As we have slaughtered our own innocents, why shouldn’t Molech send others to slaughter us … especially as we cannot protest our innocence.
Steve, as I was reading in the Word this morning (Jeremiah, if you
must know), the following are some of the thoughts which came to mind,
and which I feel led to forward on to you. What you will do with
them, I don’t know; but I have learned long ago that if there is any
wisdom in my words, it comes from God. Therefore…:
We have slain our own innocents.
We have shed their blood and “parted them out” as if they were used cars.
Because we have done this to our own children, the children of other
peoples are flooding our lands. And because we have done this for a
generation, it is that generation that comes upon us — yet they show
us no more love than we showed our own children, whom we have slaughtered.
Why should we be surprised at their desire to “part us out” in turn?
We have served Molech and sought after Mammon. Neither of these gods
has ever served well those who served them. Why should we expect
As we have slaughtered our own innocents, why shouldn’t Molech send
others to slaughter us … especially as we cannot protest our innocence.
Likewise, Greed has become our god, and WII-FM (What’s In It For Me)
our oracle, why should we be surprised when others — even greedier
than us and more successful at “acquisition” than we have been — steal
our true wealth and replace it with mere paper and pixels? That which
glittered and sparkled before our eyes is turning out to be no more
than tinsel and broken glass.
Esau at least got a bowl of pottage for his birthright; we have traded
ours for no more than a soon-memory of “good times”, and a massive
“hangover” to accompany the memories … and in the final analysis, we
have only ourselves to blame.
At least, we still have time to repent.
May our Lord and Savior be with you and yours,
