Sodom Rising, Part 16: “Gender Confusion & the Devil’s Destruction of Society”

“and the cities of the nations fell:

and great Babylon came in remembrance before God,

to give unto her the cup

of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.”

Revelation 16:19

It is truly fearful and amazing to see how rapidly the Devil is tearing down the very pillars and foundation of society.

.

Yes, the ‘god of this world” is spreading through this society, ever growing like a deadly cancer!

GENDER CONFUSION

.

Just one area of society in which things are being turned upside down is the current war on the https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jazz_Jennings_2016.jpggenders. And equally amazing is how intelligent adult members of this supposedly moral society are such willing accomplices in the destruction of age-old moral standards.

.

You would think that these citizens would realize that they are helping to tear down the very foundation of this society (and deep down, they probably do!)

.

But of course, it is an antichrist world, and the people of this world can only do what their indwelling “satanic lord and master” drives them to do…“and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon (Satan)” Revelation 13:3, 4

.

Yes, this entire world worships Lucifer, “the god of this world”. Therefore they must do his evil bidding, especially since he is, “the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”. Ephesians 2:2

VAIN PLEASURES & AMBITIOUS PURSUITS

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:People_on_Times_Square.jpgBut the responsibility for all this societal mayhem cannot be laid exclusively at the feet of the unsaved masses. No, the Church of Christ must also share in the guilt for this whirlwind of destruction!

.

God’s poor deceived people, to a great degree have been led into seeking after the vain pleasures and ambitious pursuits which abound in this cornucopian super-society.

.

And so, it is small wonder that Sodom is rising up all around us!

A CHURCH LIVING IN WANTON PLEASURE

.

Listen to James…“Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.” James 5:5

.

Here is a stinging condemnation of today’s church-community! Never before in Church history have vast multitudes of God’s people lived in such a hedonistic and opulent society!

.

There are myriad more opportunities to get involved in the countless pleasures and ambitious pursuits now within just about every man’s reach!

.

.

.

.

.

SODOM RISING

.

And so, as a result of OUR apostasy, God has now allowed Satan to bring judgment upon us Christians by raising up Sodom of old, once again. And so, it is no wonder why Satan is destroying the once great institutions of society by what has become known as “gender confusion”. 

.

And in the light of this awful judgment of God, the fearful warning now goes out to Christians, just like it went out long ago to Lot…“Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.” Genesis 19:17 

.

Yes, even as Lot had to flee for his life on the morning of Sodom’s fiery demise, so too, Christians must likewise flee from the wrath to come!

“FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS”

.

The Good News in all this, is that, “there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpghill, rivers and streams of (living) waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.” Isaiah 30:25 (Parenthesis comment by this website editor)

.

Yes, the towers of society (and of the church-world) are now falling all around us. God’s fiery wrath is now falling down upon the world (and the church-world). 

.

But the Christian must not be afraid of making our end-time exodus out of this ball of confusion and destruction! For he is assured the following great and precious promise…“He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: (heavenly) bread shall be given him; his (living) waters shall be sure. Thine eyes shall see the King in His beauty: they shall behold the (Promised) Land that is very far off.” Isaiah 33:16, 17 (parenthetical comments supplied by this website editor)

Sodom Rising, Part 17 “Which Rainbow Will You Cling To?”

To read part 1, click here…Today’s Devotional – August 22nd (Sodom Rising! Part 1)

“I do set my bow in the cloud,

and it shall be for a token of a covenant

between Me and the earth.

And it shall come to pass,

when I bring a cloud over the earth,

that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

And I will remember my covenant,

which is between Me and you

and every living creature of all flesh;

and the waters shall no more

become a flood to destroy all flesh.

And the bow shall be in the cloud;

and I will look upon it,

that I may remember the everlasting covenant

between God and every living creature

of all flesh that is upon the earth.”

Genesis 9:13-16

Back in the early years of what is now referred to as, “The Sexual Revolution”, the first “Gay-Pride rainbow” was created, a rainbow-like symbol having 8 colors (adding the color pink to symbolize “female sexuality”).

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Gay_flag_8.svg(Of course, the number “8” in the Bible (and in nature), symbolizes Satan. Read, for instance, this website’s trilogy of articles on the number, “8”, beginning with, July 26th (Satan’s Number “8”))

THE RAINBOW: CHRIST’S EVERLASTING COVENANT OF SALVATION

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Domenico_Morelli_Noahs_Dankgebet.jpg

.

Now, it’s very interesting that the gay community has chosen the rainbow to be their symbol. As this above passage from Genesis reveals, the Rainbow was given by God as a token of Christ’s “everlasting covenant” of Salvation with every living creature, that God would never again destroy the earth by a flood of waters.

.

“Whereby the world…is reserved unto fire against…ungodly men.”

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpg2nd Peter 3:7

.

Of course, the Bible also reveals that the flood of Noah’s day was and is perhaps a fitting sign and precursor of the coming Day of fiery Judgment…“Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: is reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” 2nd Peter 3:7

.

And so, considering this above prophecy by the God of Peter, it is more than just a little ironic that the gay community would ever want anything to do with the rainbow as their symbol, since it not only symbolizes the ever-lasting covenant of Salvation, but also points forward to, fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.”

http://theheavensdeclare.net/mark-of-the-beast-seal-of-god/“6”: THE NUMBER OF “MAN’S WORKS”

.

And even more interesting, is that Satan (working through unbelievers), has now reduced the gay community’s 8-color rainbow down to only six colors. In the Bible (and in nature), the number, 6, represents the number of man.

.

If we read Revelation chapter 13 we see that the mark of the beast is “the number of a man; and his number is 666”. Revelation 13:18

.

And so, just how does this man-contrived 6-color rainbow relate to 666?

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ten_Commandments_marker_in_front_of_Dixie_County_Courthouse.JPG“6” DAYS OF LABOR

.

Well, if we read the fourth commandment we see the number 6 refers to the 6 days of labor. “Six days shalt thou labor and do all thy work but the seventh day Sabbath of the Lord”.

.

Here is revealed that man is commanded by God to labor 6 days, before he is to rest upon the 7-Day Sabbath. And truth-be-told, the 6 days of labor symbolizes mankind’s futile efforts to enter into God’s spiritual rest, represented by the 7-day Sabbath. In other words, the 6 days of labor which we are to rest from are the labors of sin and unbelief…

.

“Come unto Me, all ye who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest…unto your souls” Matthew 11:28.

.

Here is the true meaning of “six days shall ye labor” spoken of in the 4th Commandment: the labor of sin and unbelief

.

.

http://theheavensdeclare.net/sign-of-the-son-of-man-in-heaven/THE 6TH COMMANDMENT: “THOUGH SHALT NOT KILL”

Exodus 20:13

.

But also, the number 6 also refers to the 6th commandment which deals with murder: “Thou shalt not kill (murder)”. We are all guilty of murdering Jesus, “The Prince of Life”. Acts 3:15

.

And so, the 7-colored rainbow is a symbol of the Everlasting Covenant.

.

And yet, will society then steal that rainbow, the sign of God’s Everlasting Covenant, which He paid for with His own blood and with His own life? And then, make a mockery of that holy sign, misusing it for an emblem of society’s lust for sexual promiscuity?

.

Because, let’s face it, our sins resulted in the murder of the Son of God. And murder is what the 6th Commandment is all about!

666

.

http://theheavensdeclare.net/mark-of-the-beast-seal-of-god/So here are three sixes: The number 6 representing “man”, or, “mankind”.

.

But the number 6 also representing mankind’s “6 days of laboring in sin, without entering into God’s 7th-day Rest” found in the 4th commandment.

.

And lastly, the 6th Commandment concerning murder, which resulted from Mankind’s sins (including the sin of Sodom).

.

So in essence, the 6-colored rainbow is a fitting representation of the mark of the beast: 666: man (Man’s number being “6”), and his godless works (the 6 days of laboring in sin, without entering into God’s 7th-day Rest), which ultimately leads to his own death (murder of Christ as well as self-murder, both of which are brought about by our sins) transgressing the 6th Commandment.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rainbow_Hunt_(24519494184).jpgTHE 7TH DAY REST UNTO YOUR SOULS

.

In contrast to this 666 rainbow, the true rainbow which God created, has seven colors. And of course the Bible speaks of the 7th-day Sabbath. The 7th day is a day of rest…“Come unto Me (Jesus), all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” Matthew 11:28, 29

.

“For the wages of sin is death”

Romans 6:23

.

And so, God’s 7-color rainbow has to do with Sabbath rest, whereas the so-called “gay-pride rainbow” has to do with man and his vain works of which the wages of those vain human works of sin, is death, even as it is written…“For the wages of sin is death” Romans 6:23.

.

And God rewards our “works of the flesh” with the ultimate wages for our sins: death.

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fetus_ellipse.jpg

Like never before, mankind is engaging in murder, which God will render our wages for our dead works on Judgment Day!

.

For instance, just think about the millions of innocent little children ruthlessly slaughtered in the so-called “safe-haven” of their mother’s womb, each year in abortion mills!

.

Do we think that God is just going to simply overlook this heinous atrocity committed against innocent little babies? And many in this land who pronounce themselves to be, “peace-loving, live-and-let-live, pacifists” willingly support, even celebrate abortion, which is nothing short of dirty rotten murder!

WHICH RAINBOW WILL YOU CHOOSE?

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jazz_Jennings_2016.jpgAnd so when you get right down to it, this true 7-color rainbow and this counterfeit 6-color rainbow each represent two entirely different kingdoms: the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Satan.

.

Therefore, the question which needs to be answered is this: “Just which rainbow will you choose? Which rainbow will you cling to?”

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rainbow_over_Sandy%27s_Hill_-_geograph.org.uk_-_376828.jpg.

The 6-color rainbow representing lost and fallen mankind?

.

Or the true 7-color rainbow representing the rest we have in Heaven’s Jesus, “The Prince of Life” and mankind’s only hope for redemption? (see Acts 3:15)

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Gay_flag_8.svg

(And don’t forget that now-defunct 8-color rainbow spoken of earlier, and how it actually represents that false 8-color rainbow’s true creator, “the god of this world”, Satan? (see 2nd Corinthians 4:4))

.

(Of course, the number “8” in the Bible symbolizes Satan, who is the true creator of the Gay-Pride Rainbow. Read, for instance, this website’s trilogy of articles on the number, “8”, beginning with, July 26th (Satan’s Number “8”))

Come Unto Me (Jesus) All Ye Who Are Weary And Heavy Ladened, And I Will Give You Rest…Unto Your Souls…”

Matthew 11:28https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rainbow_Hunt_(24519494184).jpg

.

Well if there’s any good news here (and there is actually a whole lot of Good News here), it is that God’s rainbow is still appearing up there in the sky on a rainy day, and is a type of peace symbol from God, offering Salvation through Jesus Christ, to all mankind! In other words God is inviting all those who are weary and heavy-laden to enter into His everlasting rest.

.

And that is why you need to choose and cling to the true 7-color rainbow over the other two counterfeit rainbows! Because, only God’s 7-color rainbow holds out any actual hope for lost souls!

http://theheavensdeclare.net/sign-of-the-son-of-man-in-heaven/THE RAINBOW A SYMBOL OF CHRIST’S EVERLASTING ATONEMENT

.

And so the gay community has indeed made a significant statement with their man-contrived 6-color rainbow flag.

.

Because God is a lover of souls, and he would love nothing more than for each and every lost soul of the human race turn back to Him and turn and repent from our rebellion against Heaven. This is what the true 7-color rainbow is all about: the “Everlasting Covenant of Salvation” through Christ’s shed blood on the Cross.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rainbow-diagram-ROYGBIV.svgTHE MEANING OF THE 7-COLOR RAINBOW

.

Now one last comment. Just as the gay community has assigned different meanings for each color of their so-called 6-color rainbow, God likewise had long-ago assigned the true meaning to the seven colors of the true rainbow:

.http://theheavensdeclare.net/sign-of-the-son-of-man-in-heaven/

1: The color red symbolizes Christ’s soul-saving blood…

.

2: The orange symbolizes the fiery Holy Spirit of Christ which will live in and abide in all those who turn from their sins to follow Jesus…

.

3: The yellow stands for Christ, “The Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings”. (see Malachi 4:2)

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rainbow-diagram-ROYGBIV.svg.

4: The green stands for the contentment of life which that “Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings” gives to all those who forsake our ungodly ways…

.

5: And the blue stands for the “Prince-of-Peace” (Isaiah 9:6), who longs to give us “the peace which surpasses all understanding” (Philippians 4:7)…

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rainbow-diagram-ROYGBIV.svg6: The indigo stands for wisdom of the Bible (which, btw, has been omitted from the gay-pride, 6-color rainbow)…

.

7: Finally, the purple stands for Christ’s kingly royalty, as the Bible refers to . Yes Jesus was and is royalty: He is “King of Salem, which is, King of peace;” (Hebrews 4:7), and is our Royal High Priest and He has elected his followers to become a generation of royal (kingly) priests. (see 1st Peter 2:9)

And for Heaven’s sake, let’s not forget our little Dorothy of Kansas, who dreamed about being somewhere over the rainbow!

And even though the Wizard of that City of Oz was a complete fraud and an utter disappointment for her, nevertheless, God has for us, the true and everlasting “Emerald City” far away, somewhere over the true 7-color “rainbow of promise” of “life everlasting!”

.

The heavenly promise that awaits all who are willing to renounce the sad and hopeless world and begin the upward Heaven-ward journey to that Heavenly Promised Land.

“God Shall Wipe Away Every Tear”

.

And even though all sinful lifestyles of this world, will only ultimately bring anger, sorrow, hate, unrest, sickness, suffering and ultimately, death, the Heavenly City of Zion which awaits us is a goodly land in which, “God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Revelation 21:4

.

And in that joyous land, we will live forever, and will be forever young! And forever joyful!
