God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them: ‘Be fertile and multiply and fill the earth (Genesis 9:1).” God re-establishes man’s dominance over all the earth (Genesis 1:26, Genesis 9:2-3), as well as the call to Multiply (Genesis 1:28, Genesis 9:1).
With Noah, God resets his creation with the promise of a new covenant, “I will establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all bodily creatures be destroyed by the waters of a flood; there shall not be another flood to devastate the earth.” God added, ‘This is the sign that I am giving for all ages to come, of the covenant between me and you and every living creature with you: I set my bow (rainbow) in the clouds to serve as a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I bring clouds over the earth, and the bow (rainbow) appears in the clouds, I will recall the covenant I have made between me and you and all living beings, so that the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all mortal beings. As the bow (rainbow) appears in the clouds, I will see it and recall the everlasting covenant that I have established between God and all living beings–all mortal creatures that are on earth. God told Noah: ‘This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all mortal creatures that are on the earth.” Genesis 9:1-17
This covenant that God makes with Noah is the first since the fall of Adam and Eve. God is re-establishing his relationship with man and the rainbow is the sign of this everlasting covenant. As a child growing up, this story of Noah and the Ark was very basic, God spared His creation giving the rainbow as the sign of this covenant.
Let me ask you what sign does the rainbow represent that most young people today would identify with? Is it the covenant with Noah? No, not hardly, it is the sign or the flag of the Gay Agenda. This is not the only sign the Homosexual movement has taken to identify themselves.
The Virgin Mary, the Mother of Jesus is often times seen as an advocate representing the people of God. This has always been what the Old Testament Queens of Israel had done. The Holy Spirit is referred to by Jesus as the advocate that will keep the Church in line with the Lord’s teachings (John 14:26, 15:26). 1 John 2:1-2 also refers to Jesus as the advocate before the Father.
For Christians, Mary is seen as an advocate before the Lord, Jesus is seen as the advocate before the Father, and the Holy Spirit is seen as the advocate for the Church. However, like the Homosexual movement has tried to hijack the sign of the covenant, they are also trying to hijack who and what the advocate is.
One of the major homosexual publications goes by the name “Advocate.com”. This publican even calls Pope Francis their “Person of the Year” because they are trying to twist his words as if he was accepting the Gay Agenda. They will not be so elated with the Pope after his words at the end of the recent synod on the family. What the Homosexual advocacy groups is doing is what the Secularist have always attempted to do, to water down the religious foundations of our Country and form them into their own identities.
What these pro-homosexual groups do is go after any residual spark where religious freedom is still practiced and attacks them using Judicial activism, the media, and the ignorance of the low information crowd. One of the stories I noticed on their publication, “Advocate” features Vegas Elvis Chapel not marrying Gays. The purpose? To get Gay activist motivated to begin working on forcing a change.
With the Secularizing of America, these tactics employed by the Gay Agenda are in step with how the Atheists, the Muslims, and the Non-religious have been pushing what looks like Socialism, Communism, and Marxism into this Country. All of it is to ware down the foundations of America.
The Catholic Church and others have been on the receiving end of attacks by the Progressive Movement in the United States going back to the time of President Theodore Roosevelt. The Government take over of healthcare, the destruction of the traditional family, and the changing of our laws and foundations has used Public schools and higher education as a principle means to change the format of America.
If America had been taken over by a foreign power, this takeover would simply employ the same tactics using propaganda that would deconstruct Americans stand on freedom. They would employ using re-education camps brainwashing young people to accept the enemy takeover. The encouragement to use drugs, anything that can help alter and ease mind control to facilitate the takeover of America. Remember the movie Red Dawn anyone?
The battle lines are drawn, in Texas, we have the Mayor of Houston who has called for Christian Leaders to turn over their sermons and homilies over to the city government so they can inspect what they preach?
On Sept. 25, 2014, a resolution was passed by the local city council, (which was not passed by the people of Austin) for rainbow crosswalks on Bettie Naylor and 4th street. This is just another measure that the Gay Agenda is receiving support by a few people. Just like the upcoming St. Patrick’s Parade, the Gay Agenda is becoming more and more pushed by the ultra-left Progressive movement.
Throughout the Country, Christians are finding themselves on the short end of the stick going head to head with the Gay Agenda, from calling the Gay lifestyle a sin, to actually making cakes, taking pictures, and being forced to marry them.
The Gay Agenda wants to make it a crime if Ministers are not willing to marry homosexuals. This is a great attack on religious liberty and freedom in following what the Church has always taught. The Church needs to wake up, I hope that the actions taken in Oklahoma City recently that sparked outrage over a “Black Mass” will become more and more open as Christians take a stand for our Constitutional rights.
Senator Reid and the Democrats have already put into motion to strip the 1st Amendment of the Constitution away from the American people, they will want to take the bible out of public life and eventually out of our homes. Is this a scare tactic? No, not at all, this is a real threat. If the Democrats maintain power in the Senate, look out.
How do we face this threat? I love the story coming out of Tennessee that the Secularist attacked a local high school for have the a prayer before the football game. Something that was part of the tradition of the school going back 80 years. So, all that was offered from the PA announcer was a moment of silence. That is when a young girl on the cheer-leading team began to pray the Lord’s Prayer, quickly she was joined by her mates, then the football team, then the opposing football team, then the crowd in the stands.
That is a great example and how the sleeping giant can wake up to be a great bear, a great lion that will stand up for our religious rights and freedoms that have been trampled upon now by the radical left.
Church, where are you at in your communities? Are you hiding under a rock wishing the bad to go away, complaining how bad it is getting, wishing someone will do something? Like the brave cheer-leaders who challenged the Secularist in the open, we too need to come out into the open. First by voting in people who will stand up against the Progressives and the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party itself have been hijacked by the ultra-left. It is no longer the peoples party that represented the common man, but it has taken on the special interest of the ultra-left agenda.
Then we need to challenge lawfully those who seek to take away our fundamental rights, to teach our children the true history of our Nation, to love the meaning of our flag, to stand up for the Constitution of the United States of America. President Ronald Reagan warned: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
So, Church, we have the power to vote, the power to pray, and the power to act (lawfully) to stand up against those who seek to destroy faith in America.
I for one, will hold fast to the original sign of the rainbow that God gave the world through Noah. The rainbow represents the first covenant God makes with mankind since the fall of man. It is important that the Church of the living God lift high the banner of Christ.
Editor update: America has past from having the choice of either Nineveh or Sodom. The Supreme Court and the Obama Administration has chosen Sodom. Heaven help America.
