Scripture: 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 dictates what type of people we have to be in these last days. It says, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.” We should especially note in verse 11 that it clearly says, “And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.” I Corinthians makes it clear that people who apparently believe they were born homosexual in fact found out that they were changed. They were changed because they chose to be washed. They chose to be sanctified and they chose to be justified in the name of the Lord. And they chose to walk out of it. We need to pray for a harvest out of the homosexual community and that God will raise up mighty, anointed men and women who have the testimony, “such were some of you.” Believing for anything less is really cheating a generation of the salvation that has been bought and paid for them. God is going to have a harvest of Muslims in the last days so we need to be prepared to love Muslims. He is going to have a harvest out of the homosexual community. We need to be prepared for that harvest. We need to prepare our hearts and build our faith to work with God to gather it in. We cannot do that by agreeing or even being passive with a Supreme Court decision that approves of what God does not approve. We will never get the needed harvest by caving in on boundaries. We must uphold God’s boundaries even if being confrontational is not comfortable and even if the culture of our day labels us intolerant. The salvation of those loved, yet broken may very well depend on it. God’s people need to love enough to be the vehicle to speak and pray truth. Will we be the ones? I trust we will!
