|The Sacrifice Of Children Will Destory A Nation
Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris
Parents often do the best job they know how if they love their children. Yet the are not perfect people. Yet those that care about their children do the best by them, yet it does not mean bad things do not occur even in their own home. Yet for a parent to sacrifice their children on altars and literally take there life is just as bad as unnecessary abortion. Israel as a nation had forsaken God. Yet there were still people in Israel that believed in God and had faith. The nation would not listen to the messages from God that the prophets spoke. The nation fell like many nations do over time, when deplorable act of killing of babies occur. It is the killing of the unborn, or the born that is a disgrace to a nation. Yet sacrificing of children on altars is far greater in some ways, because the sacrifices are made for the parents protection. The ritual act of Ashtaroth and Baal were practice by leaders and people that fear not the words of the Lord. Godís word has always protect the people.
The warning of destruction because of sin of Idolatry caused destruction of their own people was upon the nation of Israel. Israel fought for life of innocent. Today as marchers in the city streets fight for abortions rights, people often ignore the signs of protesters whether they agree or not. Protestors sometimes to radical in their actions because of their desire to protect the innocent in the womb. Some being survivors of abortion themselves they claim.
The point is there is not nation around that does not practice abortion of some kind or killing of the innocent. It is a miracle the wrath of God has not come to the entire world as of yet at one time. When Godís pours out his wrath, I do not want to be in his way, I rather be on His side, under the protection of the Almighty. No siege ever destroyed a people on its own. As long as their ground to plant fruit and vegetables and city for growth a city under siege will survive, unless a terrible famine and drought hit at the same time. Germany wall fell in the 1990ís I remember when it fell but canít think of the year at the moment. Yet the point is people behind the iron curtain were no longer behind the wall. Their philosophies taught behind the wall. Their ideology taught behind the wall. Destruction comes by lies and untruths building fear among a people. Truth as always brought life and liberty of the heart, mind and spirit of a people.
God will always leave a remnant of his people for His purpose. Yet Godís people will know the hand of God in their life. Just because the world has bad people in it, does not mean there are not good people too. God knows how to protect his people by His Spirit and Godís people listen to God or learn too. Godís people maybe scattered but they are not alone. God protection is on them for a purpose, and when the purpose is finished he is able to take them home to be with Him. Godís people no matter where they are still belong to Him. He will not forsake them.
To the heathens and idolaters will know the wrath of God because of the whoredom. We can not be blind to the fact the love of God is on the people that turn to him. We can not be blind to His love. Why demand we worship Him alone, because He created us, and those idols had no part in creating any of Godís handiwork. Let us thank the Lord of heaven for His grace and love. Let us honor Him for creating us as a people meant for good works and not evil of destruction. Jesus being the Word of God created heavens and the earth by the word being spoken by God. Anyone looking to Christ will be saved. Jesus came in the flesh, died on the cross and rose again. Godís promise of salvation remains in tact from Old To New Testament. We are created and are wonderfully made in our mothers womb. God can forgive a women who aborts a baby, if she will just repent. Is Abortion sin, the only time for abortion is both life will be lost, or naturally done by the hand of God.
Dear Heavenly Father thank you for being my Creator and my God. Remind me to always trust in your word. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
