Judging from what can be seen in the United States, some people sense that our nation seems to be under a curse. There’s good reason for that; the nation IS under a curse. How can I say that? Can I prove it? One does not have to be a prophet to see the curse coming. One merely needs to understand a few things. First, God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). Secondly, God does not change (Mal 3:6).
What is this curse that God has pronounced on our nation? Here’s the first indication: Lev 18:21 "And you shall not let any of your seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shall you profane the name of your God. I am Jehovah."
God made sure, after having given His commandments at Sinai, that Israel could understand what He meant by issuing His statutes. One of the commandments was that they should not murder (Ex 20:13). He expounded on that by prohibiting the action of killing one’s children by giving them to Molech, i.e., passing them through the fire.
He repeated the command for emphasis: Deu 18:10 "There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire. "
But, Israel and Judah did exactly what was prohibited. They caused their children to be put into the fire on the statue of Molech. 2Ki 17:17 And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire. After Israel had done that great evil, Judah did exactly the same thing: Jer 32:35 "And they built the high places of Baal, in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech; which I did not command them, nor did it come into My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin. "
Eze 23:36-37 "And Jehovah said to me: Son of man, will you judge Oholah and Oholibah, and declare to them their abominations, that they have committed adultery, and blood is on their hands? And they have committed adultery with their idols and have also caused their sons whom they bore to Me to pass through the fire to them, to devour them."
What was the result of this great evil? Eze 23:46-48 "For so says the Lord Jehovah: I will bring up a company on them, and will give them to be removed and stripped.
"And the company shall stone them with stones, and cut them down with their swords. They shall kill their sons and their daughters, and burn up their houses with fire.
"So I will cause wickedness to cease out of the land, that all women may be taught, even not to go after your wickedness."
And, it came to pass as God stated. First Israel and later Judah were violently taken into captivity as the result of the protection of God being removed from them. Israel never returned and is known today as the “Lost Tribes.” But, Judah was allowed to return, eventually. Why that happened is important, but not the subject of this article.
How does this affect the United States? The deliberately ignorant might say that they have never sacrificed their children to Molech. They make the mistake of not understanding that Molech was just the symbol of the great evil of murdering one’s children.
This country, which has been the recipient of the blessings promised to the children of Abraham, has been murdering huge numbers of its children since the evil decision of the Supreme Court in the case of Roe v. Wade.
Indeed, the website numberofabortions.com states that over 60 million babies have been sacrificed to the false idols of our convenience and money since the legalization of abortion.
But, it gets worse! Did you know that people in charge of getting foreign “aid” to other countries hold the sword over their head of their needing to control their population growth to get the “aid.” How do most of those nations comply with the American demands? Yes, you guessed correctly: abortion.
The same website mentioned earlier indicates that well over 1.5 billion babies have be sacrificed to the evil of American “aid.”
Recently, to compound the issue, a number of states have begun enacting laws that allow for those babies to be killed right up until the moment of birth!
Our legislators have no courage against the Planned Parenthood money for reelection. It would take only the simplest of definition changes in their criminal codes to end abortion immediately. What is it, you ask? All they would have to do is to define that life begins when doctors can detect a beating heart. But, our so-called servants have left their chains and continue to allow this great evil to create a stench in the nostrils of God.
They don’t seem to care that God said in Exo 13:2 "Sanctify all the first-born to Me, whatever opens the womb among the sons of Israel, of man and of beast. It is Mine." The first born children belong to God! How many children have we in this country stolen from God in all these years?
Therefore, yes, we are sacrificing our children to Molech figuratively. Whether we throw them onto the burning arms of the statute of Molech, or cut them, screaming in pain, from the Mother’s womb, they are just as dead—just as murdered.
We should not make the mistake of thinking that God is not paying attention to what we are doing. This nation is the recipient of the great blessings promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who later became named Israel. If God hated the evil that was done to children during those days, then He still hates it today.
If God brought invasion and captivity on Israel for these sins back then, He will most certainly bring invasion and captivity on any nation participating in this great evil of child sacrifice now.
If He sent Judah into captivity for not learning the lesson that God did not want children sacrificed to false gods, He most certainly will send this nation into captivity for sacrificing our children to the false gods of convenience and money.
I have heard the excuses put forth by some that abortion ought to be legal for the health of the mother, and for cases of rape and incest. Without a doubt, much evil is being done in this nation because rape and incest are likewise evil in God’s sight. Deu 22:25 "But if a man finds an engaged girl in the field, and the man forces her and lies with her, then only the man that lay with her shall die."
That statute applies to ALL men, related or not. Further, we read in Lev 18:8-18 that incest is likewise strictly prohibited.
However, in no case does God say that the child of such illicit unions is allowed to be killed. He was very specific in His statements that children were not to be given up to a false god, even if that false god is our convenience or our inability to support another mouth. There is a better solution than murder.
We in this nation compound one sin with another, and another. We use our own reasoning to determine that what we want is good—just like we did in the Garden of Eden. But, just like then, it is God who determines what is evil and what is good. Every time we choose that evil for ourselves, we are choosing the fruit of the forbidden tree once again.
Concluding, this nation is living on borrowed time because of the promises made to Abraham and his descendants. Is there any way for this nation, at this point, to avoid the destruction that is most assuredly coming? There is always the path of heartfelt repentance. We must quit electing spineless servants who leave the chains of the constitution and drag this nation down the hellacious pit of the murder of children. It is only by a national repentance and revival that this nation can be saved from the destruction that is coming on it.
Sadly, I do not see anything that will cause the people of this nation to rise up and remove the evil men and women from leadership who are about to bring destruction on all of us.
