As this opulent and  hedonistic society falls under the judgment of God, He is just now giving us over to our lusts, as is written… “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:” Romans 1:24

SIGN OF THE END

.

 

Yes, this society has been given over to fleshly sins, among which is the sin of sodomy.

.

Now while every sin is a grievous abomination and offence against a Holy, sin-hating God, the sin of sodomy is right up there along-side the sins of fornication and adultery and bestiality!

.

And just as surely as people are not born with the sin of bestiality, so too, nobody is born with inherent sodomy.

ALL CONCEIVED IN SINhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Baby_yelling.jpg

.

However, having said that, it also must be stated that ALL humanity is born with an inherent love for sin!

.

The Scriptures reveal that… “The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.” Psalm 58:3. 

.

And so, even a young child may display a desire for one or both of these sins, or a host of other sins!

NO GREATER SINNERS THAN WE ARE!

.

Now those who are caught up in the sin of Sodom are no greater sinners than anyone else!

.

We are all on equal footing before a sin-hating God!

.

If eating that forbidden fruit has resulted in all this woe and misery, then we know that all sin, big or small is an abomination to Christ!

.

So we must never mock or scorn those who are caught in that sin, as if they are greater sinners than we are!

.

And it is such sins as the sin of Sodom which, in many cases, causes great shame and embarrassment as  Satan torments them over their sin!

SATAN ENHANCES PLEASURES OF SIN

The Scriptures tell us that… “Lest Satan should get an
advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” Corinthians 2:11. 

.

Yes, we are not ignorant of Satan’s different devices!

.

Everyone instinctively understands that Satan enhances the pleasures of sin.

SODOMY: A SIN OF THE FLESH

Now the Devil is an evil genius far beyond what we humans can comprehend!

.

And for his own purposes, Satan has chosen the modern-day deception of making those given to the sin of Sodom believe that they have some sort of physical deviancy which hopelessly locks them into the sin of Sodom.

GOD HAS GIVEN THE WORLD UP!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Birmingham_Gay_Pride_2011_Moulin_Rouge_Marchers.jpg

.

Three times in Romans, God repeats Himself… “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves…For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections…burned in their lust one toward another…And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind…” Romans 1:24-28

 

.

In other words, the sin of Sodom is a sign that God has finally washed His hands of this world! We are at the end! 

.

Oh yes, God is still saving individuals.

.

But no more is He restraining Mankind’s lust for sin! Judgment is now upon us!

WHAT’S THE ANSWER?

.

So, just what are they to do, who are caught up in this sin?

And also, what are those to do who are trying to save their families from the growing tide of corruption rising all around us?

.

Fortunately, we have a God who loves happy endings! 

.

But God has also provided a way of escape for those who are caught in the snare of the Devil, with such grievous sins!

.

And so, this little series of devotionals will try to present the solution for anyone who desires that way of escape!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

HOW THE GATES RELATE TO ORION & DRAGON

.

This sketch below is when these constellations are in the eastern sky in early winter (However, this constellation group can even be seen as early as July, in the pre-dawn hours). 

Revelation 12 Woman & The Two Gates

.

In the eastern sky, it’s not so easily seen which gate the Revelation 12 Woman will enter. The Wide Gate is made of the two brightest stars of this Wave of Water Constellation. Satan spews out the deadly water of his false worldly ideologies; which many of these ideologies have a form of godliness, but in some way are not in harmony; or perhaps these worldly ideologies add to the Bible, which is strictly forbidden (see Deuteronomy 4:2). 

.  

On the other hand, the Strait Gate (narrow gate) is composed of the two brightest stars of the Orion The Reaper’s sickle. The true Strait Gate represents Jesus, the Word of God.  Listen… “I [Jesus] am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” John 10:9

. . . . .

.

.

.

.

.

THE TWO PATHWAYS

.

“And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.”  Jeremiah 21:8.

two doors- narrow gate & wide gate

.

As this above verse declares, God has set these two pathways before each human. And each human must decide which door he or she will enter. Nobody who has come into this world has been overlooked. Listen… “[Jesus] was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.” John 1:9.

.

Now if this verse is correct (and it is), then Christ is the light that enlightens,   “every man that comes into the world”. Christ is not just the light that enlightens SOME. But He is the light that enlightens EVERY man, woman and child who comes into the world; even those who have lived in remote places, throughout history. Every person has a conscience. And every man must choose who he or she will serve. This is what the Bible calls, “the way of life, and the way of death.”  Jeremiah 21:8.

.

.

. . . .

THE DECEITFULNESS OF SIN…

.

“There is a way which seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Proverbs 14:12.

The Strait Gate is the Narrow Way and the broad way is the Wide Gate

.

It’s often difficult to know whether we are walking on the Narrow Way or whether we are on the Broad Way. This above passage from proverbs brings out this concept… “There is a way which seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”  This confusing world in which we live seems to offer us many opportunities and many material things, which often appear harmless…even good! And of course, we must work among them, and live among them. And so, these things greatly confuse the issue.

.

If only the people of the world behaved totally evil, then there would be no confusion among Christians. But the people of the world have a “form of godliness”. Yet the Bible warns us concerning the people of the world who seem to have a degree of goodness, that…

 

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” 2 Timothy 3:5

.

So this begins to get confusing! Are we supposed to embrace unbelievers, or separate from them? Well, this above verse says we are to turn away from those who have a form of godliness, but deny the power of God.

.

The above sketch to right is an embellished drawing of the Revelation 12 Woman (aka Ursa Major)`veering toward the Orion’s Gate Stars (aka Castor and Pollux). The stars in this sketch can be seen in these positions, simply by laying on your back facing upward, with your feet to the east and your head to the west in winter, when these constellations are beginning to be in the western sky)
