Thirty nine years of the product of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision to allow abortion has taken a gruesome toll on human life. America composes only one twentieth of the worlds population, but has accounted for one third of all of the abortions performed in the entire world. Over 54 million lives have been cut short to protect a womens right to protect her own body against a childs right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
More children die in a day and a half to the scourge of abortion than all the casualties of the Iraq war. People protest, pray and petition their congressional representatives more than ever before, but no one dares challenge the law that has opened the gates to wholesale slaughter of the innocents in this nation. Being in a mothers womb is still the most dangerous place to be anywhere in the world. The battle zones and famine ravaged areas of our world are safer by far.
It is beyond comprehension that the American scientific community is forced to admit that within weeks, a human embryo has a heartbeat, brain waves, fingerprints and a discernible behavioral personality and yet they claim they do not know when human life really begins. If this is the best science can do; we may all want to skip science and grow up dumb. At least we could grow up!
Who can bear hearing yet another commentator describe fully developed ancient civilizations that fell, disappeared or collapsed, and then quizzically asking what mysterious force or event brought them to their own demise. The patterns of ancient civilizations are easy to read and certain behaviors are commonplace to them all. The practice of disregarding and destroying their offspring is one such pattern.
Peruvian Moche culture sacrificed boys. Incas ritual of capacocha strangled, bludgeoned and abandoned children to die from exposure. Childrens remains are still being recovered that were sacrificed in the Aztecan culture. The Bible shows us that the Ammonites offered their children to be burned in the fire to the deity called Moloch. Even in the supposedly highly civilized cultures like ancient Carthage, indisputable evidence has been found indicating that children were sacrificed. Where does it end apparently it hasnt ended yet.
Two powerful voices witness against this generation for its war against life, one is the voice of history reflecting our own behavior back to us. The record shows that we have taken the lives of enough children to re-populate New York City a dozen times over. School children can wrap their minds around the ranting of the rapper easier than they can get a mental picture of a figure like 54 million, but when you tell them that more children have died than the entire population of California and Illinois combined, they start to get it. The other voice is Gods who says through his Apostle that near the end of civilization, we will become lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. (2 Ti 3: 4b)
Those who would insist that modern man has advanced way beyond primitive behavior which offered human life to placate imaginary deities, have not noticed that modern man has his own, all new, modern deities. Sex has been deified in this generation beyond anyones expectations. Behind that, are self and the driving force behind all this worship of flesh is, Satan himself. Here we have a clear trinity, Satan, self and sex. I submit that this is not an oversimplified picture of the present generation but it is a snapshot of our times that would hold up as evidence in any court of God or man.
If our children get beyond the initial danger of abortion after being conceived, they then face a second serious danger. The proponents of the new deviant sex crowd that are hammering away at getting our kids educated in all thats out there for them, in the feeding trough of the new American sexual buffet are ready to scoop up those who werent aborted for a second round of danger.
Californias new SB 48 is in effect as of January 1, 2012 and it paves the way to teach all our little lovelies about gay sex, transgenders and just about everything else, starting in kindergarten and up. Groups like SaveCalifornia.com are forming which is trying to get the law repealed but in the mean time is advising parents to pull their children out of public schools and finding alternative ways to educate them such as private schools and homeschooling.
Current presidential candidates have made it clear where they stand on these issues and you can see what their stand is on a site that publishes the report card on each candidate. There you will see that only Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum have the best scores. Perhaps among the new websites that ask you to click on what you see as a dream team for 2012 in the White House you could write in Gingrich and Santorum for President and Vice President. But it is up to us, not just Newt and Rick, to come to the realization of what is happening in this nation.
I care little that modern man can explain away all of the worst behaviors with a few well chosen psychological terms then proceed to offer the treatment for them in one of three standard ways. Incarceration, counseling or drugs, in varying combinations, is all we have to date. Moderns get un-glued at the suggestion that there may be some demons involved in our worst behavior but that is my first avenue of explanation even though it is the last, for the brilliant minds of the moderns.
In days gone by a child who had extreme behavior may have had a demonic intervention but today we are actually practicing demonic interception. By passing laws that force the education of deviant behaviors on children, we are inviting and enabling the demons that scripture has warned, will fill the earth in the last days to come and use our own children, as they see fit.
The Apostle Paul gave strong warning to the church that near the end of time, they would be in danger of those who would introduce demonically derived doctrines into their congregations. The only question remaining is; if such doctrines can infiltrate the church, what makes us think that they have not already taken hold of every aspect of secular life? Academia, politics and society at large have already been inundated with these doctrines, with little resistance being leveled against them. To Wit: Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. (1 Ti 4: 1)
If our children escape abortion and the influence of demonically driven early childhood indoctrination, they still have one more hurdle to endure. From high school to college they will be bombarded with a secular world view that is geared to remove all allusion to God. From the big bang to the evolutionary model followed by the promise of endless exploration of interstellar space they are encouraged to leave God behind in the world of antiquated useless and outdated pursuits of ancient man.
Now we have come full circle to where the next generation thinks only self indulgence and gain are all that matters and they will readily discard their offspring to the god of this world and the vicious cycle will never end, but that is not true! It does end, not very well according to the immutable prophecies of the scriptures they so easily reject.
The same Bible that promised a Savior would be born thousands of years before he actually was, also promises that in the last days a leader called the Antichrist will also be born. He is a political, military genius with economic prowess unlike anyone before him. He will be celebrated, lauded and obeyed. He will see human life as nothing more than fodder for his evil plans and what is not lost to abortion, warfare and others scourges will be offered up for execution. (Rev 20: 4)
Those days will be far more troubled than these days, so if you are already concerned about how things are going, you will need to brace yourself for what is next. Christ described it thusly, For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. (Mark 13: 19)
Almost forty years past I had a dream vision, in which I saw the sun darkened, the moon turned to blood red and the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am not ashamed to tell this to anyone who will listen and since my time on earth is now so short it is an imperative not simply a curiosity. But I have met others whose dream visions contain much more detail. While I can neither confirm nor deny the veracity of others visions, I do ponder them.
I know of two people, one in Australia and the other from the city of Los Angeles who have both seen what appears to be a nuclear blast leveling Los Angeles. I cannot speculate whether such visions are true but I dont need to speculate at all that they are within the realm of possibility. I have not been given the details of any aspect of the destruction of cities or nations but have as much as anyone to go on when I read the solemn warnings of Christ and his prophets. Does anyone really need more than this?
Only you can answer what the term pillars of smoke is referring to but in a world full of nuclear missiles and volatile nations your imagination can do the rest. The prophet Joel described conditions in the very last days of time, he did not mince words.
And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come. (Joel 2: 30, 31)
All hope is not lost for our children or for us. The mercy of the living God endures until the very last second of time. This can be seen by what Joel says next, it is a message for America and the entire world not to be trifled with, or ignored.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call. (Joel 2: 32)
