Horror in Paradise. New York’s Abortion Law. Judgments are Coming.
So much is happening these days, but I want to focus specifically on recent disasters, abortion in America, and God’s coming judgments. During the weekend of January 18 and 19, 2019, I was with my associate Ron Fleck in Red Bluff, California, for a series of prophecy meetings. On Friday afternoon, the 18th, we had a few extra hours to visit the nearby town of Paradise that had previously been devastated by The Camp Fire. What we saw was almost unbelievable.
As we drove around town, we saw this:
The most shocking part was seeing some houses standing, untouched by flames, while right beside them were other houses that were piles of rubble. The Scripture, “Two shall be in the field, the one shall be taken, and the other left” (Matthew 24:40) came forcibly to my mind. It reminded me that humans are saved individually, not in groups. Soon Jesus Christ will separate the wheat from the tares, the sheep from the goats (see Matthew 25:31,32). Dear friend, we need to know Jesus individually. If we don’t, we will be destroyed with Satan and his angels in the fierce fires of the last great day (see Matthew 25:41 and Revelation 20:14,15).
One of the biggest recent news stories is New York’s “Reproductive Health Act” making it legal to abort a baby up until the time of birth. I realize that there are different circumstances and opinions on this controversial law, but God Himself says, “You shall not kill.” Exodus 20:13. Based on God’s word, my view is that it is WRONG to take the life of an innocent child in the womb (unless a mother’s life is truly at risk, which is rare, or if the child cannot possibly survive after birth). Children conceived from rape, incest, or who are handicapped, have rights, too. Who knows what God will do with such children?
Should handicapped adults be killed, too? If not, how can we justify killing handicapped unborn children? God says, “I formed you in the womb.” Jeremiah 1:5. Each child is valuable, for it is created in the image of God. This world is filled with sexual sins, and the vast majority of abortions occur primarily because unwed mothers don’t want to be pregnant. As a result, innocent children are slaughtered. Using the language of the Apocalypse, such “sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered [these] iniquities.” Revelation 18:5. Matthew C. Harrison, the President of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, has spoken out clearly against New York’s ghoulish new abortion ruling.
“Shall I not visit these things? says the Lord: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?” Jeremiah 5:29. In Bible days, when ancient Israel participated in gross sins, God’s judgments finally fell as Babylonian armies brought divine retribution. New judgments will soon descend on immoral America, and around the world. As abortion laws get looser, and as more innocent blood flows, we can expect more fires (like The Camp Fire), more earthquakes, more floods, and more hurricanes to strike as divine judgments from a holy God. US Midwest Freezes, Australia burns: this is the age of weather extremes,” reported Today.
More is coming. Much more.
To understand the true evil of abortion, and the life-long pain it so often brings to women who kill their babies, watch our 13-part TV series (on DVD) called, “The Abortion Controversy: Two Women Tell their Stories of Hope and Healing,” or read our little pocketbook, Hidden Holocaust: Discover God’s Love in the Abortion Nightmare, or read, “Why Pro-life: Caring for unborn babies and their mothers.” To learn more about what the Bible says about the future, read our pocketbook, The Coming Judgments of God.
As our world descends into moral chaos, let’s remember the words of God Himself who said, “I will punish the world for its evil” (Isaiah 13:11). Yet He also says, “None of them that trust in Him shall be desolate.” Psalm 34:22
“Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” Revelation 22:20
