The LORD sent Babylonian, Aramean, Moabite and Ammonite raiders against him. He sent them to destroy Judah, in accordance with the word of the LORD proclaimed by his servants the prophets.
Surely these things happened to Judah according to the LORD’s command, in order to remove them from his presence because of the sins of Manasseh and all he had done, including the shedding of innocent blood. For he had filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, and the LORD was not willing to forgive.
~ As we approach the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, I am reminded of II Kings 24:2-4. II Kings 21:6 tells us King Manasseh went so far as to sacrifice his own son to a false idol, which is equivalent to the impetus for abortion. At some point there is no going back. Genesis 4:10 says the blood of just one innocent person cried out to God from the ground. How much louder does the blood of 55 million cry out to God for justice?
