For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. James 2:13
Abortion is premeditated murder in the eyes of a holy God, who created man in His own image and likeness. There was a time in this country when it was illegal, but that has been overturned by a liberal spirit of anti-Christ! When women's lib began, women wanted a choice to either keep an unwanted pregnancy or terminate it and eventually it became legal thanks to the Roe vs. Wade decision in 1973.
I believe with all of my heart that judgment began in this country when the decision was made to murder the unborn without remorse nor repentance, they burned, hacked, poisoned, sucked out brains, crushed heads and for some full term, allowed them to squirm in their own blood in garbage cans until dead! If any human being could be so desensitized to murder an unborn child in this manner he would make Hitler look like Ned in the first reader!
When I first began my journey with Jesus I joined the ranks of Operation Rescue, walking the picket lines and screaming at the abortion clinics in hopes they would shut down, but I didn't see any fruit, so I decided to give these ladies seeking an abortion a place to have their babies and started a home for unwed mothers. Just a drop in a gigantic bucket, my efforts, although worthy, barely scratched the surface of a national epidemic with well over fifty million innocent children murdered in the name of choice! Unless there is repentance from this heinous crime of genocide, the powers of darkness will destroy this once great nation with the absence of a Holy God, deeply offended by our behavior!
Whoever shuts his ears to the cry of the poor will also cry himself and not be heard. Proverbs 21:13
SACRIFICING YOUR CHILDREN TO DEMONS
'And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the Lord.' Leviticus 18:21
The people of God were told not to engage in the practices of the Canaanite nations nor walk in any of their ordinances, but they disobeyed and offered their children to the demon god, Molech. A bronze statue with the head of a bull and a hollow belly where a fire was kindled and outstretched arms where children were placed to roll down into the fiery furnace to be sacrificed, a horrible sin that angered God and brought about His righteous judgment!
No different today, God said, "You shall not murder!" but we have murdered and allowed the sacrifice of America's innocent children to be offered to the god of choice! Who can we blame but us, the American church has the word, but has become silent, satisfied with comfort and pleasure, they have ignored this heinous crime of genocide and pointed the finger at the Supreme Court, but there is but one Supreme Court and One Supreme Judge who presides over the rebellion of a nation gone mad! This blatant act of mass murder cannot be voted away by choosing some human means to a spiritual problem that will not be forgiven until we repent!
If you are a born again believer, washed in the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, America is not your "Mecca" because we have been bought with a price and we are no longer our own and we serve a King who rules over the Kingdom of God come to earth to heal all oppressed by the devil! We are called to be separate from the world and the things of the world. This planet is not our home and we are only here to reap a harvest of lost souls and expand God's kingdom by making disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ! If we as the body of Christ spent as much time preaching, teaching, equipping and making disciples instead of arguing what lost soul is going to be the next President, the world would be reached and the Kingdom full of new creations in Christ!
There are six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, (abortion) a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies. and one who sows discord among brethren. Proverbs 6:16-19
A DEN OF THIEVES
"For if you thoroughly amend your ways and your doings, if you thoroughly execute judgment (justice) between a man and his neighbor, "if you do not oppress the stranger, the fatherless (unborn) and the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, or walk after other gods to your hurt, then I will cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever." Jeremiah 7:5-7
The prophet Jeremiah was proclaiming this word in the gate of the Lord's house to a backslidden people who had forsaken the Lord, rejected His commands and shed innocent blood! Not unlike today, the people of God are in the same condition, especially in America where the church has become comfortable in their palatial palaces of prosperity with their self-help gurus and best selling mega preachers filling them with fluffy sermonettes, putting them into a sermon induced coma of complacency!
A modern day "Den of Thieves" robbing the rich and padding their pockets with the spoils, they have created a brood of spoiled spectators who idolize their superstar preachers but neglect the word of the living God! Asleep in the darkness of their peaceful country club atmosphere, sipping their Starbucks, they don't realize the judgment falling upon them! The world is falling headlong into Hell while the church, totally oblivious to the cries of the damned, the poor and the fifty million innocent children murdered on their watch, they continue in their dead and lifeless religious rituals, not realizing the absence of God!
When the Lord Jesus suddenly appeared at the temple it was in the same condition as He rebuked them and overturned the tables, He drove out the money changers with a whip! I wonder what He would do today if He entered one of America's mega services and saw the thousands of spectators being entertained by their "Rock Star" preachers, unconcerned about what is going on right outside their stain glassed windows? If you are concerned about America's condition, you can blame it on the preachers, pastors and the so-called leadership of the modern-day all about me church, who have neglected to preach repentance and the true gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to a lost world in need of redemption! May God have mercy on us all!
"Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn incense to Baal, and walk after other gods whom you do not know, and then come and stand before Me in this house which is called by My name, and say, 'We are delivered to do all these abominations'? "Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of thieves in your eyes? Behold, I, even I, have seen it," says the Lord. Jeremiah 7:9-11
