Sodom Rising, Part 18: “The Defeated Church & The Victorious Church!”

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not

inherit the kingdom of God?

Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,

nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind…

shall inherit the kingdom of God. 

And such were some of you:

but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified,

but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus,

and by the Spirit of our God…

What? know ye not that

your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost

which is in you,

which ye have of God,

and ye are not your own? 

For ye are bought with a price:

therefore glorify God in your body,

and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

1st Corinthians 6:10, 11, 19, 20

One popular evangelist has been calling for the Church to accept homosexuality as well as same-gender marriage.

.

Of course, because of his currently popular stance on this issue, this erring Bible teacher has found great acceptance and even praise from the secular world.

“CEASE YE FROM MAN”

Isaiah 2:22

.

And so, the question of the day is, “Just where is this man going wrong?”

.

Oh yes, of course the Bible condemns the sin of Sodom in “going after strange flesh”. (see Jude 1:7) And right here, this man’s false teaching proves to be nothing less than heresy.

.

But this pastor defends his error by saying, “Are some 2,000 year old writings more important than the needs of humans living right now? Are we going to deny these people the right to love another human?”

.

And by this man’s own human reasoning, many churches are beginning to accept homosexuality and even same-gender marriage in their church!

.

.

.

.

.

“BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD WAS UNTO THEM…THAT THEY MIGHT GO…BACKWARD, AND BE BROKEN, AND SNARED, AND TAKEN…”

Isaiah 28:13

.

Well, by his own words, this erring teacher condemns himself, for another very critically important reason.

.

And just what is that critically important reason?

.

Oh yes, by calling the Bible, “some 2,000 year old letters”, this popular Bible teacher reveals his true stance concerning God’s infallible Word of truth: he really doesn’t trust it!

.

.

.

.

.

“(GOD) IS ABLE TO DO EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL THAT WE ASK OR THINK…”

Ephesians 3:20

.

But there is another great error by this false shepherd which is much bigger than just his own ministry. As a matter of fact, this great error can be found in a growing number of churches and denominations.

.

What this poor man does not understand, and what many or perhaps most churches today do not understand, is that Kingdom of Heaven is all about living the victorious life over sin! Christianity is all about overcoming the world, the flesh and the Devil!

.

And these churches who want to capitulate to the currently popular societal dogma concerning sodomy, are defeated, “before they even get out of the gate”, to use an old expression. In other words, instead of encouraging their parishioners to strive for victory over sin, they instead take the attitude that these sins are impossible to conquer!

.

.

.

.

.

“FOR WE ARE WELL ABLE TO OVERCOME IT!”

.

This current-day situation is reminiscent of the true historical account from Numbers 13, in which God’s people lost their courage to go in and take the Promised Land…“And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it (the Promised Land); for we are well able to overcome it.  But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.” Numbers 13:30, 31

.

These current-day teachers who are ready to lie down and accept these sins, are committing the very same sin as those defeated spies who told the Israelites that the giants in the land were too big, too bad, and too strong to ever hope to conquer!

.

And today’s secular world is so forcefully pushing these abominations upon the society, that the Church to a great extent is ready to roll over and accept defeat.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!”

Proverbs 25:25

.

Well, the Good News is that God is ready to bring His people into total victory over sin! Yes, the Church, the true Church-elect is about to “shine forth as the sun”. (Matthew 13:43)

.

And while the apostate portion of the Church is about to go down in utter defeat, God’s true sheep are about to receive God’s great blessing in the sight of the whole on-looking world!

.

And all those who have been lied to concerning these sins of Sodom, are invited to join God’s faithful remnant, as they take the true Promised Land just before us!

ORION GETS THE VICTORY

.

.

.

Now if you will stay up all night, you will see that the tables turn very dramatically for our three warriors.

.

This is because, as night progresses, and this constellation group moves to the west, God has designed this threesome to now be in the opposite circumstance. Now it is Orion and his Horse who are atop the Dragon. Now Orion is about to cut off the Dragon’s head with his two-edged sword, while the Horse is stomping on his tail. And of course, there needs to be no explanation, because this picture tells the whole story. Jesus wins in the end! God’s people are victorious at last! No wonder the Bible calls this story…“The Good News”!
