The Inevitable Consequences of the ‘Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill’ if Passed into Law.
In the past the British nation has been richly favoured by the Lord, which is confirmed by its history over many centuries. A brief study of the deliverances granted, in times of war and in other periods of crisis, will readily identify and confirm this. We believe the reason the Lord’s blessing has been experienced is because those in authority did not rely upon their own wisdom and judgment. They either followed Biblical standards or, alternatively, sought to know the Lord’s will by prayer and supplication. Such actions inevitably result in real wisdom being given by the Lord to those who ask Him for it. His promise is “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him” James 1:5.
The situation we are presently experiencing as a nation is a sure and certain evidence that our rulers do not believe in the promises the Lord has given in His Holy Word. How foolish to consider that man’s wisdom is superior to that of our Creator. The Lord has left on record, for our natural and spiritual benefit, very clear words which totally condemn homosexuality. In addition, marriage between one man and one woman was established by God when the world was first created and has been the foundation of society ever since and the best environment in which to bring up children. This creation ordinance was given by God for the benefit and happiness of mankind.
We fear for the future of our nation if our Government passes the proposed legislation with regard to gay marriage. We read in Psalm 9: 17, “The wicked shall be turned into hell and all nations that forget God”. That includes the destruction of nations that have been spiritually blessed with the Word of God, but have then rejected it, and in effect have said “We will not have this man to reign over us” Luke 19:14. How accurately this describes the pattern of events that are taking place in the United Kingdom at the present time.
All true Christians have a responsibility to pray and supplicate the Lord that He may overturn the proposed Gay Marriage Bill. We should do all we can to warn and contend for the upholding of the Scriptural position concerning marriage. May the Lord stir us all up and make us willing to do all we can to defend and promote God’s Word, in spite of all the opposition we may encounter. The devil, Satan, is increasingly active with many supporters.
