The Blood Payment

Dear beloved: As the blood of the innocents cries out from the land, we know it reaches the ears of Almighty God, and that God who measures and weighs all things will eventually call for a payment to be made for all that innocent shed blood. When God established a covenant with Noah after the flood, God said to him in Genesis 9:5 "And surely I will require your lifeblood; from every beast I will require it. And from every man from every man's brother I will require the life of man. v6 Whoever sheds man's blood, by man his blood shall be shed, For in the image of God He made man. v7 And as for you, be fruitful and multiply; Populate the earth abundantly and multiply in it." And God repeats this in Numbers 35:33 when He establishes cities of refuge for people to run to when they have accidentally taken the life of someone. He says, "so you shall not pollute the land in which you are; for blood pollutes the land and no expiation(payment) can be made for the land for the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it." And so we see that when 50 million babies' blood is shed on the land, a payment is due that staggers the imagination, and only by the mercy of God do we stand today to continue this ruthless destruction of God's most treasured creation.

Psalm 106 is a story, a recap of the journey of the children of Israel in the wilderness and in the promised land. In verse 37 the Lord tells us They even sacrificed theirs sons and daughters to the demons, v38 and shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan And the land was polluted with the blood. V39 Thus they became unclean in their practices, and played the harlot in their deeds. V40 Therefore, the anger of the Lord was kindled against His people, And He abhorred His inheritance. V41 Then He gave them into the hand of the nations; And those who hated them ruled over them. v42 Their enemies also oppressed them, And they were subdued under their power. v43 Many times He would deliver them; They, however, were rebellious in their counsel, and so sank down in their iniquity. And so we see that as the children of Israel played the harlot with the demons, so too are we playing the harlot with the demons established to destroy this country. The blood of the innocents is fueling the demonization of this nation, and is in large part responsible for the murder, rape, child molestation, and cold hearted disregard that many people have for each other; the spirit of lawlessness starts at the top and goes into every aspect of our society.

We need to get on our knees and pray for this nation, for its leaders, for our court judges and for those doctors and nurses in the abortion industry. Pray that the Lord would touch their hearts and lead them back to a place of righteousness and holiness, that they would not agree with any legislation or direction that would take this nation further down the path of destruction and a certain impending judgment. For the sake of our children and grandchildren it is imperative that we vote into office those who would work to turn back Roe vs. Wade and any other legislation that contiunes to fuel the demonization of America. May God bless you this day as you pray. in Christ, Jim
