

Now, after the Great Tribulation, the Lord Jesus will return to the earth. However, at the time of the Rapture He does not come to the earth, but the believers are caught up to meet Him in the air. When we say that the Rapture is the second coming of Christ, we are not quite accurate if we mean that Christ is coming to earth at that time. No, the Rapture is the removal of the church. Then the visible church which is left on the earth, composed of folk who are not true believers, will totally depart from the faith and will enter the Great Tribulation period. And at the end of the Tribulation, the Lord Jesus will actually come to the earth “to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed,” as Jude has prophesied. This is a remarkable passage of Scripture.

Now notice the penetrating truth brought out in Dr. Wuest’s translation of Jude 14–15:

 

  And there prophesied also with respect to these, the seventh from Adam, Enoch, saying, Behold, there comes the Lord with His holy myriads, to execute judgment against all and to convict all those who are destitute of a reverential awe towards God, concerning all their works of impiety which they impiously performed and concerning all the harsh things which impious sinners spoke against Him.

 

It is quite interesting that “holy myriads,” which has to do with the numbers of the saints, can be supernatural or natural creatures, which probably means that the church will come back with Christ when He returns to the earth. If the church does come back with Him to reign on the earth, obviously it had to leave the earth sometime before. You simply have to believe in the Rapture if you believe that Christ is coming back to earth with His saints.

“To execute judgment upon all.” When Christ returns to the earth, He is going to execute judgment. Jesus Himself said this in His Olivet Discourse. It is mentioned again and again in the Word of God, and we have seen it in the Old Testament.

“To convince all that are ungodly among them” or, as Dr. Wuest has translated it, “to convict all those who are destitute of a reverential awe towards God.” They are ungodly in the sense that they leave God out. And that is something that is quite popular today.

“Of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed.” Dr. Wuest translates it: “… concerning all their works of impiety which they impiously performed.” Their works are actually anti–God.

“And of all their hard speeches [harsh things] which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”

Now this prophecy of Enoch, and it is a great prophecy, deals with the judgment upon the organized church which will be in total apostasy after the Rapture. You see, the Rapture will rupture the church—the true believers will leave the earth, and the make–believers will remain and will be here when Christ comes to judge men in that day.” McGee, J. V.

Reply to Scott Robison

This is so embarrassing, but I am going crazy. Ok, I am going to confess my biggest sin. Lust, is my biggest sin. I used to be addicted to porn. I have been married for almost 18 years. I came to Christ about 6 years ago. I am 40 years old. My wife is an unbeliever.

According to Paul in:

1 Corinthians 7:12-16

Now, I will speak to the rest of you, though I do not have a direct command from the Lord. If a fellow believer has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to continue living with him, he must not leave her. 13 And if a believing woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to continue living with her, she must not leave him. 14 For the believing wife brings holiness to her marriage, and the believing husband brings holiness to his marriage. Otherwise, your children would not be holy, but now they are holy. 15 (But if the husband or wife who isn’t a believer insists on leaving, let them go. In such cases the believing husband or wife is no longer bound to the other, for God has called you to live in peace.) 16 Don’t you wives realize that your husbands might be saved because of you? And don’t you husbands realize that your wives might be saved because of you?

So, I am not going to seek to divorce her. Because I love her and there is a chance she can come to Christ.

But Paul says one of the reasons we get married is because of burning lust.

1 Corinthians 7:1-11

Now regarding the questions you asked in your letter. Yes, it is good to abstain from sexual relations. 2 But because there is so much sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman should have her own husband.

3 The husband should fulfill his wife’s sexual needs, and the wife should fulfill her husband’s needs. 4 The wife gives authority over her body to her husband, and the husband gives authority over his body to his wife.

5 Do not deprive each other of sexual relations, unless you both agree to refrain from sexual intimacy for a limited time so you can give yourselves more completely to prayer. Afterward, you should come together again so that Satan won’t be able to tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 I say this as a concession, not as a command. 7 But I wish everyone were single, just as I am. Yet each person has a special gift from God, of one kind or another.

8 So I say to those who aren’t married and to widows—it’s better to stay unmarried, just as I am. 9 But if they can’t control themselves, they should go ahead and marry. It’s better to marry than to burn with lust.

10 But for those who are married, I have a command that comes not from me, but from the Lord.[b] A wife must not leave her husband. 11 But if she does leave him, let her remain single or else be reconciled to him. And the husband must not leave his wife.

But, what happens when your unbelieving wife deprives you?  What do I do?

Jesus said in:

Matthew 5:27-28

27 “You have heard the commandment that says, ‘You must not commit adultery.’  28 But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

So, I can’t lust for anyone else. But can I lust for my wife, who is depriving me?

To give you a little information about my wife she has insecurity issues about her body and feeling sexy….

Maybe because you had viewed porn and have lost your God-given bonding mechanism? :idunno:

You love your ears ticked.  Jesus didn’t go out of his way to speak with this woman only to rubber stamp the wicked lives that the Jews had been living.  They turned marriage into a sham.  He reaffirmed marriage (Mt 19:5-6).  After he spoke, your excuses ran out.  She was more valuable to him than the life she’d been living.  She didn’t need to hop from bed to bed to be seen as valuable in his eyes.  He, unlike all her concubuses loved her.  She could stop whoring around.

Love builds up, it doesn't tear down.

Love tells the truth (Am 5:15, Ac 20;20 ).   

My bible tells me that it is Satan (the adversary) who is the accuser of the brethren.

Why would Satan accuse a false teacher?  Mk 3:24, 2 Pe 2:1.  He loves Biltz’ perversion of marriage (Gen. 2:18–24, Mt 19:5-6).

I am not convinced one iota that you and I are of the same spirit.

Neither am I (Ro 8:14). :juggle:

…You accuse me of loving to have my ears tickled just because I voice my appreciation on an in-depth exegesis of a certain biblical text -- the one of which whom you happen to refer "a whore".

Are you a serial adulteress?  Rom. 7:2, 3  Good news—Jesus came to die for you.  As Farag says:  A.  Admit you’re a sinner.  B.  Believe on the Lord Jesus C.  Confess him as Lord.   

I am amazed. I have never heard anybody in the body of Jesus ever refer to that dear woman at the well whom Jesus revealed himself plainly to as the awaited and beloved Messiah, "a whore" before.

She was a whore and then stopped whoring around (1 Co 6:11).  Repentance is requited to be saved (Acts 2:37, 38).

Don't you know that we all have to give an account for every idle word spoken out of our mouths?

You will give an account for not supporting/honoring marriage (Heb 13:4). 

And then you tell me that I should be prepared for judgment? Seriously? And judgment from whom, may I ask? From Jesus? Or from you?

I don’t know you.  Do you whore around and remain unrepentant for it?

He who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him (Jn 3:36).

What kind of judgment is it exactly, might I ask, you boldly proclaim should I be prepared for?

If you are an unrepentant whoremonger/whore, then you can expect to go to hell (1 Co 6:9-10). This is what we call in the Greek—a no brainer (Rom. 2:8, 9, Rev. 21:8). :burnlib:

Please, by all means, fill me in on all the details.

What other kind of Christian is there? Jn 3:7 

You’re labeled a blasphemer and an apostate.  That’s how cults work.

You’re labeled a blasphemer if you’re a blasphemer and an apostate if you’re an apostate.

Heretics, apostates and false disciples  

I’m not a polygamist anymore.

Is your wife still alive? Rom. 7:2, 3

The Divorce Myth by J. Carl Laney    

You think that’s so bad—what do you think General Petreus was?  He had a mistress and he was married—and his mistress was married.

That makes General Betrayus an adulterer (Ex 20:14).  This isn’t rocket science.  :dizzy:

You don’t need to attack me for this.  I don’t really care if you do.

We know (Re 22:11).

Polygamy isn’t sick.

Good luck with that :juggle: (Lk 19:27).

It was a form of matrimony that was allowed by God.

False (Gen. 2:24). :hammer:

Serpent, John 8:7 says:  “Let him that is without sin cast the first stone.”

Necessary for adulterers (Lev. 20:10–12).  That’s correct.

Keep reading in your bible and you will get to the New Testament...

You thought God did away with the law for the lawless? :dizzy: 1 Ti 1:9

It’s the best part!

For the Christian (1 Jn 3:14).

Jesus died to pay the price for our sins and we are made new again.

If he has made you new (Mt 7:20). :sherlock: God does not forgive men before they repent (Ezek. 18:31).

[Serial adulterer Toney (Rom. 7:2, 3)] People don’t want to hear the truth.  They evade the truth.

You’re projecting again (Eph 4:14). :noway:
