Marriage Is Honorable
Hebrews 13:4 tells us that "Marriage is honorable among all and the bed undefiled, but fornicators and adulterers God will judge."
The Greek definition for honorable is "precious."
After the Lord God surgically removed a portion of a rib from Adam's side and made woman, the Lord God presented the woman to Adam. Because of the "first mention" principle in Biblical hermeneutics, marriage was established between one man and one woman.
Before we go further, we need to define and defend the truth about true marriage.
The rogue "Christian" churches have accepted the perverted LGBT doctrine as marriage between same sexes and have forsaken the Lord.
Prevailing Word Ministries unapologetically and unwaveringly stand behind the Biblical version of the institution of marriage between one man and one woman as designed by the Lord God.
Any other doctrine according to Leviticus 18:22, Romans 1:16-32, and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 is perverted, disgusting, and compromise of God's intitution of marriage is an act of betrayal.
Marriage between one man and one woman is "precious" and we must never allow a very small contigent (3% of the American population) tell us otherwise. We must never let 43% of Americans, that happen to be hetrosexuals that agree with the perversion of LGBT to tell us otherwise.
Regardless of the price or imposed penalty to coerce, manipulate, or force us to comply, we will deliberately disobey such laws to comply with SSM. We will not honor, respect, condone, or agree in any shape, form, or fashion any man made law devised by the federal, state, or local governments to usurp the Word of God. We will not condone, perform, participate, or celebrate in any manner same sex marriages. For our God is Sovereign, Eternal, All Powerful, and of His kingdom, there will be no end.
To compromise the Word of God is the greatest disrespect and betrayal of our righteous and holy God, and the eternal principles of the Scriptures, the Holy Word of God.
God's wisdom is clear. If man and man were to be together, God would have made us capable of giving birth. If woman and woman were to be together, God would have made women capable of inseminating another woman. In order for homosexuals to have a "family," homosexuals resort to "artificial insemination, surrogacy, and adoption."
These methods were initially intended to help heterosexual couples to have a family because of their inability to copulate. However, as it goes with perversion, they've robbed this to establish a "family."
LGBT robbed and hijacked Civil Rights, artificial insemination, surrogacy, and adoption, and they've hijacked the institution of marriage to make homosexuality appear to be normal. But no rule of man will ever normalize sin and the results of sin, manifested in STDs which includes HIV/AIDS.
For homosexuals knows that the way to bring legitimacy to their homosexual relationship is to hijack the institution of marriage and use other means to have a family since it is impossible for males to inseminate males so that males could give birth. It is impossible for females to inseminate another female. Therefore, the wisdom of God is proven.
Many of the homosexual community will label this as biased, discriminate, hate language, and bigotry.
Even in the face of these truthful facts. Many will argue that it's about love and providing a home for kids that do not have a mother or father. The Bible says that "love does not rejoice in iniquity but rejoices in the truth."
Many will accuse true Christians of saying such "hateful things?"
Why do you hate homosexuals?
God's Word is clear that He knows how to love sinners and hate sinners at the same time.
Psalm 45:7 says "You love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions."
And the most famous Scripture of all time, John 3:16.
God reserves this right because He is holy. His holiness cannot be compromised, otherwise, He can't be God. God reserves this right because Psalm 100:3 says, "Know the Lord, He is God, He that has made us and not we ourselves."
If you've made yourself, then you would have the right to be whoever you want to be but the product doesn't have power over the Manufacturer as the clay doesn't have power over the potter.
The reason why men hate God is because man will not be allowed to sin and do what he wants to do with impunity.
"The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
The love of the Lord never rejoices in the sins that man commits but the love of God rejoices in the truth.
Having established these undeniable principles, marriage between one man and one woman is God's revelation to us about Himself.
Ephesians 5:24-25 says "Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,"
The true essence of a good marriage is when the wife is subjected to her husband as the church is subjected to Christ AND the husband loves the wife as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her.
The two are inseparable. A wife's subjection is only warranted WHEN the husband loves the wife and gives himself for her.
