The Dance of Moloch (Part 1): The Physically Aborted

I will return to "The Blistered Man" series when I feel led by the Lord to post another article on it, but for now the Lord has been pressing upon me to write on this related subject.

At the end of my last post, the Lord revealed to me what may perhaps be a common metaphor to many, but was quite uncommon to me.  It is from that metaphor that I wish to base the following post(s?) off of.

To set the entire tone of this series, I wish to include a writing that I put together about a year and a half ago. It will also be the basis of these posts.

The Dance of Moloch
The law of nature is, in a rightful sense, repetition. In the spring the orchards grow from small acorns, the flowers blossom from unsuspecting seedlings into a beautiful tapestry that designs the landscape of the forests and the fields. The seasons wear on, summer and fall pass, and winter comes and transforms the scene into a world of gray, and the process is repeated with a new generation of things to come. It is rhythm. This is the nature of all things mortal: to live and to die, but also, to birth new life. In the world of the immortals death is seized from the equation. Though, the undying things follow natural tendencies as well. God himself has his own nature, of love, righteousness, and justice. He also shares the characteristics of living, and breeding new life with the mortal realm, as shown in everything that is seen in and around the world itself. The Fallen, those immortal beings who rebelled against God’s nature, have features of their own. They are living; yet they seek the opposite of God’s natural essence. As God searches out life in a dead world, they pursue and search out death, and seek to destroy new life before it takes its first gasp of earthly air. Thus, is the war of good and evil, the war between God’s nature and the nature of the Fallen.

Seeing as Adam ate the apple in the beginning and rejected the nature of God, humans had selected to follow the unnatural nature of the Fallen. From that point on, God sought to restore the balance in the world. The balance assembled on Calvary, and the symbol of the death of Sin is certainly a balanced, symmetrical one. As this balance was refurbished and cured, the Fallen, who had roamed freely on the earth before it, had fled into hiding, yet their presence had not faded.

The Fallen, or the demons, had roamed liberally on the earth before the thunderclap of the nails being driven into Christ’s hands and feet was heard. They were worshipped and served by many of the ancients of the world. The most perverse and arguably evil of the ancient empires is that of Carthage.
The Carthaginians worshipped a truly evil demon, one known as Moloch. The worship of that demon is the perfect showcase of his predisposition, as G.K. Chesterton puts it in the Everlasting Man,

“Moloch was not a myth; or at any rate his meal was not a myth. These highly civilized people really met together to invoke the blessing of heaven on their empire by throwing hundreds of their infants into a large furnace. We can only realize the combination by imagining a number of Manchester merchants with chimneypot hats and mutton-chops whiskers, going to church every Sunday at eleven o’clock to see a baby roasted alive.”

By his nature, Moloch, who demanded children as sacrifice, had devoured his own children of Carthage, just as the mythological god, called Saturn, devoured his.

The point is this, that Moloch’s spirit is alive in the modern world, just as he was alive in the ancient world. He is a spirit whose appetite for the blood of the youthful is never quenched. He now resembles that of a vampire, who prowls through the night, seeking to suck the blood from those who are defenseless: children. Moloch has found his new home; it is that of the United State of America. As the balance was set back in place by Christ, Moloch was forced to change his ways, even his name. Over the centuries of existence he has been called many things aside from Moloch, one could call him Lucifer, Satan, the Devil, Baal, Beelzebub, and yes, Moloch. But his new name is more frightening than all the former combined: Choice. (Note: Moloch is not Satan, he is subservient to Him, yet all demons fall under the same authority, and that is Satan himself)

As is the unnatural nature of the Beast to turn things holy upside down, he has convinced the foolish man and woman that the gift of free will, is also the gift of free murder, or in this case abortion, and taking that gift without consequence. But the law of nature calls for a reaction to any action. It could also be said that when a choice is made, a particular path is chosen as well. The choice to abort a child is not so much on the path to murder, as it is on the path to sacrifice. Abortion is the sacrifice of a child to the god of all things dark and terrible, Moloch, and the United States is his greatest follower of the modern world.

The law of God, or the nature of God states, thou shall not murder, or thou shall not abort. The unnatural law of Moloch could be stated, as thou shall abort all things living. The rhythm of any nature is like a dance, and the spirit of Moloch waltz’s freely around the land of liberty, eating his children at will. America’s law legalizes that which is not legal; right’s that, which is wrong; sacrifices the living to the dead, and calls it choice. Just as Moloch was behind Carthage, he roams behind the Statue of Liberty, who has sacrificed her children to him, and he is ready to feast on her walking corpse. The modern world, especially America, tangos with the Devil and thinks the stage is on the clouds of heaven, when really they dance on the flames of hell.

Physical vs. Spiritual Abortion
This is an excerpt from my last post:

"Those yet to be born must be cared for in different sense in comparison to a baby who must be       nurtured. A baby must literally be nurtured and raised from its birth (and that happens after baptism, or   the breaking of the blister). One who has simply been convicted, but has not been baptized, is like a baby  still in the womb. We must be careful to not harm that baby. These are delicate fetus's we are dealing with. Knowing that the new believers are to be born, we must be sure that we do not cause a miscarriage. Moreover, we must be sure that we do not abort any of these unborn babies, for the warning is stern for those who cause them to fall away from the Lord. He states this concerning them: 

But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. (Matthew 18:6, NIV)"

We tend to focus so much on the physicality of death itself, and oftentimes we forget the spiritual implications behind the violent occurrence. An abortion is not a clean and easy process. It is a traumatic experience for the women who go through it. In most cases, the physical manifestation of something, especially that of death, is simply an after-effect of a particular cause in the spiritual realm. What I mean is simply this: that when something big happens in the physical world, than something even greater happened in the spiritual world. With that thought in mind, I direct you to this recent article:

The article describes the discontent of certain "spiritual leaders" in the "church", over the abortion rate in New York. There are many physical abortions going on as we speak, and I pray against them right now in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. More importantly though, there are even more "spiritual deaths" occurring as we speak. What do I mean by this? I am speaking of those who have been on the cusp of believing, and those who have believed, yet have not been baptized. What holds them back from being born into the Kingdom of Heaven? Abortions or Miscarriages. Not merely physical, but spiritual abortions that are occurring daily. 41% of all births in New York Cities births result in abortions. And what does this Archbishop, Timothy Dolan say in response to this?

"Dolan said the practice is unlikely to end but that it was important 'to tell people what is happening." 

I pray for this man. I see NO faith in that statement. The practice is unlikely to end? I worship a God that makes the impossible, possible! I shoot BIG with God, and I pray that the heinous act of sacrificial offerings to the Devil will cease! And by the right hand of the Almighty God it will. Sooner than we think. Yet there is an aspect to this abortion rate that many will not see, because it is not happening in physically seen world, it is happening in dimensions that we cannot see. When things like this take place, it has a direct connection to the state of the Church. In a way, it is the revelation of what is happening in the spiritual world. 
Physically Aborted Babies
Many, too many, would be Christians, are being aborted while still in the womb. I speak spiritually as well as physically. Hitting first on the physical abortions in this post; I have heard it from some "denominations" that babies that are aborted go to Hell. I completely disagree with this. First off, I quote the Law, and the Lord's words to Israel concerning their children:

Moreover, your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, and your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in thither, and unto them will I give it, and they shall possess it. (Deuteronomy 1:39, KJV)

What an amazing picture of aborted babies today! We have said that these children should be a prey, have we not? Yet, what does the Lord say here? The children of Israel had no knowledge of good and evil, therefore they are not condemned under the Law. Is this not the very tree that Adam ate from? Is not the knowledge of good and evil, evil itself? Yet these children had not come to that age of accountability, which I believe is up to the discretion of the Father. Many will disagree with me on this point. But it is at this point that I stay. For what the Lord says to the older generation right after is quite revealing, in the symbolic sense:

But as for you, turn you, and take your journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red Sea. (Deuteronomy 1:40, KJV)

We, who have tasted the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and we who wish to become part of the Kingdom of Heaven, must first turn from sin (turn ye) and take up our cross (the journey), which will lead to the world's rejection of us (the wilderness), and finally we must be washed in the Blood of the Lamb, which is Baptism (The Red Sea) in order to enter Heaven (the Promised Land).

Do Aborted Babies Go to Heaven?
There have been many books written on Heaven, but a few of them have particularly effected my family and I. 6 Big, Big, Big Angels and Heaven is For Real, are two miraculously anointed books that I certainly recommend reading. In both books there is confirmation from these two young children, Victoria and Colton, who had near-death experiences and visions of Heaven, that aborted and miscarried babies go to Heaven. 

For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. (Romans 15:4, KJV)

These scriptures were written long ago for us now. We must look at them with spiritual eyes, through the lens of the Spirit. I could present many things that perhaps show the opposite side like:

For I was born a sinner—yes, from the moment my mother conceived me (Psalm 51:5, NLV)

Christ Himself, though sanctified the womb:

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. (Isaiah 7:14, NIV) 

I have hope that those children who never had the chance to glorify God in Christ, are glorifying him in Heaven right now, by growing in His sight. These children had a specific purpose to fulfill in God's eternal plan. But Satan has tried to destroy that plan by ridding these children the opportunity to fulfill their purposes. Yet God turns all things around for good. Even when a child is conceived in Sin, the Lord takes that child to His eternal abode. So those who support abortion when a child is conceived in rape or out of wed-lock or infidelity, I use the example of David and Bathsheba, against that thought:

Then his servants said to him, "What is this thing that you have done? You fasted and wept for the child while it was alive; but when the child died, you arose and ate food." He said, "While the child was still alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, 'Who knows whether the LORD will be gracious to me, that the child may live?' But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he will not return to me." (2 Samuel 12:21-23, NKJV)

If we believe that King David's son went to Hell, why would David say that he himself will go to him? No! He will go to his son in Heaven! Because that is where he went, Praise God! 

What a wonderful thing Jesus did for us, and what a wonderful thing He wished for us to become: children! Why children? First off, by saying little children, especially the unborn, go to Hell, do we not make our Lord out to be a liar? 
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Matthew 19:14, NIV)

The Kingdom of Heaven is reserved for those who are "like" little children. If we are to be like little children, that is an implicatory statement which supposes that little children have something that we older folk do not have. What is that? Innocence. They are guilty in Adam, but they have not made the choice themselves to eat of the tree, for they do not yet have the knowledge to do so...yet. But Christ is clear on this:

And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:3, KJV)

Aside from many other aspects of being a child, like obedience and lack of worry, the largest point is their lack of the knowledge of Good and Evil. They have not eaten of the tree, for they have never had the opportunity to do so even. 

So those children sacrificed to Moloch do not face the same end as the "god" they are being sacrificed to will face. This is the physical side of abortions, which has a less gloomy outlook in comparison to those who are spiritually aborted. Even so the Dance of Moloch continues throughout the land, and the unstoppable rhythm of death keeps moving, seemingly impossible to stop.

Never forget though, that through our Lord Jesus, all things are possible. Never forget that. 

More on that in the next post, God Willing!

Blessings in Christ Jesus!
