Strengthening Families Across the World through the encouragement of women in their high calling from God as wives, mothers and homemakers.

Posted by on in Women's Daily Encouragement Blog

WhichSideThere are ultimately only two kingdoms in this world--the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan. The big question we have to ask is: what kingdom are we building for? As we daily build our homes and families we are building for one kingdom or the other.

Hebrews 1:8 says: “Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of thy kingdom.” In other words, the hallmark of God’s kingdom is RIGHTESOUSNESS. Talking of Jesus Christ, the next verse (v. 9) says: “Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity, therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.”

Romans 14:17 says: “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but RIGHTEOUSNESS, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.”

And we all know Matthew 6:33: “ Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his RIGHTEOUSNESS; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

As we build our little kingdom home, which we want to be part of God’s kingdom, we must lift up righteousness in our home. We must cast out all that is foreign to righteousness. Anything that is unrighteous or unclean allows Satan’s kingdom to get a foothold in our home.

Become a builder for God’s kingdom of righteousness. It’s worth it. It’s an everlasting kingdom that has no end.

Be encouraged.

judge righteouslyIn response to some of my posts of the last few days, many have replied with the same old mantra of “Judge not that ye be not judged.” Whenever the homosexual agenda is mentioned, out comes this Scripture from the woodwork. However, the doctrine of any subject is not what God says in one verse, but what He says throughout the whole Bible. We must get the whole picture. Therefore, can I humbly ask that those who pull out this Scripture from their hat will be honest enough to sincerely study what God says throughout His Holy Word?

What does the New Testament say about homosexualitySome have mentioned that the New Testament does not talk against homosexuality. Let’s have another look. When Jesus was asked a question about marriage, He reiterated what God spoke in the very beginning at the first marriage ceremony: "Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall be one flesh?" (Matthew 19:5-6). Jesus confirmed God's plan from the beginning that marriage is between a man and a woman. In this one Scripture, He states "father and mother,” and "man and wife." No mention of the same sexes.

There are other references in the New Testament and Jesus Christ, who is God, testifies to everything written in His holy Word. Read the following Scriptures: Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Galatians 5:19; Ephesians 5:3-7; and Colossians 3:5-7. Both Titus 1:16 and Revelation 21:27 mention that which is "abominable" which is what God calls homosexuality, plus all sexual sins (Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; and Deuteronomy 23:17). God is a holy God and wants us to be holy in mind and body.

Let’s be honest. We all know that God doesn't change his mind from the Old Testament to the New Testament. He is the God of both testaments.

Always after truth,

GetItStraightIn understanding Scripture, the “law of the first mention” is critical. When God states something the first time, He lays down a foundation for that particular truth. He adds to it and develops it throughout the rest of His Word, but He does not change from the establishing of the “first mention.”

The first mention of marriage in the Bible is in Genesis 2:24. In this Scripture God speaks of the man and his wife, and the father and mother. God puts male and female together-- His plan from the eternity. There is no mention of same sexes.

If we want something to work properly we have to read the manual from the one who designed it. God is the one who created our bodies and designed marriage and we better make sure we take notice of His manual.

One of the synonyms of marriage is matrimony, usually called “holy matrimony”--the union of a man and woman for life. It comes from the Latin word, “matrimonium,” from “mater,” from which come the words-- mother, maternal, matrimony, marriage. Therefore the full understanding of marriage is that the wife will become a mother. This cannot happen naturally in a homosexual relationship. It is totally unnatural and against God’s divine order of creation and His eternal plan for us.

We cannot bow to mortal man’s deception, distortion, and desecration of divine truth.

WillNotBowI currently have this picture on my computer screen as a reminder to have the courage to stand for truth and righteousness.

May God help us to be those who will not bow down to that which is against God and His eternal Word (Daniel 3:16-18). We need this reminder at this time of great deception in our nation, don't we?
