Heal Our Land – The Saturday Morning Post by Pastor Ted Stahl

Good morning. I just read a little news blurb on the internet. It said that England was ready to pass a bill okaying gay marriages. And guess who one (or rather two) of the supporters are. Ben and Jerry, of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream. If they are supporting gay marriage over there, they are probably supporting it over here. Marriage is between a man and a woman.

God did not make them that way. Homosexuality is not a disease, it’s a decision just like any other sin. Romans chapter one calls it vile affection. They decided that they did not want to retain God in their knowledge. Leviticus 18:22, 20:13, and 1Kings 14:24 call it abomination. How could the sodomite make the right decision if he doesn’t know the truth. If he does not know the truth, how can he be expected to make the correct choice? Proverbs 6 gives us seven other abominations. Ever tell a lie?

These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” (Proverbs 6:16-19).

When you look down your nose at someone who does not know any better, or a person lost in sin, remember what Jesus said, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8).

You see there is only one sin not covered by the blood of Calvary. Jesus said, “Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation…” (Mark 3:28-29)

If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1John 1:10).

All I’m saying is that when you start to judge somebody, remember where you came from. Homosexuality and telling a “little white lie” are both abominations to God. We are all sinners (Romans 3:10 & 23). But Jesus loved us enough to take the punishment that was made for us on Himself (John 3:16 & Romans 5:8).

Our government is in trouble. Everyone one is trying to be politically correct, and not God correct – truthful. We need God’s help. A good prayer for our nation is brought forth from Psalm 85…

To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob. Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah. Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger. Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease. Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations? Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation. I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly. Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land. Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven. Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase. Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.”

Yes, truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven. Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase. But, best of all, He will set us in the way of His steps.

Peace. (2Chronicles 7:14).
