Jesus Still Reigns: A Biblical Response to “Same-Sex Marriage”

As the celebrations over the SCOTUS decision to redefine marriage die down, it’s always good remind ourselves that the heavenly host have been worshipping and adoring God for Millenia and will continue forever as Jesus’ Kingdom comes to consume the entire earth.

Love won a long time ago on the cross and it was a far more greater love than the self serving, doublespeak “love” we hear about in the news and see in our Hollywood films.

The following teaching by Dr. Corey Abney is an encouraging slap in the face of disheartenment and apathy, rousing the church to set our eyes upon the eternal hope and glory that will fill creation long after the small blip in history where “homosexual marriage” was a thing.

Consider this powerful statement and watch the teaching below:

“Listen, our saviour reigns and rules on the throne and I assure you that today his kingdom is just as intact as it was on Thursday afternoon. I can assure you that he is still reigning and ruling on high and that every single person that has ever lived on this earth will at some point in the future will bow the knee and confess that Jesus Christ is lord for the glory of God the Father.”

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (‭Philippians‬ ‭2‬:‭1-11‬ ESV)
