In the eyes of LGBTQ+, it is pride month. Yep, that is right, June is the month that sexually perverted people celebrate what they believe in, although it will send them to hell when they die lest they repent. But this was always known of homosexuals since the times of the early church. Paul spoke out about them and said that pride causes them to do what they do. In Romans 1, it reads, “for this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.” (Romans 1:26-28) Paul does speak of their pride in the next few verses, but if you read what was just spoken, it is also their lust which burns for the same sex that causes them to also have sexual intercourse with one another. This is in error before God. They do not have a clear mind, but a reprobate one. That is why they willfully go against their parent’s desires and God’s will for marriage and families.
Paul wrote about the characteristics of homosexuals. They are “filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” (Romans 1:29-32) As you see, God will punish every prideful sinner come judgment day. Surely, “pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.” (Proverbs 16:18-20) My friends, if people celebrate their sinful lifestyle, this also stirs up the wrath of God about them. He may not destroy them in this life like Sodom, but their pride will eventually catch up with them when they die. These willful sexual sinners will be found out guilty and be cast into the lake of fire, lest they confess their sins to Jesus and get right with God in this life.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that You will stir in each one of us a desire to live for You. I know that there are homosexuals out there that still believe in You, but their sinful lifestyle is keeping them from Your presence. Just like if I kept having sex outside of marriage, had an adulterous affair, or kept looking at porn, I would be in the same state as them. You have shown me all this, God. That sexual sin will keep a person from going to heaven, where instead, their destination is hellfire and damnation. And for this reason, I pray for their salvation. You have led me to speak to many different homosexuals and couples over the years and I am so grateful for that. Some of them have been accepting of Your words, but others have come mocking me and You in their defiance. I wish that each of them would be convicted of their sins and confess them openly unto You. You are so good to us, God, and I pray that every person will understand their need to be washed by Your blood. Yes, Jesus, the blood that was shed for us on the cross. If people would submit their lives to You, then could you do a work in them like never before. Where it was impossible for them to change, You are able to do that in them for Your glorious purposes. I know that In your kingdom sin cannot abound, that is why I live in Your holiness. Thank You for coming into my life, that I may be a worthy servant because of You. I love You. Amen.
