Forty Days, Morning and Evening… a way to look at Roe v Wade

And the Philistine drew near and presented himself forty days, morning and evening.( I Samuel 17:16)

Upon this the fortieth anniversary of the abominable Roe v Wade decision which has split our nation on as profound a level as at the time of the American Civil War, the Story of David and Goliath comes to mind.

Bible stories such as this one are too often relegated to children’s books, felt boards, and sunday school lessons or sentimental preaching about the virtue of individual courage. This approach is misguided, Bible stories are for serious adults. Though historically true, they also serve as prophecies about the first and second comings of Jesus, as well as of the fate of Israel, the nations, and as a spiritual filter by which to interpret all of life.

In other words, David and Goliath replays itself in future history, so also the story of Joseph, Jonah, Noah, etc. Israel has yet to encounter GOG, the ‘Anti Christ’, the ultimate Goliath who will challenge her very existence until the ultimate ‘David’ from Bethlehem enters the final world scene to deal the decisive head blow to the final representative of all anti-God power on earth.

The application I get, on this the fortieth anniversary of Roe vs Wade, came to me when I read that Goliath stood out in a field and taunted Israel for forty mornings and evenings. That the inspired writer used the expression , ‘mornings and evenings’, draws attention to the  sacred pattern of life in Israel, as ordained by the Law of God.

Every morning and Evening a sacrifice was made to God for the nation, indicating that Israel had seen her need for forgiveness by sacrifice, and had come to God as a constant supplicant.

Goliath chose to come at the very time of those sacrifices, his taunting was a profane mockery of Israel’s God, worship and sanctity. He stands there in the midst of the Holy land, as an obscene denial of everything Israel believed and professed, challenging and seemingly defeating all comers.

This is how I view the last forty years in America. Abortion and all that support it, is the visible evil, the monstrosity standing before us, defying everything America once stood for; the sanctity of life, protection of the weak and innocent, the future as an optimistic hope, the Christian nation*, liberty with self-control, self-government, etc.

For forty long years this abomination has publicly withstood all challengers, any elections or referendums to outlaw it, all political attempts to defund it( like a parasite it feeds off of the public trough), valiant movements such as Operation Rescue, and the countless other Right to Life movements, the opposition of the Catholic church, massive public demonstrations, sidewalk counselors, the crisis pregnancy center movement.

The Abortion movement taunts us, as Goliath did. For example Planned Parenthood recently gushingly announced that 2012 was a banner year for abortion. This eugenically inspired death corporation has also produced Christmas coupons, to give free abortions as gifts!

How Long Oh Lord?

There have been countless exposes of the Nazi like roots of Planned Parenthood, ( there’s Orwellian doublespeak in that name isn’ t there? ). but all to little or no effect.

The racist Margaret Sanger wanted to use abortion to eradicate ‘human weeds’, such as Negroes, and the Southern European Immigrants who were flooding our shores at the time. Sanger was driven by a vision of ‘racial purity’ that even earned her the admiration of Adolph Hitler and the early Nazi party.

Now at the end of the Forty years of daily taunting, Demoralizing , in your face evil, the debasing of public morals, the coarsening of women, the profaning of sexuality and the family, and the cheapening of all human life, Abortion has found it’s ultimate champion, Barak Hussein Obama.

Has Goliath yet reached his zenith, here in America? We hope so. This President  would use his power to force Christians to finance abortions against their will, and is brazen about it, fining any who would dare assert their freedom of religion, a million and half dollars a day,(As he did the company called Hobby Lobby). He also championed infanticide in the cases where infants should be born alive in spite of abortion.

Obama taunts, mocks, struts and profanes the faith of all who would resist the sin of abortion.

Where do we turn at this juncture? In the story of David and Goliath, at the fortieth day of this tribulation, when it became obvious to Israel itself, that they couldn’t save themselves, God sent help.

Help came to Israel, in the form of a lad from Bethlehem, the future King David. This shepherd boy seemed to be the least likely answer to the problem, but Goliath proved no match for him. David cut off Goliath’s head with his own sword, and won the victory for Israel that day.

We have a heavenly David, Jesus, whose coming is soon. There is an ancient prophecy that by the “seed of the woman” a fatal blow will be rendered to the Serpent, a head wound,

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.(Genesis 3:15)

Dear God we cry out to you, please remove this blot from our nation, and heal the wounds that Evil has inflicted. Deliver us from evil, and from all who support it! May we be used to ‘snatch’ some of these evil doers out of the very fires of hell which they deserve, please put an end to this demonic slaughter of the innocent…bring this citadel of evil down dear lord, we beseech thee in Jesus name!

 

 

*I know America has never been a theocracy, in that sense there can be no Christian nation, but I refer to the overwhelmingly Christian consensus of most of our population from the Puritans, through the founders, nourished by several Gracious revivals, and even up into the last century.

    What if abortion is God’s judgment? For I believe that is exactly what it is. Our people turned from the truth and God has let us go our own way. And the farther and farther away from God and His truth we go, the worse we will become. What is worse than paying someone to murder your own baby in cold blood? What is worse than perverting every good gift of God and destroying it in the process? What is worse than delighting in perversion and evil? What is worse than calling good evil, and calling evil good? We have believed that men were basically good. We did not want to believe God’s word about the sinful heart of man. We thought we could be good without God. Even the visible church reduced Christianity down to just saying a prayer to “get” eternal life. Therefore, God has abandoned us. He lets proud mockers go their own way; He lets them have their way and eat the bitter fruit of their ways. Today the tables are turned and our own children rise up and kill their own parents in cold blood. Is this not God’s judgment on us? Wake up America!

    20 Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares;
    21 at the head of the noisy street she cries out, in the gateways of the city she makes her speech:
    22 “How long will you simple ones love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge?
    23 If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you.
    24 But since you rejected me when I called and no one gave heed when I stretched out my hand,
    25 since you ignored all my advice and would not accept my rebuke,
    26 I in turn will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when calamity overtakes you—
    27 when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you.
    28 “Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me.
    29 Since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD,
    30 since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke,
    31 they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes.
    32 For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them;
    33 but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.” Proverbs 1:20-33

    The US slaughters its future, while the modern-day priesthood of Molech grows fat, wealthy and powerful and the power of the State urges women to pass their children through the fire (as apt a description of a saline abortion as any). Dazzling. Sometimes I think it’s only a matter of God settling who our Nebbuchanezzer will be, who will put this nation of Zedekiahs out of its misery.
