THE DEFINITION OF MARRIAGE
July 9, 2015
ON June 26th 2015, the US Supreme Court ruled on the definition of marriage overturning the law of God, and changing the definition of the word, and the meaning of the institution of marriage. On the Hebrew calendar, this act occurred on the 9th of Tammuz.
The scripture declares in Psalm 11:3, “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
The word used in this text for destroyed is the Hebrew word, haˆras, which means to pull down, or to break in pieces, to destroy, to overthrow and to utterly throw down and ruin.
“ON this same day, in the year 423 BC, Nebuchadnezzar's troops breached the walls of Jerusalem and entered the city. Four weeks later, the Holy Temple was destroyed, and the Jews were exiled to Babylon. In that time, all of Israel observed a day of fasting and mourning, remembering this event on the 9th of Tammuz. Seventy years later, however, when the Second Temple was built, the fast was abolished and the day was turned into a holiday. 500 years later, Jerusalem fell again, on the 17th of Tammuz, prior to the destruction of the Second Temple, and thus the Sages decreed the 17th of Tammuz as a fast day to commemorate both tragedies.”
On this same day that the walls of Jerusalem were destroyed by the forces of the King of Babylon, America has seen her walls break down. In ancient Israel, the total collapse occurred within weeks of the breaching of the wall. Is this not one more warning from the LORD, that this act, has in effect destroyed what little was left of the nation we once knew, which we called America?
Nine is the number of iniquity, and the month of Tammuz is named after a Babylonian deity, representing idolatry, and the month of Tammuz, in the minds of the sages of Israel, represented a time for transformation, to turn from idolatry.
“The mythology of the name Tammuz comes from the Accadian sun-god (Adonis of the Greeks), who was the husband of the goddess Ishtar. In the Chaldean calendar there was a month set apart in honour of this god, the month of June to July, from the beginning of the summer solstice. At this festival, which lasted six days, the worshippers, with loud lamentations, bewailed the funeral of the god, they sat "weeping for Tammuz" (Ezekiel8:14). 
Tammuz was bound to Ishtar by sacred marriage, which could only be dissolved by death of the parties. America too, as a nation, was once bound in a sacred covenant to the one true God, and this covenant also will only be dissolved by death. On the 9th of Tammuz, in the year we call 2015, on the same day as the first destruction of Jerusalem, the final judgment of God has been decreed over our land, through the rule of our highest court. Weep America, for your judgment is now at the door.
