DECEMBER 23, Genesis 18:20; JUDE 1:7
In certain American states, a man is allowed to marry a man, and a woman is allowed to marry a woman. This is a very TERRIBLE sin. It is because of this sin of homosexuality and lesbianism that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by fire and brimstone.
The world today is increasingly leaning towards the god of the world – Satan. Through Satan’s lies,many believe homosexuality is acceptable.Fifty years ago, this would have been unthinkable. But today, what God calls an abomination is celebrated as “an alternative lifestyle”, an individual choice for others. Why are so few people speaking out against homosexuality? Today, even churches agree to homosexuality. Worse than that – there are some so-called pastors who are homosexuals!
Homosexuality is a grievous sin in the eyes of God. The Bible also tells us in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 “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, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” The “kingdom of God” means heaven. “Abusers of themselves with mankind” describe the homosexuals. thus homosexuals if they continue in their sins and do not repent will not enter heaven. Instead if they die in their sins without accepting the Lord Jesus, they will end up in hell and the lake of fire.
Thought: The world today is growing wicked and becoming more accepting to homosexuality.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me to recognize that homosexuality is a grievous sin. Help me to live a pure and holy life which is pleasing before you. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
