Last night I had a dream. I have talked here about my dreams before, but this one was a new experience. I have had bad dreams before. Some were even a little scary. This one I consider my first true “nightmare.” Scientists say that we don’t remember most of our dreams unless we wake up not too long after it occurs. I can’t say then that I have never had a nightmare before. I might have had one, but did not remember it. But this nightmare actually woke me up. The first in my 74 years.
In this dream I found an aborted late term baby. It was in a black plastic trash bag. I don’t remember where I found it, but I took it out of the bag and wrapped the bag around it like a blanket. Its chest and head appeared unharmed and I know that abortions usually damage the head, but not in my dream. The body below the chest was totally covered with blood and injuries. When I looked at its face I started to cry uncontrollably. This was also the only time I can ever remember crying in a dream. I was in so much anguish I knew I needed to show it to my family. In this dream my Mom and Dad were still alive and they and my sister were also extremely upset. At this point I woke up.
The anguish I felt in the dream stayed with me when I awoke. I felt like if I had awakened in the presence of one of those women who wear stupid caps and proudly proclaim their act of abortion or their desire to have one some day, that I would beat her to death with my cane. But I know that would violate God’s Law, too. And I can understand why a few have taken the law into their own hands and murdered abortion doctors or bombed their clinics. But they are violating God’s Law and that is wrong. But now I understand.
As I lay there thinking about how terrible it was and trying to make sense of it, I believe the Holy Spirit actually gave me some insight into the meaning and purpose of the dream. When God made his covenant with Abraham He promised certain blessings He would bestow upon the nation that Abraham would father. God built a hedge of protection around Israel, but, while that covenant would last forever, that hedge would be removed if Israel rebelled against Him. And that’s exactly what happened. Despite the warnings of the prophets, Israel drifted farther and farther from God. By the 8th century BC, they had purged God from their national life, mocked and persecuted the tiny faithful remnant and replaced God with idols of all sorts. They were even sacrificing their own children to the pagan god Baal. In 732 BC The Assyrians attacked and destroyed Samara (Israel’s capitol) and carried off many of the inhabitants.
They did not respond to this by turning back to God. When the time came to rebuild, they arrogantly vowed to rely on their own strength. This is recorded in Isaiah 9 : 9 &10. They were pronouncing judgement upon themselves. The Assyrians attacked Israel again and utterly destroyed the nation. Most of the Jews were carried away into slavery.
I and others believe that because this country was founded on Biblical principles, God has blessed this nation. We are not perfect and we have certainly not been chosen in the same way that God made the Jews his chosen people. But the mere fact of paying honor to God can bring His blessings. However, the second half of the 20th century witnessed a profound turning from God by our country. God has been purged from our schools and text books and the murder of our unborn children has been made a sacrament of left. The courts have excluded God and his Word from public places. The main stream media criticizes and derides anything Christian. Since Roe v. Wade we had murdered more unborn people than were killed in WW2. We don’t know how many children were sacrificed to Baal in ancient Israel, but it certainly was nowhere near 60 million.
Have our own leaders pronounced our future judgement? I know a lot of people will hate me for saying this, but I truly believe that God answered millions of prayers by giving us President Trump. If he wins the election with literally everyone in power above us attacking and lying about him, then I believe it will confirm God’s Will. What think YOU?
