Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings. When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.(Psalm 9:11-12)
The message of Psalm 9, is the coming of the Lord. He comes to deliver Israel from the enemies who besiege her in the last days. He comes to Judge the world in righteousness. He comes to put an end to the wanton destruction of the enemy.
Here we see another of the reasons the Lord comes again, He comes as the judge to to make inquisition for blood. We like to think that we have progressed beyond the brutality of past ages. But really we live in a bloody age, in fact even in America and the west, oceans of innocent blood have been shed.
Consider that America has recently passed a grisly landmark; our fifty millionth abortion! As a civilization, we have callously shed the blood of our most vulnerable and innocent, infants in the womb. Do we not remember the solemn warning Jesus uttered about causing “little ones to stumble”?
He has heard the “silent scream” of our little ones, He knows each one of them, and shall soon avenge each one of them. But we have willingly elected to the highest office of our land, a man who as a legislator went far beyond abortion, He vigorously resisted a move to enact a law requiring medical services should an infant survive abortion! The blood of these babies cries out from the very ground!
How many teenaged girls have been coerced into abortion, quenching their very femininity in the act, killing not only the baby but the soul of the mother? God has seen this and will visit us in judgment for it. Did you know there are approximately ten times less Downs syndrome babies than there ever were before? Where did they go? God knows.
There is other bloodletting that He is coming to visit us in judgment for. What of our violent , crime ridden cities?
Virtual armies of fatherless children throng our cities, assaulting people at will in race based attacks on strangers, beating people so they can film the beatings and post them on Youtube. Who is responsible for the breakdown of the family? The racial hatred that is kept artificially stoked? The deliberate division of society for political benefit? The Lord is coming to make inquisition for blood!
Consider also the falsely called “religion of peace”, whose “prophet” was a pirate and rapist, and whose “holy book” incites hatred and violence throughout the world. For fourteen centuries this religion has inflicted violence, murder, war and slavery upon the world, rivers of blood have stained the earth in the name of this pagan religion.
The Muslims harbor a particular hatred for Israel, Ezekiel calls it the “perpetual hatred”,
Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end: Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: sith thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.(Ezekiel 35:5-6)
On the October 23, 2000, cover of Time magazine, a photo featured a young Arab leaning out an upper story window waving blood soaked hands to a cheering crowd below. The story explained that two Russian Jewish reservists had taken a wrong turn and ended up in a Muslim neighborhood in Ramallah. A baying crowd hounded them down, and murdered them with their bare hands. God saw that.
Recently, members of the Fogel family, including an infant, who lived in Judea (the “west bank”) were slaughtered in their sleep by two Muslim terrorists. When the news of this cowardly slaughter surfaced, Muslims in Gaza and the West Bank, passed out candies in the streets in celebration.
The bloodletting of the Nazi’s, and of the centuries long Communist revolution has been noted by God. It isn’t only Jews who have been or are being slaughtered by Muslims, Nazi’s and Communists, but there is a particular vehemence in the hatred for the seed of Abraham in these bloody movements. This is God hatred at work.
The Lord is coming to make inquisition for blood, he is going to regard the blood that has been shed as innocent blood, as the Prophet Joel, (in the chapter that reads as though we are reading todays newspaper), states assuredly in the name of the LORD,
Judah will be inhabited forever
and Jerusalem through all generations.
Shall I leave their innocent blood unavenged?
No, I will not.”(Joel 3:20-21)
