Is the Gay Pride Ever Mentioned in the Bible?

By the end of this month, the whole world will be celebrating the Gay Pride. In many big cities, they will have big festivities like the Gay Pride Parade.

What is Gay Pride and how did it start? Is it ever prophesied in the Bible at all? Gay Pride has a young history. About.com answers what is Gay Pride:

Gay Pride is a movement that celebrates the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered (GLBT) community. This movement emerged in the 1960s. It came out of a time when mainstream society tended to view being GLBT as something shameful or inferior to being heterosexual.

The term "Pride" was deliberately chosen counter the idea that there was something embarrassing or wrong with being gay.

Prior to the Gay Pride, the LGBT community was considered outcasts. They hide their true identity because they fear public ridicule and being mocked in the society.

In the website http://gaylife.about.com, this is how it related the history of the Gay Pride:

After the Stonewall riots in 1969, many LGBT people—even those that did not witness the rebellion—were inspired to contribute to the cause. Gay rights had entered the national spotlight. LGBT people began organizing, protesting and mobilizing. On July 4, 1970, a year after the Stonewall riots, the Mattachine Society along with Frank Kameny, Craig Rodwell, Randy Wicker, Barbara Gittings, Kay Lahusen and many others, picketed in front of Independence Hall in Philadelphia in what was called the Annual Reminder. The protest was quiet and organized to the dismay of Craig Rodwell who felt Frank Kemeny and Mattachine's methods of calm protest were not enough.

Rodwell returned to New York City and organized Christopher Street Liberation Day. The march, held on June 28, 1970, was the first gay pride march in the U.S., covering 51 blocks from Christopher Street to Central Park. Today, LGBT pride parades are held annually in multiple cities and countries throughout the world. The month of June is widely considered Gay Pride Month.


The Stonewall Inn where the Gay Pride began in June 28, 1969.

The Stonewall riot is referring to the gays' uprising that happened in June 28, 1969 at small Stonewall Inn located in New York City. Wikipedia tells that story:

Early on the morning of Saturday, 28 June 1969, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning persons rioted following a police raid on the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City. The Stonewall Inn was a gay bar which catered to an assortment of patrons, but which was popular with the most marginalized people in the gay community: transvestites, transgender people, effeminate young men, hustlers, and homeless youth. The Stonewall riots are generally considered to be the beginning of the modern gay rights movement, as it was the first time in modern history that a significant body of LGBT people resisted arrest.

So we need to remember three things here. First, the Gay Pride has a young history, only started in June 28, 1969. Second, it started in the United States specifically in New York City. The problem now is how to find this event in the Bible. If the Bible is divinely inspired, and God did abhor the strange flesh within these peoples, then this global disease should have been recorded. This will prove how accurate the Bible is in prophesying events in modern history.

In the Bible, the first encounter with gays or homosexual with godly men was recorded in the Book of Genesis. Let me relate the story about an ancient city of Sodom.

Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the LORD (Gen 13:13).

Why is the city so wicked? Sodom was an ancient city where the first case of gays encounter can be found. The word "sodomy" was originated from this ancient city to mean committing sex with with a member of the same or opposite sex. Here is the a biblical proof of Sodom's sin of sodomy written in detail with emphasis mine.

Gen 19:1-11
The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. "My lords," he said, "please turn aside to your servant's house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning."
"No," they answered, "we will spend the night in the square."

But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom — both young and old — surrounded the house. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them."

Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing. Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don't do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof."

"Get out of our way," they replied. And they said, "This fellow came here as an alien, and now he wants to play the judge! We'll treat you worse than them." They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.

But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.

So here, we can see how indeed wicked the city was. There was another city nearby, the City of Gomorrah which was also a wicked city like Sodom. They openly practice their wickedness, young and old alike. Nothing can stop them from doing what they want even to strangers and they came in drove and force. In the New testament, the apostle Jude wrote about these two cities. It mentioned the third sex as strange flesh:

Jude 7
Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

These two cities later were burned to the ground because of their sins. God rained fire on them that nobody survived except Lot and his two daughters.

Gen 19:24-26
Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah — from the LORD out of the heavens. Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, including all those living in the cities — and also the vegetation in the land.

Today, those two cities can still be seen as building ruins made of ashes and sulfur. Visit arkdiscovery.com for a view of the ruins of these two cities.


The ancient ruins of Sodom as can still be seen today.

Back to the question, where in the Bible can we find the Gay Pride, the modern version of Sodom? In our age, the sin is more widespread and if God is to judge us this hour, He will do the same thing as He did with those two ancient cities.

First, let us understand that the modern day Egypt is the United States of America. Read chapters 1 and 2 of my book, The Omega Days for detailed explanation. But here is the brief summary. Joseph, once a high official in ancient Egypt and one of the twelve tribes of Israel had two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, the elder being Manasseh. They were both raised in Egypt, their mother was an Egyptian, Asenath. Manasseh being the elder was supposed to be the recipient of the birthright aspect of the Great Promise to Abraham that was passed on to his descendants through the firstborn to become the most powerful and wealthy nations of the world. However, Manasseh did not received this birthright promise but was given to Ephraim, the younger. Nevertheless, Manasseh was also promised greatness and wealth although less than his younger brother who in the later days, is to become the community of nations, the most powerful and wealthiest nations on earth. Now Manasseh is the U.S. and Ephraim is the European Community. Today, as a group of nations, the EU is the wealthiest in the world, and second is the United States to fulfill the prophecies about them. Manasseh is the modern day Egypt, being the firstborn, since he was also an Egyptian by blood. So, all prophecies in the Bible about Egypt pertains to the U.S.A.

Now turn your Bibles to the Book of Revelation. Yes, the Gay Pride was written in the Scriptures. This is the prophecy about the Gay Pride, emphasis mine.

Rev 11:7-8
Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them. Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.

This a passage that refers to the Two Witnesses who will prepare the way for the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. They will come during the time of the Antichrist who will rule the world with iron rod. He will set his throne "between the seas," that is, in the U.S.A. in New York City. The nation is between two oceans, the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. The ports of New York City and New Jersey are the modern day version of the ancient ports of Tyre and Sidon. Please read chapter 6 and 7 of the book. Satan was prophesied as the King of Tyre in book of Ezekiel 28. Satan who will be living as Antichrist shall soon be sitting in New York City, the marketplace of nations.


Gay Pride Parade in New York City 2008. Even the Church is guilty of this sin.

In Rev 11:7-8, it mentions about the death of the Two Witnesses having been killed by the Antichrist. One of them will die in Jerusalem, where Jesus Christ was crucified and the other is to die in a place that is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt. I have mentioned and the Bible confirms that prophecies about Egypt pertains to the USA. Now Sodom names that specific place in the U.S.A., the modern day Sodom. We already know in recent history that the modern day Sodom is the New York City since it is the place where the Gay Pride had originated from. One of the Two Witnesses, identified as reincarnated Moses will be in New York City in the last days proclaiming the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. He will send plagues as he did in old Egypt. He will prepare the elect for the modern day version of Exodus. The Antichrist will kill him only to resurrect in the third day and then the Day of The Lord begins.

We see in the big cities everywhere about big preparations being made for the big event over all the world we call Gay Pride Parade. Just few days ago, last June 24, 2011, New York has just legalized the same sex marriage. Many nations already did but New York is the most populous state in the U.S. or the world to embrace same sex marriage. There was a great euphoria about this as this statement from Reuters says:

Waves of gay couples rushed on Saturday to make wedding plans that had been dreams for decades, as euphoria over New York's legalization of same-sex marriage promised to turn a traditional pride parade into an enormous roving engagement party.

In the minutes and hours after the law was passed and signed by Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo late on Friday, sparkling rings were offered and accepted and champagne corks flew to kick off wedding plans likely to add an estimated $284 million to the state's economy, according to a report by the Independent Democratic Conference.

The report estimated more than 21,000 gay and lesbian couples from New York would marry within the first three years and nearly 42,000 gay and lesbian couples from out of state would travel to New York for a "destination wedding."

I see this developments as one of the signs that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming very soon. Let us not fall into the trap by the Devil. God loves us all and treats everybody equal. He wants us all to become His children. He just does not like the sin in us, that strange flesh that infected so many people today.

Let all the people who were born in the "third sex" to deny their fleshly nature and come to Christ and be transformed into renewing the minds and spirit. Everything is possible with Jesus Christ.

Let all be filled with holiness and be a part of the the community of Christians.

In order for you to get saved and become a Christian please follow these simple steps.
