“Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours. And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him. And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more. And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed: For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf. And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words. And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth? And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.” (Genesis 37:3-11)
All of us are Unique. That is why God deals with us on an individual basis. Joseph had two Dreams, but I had the same Dream for about a year. From Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s. “I Have A Dream” Speech it sounds like he had multiple Dreams. My Dream had my Answer, Promise and Instructions. I said in my “Agendas!” Blog “My daily Bible reading shows our Acts of Faith for “God’s Process” (Posted at this Website) are not always honorable.” Sometimes our Acts of Faith are even forced on us. My Resurrection Level Act of Faith was forced:
“And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they conspired against him to slay him. And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh. Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams. And Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands; and said, Let us not kill him. And Reuben said unto them, Shed no blood, but cast him into this pit that is in the wilderness, and lay no hand upon him; that he might rid him out of their hands, to deliver him to his father again. And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stripped Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him; And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it. And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmeelites came from Gilead with their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt. And Judah said unto his brethren, What profit is it if we slay our brother, and conceal his blood? Come, and let us sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our hand be upon him; for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brethren were content. Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt. And Reuben returned unto the pit; and, behold, Joseph was not in the pit; and he rent his clothes. And he returned unto his brethren, and said, The child is not; and I, whither shall I go? And they took Joseph’s coat, and killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the coat in the blood; And they sent the coat of many colours, and they brought it to their father; and said, This have we found: know now whether it be thy son’s coat or no. And he knew it, and said, It is my son’s coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces. And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and mourned for his son many days. And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him. And the Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh’s, and captain of the guard.” (Genesis 37:18-36)
We must be careful about who we share our Dream with. People will hate you for your Dream “he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.” We must share it because that shows God we have “Received” the Dream and we “Believe” the Dream.
I receive e-mails from around 20 different news sources. I read more Titles than actual Articles. The Title, “Pat Robertson: Gays Will Force Christians To Like Anal Sex And, Eventually, Polyamory And Bestiality” really bothered me. (Article posted @ Facebook and Twitter)
The “Force Christians To Like” is what bothered me so I read the article to see if Robertson really said that:
Right-wing televangelist Pat Robertson tackled the recent controversy over Memories Pizza, which became Indiana’s first business to publicly declare that they won’t cater to same-sex weddings in the wake of the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act this week.
“Most gays, if they’re having a wedding, don’t want pizzas -- they want cake,” Robertson told “700 Club” viewers, according to Right Wing Watch. “It’s the cake-makers that are having a problem.”
Still, he warned Christian business owners of all types that gay customers will eventually “make you conform to them.”
“You’re gonna say that you like anal sex, you like oral sex, you like bestiality,” he added. “Sooner or later, you’re going to have to conform your religious beliefs to the group of some abhorrent thing. It won’t stop at homosexuality.”
Noting that Christian beliefs will “come under assault” until polyamory and polygamy are acceptable, too, Robertson lamented, “It’s a weird world we’re living in.”
The comments aren’t too surprising, particularly given Robertson’s recent history of anti-gay sentiments. In February, he argued that a Washington state judge’s ruling that a florist had discriminated against a gay couple by refusing to provide flowers for their wedding was also indicative of society’s eventual embrace of bestiality.
He asked, “To tell a florist that she’s got to provide flowers for a particular kind of wedding? What if somebody wanted to marry his dog? She’s got to have flowers for that?”
“Make you conform to them” the devil is a liar! “People must Stop making same-sex marriage about Discrimination!” Blog I said, “If a bakery does not want to create a cake with two men on it find another bakery that will. Why do homosexuals always have to force homosexuality down people’s throat?” If homosexuals were not trying to force homosexuality down people’s throat they would just find a bakery that would. “Forcing homosexuality down people’s throat” is the problem and what suing a person is about.
Same-sex marriage does open the door for everything else like “Polyamory And Bestiality.” It will only keep getting worse as long as that same-sex marriage door is allowed to stay open. Now that homosexuals are coming out of the closet they are taking all of that “having to be in the closet built up anger” against people. Now that homosexuals are coming out of the closet they want people to accept everything they want to do including changing the First Covenant God Ordained, which was Marriage.
That is what people must take a “Stand” against especially the church. Same-sex marriage is putting God’s Name to homosexuality. The church must put a STOP to God’s Name being put to homosexuality. Unfortunately the church is doing more embracing than stopping.
Because of the world we live in we must draw “Lines.” People are not getting better, but getting worse. I would NOT go to a same-sex marriage ceremony or to a baptism of a baby of a same-sex couple. Marriage and Baptism belong to God. I would go to a homosexual birthday party. The “Line” people must draw is anything belonging to God. Because I draw a “Line” does not mean I am against homosexuals. Homosexuals act like because people are against same-sex marriage they are against homosexuals too, which is not the case. People are turning against homosexuals because they keep trying to force homosexuality down people’s throat and act like no one has any rights but them.
Homosexuals are trying to make themselves a “class” of people like homosexuality is something special. Because they are trying to make themselves a “class” of people is why they keep calling it discrimination. That is also why they keep comparing homosexuality to racism. Racism and homosexuality are two different things and one has NOTHING to do with the other.
There is always a “Prelude” before God. John the Baptist was the “Prelude” before Jesus. The Flood, Jesus’ Resurrection, and “The Re-Birth Of Christianity” (Posted at this Website) was the “Prelude” before “The Rapture.”
This battle, which comes down to “for God” or “against God” of good and evil is the “Prelude” before Armageddon. People for same-sex marriage are “against God.” Being for same-sex marriage is taking the “Stand” God did not know what He was doing when He Ordained His First Covenant of Marriage for a man and a woman.
Homosexuals “Force Christians To Like” is totally different than “Forcing homosexuality down people’s throat.” When people “Like” something that means that is what they want to do. That means people are not “Force.” Homosexuals cannot be blamed for “Christians” doing what they “Like” to do. People cannot retire from who they are, but people must know when the capacity they are operating in needs to change.
Our “Answer” to our Question from God will always be in a Dream. Our “Promise” and our “Instructions” may not be. Solomon’s “Instructions” came from his father David:
“Then David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the porch, and of the houses thereof, and of the treasuries thereof, and of the upper chambers thereof, and of the inner parlours thereof, and of the place of the mercy seat, And the pattern of all that he had by the spirit, of the courts of the house of the Lord, and of all the chambers round about, of the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries of the dedicated things:” (I Chronicles 28:11-12)
If people have not had their Dream they must seek God for it. People also must be filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit navigates us through God’s Process. People know they are filled with the Holy Spirit by the Voice of God. After the Holy Spirit Speaks He always takes us to the Word of God. The Word of God is the Final Authority. Searching out our Dream is how we get to our Purpose.
THE LINES WE DRAW REPRESENTS OUR STANDARDS.
