It may be said to one another in conversation, “rarely do we see people rise up and do abominations unto the Lord.” However, is this really true? We shall soon see. There are things in life that we know are terrible and do not wish to speak of because of the gravity of the issues. It can bring back tears because of what took place, and how it could have been avoided. However, some people are ruthless and need to be exposed. This can be said of what king Ahaz did in his reign as king. My friends, when it comes to all the kings that reigned in Jerusalem, he was one of the worst. And here is why… It is recorded that he made idols for Baalim, a false god, and even sacrificed his own children there. It reads, 1“Ahaz was twenty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem: but he did not that which was right in the sight of the Lord, like David his father: For he walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, and made also molten images for Baalim. Moreover he burnt incense in the valley of the son of Hinnom, and burnt his children in the fire, after the abominations of the heathen whom the Lord had cast out before the children of Israel.” (2 Chronicles 28:1-3) This is very sad and should bring anyone to tears because of what he did to his own children. However, did you know that this same vial act is happening now? You may ask. “How? I see no children being sacrificed to idols!” And my response would be, “have you ever heard of abortions?” My friends, abortions are the same thing, when it comes to sacrificing our own children for the welfare of our own selves. Just as Ahaz felt good about this, for he was doing it unto his man-made god, people also feel good about this vial act in the moment, for they say they are now better off financially, with no pregnancy and no children. However, all this will eventually turn on people who do not repent of these abominations. Now, if you do not know how God feels about these kinds of vial acts, then know that His wrath is poured out upon such wicked people.
Because of what Ahaz did, 1“the Lord his God delivered him into the hand of the king of Syria; and they smote him, and carried away a great multitude of them captives, and brought them to Damascus. And he was also delivered into the hand of the king of Israel, who smote him with a great slaughter. For Pekah the son of Remaliah slew in Judah an hundred and twenty thousand in one day, which were all valiant men; because they had forsaken the Lord God of their fathers.” (2 Chronicles 28:5-6) He may not have died in this war, but his people did suffer much because of him. Even 1“the Lord brought Judah low because of Ahaz king of Israel; for he made Judah naked, and transgressed sore against the Lord.” (2 Chronicles 28:19) Even in 1“his distress did he trespass yet more against the Lord: this is that king Ahaz. For he sacrificed unto the gods of Damascus, which smote him: and he said, Because the gods of the kings of Syria help them, therefore will I sacrifice to them, that they may help me. But they were the ruin of him, and of all Israel. And Ahaz gathered together the vessels of the house of God, and cut in pieces the vessels of the house of God, and shut up the doors of the house of the Lord, and he made him altars in every corner of Jerusalem. And in every several city of Judah he made high places to burn incense unto other gods, and provoked to anger the Lord God of his fathers.” (2 Chronicles 28:22-25) So how did God feel about his idolatry, him desecrating the house of the Lord, and sacrificing his own children to his god? The answer is, that He was angry with him. The same can be said for every woman that has an abortion. Even God’s wrath is stirred up against the husband, boyfriend, or parents, who are for it. Killing unborn babies is murdering God’s children. Please think about this. These people that do not repent will be cast into the lake of fire. So repent, if you have ever been involved with an abortion yourself.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, my heart is torn right now, because of the amount of bloodshed that is in the world we live in. So many people are so selfish in what they are doing. They don’t care that unborn babies are killed, as long as they are better off financially. This is so ridiculous. What this is God, is nothing different then what happened of old with people sacrificing their own children to Baalim or other gods. What was wicked then is even more wicked now. So I pray that people will wake up to their sins and begin to follow You. These things are very grievous in Your sight, and I pray that people will repent and to You today about it. I know that in their prayers, You will hear their confessions and have mercy even for them. In our tears do You come and deliver us from the bondage of sin we are under. I know this to be true God, for I was a vial sinner myself until I finally came to You in prayer. I needed to surrender all to You, and then forgiveness was found. Even Your blood was able to cover me and cleanse me of all my sins. So I pray that women, men, their friends, and parents that have been involved with abortions to repent. May they come to an understanding of the gravity of the situation and call upon Your Name today. This is no laughing matter, for a precious soul was now murdered. Even their blood is crying from the dust, because of what has happened. Even now, Lord, I can see the pain that this has caused to the unborn and to You also. Oh, the lost people of this generation. They truly have something coming to them, come judgment day. Only if Your blood has covered them, will they be found worthy, otherwise, these unwise people will be found unworthy and be cast into the lake of fire. I know that every unborn baby that is killed is now with You in heaven, but there must be justice made because of their behalf. People cannot just get away with such crimes of murder. Only You can wash away their sins. So I plead for people to not risk losing their salvation because of these sins, but get right with You today. I love You, God. I glorify in Your holy Name. Amen.
