When Rainbow Becomes Rambo
Now that the Supreme Court majority has blessed a neopagan ritual called same sex “marriage,” how should Christians proceed?
Well, the rainbow radicals have revealed their true colors and the battle is far from over. In fact, now the real battle begins.
Let’s just be clear: Jesus Christ is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Yes, Satan prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8) but that lion is a kitten compared to Christ, the Lion of Judah ( Rev. 5:5).
We have already won. So let’s define “won.”
God is in control, yet He is also in control right now in Iraq and Syria as Christians are kidnapped, raped, crucified and beheaded. He’s in control in Nigeria where Christian schoolgirls were kidnapped and in South Sudan where two Christian pastors are unjustly imprisoned. We must pray for these people fervently, for rescue if possible and for them to maintain their faith in the face of such disaster.
So why would we Americans who have been so graciously blessed by God for over two centuries think we are any different? Have you thought about job loss? Jail? Just as an exercise, ask yourself what you are willing to risk to stand for God’s truth about homosexuality. I have heard people say, “This is not a hill I’m willing to die on.” Then what is?
God’s ways are not our ways, and if we think we can just continue in comfort and complacency, our Creator God may have just flashed a red light of warning: some things are about to change. Job security? Childhood innocence? Liberty for churches? Previous freedoms have time stamps on them, and the clock is ticking.
Outrage is not unChristian but perfectly appropriate. As Dr. Robert Gagnon just wrote, we are only here because the church has been “insufficiently alarmed” by homosexual activism. This has been coming for years and it is not going to be pretty. But we can deal with it, one way or another.
When we saw our corrupt president and his administration light up the White House in rainbow colors on the evening of June 26, we should tremble for America, for our children, because even though God meant the rainbow for good as a sign of hope in Genesis 9, these rainbow colors mark territory for evil intentions. They serve as the standard for a declaration of war– yet make no mistake, it’s a war Obama will lose.
That’s because it’s a war against the Lord and His anointed (Jesus). Evil is still ugly and destructive, even when painted with a spectrum designed by the Almighty.
Psalm 2 describes this exactly:
Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
“Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
“Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.” (NKJV)
Jesus reigns! Hallelujah!
And so the Lord’s truth will prevail. But it may not be soon and there may be casualties. So, do we want to keep the casualties to a minimum? Do we want to try to ensure they are not our precious children and grandchildren? Then let’s roll up our sleeves.
The NY Times within a day after the SCOTUS decision laid out the next “LGBT” battle plan — to make homosexual behavior and gender confusion “civil rights” under “non-discrimination” laws. Does this anger you as much as it does me?
Sodomy is NOT a civil right!
We must not let more of these bills pass, because these laws at the state and local level have provided the weapons to close bakeries, enact hefty fines, and propel unwarranted lawsuits against florists and photographers.
So what do we do?
Call your REPUBLICAN representatives in state and federal office and tell them you will not support them in the next election if they vote for any such law. Call your state representatives if you live in a state where such a law has not yet passed, and call every U.S congressional representative. Call them if there is a specific bill pending or even if there’s not. They will get the message.
“ENDA” non-discrimination bills are not “compassionate” policies. They are built on phony claims of trumped-up victimology where actual stats on job losses are never enumerated, anecdotes abound and ridiculous fables are unveiled.
The proponents imagine rampaging religious zealotry. “Christian EMTs won’t treat transgender patients!!” is one favored talking point, which has occurred exactly nowhere and won’t because Christians are rescuers, not damagers like our opponents often are. We don’t sign on to sin, but we always support life.
“ENDA” laws are unneeded instruments of spite. And First Amendment rights will be ignored under such policies, even where they contain a “religion” clause. That terminology is only included for show as a cover to buy off the uninformed or liberal GOP representative.
And forget the Democrats. They will all vote for this nonsense.
In case we haven’t noticed, the “LGBT” tyrants are in charge now– or so they think. They will tell us what we are allowed to believe, if we let them. We must not let them.
Case in point: already there are serious calls for stripping churches of tax exempt status. Religious liberty is in trouble because these militants have already shown no mercy and they have lots of judicial support. No dissent will be allowed because they are deeply insecure about the validity of this decision, about their chosen behaviors and about their futures built on quicksand. (The Lord can still rescue any who are willing, by the way.)
They should be nervous. These foolish advocates and their buddies in the judiciary have caused a huge rift in our constitutional republic. Faith in our system of government? Now seriously eroded, thanks to rainbow rebels.
But God sees and will enact justice in His time. Barack Obama said on June 26, responding to the decision, that it was a day when “justice arrives like a thunderbolt.” Does he know what he is saying?
And Who is listening?
The Lord has not forgotten His followers. He will strengthen our hands if we stand our ground and truly serve Him.
Rainbow is not Rambo but a paper tiger. God does not fear him and neither should we.
