In the latest issue of the “Christian Chronicle”, an individual, in reference to SCOTUS’s decision concerning the “constitutionality” of homosexual marriages (and whose state had already began the process of legally recognizing homosexual marriages before June 26, 2015) was quoted as saying that the sky hadn’t fallen because homosexual marriages had been legalized. Perhaps I’m missing the sky for the clouds, but his comment, at least to me, sounded like a marginalization of the situation that was made toward any “chicken little” who warned about the seriousness of what was happening and what will happen because of America’s decision that day.
Yeah, the world is still ticking after June 26, 2015. People are still are going to work. People are being born. People are dying. People are even eating, drinking and, yes, people are even getting married! But this is true because of God’s long-suffering toward sin and his desire for our repentance from it (2 Peter 3:9); not because of some marginalization of its seriousness; and June 26, 2015 was a serious day with serious spiritual ramifications.
Fact is, for those who are familiar enough with the pictures of Revelation, cultures and kings, nations and economies, and even the “sky” itself can be in the process of falling without anyone outside of Heaven’s perspective even realizing it. And furthermore, I would remind people that it took a while for the raindrops of Noah’s day to reach the ground, but once that sky started falling there was no turning back, nor did all the water come from above. But that’s a whole other rainbow pride type of conversation.
So who says the sky isn’t falling? I don’t know. But what I do know is that I wouldn’t confuse our view of looking up for God’s view of looking down.
“For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Matthew 24:38-39
