Orthodox Jews in Israel say that a gay parade may lead to another war

Thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews protested in Jerusalem against holding the 2006 gay pride parade in Jerusalem and claimed that if the parade did take place, it could lead to another war, making note of the fact that the recent Israeli-Hezbollah war broke out as soon as the parade was announced back in July.

One of the leaders of the spirited protest, Rabbi Moshe Sternbach, said that Israel did not succeed in Lebanon due to the obscenity and promiscuity in the Holy Land and that Jews must act for the preservation of Jerusalem's sanctity. The religious Jewish protesters presented other signs, signs that they called divine that mentioned the account in the book of Genesis which tells of the total destruction of Sodom by God for similar activities.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The protest in Jerusalem against the proposed gay pride parade is interesting in light of what Jesus Christ said would happen just before He returned to earth.

The gay pride parade that has been planned to take place in Jerusalem this fall was to have taken place during the summer and was postponed due to the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict in July. Gay rights groups have set another date for the parade since the fighting has stopped. In light of the announcement for the parade to take place in Jerusalem, the ultra-orthodox Jewish community has rushed to the streets to protest any such activity to happen in what they term the holy city of Jerusalem. Organizers of this massive protest say that if the gay pride parade does takes place in Jerusalem, it may well start another war.

This report has an interesting relationship with what Jesus Christ said during the days leading up to his death in Jerusalem. The New testament writer, Luke recorded the words of Jesus who told His disciples that He would return to earth at a time that was as the times or the days of Lot, that's Luke 17:28-30. Luke 17:29 says that the day Lot went out of Sodom, God reigned fire and brimstone from Heaven that destroyed Sodom and all that lived there. That judgment 4,000 years ago was for the sin of sodomy, a sin that God will judge again.

When the days of Lot are replicated in our day, Jesus Christ will come.
