ISRAEL - Thousands of bare-chested muscular men , drag queens in heavy makeup & high heels , women in colourful balloon costumes & others partied at Tel Aviv's annual gay pride parade on Friday , the largest event of its kind in the region. Well over 100,000 people were participating in the parade , police said , while Israeli media put the number at 180,000. The event also drew thousands of people from around the world. Large sections of Tel Aviv were shut for traffic & loud music blasted along the parade's route. Streets were packed thick with people waving rainbow flags & dancing. The theme of this year's parade , which was the city's biggest ever, was " Tel Aviv loves all genders.” Israel has emerged as one of the world's most gay-friendly travel destinations in recent years , in sharp contrast to the rest of the Middle East where gay culture is not tolerated & gays are persecuted & even killed.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - What must God think of this ? This is Sodom & Gomorrah resurrected in ' His ' land. How far removed are these scenes in Israel compared to the future scenes in the same place when Christ rules in righteousness from Jerusalem. Homosexual behaviour ( & promotion of it ) is one of the greatest signs we have of the nearness of our Lord’s return. It is singled out in the New Testament as being a sign that God has been rejected. In Romans 1 we read that mankind is ' without excuse ' for everyone can see that God has created the world when we look at the evidence around us. But because people would not worship God their minds became dark & confused. So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things they desired. Men burned with lust for other men & women for other women. Judgement therefore is coming . . .
ROMANS 1 v 25-27 ( NLT ) - They worshiped the things God created , instead of the Creator himself. That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex & instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men , instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, & as a result of this sin , they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.
