Deuteronomy 7:6-7 for thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God; the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people.
Isaiah 7:14-15 therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a son and shall call his name Immanuel. Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.
Romans 8:6-8 for to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Galatians 6:8 for he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
Itís their rights! Woke up this morning and I heard the Lord say itís their rights. Lord what do you mean itís their right? Just as you have a right to choose so does everyone else. I force myself on no one, they choose to love me and serve me. Years ago I was one coming up in the Church that condemned sin and the sinner but I learned that God condemned sin but He loved the sinner. As much as I wanted to hate my daughter in law for murdering my eldest son, I could not. I could not hate her because I loved her. Where love truly is you wonít find hate. Although I loved her I hate what she did. People make choices in life and they have to answer for them. I will not answer to God for hating anyone. People have a right of choice; God gave them that right.
Right, what does that mean? In this case it means itís their prerogative, they have been granted the choice to be virtuous, (just, honorable, noble, ethical), or religious (devout, pious, saintly, angelic, devoted, reverent, spiritual, and holy). Over the last few weeks many, me myself included have made comments about the Presidentís statements concerning Gay Rights. Well here I am just realizing that they do have a right to their choice. God gave them that right to choose righteousness or unrighteousness, cleanness or uncleanness, and to be holy or unholy. He forces himself on no one. Does God love them? Yes He does! Does He love the choice they have made? No! Itís blasphemy! They have decided that they arenít what God made them to be; male or female, man or woman. Itís a complete denial and God hates their choice, but they have the right to choose.
Our choices are one way or the other proper or improper, just or unjust, honest or not honest, fair or unfair, legal or illegal, correct or incorrect, accurate or inaccurate, factual or not, true or untrue, valid or invalid, lawful or unlawful, legitimate or illegitimate, honest, fair or not. We as a people in America have been given choices of freedom more than any other Country in the World. We are the land of the free and thatís why everyone wants to migrate (move, emigrate) to America. No matter what we may think about what the President said he answered correctly; they do have the right to choose their lifestyles rather we like them or not.
God gave Adam a choice to obey or not from the beginning. He gave instructions, simple instructions to follow concerning this one tree among so many. Adam stood right there and listened and watched Eve as she spoke to the serpent. This serpent had been taken over by the spirit of Satan himself for a purpose. The snake was a walking creature in the Garden just like man. Satan not being able to come into man at this point because of his spiritual state took on another form instead and beguiled Eve that he may deceive Adam. He didnít come directly at the head but used the butt instead.
He penetrated her senses; first her hearing then her seeing, where she would desire to touch and feel and eventually taste it. After she tasted of it she could smell the sweetness of the juices and being the loving creature she was surely if it was good to her she wanted her husband to also taste of it. Adam hearing, looking and seeing nothing happened when she ate as God had said partook of the fruit of her hand. Immediately they realized they were naked; both of them. Satan had stripped them of their spirituality, pureness, and their innocence. They made choices that we deal with every day.
Satan still deceives us today using the butt more than ever before. Man being made in Godís image was capable of knowing God and returning His love. Satan knows that when man is operating in the Spirit of God in truth and righteousness he makes the right choices; to not sin which is obedience. When man does not make the right choice and sin there are consequences. Do God walk around with a yardstick in His hand behind every man and say I am going to whip you if you donít do as I have instructed? No. So why should we? God told us to train up our children in the way they are to go (Proverbs 22:6) and when they are old they want depart from it. Parents were not to teach their children to do wrong. Children learn what they live. Life in our Country has gone so far away from Godís ordinances that we are losing our children young because of our worldly cares.
In my talking to people that consider themselves to be gay, I find that this choice of theirs was made at a very young age where they had been taken advantage of by an older person whose care they were in or by playmates that had also been taken advantage of. At the early age they were forced upon by either male or female and didnít have a choice so to speak. Now they are grown and most likely they did as they had been done to. Itís like an epidemic. When they tried to tell somebody they didnít listen. Parents because they want things in the world worked more than they care for their children. The children are left unprotected and properly covered by responsible people. Sometime the people we leave them with are people we think have our best interest at heart.
Man has been given a choice to prefer a wife; a woman. Woman has been given a choice to prefer a husband; a man. God made a choice among us to make us man and woman that we recreate in the earth producing more or us; male and female. When we choose any way other than Godís way we make our lives non-effect; we possess not the worth we were put here for. When we cut off reproduction the way God says we are in error. The choices we make will cause us to continue to be in error to the point that God will not judge us we are already judged. We become reprobate (rejected as worthless, condemned, foreordained to damnation, morally corrupt, unacceptable or evil). Itís the Devilís trick of enlarging his kingdom of Hell. He has already been charged, tried, convicted and sentenced. When his sentence of eternity in hell began he wants to take as many men and women as he can with him.
The fight for the souls of men is on as never before. What better way than to cut off reproduction so he doesnít have to vie for the souls of more men. Satan is a manipulator. He tries to make things smooth and comfortable, but we know that with God we will have a struggle. When our ways please God then we have chosen the good. When we choose the lusts of the world, we choke God out. Homosexuality and Lesbianism chokes out not only God but is denies life to come forth. Itís a complete denial of God and we canít make no one want God and obey Him the way He wants us to obey Him. For all have sinned and come short of His glory but there is a sin that is unforgiveable and thatís blasphemy of the Holy Ghost; Godís Spirit that He put in man in the beginning that gave man life. So now how can we shut Him out that His Spirit is no longer reproduced in another life that He gives? God forbid!
A man was to cleave to his wife. They were to cleave to God and that which is good. When a man prefers evil over good it diminishes their life eternally. Itís like so to speak certain people move into a neighborhood and diminish the property value, thatís how abominable sin is to God. Satan's sin diminished Heavenís value and he could no longer abide there that is why he was cast out of heaven and hell was prepared for him, his angels and all that will deny God of mankind. How do we deny Him? What do you mean? We say we love Him and we probably do but we donít obey His Word or accept His Spirit. We cut off our purpose for being in the earth; to reproduce and bring forth life. We deny Him when we say we are something other than He created us to be.
A prideful person is destitute of wisdom although they think they know. God through His Word has not left us without knowledge of our choices. He sent Jesus Christ into the World to reprove man of their doings, yet they will lie on Him. Satan could not get Jesus to bow to Him so he lied on Him and man believes it because it suits their purpose. Satan comes to lie, steal, kill, and destroy but Jesus came that we may have life and that more abundantly. God is still trying to give man life and a line of reproduction in the earth. This is manís downfall; procreating in a way other than ordained of God. Satan seeks to wreak havoc in the life of man only because he canít go to heaven anymore and wants us to be evicted with him. He wants to ruin what God has given us; the power to keep him under our feet. Satan hates man with a passion and we donít realize it. Wake up man! We canít say like Flip Wilson say ďthe Devil made me do itĒ. Jesus came and took away all excuses of sin.
If a soul sin, a sin sacrifice was offered in the days of old when understanding had not come, but now there are no more sin sacrifices. Jesus paid the ultimate final price for sin. He became the lamb that was spotless and without blemish that was offered up for sin. The soul that sin shall die and if a soul sin and donít utter a repentance they shall bear their iniquity. If a soul touches an unclean thing then he shall be unclean and guilty of the blood of Jesus Christ. We are not without knowledge concerning what we do when we sin so we are already adjudged and adjudicated guilty. We are to put a difference between clean and unclean, holy and unholy. Man is not to act or do as the beast; they are to be sanctified, clean, and holy.
Yes we do have a right to go to hell if we want to; God hates us going but itís our choice. God will always be the God of heaven and earth, Jesus is coming back again to rule the earth, but Satan wonít still be the prince of the air; he will be burning in the fire of hell for eternity and we will too if we donít make the right choices. Amen!
