Romans 1: RUN from the PROGRESSION OF SIN!!

A few years back I dreamed I had my laptop open and my children were watching cartoons on it. Then some homosexual propaganda came on the screen so I closed it quickly. As soon as I closed the laptop, forceful homosexuals were knocking hard, banging on my door trying to get in to indoctrinate my children with their agenda.  I looked at my husband and told him we had to RUN! We ran out of the house through another door or window. We were running with our children as fast as we could.We came to a Ford dealership, and the only way to escape the homosexuals chasing us was to purchase a 15 passenger van. My husband signed the papers and we bought the van and we were safe.

Sounds weird right? How can buying a van save us from indoctrination of the culture? Well, large families buy 15 passenger vans, you only need one of those when you have a lot of people to transport. Us buying a 15 passenger van represents us having lots of children. Having as many children as God desires to give us represents us submitting to Gods command to nature to be fruitful and multiply. So the van represents submission to God’s natural law, natural order. Submitting to God’s commands/order/natural law saves you from being overtaken by the strong delusion of iniquity forcefully overtaking the earth.

See, sin is progressive. Romans 1 illustrates this VERY well.

Romans 1: 18-32 

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

The Unrighteous men this chapter speaks of progressed into darkness bit by bit.

*First, they chose not to honor God, though they know He exists by the things He has made.

*Their hearts became dark, puffed up in their own wisdom they become fools

*The foolishness leads to idolatry

*Idolatry leads to the worship of man, worshiping the creature more than the Creator

*The worship of creation leads to vile affections – homosexuality

*Homosexuality opens the door to all manner of evil

All of this could have been avoided had God been worshiped as God, His existence being clearly seen and understood by the amazing things He has made. But the reason why people invent so many different ways to escape from honoring God and choose NOT to retain Him in their knowledge (what they believe and teach), is simply because they do not want to obey Him. So they create a way out.

Honoring God as the Creator, means honoring His ability and right to create life. Receiving children in your marriage when God chooses to give them is one of the ways we as Christians should honor God as Creator, and submit to Him and His natural order, and escape our hearts being darkened by iniquity. Resisting the truth of God and His leadership, leads to following and believing lies in many different ways.

Resist the devil and cause him to flee, honor God and His natural laws, His ability to create life, and His authority over creation, and be set free from the yoke of sin and being overtaken by the darkness of this age.

Amen.
