It only took twelve years for America to completely redefine marriage. Now the new definition has opened the floodgates for disaster to strike our land.
In 2003, a court ruling in Massachusetts made it the first state to legalize homosexual marriage. In 2013, the United States Supreme Court ruled the Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional. Today, the Supreme Court effectively legalized homosexual marriage in all fifty states with a 5-4 ruling in the case of Obergefell vs Hodges.
Violating the Constitution:
Today’s ruling was based on a twisted interpretation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. To understand the Fourteenth Amendment we have to understand why it was created. It was ratified in 1868, just three years after the civil war and the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment, which abolished slavery in 1865. Here is what the Fourteenth Amendment says:
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
This amendment was needed because even after slavery was abolished by the Thirteenth Amendment the rights of black citizens in some southern states were still being denied by Black Code laws that made it almost impossible for them to own property. The Fourteenth Amendment was added to stop discrimination on the basis of skin color, which was the right thing to do because skin color is not a choice. It is something we are born with and cannot change. However, trying to apply the Fourteenth Amendment to homosexual marriage does not work because people practicing that lifestyle are choosing to do so. Not only that, but they are choosing to do what is unnatural, immoral, and ungodly. They are choosing to defy God so they can indulge their fleshly carnal appetites.
The idea that homosexuals are born that way is a lie, which the Bible exposes in the following seven truths:
- In God’s eyes the practice of homosexuality is on the same level as having sex with animals (Leviticus 18:22-30).
- The penalty for homosexuality is death (Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:31).
- Homosexuality occurs when people exchange the truth of God for a lie and worship and serve the creature rather than the creator (Romans 1:25-27).
- Homosexual passions are degrading, indecent, unnatural, errors, improper, and the result of a depraved mind (Romans 1:26-28).
- Homosexuality is equated with lawlessness, rebelliousness, ungodliness, sinning, unholiness, profanity, murderers of fathers or mothers, immorality, kidnappers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching (1 Timothy 1:8-11)
- No one who practices homosexuality will inherit the kingdom of God. Homosexuals will not be allowed to eat from the Tree of Life (1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Revelation 22:14-15).
- Homosexuality is punished with eternal fire (Jude 1:6-7).
The Lord would never punish anyone with eternal fire unless they were guilty of making wrong choices. That would be unjust, but he is not unjust. His judgments are always fair and right. So the very fact that homosexuality is punished with eternal fire proves that everyone who practices it does so by their own choice and is therefore guilty before God. Therefore homosexuality cannot be equated with skin color, is not a civil right, and is not covered by the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
Does God ever warn of punishment for skin color? Of course not! Only a fool would equate homosexuality with skin color. By turning away from God, America has believed foolish nonsense.
Does the Fourteenth Amendment give adulterers the right to commit adultery, murderers the right to murder, or thieves the right to steal? Obviously not! Neither does it give anyone the right to practice homosexuality. So the argument presented by five Justices today based on the Fourteenth Amendment is a twisted interpretation of the Constitution.
There are good reasons why homosexuality should not be treated like a civil right. Skin color by itself never hurt anyone, but homosexuality destroys not only the person who practices it, but also others around them. See my previous post: 6 Ways Homosexuality is Hurting America. That post was labeled as hate speech by Google. They terminated my advertising account because I refused to remove it. They cannot tolerate anyone who believes the Bible. See my previous post: Google Now Openly Persecuting Christians.
Today’s ruling also violated the Tenth Amendment, which states:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
In other words, any power not specifically identified in the Constitution as belonging to the federal government does not belong to the federal government. It belongs to the states, which means the power belongs to the people of the states. Today’s ruling stripped the states and the people of their right to choose how to handle homosexual marriages. The five Justices who voted in favor of today’s ruling blatantly disregarded the Tenth Amendment by granting power to the federal government that is not identified anywhere in the Constitution.
Violating the Will of the People:
Today’s ruling also violated the will of the people because 31 states had previously passed amendments to their state constitutions prohibiting homosexual marriages, amendments which were passed by the votes of the people. So the will of millions of American citizens were violated by the will of five liberal Justices.
That is the point made by Chief Justice John Roberts today when he wrote the following dissenting view,
“The court invalidates the marriage laws of more than half the states and orders the transformation of a social institution that has formed the basis of human society for millennia, for the Kalahari Bushmen and the Han Chinese, the Carthaginians and the Aztecs. Just who do we think we are?”
Justice Scalia called the decision a “threat to American democracy,” and “a constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine.”
Violating the Will of God:
The Supreme Court has made many bad rulings in the past, but this one is one of their worst ever because it directly contradicts the will of God as revealed in the Bible. The Lord clearly defined marriage to be between a man and a woman with this statement:
Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him”.
So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. The Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh” (Genesis 2:18,21-24).
Where is the fear of God in America? Where is the reverence for his word? When did we become so wise that we now know more than he does about how marriage works? We have become a nation of fools stumbling in the dark. It is just a matter of time before we fall.
In complete defiance of the revealed will of God, the son of perdition, President Obama, told yet another lie to the American people today when he made the following statement.
“This ruling is a victory for America. This decision affirms what millions of Americans already believe in their hearts. When all Americans are truly treated as equal, we are more free.”
Nothing could be further from the truth. The following is my revised version of his statement, based on the truth.
“This ruling is a defeat for America. This decision violates what millions of Americans already believe in their hearts. When all Americans are given legal rights to sin against God, we all lose our freedoms and become slaves to ungodly rulers.”
Sadly, far too few Americans are able to discern the difference between lies and truth. Far too many, including millions of Christians, believe the words of the son of perdition over the words of God. This is the sad spiritual condition of our country.
The Final Abomination
I believe the Supreme Court’s ruling today is America’s final abomination, the fulfillment of what TD Hale saw in his dream, which I shared in my previous post: TD Hale’s 4th Prophetic Dream: Rain of Fire Coming to America.
TD Hale saw all hell breaking loose in America immediately after a major court ruling during Obama’s Presidency. Here is an excerpt from his dream.
Now at this point he (President Obama) walked over to the desk and he picked up a gavel in his hand. The gavel was part wood and part stone. The handle was wood and the head of the gavel was stone. On the desk of the president of United States there is a document with these words written on it, “The final abomination.”
He then hit the document on his desk with the gavel and when he hit this document on the desk then all of a sudden I felt a shaking. Honestly, I felt like my bed was shaking. Literally it was shaking and I could feel it. When he hit this document I shot up into the air and I was standing up above the White House.
Then an earthquake hit Washington DC. Then I saw the earth open up and it went towards the Washington monument then towards the Jefferson Memorial. At that point I began to see an odd colored rain falling. It was the color of fire or something. It started slowly coming down then it intensified little by little. It was coming down faster and faster until the waters started rising. As the waters started rising I went up higher into the atmosphere and I saw the map of the United States. I could see the outline. The waters left Washington and began to flood across the whole United States. I saw them hit Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Indiana, South Carolina, until it completely went all across the United States.
People began to scream across the nation and all I could hear was a mournful sound. It was as if something had happened, a great loss, like if you went into a funeral home and somebody had passed away and you were very close to them. It was that kind of mournful sound. Even in my dream I thought about the days of Noah and what it must have felt like for the people who were outside of the ark when the flood came but they could not get in. They had not listened to the voice of Noah or to the voice of God when he had spoken to them. [Read the full version of this dream]
The gavel in this dream is a reference to a court decision. The document on the desk identifies heaven’s perspective on today’s ruling. It is our final abomination. Just like he saw in the dream, the shaking began immediately after the court decision.
Although President Obama did not personally vote in today’s Supreme Court ruling, he is largely responsible for the outcome because he appointed two of the five judges who voted in favor of homosexual marriage, Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. President Clinton is also responsible because he also appointed two of the criminals, Justices Stephen G. Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, both of whom voted for homosexual marriage.
I don’t believe TD Hale’s dream was meant to reveal a literal earthquake, rain of fire, or flood. I believe each of those were symbolic of the shakings coming soon. He saw a major shaking beginning in Washington DC, which I believe refers to our leaders, then quickly spreading from there to the rest of the country. In the next section I have documented the kinds of shakings I see coming to America.
Now Our Punishment Begins
I believe America has crossed the line and our judgment is now set. The Lord has shown us his kindness by giving us decades of more time in the past, but we squandered his blessings and have not returned to him. Instead, we have kicked him out of our schools, our public properties, our government, our market places, our news programs, our televisions programs, and even our churches. Now it is going to take severe shakings to wake us up and convince a remnant to return to him. We are going to learn what the scripture means, “behold the kindness and the severity of God” (Romans 11:22).
Based on what he has revealed to me and others I believe America’s future now includes the following seven shakings:
- A political crisis in which there is confusion about who is in charge of our nation. We have already seen a battle for control between our federal and state governments, largely due to the unprecedented unwillingness of our federal government to close our borders and protect our land from terrorist attacks. Along these lines, both Bobby Conner and Terry Bennett have seen charges of treason will be brought against President Obama. I believe he will avoid any consequences, but will at least have to endure the charges.
- A complete meltdown of our financial system wiping out the wealth of millions of Americans.
- Geophysical calamities, including major earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
- Riots and civil unrest. I believe this will begin when millions of Americans stop getting their government checks.
- False flag events conducted by our federal government will be designed to divide us in every way possible, including racially and economically. They will use the false flag events as an excuse to take away more of our freedoms, even confiscating our weapons, which will ultimately lead to civil war and martial law.
- Military conflicts, and ultimately a military invasion.
- Food shortages leading to widespread famine, starvation, and death.
Detailed warnings about each of these shakings have been documented in separate posts on this site. This is the fate of a nation that turns its back on God. The way of the transgressor is hard (Proverbs 13:15).
Even as this ruling was handed down today, we are already starting to feel the rumblings with rumors of a planned worldwide economic collapse coming this year, the threat of war with China, a severe drought in California, a looming default in Greece, and rising interest rates over the past six weeks wiping out over a trillion dollars of wealth at Deutsche Bank in Germany. Even as I am writing this, loud thunder is rumbling outside my window.
In the words of Russell Crow in the movie Noah, “The time for mercy has passed. Now our punishment begins.”
The movie had nothing to do with the Biblical Noah, but I believe his statement was prophetic. If God can speak through a donkey, surely he can also speak through Russell Crow (Numbers 22:28). How God chooses to speak to us is not the question. The question is, are we listening?
