June 26th, 2015 marked a sad, but historic day in American history. The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to embrace sodomy declaring that same-sex couples have a right to marry anywhere in the United States. As Christians we understand this Supreme Court ruling was never about marriage equality, but redefining the Biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman. This Supreme Court decision, therefore, was a direct attack against God, His Word, His Church, and His people.
Let’s be clear on this, marriage was instituted by God, not the State, between a man and a woman. The State never defined marriage, and in the eyes of the Church, cannot redefine it. It seems insane that the United States has fallen into such sin and debauchery that even the definition of marriage needs to be discussed. Scripture says, “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24). God’s word is eternal and cannot be revised by any earthly government.
Majority: Sotomayor, Kagan, Ginsburg, Breyer, Kennedy

From Justice Roberts. “If you are among the many Americans--of whatever sexual orientation--who favor expanding same-sex marriage, by all means celebrate today's decision. Celebrate the achievement of a desired goal. Celebrate the opportunity for a new expression of commitment to a partner. Celebrate the availability of new benefits. But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it.”
As a Christian, I find it impossible to celebrate trashing the Tenth and Fourteenth Amendments of the US Constitution, slandering Jehovah, and opening the gates of hell.
From Justice Scalia. “But what really astounds is the hubris reflected in today’s judicial Putsch. The five Justices who compose today’s majority are entirely comfortable concluding that every State violated the Constitution for all of the 135 years between the Fourteenth Amendment’s ratification and Massachusetts’ permitting of same-sex marriages in 2003. They have discovered in the Fourteenth Amendment a “fundamental right” overlooked by every person alive at the time of ratification, and almost everyone else in the time since… These Justices know that limiting marriage to one man and one woman is contrary to reason; they know that an institution as old as government itself, and accepted by every nation in history until 15 years ago, cannot possibly be supported by anything other than ignorance or bigotry. And they are willing to say that any citizen who does not agree with that (same-sex marriage), who adheres to what was, until 15 years ago, the unanimous judgment of all generations and all societies, stands against the Constitution."
President Barak Obama made a prophetic decree that “We were only five days away (speaking of his 2008 election as president) of fundamentally changing the United States.” To our nation’s shame, his prophecy and efforts of transformation were correct. We have never seen a president of any nation, which claims to be a Christian, so proud to celebrate a court ruling of sodomites marrying sodomites. During the night, the White House was lit up for the entire world to see with the colors of the rainbow representing sodomite pride. Yet another insult on a loving God which gave the rainbow as a prophetic sign of his everlasting covenant between God and man never to destroy the earth anymore because of sin (Genesis 9:11-16).
Despite man’s desire to celebrate sodomy, God’s word is clear.
“Wherefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts unto uncleanness, that their bodies should be dishonored among themselves: for that they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature (Greek ktisis, institution) rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile passions: for their women changed 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 unseemliness, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was due.
And even as they refused to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up unto a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, hateful to God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, unmerciful: who, knowing the ordinance of God, that they that practice such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but also consent (5-4) with them that practice them.” (Romans 1:24-32)
I pray, with everything within me, that God would spare America from judgment. On the other hand, I believe the nation should brace itself for what’s to come. For it is written, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Galatians 6:7-8).
No doubt America needs a Holy Ghost spiritual awakening. Make this faith declaration with me.
We decree and declare in the Name of Jesus that there is going to be a unity among Christians, churches, and church leaders this backslidden nation has never seen before! When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. “Let God arise and His enemies be scattered. Let those that hate him flee before him” (Psalm 68:1).
