As we continue to pray for the Supreme Court and the convicting power of the Holy Spirit to fall upon our nation, we must know the truth behind the cruel and barbaric practice of abortion (view this video link for reference) and the sin and greed that drives it. It’s critical that all Americans understand that abortion is much more than a political issue—it’s a moral – Biblical issue that carries severe consequences.
“But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion because it is a war against the child – a direct killing of the innocent child – murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? — Mother Teresa
Following is an excerpt from our book “God’s Answer for America,” which helps us understand why abortion is such a serious offense in the eyes of God and why this issue, along with others, could bring about great judgment and destruction upon America — a Day of Reckoning.
There was a time when America valued life and the unborn. Obviously, this changed in 1973 when it became legal in America to kill innocent children in the womb and called it “choice.” Over forty years later, the barbaric practice of abortion has resulted in the slaughter of over fifty‐five million innocent and defenseless babies! While abortion is a highly politicized issue, from God’s perspective, abortion is a very serious moral and injustice issue— its murder. This is not about a woman’s right to choose; this is about taking life and the shedding of innocent blood (more about why this is so serious in a moment)!
Women Have “Rights”
Many say abortion is about women’s rights, and the fact is women do have rights! They have a right to abstain from sex outside of marriage. They have a right to take contraceptives. They have a right to put their child up for adoption. But no woman and no doctor should have the right to take the life of an innocent and defenseless child! Abortion is killing our own flesh and blood. Scientifically (DNA), biologically (blood and heartbeat), and biblically (see Jeremiah 1:5; Leviticus 17:11), it is undeniable—abortion ends life. How can we as a people and nation justify the right to kill our own children?
The Horror of Abortion
The recent videos of the Planned Parenthood scandal trafficking baby body parts have given America a glimpse into the horrors of abortion. Brace yourself. During an abortion, the babies are usually killed by being ripped from the womb limb by limb. Unbelievably, some are even partially born and then decapitated or left to die. Abortion is happening in your city and thousands of times nationwide, daily! It must stop! We are greatly deceived if we think God simply ignores all this and just turns His head the other way.
A Special Biblical Issue and Prophetic Perspective
Yes, abortion is much more than a political issue—it’s a Biblical issue that carries severe consequences. It is critical America understand why this is so very serious and why this issue alone will bring devastating judgment upon our nation if not repented of and stopped—quickly.
The Biblical View: God Hears the Babies’ Blood Crying Out!
Did you know blood has a cry that God can hear? After Cain killed Able, God said, “The voice of your brother’s blood cries unto Me from the ground” (Gen. 4:10, emphasis added). Now imagine this—God hears the blood of over fifty‐five million babies crying out and thousands more every day! This is why God said in the “America, America!” prophecy, “For the cries of the unborn are calling out to Me.”
The Shedding of Innocent Blood Pollutes the Land!
The “shedding of innocent blood” results in what is known as “bloodguilt” that must be accounted for (Deut. 19:10, amp). The shedding of innocent blood also defiles and pollutes the land (Num. 35:33).
“They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters. By sacrificing them to the idols of Canaan, they polluted the land with murder. They defiled themselves by their evil deeds, and their love of idols was adultery in the Lord’s sight.” —Psalm 106:38–39, (NLT)
Psalm 106 describes people sacrificing their children to idols. Abortion is really like a child being sacrificed to the gods of choice, self, and convenience. In biblical times “child sacrifice” was often to the god Molech for the promise of financial blessing and gain. Greed and the daily murder of thousands of babies in the womb have likewise brought great financial gain to those involved (such as Planned Parenthood), with industry estimates of over a billion dollars annually. But abortion in America is also bringing something else—a day of reckoning!
A Day of Reckoning!
The word reckoning means a settlement of accounts, retribution for one’s actions, an appraisal or judgment, or an accounting as for things done. And God’s Word clearly says there must be an “accounting” for the shedding of innocent blood.
“Surely, for your lifeblood, I will demand a reckoning…Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man.” — Genesis 9:5–6
God takes this very seriously!
America’s Greatest Debt
Right now, America’s greatest debt is not an economic or financial accounting; America’s greatest debt is the accounting for the flood of innocent bloodshed— over fifty‐five million human lives aborted! God requires an accounting, a day of reckoning (avenging), for the murder of every innocent unborn child. This is why God said in the America! America! Prophecy:
“Choose life and not death! For the cries of the unborn are calling out to Me.
The blood you have shed is knee-deep.
Turn, turn, or you will see blood run in your streets.
Turn Roe vs. Wade, or for all these lives, you will surely pay.
For as you have sown much death, so shall you reap.
Judgment is waiting, judgment is waiting, While you keep on debating.”
—“America, America!” prophecy, 2007, emphasis added
(You can read the full prophecy here)
Over forty years and fifty‐five million aborted babies have symbolically brought a “flood of blood” knee-deep, polluting our land! In His incredible mercy and patience, God is warning America what is to come if this is not repented of and stopped. In chapter 11, “What’s Coming Next, If . . . ?” of the recent book God’s Answer for America, we will reveal just how severe this “day of reckoning” will be if America continues on her current path of great sin and destruction. God does not want to bring great judgment, but His justice can only be delayed so long. Regarding this, Thomas Jefferson once said:
“Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever.”
An American Leader Who Understood God’s Justice
President Abraham Lincoln knew the Bible and understood the effect of the nation’s sins. He believed the brutal Civil War was the judgment of God for over 200 years of bloodshed because of the injustice of slavery in America. He proclaimed this in his Second Inaugural Address, March 4, 1865, (emphasis added):
If God wills that
[the Civil War] continue…until every drop of blood drawn with the lash, shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said: “the judgments of the Lord, are true and righteous altogether.”Think about this: it’s estimated that 750,000 died in the civil war; what do you think will happen as a result of the slaughter of over fifty‐five million innocent babies? Let the sobriety and severity of that statement sink in.
The sobering reality is America’s greatest debt is a flood of blood that must be accounted for. Great judgment is standing at America’s door. Only by America turning to God in genuine repentance and ending abortions can she hope to be set free from the “flood of blood” and its deadly consequences—a day of reckoning!
What We Can Do Now!
The only hope to possibly avert great judgment upon America is a baptism of repentance from coast to coast and a bombardment of what we call in our book “Nation-Changing Prayer” with the pulpits of America humbly uniting to lead the way! For a critical truth is: Changing the course of our nation does not begin in Washington D.C., but true lasting change begins with the pulpits of America. More details of why and how can be found in God’s Answer For America book and website (GodsAnswerForAmerica.org).
“God’s Answer for America” is an urgent, timely, prophetic message and strategic plan that reveals how to dramatically transform our nation, beginning with our churches. While displaying the gravity of America’s spiritual condition and situation, Darrel and Cindy offer tremendous vision and hope for the great change that will come if we heed God’s solution and prophetic instructions.
