What Is God’s View on Same-Sex Marriages?
By Pastor Misty Holmes-Dorsey
What I am going to write about may offend and upset many in the world today including some of those who co-labor with me in ministry. The only voice that needs to be heard is the voice of God. We as Christians that live in America we need to understand that God framed the worlds through faith. (Hebrews 11:3)
John 1 (KJV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Today we are living in very crucial times where decisions are being made that will govern our nation. We live in a land where people are picketing all over our states wanting our government to hear them loud and clear. They are crying out for same-sex marriages to be legalized in all states. There are presently 36 states that have legalized same-sex marriages.
Our Supreme Court is hearing arguments to decide if:
• Same-sex marriages should be legalized in all 50 states? Is the ban on gay marriages constitutional?
• Should gay marriages that were banned previously be reinstituted in the states where they were forbidden?
Understand God did not ordain nor did He authorize same-sex marriage. He destroyed a whole city and a people because of their sin (sexual desires). Understand God has a problem with same-sex marriages. Those in the Body of Christ must have a problem with it as well because God does. It’s not our will it’s His. Have we come to a place and time in this country and in the so-called church that truth and values and God Word means nothing. We barely preach from the whole Bible anymore. We pick and choose Scriptures that will not be offensive or hurt our offerings. We have come to be more concerned with the finances and growth of the church, more than about getting people delivered and set-free so they can live the victorious life that Christ has promised.
Many of us feel that we can pick and chose what part of God and His Word we want. We treat God like a drive up fast food chain; we want it our way because it will suit our desires. This is wrong and not only has America begin to compromise the church has compromised as well. Holiness and Sanctification is no longer a standard of living in the Body of Christ. We have come to a place in time that we don’t want the same things God wants. What has happened to America and it’s people? When Israel sinned judgment soon followed. Let’s learn from history. It’s time to draw nigh to God not far from Him. Deliverance is available to you – there is not a place where our God will not go to free you from the snares and the bonds of the enemy (Satan).
Without people saying anything you can hear the non-verbal speaking louder than the verbal. When we want our desires many feel there’s no need to bring God in this. People have come that they don’t want to hear the voice of God in the church, government, jobs and our homes. We are forgetting without God you can do nothing. What is it for a man to gain the whole world and to lose his soul? Something we don’t think about. I heard my overseer preach a word that in hell they are crying out for you not to go there. The man asked God could Lazarus warn his love ones about this place (hell) so they don’t have to go there.
Luke 16:27-28 (KJV)
27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:
28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
We must understand that God is the Creator of the whole universe and his Word will not return unto Him void. The Bible tells us in:
Psalm 24: (KJV)
24 The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
We need to lean to God for counsel and understanding. He knows all things and He changes not. Therefore, why not consult God for directions and guidance? One thing for sure for all those that have doubted and still doubt the authenticity of the Word of God; know that the Word of God will stand forever and ever. Everything that was written and spoken of shall not fall to the ground.
Matthew 24:35 (KJV)
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Isaiah 46:10 – Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
Proverbs 19:20-21 (KJV)
20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
21 There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.
There are demonic spirits that are organized to destroy you, and we can’t even see because our fleshly desires have controlled us, and we have failed to bring them into submission to an Almighty God. So they have come into many and have taken up house and have you believing all kinds of lies. The Bible tells us in:
1 Timothy 4 (KJV)
1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
Know what is happening in our world is prophecy being fulfilled. Understand God loves you, and He desires to heal and restore you back to Him and His Word. As long as you ignore truth you will stay trapped in a world, and Satan will sift you as wheat, but know one thing that Christ is interceding for you.
Let’s look at what happened in the Garden of Eden where Satan asked Eve did God say. Just as she reasoned out God’s will many are doing the same today. Reasoning when it comes to God’s Word is a satanic principal, which leads to rebellion than to witchcraft. Eve used her sight to taste what was forbidden with her eyes before she put it in her mouth. As a result of their sin, they were thrown out of the garden. Know that your eyes will cause you to taste what is forbidden. Don’t let your untrained eye to cause you to lust after that, which is not natural. They paid a price to see and at the end still could not see.
Genesis 3:6 – And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Let’s look at some Scriptures. Scriptures are not meant to scare you but to cause you to hear God and seek out his will for your life and others. To do this, we must pull down our thoughts, imaginations, and preconceived ideas and allow God to speak to us.
Some of you may even believe in the Darwin’s theory of evolution. Well know this before he died he gave his life to the Lord and got saved while he was on his deathbed. He repented and recanted his theory.
God is the one that created the heavens and the earth and all that is in it. He is the author and the finisher of our faith.
Genesis 1:1 – That in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:3 – And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Genesis 1:6 – And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
Genesis 1:9 – And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
Genesis 1:11 – And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
Genesis 1:14 – And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
Genesis 1:20 – And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
Genesis 1:24 – And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
Genesis 1:26-28 – 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 all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto 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 moveth upon the earth.
Genesis 1:31 – And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
I want you to look at what God spoke and said during creation. He knew what He was doing before the foundations of the earth. Do you really desire to know whom and what defines marriage, God and His Word does and they cannot be separated?
21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
1 Corinthians 7 (KJV)
7 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
Ephesians 5:31 (KJV)
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
God constituted marriage between man and woman. He also destroyed a city because of the sexual sin and the corruption. God is a God of love, and He is a God of judgment. Are we ready to pay the price for our sin (missing the mark)?
Ezekiel 14:13 (KJV)
13 Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it:
What disaster are we bringing on our land and into our families? Your iniquities will visit up to four generations. Is there anyone that will stand for truth and not be moved? Stand in a place where compromise is not an option. Is there anyone willing to allow God’s Word to come forth as the two-edge sword? It’s time to speak and release the Word. Our church, nation and the people are at hand. Let us continue to speak truth and cry loud and spare not.
Genesis 18:20-21 (KJV)
20 And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.
All I can say is that God’s Word will not return unto Him void. We need to PRAY FOR REAL!!! – Same-sex marriages are one of the open doors for iniquity (lawlessness) to abound because people will throw off their restraints.
WAKE UP CHURCH! WAKE UP AMERICA! COME INTO YOUR BIRTH RIGHT!
