I’ve been thinking about the signs of the times. Is same-sex marriage a sign of the age?
What will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus was asked by his disciples. His reply is in Matthew 24.
For signs, Jesus referenced Noah; “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” Matthew 24:37-39
Years ago I took it to mean that the end of the age would be unexpected. Otherwise, how could life be going on as normal with people partying and getting married? And wasn’t marriage a moral thing to do?
Now that same-sex marriage has “queered the pitch,” so to speak, I’m wondering what kind of marriages Jesus was talking about.
But I don’t think the moral slide will end at gay marriage. I’m sure there’ll be polygamy and polyamory and God knows what else.
What was going on in the days of Noah? Genesis 6 records strange marriages that produced Nephilim and resulted in so much wickedness that it brought on the flood of Noah.
In Noah’s time, the rainbow followed judgment. In our time, will judgment follow the rainbow?
By the way, a few things have been stolen here – like the rainbow, the word ‘gay,‘ and the marriage covenant.
The rainbow I’m talking about is not the same as the one we see in the sky after rain. In the gay community, the rainbow is six colours. Their intention was to have a flag with eight colours – turquoise for magic/art and pink for sex. These were abandoned because it was too expensive to replicate and pink is not a natural colour. It’s a combination of red and violet, at opposite ends of the rainbow.
Gay used to be happy and carefree.
The marriage covenant is defined in the Bible (Genesis 2:24, Ephesians 5:31 and by Jesus in Matthew 19:5) as the woman and man being “one flesh.” In the Bible, Sodom and Gomorrah serve as an example of what happens when cities go after “strange flesh.” Jude 1:7 Is it a warning we should take note of?
