On Memorial Day Weekend 1991, the Westboro Baptist Church began its street ministry, by conducting their first public ministration at Gage Park. Gage Park was then a hot bed of homosexual activity – in a public park. Sex in the park.
For 25 years the Westboro Baptist Church has sought to warn this nation and the world to abstain from fleshly lusts and repent of the soul-damning, nation-destroying sins of homosexuality, same-sex marriage, fornication, adultery, murder (abortion and military), idolatry, covetousness and more.
Listen to these verses 2 Chronicles 36:14-16:
“Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed very much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of the LORD which he had hallowed in Jerusalem. And the LORD God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place: But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy.”
God sent His messengers to warn Israel and they rose up betimes – It is God’s work, not WBC’s. There he has allowed the church to conduct 57,300+ pickets, in 1000 different cities for 9,125 days. I say that it is God’s work and God gets the credit for that because he could rise up stones to preach these words if he wanted.
When these public ministrations began 25 years ago, the situation was bad. In 25 years, it has grown increasingly dire. The Lord your God has sent you many warnings and curses in these 2.5 decades, including these and countless more:
In 25 years God has not changed:
“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” (Leviticus 20:13)
“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.” (Romans 1:26-27)
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind (homosexuals)…shall inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9)
We do not know how much longer the Lord will patiently abide this rebellion, or how much longer He will have us to warn you. On May 28, 2016, WBC will solemnly mark this 25th anniversary at Gage Park, to warn you of the gravity of your sins and remind you to Repent or Perish (Luke 13:3).
Nothing has changed since 1991, except it has gotten far, far worse. The day of the Lord draws nigh.
