After President Trump’s State of the Union Address, if you had any doubts about the condition of our country, the events and happenings during his speech should have eliminated them. The battle lines are clearly drawn. They are literally black and white. The abyss couldn’t be deeper and wider than many imagined, desired to know or believe. There is no doubt the nation desperately needs a reformation in all areas of our national life that it may survive this self-destructive course it is on.
There seems to be no stopping the proliferation of abortion and now infanticide in America unless we who are pro-life push back harder than those who have an obsession with killing babies, whether inside or outside of the womb, only to gain political power.
Many of us have been in the trenches for many decades working to reverse the merciless killing in the mother’s womb because we know how wrong it is. The reproach against us before God is, without a doubt, a horrendous stench that will not go unpunished because God’s justice will not sleep forever.
If you plant weeds you are insane if you think you can reap bananas, apples or oranges. You did not plant bananas, apples or oranges. Yet, too many people live their lives that way. They live by all the wrong principles, compared to those established by God, and expect to reap the same outcome as if they were living life right-side up instead of upside down. Can you go to the bank and withdraw cash if you haven’t deposited money into your account?
The mass murder of unborn babies in America shows no signs of stopping any time soon. Since decriminalizing abortion in January 22, 1973 by the U.S. Supreme Court, close to 61 million unborn babies have been mercilessly slaughtered in their mother’s womb, the place where they should be the safest.
Shortly, we will be approaching the forty-sixth anniversary of the most horrendous decision our country has ever made; the decriminalization of abortion nationwide in the United States. At the time of this writing the number of abortions the counter reports are 60,957,074.9 in the U.S. since January 22, 1973. This is more than mind boggling it is a human tragedy of epic proportions, needless to say, we will not escape the consequences.
Every day brings challenges into our lives even if we are doing the same things over and over again. There are no two days that are identical and each one brings opportunities to improve or challenge everything in our lives. The choice is ours. The beautiful part of it all is that God has already provided what we need to overcome any and all obstacles that try our lives.
The birth of Jesus, and his mission here on earth, the most important event in history, was no accident or afterthought. All the important details are foretold throughout the Scriptures in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament.
There are few events of utmost importance for the human race and certainly the coming to earth of our Savior in human flesh, God’s holy Son, Jesus, who conquered sin and death and rose again to redeem us from eternal death and destruction, are the most important.
There are several special holidays on our calendar throughout the year, the holidays that are the most meaningful that we celebrate in the United States are Christmas and Easter, because they help us commemorate the two outstanding advents that are the most important to our existence. It is the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ to redeem us from sin and death and when he actually brought this to pass with his death, burial and resurrection.
