USA - The Supreme Court today ruled that gay marriage should be allowed across the entire United States, settling once & for all what had been one of America's most divisive social questions. The landmark ruling from America's high court means that all states, even in the deeply conservative South, must allow same-sex couples to marry. The decision was met with cheers & elation from gay rights activists gathered on the marble steps of the Supreme Court but despair from conservative groups. It represents an extraordinary turning point in US history just eleven years after Massachusetts became the first state to allow gay couples to wed. In that time Barack Obama became the first US president to back gay marriage & public opinion shifted rapidly in favour of allowing gays & lesbians to wed. Mr Obama described the ruling as " justice that arrives like a thunderbolt ".

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - The Netherlands was the very first country in history to allow same sex marriage. This was on the 1st April 2001. Since then 18 countries have recognised same sex marriages. The latest is the whole of the United States. What these people forget is that marriage is not a man made institution. Mankind did not invent marriage. It was established by God at the beginning of human history when He " created the heavens & the earth ”. As the Creator of marriage , God has the right to tell us which principles should govern our marital relationships. God created Eve for Adam & said she was a suitable helper for him. God said man would leave his father & mother & be joined to his wife. Genesis 2v24. This is marriage. Obama is right on one point though. Justice will come like a thunderbolt , as it did in the days of Sodom . . .
GENESIS 19 v 24 - Then the LORD rained upon Sodom & upon Gomorrah ' brimstone & fire ' from the LORD out of heaven ; & he overthrew those cities & all the plain & all the inhabitants of the cities & that which grew upon the ground.
The Lord Jesus Christ warned :
LUKE 17 v 28-30 - Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot ; they did eat , they drank , they bought , they sold , they planted , they builded ; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire & brimstone from heaven & destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
