With much humility and love in my heart for all men, I share this relevant post which discusses same-sex union versus God’s ordained union between male and female. I share the post in the hope that our loving Father’s words on the subject might remind all of His glorious gift of procreation. The post is NOT a rant against individuals who have chosen the same-sex lifestyle. The post is NOT an invitation to be unkind, unmerciful, or to protest against individuals among us who have chosen the same-sex lifestyle. They are, after all, our friends and neighbors whom we love. Since every concept has an opposite and each extreme of the unit reveals the other – the post IS a contrast/comparison of the origins of the Procreative Union vs the Same-sex Union.
The text discusses sexual sin and may not be appropriate for all readers.
From a biblical platform, the Adam/Eve procreative unit is a type of Christ and the Bride…the Church…the Family of God. (Heb 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. Dangerous is the unproductive same-sex replica the adversary is using to deceive participants away from God’s earthly and heavenly plan for man. ( Rom 1: 26 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: 27 And 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 recompense of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.’)
The Song of Solomon is a beautiful glimpse into the God ordained love relationship between a man and his bride. It expresses Christ’s love for the Bride and the high and honorable state of the intimate relationship within marriage. While the high and exalted agape love from God in our heart loves the unlovely and loves neighbor as self, we are aware of the low and dishonorable deception that has raised its head against the honorable estate of marriage and defiles the marriage bed. The same-sex deception attempts to void God’s most beautiful relationship….the Adam and Eve procreative partnership….and replace it with a fruitless replica. Not only does Satan want to destroy God’s holy institution of marriage and family, but he desires to replace it with his own reprobate evil. And most evil of all is found in an act that would defile the portion of flesh used by God to both perpetuate human kind and to represent His covenant with man through circumcision….Israel…the Church. Acts 7:8 And he gave him the covenant of circumcision: and so Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat the twelve patriarchs.‘
God’s use of the natural to show the spiritual begins with the Adam and Eve union with Adam as a type of Christ who became sin to redeem his bride. Ro 5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.)
God’s First Family: Ge 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Ge 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Matt 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. Ge 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
The very core of man’s life on earth is his procreative propensity….his ability to reproduce…to perpetuate the species upon the earth. Designed by God, it is a type of Christ and the Bride whose offspring are the children of God. Ge 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
The Holy Family is the ultimate purpose of God for his children. He desires renewed fellowship with the Adams and Eves like the original loving and personal relationship enjoyed in Eden. (John 17: 22 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.) God continues to
intensely want personal fellowship and relationship like that revealed to Peter. Matt 16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.’ The offspring of intimate relationship with God are called the Children of God…the Church. So, of course, the Destroyer/Uncreator who hates the Family and what it represents….has constructed his own version of family…a same-sex lust relationship that is empty and nonproductive. It is the opposite of God’s procreative and life-giving union between and man and a woman. Not only is the same-sex relationship fruitless…but it can, when finished, destroy both body and soul. (Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 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: 27 And 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 recompense of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
As with all sin man is given ample opportunity to turn from it. But when man insists on embracing its deadly fire…he chances reaching a point of no return. God will not be mocked. Sin when finished is death. Like Sodom and like in the days of Noah, in these contemporary times we find ourselves confronted with the same wickedness. Some mourn and are offended when confronted with such depravation….while others embrace it fully. Yet with each choice a man or woman makes, he or she also chooses the consequences. Matt 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Many today accept the scientific theory which insists that homosexuality is the result of genetic malfunction. If the homosexual is a product of genetic malfunction… then God must be immediately indicted as unjust, unmericiful…and a liar for pouring out wrath on the homosexual men of Sodom and of Gomorrah who attempted to rape the messengers sent from God ( Gen chapter 19). But the following Word reveals God’s purpose for the body of man…and gives evidence about why the Destroyer seeks man’s destruction:
Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
1 cor 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
The enemy of our souls wishes us to believe man’s scientific-theory explanation for homosexuality. He does not wish us to know his degenerate purpose is the destruction of the sanctity of life – the procreative process. The Destroyer/Hater of God not only hates the procreative relationship that reflects the family of God…he hates God. His hatred is matched only by God’s love. Satan’s destructive propensity is matched only by God’s creative propensity. A spiritual war of historic proportions is raging and since only God has power over Satan…we clearly see the carnage. Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. He who wishes to indwell us is Greater than he that is in the world (satan) and is the only Victor.
The homosexual man or woman has succumbed to ‘the most subtle deceiver’ who is the enemy of all creation – the destroyer. In Eden, God empowered Adam and Eve with Free Will – with the power of choice. We are their offspring and heirs. (Matt 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.) All sin is dangerous since ‘sin when finished is death.’ But sin against the body has particular consequence. God’s desire for offspring is accomplished only through spiritual relationship and fellowship by way of the Holy Spirit…and is accomplished in and through the Christian’s physical body. 1 Cor 6:15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. 16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
Yet the loving Father of man continues to seek out the children who are lost so they can enjoy the magnificent things He has prepared for them – the greatest of which is Life. God is faithful in His promise of redemption!!! Matt 7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Too, He is faithful in His promise to those who refuse sonship. Heb 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? Yet the loving and pure heavenly Father continues to seek and to save those that are lost. He continues to desire that none perish….but that all come to repentance.
Rev. 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
