National "Pride" month.

Here in the US, many have decreed June is National Pride month. Mostly this means gay/lesbian pride, even though they don't always say that. Even so, pride is pride.

Prov 8:13; "The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverted mouth, I hate.
Prov 11:2; When pride comes, then comes dishonor, But with the humble is wisdom.
Prov 16:18; Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling.
Prov 21:24; "Proud," "Haughty," "Scoffer," are his names, Who acts with insolent pride.
Prov 29:23; A man's pride will bring him low, But a humble spirit will obtain honor.

If pride goes before destruction, I have to wonder how much more pride (of sin) God is going to allow?

Romans 1:20-32 (NKJV)
20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,
21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,
23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man--and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26
For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;
29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,
30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;
32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

Though they deserve death, according to scripture, we love them, but hate the practice they do which God says is all the items listed above.

2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 (NKJV)

11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,
12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

So sad brother, but in the latter days of the end time 'it will appear' the devil has domain.

He knows the end is coming but won't accept it, he deceives himself, then deceives others also. He is getting angry!

But 'it only appears' he has domain, and time is getting very short.

There is still time for them to turn from their wicked ways, repent and ask Jesus into their hearts. We must pray for them.

O Come Lord Jesus. Amen

They may as well call June anti-Christ or anti-God month. As that is what they are celebrating.

(Ps. 2:1-4) "...Let us brak their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision...."
