BA’- AL – IN PRESENT DAY AMERICA
God chose Israel as a people set apart from others. He caused his prophets to come against those that did not adhere to His plan. Jehovah spoke with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He spoke to Moses, and He continues to speak through the Word of God.
In the Old Testament King Ahab married Jezebel who was not Jewish. She was the daughter of Eth’baal king of the Zidonians. They served Ba’al and worshipped this pagan god. She introduced the worship of Ba’al to Israel, and with this brought in child sacrifice. This was an abomination to the Lord.
God sent prophet after prophet including Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Isaiah, and others to warn Israel of their “sin.” They were told that they would go into bondage if they continued the practices of Ba’al, but they did not listen. Because of their sin of idolatry and killing of the innocent they went into exile for 70 years. They later were scattered throughout the earth.
God wanted a pure race, but his chosen people chose their own way.
In 1973 our Supreme Court made it a law that abortion was legal. They took it out of each individual state and made it the “law of the land.” In other words, the court made it legal for the spirit of Ba’al to come into our nation. It was a landmark decision. This week, that decision was overturned. It was never the right of the Federal Government to legislate abortion. The Supreme Court is to interpret laws, not make laws. Now, that decision is sent back to each individual state where constitutionally it belonged so each state will make its own choice about it.
At the same time our present administration has said it will bring laws forth that will make it legal in every state. This again means that this administration is bringing the spirit of Ba’al and making the shedding of innocent blood a priority. Many in our current legislative branch, made up of Senate and House of Representatives back this. The ungodly want their way in this.
Because of the shedding of innocent blood, our nation has been under a curse. Deuteronomy 19:10 says, “That innocent blood be not shed in thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and so blood be upon thee.” In II Kings 21:16 it says, “Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; beside his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of the LORD.”
In Psalms 106:36-38 it says, “And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them. Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, and shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.” One of the seven things that God hates is found in Proverbs 6:17, “…. hands that shed innocent blood.”
What determines innocent blood? It is the sacrifice of innocent children whether after birth or before birth in the womb. God forbids this.
A prophet recently was given a word from the Lord, and said, “America, idolatry, and spiritual whore.” Our nation has brought these “false idols and false gods” into our land and people are worshipping them. People have succumbed to the lies of Satan that say they have a right to their own body. They say, “My body, my choice.” Yet, that is not what God says.
God has not changed his mind my friends. We are under the influence of the spirit of Ba’al just like Israel was and have not repented of our sin. States still allow abortion, which is shedding of innocent blood. I am thankful that Roe vs. Wade was overthrown, and now we need to pray that every state will make it illegal to shed innocent blood.
How long do we have before America falls like the nation of Israel did in the bible? I believe we have gone beyond the wakeup call, and the hammer of justice is falling. It will fall first on churches that believe that abortion is okay. God will judge them first. It will fall on Christians that believe that it is “my body, my choice.” Then it will fall on our nation that has not repented.
Now there are those that have gone through abortion. I am not here to condemn you. But you must repent. You must understand that God was not pleased with this. Once you have repented, it is washed away in the blood of Jesus. God will not condemn you and neither will I.
On the other hand, the leadership of our nation has not done this. Our leadership is controlled by the spirit of Ba’al, and a nation is judged by what the leadership does.
Shedding innocent blood is not a choice. God has the final word, and He says it is wrong. Let us remove the spirit of Ba’al from our lives and our lands. Make a stand for God and His word.
