How same-sex marriage points to
end of the world
By Janet Folger
What do May 17, 2004, and May 15, 2008, have in common? One judge and a redefinition of marriage against the will of the people.
Both the Massachusetts Superior Court and the California Supreme Court by a one-judge margin redefined what marriage has always been in every culture and every religion for more than 5,000 years of recorded history.
Why does this matter?
As I wrote about in my book, "The Criminalization of Christianity," Jeffrey Satinover, who holds an M.D. from Princeton and doctorates from Yale, MIT and Harvard, was on my radio program one day and I asked him about where we are in history. He explained that according to the "Babylonian Talmud" – the book of rabbis' interpretation of the scriptures 1,000 years before Christ, there was only one time in history that reflects where we are right now. There was only one time in history, according to these writings, where men were given in marriage to men, and women given in marriage to women.
Want to venture a guess as to when? No, it wasn't in Sodom and Gomorrah, although that was my guess. Homosexuality was rampant there, of course, but according to the Talmud, not homosexual "marriage." What about ancient Greece? Rome? No. Babylon? No again. The one time in history when homosexual "marriage" was practiced was … during the days of Noah. And according to Satinover, that's what the "Babylonian Talmud" attributes as the final straw that led to the Flood.
On my radio program on Thursday, Rabbi Aryeh Spero verified this to be true.
Rabbi Spero spoke of God's compassion before the Flood, in hopes people would repent and turn back to His ways. He showed patience for hundreds of years.
But, he said, the Talmud's writings reveal that "before the Flood people started to write marriage contracts between men, in other words, homosexual 'marriage,' which is more than homosexual activity – it's giving an official state stamp of approval, a sanctification … of homosexual partnership."
In fact, he said, "the writings indicated that it wasn't even so much the 'straw that broke the camel's back,' but that the sin in and of itself is so contrary to why God created the world, so contrary to the order of God's nature, that God said then and there 'I have to start all over … to annihilate the world and start from the beginning. …'"
Rabbi Spero went on to say, "Even in ancient Greece they did not write marriage contracts between men. There was homosexuality, and it was wrong, but there was not an official 'blessed' policy. … Marriage is 'sanctification' (not simply a partnership)." He said to confer the title of sanctification and holiness upon this behavior is "probably one of the greatest sins of all that one does against God's plan for this world."
The one time it happened was: "During the days of Noah." When I first heard this, my mind immediately went to a verse I've heard many times but never with such relevance. The verse is found in Matthew 24:37. It reads:
As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. – Mathew 24:37 (NIV)
I used to read this verse and think: It was bad at lots of points in history; it doesn't necessarily mean now, but if these Jewish writings are true, we are uniquely like the "days of Noah" right now – and only right now.
But it can't be yet, you say. You have a lot going on in your life? You're getting married? Here's how the New Living Translation describes that very sentiment in Luke:
When the Son of Man returns, the world will be like the people were in Noah's day. In those days before the Flood, the people enjoyed banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat, and the flood came to destroy them all. – Luke 17:26-27. Happily going about as if everything was fine was what they did, too.
You don't like this possibility? Don't even believe in the Flood? Doesn't matter. Some things are true whether you believe them or not. How can you be sure? There's a way. Did you know that about one-fourth of the Bible is prophecy? A quarter of the Bible is a lot – it's a big book. And did you know God's standard? Perfection. That means that if even one of those prophecies is wrong, you can discount the whole thing. Kind of like a prophet who makes a false prediction – that made him a false prophet and a candidate for stoning. Did you know that 4,000 prophecies in that Bible have already come true down to the last detail? That leaves about 1,000 left to be fulfilled – those are the ones regarding the last days before the return of Christ, which are being checked off the list right now.
If 4,000 out of 5,000 prophecies have already occurred exactly as the Bible predicted they would, you might want to pay attention to the rest.
The good news is that 1.1 million people across California have signed a petition to bring marriage to a vote of the people through a state constitutional amendment (just like 27 other states have done). And guess what? An amendment to a state constitution trumps even the most out-of-control state judiciary. We'll likely know if these signatures are validated before this tyrannical ruling goes into effect, and I predict they will be since they gathered 400,000 more signatures more than they needed to qualify. Besides, they already voted – eight years ago where more than 61 percent of Californians declared marriage as the union of a man and a woman. Now they just need to turn that same language into a constitutional amendment.
I don't live in California, so why am I sounding the alarm? Here's why:
But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand. – Ezekiel 33:6
I'm praying and working to protect marriage not only because I care about marriage, but because I care about civilization. And, if we obey God, he just may spare us from the judgment we deserve.

There are many blatantly satanic ideas and principles creeping
into our once Christian society which should be obvious to even a lukewarm
Christian. The fact that Christians are not outraged by these ideas makes a
statement that we have become frogs. What am I talking about? If we place a frog
into a pan of boiling water that frog will jump right out. On the other hand if
that same frog is placed into a pan of cold water it will sit right there as the
temperature under that pan is raised little by little, until it finally boils to
death. Many Christians today are just like that frog, never feeling the heat
increasing until it’s too late.
What we see happening in California didn’t just happen yesterday. The Californians have been sitting in that same pot as the heat has been slowly increased for years now. A short while back they began to get a little uncomfortable with the situation so they had a legal vote and passed an amendment that stated that marriage between one man and one woman was the only recognizable marital union in the state, effectively stopping the forward motion of the homosexual agenda, they thought. Then, just a few weeks ago, the California Supreme Court struck down the state’s ban on same sex marriages. Four black-robed justices declared the ban unconstitutional and overrode the California voter’s decision to ban same sex marriages. The heat’s being raised in California and it won’t be much longer before the water is at a boiling point. Is it too late? Only Californians can answer that. As a native Californian I feel I have the expertise to address this subject here in my commentary. Although my family and I left California fourteen years ago, I still consider it my home state.
The powers to be have turned to same sex marriages to get them out of their state’s terrible economic fiasco. I’m sure you’ve all heard the story of the man who sold his soul to the devil for wealth, but as he began to enjoy his new lifestyle Satan takes his life from him. After all, he didn’t ask for long life, just wealth. California has sold her soul to the devil and is now headed for a real heat death.
Here’s a scenario for you: What would we do if government representatives came to our door and took our children away to sell them into prostitution as a solution to the economic woes in our country? Would we just sit there in our easy chair while our precious children were removed from our homes? Or what if they were taken to a government indoctrination center where they would be brain washed into believing one of Satan’s biggest lies? Would we just sit idly by as the Californians on a whole have done? Californians have allowed the homosexual agenda into their public run schools, effectively allowing the indoctrination of their children into believing that lifestyle to be an appropriate and completely morally sanctioned government supported lifestyle. And almost simultaneously banning the reading or even the passion of a Bible in our public schools.
It’s been said “As California goes, so goes the rest of the nation”. Is your state next? No matter what state you live in I can guarantee you the homosexual agenda is in the works. All they needed was for California to cave in to the pressures of this satanic agenda and sooner or later all the rest will follow.
Another little tidbit of information: Most prophecy experts see no reference to America in what is called the end time scenario. What we do see from studying our history books is that every great society such as the Greek and Roman empires collapsed as they embraced homosexuality as a normal lifestyle. Is that water beginning to boil yet?
As a born again believer in Christ, I know God’s truth quite well. I’ve studied His word for a good many years now, and I know He’s not going to sit idly by while these unbelieving, foolish people destroy what once was the most Christian nation on earth. Something will give, and I suspect it won’t be just the homosexuals that feel the brunt of His wrath.
The Apostle Paul tells us in the book of Romans “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,” Romans 1:32. Condoning the lifestyle of homosexuals and their sick and perverse behavior is the same in God’s eyes as participating in such abominations.
What will people do as they see this terrible curse spread and its tentacles reach into every facet of society? Will there be a ground swell of rebellion arise from the ash heap of what once was a great nation? Or will we as a society just disappear into obscurity? There will come a time when we will see this country so steeped in sin that no Christian will be safe out in public. Those who actively promote the homosexual lifestyle are growing more antagonistic and resentful to Christians day by day. They know their lifestyle is wrong and they know they are wallowing in a cesspool of filth. They also know that the Christians are the only obstacle to a complete, unadulterated, sin-laden society that allows any perverse activity imaginable.
That’s right, my brothers and sisters in Christ. We are an obstacle that must be dealt with before total adherence to the homosexual agenda can be achieved. They (the homosexuals) already know this truth. It’s the God-fearing, God-loving, Jesus-following Christians in this country who for the most part don’t have a clue. We must be removed from the landscape so to speak. After the laws associated with the homosexual agenda in this land are reworked to line up with their perverted agenda, what will they do with us? History shows us that after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941 all the Japanese people in this country, no matter if they were US citizens or not, were rounded up and placed in internment camps. The only difference is this time those rounded up will be the Christians –that is the Christians that won’t toe the line and bow a knee to Baal.
I know what you must be thinking “This guy has gone off the deep end”. There’s no way this country of mine will ever turn into a homosexual nation. If that is your response to my commentary I would suggest you do some investigation of your own. Start with internet news sites and articles then read all the different commentaries you can get your hands on pertaining to this subject. I spent one week gathering information on the Christian persecution coming upon this nation of ours, and at the end of that week I had enough information to write a book. That was just one week’s worth of the persecution I found. All of you reading this commentary should be doing diligent research into the persecution coming upon the Church to discover the truth for yourselves, but don’t take too long. Those on the other side who are gathering in mass are already aware of what must be done and they are working assiduously on accomplishing their goal.
It’s a proven fact that Americans think that tomorrow will be like yesterday, next month will be like last month, and next year will be like last year. If this is your mindset, you my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, are in for a huge awakening. Tomorrow will not be like yesterday; yesterday homosexual marriage was illegal but today men are marrying men and women are marrying women. Can you feel the water temperature rising? Here froggy, froggy, froggy.
From this point on this once great nation of ours will morph into exactly what has been planned for years now, one of the most, if not the most satanic society of all post antediluvian history. Satan is most definitely ecstatic at the progress he and his minions of evil are achieving with almost no resistance.
|God loves homosexuals and so do I. I wish them no
harm. That's why I pray and hope that many homosexuals will learn that Jesus
Christ loves them too and that He alone can
truly offer them a better lifestyle and a happier future by adhering to
His moral standards.
