Why homosexual marriage cannot be recognized by God.

 My intent with this writing is to illustrate, bring to light, and make known to all who have ears to hear,  that the original intent of marriage was, and  is, only and ever to be between two opposite genders for the purpose of creating one new flesh, a child, to guarantee the continuation of mankind and his destiny.

The governments of men can create all kinds of rules and laws but that does not make those laws right or reflective of eternal truth. During the time of the Roman Empire the Caesars worshipped false gods and some of them required the people to worship them as a god as well. Slavery at times and in certain nations has been legal as well. Some slaves have had great masters while others have had abusive masters. We find slavery throughout the biblical narrative and even though it was never God's plan yet we see God still working through and around many of these issues to bring back mankind to His plan and his grace.  When two people of the same gender commit their lives together, adopt children together, share assets together and build a life together, they can technically share some of the attributes of a marriage but it can never actually be a marriage because there is never a biblical shedding of blood.

              In Genesis 2:24-25 God declared the reason and purpose of marriage: It was the coming together of two opposite genders of mankind to become one flesh. The results of this one new flesh would produce the fruit of the womb (children). Within God's framework of marriage there are several aspects that the uniting of two of the same gender can never experience. Let's take a look at them:                                                                                                                                   

God is a God of Covenant and over and over again Covenant is declared from the beginning of Genesis with the shedding of BLOOD. When Adam and Eve sinned in the garden, God covered their sin, guilt and shame after He declared their penalty, refrained from killing them and rescued them with a covering of Bloody animal skins (Genesis 3:21) .  Its obvious those skins became available by way of the sacrifice of an innocent animal and by way of the blood shed to give up its skin. 
We also see when God made covenant (promise / permanent allegiance) with Abram that there was the shedding of BLOOD with the cutting of flesh. ( Genesis 15:17-18)  This revealed God’s desire that the two become one in Covenant as God walked between the animal halves IN THE BLOOD as a sign of God instigating and creating a promise of eternal partnership and Covenant between Himself and Abram.
At that juncture in time God made a covenant to multiply Abraham’s seed (procreation).  When we come to the New Testament we discover Jesus Christ the son of God who shed his BLOOD in Covenant and made a promise that He would bring many sons (male and female) into spiritual life for eternity.
                 When a man and a women who have never joined their flesh with another (virginity) come together with the act of intercourse there is for the first time a shedding of BLOOD by the female.   This shedding creates a BLOOD Covenant and seals the coming together of two opposite genders to create one flesh. The results become the fruit of the womb in offspring for the glory of God. This blood covenant between male and female becomes the proof or evidence of a New Covenant of intimacy and promise of one flesh /a new family to live life together as one. When those who accept the sacrifice of Christ and "believe Him" and repent of our sins, we (leave our former single life) and cleave to our spiritual mate who provides and protects us as we walk in life with God in Covenant faith. When we do such, we produce disciples (fruit of Covenant) and we can look back to the BLOOD shed as a reminder of a promise made by God.
                Now anything short of this description between a male and female virgin coming together in blood covenant is not a truly biblical marriage as God intended! One might ask questions about divorce, death and remarriage etc.  God has answers for all things, but the ideal and intent of marriage is a physical BLOOD Covenant between male and female for life to become one flesh to produce fruit and offspring for God's glory.  Leviticus chapter 18 makes quite clear all the violations between mankind in any and every direction against the will of God and their respective consequences.

Now back to BIBLICAL homosexual marriage possibilities. Based on God's created order, intent and design it's impossible for two adults of the same gender to be married in covenant with each other and recongized by God. Neither of them can cut the blood covenant to produce fruit of the womb without a male and female involved to produce a child. 
                The reason why so many are opposed to the recent Supreme Court's decision is not against homosexuals and lesbians having the right to share their lives with whomever they want to, but rather, the opposition is in the trampling under foot a God  created institution called “Marriage,” the uniting of one man and one women who enter into a Holy Union called a “Marriage Covenant”.
              If two men or two women or 3 men and 3 women or however many want to live together is not my business. But if multiple men or women want to experience and do whatever together against God’s will it is their sinful business, their decision, but please do not try to corrupt and redefine the purpose and meaning of “MARRIAGE”  as God established it.  According to God’s Word, it’s not within the realm of man to change God and His ways. His priorities are the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.
