The Final Say on Unholy Marriages

  • Same Sex Marriage God’s Word:

    "Not in My World"

     

              Let is understand that God has the final say on the legitimacy of same sex marriages performed in churches. Knowing this as truth in our knowledge of God, we must understand that any minister performing such marriages has broken the commandments concerning the subject of marriage. Marriage is granted by God for the expressed benefit of man and women. No other marriage is excepted before God. Nor can it be performed in a true church of God, to be considered marriage before God as he has Commanded in His Laws.

              As it is written in man’s law no one can come into a court and seek restitution without having what is called clean hands. Since it is been shown in Leviticus 18:22-24; Leviticus 20:13. And again in 1 Cor. 6.9.

     

    King James Bible 1611 Version

     

    Lev. 18.22 Thou shalt not lie with mankinde as with womankinde: it is abomination.

    Lev. 20.13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lyeth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shalbe upon them.

     

    1 Cor. 6.9 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,

    Verses taken from the Orthodox KJV Bible

     

    Levi. 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman it is an abomination. 23 Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is a perversion. 24 Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these ways of life the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before your face. 25 For the land is defiled, and on its account I am repaying them for their wrongdoing. Thus the land became vexed with those dwelling upon it. 26 You shall therefore keep all my ordinances and My judgements and shall not do any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any resident alien who dwells among you 27 (for the men of the land before you did all these abominations, and thus the land was defiled) 28 that the land not be vexed with you in your defilement of it, as it was vexed with the nations before you. 29 For whosoever does any of these abominations, these souls shall be utterly destroyed from among their people. 30 Therefore, you shall keep My ordinances, so as not to do any of these abominable customs which were committed before you, and not to defile yourselves by them: for I am the Lord your God.’”

     

    Levi. 20:13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both have committed an abomination. They shall be put to death, for they are guilty.

     

    1 Cor. 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,a nor sodomites,…  a 6.9 That is, catamites

    … 6.9,10 As to those who will not inherit the kingdom of God, see, 1 Cor. 15:50; Gal. 5:19-21; Eph. 5:5; Rev. 21:7, 8; 22:15.

    Verses from the Septuagint

     

    Lev. 18:22  And thou shalt not lie with a man as with a woman, for it is an abomination.

     

    Lev. 20:13  And whosoever shall lie with a man as with a woman, they have both wrought abomination; let them die the death, they are guilty.

     

    All these Commandments hold true today as they did since Moses when they were transcribed into Holy Scripture. Guidelines of moral behavior expected of man from our Father God and reaffirmed by Jesus Christ in his Gospel.

              We can see same sex marriages are forbidden before God and considered an abomination in His eyes. What legal precedence can be given to claim these marriages legitimate in God’s Law’s? The simple answer is none what so ever.

              God spoke to his chosen through Moses, laying down the Laws and Commandments of behavior expected of his children. God also said the land given to the chosen was defiled by the previous owners. By them in the practice of the very same behavior He had warned Moses of, and God had taken the land from them and turned it over to his chosen. Because the others had broken the very same Law’s of Commandment spoken of too Moses.

              Are we to believe, that we will not be judged and have judgement past on us for the same failure to live by God’s Laws and Commandments? I’m here to tell you we have an obligation to adhere to God’s Laws and Commandments, as written in Scripture. Or we to can suffer the lose of our land to the disrespect of God’s Laws and Commandments.

              I cannot say by any stretch of the word I have been enlightened by or spoken to by my Father and Creator. But as it has been said in past times Wisdom of Scripture and understanding speaks volumes of what can and could happen for lack of understanding and ignorance of the Word.

              Those who have performed such marriages have lost the ability to claim to be clergy in the sense of Christian and Jewish Laws, and the marriages they performed under the belief of them being legitimate have been judged by God as illegitimate in His eyes and by God’s Law’s.

              Understand they have become sinful misuse of the Law of marriage. All illegitimate marriages performed are null and void of God’s approval from the first attempt. What God will do to those who have performed such marriages is unknown at this point. God will appoint judgement at their appointed time.

              I have come to a disappointing conclusion over these findings. I posted the blog concerning this subject and have had few responses to it of a positive nature. And a less than discerning viewing of the blog. Has the ministry of God’s word become polluted by darkness to the point of a total lose? I would have expected a few true Ministers of good standing to respond with support of this finding and opinion of Same Sex Marriages.

              Has the ministry of the Gospel fallen into total darkness? I cannot believe that not any single man of God would not find the strength of faith to stand upon the Word, Law’s and Commandments of God and Jesus Christ’s Gospel. To show support for the truth of the Scriptures written as Commandments and Laws for man to find salvation.

              I come not to judge man or condemn, but to bring light into the world, as Jesus commanded us to do, for the salvation of the world. Jesus and spoke of men turning against one another. And would find troubles in seeing the light. For it is evil that give pleasure of flesh and greed of the world. Jesus knew how weak men can be lost in worldly pleasures. Jesus knew it would be difficult but he never said it could not or be done. Let us find strength in Jesus Christ and his Gospel of love and mercy. Stand up and be counted as one of the worthy to receive his blessings. For he who will give his strength in voice of support shall receive blessings greater than those of this world. Feel the joy and bring it into your heart through your voice of commitment in the Gospel. Let me hear your voice of wisdom of understanding God’s word.

               Know that all can be accomplished with the strength and understanding of knowledge. Our Father sent the Holy Ghost to us bringing comfort and strength from Our Father and his Son Jesus. To let us know without any doubt He is in us and we are in him, and all that we need to do can and will be done in his name. Find forgiveness, love, mercy and blessings for those lost in sin who can and will be saved with belief and perseverance of faith.

              All I can say is I stand by my findings in the scripture and my opinion will stand true and pure in Jesus’s Gospel. I pray for those who have fallen from the true commandments and laws of our Father and his beloved Son, concerning same sex marriages. I pray in time Jesus will touch others with the truth and give them strength to stand up in respect of His teachings.

                                                                                                              “Amen”
