“Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD: Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them; Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness. And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.” (Ezekiel 16:35-38)
I’m offering up this analysis in support of the proposition that one of the acute conditions of the earth as it prepares for the Revelation of Jesus Christ, is widespread abortion.
The language of the passage quoted above is — as history confirms for us — a promise to the debauched nation of Judah (southern two tribes) that they would face a great slaughter. However, it is also a description of the severity of things in the whole of the earth as the days of this race come to a close. The language “and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy“ is a clear reference to the plagues that fall under the sounding of the first two trumpets (Revelation 8:7-8), and the pouring out of the second and third vials (Revelation 16:3-4), the reason for which plague is stated: “For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.” (Revelation 16:6)
Expositors on the Ezekiel 16 passage — and specifically related to the language in verse 38 “shed blood” — intimate the practice of women sacrificing their children to idols. This is true, of course, because when a woman aborts the child in her womb, it is done as a sacrifice to the idol of her lust and her notion that she must have freedom to fornicate (as the “Fornicate for Freedom” button that was advertised in a photo that went viral recently). Because the context of the verse is referencing the adulterous conduct (both spiritual and physical) of the Jewish nation, it is particularly relevant to that relationship (Christ and His Bride — God and his betrothed) that the shedding of blood is occurring. The bloody practice of slaughtering the child in the womb is a particular way that a wife — or betrothed — makes herself a “woman that sheds blood”.
I hope this is helpful to any soul whose spirit burns over that malicious act that defines our generation — so that you might testify of it when you are given opportunity by the Holy Ghost.
