Yesterday, July 31st 2016, I met an elegant lady who is a Christian at her age of 90's. She knows me while we met on the street several times through the years. Yesterday, when she saw me, she called me aside and shared something with me personally.
she told me that she was in the downtown to celebrate the BC holiday. But she saw the gay pride parade on the street. her eyes were watering and her face became so painful looking when she tried to recall what she saw. she said, " what was this? what happened to those people? do they ever remember our God?" "I told my daughter not to be any near to them by forgetting our G-d and his commandments." "I was crying. My tears ran down in my heart and on my face." Certainly, when I observed her, some of her sadness and painfulness also entered me heavily. I knew that her righteous heart was crushed by what happened on the street today. I knew that her righteous soul will be hurt day after night in all her prayers. I also remembered what the Bible recorded, when Sodom and Gomorrah sinned heavily against God in all kinds of sexual immoralities, Lot's righteous soul was tortured day and night when he saw all those immoral conducts and thoughts and minds within the city where he and his family lives. he knew that was sinful and wicked. Yet, he yielded nothing to them. Praise the Lord when I heard the righteous soul of this elderly sister cries for the unrighteousness and darkness of this world, I encouraged her, "Your righteous heart tormented by them will by remembered by the Lord. have faith and He is coming soon." She appeared still in a shocking state while she recalled all those filthy and unfathomable falling of some human beings. My heart was so painful when I felt her pain. I encouraged her again to pray for them and ask for forgiveness of our G-d so that some of them might be saved.
Oh, G-d my Father. I know that you observed and felt the same pain in our hearts in that moment. This is what your righteousness about. this is why your Son came to die. Love is so pure that it asks us to suffer for this evil torture in our hearts. Love is so deep that we have been so engulfed by you and only can cry before you for those wickedness and darkness. When your justice and righteousness will reign? when your mercy and grace come to an end to bring the new Era of your Kingdom? May you increase our faith and our strength to bear such pain in our hearts and in our souls. May your Name be exalted forever and ever, never ending.
Called to serve, Called to stand, called to testify the Truth.
