Daily Devotional for Wednesday April 2, 2014
The Equivalent to the Furnaces of the Nazi Death Camps are Still Burning in 2014!
(Exodus 20:13; Psalm 106:38; Jeremiah 1:5)
***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, based on the statement you made in yesterday's Devotional about the small percentage of Christians who have ever led anyone to faith in Jesus, I honestly don't know if I have or not. When the opportunity has presented itself, I have always done my best to acquaint people with what the Bible says about salvation. I'd like to think at least one person might have followed up and came to accept the Lord as their Savior by faith, but I truly don't know and guess I'll have to wait until Heaven before I find out. Thoughts?
ANSWER: I probably should have been more articulate in that statement, since of course it is up to each person to accept or reject Christ by faith. More correct, it is still a very small percentage of Believers who have even WITNESSED their faith to someone who was lost and without Christ in their life. As God told the "watchman" in Ezekiel 33, if you fail to share the Gospel with a lost soul and they die and end up in hell, their blood is on your hands. However, if you share with them the Gospel and they choose to reject it, your hands are clean. ALL followers of Jesus Christ are commanded to share their faith, a commandment only a small percentage obey.
The equivalent to the furnaces of the Nazi death camps are still burning in the year 2014!!! 70 years after the furnaces in places like Auschwitz, Belzec, Sorbibor, and Tremblinka were extinguished, they are back in business in hospitals located in the U.K. Several hospitals in the U.K. are incinerating aborted children as clinical waste, or BURNING THEM TO HELP HEAT THE HOSPITALS!!!
Have I got your attention??? You can sit there and be outraged by what is happening in the U.K., asking how in the year 2014 could such an atrocity happen, but are you equally as outraged over the apx. 4,000 innocent babies we slaughter in the United States alone every 24 hours???
This nation not just murders apx. 4,000 innocent babies every 24 hours, it CELEBRATES infanticide! A major cable news network MSNBC, a division of NBC owned by media giant Comcast, 24/7 promotes, advocates for, cheerleads, and actually CELEBRATES the slaughter of innocent babies in this nation as does the vast majority of the media! Of course, they do it under the guise of "protecting women's reproductive rights" and "championing women's health issues." These are nothing but codewords like "choice" for the support of killing innocent babies!!!
Want another great example? The University of Michigan recently paid an artist named Heather Ault $1,000 to display a piece of her "art" that is a painting with the words, "Abortion is a Gift from God!" How many times have I told you about the boldness of satan's minions that is sharply contrasted by the timidity of God's people???
Here is why abortion IS a big deal. Did you ever wonder if there is a correlation between the fact we started to legally kill babies in this nation in 1973, about the same time we began to see a massive spiritual decline in this nation? Coincidence? I think not! Just like in our individual lives, our nation's blessings are tied to our obedience to God. Legally killing babies is a big deal since how can we ever expect God to bless a land that is flooded with the blood of incident babies?
I know that it is not politically correct to talk about abortion any longer. Sadly, very few nationally-known pastors will EVER talk about this issue. It is bad for their business. Those who look to fill their churches with warm bodies through man-made marketing plans like seeker/purpose driven/emerging church/prosperity gospel by preaching a watered down and compromised message, don't like the abortion issue since it makes people uncomfortable. Except for a handful of brave Catholic bishops and priests, you hear virtually nobody from the church in the marketplace taking a stand against this blatant act of infanticide.
I have been saying for years that this one issue alone is enough to bring down God's wrath and judgment on this nation. Sadly, President Bush lied to those who voted for him about working to minimize abortions, and squandered our last real opportunity we may ever have to deal with this issue politically. President Obama is a stanch defender of the practice of infanticide and the most pro-death President in history. He is a hero to those in the pro death movement and the business of killing babies around the world has flourished under Obama.
Those who defend him state that it is the law, that he is only upholding the law. The fact is, he has voted 100% of the time during his political career to uphold the legalized killing of babies, including late-term abortionswhich is the most heinous act of aborting perfectly viable babies who could have survived outside the womb if allowed to live. I contend that any politician who votes to uphold abortion has the blood of innocent babies on their hands and is truly an evil person!!!
As a side note. For those in the pro-death movement who want to make believe this is about women's health or reproductive rights, that is a bunch of garbage. This is about the LIFE OF A HUMAN BEING! I agree a woman has the right to do whatever she wants with her body, BUT NOT THE BODY OF SOMEONE ELSE! That baby may be inside her, but it is still a separate human life created by God!
I love you and care about you so much. The atrocious act of using aborted babies to heat hospitals in the U.K. is probably something most people simply don't even care about. That is only further proof of how callous most have become when it comes to the act of killing innocent babies. I refuse to be silent on what is by far the most critical spiritual issue there is. You simply can't close your eyes and act like this brutal act of murder doesn't exist.
I see the Hollywood crowd and people who normally spit in the face of God get so upset about the atrocities in Darfur and other places on the globe. Why aren't these same people as upset with the fact every 24 hours we slaughter 4,000 innocent babies??? Where is their outrage about this daily act of infanticide happening on our very soil???
On the Liveprayer.com homepage, we have a special 55 second video clip of an actual abortion being performed. If you have not watched it, YOU MUST! This is what happens to over 4,000 innocent babies EVERY DAY in this nation! Since God led me to get this footage and put it on the website nearly two years ago, we have had over 30,000 emails from women we know of who were contemplating having an abortion, watched the video, and changed their mind (Watch the incredible testimony of baby Delilah also on that same link).
Despite the several death threats and scathing emails I get every month just from having that video on my website, I want the world to see what really happens to millions of babies here in the United Sates and around the world every year. Abortion is a big deal since it not only kills 1.5 million babies in this nation alone, but it is already bringing down the wrath and judgment of God on this nation for the practice of infanticide.
While not minimizing the horrors of the Holocaust in any way, a modern day holocaust has been occurring in the United States DAILY for the past 41 years since this nation's Supreme Court legalized infanticide, an act of rebellion against God and His Word that has ripped out the soul of this nation!!!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
