The Father has been laying this thought heavy on my heart for some time now: Burning of infants to Molech/Milcham, child sacrifice, infanticide, abortion. The shedding of innocent blood has been a sin on this planet for thousands of years. Today it is manifested as abortion around the globe. It’s still blood lust sacrifices to the same demons, they have not gone anywhere, yet. No human has a right to murder an unborn baby or an infant. Yahuwah keeps these babies in heaven. They will be presented as evidence in the Heavenly Court on Judgment Day. Once you conceive a life, that life will be accounted for.
The Associates for Biblical Research recently published an article/study related to this matter. Here’s a link where you can download and read the PDF study: https://biblearchaeology.org/research/contemporary-issues/4375-canaanite-child-sacrifice-abortion-and-the-bible
Believers today don’t normally see this subject talked about in the New Covenant Scriptures. But it is there in Acts 15:20, 29 and 21:25. Acts 15:20, “but that we write to them that they must keep away from the pollution of idols, from sexual immorality, and from what is suffocated, and from blood.” vs. 29, “That you turn away from things sacrificed to idols, blood, things suffocated, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, it shall be well with you. Farewell.” Acts 21:25, “But concerning the ethno-linguistic nations who have believed, we wrote and gave the instructions that they should keep themselves from things sacrificed to idols, from blood, from what is suffocated, and from sexual immorality.”
The Greek word for sexual immorality here is porneia, or pornography, sexual deviance. Cultic prostitution was the norm at pagan temple worship. Things sacrificed to idols refers to the pagan ritual sacrifices at pagan temples and high places. Unfortunately, that included infant sacrifices also. We have simply sanitized it in the form of abortion at cleaner clinics. The blood refers to the pagan rituals of drinking sacrificial blood. What has always stymied me is the reference to things strangled, or suffocated. Has anyone ever tried to strangle an ox or sheep or goat? I’m sure it’s not an easy thing to do. It would be easier to suffocate an animal than to try to strangle it. Unfortunately, what I believe this term is referring to in the New Covenant Scriptures is the murder of infant children by suffocation in preparation for sacrifice to a demon idol, like Molech. I believe this terminology would also include some form of ancient abortion.
The ethno-linguistic nations that Paul and Silas were winning to Yahusha were coming out of these pagan worship experiences. They needed to hear the simple instructions from the apostles to refrain from perverted idol worship services and infanticide. It was very common. Children were disposed of at will, very similar to what we see in the abortion industry today. It’s just heartbreaking to me to see this mentioned in the book of Acts from the First Century.
And if you don’t believe my interpretation of Acts 15 and 21, then let’s look at what the Apostles wrote up as instructions for early believers in a document that became known at the Didache. Here’s what Didache 2:2 has to say about murder, “You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not corrupt children, you shall not fornicate. You shall not steal. You shall not practice magic. You shall not mix poison. You shall not murder a child, whether by abortion or by killing it once it is born.”
I found a version of the Didache for e-Sword on www.biblesupport.com. Here is its version of chapter 2, verse 2, ““You shall not murder; you shall not commit adultery”; you shall not corrupt boys; you shall not be sexually promiscuous; “you shall not steal”; you shall not practice magic; you shall not engage in sorcery; you shall not abort a child or commit infanticide. You shall not covet your neighbor’s possessions.”
Folks, you would think that after 2,000 years of faith in Yahusha and the ministry of Ruach ha’Kodesh, we would have grown way past having to deal with sexual immorality, idol worship, and infanticide/abortion. Our post-modern societies are no better than the ancient pagan societies that the Israelites faced in Canaan and all around the Middle East. The shedding of innocent blood is what brought down the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah. The very same issues of sexual deviance and abortion will bring down America and every nation on earth in these last days.
Psalm 33:11-22, “The plans of Yahuwah stand forever, the plans of his heart for all generations. 12Blessed is the nation whose Divine One is Yahuwah, the people whom he has chosen as his own inheritance. 13Yahuwah looks from heaven; he sees all the people. 14From the place where he lives, he looks down on all who live on the earth. 15He who shapes the hearts of them all observes all their deeds. 16No king is saved by a vast military force; a warrior is not saved by his great strength. 17A horse is false security for victory; in spite of his great strength, he cannot rescue. 18See, Yahuwah’s eye is on those who fear him, on those who count on his covenant faithfulness 19to deliver their lives from death and to keep them alive in times of famine. 20We wait for Yahuwah; he is our help and our shield. 21Our hearts rejoice in him, for we trust in his set-apart name. 22Let your covenant faithfulness, Yahuwah, be with us as we put our hope in you.”
We pray every day that the Father would pour out a Spirit of conviction of sin upon every human on earth. But if there is going to be an end-time revival or another great spiritual awakening, why will we see Judgment Day as portrayed in the end-time biblical prophecies? Currently, we see no hint of repentance by humans on this planet. Civil governments around the globe continue to support the murder of unborn innocents. The Father is watching as His anger grows. The angels are keeping track for the Court records. The cut off day is rapidly approaching. I hope everyone repents of their sins today. This is the day of salvation. You may not get another chance. Turn your life over to Yahusha haMashiach today. His blood is sufficient to cover our bloody hands.
