The Abnormal Sexual Behaviour - of the End Times

The Abnormal Sexual Behaviour - of the End Times
(Part 1)

Refusing to know God, they soon didn't know how to be human either—women didn't know how to be women, men didn't know how to be men. Sexually confused, they abused and defiled one another, women with women, men with men—all lust, no love (Romans 1:26-27 The Message)

Welcome back to today’s “Truth for the Journey” in which we will bring to a conclusion the series about “The (End Time) Seduction of Women” while simultaneously beginning another 5 part series on “The Abnormal Sexual behaviour – of the End Times.” Now of course sexual seduction is part of the fallen nature for “all” mankind and therefore we want to look over the next couple of weeks at the subject of “sexuality” in general; its perverse nature and how it manifests. For instance one of the biggest issues that is facing us right now is “homosexuality” and the different ways that people are expressing their sexuality.

So this study will involve the nature of homosexuality but also all other “orientations” that exist, as we want to cover it all - “sexuality in general” - a subject much too vast to cover in one single conclusive article. Therefore we have aimed to approach this in a balanced manner and in order to benefit from this “balance” we strongly recommend that you read all 5 parts of this next series so that you don’t draw any premature conclusions or form any early opinion - until you have read the series in context.

So as we draw the curtain on specific seduction of women in these end times; today’s article we look into the topic of homosexuality, which of course affects both men and women. Homo – basically meaning “same.” And as we have discussed previously “sexuality” in general is being “accelerated and exaggerated” in this last age - more than ever before, which is hard to believe knowing the kind of perversions that were in play during the Roman Empire and the earlier pagan world; where such events as “orgies” and “sex-fests” were common place.

Nevertheless perversion of every kind is on the rise and if we were to ask a “psychologist” today, to give us a brief and distinct definition for the word “perversion,” their standard reply would be: “any abnormal means of obtaining sexual satisfaction.” In addition to this, here are a collection of the most basic definitions that I could find on the web (in the English language) - as follows:

1. the act of perverting or the state of being perverted
2. a perverted form or usage
3. a curve that reverses the direction of something
4. the action of perverting something (turning it to a wrong use); (i.e. "it was a perversion of justice")
5. activity that transgresses moral or civil law.

So as we can see above the English language is clear and distinct when it comes to “perversion!” Yet even more so, was one particular dictionary that I found online that gave a more “exacting” definition for perversion: “an aberrant sexual practice; sexual perversion - paraphilia - abnormal sexual activity: anal intercourse, anal sex, buggery, sodomy (intercourse via the anus, committed by a man with a man or woman).” http://www.thefreedictionary.com/perversion

So with this context of perversion at the forefront – as stipulated by the English language – in essence perversion is taking something that is going in one direction and making it go in another – for which it was not fashioned or formed. And this is where homosexuality comes into the plot. For instance it would be correct to say that “procreation, reproduction, breeding and populating” – are all amongst the chief reasons for sex – regardless of relational value and the possibility for meaningful pleasure derived from such. Pleasure then is not the “only” purpose of sex rather an “additional benefit” or “bonus” of having sex! This is without mentioning anything about birth control and every other aspect about sex. On face value alone - sex is vital to world population - something which would be literally “impossible” if everyone were created “homo”-sexual. So by all intents and purposes sex is vital to the human race and does not just feature along the lines of pleasure or pain.

Let’s be clear about this. Anything “homo” – is “sterile” simply because it cannot “reproduce” itself, like God “instructed” Adam and Eve in the garden to “...be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth” (Gen 1:28). Biologically anything “homo” in this context is barren, counterproductive and can be considered a false union. Now I understand that for gay couples this can be hurtful and a bitter pill to swallow. Also I am aware that each people’s definition of “normal” differs greatly – therefore this is not a discussion of what is considered as “normal” or “abnormal” but rather what “perverse” and what is “not.” In reality most languages have a clear definition for the word “perversion” much the same as our own (English) yet most folks would never like to think of themselves or be defined as perverse! Yet it is safe to say that “anything” can be perverse, even plants that grow in the wrong direction! “Perversion is a curve that reverses the direction of something; i.e. "the tendrils of the plant exhibited perversion" or "perversion also shows up in kinky telephone cords!" http://www.thefreedictionary.com/perversion

What was considered perverse in yesteryear is not necessarily considered perverse today. Homosexuality has become acceptable now. A “conditioning” has taken place largely by the media to the point that homosexuality is no longer considered offensive, where even straight folks will defend homosexuality and readily brand “anyone” who thinks otherwise a “homo-phobic!” In fact the gay pride or power has elevated its voice so much so today that little is said to bring a case against it. BUT THEN THE BIBLE! Even when public opinion changes and “political-will” reverses – God’s Word remains the same!

According to the Bible homosexuality is a clear “perversion” of what God intended for His creation. Simply consider if all the animals rebelled and went “homo” – then many species would have been extinct today! None of this is meant to offend anyone – after all when we put theology and philosophy and all other differences aside – and just talk biology (not prejudice or discrimination I must add; nor hatred or narrow-mindedness) just science. We can let the biology speak for itself!

However the New Testament teaches us in the Ephesians 6:12 that we are not up against flesh and blood – so what are we up against except for “principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places?” (KJV) This is a spiritual battle and not something that we can hold against “individuals” but against the violation of creation from its “ordained order” and “proper function.” Now folks can emotionally, physically and spiritually violate themselves if they so choose to do so but it’s not God’s best for them. Instead His “best” for them involves life, not disease, sterility or death (see Deut 30:19).

Now I am one who agrees with the argument that gluttony is just as much a sin as any other. We can conduct an article here about “obesity” to offend all the overweight believers instead but for now we must focus on one topic at a time! Nevertheless it is intriguing how much we tend to “segregate” sin into neat labelled boxes – making some sins seem so “great,” while others are much more “acceptable.” However scripture says, “everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard” (Romans 3:22-24). I know that writing an article about this subject of homosexuality will not change the facts - nevertheless some folks in Christendom have very little understanding about these issues and have even become intimidated or frightened to speak out - in case they are deemed “politically incorrect” or “infringe” someone else’s “basic human rights.” Oh how we hate to “offend” in this 21st century! Yet scripture clearly states, “...we preach Christ crucified... a stumbling block ...foolishness... But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise” (see 1 Cor 1:19-28 KJV). In verse 19 it says, “where is the disputer of this world?” this also means where is the “sophist” of this world. It is true, we become so “sophisticated” and “humanistic” that we miss the simplicity of the scriptures and its life saving, life changing meaning (Rom 1:16).

Now as we have stated before, it is within a person’s right to be gay if they so choose. Some even say they have no choice because they were “born this way!” Others say that they were abused at a early age which helped influenced their orientation. Others still, say they were confused about their sexuality and found their sexual identity as a result of “sexual-experimentation.” Psychologists who study the science of “human-behaviour” site many reasons for homosexuality but it simply comes down to “fallen nature,” which is something that their science cannot explain away!

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Father thank you for my “sexuality” – I trust you with it and believe that you will guide me by your Spirit in everything – even in that area of my life. Why would I need help in every area accept that one? So I dedicate my sexuality to You. I submit it to you and know that all confusion from the world around me will be quietened and made subject to your Word. Amen.

CONFESSION OF THE DAY
Today Spirit of God you are my advocate in all things. No area of my life is void of your help and assistance. Deception is never far away but your leading and guiding is closer. I have a clear understanding today because of you. You illuminate the Word for me so that I have eyes to see and ears to hear. I am not darkened by the philosophies of this world but enlightened by your truth – hallelujah!

THANK YOU FOR HELPING TO MAKE THIS MINISTRY POSSIBLE!
WE LOVE YOU…!
