“So God created man in His image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them.” (Gen 1:27)
“God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply” (Gen 1:28)
“God saw everything THAT HE HAD MADE, and indeed it was very good”. (Gen 1:31)
When men and women come together, they, and only this combination, can produce children and multiply.
And the enemy has attacked and twisted these, clear as day, foundational truths.
He has attacked marriage. He has perverted and twisted sexuality. He has even convinced many that God cannot determine if they are male or female and that they can decide that for themselves.
Let’s see this gender identity issue as what it is—that which God created shaking its fist at the Creator!
God warns, “ Woe to him who strives with him who formed him,” (Isa 45:9)
Our culture has bought into this rebellion. In a recent article in Medical News Today, ludicrously it is stated, “Only the person themselves can determine what their gender identity is.”
Those who say this are, in essence, rebelliously saying, “I determine my gender. Not God.”
“I decide if I identify as a man or woman.” That can even change back and forth based on feelings. (these call themselves, “gender fluid”)
Some say, “I can identify as BOTH male and female.” They call themselves “binary” and insist others use they/them pronouns.
And it goes on from there, pangender, genderqueer,…..
The categories expand daily and are too much to keep up with.
He is long suffering with our rebellion that has come in some pretty ridiculous forms since He created us.
Man has tried to be their own god since the beginning. We’ve gone our own way. We have all tried to control what we cannot control.
But deep down, we know we really aren’t in charge. Regardless of what we call ourselves, the Creator calls the shots.
“The truth is the truth even if no one believes it. A lie is a lie even if everyone believes it.” (Stevens)
A biological man can call himself a woman all day long, he can take hormones and have surgeries, but his body will never, ever birth a baby.
Our culture has made this statement controversial and try to cancel and control those who disagree.
The truth is, we are not in control whether we admit it or not. We can’t even control our next breath. The writer of Hebrews tells us it is appointed (by God) once a man to die and after this the judgment. (Heb 9:27)
We can shake our little fists at God and live like we are going to live forever, but all of us know this is not true.
One day we will die. One day the Creator of the Universe, who created us male and female, will judge His creation.
And while some carry their flags and wear their rebellion on the outside, so very proudly, others are equally, rebellious. They just choose to hide it.
For all who have rebelliously refused to surrender to Jesus as Lord will hear the terrible words “depart from me, I never knew you” (Matt 7:23)
For the God who created the Heavens and Earth and mankind, has done and will do all He says in His Word.
The time is coming of His return. The crazier this world looks, the sooner this seems.
Do you, who God chose of all His creation to bear the His image, do you know Your Maker?
I’m not asking if you just know about Him. Is He Lord of your life?
Do you love Him? If so, follow Him and give glory to Him! (See James 2-19-20, John 14:15, Matt 16:24-26)
