Grace to Rise Above Molech

The spirit of Molech is at work among us even now.
Even as you read this... there are bones of babies being ground to unrecognizable bits,
perhaps even a few short miles from where you're sitting.
These are babies lying in garbage receptacles, waiting to be taken away as "medical waste." These infants won't have names until Jesus calls them out for the first time...
Aborted babies can't say, "Abba." But the Father hears their cries anyway. Do we?

There was more said in this paragraph, but when I read this, the tears came. Molech was a god in the Old Testament that nations would sacrifice children to. The nation of Israel was instructed specifically to not offer their children to Molech.

We pray that we will be able to adopt soon. We pray that we will be blessed with the opportunity to prevent one child from being torn from this world through the choice of abortion... by being sacrificed for the sake of self, offered to a modern-day Molech.

By God's grace, I hope that just reading this one paragraph quoted above, someone might consider reading the whole book. And maybe by reading the whole book, sees the importance of adoption in the life of Christians.

Hey Kelly, I'm reading a book called Our Covenant with Kids by Dr. Sisemore. I've found it very interesting that children, and also women for this matter, have been highly respected in the history of Christianity. It's encouraging to look at, considering the world view is in such contrast. I'll be praying that you may be able to adopt soon!

Hi Kelly

I stumbled on your blog accidently whilst researching the Lute name and what a blessing you were!!
I volunteer at a Christian Crisis Pregnancy Centre and I am going to take this into the team meeting on Monday to let the others read it. It will encourage us to keep going.
Abundant Covenant Blessings to yourself and your lovely family.
