America's moral depravity and its solution
Feb 08, 2019
The media condemned the leaders of Libya and Syria for “killing their own people” when they defended themselves against revolutionaries who claimed to be mere demonstrators. Yet the same media lauds women who kill their own babies in the womb—and who now want the right to practice infanticide!
The incongruity of this shows a high level of hypocrisy that can be explained only in political terms. In other words, the media practices selective condemnation according to their political views.
But as usual there is a deeper problem, which is explained in Scripture. Since most people care little for Scripture, and even Christians have only a superficial level of understanding of the law and the prophets, I think it would be helpful to see what the Bible has to say.
First, the Bible clearly establishes that life begins in the womb, whereas many have assumed that life magically begins as it crosses the vaginal passage or when the doctor cuts the umbilical cord separating the baby from its mother. Even that low standard is now being challenged, as many are pushing the Democratic Party to accept infanticide as a divine right of women and doctors.
What is perhaps more surprising is that states and cities that are controlled largely by the Roman Catholic Church are the worst offenders. In New Mexico, for instance, having a large majority of Catholics, the House just passed a bill on February 6 to allow abortions right up to the time of birth.
The New Mexico House approved a radical pro-abortion bill Wednesday that would keep abortions legal through all nine months of pregnancy even if Roe v. Wade is overturned.
Likewise, New York City, which has been controlled politically by a coalition between Catholics and Jews, was the first to gain national attention on this issue. Many Catholics demanded that Governor Cuomo be refused communion in the Church for his sin of murder, but Cardinal Timothy Dolan refused.
That strongly implies that Cuomo has the blessing of this corrupt Cardinal, and since Pope Francis has not removed Dolan from his position, it also implies that the Pope is complicit in this conspiracy against babies in spite of the Church’s official position. Governor Cuomo believes that he can support abortion and still be a good Catholic, since he was once an altar boy. He fails to mention that baby body parts are valuable in medical commerce.
If ordinary Catholics do not rise up in horror against this as one voice, they will soon find that the Satanists within the Catholic hierarchy have taken over the Church itself. Former Jesuit, Malachi Martin, in fact, claimed that Satanists actually took control in 1964. He says that he discovered that during the inauguration of Pope Paul VI in 1963, a parallel ceremony was conducted at the same time by the Satanists in the Vatican. Because of the volatility of this knowledge, he wrote about it in the form of a novel, Windswept House.
The question is whether the Church’s official toleration and/or promotion of abortion is evidence of Satanism or just another moral adjustment to a changing world. Ultimately, Catholics themselves will have to decide what to do about this, but they are hampered by the doctrine of Papal Infallibility and by the spirit of Saul which demands submission to men.
Abortion Prophesied in Scripture
The law and the prophets speak about abortion and infanticide as a divine judgment and natural result of Israel’s lawlessness and its rebellion against God’s right to establish the code of law and morality as a whole. Lawlessness begins with misinterpretations of the law known as “the traditions of men,” and then it grows like leaven until the people find themselves eating their own children. Obviously, to eat one’s own child first requires the murder of that child.
The law of tribulation speaks of ever-increasing judgments for Israel’s lawlessness. At first, God judges them with a wooden yoke, where the nation was to serve others within their own land. But if lawlessness persists, God brings upon them an “iron yoke” (Deuteronomy 28:48), wherein they would be deported as captives to foreign lands.
In these times of severe judgment, “then you shall eat the offspring of your own body, the flesh of your sons and of your daughters whom the Lord your God has given you” (Deuteronomy 28:53). Years later, this was fulfilled quite literally during the siege of Samaria (2 Kings 6:28, 29). But in today’s world, this is being fulfilled in more subtle ways, although cannibalism is being practiced widely but secretly in Satanic circles.
Hosea is the prophet who deals with this problem in the clearest manner. In Hosea 9:3 he begins this section by prophesying that “in Assyria they will eat unclean food.” On one level, this had to do with eating unclean doctrines and false religious beliefs. Hosea 9:9 continues, saying, “they have gone deep in depravity.”
The prophet then launches into one of the most horrifying judgments found in Scripture. At first the judgment is limited to miscarriage or failure to reproduce children, which results in a great reduction in population. Hosea 9:11, 12 says,
11 As for Ephraim, their glory will fly away like a bird—no birth, no pregnancy, and no conception! 12 Though they bring up their children, yet I will bereave them until not a man is left. Yes, woe to them indeed when I depart from them!
It goes without saying, of course, that “children are a gift of the Lord” (Psalm 127:3). Hence, in times of divine judgment, God withdraws that blessing. In our time, beginning in the 1930’s, chemical fertilizers and pesticides have rendered men with lower and lower sperm counts. This was but the opening round in the modern fulfillment of Hosea’s prophecy.
Next, the prophet continues in Hosea 9:13, “But Ephraim will bring out his children for slaughter.” That is a prophecy of the legalization of abortion. Moreso, it is a prophecy that the people will actually consent to the murder of their own children. Somehow, they will be tricked into offering their own children to be killed, even as mothers in ancient times volunteered their children to Baal and Moloch, thinking they were doing good. Beliefs can be more powerful than a mother's natural instinct to protect her own children.
Today’s propaganda is just as powerful as it was in the land of Canaan. Doctrines matter. Unclean food (doctrines) matter, because we are what we eat. Our beliefs really do affect our actions. Any belief that is unbiblical will have a detrimental affect upon us in some way.
Finally, Hosea tells us the culmination of this moral slide into depravity. Hosea 9:16 says,
16 Ephraim is stricken, their root is dried up, they will bear no fruit. Even though they bear children, I will slay the precious ones of their womb.
In this three-step process, we move from (1) lack of conception beginning in the 1930’s to (2) abortion in 1973 and finally to (3) infanticide in 2019.
Hosea 9:17 concludes,
17 My God will cast them away because they have not listened to Him; and they will be wanderers among the nations.
The root problem is that we “have not listened” to God. The nation refused to hear God’s voice when He spoke the Ten Commandments (and the rest of the law). Since faith comes by hearing (Romans 10:17), the people did not have genuine faith. They were left with religion and works (i.e., faith in themselves), which is the basis of the Old Covenant.
The Biblical Solution
Obviously, the solution is to listen to God and to hear His voice, and to follow His leading, both personally in one’s daily life and generally by coming into agreement with His law. As for America as a nation, we need to reverse the “secularization” that has been imposed upon us since the 1930’s, when our Babylonian rulers began to overturn the Declaration of Independence which recognized that all rights come from our Creator.
We also need to define the motto, “In God We Trust,” so that we know which God we recognize and whose laws we will obey. Until we recognize Jesus Christ as our King, and until we recognize the Bible as our Constitution, our problems will persist. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit that we believe is soon coming will change the hearts of the people and will bring us back to our original point of departure so that we may repent of our lawlessness and rebellion.
Above all, we should recognize that God is still sovereign and that in the end all of this depravity in society and in the Church is actually a judgment of God. It is the end of a long history of divine judgment, and both Moses and Hosea tell us clearly that God is the One behind it. This does not justify abortion or infanticide. Rather, it puts these depravities into perspective and shows us the root causes of such things.
Most Christians see abortion and infanticide as a reason for divine judgment, when in fact, it is the judgment. People are destroying their children as a result of refusing to hear God, to obey Him, and to recognize His divine right to rule. How many Christians decry abortion and yet support secular government? We have failed to recognize that God has rights too. He has the right to rule that which He has created.
More specifically, we have failed to see the connection between ancient Israel and their modern descendants who are even now being brought to judgment for refusing to comply with God’s original covenant. Most Christians think that the Jews are Israel, when in fact the Israelites were taken to Assyria and thereafter were never known as Jews.
Those Israelites migrated into Europe, many passing through the Caucasus Mountains, and hence, anthropologists have called them Caucasians. These dispersed Israelites set up nations and governments in Europe and were pagans until Christianity reached them in later years. Yet most people are never taught that the graveyard of Israel was the birthplace of Europe as we know it.
Those Israelites were cast out of the old land on account of their lawlessness, and divine judgment upon them is still with us to this day. Unfortunately, we forgot our heritage and forgot that we were under a Covenant with God. But God remembers, and He is still holding us to that Covenant to this day.
For a season, the Protestant Reformation moved Europe in the direction of God’s blessing and gave birth to liberty. But too many Christians refused to extend those liberties to other people, causing them to fail to be a blessing to all families of the earth. So God brought us back into captivity to Mystery Babylon in 1913-1914. When they brought us to bankruptcy in 1933, they foreclosed on our government, dethroned Jesus Christ, and began to secularize the nation. Once man became supreme, the Babylonian men took the highest positions of government.
I believe that these Babylonians understood that their rule could not last forever. For this reason, they set out to create moral depravity among the people, especially among the youth, so that divine judgment would continue indefinitely. Yet they only succeeded in fulfilling the prophecies in the law and in Hosea’s writings. In the end, the Holy Spirit will be poured out in order to cause us to repent, so that, in turn, we can receive the blessing of God once again.
This outpouring must take place in order for God to fulfill His New Covenant promise. The good news is that no Babylonian ruler is powerful enough to stop God from fulfilling His promise. The seed of Abraham, as Paul defined it in Galatians 3:7 and 29, will indeed fulfill its calling to be a blessing to all families of the earth.
