“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

LGBT to be or not to be, that is the question

“And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?” (1Pet. 3:13).

“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” (Gal. 5:19-23).

There is no law against love, and there is no law against righteousness. Love works peace in the land. Righteousness works peace in the land. How can there be legislation against peace in the land? But, what happens when Satan convinces people to abrogate God’s Law? Then, there is no love in the land because all the commandments hang upon love. And love, the core of the government of God, and the cause of His peace, can no longer remain in the land because the commandments of love no longer remain in the hearts of the citizens. This isn’t rocket science or deep political science. It’s common sense. It isn’t a principle that is beyond our galaxy; it is in our mouth and intellect. Love, joy, peace are things that the littlest children understand and desire. But, we get more foolish and harder in heart as we get older.

Yesterday I was listening to YouTube as I painted a room. Pastor and attorney Ed Reid was speaking on the signs of the end. International signs, monetary signs, social signs, etc. The video must have been a year old because one of the signs he mentioned was the U.S. Supreme Court passage of same-sex marriage nationwide on Jun 26, 2015. As surprising as that decision was, what would Mr. Reid say today about the White House forcing transgender bathrooms on every public facility in America? Even the senator in charge of the military has reversed his mind against LGBT. The love-bath will result in a weakened military and the failure of “good order and discipline”.

I’m not trying to politick here against Republicans or against Democrats, nor do I desire to stand up piously and pompously preach jeremiads. Nevertheless, I am lining up behind Ed Reid with the signs of the times—the end of America, my beloved Protestant America. The country that I was born in, and that all my life I have sworn allegiance to, has turned on me and on many millions more than me. Transgender bathrooms will not free us, but enslave us. Pornography has already corrupted our Protestant hearts. Immodesty is everywhere, even hiding covertly behind respectable “art” and “advertising” and “real life” theater. “[Our] defence is departed from [us], and the LORD is [not] with us.” (Num. 14:9).

Our nation’s foundation compromised, now all that Protestant America needed to collapse the old Constitution and the moral fabric of our Law-based nation was a requirement from our commander-in-chief, our chief executive; all we needed was a decree from the highest power of our state who works for our good to ram our foundation with a dictatorial rule that opens restroom doors to pornography-ridden hearts, pernicious imaginations for bathroom rape and other mischief. What an insult to the American people from their highest voted official! Is this a civilized nation, or a nation on the brink of mass chaos and massive civil strife?

Is it opening the door to pervasive perversity? Will not minority transgender privileges put over the straight majority corrupt the last holy threads of this nation that was once blessed of Jehovah, and turn it into “the degenerate plant of a strange vine”?

“Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that My fear is not in thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts. For of old time I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands; and thou saidst, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green tree thou wanderest, playing the harlot. Yet I had planted thee a noble vine, wholly a right seed: how then art thou turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto Me?” (Jer. 2:19-21)?

Prior to entering Canaan, the children of Israel were given a high standard to follow. And if they chose to depart from that high standard and to do like the Canaanites, then the Lord would vomit them out of His land just as He had vomited out the Canaanites. And this is Jehovah’s answer to the freedom from Protestantism’s transgender agenda:

“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the LORD your God.
After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.
Ye shall do My judgments, and keep Mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God.
Ye shall therefore keep My statutes, and My judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.
None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD.
The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
The nakedness of thy father’s wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father’s nakedness.
The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover.
The nakedness of thy son’s daughter, or of thy daughter’s daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is thine own nakedness.
The nakedness of thy father’s wife’s daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s sister: she is thy father’s near kinswoman.
Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister: for she is thy mother’s near kinswoman.
Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt.
Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter in law: she is thy son’s wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother’s wife: it is thy brother’s nakedness.
Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shalt thou take her son’s daughter, or her daughter’s daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness.
Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time.
Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness.
Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour’s wife, to defile thyself with her.
And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.
Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
Ye shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
(For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)
That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.
For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
Therefore shall ye keep Mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.” (Leviticus 18).

Transgender restrooms, and the filth of Playboy and other like media, all of which have broken out like a public plague in America, will bring this once favored nation to be despised by heaven and earth. No doubt this apostate Reformation nation is the whore featured in Revelation 17 and the ten horn powers are the other nations of this world. “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil His will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” (Rev. 17:16-18).

But, regardless of what the sole adversary of the Reformation does against Protestantism, it cannot destroy Protestantism’s truth. All that our one earthly enemy can do is to prove the Reformation’s mission, which was that to receive His power to obey His laws and to obey the laws of God are the way to truth and life, and that to disregard Reformation Protestantism and its Bible is self-destructive. The laws of nature are pre-programmed to uplift the moral and spiritual Law of Jehovah. The natural laws are no respecter of persons. They are all as consistent and as rewarding as gravity. Jump off a building and you will have a sudden and permanent stop at the bottom. Jump out of the life of obedience into hedonistic oblivion, and disease and curses of every category will plague you forever.

“We can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.” (2Cor. 13:8).

Just ask any STD recipient or substance abuser. Broken laws of God plague you forever, even for ever and ever. So, with all His heart our God pleads with us to not go there.

“See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;
I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” (Deut. 30:15-19).

Soon this once strong nation will be weakened by every imaginable vice and self-indulgence. We will repeat history—modern history. America will repeat a history that is not so old that it should have evaded us today. The Weimar Republic of Germany in the 1920’s. Was not the Weimar Republic identical to what is happening in all the former countries of Protestantism, throughout Europe and in America. Identical! And what was the result of Weimar Germany? What power swept into the corrupted, partying country? Totalitarian dictatorship over Protestant Europe and the revenge from their religious enemy of the Dark Ages, Lutheran Germany!

“Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2Thess. 2:9-12).

And Protestant America was also the target of the old enemy from the Dark Ages. We would be the next victims of Vatican vengeance. And now America too is ready to tip over and smash into a jillion smoldering shards. The Jesuits have planned our demolition as they did the World Trade Center.

“Behold, the name of the LORD cometh from far, burning with His anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: His lips are full of indignation, and His tongue as a devouring fire: and His breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err…. For Tophet is ordained of old; yea, for the King it is prepared; He hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.” (Isa. 30:27,28,30).

“The LORD hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.” (Isa. 19:14).

The words of Jeremiah are very fitting us:

“Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; and the people shall labour in vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall be weary.…
So Jeremiah wrote in a book all the evil that should come upon Babylon, even all these words that are written against Babylon.
And Jeremiah said to Seraiah, When thou comest to Babylon, and shalt see, and shalt read all these words;
Then shalt thou say, O LORD, thou hast spoken against this place, to cut it off, that none shall remain in it, neither man nor beast, but that it shall be desolate for ever.
And it shall be, when thou hast made an end of reading this book, that thou shalt bind a stone to it, and cast it into the midst of Euphrates:
And thou shalt say, Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not rise from the evil that I will bring upon her: and they shall be weary.” (Jer. 51:58-64).

“And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” (Rev. 14:11).
But, there will be a few Protestants left over.

“And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Rev. 12:15-17).

These wise virgins learned to dwell in the Spirit of God’s love through Christ, “the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus” (Rom. 8:2). They will walk in communion with Jesus for obedience to God instead of in empty, dead self-will from their own natural resources, “the law of sin and death.” (Rom. 8:2). The wise received victory over self, and over the devil and his temptation to sin. They “are without fault before the throne of God” (Rev. 14:5) because they received obedience to all the commandments of God. When the great whore, Babylon the Great fell, the wise virgins feared God and gave Him glory. “And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.” (Rev. 11:13).

“Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One of Israel. And the LORD shall cause His glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of His arm, with the indignation of His anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. For through the voice of the LORD shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod. And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the LORD shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking will He fight with it.” (Isa. 30:29-32).

“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” (Rev. 14:12).
