The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

History Does Repeat Itself

Israel slaughtered their children by placing them alive on the outstretched arms of the demon god Molech (Psalm 106:37) where the child fell into a burning inferno in the belly of the idol. God's reaction was recorded by Jeremiah:

"...they have filled this place with the blood of innocent children...They built high places for Baal in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to sacrifice their sons and daughters to Molech, though I never commanded, nor did it enter my mind, that they should do such a detestable thing and so make Judah sin." (Jeremiah 19:4, 32:35) 

Michael Spielman, founder of, makes this comment,

"This is a stunning statement to come from the mouth of a sovereign and all-knowing God!...The domestication of abortion has made it tragically common place so much so that we seem to have lost our ability to be outraged by it. How is is that even we who oppose abortion are not more overwhelmed by the fact that it is legal, in the United States of America, to tear apart the tiny bodies of helpless unborn children." ("A Biblical Mandate to do Something About Abortion")

There is a distinct parallel between child sacrifice to Molech and abortion. Rev. Thomas Euteneuer draws the connection when he writes,

"The spiritual dimension of...[abortion] its systematizing of ritual blood sacrifice to the god of child murder, Moloch...This demon of murder appears in many forms and cultures through history (Phoenician, Carthaginian, Canaanite, Celt, Indian, Aztec and others) but is always the same bloodthirsty beast that demands the killing of children as his form or worship.

“This demon is not content with a single act of murder here and there. His insatiable appetite for the death of innocents seeks public endorsement to justify his gruesome deeds, and he needs a systematic expression of it to increase his worship. The modern abortion industry offers ritual blood sacrifice to the ancient abortion demon. it is in every way a demonic religion.

May I suggest the Church, either by benign neglect or by design, has failed to recognize  and or acknowledge the spiritual context in which one must place abortion in response to the Biblical evidence. Abortion is a satanic enterprise (John 8:44, 10:10) and our failure to acknowledge this fact has contributed to the silence, and at best, marginal response of the Church to America’s abortion crisis.

If abortion is demonic, there is only one conclusion for the Church. The Body of Christ, the Church, is the only organism (institution) spiritually equipped to engage the satanic forces behind abortion. Therefore the Church must take the lead in the effort to end abortion.

It is also noteworthy that God claimed the children sacrificed to Molech belonged to Him.

"And you took your sons and daughters whom you bore TO ME and sacrificed them as food to the dols...You slaughtered MY children and sacrificed them to idols." 
(Ezekiel 16:20-21 emphasis mine) 

I believe that one reason even those in the pro-life Church, in the words of Spielman, "...seem to have lost our ability to be outraged” by the ritual sacrifice of the unborn in America today, is that we have failed to acknowledge God’s view of the shedding of innocent blood of HIS children. His words, recorded by Ezekiel convey his sentiments. We do well to consider them.

Psalm 106 records the inevitable response of God to the shedding of innocent blood to Molech,

“Therefore the Lord was angry with his people and abhorred his inheritance. He handed them over to the nations, and their foes ruled over them. Their enemies oppressed them and subjected them to their power.” (Psalm 106:40-42) 

You can read Jeremiah’s prophecy of the gruesome siege of Jerusalem in chapter 19 of the book of Jeremiah.

Lou Engle draws this sobering conclusion from the Biblical record,

“Blood pollution comes on the land when innocent blood is shed. That sacrificing of babies is fueling the demonization of our nation. A day of reckoning is coming to USA without God’s mercy and through intercessors and action to stop abortion.”

History has warned us. History does repeat itself.

“What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9)
