Homosexual marriage is now the law of the land, here in the United States of America. We are seeing the “Gay Pride” flag waving everywhere and even the White, the symbol of our leader, is boasting the colors proudly. Over 26 million people on Facebook have put a filter over their profile picture of the Gay Pride Rainbow showing that they support this new law. We literally see the
In the Bible there is a principle called the law of first mention. Essentially, there is always something significant about the first time something appears in the Bible. Whether it is the serpent () who first tempts man, or the first murder where Cain kills his brother, or the first mention of the rainbow after the flood that destroyed the entire earth. We read in Genesis that destroyed the world because their thoughts were only evil continually – at least that is the general reason we hear from pulpits galore. However, there is an important factor that we must not forget: “there were Nephilim on the earth in those days and also afterwards when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men. Many want to gloss over this important point but the writers of the New Testament knew it was incredibly and therefore they commented on it.
Both Peter and Jude speak specifically that thecame down and had relations with women and even men! Homosexuality is only the beginning.
For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but threw them into hell [tartarosas ταρταρώσας] and locked them up in chains in utter darkness, to be kept until the judgment, and if he did not spare the ancient world, but did protect Noah, a herald of righteousness, along with seven others, when God brought a flood on an ungodly world, and if he turned to ashes the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah when he condemned them to destruction, having appointed them to serve as an example to future generations of the ungodly, and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man in anguish over the debauched lifestyle of lawless men…especially those who indulge their fleshly desires… (2 Peter 2:4-9 NET).
Peter provides evidence of just what landed them in everlasting chains so prematurely by his statement in verse ten: “especially those who indulge their fleshly desires [sarkos en epitumia σαρκος εν επιθυμια μιασμου] and who despise authority.” The Greek term employed by Peter (epithumia επιθυμια) is defined by Thayer’s Greek Lexicon as a great longing for something, often of things forbidden. This word coupled with “flesh” (sarkos σαρκος) and “defilement”[i] (miasmou μιασμου) makes a powerful statement – the unrighteous, which includes (fallen) angels acted upon a forbidden longing to defile or stain their flesh.
Jude also says the men of Sodom, Gomorrah and the surrounding cities committed an act like the angels (like these).
You also know that the angels [angelous αγγελους] who did not keep within their proper domain [arkhen αρχην] but abandoned their own place of residence [oiketerion οικητηριον], he has kept in eternal chains in utter darkness, locked up for the judgment of the great Day. So also [hos ως] Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighboring towns, since they indulged in sexual immorality [ekporeusasai εκπορνευσασαι] and pursued unnatural desire [sarkos heteras σαρκος ετερας] in a way similar to these [toutois τουτοις] angels… (Jude 1:6-7 NET).
Hence, the Sodomites desire to “know” (have sex) with Lot’s visitors is the same thing that the fallen angels did in the days of Noah which was the principle reason that God sent the flood. God established the rainbow as a symbol that he would never again destroy the world in the same manner – thought not that the world would never be destroyed again. The next time he destroys it will be by fire – principally the fire associated with Yeshua’s return.
Therefore, the rise and current prominence of the Gay Pride flag may in fact be a warning of what is coming – we are returning to the days of Noah when the Nephilim were in the land (See Corrupting the Image) and with it comes judgment – only this time, it will be by fire.
Even so, Maranatha Yeshua!
