Where I Stand

As with any sin, I stand against the sin of homosexuality and America's dreadful decision to embrace it. I don't know where the consciences of the Supreme Court judges are or whether or not they've ever truly desired Righteousness in their hearts. But I know that each of us innately knows right from wrong, because the scriptures say so (Genesis 3:22a).

As one raised in the reverential regard and admonitions of Almighty God from birth but who fell prey to childhood molestation and for a great while chose homosexual practices as a way of life, I know first-hand the enemy's intentions to devastate each life via that particular sin. Sins of sexual immorality bring curses upon one's own body like nothing else, but I also know that those sins are not above or beyond Daddy's power to deliver if one is willing to be set free.

I mourn for America, but I can't (won't) "take on" her foul decisions as though they were my own; they're not. Instead, I must look up and lift up my head in these last days, knowing that my redemption draws near.  So should all of you, because we are not experiencing anything the Lord didn't say we would as He spoke to His disciples so long ago in Luke 21:10-19 and also in the Book of Matthew:
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." (Matt. 24:37-39)
Of the days of Noah to which Christ refers, the OT scriptures say this:
"And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." (Genesis 6:5)
That definitely sums up where the majority of earth is right now, and where my heart would be were it not for the Lord and His great mercy.

Just as God enabled me to make up my mind to flee sin and its lusts, I have made up my mind to continue to pray for this country. However, via this post and my daily living, I am also stating plainly to America and the world that I am on the Lord's side. I agree with Him and with His Destiny, Purpose, Plans, Definitions, and Directives over my life with every fiber of my being. He has girded and upheld my faith with His Wisdom - there is no blindness in me.  I know in Whom I have believed, and in Whom I believe, and in Whom always I will believe. The Lord God Jehovah, Father of my Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ, is the Head of me and of my life now and forever.

I realize that many - if not all - of those who render such allegiance to God and His Christ will be killed for doing so.  With each passing day that encroaching reality reasserts itself.  But, friends, I would rather die than betray Him; I mean that with all of myself.  So I've asked Almighty God to enable me to keep my words and remain faithful to Him unto death that I will receive His Crown of Life.  How about you?

Now I feel better for plainly stating where I stand, and I rejoice in Christ Jesus over it all. Hallelujah! Amen!
