This message is a clarion call to all Christians not to ignore or wave aside the recent happenings in the world. Since 2010, the world has been witnessing strange happenings in every nation and all of these point to Matt.24.7 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places." These words were spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ to his followers. To those who are of the world, it is strange happenings, but those who are of God's Kingdom -it's the beginning of the end time prophecies. So we as believers of Christ have to start putting our houses in order since we neither know the date or time of Christ coming.
In the past three years, the world has seen more destruction of lives and properties than ever before and more are coming. While all these mind bogging events are unfolding, the Kingdom of Satan has been pursuing an evil agenda that is intended to unsettle Christians all over the world; defilement of the temple of the Holy Spirit. This evil strategy has been in the brewing pot in the past fifty years and its implementation has risen in 2013. This prince of destruction has over the years penetrated every facet of human society and planted his agents in government, the judiciary, the economy, industry, banking and finance to name but a few. These human agents welded considerable power and have the ability to influence government policies to their desired directions. To buttress this insight, you would agree with me that the recent laws passed in Britain, France, Argentina, USA, Brazil, New Zealand, South Africa and Australia to formally legalize same sex marriage has moved from the closet into a worldwide consent! These are nations with large Christian populations with teeth, but who cannot bite. Most of the Christian leaders in these countries are full of rhetoric! The power to break demonic influences on their countries has been taken away by their bickering and taste for worldly things (James 1:27). Their once majority voices have now become a minority in influencing government policies and the laws of the land. The glory of God has departed from these countries, because their governments have openly declared war with God's kingdom through these abominable legislations on same sex marriage. These countries have become spiritually desolate from the day these laws were accented to by their heads of government. Christians in these countries have to redouble their prayer and intercessory lives, because the worst is on its way.
Satan has blinded the hearts of those heads of government to see this legalization is part of the democratic process of fundamental human rights for all citizens of the country. The Kings of Sodom and Gomorrah allowed the permissiveness of their nations to degenerate into sexual perversion and thereby incurred the wrought of Almighty God. Gen 13:13 "But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the LORD." All over the nations of the world wickedness has been increasing on a daily basis, never has sexual sin been giving a pride of place in government than now. Christians have to arise and cry out for their nations to the Most High God, because of this grave sin their governments have accented to through this new law. Gen18: 20 "And the LORD said, "Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know."
God Almighty has seen the abomination that the nations are bringing unto his righteous people by the legalization of same sex marriage. This wake -up call is to fortify the Saints and prepare them for the battle of the ages. Matt.24: 12-13 "And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved." Like the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, the devil will use these laws of same sex marriage to torment every family in a way Christians never imagined. Every family will be fighting to keep their children in the way of the Lord –heterosexual marriages. Advocates of same sex marriages will flaunts their new found empowerment by the law of their nations. This provocation will continue in public and private domain until it reaches a crisis level. Below is the account of what happened in Sodom as the pervasion grew and every family was affected, except Lot's family who upheld the tenets of the LORD. Gen. 19:4-5 " Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot and said to him, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally. So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, and said, Please, my brethren, do not do so wickedly! "See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof."
The evil deed to cause many to fall from the faith is gradually being implemented by the agents of darkness in the four corners of the world. Our Master, Jesus Christ forewarned us more than two thousand years ago, of the impending crisis that will engulf the earth as the end of time draws nearer! He gave us hidden keys within the Bible to prepare our minds and hearts so that we can collectively resist the desolation that will befall the earth. Daniel spoke about the abomination of desolation in his writings in Daniel 9:10. One of the attribute Prophet Daniel's visions highlighted about the anti-Christ in Daniel 11: 36-37 "Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. "
We need to come together as one body through prayers for a love revival amongst Christians to counter the abominations against our God. The evil kingdom is using sexual sin to create a separation between believers and the Almighty God. We should learn from the advice of Balaam to Balak that caused Israel to fall from the glory of God in Rev.2: 14 "But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality." This singular action caused twenty-three thousand Israelis to die of a plague in one day. Sexual sin leads to eternal damnation because it defiles the temple of the Holy Spirit, which is your body. Our Lord Jesus Christ went a step further by saying if you look at a woman or man lustfully you have committed sin. From recent happenings, sexual sin is the weapon Satan is using to destroy God's family; using the instruments of Facebook, Internet websites, Chatrooms, Porngraphic sites and Mobile handsets. Repent from sexual sin and depart from evil. All other sin is outside the body, but sexual immorality is a sin against the body and God abhors that as captured in 1 Corinth 6: 13 & 18 " Foods for the stomach and the stomach for foods, but God will destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body." NKJV
Brethrens, there is no verse in the scriptures that says Governments of Nations will legalize sexual immorality on the scale we are witnessing now. But today that reality is starring us in the face and we are unable to do anything about it as Christians. Abraham, our father, had to plead with the LORD for the righteous living in Sodom starting with fifty persons, but unfortunately, only one family was righteous in that Kingdom. And true to the promise of God, that righteous man and his family were sent to safe grounds before the destruction of that nation. As the righteous of these nations, you have to preach to your leaders and those necks deep in sexual immorality to repent and come to Jesus Christ. At the same time warning them of the catastrophic consequences' of their actions, which is inescapable. Rev 2:20 "Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols." What we are reaping today is the lackluster attitude of Christian leaders in not admonishing governments of their nations to tow the line of God in morality and leadership. We have reached a crisis level now where you have to save some with fear, so that you are not dragged along with them to eternal hell fire. ( Jude 1:22-23 'And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.")
O'righteous of the nations, arise with a single voice with a cry of salvation for your governments. Seeing they do not see, hearing they do not hear. For the ruler of this present darkness has blinded them and made them also deaf to the voice of truth. Open their eyes and free their deafness for the sake of the righteous in the land.
