Dear Friend,
A while back I gave a message called The Tipping Point. In it, I said that, apart from revival, America's moral and spiritual descent would rapidly increase.

In mid-summer of this year an event took place of extreme moral, spiritual, and prophetic significance with far-reaching ramifications. The United States Supreme Court struck down the central core of the Defense of Marriage Act (D.O.M.A.). What was the Defense of Marriage Act? It was the act passed by Congress in 1996 which simply stated that for the Federal Government, marriage is the union of a man and a woman. In fact, it did nothing but recognize what had always been the definition of marriage since the beginning of civilization. But this summer, that basic universal definition was struck down.
In the short-run, the ruling means that the Federal Government will recognize gay marriages performed in the states which have legalized it. But in the long-run, the ramifications are much greater. The ruling declared homosexuality to be a constitutionally and governmentally protected right. This will set the legal framework for the legalization of gay marriage across America.
But the ruling went even farther. It declared that the drawing of distinctions between marriage as we have always known it and gay unions is to "demean," "humiliate," and "injure." Thus, those who draw such distinctions, meaning every Bible believing Christian are according to the United States government, those who demean, humiliate, and harm. Thus, Christians are now defined as those who cause harm to society. We must realize this fact. If a nation is going to redefine morality, then it will also end up redefining us.
Even Supreme Court Justice, Anthony Scalia, writing the opinion of the four justices who dissented, realized the ominous ramifications. He wrote this:
I promise you this: The only thing that will "confine" the Court's holding is its sense of what it can get away with. It is one thing for a society to elect change; it is another for a court of law to impose change by adjudging those who oppose it hostes humani generis, enemies of the human race.
Justice Scalia was looking at the big picture and the long run. And he was prophesying, specifically, that the ruling would not be the end of the issue but the beginning. It won't stop. And there will be another side to it -- namely that those who don't agree but who simply hold to what has always been the definition of marriage, those who hold to biblical values will be deemed humani generes, enemies of the human race.
In other words, as the prophets of ancient times pointed out, when sin is called righteousness, and darkness light, then the righteous will be called evil and the light darkness. In other words -- persecution. It's all happening with increasing speed. Are we ready?
We must look back to the days of Elijah, a man whom an apostate civilization redefined as a "troubler of Israel." And yet he would not be able to find his identity in his times or in the opinions of man but only in his relationship to God. And he would not compromise or bend, but instead be a sign to a darkened age of the light of truth. Let us do likewise, and may He bless and anoint you as you do.
This month, be a strong, undivided, and powerful witness to the Almighty, and may He bless and anoint you as you do.

Your brother and co-laborer,
in His love and service,
