Same-Sex Marriage: Change of Law & Persecution of Christians

by John Greene

homosexual-loveThe adoption of same-sex marriage in the United States has stirred all kinds of fears that have come along with the change mandated by the Supreme Court. The ‘policeman of the world’ that continually parades ‘human rights’ now joins some 20 other countries (out of 196) that give legal recognition to legalized homosexual unions. This slow tsunami of nations has adopted the idea of leveling the playing field for ‘legal marriage’ in the world:

The Netherlands (2000)
Belgium (2003)
Canada (2005)
Spain (2005)
South Africa (2006)
Norway (2009)
Sweden (2009)
Argentina (2010)
Iceland (2010)
Portugal (2010)
Denmark (2012)
Brazil (2013)
England-Wales (2013)
France (2013)
New Zealand (2013)
Uruguay (2013)
Luxembourg (2014)
Scotland (2014)
Finland (2015)
Ireland (2015)
United States (2015)

punch-drunk-on-powerThis has established a new normal in these nations. Meanwhile, many Christians in the United States remain shocked that their ‘Christian nation’ could be party to such a decision. What they don’t realize is that they have already given their consent through the corporate status of their church (in the United States), the mechanism that gives their institution of choice a ‘tax-free’ status. While some pastors have rankled against what they are now facing, some are ‘warming’ to this issue. That is because Christians are not united on the issue of homosexual marriage. Those that define themselves as Anglicans and Episcopalian, as well as certain other churches and denominations in approving nations are already on the same-sex bandwagon. Many of those on the fence will ultimately side with the state in order to keep what authority they have through the state. (“Religion, Politics, Power & Financial Corruption“; “A New World of Religion?“; “End Time Delusion: Seeking A United Nations of Religion“)

supreme court united statesEleven years after homosexual marriage was originally made legal in the ‘Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ (a well established state for Federal trial balloons), the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution guarantees it throughout the country. Prior to the ruling, 36 states and the District of Columbia had legalized homosexual marriage. The 5-4 decision of the Supreme Court relies on their interpretation of the 14th Amendment. They state that limiting marriage only to traditional marriage violates the amendment’s guarantee of equal protection under the law. The fact is that this decision has been underway since Massachusetts adopted it. A house divided will soon fall. (“Homosexuality As Sin“; “Understanding Sin“)

“And if a reign is divided against itself, that reign is unable to stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house is unable to stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself, and is divided, he is unable to stand, but has an end. No one is able to enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man, and then he shall plunder his house.” – Mark 3:24-27, ISR98

vote propagandaMany fear that this ruling opens up a divided house of Christians to persecution. It already has for those that unwittingly opened themselves up for that persecution, for those that continue to hold to their values, or those that actually seek to adhere to scripture. How have Christians arrived at this time? Most Christians in the United States have unwittingly already given their consent through their church, as wards of tax-free state corporations. The ‘man of lawlessness’ has adopted homosexual unions as the law of the land, but Christians have been ignoring the sins of politics, continually voting these ‘worldlings’ into office and making themselves part of the world. Like the trickle down theory of economics laid out by politics of the past, praying and voting has never worked for Christians. They have made the sin of the world their own. In this way, and through their silence, Christians have agreed with this lawlessness that is no part of YHWH’s righteousness. (“Christians, Tyranny & the Man of Lawlessness“; “Bible Prophecy: The Man of Lawlessness“; “Delusion & the Tightening Noose of the Beast System“)

scripture persecutionBut this is just part of the problem that Christians routinely ignore. Persecution always comes from civil governance. Worse, when civil governance is married to religion, enhanced evil emerges. A fair example of this is the slavery issue that is part of the DNA of the United States (so says Barack Obama). When pastors approved and supported the lawlessness of the world (separation from YHWH’s righteousness), this cancer led to the enhancement of slavery, persecution and civil war. Papal authority and civil governance produced the Dark Ages. Christians always lose when they are allies of the state – even the eternal life that they claim to hold so dear. Those Christians that continue to ignore tyranny and anti-christian conduct do so at their own peril. This is in addition to the reality of those disciples that are dedicated to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, [Dedicated, Set Apart Spirit] will undergo persecution. (“Millenniums of Human Exploitation“; “Incentives of Deception “; “Truth About the Modern Concept of Pastor“)

false christianityThis also points out the difference between a Christian and a disciple of the Messiah. Yes, Christians are being persecuted for their values, but many of them belong to false religion that does not follow scripture, but the traditions and fables of men. This puts them in double jeopardy, separated from the approval of man’s authority AND the authority of their Heavenly Father. Many of us that have patted ourselves on the back for being part of truth are actually anchored to falsehood. The false church of man has sat at the table of the rich man, and is now in the position of being induced to throw up the choice morsels that it has enjoyed. (“What is ‘God’s Church?’“; “Consenting to Fables of Men“; “YHWH: The Choice to Stay Loyal“; “Which Shepherd Do You Believe?“)

“When you sit down to eat with a ruler, look carefully at what is before you, and put a knife to your throat if you are an owner of an appetite. Do not desire his delicacies, for it is the bread of lies. Do not labor to be rich, cease from your own understanding. Will your eyes fly on it? And it is not! For surely it makes wings for itself, it flies into the heavens like an eagle. Do not eat the bread of one having an evil eye, and do not desire his delicacies, for as he thinks in his heart, so is he! He says to you, ‘Eat and drink,’ but his heart is not with you.You shall vomit the bit you have eaten and spoil your pleasant words.” – Proverbs 23:1-8, HRB

modern kings tableBut to be a disciple of the Messiah is not necessarily to be a Christian. A modern Christian most often adheres to traditions and fables of the world over the truth of YHWH and the ministry of Yahshua [Jesus]. Those with an evil eye want to seduce you to act against your conscience, if you have established one. They oppose you, secretly envying your trust, hoping to entice you to follow after them for their own purposes. The Way has been subverted by many since the time of Yahshua [Jesus], even by those that have adopted their label as ‘Christian.’ This was a label originally given by the Roman Empire and their writers. Most of us have carried this lie into our century. It isn’t pretty. Many have been deceived, just as our Savior warned us about. The machinations of Satan and man are unable to stand, to continue indefinitely. Unrighteousness will fall, will always be judged. (Matthew 7:1-2, 12:25; John 7:24, 12:48; Hebrew 10:30; “Pursue Righteousness“; “Justice & Righteousness“; “Are You a Christian First or Last?“; “Breaking Strongholds of False Authority“)

“So Yahshua [Jesus] answering, said to them, ‘Beware that nobody deceives you because many will come in my authority saying ‘I am anointed.’ So many will be deceived. Also, you should expect to hear of wars and reports of wars. Take note that you aren’t frightened because all must come to pass. Nevertheless, the conclusion is not yet. For nation will rear up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and will be scarcity of food, and plagues, and earthquakes in occupied places. Now all these things begin pains of distress. At that time you will be surrendered to pressure and death. You even will be hated under all nations for My authority. And at that time many will be enticed and will betray one another. For many false prophets will rear up and deceive many, for wickedness will multiply. The love of many will be chilled, but they that endure to the end, they will be saved. For that good message of the Kingdom will be proclaimed in all the world for a testimony to all nations, and at that time the end will come.’” – Matthew 24:4-14, direct translation

charisma hot air balloon propagandaAs we live in this day, there is no longer an excuse for blindly accepting the charismatic hot air of the world. As a result, disciples of Messiah will not be easily trapped by this propaganda of seduction. Disciples are not to allow themselves to be exploited. Disciples are not to be naive, or to seek to retaliate, but to be on guard, guarding our hearts from evil, the unrighteousness of the world. (Matthew 10:16, Mark 6:11; Luke 9:3-6; Romans 16:17-19; Proverbs 14:7; “Culture: Prompting Falsehood Through the Lie“; “Beware of False Teachers & Disciples“; “The False Shepherd & the True Shepherd“; “The Reality of Judgment & Your Preparation“)

“Be sober, keep awake, because your adversary the devil is as a roaring lion, prowling, plotting whom to devour. Resist him, firm in the belief, aware that the same hardships are experienced by your brothers in the world.” – 1 Peter 5:8-9, direct translation

“Do not speak in the ears of a fool, for he will despise the good sense of your words.” – Proverbs 23:9, HRB

The truth of the Messiah and the Holy Spirit is freely available to the world, the truth that the world fails to understand and often laughs at. His disciples understand His Purpose and Who they must trust. Will you understand the truth, not the relative truth of the world, but the righteousness of YHWH? (Matthew 13:19; John 12:31, 14:16; 1 John 5:19; James 4:7; Ephesians 2:1-2, 6:12; Hebrews 4:12; “Trusting in YHWH Instead of Princes“; “A Branch of the Vine Through Trust“)

“At that time, if anyone has said to you, ‘Look, in this place or that place is the anointed,’ do not trust them. For that reason false Messiahs and false prophets will rear up, yielding great signs and wonders, so that if possible, the chosen would be deceived. See, I have told you before. Certainly, when they have said to you, ‘Look He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out. ‘Look in the private storehouse.’ Do not trust them. For as the shining light comes out of the east and shines to the west, in this way also will the Son of man be. For whatever spot the dead bodies are in, there will the eagles gather.” – Matthew 24:23-28, direct translation

“For this reason we are not weary of the ministry in which we have engaged, just as we are not weary of the mercies that have been upon us. But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness, nor corrupting the Word of YAHWEH, but by the revelation of the truth commending ourselves to every conscience of men before YAHWEH. But, if our good news is being hidden, it has been hidden to those who are lost, to those in this age, whose eyes have been blinded by Elohim, because they did not believe, lest the light of the glorious good news of the Messiah, who is the image of YAHWEH, should shine on them.” – 2 Corinthians 4:1-4, HRB

“Blessed is the Supreme Elohim and Father, and the Master, Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah, who according to His great compassion, bore us into one purpose; a living expectation through the resurrection of Yahshua the Messiah from the dead into a continuing inheritance, even undefiled and unfading, guarded in the heavens for us. By the power of Elohim, we are protected through belief into deliverance, ready to be revealed in the last season.” – 1 Peter 1:3-5, direct translation

“For YAHWEH so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, HRB
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your righteousness. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. May it be as you have promised!
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
