Same Sex Marriage: Defiling the "Marriage of the Lamb"
Guest Columnist, Pastor Joseph Chambers, Paw Creek Ministries
Few things make the promises of God more beautiful than Satan's drive to defile
and debauch them. Everything in God's world, and especially His plans for the
Biblical future, has been attacked by the devil. That's what the devil is, an
imitator and substitute showman that belittles the breathtaking future of the
Kingdom of God. Satan's drive to portray himself as God has never produced one
thing but proof that he is a "god," the idiot god, clearly headed
for defeat. Same-sex immorality, and especially same-sex "marriage",
is Satan's darkest imitation. Lucifer has always reserved his grandest schemes
to try to defile God's greatest glory.
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is the pinnacle of the church's
future. The saints of God that have paid the ultimate price in sacrifice and
complete abandonment to Christ's kingdom are soon to shine like jewels in His
eternal crown. Joseph A. Seiss, a Lutheran pastor of a century ago, said, "The
harlot (must be) swept away" and then "the faithful woman comes to
her rightful honors." ("The Apocalypse", Joseph A. Seiss,
p. 425.) He further stated, "The Betrothed, so long waiting amid
privation, persecution, and contempt, now becomes a Bride." (Ibid.)
Same-sex marriage represents the immorality and fallen character of the "harlot
woman", and she is soon to be swept away so that the true Bride can be
ushered into her glory.
The marriage of a man and a woman is a type and figure of the Marriage of the Lamb and Jesus' Bride. We must understand that same-sex marriage is an attack on this earthly sacrament also. Those who claim the right to call the immoral union of two men or two women a "marriage" blaspheme every husband and wife. Same-sex marriage is not just a sin; it is an abomination preserved for the ultimate judgment of God. By the Holy Ghost, Apostle Paul said:
"Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers (male prostitutes, especially homosexual prostitutes) and adulterers God will judge." (Hebrews 13:4).
No experience of human flesh is more sacred than marriage. The first institution
that God established to satisfy the deep longing of man was his union with woman.
God intended that we fill His world with a multitude of offspring to love and
Satan is on a rampage to defile the family of humankind and the future family of the redeemed. There is no doubt that he will temporarily succeed. He will turn this world into a wilderness one more time. The process of his debauchery has begun and this will be his final fling. Before we deal with the glory of the future Marriage of the Lamb, we must view the worldwide homosexual brothel that Satan is planning. I do not believe that there is any question but that the Antichrist will be a homosexual. The world is literally hell-bent on making the sodomite lifestyle the order of the day. Anyone that refuses to call this lifestyle "okay" is attacked with ferocity. Sodomites are thrilled to destroy any institution that stands in their way. Their motives and methods cannot be called anything but demonic. It will become a crime to open your mouth to disagree with them.
The Antichrist Will Be a Sodomite
Making this statement has never been acceptable with most prophecy teachers.
That is about to change. The worldwide drive to decriminalize this destructive
conduct has passed the point of no return. The battle-cry now is to legalize
same-sex marriage and to raise the sodomite community to represent the dominant
characteristics of mankind. This will be the Antichrist culture for his prophesied
seven years of rule. Those that oppose this development will be hated until
the Rapture; those that miss the Rapture will be hunted and destroyed after
the Rapture. I believe that the Antichrist will seek to cleanse the earth of
heterosexual conduct after he gains worldwide control. The Biblical family will
be outlawed for seven dark years.
Daniel prophesied of the Antichrist's character. By the Holy Ghost he spoke:
"And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain." (Daniel 11:36-39).
The wording of the passage leaves no doubt that this "god" promoted
by the Antichrist will be totally unprecedented. All heathenism and heathen
temples have historically exalted sodomy and sodomite prostitutes as a key part
of their rituals. This evil Antichrist and his strange god (Lucifer) will speak
marvelous (high, strange, and hidden) things. He will exalt sin and immorality
to a new level and swiftly cause the entire earth to become a complete moral
The churches, temples, mosques, and synagogues of the world will all become sodomite institutions ruled by prostitutes of this new faith. We have already learned that at least half of the Catholic priests of this worldwide religion are homosexuals. Catholic bishops have basically made using children as sex toys acceptable. Now, the Episcopalians have made the transition to electing an openly gay bishop. For a long time, they have allowed sodomites to serve as priests and become members of their churches. Other denominations are quickly following this same pattern. Bible-believing churches are daily becoming more impossible to find. It will get worse as we await our Lord's return. As Jesus foretold:
"... when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" Luke 18:8
Rather than expecting genuine "revival" at the End of the Age, we should be looking for unprecedented falling away from the true faith!
The harlot woman of Revelation Seventeen is the Biblical picture of the New World Religion. She is a "great whore" and rules the religious world of the Antichrist kingdom -- New World Order. She makes the world drunk, intoxicated on her filth. The Antichrist makes this new religion wealthy and demands that she and all her priests promote total abominations by Biblical standards. This new religion will be responsible for the Mark of the Beast and will offer that mark only to those that fit their culture. The rest will be swiftly eliminated. Tens of millions will die at their hand.
What Can We Expect While We Await the Rapture?
I'm concerned about what is going to happen after the Rapture, but I'm more concerned about what will happen before the Rapture. The spirit of deception is so overwhelming that most people have no idea what is happening. Many otherwise decent people cannot comprehend the onslaught of the evil landslide we are experiencing. Already people are saying, "I don't mind sodomites being members of the church serving as elders, etc., but I cannot accept them as bishops or in high offices." That's total compromise. The church world is full of members that live together outside of marriage. If Jesus tarries, we are on the verge of being a worldwide Sodom and Gomorrah. The saints are going to soon be like Lot of whom it was said, "For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds." (II Peter 2:8). Daniel described this coming hour perfectly. "Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand." (Daniel 12:10).
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb
This glorious day of triumph is about to experience a revival of interest among
Godly, Born Again saints. As good men and women watch the world "go to
hell" right here on earth, the beauty of our Biblical hope will transform
into the Heavenly beyond measure. The devil always overplays his hand. Human
marriage, when compared to the dark deeds of two men or two women, is beautiful
beyond description. Purity is most beautiful when you see it side by side with
Raise your thoughts to the next level of marriage where the Lamb of God will
take His eternal Bride and enter the Eternal City of New Jerusalem. The union
of the Lord Jesus Christ and His church is the ultimate hope of the redeemed.
Satan hates this future event and seeks to imitate it with his harlot bride
and her sodomite children. It can only make our hope more beautiful as the world
witnesses the whoredom and the arrogance against all that is "holy."
The Psalmist David caught a peep into this triumph and wrote the Divine message his spirit received. He saw the throne, where the Father sat; he saw the Lamb of God triumphant and descending out of the Ivory Palaces to get His Bride; and he saw the Bride dressed in the glamour of His righteousness. He wrote by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit:
"Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad." (Psalm 45:6-8)
"The king's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold. She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee. With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king's palace." (Psalm 45:13-15).
This glorious message was almost too much for King David, but he said, "My tongue is the pen of a ready writer." (Psalm 45:1b). He had already said in an earlier psalm:
"Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." (Psalm 16:9-11).
This prophet of God had seen the Marriage Supper and said that his future death was nothing but "rest in hope". Surely, we that are now living on the edge of the Marriage Supper should be elated with "joyous expectation," even more than David.
John's Vision of the Marriage Supper
All that is ugly and dark is soon to be judged and burned with fire. The glorious
church, redeemed and glorified, shall not miss the coming hour of His glory.
Before we hear the text of the Apostle John, let me share this song of old.
"There be prudent Prophets all,
The Apostles six and six,
The glorious Martyrs in a row,
And Confessors betwixt.
There doth the crew of righteous men
And nations all consist;
Young men and maids that here on earth
Their pleasures did resist.
"The sheep and lambs that hardly 'scaped
The snare of death and hell,
Triumph in joy eternally,
Whereof no tongue can tell;
And though the glory of each one
Doth differ in degree,
Yet is the joy of all alike
And common certainly.
"There David stands, with harp in hand,
As master of the choir;
A thousand times that men were blessed
That might his music hear.
There Mary sings 'Magnificat,'
With tunes surpassing sweet;
And all the virgins bear their part,
Singing about her feet.
"' Te Deum,' doth St. Ambrose sing,
St. Austin doth the same;
Old Simeon and Zacharie
Anew their songs inflame.
There Magdalene hath left her moan,
And cheerfully doth sing,
With all blest saints whose harmony
Through every street doth ring.
"And in that holy company
May you and I find place,
Through worth of him who died for us,
And through his glorious grace;
With Cherubim and Seraphim,
And hosts of ransomed men,
To sing our praises to The Lamb,
And add our glad Amen."
(The Apocalypse, Joseph A. Seiss, p. 432.)
Nothing on this earth can compare with this future glory of Christ's true church. A worldly church does not even preach about this truth, but a persecuted church certainly will. Jesus Christ, as He was ending His earthly journey, gave His disciples a parting promise that He would prepare the wedding chamber and surely return to rescue them and all the ready saints. He said:
"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." (John 14:1-3).
That wedding chamber and city is ready because this same Apostle John that
penned these words prophetically saw the city gleaming in Heavenly "Son"
light. This city is ready, the living saints are ready, the angels are ready,
the dead in Christ are ready, and we are awaiting the Father to give the final
word. I certainly know that Jesus Christ is ready and He will soon appear to
begin the end.
In his final revelation, John gave us the exact picture of this moment of glory.
"Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God." (Revelation 19:7-9).
When I have read those words in the past they did not set intense fire burning in my heart as they should, but the more I see the false and the abominations of Satan, the more I understand those words, "Let us be glad and rejoice " When you view the location of this Marriage Supper, the exalted host Jesus Christ and the glorified saints of both past and present, it quickly becomes an event like no other in human history. Joseph Seiss spoke of it with these words:
"It is Christ in the character of the Lamb, the mighty God, formally acknowledging and taking to himself as co-partners of his throne, dominion, and glory, all those chosen ones who have been faithful to their betrothal, and appear at last in the spotless and shining apparel of the righteousness of the saints, thenceforward to be with him, reign with him, and share with him in all his grand inheritance, forever." ("The Apocalypse", Joseph A. Seiss, p. 430.)
I believe this event of the Marriage of the Lamb is the first visit into the
twelve-tiered city with the gates of pearl.
"Ten thousand times ten thousands in sparkling raiment's bright,
The armies of the ransomed saints throng up the steps of light.
"Tis finished, all is finished, their fight with death and sin.
Fling open wide the pearly gates and let the victors in." (Unknown)
When we enter this magnificent city, where the Lamb is the Light and enter
together with the saints of all ages into the banquet chamber prepared just
for this event, words would fail if it were not for our glorified bodies. The
praise and glory that fills the air will be so heavenly and so blessed that
angels will cease their singing to listen with rapt attention. As saint after
saint hears Him, the Eternal Christ and Bridegroom will pass out the eternal
rewards and appoint His redeemed to the cities of the earth; His honor will
fill the Bridal Chamber. At the appointed time, the only Begotten Son, now robed
in the glory of His Father, -- which He temporarily laid aside to visit Calvary
to make His offering for sin -- will serve the cup of Heavenly communion.
He promised to His disciples before they watched the cruel hand of death wreck His sacred body and before He left to take His place at the Father's right hand: "But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom." (Matthew 26:29). It is fitting that this promise will be kept at the Marriage Celebration because this is the time when the Father's Kingdom will be inaugurated and set in motion. Can you imagine taking communion at the hands of the Savior Himself as the Testament is fulfilled to the letter?
This world system is in the throes of its final death. Immoral conduct has sunk to the bottom rung of human depravity. Satan is preparing for his last rampage, but the saints of God are trusting in the promises that cannot fail. Same-sex marriage represents the last dregs in God's cup of wrath. You cannot stoop lower than to blaspheme the sacrament of marriage and the Bridegroom of His Eternal Bride. Our God is watching and is about to act. Isaiah, the statesmen prophet, spoke of our day.
"And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment."
"According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence. So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD." (Isaiah 59:14-15; 59:18-20)
God the Father is watching, taking note of both the righteous and the abominable. He knows all, and at the precise moment, the End will begin.
