Have We Crossed The Line? :: by Grant Phillips

The President of the United States has made it official. He is in full support of marriage between same sex couples. The Vice-President first presented his support which nudged the President to make his support known now, instead of later at the Democratic convention. Poor VP, his jaws have no hinges.

Several States now support same sex marriage, as do many governors and past governors. Most of the Democratic leadership and some even among the Republican leadership also openly support same sex marriage.

Nearly all Hollywood celebrities, producers, directors, etc. support same sex marriage. Many in the music field have made their support public. Even among religious organizations, same sex marriage is supported and promoted.

Now that the one voice who speaks for all Americans has made his support known publicly, have we crossed the line with God? I personally believe we crossed the proverbial line years ago, but if not, we certainly have now. In my opinion, we are way beyond the line, headed toward destruction. There is no turning back.

I know what you’re thinking. Does not God say?

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

Yes, that is what He promises, and He also says the following:

“So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels.” (Psalms 81:12)

“24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” (Romans 1:24-27)

Folks, it is my opinion that God has given us up to our own vile affections and there is nothing left to look forward to now, as a country, but judgment.

Yes it is true that every true Christian will soon be called up to meet the Lord in the air along with all those true Christians who have already physically died, but where does that leave everyone else? We call our “calling up to be with Jesus” the Rapture, but what follows, is a time of hell on earth unlike anytime in history, a time so terrible that if it isn’t shortened by Jesus Himself, and it will be, there would be no flesh left alive upon the earth. That time is just around the corner.

How a man can stand before the nation and publicly support something so vile and yet claim to be a Christian, is the epitome of narcissism and spiritual ignorance. If this isn’t “thumbing ones nose” at God, then tell me what is.

The Lord God tells us exactly where we have gone wrong as a nation. Listen to these words.

“20Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” (Isaiah 5:20-21)

This, my friends, is the attitude coming from the highest pinnacle of our government and from many of its rank and file citizenry. This pompous Christ rejecting attitude is not going unnoticed by God Almighty. We may think it is, but following will be the bitter pill we will be forced to swallow.

“Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.” (Isaiah 5:24)

Oh I can hear it now, “but He’s talking to Israel, not us.” If anyone thinks for one miniscule of a second that we can get by with our rebellion against God, when the apple of His eye (Israel) could not, then you are in for a very rude awakening. It is commonly known as the time of Tribulation upon earth. It will last for seven years, and it will be arriving soon.

All throughout history God has never put up with homosexual activity. Every time it shows up, a nation falls, and we are going to fall. You can count on it. It is happening as we speak.

God has shown us even in nature that certain acts are a violation of His will. Notice this verse.

“Doth not even nature itself [emphasis mine] teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?” (1 Corinthians 11:14)

The Apostle Paul was speaking about long hair being a shame unto a man, but my point is this. If it were natural for everyone to have sex with anyone and everyone else, whether they be of the same or opposite sex, then why are there so many diseases that are passed around by doing so? If a husband and wife (male and female) have sex with each other and no one else, they will not get sexually transmitted diseases. Is not nature itself trying to tell us something? It most certainly is, but we are not listening. Sin has taken over the heart of man.

Let us not forget this verse.

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature[emphasis mine]:” (Romans 1:26)

Is it possible from the Word of God, for the judgment coming to at least be delayed? Yes, we see it over and over with Israel. They fell to sin. They were judged. They repented. They were restored. Then the cycle repeated itself.

Will judgment be at least delayed for this corrupt earth, and for our country? No, for two reasons, (1) we will not repent, and (2) because time has run out. God has already set in motion those things which must be for His soon, very soon, return. He will not delay His coming. When that last person is born again from above, Jesus Christ will come for His Church, and judgment will begin.

Those engaged in these depraved acts against God and even nature itself, do not want to repent and will not do so. They love their sins, and those very sins are piling up judgment upon one and all. Others who may not participate but yet openly support homosexuality are just as guilty. Yet there are many who neither participate nor openly support this degradation, but by their silence, their support is noted by God.

Have we crossed the line? It is my belief that we have crossed the line, and there is no turning back from God’s judgment, simply because we will not choose to repent.

My advice is, “be ready.” Warn your family and friends. They may not listen, but at least you warned them.

Train your children while you can upon the holy Word of God, the Bible, before you lose them altogether to the temptations of this world.

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

Guard their souls, for Satan is out to destroy them.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” (1 Peter 5:8)

I have no inside track to know when Jesus will return, and neither does anyone else. However, He has made it clear that He will provide signs, and that He has. He has made it clear that we should be constantly alert and be ready. Are you ready?
