Dream Word – DARKNESS
“..because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools,” NKJV
The dark billions and the baptism at Bellarmine
I am sat in Detroit Airport as I write this Night Whisper. Already I have been the recipient of free candy distributed by personnel dressed as thieves and one-eyed pirates. Cutesie little Japanese girls dressed as witches holding Daddy’s hand have just walked past me as maniacal laughter echoed over the intercom. It’s Halloween here in America and this week, depending on which statistics you read, anywhere from 2.5 to 6.5 billion dollars will be spent on all things, gruesome. I tell you this because tonight’s whisper is a Halloween humdinger. Be afraid, be very afraid.
I set the scene at Bellarmine Roman Catholic University, even the repository of the writings of the world renowned, spiritual giant, Thomas Merton. Here this Halloween week, late one night in the decked and darkened halls, a young mother, who for months had been hiding her pregnancy from others, went to the bathroom and whilst all alone, gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. The child was plopped directly from the watery womb, right into the watery U-bend of the lavatory, where it drowned. Hidden in a garbage bag, the dead child was eventually found by the police. The mother, as I write, is being charged with murder.
The most shocking thing about this harrowing Halloween story is however not so much the dreadful event, but the cries of “My God! How can such a terrible thing be happening in our country and at one of our prized universities!” Since the dark drowning, I have heard this cry on all media sources and I tell you that on this not so happy Halloween, it is this cry which is the most astonishingly shocking thing I have heard, in it’s bared faced stupidity and unforgiving ignorance.
Friends, we have sown to the wind and now we are reaping the whirlwind.
Ten percent of the nearly one million women getting an abortion in America in 2007, would have cited “an inability to successfully complete their chosen education” as a reason for killing the kid not yet born. It’s an Halloween haunting to consider that if this young mother, just six months previously or even less maybe, had gone to a licensed practitioner, citing her education and golfing career as a reason for the need for help with murder, then she could have had her baby ripped from her womb, soaked in salt, or vacuumed out in little pieces and all done free of charge. This acceptable and legalised murder would have been followed by all the care and counselling she could ever need of, delivered hard on heels of the dastardly deed, yes indeed, she could have even gotten on with her golfing, whilst the murderers themselves would have received their fee as usual and all the surrounding industry of death been able to further and statistically justify their existence whilst applying for even more government funding to continue the silent genocide. If she had only acted six months previously, then all would be have been well with the law. Now, you just think about that!
In 2007, America alone has over 40 million murdered babies since Roe V Wade! With such genocidal figures just whose family I wonder, has not been touched by tragedy such as this. I tell you that I pity this one solitary, sad and silly girl, who out of above 40 million other murderers and countless millions more in complicit genocide, stands as the only one at present counted guilty. At present I say, for judgement is still to come. Still, let’s not think too much for after all, it’s Halloween and the orange sugared candy corn abounds, and laughing witches invite me to smile.
In this “One Nation Under God”, with websites hosting billions of pornographic pages, with billions of dollars being spent on Halloween, billions being spent on treating sexually transmitted diseases, billions being spent on armaments and war, billions being spent on an entertainment and communications industry that glorifies supernatural darkness as sexy and all the accompanying violence, selfishness, pride, witchcraft, rebellion, atrocity and atrociousness in all its meanest forms as what we should all aspire to, then the real shocker which remains for me this Halloween, is the startling stupidity of that media cry, that shakes it head in wonder, and asks the reason, “Why?”
This Halloween, despite all the sugar coated laughter around the shocker of a murderer mum, are all your sins forgiven, are you prepared to flee the wrath to come?
Listen: “They sow the wind, And reap the whirlwind.” Hosea 8:7 NKJV
Pray: Lord, come carve the word accounting, into the temples of our thick old pumpkin head, that no more little babies would be murdered, left for dead. In Jesus name I pray, amen.
