When asked about marriage, Jesus cited this verse, adding a solemn warning: "What God has joined together, let no one put asunder." Let no one alter or undo God's marriage design.

Homosexuality is not the unpardonable sin, but it does carry consequences, because it changes the truth of God into a lie, defiles the body, and defiles the land. Scripture states that practicing homosexuals are not going to Heaven, but homosexuals can, and have, and will continue to change by the power of the Gospel of Christ.

Praise the Lord I'm sure not thanking you for joining us today on the sound of faith because we know Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God you were about to hear, and penetrating word from Scripture addressing the volatile issue of same-sex marriage. Following the Supreme Court's ruling to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states of America in the name of equality for all, but they have essentially redefined marriage and institution created by God, not man because the Supreme Court is not the supreme being. I have the message of the Lord wants me to deliver and I believe it's not only for you that are here but for others who will hear it. Amen. Friday night before going to bed. I was watching the news and I cringed to see the White House lit up in rainbow colors, which as you know, are the colors of the LB GT community, the White House dominance knows that God the dominance knows that the Bible and Bible believing Christians like you and me. Amen. The president said about the ruling, the Supreme Court ruling on Friday to legitimize gay marriage throughout the whole nation all 50 states. Regardless of what any states, voters may have voted he said today we can say in no uncertain terms that we have made our union a little more perfect now back in 2008 in the election season, God gave me a very strong word which I delivered about abortion and homosexuality and how imperative it was that we would elect Congressman center tours and a Pres. and Cabinet, what he would put his own cabinet in Butler going to be like-minded.

That would be pro-life and that would be pro-marriage at the time we had the dome act defense of marriage act that simply stated, this marriage is between a man and a woman that's all that was to it. But it has been struck down.

Since then, and then the floodgates opened up. Amen.

I said that it was important who we elected as president, not only because of having a pro-life new and up in a pro-marriage view but also it is the president who elects the federal judges, and it is the president who appoints the federal judges to the Supreme Court at the time we had several ancient judges who were in very poor health, indicating it wouldn't be very long before there would be opening and the president would have to fill those openings and so I said you know it's so important to understand a lot of people don't give it a thought until something like this occurs with the Supreme Court they don't think about how those judges get their are not elected, like our senators and our congressmen and our president there not elected or appointed and not only that folks there appointed for life. I don't know if I agree with that. There appointed for life.

They can be in there. Depending on how old they are some of the judges just putting a fairly young so they can be in their 20 or 30 years with no problem. There is a reason why they change the law that a president can only serve two terms, and so I said it was very important and sure enough we had openings on the bench there in the Supreme Court and they did get filled with liberal judges who are not for pro-life and who are not for marriage.

Amen. And so now we see seven years later how quickly how quickly everything has changed but let me say this, the Supreme Court is not the supreme being. Last week I opened and open up with the same verse today.

I had no idea what would ensue during the week, but I'm going to use the same verse is my opening text Psalm 11 three if the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do. On Friday, June 26, 2015, the final stone in the foundation of marriage in America was removed by the Supreme Court. This is not about equality for all people. This is the redefining of marriage which authority is not governed by human law. The Supreme Court is not the supreme being.

Marriage is not an institution that was created by man was… IDR created the blueprint for marriage and he is on record in his word that marriage is between one man and one woman.

When he first created man, a woman from man. He personally brought the woman to the man God never brings a man to a man and a woman to a woman so the record so we can go on record. Let's turn to Genesis and let's read a couple verses, let's read Genesis 2 and starting with verse 21 and the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept and he took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh instead thereof and the rib, which the Lord God is taken from man, made he a woman and brought her onto the man and Adam said, this is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh, she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man. Verse 24 is the most important verse that is repeated twice in the New Testament therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh not want to point out that at the time didn't have a father and a mother. So why would God say this because he was late as the foundation for all time to come.

The governing principle that marriage is between a husband and a wife, a man and a woman are to cleave to one another. Now there are proponents of same-sex marriage, that are quick to argue that Jesus never addressed the subject of homosexuality, in his teaching, but Jesus did, because he ratified Genesis 224.

Hold Your Pl. in Genesis and turn to Matthew 19 in Matthew 19 he was having a discussion with the Pharisees and in verse three it says the Pharisees came also onto him, tempting him. Another words they were setting in up to try to snare them in his words which they were fond of doing and saying onto him, asking him is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause, is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason, and they were going to try to snare him. And if you read the whole discussion you see that they threw up what Moses allowed them and you know they were trying to use Moses words against Jesus because if they could succeed in getting Jesus in some way to disagree with Moses all well they would happen where they wanted him. But Jesus skipped over Moses and went back to the beginning to the blueprint to God to the creator and we read that says in verse four and he answered and said unto them, had you not read that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, for this cause shall a man leave father and mother and shall cleave to his wife and they twain relate to, shall be one flesh, and he didn't stop there. He attached a severe warning and said in verse six, where more, they are no more to but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder. He was punctuating this with the strong warning do not undo marriage the way God has designed it to be.

Amen. So yes, in this see that he did address homosexuality because he made it clear that heterosexual marriage that God created in the beginning and do not let anyone divide that reported asunder or negated or voided knowledge. Amen. Now, apostle Paul quoted the same verse don't turn there, but in Ephesians 531.

He quoted the very same verse going back to Genesis for this cause shall a man leave father and mother shall cleave to his wife and they too shall be one flesh. So according to God's own prescription in the mouth of two or three witnesses that every word be established. We have what God said in the beginning when he created adamantly and because he's the creator and he's the designer then what he says is the principle that governs marriage for all time. Amen. Clearly it is God's intention for a husband to cling to his wife, not his significant other in this one Genesis 224 Matthew 19 six Ephesians 531. In this one verse is the mandate of the two of two of the pillars of man's creation. This one verse covers that marriage is to be a marriage of monogamy and heterosexuality. How many see it this one verse clearly shows it's God's intention for monogamy and heterosexuality. Now let's go back to Genesis and let's look at verse chapter 1 verses 27 and 28 and so God created man in his own image in the image of God created he him, male and female created he them. This is an important point I won't go on, you know elaborate on it here, but we are all created in the image of God and God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and he went on to say, and subdue it or have been pinioned over and over the fowl of the air the heavens over every living thing that moves upon the earth.

And so God created man and woman in his own image and he blessed them in the very first blessing. He gave that was be fruitful and multiply" there is no way that two women or two men can multiply and pass on their unique genetic material, it's impossible. It will always be impossible. They have to bring in 1/3 party of the opposite sex. If they're going to use the eggnog if it's two women then they're going to use one of their eggs. They gotta bring a man in if it's two men together in the gutter using one of their sperm they got to bring in a woman. But when they do, which by the way negates to shall be one flesh is now.

We got three but even if we overlook that the child that is born is not the fruit of the two men are the two women unique genetic material is not passed on because one of them is missing on the amen so there's no way that such a union can ever produce a godly seed it can only serve to perpetuate perverse and unnatural lust which the Bible condemns. And God is not reticence he's not reticent in his abhorrence of homosexuality and you don't have to try to read between the lines or manipulate the Scriptures to see that he has denounced homosexuality as an abomination. He clearly said in Leviticus 1822.

You shall not lie with the man as with the woman. It is an abomination. What is an abomination that is something to be a port to be viewed as loathsome, detestable and repugnant to God. Not only does God not approve of same-sex marriage is against it. Leviticus 2013 if a man also lies with a man as he lies with a woman, both had committed an abomination and they shall be put to death. Now proponents of homosexuality will jump on this day love to jump on the fact of the Old Testament death penalty as being radical now.

There is no genuine Christian who would vacate the death penalty for homosexuals. I expected to hear more than one amen on that non-Christian Christian what McKay the death penalty for homosexuality anymore that we went three same Scriptures teaches the death penalty, the Old Testament, homosexuality, teacher for adultery but we will indicate that way when the death penalty, keyword, sin is worthy of the death penalty. According to the Bible all sin, the soul extended.

It shall not, somewhere, advocate the death penalty.

Why because God sent his son Jesus Christ to die on the cross in our place to pay the penalty. He did not send the death penalty for sin, all sin, but instead he sent his people were holding sinless son to be our substitute for Romans 623 says for the wages of sin is Old Testament brought the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. God didn't resend the death penalty. He didn't resend the 10 Commandments he didn't resend any of these laws on morality, and in righteousness God judges. But in his mercy he laid the sin and the penalty upon his son. Amen. Does God hate the sin of homosexuality. Yes, God hates all sin, because he knows what it does. He knows the destruction and the eternal damnation.

It will bring.

If a person stays in their sin.

Amen.

All have sinned.

The Bible says in Romans 323 for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God need to make that clear.

We have to make that distinction. God hates homosexuality, but he doesn't hate homosexuals, and neither should you. If you're a real Christian. Amen.

It is those people who call themselves Christians that use this kind of terminology that adds fuel to the fire amen and gets people off-track of the word of God and gets conviction off of them about the word of God because they say they're just a bunch of haters and all that does is allow Satan to remove the conviction off of them and dismiss us as radical haters, folks, homosexuality is not the unpardonable sin. I know there's some people try to make it, but it's not. Amen. Having said that, I will say this, that following the commandment and omitted. Leviticus 1822. There's a startling command companions consequence efforts is that you're not, you should not live with a man as you would with a woman. It says in verse 24 file not yourselves in any of these things for in all these things the nations are defiled, which I cast out before you, and listen to this in verse 25 and the land is defiled. Therefore, I do visit the iniquity there of. Upon it, and the land itself vomits out her inhabitants know what is being said here God is saying that the practice of homosexuality brings defilement to those who engage in it amen is that you define yourself, but we also see that when this becomes why in the nation when sin becomes prevalent in a nation says that the very very nation is defiled in his side and he will visit it with judgment and you will certainly get backlash on that.

But Scripture says in Proverbs 1434 righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Amen. And folks, there are two sins that defiled the land itself. There are two things that actually defiled the land murder and homosexuality. I don't have time to go there and and get the Scriptures in all, but there are many verses that talk about that the land is blooding.

The land is bloodied with violence. The first murder cane killed Abel, and God said the blood of your brother cries out from the ground. Amen.

When God was going to destroy.the city of Nineveh, which was a huge city, probably 600,000 people every bit as big as Baltimore. Maybe bigger, and God was going to destroy the city and he was sent to Jonah they are to warn them that it's a bloodied city because they were filled with violence. Amen. So these two sins actually defiled the land. Now the New Testament is not ambiguous when it comes to homosexuality and most homosexual proponents will try to stay on these verses in Leviticus and keep you bound up in then and they'll try to get you off track and say well it also says you can't eat bacon well.

It also says you can't eat crabs well. It also says… You can't get tattoos and I'm not disputing any of that. That's what it says but they'll try to get you all bound up in that to make you think that is ridiculous and foolish and crazy to that you will say the part about homosexuality is crazy to and they don't have enough knowledge of the Bible to know the covenant that God made with Israel.

They don't have enough knowledge to know that it was a covenant he made with them and that later on way down centuries down the line we would your out and find out why God put these prohibitions when certain things they did know about diseases and germs and etc. etc. they didn't know about that then. But God did. Amen.

You know ideally they'll throw it up and say yes and a woman. When she had her time a month and she's unclean. And boy, you'll get all the women round up all wow they did know about sanitary laws in such so you've got to not get hung up there. Amen. Because the New Testament is not silent on the matter. Amen.

In the New Testament it again. You don't have to manipulate the language to read between the lines to try to get to say what you wanted to say it is clear it is very clear that no homosexuality dishonors the body. It goes beyond the sexual act because God sees it as a lie that corrupts his creation and when the Lord showed this to me several years ago I was really in all maybe other ministers are preaching and I'm not saying that they're not. I'm just telling you I never heard them so turn with me. In Romans the first chapter and most of your familiar with these verses, but we are putting everything on record. Amen. Romans one verse 22 professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the on incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man enter birds and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the last of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshiped and served the creature more than the creator who is blessed forever. Amen. Let's stop for a moment and look at this. The term uncleanness in the Greek means aberrant sex. Another words sex that is unnatural and abnormal sex that is against nature.

It will going to see say is we shall read against God's blueprint of heterosexuality.

So in order to accommodate the sin of homosexuality. They had changed the truth into a lie.

The only way that they can practice homosexuality, and trying to have a clear conscience and what they would consider a clear conscience. In doing so is to change the truth of God into a lie. Amen.

And so that's why homosexuality dishonors the body because it changes the truth of creation, the way God created to be man and woman and it's a lie against God's design as the creator who is blessed forever.

Amen those that I am not and I changed amen.

It's a lie against the creator and the design that he had created, so homosexuals depart from God's design burning in their own lusts and the sexual act is just the fruit of the luster in their hearts. Let's read verse 26 for this cause God gave them up on the vile affections for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another man. Men working that which is unseemly, recorded in deed and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was amen. I hope you're being spiritually starved and socially enlightened to the truth of the homosexual redefinition of marriage because that is exactly what the Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage in all 50 states of America has done, but the Supreme Court is not the supreme being. This is not about equality for all people. Marriage is an institution created by God, not man marriage is God's idea, and he created the blueprint one man and one woman when he created Adam and Eve, he said, for this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and shall cleave unto his wife and they too shall be one flesh, and Jesus Christ ratified it in the New Testament and added the solemn warning what God has joined together let no one put asunder that no one undo God's marriage design. Some claim Jesus did not address homosexuality, but in this verse, which was also cited by apostle Paul.

God laid down two pillars of the foundation for marriage, monogamy and heterosexuality. There is no evidence that God created people to be homosexual, he would not condemn what he created and he does solidly condemn the practice of homosexuality. The Bible is clear and you practice homosexuality and claim to be a Christian. Going to heaven is deceived, but the good news is homosexuals can change and have changed and will continue to change by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Apostle Paul was an eyewitness to this and he rejoiced with them proclaiming you were homosexual, but now you are washed, separated from your sin and righteous in God's sight but the danger for Christians, especially ministers who preach like this is that the homosexual agenda wants to make it a hate crime to speak out against homosexuality. So even if you read Scripture straight from the Bible you could be prosecuted for a hate crime. They've already succeeded in prosecuting Christian bakeries and florist and wedding reception venues who refused to participate in same-sex marriages saints, we must not allow our first amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion to be stripped from our pulpits.
