So this is what Jehovah says, ‘Here I am handing this city over to the Chaldeans and into the hand of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, and he will capture it. 29 And the Chaldeans fighting against this city will come in and set this city on fire and burn it down along with the houses on whose roofs the people offered sacrifices to Baal and poured out drink offerings to other gods to offend me.’ 30 “‘For the people of Israel and of Judah have done only what was bad in my eyes, from their youth on; the people of Israel keep offending me by the work of their hands,’ declares Jehovah. 31 ‘For this city, from the day that they built it down to this day, has been nothing but a cause of anger and wrath to me, so that it must be removed from before my face, 32 because of all the evil that the people of Israel and of Judah have done to offend me they, their kings, their princes, their priests, their prophets, and the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 33 They kept turning their backs to me, not their faces; although I tried to teach them again and again, none of them would listen to receive discipline. 34 And they put their disgusting idols in the house that bears my name, in order to defile it. 35 Furthermore, they built the high places of Baal in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, in order to make their sons and their daughters pass through the fire to Mo′lech, something that I had not commanded them and that had never come into my heart to do such a detestable thing, causing Judah to sin.’ Jeremiah 32: 28-35
This is what Jehovah said: “Go, and you must get an earthenware flask of a potter and some of the older men of the people and some of the older men of the priests. 2 And you must go out to the valley of the son of Hinnom, which is at the entrance of the Gate of the Potsherds. And there you must proclaim the words that I shall speak to you. 3 And you must say, ‘Hear the word of Jehovah, O YOU kings of Judah and YOU inhabitants of Jerusalem. This is what Jehovah of armies, the God of Israel, has said: “‘“Here I am bringing a calamity upon this place, of which when anyone hears, his ears will tingle; 4 for the reason that they have left me and have proceeded to make this place unrecognizable and to make sacrificial smoke in it to other gods whom they had not known, they and their forefathers and the kings of Judah; and they have filled this place with the blood of the innocent ones. 5 And they built the high places of the Baal in order to burn their sons in the fire as whole burnt offerings to the Baal, something that I had not commanded or spoken of, and that had not come up into my heart.”’ Jeremiah 19 : 1-5
‘For the sons of Judah have done what is bad in my eyes,’ is the utterance of Jehovah. ‘They have set their disgusting things in the house upon which my name has been called, in order to defile it. 31 And they have built the high places of Topheth, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, in order to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, a thing that I had not commanded and that had not come up into my heart.’ 32 “‘Therefore, look! days are coming,’ is the utterance of Jehovah, ‘when it will no more be said [to be] Topheth and the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of the killing; and they will have to bury in Topheth without there being enough place. 33 And the dead bodies of this people must become food for the flying creatures of the heavens and for the beasts of the earth, with nobody to make [them] tremble. 34 And I will cause to cease from the cities of Judah and from the streets of Jerusalem the voice of exultation and the voice of rejoicing, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride; for the land will become nothing but a devastated place.’” Jeremiah 7: 30-34
To those of you that think that Child Sacrifice is something of our Historical past that is written in stone and not something that any of us can do anything about, except perhaps take the good parts of it and celebrate those ( although for the life of me, I cannot see any good in sacrificing our children ) I invite all of you to tune in to CNN next Sunday at 10 AM and listen to Fareed Zakaria . India is a very religious country with millions of god’s. There are 45,000,000 single men looking for wives. India is steeped in false religious belief systems, the sacrifice of children is just one of them. The slaughtering of children for religious beliefs, goes back at least all the way to Nimrod, Nimrod came along after the flood, it is quite possible that child sacrifice was happening before the flood as well, certainly every other sort of vile thing was. In India still to this very day, child sacrifices are performed ritually and daily. The difference between Satan and Jehovah is that Satan hides some of his activities to trick people into going along with the program, where as Amos 3:7 says, ” For the lord Jehovah will not do a single thing unless he has revealed his confidential matter to his servants the prophets.” God always tells mankind what he is going to do before he does it so that they are not surprised. Women in India go to doctors to sacrifice their children. If the child is a girl, they kill it. This has lead to an imbalance of gender equality in India between available men and the shortage of females, so much so that the government claims that there are 45,000,000 marriage minded men, and no women available to marry. I am just wondering if this also does not have something to do with the astronomical rape problem in India, although nothing can excuse that behavior and it out to be dealt with in the most severe manner possible. I want you to watch this, so that you do Not think that my writing is off the wall, that I have lost my mind and am off the deep end.
Twelve years old was Ma·nas′seh when he began to reign, and for fifty-five years he reigned in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Hephzibah. 2 And he proceeded to do what was bad in Jehovah’s eyes, according to the detestable things of the nations that Jehovah had driven out from before the sons of Israel. 3 So he built again the high places that Hez·e·ki′ah his father had destroyed, and set up altars to Ba′al and made a sacred pole, just as Ahab the king of Israel had done; and he began to bow down to all the army of the heavens and to serve them. 4 And he built altars in the house of Jehovah, respecting which Jehovah had said: “In Jerusalem I shall put my name.” 5 And he went on to build altars to all the army of the heavens in two courtyards of the house of Jehovah. 6 And he made his own son pass through the fire, and he practiced magic and looked for omens and made spirit mediums and professional fore tellers of events. He did on a large scale what was bad in Jehovah’s eyes, to offend him. 7 Further, he put the carved image of the sacred pole that he had made in the house of which Jehovah had said to David and to Sol′o·mon his son: “In this house and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I shall put my name to time indefinite. 8 And I shall not again make the foot of Israel wander from the ground that I gave to their forefathers, provided only they are careful to do according to all that I have commanded them, even concerning all the law that my servant Moses commanded them.” 9 And they did not listen, but Ma·nas′seh kept seducing them to do what was bad more than the nations whom Jehovah had annihilated from before the sons of Israel. 10 And Jehovah kept speaking by means of his servants the prophets, saying: 11 “For the reason that Manasseh the king of Judah has done these detestable things, he has acted more wickedly than all that the Amorites did that were prior to him, and he proceeded to make even Judah sin with his dungy idols. 12 That is why this is what Jehovah the God of Israel has said, ‘Here I am bringing a calamity upon Jerusalem and Judah, of which if anyone hears both his ears will tingle. 13 And I shall certainly stretch upon Jerusalem the measuring line applied to Sa·mar′i·a+ and also the leveling instrument applied to the house of Ahab; and I shall simply wipe Jerusalem clean just as one wipes the handleless bowl clean, wiping it clean and turning it upside down. 14 And I shall indeed forsake the remnant of my inheritance and give them into the hand of their enemies, and they will simply become plunder and pillage to all their enemies, 15 for the reason that they did what was bad in my eyes and were continually offending me from the day that their forefathers came out from Egypt down to this day.’” 16 And there was also innocent blood that Ma·nas′seh shed in very great quantity, until he had filled Jerusalem from end to end, besides his sin with which he caused Judah to sin by doing what was bad in the eyes of Jehovah. Kings 21 : 1-16 Manasseh was even worse at committing atrocities then the nations.
Twenty years old was Ahaz when he began to reign, and for sixteen years he reigned in Jerusalem, and he did not do what was right in Jehovah’s eyes like David his forefather. 2 But he walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, and even molten statues he made of the Baals. 3 And he himself made sacrificial smoke in the valley of the son of Hinnom and proceeded to burn up his sons in the fire, according to the detestable things of the nations that Jehovah had driven out from before the sons of Israel. 4 And he regularly sacrificed and made sacrificial smoke on the high places and upon the hills and under every sort of luxuriant tree. 2 Chronicles 28: 1-4 It was common in the days of this time to sacrifice children under evergreen trees, this has always been a part of pagan rituals, sacrificing in the forest and groves of the evergreens, and thus the meaning of the evergreen trees of the Christmas celebrations. When ever you go to a party, make sure ahead of time that you know what the party is about, and who is going to be there, you cannot just bust the party, get in the middle of it, and then when the police show up, say that you didn’t know about it, and that it is just a misunderstanding that you were there. The police are on the way right now, get your story straight before they get here.
They did not annihilate the peoples, As Jehovah had said to them. 35 And they went mingling with the nations And took up learning their works. 36 And they kept serving their idols, And these came to be a snare to them. 37 And they would sacrifice their sons And their daughters to demons. 38 So they kept spilling innocent blood, The blood of their sons and their daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Ca′naan; And the land came to be polluted with bloodshed. 39 And they got to be unclean by their works And kept having immoral intercourse by their dealings. 40 And the anger of Jehovah began to blaze against his people, And he came to detest his inheritance. Psalms 106:34-40
For they have committed adultery and there is blood on their hands, and with their dungy idols they have committed adultery. And, besides that, their sons whom they had borne to me they made pass through [the fire] to them as food. 38 What is more, this is what they have done to me: They have defiled my sanctuary in that day, and my Sabbaths they have profaned. 39 And when they had slaughtered their sons to their dungy idols they even proceeded to come into my sanctuary on that day to profane it, and, look! that is what they have done in the midst of my house. Ezekiel 23: 37-39 When the Bible speaks of adultery and prostitution in this context, it is referring to spiritual adultery and prostitution. Yes it is true, they first barbecued their children, then they ate them.
