Sunday, November 30, 2008 Reaping The Consequences
The latest article posted by the AP (Associated Press) stated that about 26 percent of New York City adults have genital herpes, compared to about 19 percent nationwide. My friend, this is only the tip of the decadent iceberg! The New York Health Department stated that genital herpes can double a person's risk for contracting HIV. The rate of contracting herpes is highest among New Yorkers, women, gay men and black people. My beloved, one-in-four New Yorkers has herpes!!! That's 2,000,000 individuals! This statistic should frighten and alarm any sane individual. How can this be? How can one in four have this dread disease? The answer is quite simple but quite often rejected and scoffed at. In rejecting the Author of all moral absolutes, fallen man has reaped the consequences of his godless behavior. The Sexual Revolution of the 60's has propelled our culture and society into a decadent, lewd and base bordello. America has become a sex-addicted culture from top to the bottom. From the old to the young, from the Internet to magazines, from prime-time television programming to the pop music industry, from Hollywood to Washington D.C., etc., the secular media has done all it can do to continually erode the moral fiber and scoff at any moral standard of this once great nation, which was founded on Judeo-Christian absolutes. The Puppet Master behind this sex crazed Secular Media Machine and society is none other then the Prince of the Power of the Air, i.e., Satan. His desire has been to destroy this nation's Christian witness to the world, which he has indeed accomplished. The Bible states: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12), and Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the Prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others (Ephesians 2:2-3).
Today STD's (sexually transmitted diseases) abound among our youth. Sexual addictions and pornography are possessing millions today. Marriages ruined by adultery are innumerable. The traditional family is in shambles. Children born out of wedlock are suffering great physiological burdens and emotional trauma. The worldwide AIDS epidemic is ramping up. Since 1973 there have been 46,000,000 abortions in the U.S., and the resulting psychological effect on women has been devastating. Sex trade and trafficking is blooming. Gay marriage and sodomy are being promoted and accepted with disastrous effects. Yet still, after all the horrible and devastating effects of these lifestyles, people still mock and scoff at those who practice morality and believe in the God of morality. The consequences of the Sexual Revolution have indisputably ravaged America. When will the scoffer learn and take heed to God's warnings which are given in love? God, who is Love, wants only the highest and best for all humanity. He thus gives stern warning about trampling on His Absolutes and trespassing against the Laws of Nature and of Natures God. The Bible states: 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 (Galatians 6:19-21).
God in His love warns about the consequences of these actions. Those who refuse to acknowledge their trespasses and repent of (i.e., turn away from) such behavior will be held accountable to their Creator, the Righteous Judge of all the earth. The Bible states: 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 (1 Cor. 6:9-10).
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death (Revelation 21:8).
God in no way desires that any should perish; that is why He sent His Son to pay the price for our trespasses and sins. Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? (Ezekiel 18:23).
Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel [or any Whosoever]? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye (Ezekiel 18:30-31).
The Word of God states: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved (John 3:16-17).
Those that put their trust in Jesus Christ, God's Son, find full and free forgiveness in and perfect fellowship with their Creator/ Redeemer and Sustainer. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).
And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them (Ephesians 2:1-9).
And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God (1 Corinthians 6:11).
There is hope today and deliverance from this raunchy society. This hope is found in Jesus Christ. In these last days may Almighty God and His Word be our source of sanity in this insane, secular, raunchy world that is only getting worse.
The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand!

But “that’s not FAIR”. It discriminates against indiscriminate hedonists.
