THE MANASSEH JUDGEMENT:





INEVITABLE BUT DELAYABLE BY THE JOSIAH GENERATION...

“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
 to receive power and riches and wisdom And might 
and honor and glory and blessing."
Revelation 5:12
Three times in the Bible, the phrase “will not forgive” is used. Jesus told us that if we do not forgive others, then God will not forgive us, in two New Testament books. The only other time is in the Old Testament - found by my desire to know how God feels about abortion. For twelve years before, I listened to the radio and kept informed of the fight against abortion, but do not remember hearing His side of the argument. This study is the result of that search. Before you start, pray that God will reveal the truth, and in so doing, reveal Himself.

“However, the LORD did not turn from the fierceness of His great wrath with which His anger burned against Judah, because of all the provocations with which Manasseh had provoked Him. And the LORD said, “I will remove Judah also from My sight, as I have removed Israel. And I will cast off Jerusalem, this city which I have chosen, and the temple (house) of which I said, ‘My name shall be there.’” 2 Kings 23:26 - 27 

“Surely at the command (mouth) of the LORD it came upon Judah, to remove them from His sight because of the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he had done, and also for the innocent blood which he shed, for he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood; AND THE LORD WOULD NOT FORGIVE.” [All caps mine]
 
2 Kings 24: 3 - 4.

Why is God angry, and what were the provocations?


Psalms 106:35-43
“But they mingled with the nations,
And learned their practices (works),
And served their idols,
Which became a snare to them.
They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons,
And shed innocent blood,
The blood of their sons and their daughters,
Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;
And the land was polluted with the blood.
Thus they became unclean in their practices (works),
And played the harlot in their deeds.
Therefore the anger of the Lord was kindled against His people,
And He abhorred His inheritance (people).
Then He gave them into the hand of the nations (gentiles);
And those who hated them ruled over them.
Their enemies also oppressed them,
And they were subdued under their power (hand).
Many times He would deliver them;
They, however, were rebellious in their counsel,
And so sank down in their iniquity.”

This word study uses “passing through the fire,” “shedding innocent blood,” and “God’s wrath” found in Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the King James Version, I ask two questions. First, as the Father is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, why don’t we expect judgment as a nation? Secondly, what judgment or consequence is coming because of the sin of legal abortion?

Psalm 9:7-12
“But the Lord abides (sits as king) forever;
He has established His throne for judgment,
And He will judge the world in righteousness;
He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity.
The Lord also will be (Let the Lord also be) a stronghold for the oppressed,
A stronghold in times of trouble,
And those who know Thy name (let those who know Thy name) put their trust in Thee;
For Thou, O Lord, hast not forsaken those who seek Thee.
Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion;
Declare among the peoples His deeds.
For He who requires blood (avenges bloodshed) remembers them;
He does not forget the cry of the afflicted.”

The Messiah as known when Jesus was on earth.

The Lord Jesus’ time of servant hood was over 2000 years ago. He is now at the right hand of the Father waiting for His time to rule the whole world. Please note how John the Baptist describes the coming Messiah in Matthew 3:12 “And His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” Sounds to me like He is very angry and doing something about it. No wonder John had to ask Jesus later if He was the promised Messiah. Jesus was not doing then, what John knew the Messiah is going to do.

So what are we doing that makes Him extremely angry? He is angry because of the sacrifice of the unborn to the false god of self, and the false god of money. He is angry at those responsible for the legalization of abortion, the false teachers who promote it, and those who threaten or coerce others into committing it. He is angry at those who know it is wrong and say nothing against it. The silent cries of the dead call for justice and total reform. Too many are quiet because they do not believe a loving God can also be an angry God. God the Father and God the Son must be portrayed in total truth. When we offend the Holy Spirit He withdraws, when we offend the Father, He gets in our face, like any loving father. The Lord Jesus is not returning as a baby in a manger, but His eyes are a flame of fire. The church needs to learn what kind of ruler He will be! What form of government will His be? One thing it will be is just!

God warned the Israelites not to practice child sacrifice before they entered the promised land

In the Old Testament, at the time Moses was in Egypt with Pharaoh, there was an abhorrent pagan practice of sacrificing your firstborn to a false god called Molech by burning him or her alive. The One True God never ever considered such an abominable act. He hated it with a passion. We don't talk about it because it is so terribly awful and there are also our children sitting beside us in church. I vaguely remembered reading about it in passing during my daily Bible study (I simply read my Bible cover to cover a little or a lot per day) that's where "passing through the fire" came from.

The word of the Lord God Almighty, is a love letter. Not knowing the original language in which He spoke I read and study the New American Standard Bible. When quoting this version I have inserted within parentheses the additional meaning of a word as noted by the translators. Their goal was to translate the original language as closely as possible while making sense. If you notice some passages are written in verse, think of when Paul said to communicate in song…we also use all of our brain when processing music and God sang a lot when He was communicating.

God gave His people the law so they would have health and peace. The Law (including the 10 commandments) was given to Israel before they entered the promised land so all the neighboring countries could learn about God by how the Jews lived. I love the Old Testament law. Reading it now, as a parent, I see the love of God the Father, especially in Leviticus and Deuteronomy.

The law of God is a law of love. Educators and psychiatrists know children need fun, intrigue, and play along with routine, structure, and security. This routine, structure, and security are provided by rules or laws. Rules first prevent us from hurting ourselves and then from hurting others, thus providing the means for peace and happiness. It is good for the individual, the family, and society. Obeying the Ten Commandments teaches us true love, joy, and peace by teaching us how to love our neighbors as much as we love ourselves, and we all know how selfish we can be.

God's people were to go into a land already occupied. They were not given this land because they were better than the natives but because the natives were doing what God hates, and when you do this there are consequences.

Deuteronomy 9: 5 "It is not for your righteousness or for the uprightness of your heart that you are going to possess their land, but it is because of the wickedness of these nations that the Lord your God is driving them out before you, in order to confirm the oath (word) which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob."

 Deuteronomy 12:29-32..."when the Lord your God cuts off before you the nations which you are going in to dispossess, and you dispossess them and dwell in their land, beware that you are not ensnared to follow them (after them), after they are destroyed before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, ‘How do these nations serve their gods, that I also may do likewise?’ You shall not behave thus toward the Lord your God, for every abominable act which the Lord hates they have done for their gods; for they even burn their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods. Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do, you shall not add to nor take away from it."

Deuteronomy 18:9 -12...When you enter the land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate (do according to) the detestable things of those nations. There shall not be formed among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord; and because of these detestable things the Lord your God will drive them out before you.

God was judging the natives for sacrificing their children to the demons and their handmade idols. He warned His people that if they followed the same practices, they too would be judged. God does not say one thing He doesn't mean. This is the One True God speaking. Truth and Justice are the foundations of His being. Do you know what truth is? Search for the truth.

The Law of God states "...do not kill the innocent or the righteous, for I will not acquit the guilty," in Exodus 23:7 and in Leviticus 20:1-5 God says, ‘Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “You shall also say to the sons of Israel, ‘Any man from the sons of Israel or from the aliens sojourning in Israel, who gives and of his offspring (seed) to Molech, shall surely be put to death; the people of the land shall stone him with stones. ‘I will also set my face against that man and will cut him off from among his people, because he has given some of his offspring (seed) to Molech, so as to defile My sanctuary and to profane My holy name. ‘If the people of the land, however, should ever disregard (hiding they hide their eyes from) that man when he gives any of his offspring (seed) to Molech, so as not to put him to death, then I Myself will set My face against that man and against his family; and I will cut off from among their people both him and all those who play the harlot after him, by playing the harlot after  Molech.'"

Leviticus 18:21... "Neither shall you give any of your offspring, to offer (cause to Passover) them to Molech." God's people were not to do what the natives were doing after they moved in because God hates what they were doing. God was judging the natives because of the detestable things they were doing, sacrificing their children for one. I did not study the witchcraft or other things. Today abortion is available in all states united. And God hates child sacrifice. Amazing how we developed the technology to see inside the womb and now know it's not "just a blob of tissue" at the same time we "scientifically" accept abortion.

Sacrifice defined

Now, what is a sacrifice? Giving up one thing for another. God's people would eventually disobey (like all kids) and do exactly what God said not to do.
Psalms 106:35-43
“But they mingled with the nations,
And learned their practices (works),
And served their idols,
Which became a snare to them.
They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons,
And shed innocent blood,
The blood of their sons and their daughters,
Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;
And the land was polluted with the blood.
Thus they became unclean in their practices (works),
And played the harlot in their deeds.
Therefore the anger of the Lord was kindled against His people,
And He abhorred His inheritance (people).
Then He gave them into the hand of the nations (gentiles);
And those who hated them ruled over them.
Their enemies also oppressed them,
And they were subdued under their power (hand).
Many times He would deliver them;
They, however, were rebellious in their counsel,
And so sank down in their iniquity.”

Psalm 9:7-12
"...For He who requires blood (avenges bloodshed) remembers them;
He does not forget the cry of the afflicted.”

What happens when God's laws are broken? There are consequences set up by God to instruct us, in addition to God's righteous punishment. More than “time outs” here! I must warn those who break God's law of the consequences and punishment. Consequences may not be immediate, nor is God's punishment, because He wants us to see what we are doing wrong and repent. Sometimes we see and talk ourselves into doing what we know is wrong. God calls this hardening our hearts. God gives us time to soften back up. He is fair - no excuses.

The people obey the King of Judah in disobedience.

There was a King of Judah called Manasseh whose story is told in 2 Kings 21.
“Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king, and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Hephzibah. And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, according to the abominations of the nations whom the Lord dispossessed before the sons of Israel. For he rebuilt the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he erected altars for Baal and made an Asherah (a wooden symbol of a female deity), as Ahab king of Israel had done, and worshiped all the host of heaven and served them.
And he built altars in the house of the Lord, of which the Lord had said, “In Jerusalem I will put My name.” For he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the Lord. And he made his son pass through the fire, practiced witchcraft and used divination, and dealt with mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord provoking Him to anger.

Then he set the carved image of Asherah that he had made, in the house of which the Lord said to David and to his son Solomon, “In this house and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen from all the tribes of Israel, I will put MY name forever. “And I will not make the feet of Israel wander anymore from the land which I gave their fathers, if only they will observe to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that My servant Moses commanded them.” But they did not listen, and Manasseh seduced them to do evil, more than the nations whom the Lord destroyed before the sons of Israel.

Now the Lord spoke through His servants the prophets, saying, “Because Manasseh king of Judah has done these abominations, having done wickedly more than all the Ammorites did who were before him, and has also made Judah sin with his idols; therefore thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, ‘Behold, I am bringing such calamity on Jerusalem and Judah, that whoever hears of it, both his ears shall tingle. ‘And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria and the plummet of the house of Ahab, and I will wipe Jerusalem as one wipes a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down. ‘And I will abandon the remnant of My inheritance and deliver them into the hand of their enemies, and they shall become as plunder and spoil to all their enemies; because they have done evil in My sight, and have been provoking Me to anger, since the day their fathers came from Egypt, even to this day.’”

Moreover, Manasseh shed very much innocent blood until he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; besides his sin with which he made Judah sin, in doing evil in the sight of the Lord. Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh and all that he did and his sin which he committed (sinned), are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? And Manasseh slept with his father and was buried in the garden of his own house, in the garden of Uzza, and Amon his son became king in his place.

Also in II Chronicles 33:1-19 (read all of it)

“And he made his sons pass through the fire in the valley of Benhinnom; and he practiced witchcraft, used divination, practiced sorcery, and dealt with mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking Him to anger.

“Thus Manasseh misled Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to more evil than the nations whom the Lord destroyed before the sons of Israel. And the Lord spoke to Manasseh and his people, but they paid no attention.

The Lord raises an army of gentiles to invade

“Therefore the Lord brought the commanders of the army of the king of Assyria against them, and they captured Manasseh with hooks (things put through the nose), bound him with bronze chains, and took him. And when he was in distress, he entreated the Lord his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers.

“When he prayed to Him, He was moved by his entreaty and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem to his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord was God.

“Now after this he built the outer wall of the city of David on the west side of Gihon, in the valley, even to the entrance of the Fish Gate; and he encircled the Ophel with it and made it very high. Then he put army commanders in all the fortified cities of Judah.

“He also removed the foreign gods and the idol from the house of the Lord as well as all the altars which he had built on the mountain of the house of the Lord and in Jerusalem, and he threw them outside the city.   And he set up the altar of the Lord and sacrificed peace offerings and thank offerings on it; and he ordered Judah to serve the Lord God of Israel.

“Nevertheless the people still sacrificed in the high places, although only to the Lord their God.
Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh even his prayer to his God and the words of the seers who spoke to him in the name of the Lord God of Israel, behold, they are among the records of the kings of Israel. His prayer also and how God was entreated by him, and all his sin, his unfaithfulness, and the sites on which he built high places and erected the Asherim and the carved images, before he humbled himself, behold, they are written in the records of the Hozai (seers).”

Manasseh’s abominable practice of sacrificing his son and filling the land with the blood of the innocent kindled the wrath of God or provoked the LORD God to anger. This King would be judged, but the “Manasseh judgment” refers to the vengeance against the innocent that would be fulfilled, His anger will not be quenched. The king Manasseh was overtaken and sent in chains to another country. Only when he acknowledged the LORD is the one true God did God reinstate him. He then tore down all the places the children were sacrificed. He realized what he did was wrong and stopped the practice, but God would still avenge the death of the innocents as you will see.

Keep in mind...God said, "Do not shed innocent blood." Manasseh said it was okay. Manasseh was the leader of the people and as the leader, he is more responsible than the general population who follows him. Beware Supreme Court, the LORD holds you in contempt! Pastors, priests, ministers, judges, rulers, leaders, governors, senators, representatives listen! Hear the word of God in Jeremiah 23:1 & 2... “Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of My pasture!...behold, I am about to attend to you for the evil or your deeds," declares the Lord. God holds those in power responsible.

The story continues

After the death of Manasseh, his son Amon worshiped the same false gods as his father but “he did not humble himself before the Lord as his father Manasseh had done (humbled himself), but Amon multiplied guilt” (2 Chronicles 33:23), so his servants killed him. The people then punished the servants and made Amon’s son Josiah king at the age of eight! I don’t know how old he was when he ordered an inventory and repair of the Temple, but a priest found the copies of the Law. "And when it came about when the king heard the words of the book of the law, that he tore his clothes. The king commanded Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam the son of Shaphan, Achbor the son of Micaiah, Shaphan the scribe, and Asaiah the king’s servant saying, "Go, inquire of the Lord for me and the people and all Judah concerning the words of this book that has been found, for great is the wrath of the Lord that burns against us, because our fathers have not listened to the words of this book, to do according to all that is written concerning us."

 2 Kings 22:11-13

In obedience to Josiah, the priests went to the prophetess Huldah, and God spoke through her saying, "Behold, I bring evil on this place and on its inhabitants, even all the words of the book which the king of Judah has read. Because they have forsaken Me and have burned incense to other gods that they might provoke Me to anger with all the work of their hands, therefore My wrath burns against this place, and it shall not be quenched. But to the king of Judah who sent you to inquire of the Lord this shall you say to him, 'Thus says the Lord God of Israel, "Regarding the words which you have heard, because your heart was tender what I spoke against this place and against its inhabitants that they should become a desolation and a curse, and you have torn your clothes and wept before Me, I truly have heard you," declares the Lord. "Therefore, behold I will gather you to your fathers, and you shall be gathered to your grave in peace, neither shall your eyes see all the evil I will bring on this place." ' " So they brought back word to the king. 2 Kings 22:16-20

True repentance

When Josiah heard the LORD he gathered all the men of Judah and all the people of his country, "both small and great", and they went to the house of the LORD and read the words of the book of the covenant (the law) and they all chose to enter into a relationship of obedience with the LORD God to receive His blessings instead of His righteous judgment. Josiah then cleaned up his country and did away with all the false priests and destroyed all the places they worshiped the false gods and removed the abominations that were seen in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem "that he might confirm (perform) the words of the law which were written in the book." 2 Kings 23:24. I believe today's generation is smart enough to choose the right way and hear the truth.

No other king of Judah would obey the LORD as wholeheartedly and completely as Josiah. "However, the Lord did not turn from the fierceness of His great wrath with which His anger burned against Judah, because of all the provocations with which Manasseh had provoked Him." 2 Kings 23:26. The LORD God still heard the cries of the innocent and prophesied judgments would be carried out. Josiah's son chose to do evil, did not repent and then the judgments came.

God speaks before anything happens

I searched into which prophet was sent to Judah because God always speaks to us and surprisingly Isaiah was first sent before Manasseh’s reign of death to tell of what was coming. Reading his book we find not only warnings of severe judgment but also the promises of a Savior after His righteous judgment has been carried out. What love! We all want and need to be accepted by our parents after being punished.

Along with Isaiah, the prophet Micah was sent. The omniscient God knows what will be going down even before we mess up and cause the problem. Micah 1 foretells God's judgment before the evil started. Parents teach their children the stove is hot before they can reach it. God is just in that He warns the kings and leaders that they are wrong. I find chapter 3 most intriguing. God is talking to the leaders.

Micah 3-And I said, "Hear now, heads of Jacob
And rulers of the house of Israel.
“Is it not for you to know justice?
You who hate good and love evil,
Who tear off their skin from them
And their flesh from their bones,
And who eat the flesh of my people,
Strip off their skin from them,
Break their bones,
And chop them up as for the pot
And as meat in a kettle.”
Then they will cry out to the Lord,
But He will not answer them.
Instead, He will hide His face from them at that time,
Because they have practiced evil deeds.

Thus says the Lord concerning the prophets
Who lead my people astray:
When they have something to bite with their teeth,
They cry, "Peace,"
But against him who puts nothing in their mouths,
They declare holy war.
Therefore it will be night for you-without vision,
And darkness for you-without divination.
The sun will go down on the prophets,
And the day will become dark over them.
The seers will be ashamed
And the diviners will be embarrassed.
Indeed, they will all cover their mouths (mustaches)
 Because there is no answer from God
On the other hand I am filled with power-
With the Spirit of the Lord-
And with justice and courage
To make known to Jacob his rebellious act,
Even to Israel his sin.
Now hear this, heads of the house of Jacob
And rulers of the house of Israel,
Who abhor justice
And twist everything that is straight,
Who build Zion with bloodshed and Jerusalem with violent injustice.
Her leaders pronounce judgment for a bribe,
Her priests instruct for a price,
And her prophets divine for money.

Yet they lean on the Lord saying, “Is not the Lord in our midst? Calamity will not come upon us. Therefore, on account of you, Zion will be plowed as a field, Jerusalem will become a heap of ruins, And the mountain of the temple (house) will become high places of a forest.” The prophet Jeremiah was sent to speak the word of God just before and during the punishment. Listen to what the LORD said the punishment would be.

Jeremiah 15:1-4
Then the Lord said to me, “Even though Moses and Samuel were to stand before Me, My heart (soul) would not be with (toward) this people, send them away from My presence and let them go! “And it shall be that when they say to you, ‘Where would we go?’ then you are to tell them, ‘Thus says the Lord: "Those destined for death, to death; And those destined for the sword, to the sword; And those destined for famine, to famine; And those destined for captivity; to captivity.”’

The Consequences of Child Sacrifice

“And I shall appoint over them four kinds of doom” declares the LORD; “the sword to slay, the dogs to drag off, and the birds of the sky and the beasts of the earth to devour and destroy.“And I shall make them an object of horror among all the kingdoms of the earth because of Manasseh, the son of Hezekiah, the king of Judah, for what he did in Jerusalem.”

And Jeremiah 19:3-9
"...and say, ‘Hear the word of the Lord, O kings of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, “Behold I am about to bring a calamity upon this place, at which the ears of everyone that hears of it will tingle. “Because they have forsaken Me and have made this an alien place and have burned sacrifices (incense) in it to other gods that neither they nor their forefathers not the kings of Judah had ever known, and because they have filled this place with the blood of the innocent. And have built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire as burnt offerings to Baal, a thing which I never commanded or spoke of, nor did it ever enter My mind (heart); Therefore, behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when this place will no longer be called Topheth or the valley of Benhinnom, but rather the valley of Slaughter.“And I shall make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place, and I shall cause them to fall by the sword before their enemies and by the hand of those who seek their life; and I shall give over their carcasses as food for the birds of the sky and the beasts of the earth.“I shall also make this city a desolation and an object of hissing; everyone who passes by it will be astonished and hiss because of all its disasters (blows).And I shall make them eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they will eat one another’s flesh in the siege and in the distress with which their enemies and those who seek their life will distress them.” ‘

The book of Ezekiel was written during the promised judgment.
Ezekiel 7:1 – 10
Moreover, the word of the Lord came to me saying, “And you, son of man, thus says the Lord GOD (YHWH) to the land of Israel, ‘An end! The end is coming on the four corners of the land. Now the end is upon you, and I shall send My anger against you; I shall judge you according to your ways, and I shall bring all your abominations upon you. For My eye will have no pity on you, nor shall I spare you, but I shall bring your ways upon you, and your abominations will be among you; then you will know that I am the Lord! “Thus says the Lord GOD (YHWY), ‘A disaster, unique disaster, behold it is coming! An end is coming; the end has come! It has awakened against you; behold, it has come! Yur doom has come to you, O inhabitant of the land. The time has come, the day is near-tumult rather than joyful shouting on the mountains. Now I will shortly pour out My wrath on you, and spend My anger against you, judge you according to your ways, and bring on you all your abominations. And My eye will show no pity, nor will I spare. I will repay (give) you according to your ways, and bring on you all your abominations. And My eye will show no pity, nor will I spare. I will repay you according to your ways, while your abominations are in your midst; then you will know that I, the LORD, do the smiting. Behold, the day! Behold, it is coming! Your doom has gone forth; the rod has budded, arrogance has blossomed.” The LORD gives judgment according to the sin. Abortion is a true abomination.

Search for the Truth about abortion

Read the testimony of the abortionists given in the court of New York and tremble with fear. The fear of the LORD is not only respect but also true fear. Anyone having the privilege of being raised by an honorable father knows what it is like to face the music for just punishment. Abortion should not be allowed in your town. Drive it out. Outlaw it in your town, your county, your state and your nation. It is not an option for God is angry and we have to stop it. It doesn't matter why it is done. Be afraid. Our swords and chariots will not protect us from the hand of the Almighty. Listen America! God’s law says we are not to kill our children - born or unborn because if we do there will be consequences. Do not listen to the false teachers who have duped our leaders into allowing this abomination in the first place. Search for the truth that was revealed after Roe v Wade. The original arguments were false. They are still false. Do not be misled yourself. You do not have to believe everything you are told, search for the whole truth. Roe is now pro-life. Her lawyer turned pro-life. Find out about it. Search for pro-life info. Hear the other side.

God abhors the death of innocent children and it makes Him angry. They are not only His creation, they are a gift and a blessing. What would you do if you gave a gift to a loved one and without even unwrapping it, they smashed it and threw it away in front of you? What of the unborn? What about conception? If you think a child in the womb is not important, I was reading this morning in Isaiah and read in chapter 46 verses 3 & 4...

“Listen to Me, O house of Jacob, And all the remnant of the house of Israel, You have been borne by Me from birth (the belly), And have been carried from the womb; Even to your old age, I (I am He) shall be the same, And even to your graying years (gray hairs) I shall bear you!...”

In Psalms 22: 9 & 10 David prophecies Jesus’ death but speaks of His Immaculate Conception...“Yet thou art He who didst bring me forth from the womb; Thou didst make me trust when upon my mother’s breasts. Upon Thee I was cast from birth (a womb); Thou hast been my God from my mother’s womb.”

In Jeremiah 1:5 God talks to Jeremiah...“Before I formed you in the womb (KJV belly) I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

What profit is there in abortion?

Why do the evil ones want legal abortion? Jeremiah 22:17. Power and money. "But your eyes and your heart are intent only upon your own dishonest gain, and on shedding innocent blood and on practicing oppression and extortion." Who is oppressed and extorted by abortion? The woman! I am a woman. Do not keep me from being all I was meant to be. I was created to give birth and raise my children and use my talents to the glory of God! "For the wicked boasts of his heart's desire, And the greedy man (or blesses the greedy man) curses and spurns the Lord. The wicked, in the haughtiness of his countenance, does not seek Him. All his thoughts (plots) are, "There is no God."

Please understand that I believe in my Holy Father's everlasting love, and in His true justice. What could be more secure and stable for any child? I will not exact any punishment or vengeance as I am also worthy of punishment God is the perfect judge seeing into men's heart and mind. But I must lovingly warn those in power of God's anger and His impending judgment. Because of who He is, He cannot and will not let abortion go unpunished. And He will not necessarily punish the mother of the aborted child if she is innocent. When and how the judgment and punishment is carried out will be exact and fair and totally up to Him. When we sin and acknowledge our sin and ask forgiveness, He forgives us instantly and completely, but we tend to punish ourselves far longer. Please go to http://www.silentnomoreawareness.org/ to learn the true consequences of abortion for the mother. God does not always immediately let go His wrath for He is very patient, wanting us to see the evil of our way and stop. Because of this we often think we are not seen, and will get away with it. Psalms 148:8 "The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and great in lovingkindness,"

God hates shedding innocent blood.

Solomon said in Proverbs 6:16-19 that
"There are six things which the Lord hates,
Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him (of His soul):
Haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
And hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that run rapidly to evil,
A false witness who utters lies,
And one who spreads (sends out) strife among brothers.

The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying,
"...if you truly amend your ways and your deeds, if you truly practice justice between a man and his neighbor, if you do not oppress the alien, the orphan (fatherless), or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, nor walk after the other gods to your own ruin, then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever. Behold, you are trusting in deceptive words to no avail." Jeremiah 7:5-8

And again from Jeremiah 22:3, "Thus says the Lord, "Do justice and righteousness, and deliver the one who has been robbed from the power of his oppressor. Also do not mistreat or do violence to the stranger, the orphan, or the widow; and do not shed innocent blood in this place."

God the Avenger.

There is an all-knowing, all-powerful God and He hears the silent cries of the unborn, seeing into hearts and minds. He hears the cries of all the afflicted. And He does not forget. Psalms 9:12 states "For He who requires blood (avenges bloodshed) remembers them; He does not forget the cry of the afflicted."

Again in Ezekiel 16:20-23 the Lord God said to those being punished
“Moreover, you took your sons and daughters whom you had borne to Me, and you sacrificed them to idols (them) to be devoured. Were your harlotries so small a matter? You slaughtered My children, and offered them up to idols (them) by causing them to pass through the fire. And besides all your abominations and harlotries you did not remember the days of your youth, when you were naked and bare and squirming in your blood . Then it came about after all your wickedness (‘Woe, woe to you! Declares the Lord GOD), that you built yourself a shrine and made yourself a high place in every square.” Is abortion available in every square? Are the conceived killed with birth control pills available at the corner pharmacy?

Are we making policy according to the laws of our neighbors and “allies” and disregarding the true Law? Hear this...Thus says the Lord GOD, “Because your lewdness was poured out and your nakedness uncovered through your harlotries with your lovers and with all your detestable idols, and because of the blood of your sons which you gave to idols (them), therefore, behold, I shall gather all your lovers with whom you took pleasure, even all those whom you loved and all those whom you hated. So I shall gather them against you from every direction and expose your nakedness to them that they may see all your nakedness. Thus I shall judge you, like women who commit adultery or shed blood are judged; and I shall bring on you the blood of wrath and jealousy.” Ezekiel 16:36-38

Every society practicing child (whether born or unborn) sacrifice is going to be punished if there is no repentance. God doesn’t just punish and wipe out everyone. He always promises rebuilding and blessing if we walk in the right way. He cannot allow the world to kill the innocent unborn or born without just vengeance. They will be avenged. It is our choice to stop this abomination of abortion and to cry for mercy. Will we be judged and punished or will we choose, in humility, repentance, and forgiveness as did King Josiah. What will we choose in America where we have the freedom to choose, the Manasseh judgment or to be today’s Josiah generation?

In Ezekiel 20:25-28 we actually hear sarcasm...“And I also gave them statutes that were not good and ordinances by which they could not live; and I pronounced them unclean because of their gifts, in that they caused all their first-born (that which opens the womb) to pass through the fire so that I might make them desolate, in order that they might know that I am the LORD.”

In Ezekiel 22: 1-6 we again hear why judgment comes.

Then the word of the Lord came to me saying, “And you, son of man, will you judge, will you judge the bloody city? Then cause her to know all her abominations.“And you shall say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “A city shedding blood in her midst, so that her time will come, and that makes idols, contrary to her interest, for defilement!
“You have become guilty by the (your) blood which you have shed, and defiled by hour idols which you have made. Thus you have brought your day(s) near and have come to your years; therefore I have made you a reproach to the nations, and a mocking to all the lands.
“Those who are near and those who are far from you will mock you, you of ill repute, full of turmoil.
“Behold, the rulers of Israel, each according to his power (arm), have been in you for the purpose of shedding blood.
 “They have treated father and mother lightly within you. The alien they have oppressed in your midst; the fatherless and the widow they have wronged in you.
“You have despised My holy things and profaned My Sabbaths.
“Slanderous men have been in you for the purpose of shedding blood, and in you they have eaten at the mountain shrines. In your midst they have committed acts of lewdness.
“In you they have (he has) uncovered their fathers’ nakedness; in you they have humbled her who was unclean in her menstrual impurity.
“And one has committed abomination with his neighbor’s wife, and another has lewdly defiled his daughter-in-law. And another in you has humbled his sister, his father’s daughter.
“In you they have taken bribes to shed blood; you have taken interest and profits, and you have injured your neighbors for gain by oppression and you have forgotten Me,” declares the Lord God.’

Repent America!

It is America’s choice to follow Josiah in repentance and mourning or not. This is what the LORD God wants us all to do, listen to Jeremiah 23:16-22...
Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who are prophesying to you. They are leading you into futility; They speak a vision of their own imagination (heart), Not from the mouth of the Lord,
“They keep saying to those who despise Me, ‘The Lord has said, “You will have peace”’; And as for everyone who walks in the stubbornness of his own heart, They say, ‘Calamity will not come upon you.’
“But who has stood in the council of the Lord, that he should see and hear His word? Who has given heed to His (My) word and listened?
“Behold, the storm of the Lord has gone forth in wrath, Even a whirling tempest; It will swirl down on the head of the wicked. The anger of the Lord will not turn back Until He has performed and carried out the purposes of His heart; In the last days you will clearly understand it.
“I did not send these prophets, But they ran. I did not speak to them, But they prophesied. But if they had stood in My council, Then they would have announced My words to My people, And would have turned them back from their evil way And from the evil of their deeds.”

Jeremiah 22:3-5 This is very important...

‘Thus says the Lord, “Do justice and righteousness, and deliver the one who has been robbed from the power of his oppressor. Also do not mistreat or do violence to the stranger, the orphan, or the widow; and do not shed innocent blood in this place.
“For if you men will indeed perform this thing, then kings will enter the gates of this house, sitting in David’s place (for David) on his throne, riding in chariots and on horses, even the king himself and his servants and his people.
“But if you will not obey theses words, I swear by Myself,” declares the Lord, “that this house will become a desolation”

Listen to the LORD God who spoke to us through His prophets and is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Break the law and the fair consequences and punishment will be given. You can study history for yourself and see how the moral decline of a nation brings its demise. Where are we headed? Are we willing to continue sacrificing our children to appease our false god, whatever it is? And what should the church do? Pray and fast, weep and wail in mourning. Pray that God will remove the iniquity of the land. Beg forgiveness, cry for mercy. Protest the lawlessness of this land filled with the blood of the innocent and WARN OF THE COMING JUDGMENT.

It is coming, it’s just a matter of when, and I believe it will be at the time of the fullness of the Gentiles. So besides just outlawing abortion, let's do a total about face. Instead of supporting the abortion industry, let's support the adoption industry. Let's adopt life. Interesting to me (I love irony and satire), is the fact that approximately 53 million abortions have been performed in the United States alone. Feel like doing something good? Thanks to Oprah we know there are at least 45 million orphans in Southern Africa. God loves for us to take care of orphans. We are spiritual orphans and He has taken care of us. I pray for you to see the truth, to hear the truth. Therefore, hear the word of the Only True God and ask Him to show you the truth. He is a loving Father and will teach any who ask.

The Judgment of Manasseh is coming to the world of abortion.

The reason I write this is because I must warn of the coming judgment because in Ezekiel 3:18-21. God says, "When I say to the wicked, 'You shall surely die'; and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.
“Yet if you have warned the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself.
“Again, when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I place an obstacle before him, he shall die; since you have not warned him, he shall die in his sin, and his righteous deeds which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand.
“However, if you have warned (him) the righteous man that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; and you have delivered yourself.”

Some of you may think the Old Testament and God’s relationship to Israel are irrelevant to us today but because God has not changed, we can know God by studying His reaction to Israel’s choices in the past. As a Christian, I can study Israel’s history and growth and learn what it is like to live with God. As God the Father lived in the heart of Israel in the temple, God the Holy Spirit lives in the heart of those who believe in the Savior and are living a life of commitment to Him.

(After reading the above, it is important to remember God first judged those who originally lived in the land. Anyone who believes it cannot happen to America, think again. The people who settled here 400 years ago displaced a previous people and the Aztecs may have sacrificed humans, and even turned to cannibalism. There is evidence of human sacrifice in Ohio.) To appease this false god Molech (and another god Baal) it was the practice to pass the children through fire, burning them alive. Not unlike a saline abortion but probably bringing a faster death. The people could hear their baby’s screams. God hears the deepest base tones of the Giraffe, the elephant and the whale, the tree that falls in the forest, that we cannot. Believe me, He hears the silent screams of the unborn being aborted. I am sure with today’s technology we could, too. I am sorry to say I have recently heard the screams of the dying on the radio at the hands of terrorists. Also, 80% of communication is body language. Surely the abortionist could see the scream.

America's heritage.

You should also know that the people who first settled America came because they wanted to worship the God of the Bible. Our country was founded on the principles of life found in its pages. When the foundation deteriorates the building falls. “Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, ‘Because you have forgotten Me and cast Me behind your back, bear now the punishment of your lewdness and your harlotries.’” Ezekiel 23:35 RESTORE THE FOUNDATION! Teach the faith of our forefathers, the founders of our republic. Do not surrender to the anti-Christ. Do not bend your knee to Baal. Do not accept these abominations for there will be just requital for the sake of His name and all will know that He is the Lord GOD.

The word of the Lord also came to the prophet Zephaniah during Josiah’s reign. After reading this book I figured this was what Josiah heard when he decided to find out why God was mad. It was the FEAR of the Lord that motivated Josiah to search for the truth of the Law, not just respect. Listen to this and maybe you’ll agree!

Zephaniah 1:14-2:3
“Near is the great day of the Lord,
Near and coming very quickly;
Listen, the day of the Lord!
In it (there) the warrior cries out bitterly.
A day of wrath is that day,
A day of trouble and distress,
A day of destruction and desolation,
A day of darkness and gloom,
 A day of clouds and thick darkness,
A day of trumpet and battle cry,
 Against the fortified cities
And the high corner towers.
And I will bring distress on men,
So that they will walk like the blind,
Because they have sinned against the Lord;
And their blood will be poured out like dust,
And their flesh like dung.
Neither their silver nor their gold
Will be able to deliver them
On the day of the Lord’s wrath;
And all the earth will be devoured
In the fire of His jealousy,
For He will make a complete end,
Indeed a terrifying one,
Of all the inhabitants of the earth.
Gather yourselves together, yes, gather,
O nation without shame (longing),
Before the decree takes effect (is born)-
The day passes like the chaff-
Before the burning anger of the Lord comes upon you,
Before the day of the Lord’s anger comes upon you.
Seek the Lord,
All you humble of the earth (land)
Who have carried out His ordinances (justice);
Seek righteousness, seek humility.
Perhaps you will be hidden
In the day of the Lord’s anger."

So Josiah listens to Zephaniah and searches for the Law. He hears it all. He heard what they were doing wrong and heard the consequences and blessings promised in Deuteronomy 28-30. Obey God and receive His blessing. Disobey and receive believably disgusting punishments.

Take note America-

Deuteronomy 29:22-28
“Now the generation to come, your sons who rise up after you and the foreigner who comes from a distant land, when they see the plagues of the land and the diseases with which the Lord has afflicted it (made it sick), will say, ‘All its land is brimstone and salt, a burning waste, unsown and unproductive (it is not sown and does not cause to sprout), and no grass grows in it, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which the Lord overthrew in His anger and in His wrath.” And all the nations shall say, ‘Why has the Lord done thus to this land? Why this great outburst (heat) of anger?’“Then men shall say, ‘Because they forsook the covenant of the Lord, the God of their fathers, which He made with them when He brought them out of the land of Egypt.
‘And they went and served other gods and worshiped them, gods whom they have not known and whom He had not allotted (portioned) to them. ‘Therefore, the anger of the Lord burned against that land, to bring upon it every curse which is written in this book; and the Lord uprooted them from their land in anger and in fury and in great wrath, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.’”

Do we have diseases, plague, earthquakes, floods, and drought? Lots of diseases, not enough meds. Listen to God. Deuteronomy 30:19 & 20 “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants (seed), by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this (that) is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in (dwell in) the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.” So choose life to be blessed, choose death to be cursed.

How does God bless us? Zephaniah 8:4&5
“Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Old men and old women will again sit in the streets (squares) of Jerusalem, each man with his staff in his hand because of age (the multitude of days).
‘And the streets (squares) of the city will be filled with boys and girls playing in its streets (squares).’ Our populations are no longer growing. We are destroying our blessings. The blessing that comes from taking care of others, younger and older.

Declare a day of mourning.
The day abortion was legalized should be declared a national day of mourning. Mourning for the little ones aborted but born alive and moving, disposed of in bio-hazard bags to be sent out in the trash for burning. Bodies burned? Who is rising out of America’s smokestacks?

America beware. God knows where our molecules are before we are conceived and God knows where the bodies of the innocent are after disposal. Psalms 139:15 & 16
“My frame was (bones were) not hidden from Thee, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth. Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance;...”
I just finished a course in biology. Learned all about cells and molecular structure. In the depths of the earth were all the little molecules and ions that made up my body. God brought them together inside my mother. Is it ironic that the terrorist has been raised up to shed innocent blood? We fight those who kill the innocent - we call them cowards and they disgust us, infuriate us, but we allow it under certain conditions- for the health of the mother, rape, and incest. DO NOT SHED INNOCENT BLOOD. Put the abortion industry out of business and put families back in business.

I welcome your response but would rather you get the Word out. Can we not protect the life of the innocent by etching pro-life laws forever in the stone of our nation’s foundation? I really don’t want to see sinners in the hands of an angry God in my lifetime, or my son’s lifetime, or my son’s son’s lifetime. How many people have died in judgment from God? How many people are going to hell because no one told them the truth about its existence? How many sexually immoral people know what they are doing is making God angry? You now know that abortion is abhorrent to the One True God. You are without excuse. “If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin (guilt) but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates Me hates My Father also.” John 15:22. This is what Jesus said regarding those in charge of the people of God at that time. Those women and children going to clinics are not being told the truth, therefore they have an excuse - but not you.

During the week after 9/11 no one in America felt like laughing at anything. That lack of laughter was a glimpse of the mourning of hell where this is only weeping and gnashing of teeth, not even evil laughing. Hear the prayer of the pagans on the ship with Jonah ...” Then they called on the Lord and said, ‘We earnestly pray, O Lord, do not let us perish on account of this man’s life and do not put innocent blood on us; for Thou, O Lord, hast done as Thou has pleased.’‘ Lamentations was written during the first Manasseh Judgment. Read it.



Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom

and might and honor and glory and blessing." Revelation 5:12
Revelation 20:4-6
4 Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
 5 The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection.
 6 Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years.
