Thou has covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. For shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding? He that created the heavens, and stretched them out: he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein. Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb. I have made the earth, and created man upon it. The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. We are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb, I sanctified thee. Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of The Holy Ghost. He shall be filled with The Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works.
We are made by God and the works of His Hand. God is the potter and we are the clay, gives us breath and spirit, calls us by name in the womb, forms us in the womb, created man upon the earth and made mention of my name in the womb. We are God's workmanship and He formed us. God knew, sanctified and ordained us before conception. Jesus was conceived by The Holy Ghost. John was filled with The Holy Ghost in womb. Paul was separated by God from mother's womb.
I would like to examine the question of shedding innocent blood, or murder of innocent people. In the last twenty years there seems to be a great rise in the murder of innocent people or what seems like innocent people. Wondering why this has happened has set me to doing a little study. It seems that as the years go by unprovoked, or what looks like unprovoked, murders become more common.
As a child on a mountain in Tennessee, we heard of murder only once. It was a great shock to us. Nothing like this had ever happened in my lifetime before. It took us children a long time to feel safe to go and come as we had before. There were no more murders there that I heard about, so in time, we became trusting again and went about alone without fear.
I have read about so many murders in my town that I don't pay much attention to them anymore. I do find that I stay away from certain places and types of people. I wouldn't just go anywhere as I did as a child. I take my husband or someone else when I have to go to certain areas. We have a shopping center that I almost never go to alone because I consider it not to be safe even in the day time.
I started to notice a trend in our area; on the surface it seems more women are being attacked and/or murdered than in years past. I have often wondered why. I think we can find some answers in the Bible.
One thing we have learned in deliverance sessions; those people who get into the occult, drugs or sex have a very difficult time giving up their old activities. After much prayer and Bible study, it has become evident that since these are activities carried on in idol or Satan worship, the demons will really work on these people to get back in. It is far better and safer to leave idol and Satan worship out of you life. This means no sex before marriage, no desiring forbidden knowledge, no flirting with the occult, no use of illegal drugs, and no worship of anyone as Lord except Jesus Christ.
We have seen how rebellion, hate, envy and jealousy grow extremely rapidly. The Bible tells us to obey the instructions of God quickly and enthusiastically. Quickly forgive others, repent of rebellion and quickly correct any errors in your thinking.
Have you seen families or a person that seemed to never belong; never be able to make enough money to take care of themselves, let alone their families; families who seemed to always be despised in the neighborhood; those who work and make plenty of money but never seen to have enough; those who never seem to be able to come to Jesus; those who stay in their idolatry and witchcraft even when it is obvious they are gaining nothing but are being damned, etc.?
I have a new Bible which I have started to read from beginning to end, marking God's words in red. I came upon this verse, which I will have to admit, never registered with me before. Whosoever sheds men's blood, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God He made man (Genesis 9:6). Since God created man in His image we should respect that which God gave honor to and not deface God's image, by unjustly killing a person. There is a law for killing by those who plan and carry out murder. There is a curse on those magistrates who do not punish murders (Rom. 13:4).
See these scriptures on shedding innocent blood: Keep very far from a false matter and (be very careful) not to condemn to death the innocent and the righteous, for I will not justify and acquit the wicked (Ex. 23:7).
Lest innocent blood be shed in your land, which the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance, and so blood guilt be upon you (Deut. 19:10).
In the verses just before this one, God is setting up cities of refuge for those who accidently kill another. God did not want the avenger of blood to kill while he was hot with anger. (If the avenger killed one who had accidently killed, then the avenger would be guilty of shedding innocent blood.) The one who had accidently killed another could stay in the city of refuge until the elders of his city could determine if he was guilty of hating and planning to kill. If it was certain that he hated and planned to kill, then they would go into the city of refuge and bring him out and slay him.
Why do this? V.13, Your eyes shall not pity him, but you shall clear Israel of the guilt of innocent blood, that it may be well with you.
This is the provision for redeeming the land where one is found murdered and no one knows who did the murder. Deut. 21:1-9, If one is found slain in open land, then the city nearest to the body shall bring a heifer to a valley never sown, break it's neck, and there the men from the city would wash their hands and say whether they had seen the murder or done it.
V.8, Forgive, O Lord, Your people Israel, whom You have redeemed, and do not allow the shedding of innocent blood to be charged to Your people Israel. And the guilt of the blood shall be forgiven them. V.9, So shall you purge the guilt of innocent blood from among you, when you do what is right in the sight of the Lord.
Cursed is he who slays his neighbor secretly. All the people shall say, Amen (Deut. 27:24). Even if you should never get caught, you and your descendents will be under a curse and will be hunted by others and be killed. The Devil will never leave you and your descendents alone until you repent of your sins, accept Jesus as Saviour, break the curses on the family line, cast out the demons, and live according to the Bible thereafter. If you or you children sin in this manner later, the curse will return.
I Sam. 19:5, Saul had ordered David slain but Jonathan attempted to persuade Saul to stop before he shed innocent blood. Why was Jonathan concerned? We will see that the curse for shedding innocent blood would effect Jonathan and Saul's descendents, especially the males.
Ps. 94:21, There are those who band together to condemn the innocent to death, but the Lord will turn their own iniquity back upon them.
Six things the Lord hates: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that manufactures wicked thoughts and plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who breaths out lies (even under oath), and he who sows discord among the brethren (Pro. 6:17-19).
Their feet run to evil, and they make hast to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts are of iniquity; desolation and destruction are in their paths and highways. The way of peace they know not, and there is no justice or right in their goings; they have made them crooked paths; whoever goes in them knows not peace (Isa. 59:7-8).
Ezekiel 13 tells us about people who are occult taking bribes to keep alive those who should die, and to kill those who should live. God says in verse 23 that He will deliver His people out of their hand. In Chapter 14, God explains what He will do to those who worship idols and still come around asking for God's advice. He will be cut off from the midst of My people. God says that when the land sins (which is like our law allowing and financing abortion), He will stretch out His hand against it and cut off their bread, send famine, and cut off from it man and beast. And that even if Noah, Daniel and Job were in that land, they could save only themselves by their own uprightness. You and I will stand before God on our own record and will not be able to make claims of rightness because of what our families have done.
From this scripture we have learned: it is a very severe thing to take the life of any human being. It is most severe to take the life of the innocent, the unborn or the poor. To murder the unborn in a attempt to cover other sins only gets a person in more trouble that having the child.
This group of verses should serve to warn us in America of much horror, sadness and distress ahead. I try to imagine what terror a baby goes through when it is murdered. It can be nothing but murder. We can see how far we have fallen when we pick to murder those who are unable to do anything to defend themselves. See also Jer. 22:3,17; 26:15.
There will be judgement coming on our land for the guilt of the innocent blood that has been shed on our soil. These are some of the consequences we can expect: the above and those things we read about happening to the Old Testament people.
There must be sincere and deep repentance for the agreement to or the act of murder of innocents. If you give consent to abortion, you are also guilty. When Daniel asked God to forgive the sins of his nation, he used the terms us not them. Maybe we should do that too.
CAIN AND ABLE
The first account of innocent blood being shed in the Bible is in Genesis 4. The brothers Cain and Able have both offered sacrifice to God but only Able's is accepted. Cain becomes exceedingly angry and indignant. V.6, And the Lord said to Cain, Why are you angry? And why do you look sad and dejected? V.7, If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not well, sin crouches at your door; its desire is for you, and you must master it.
Cain lets anger, rage, hate, jealousy take hold of him. Instead of repenting of disobedience to God's instruction concerning sacrifices, he decides to destroy the object of his anger. He murders his brother, hides the body, and pretends he doesn't know anything about it.
God is not deceived by this act, neither is the Devil. For God looks into Cain's heart and sees the evil there. Cain could have confessed his sin but he did not; instead he lies. V.11 contains his sentence. And now you are cursed by reason of the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive you brother's (shed) blood from your hand. V.12, When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield to you its strength; you shall be a vagabond on the earth (in perpetual exile, a degraded outcast). Even at this point Cain could have repented and been forgiven, but he would not. In fact, he was telling God that God would have to accept him because of his fine gift. There is nothing we can offer God fine enough to cause Him to accept us. It is only by accepting Jesus Christ as Saviour and afterward living by God's directions that we can be acceptable to God. Cain began to tell God about the harshness of his sentence. In the light of his murder of his brother, this attitude shows his opposition to God's laws. He should have considered his sentence light compared to the sentence he deserved.
Moreover, Manasseh shed very much innocent blood, filling Jerusalem from one end to the other--besides his sin in making Judah sin, by doing evil in the sight of the Lord (II Kings 21:16). II Chron. 33:1-10, He burned his children as an offering to his god in the valley of Ben-hinnom.
Manasseh, evil son of good Hezekiah, not only worshiped other gods but he put their images in God's Temple. Children were gifts from God given by Him to parents who then turned and killed them, and sacrificed them to demons. This was a terrible affront to God, a great rebellion, and a terrible sin which brings curses for many generations, possible forever, on a family line. It takes sincere repentance for these sins of self and/or ancestors.
The Lord sent against Jehoiakim bands of Chaldeans, of Syrians, of Moabites and of Ammonites. And He sent them to Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the Lord which He spoke by His prophets. Surely this came upon Judah at the commandant of the Lord, to remove them out of His sight because of the sins of Manasseh according to all the sins he had done, And also for the innocent blood that he shed. For he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, and the Lord would not pardon (II Kings 24:2-4).
Jehoiakim was a descendent of Manasseh; the sins of his father he did plus he received the punishment and curses of his father. Good King Hezekiah prayed to not die, God heard him, and he proceeded to give Israel the worst king it had had so far. (Read of ten tragic results from God giving Hezekiah what he wanted so badly, II Kings 20:18; 21:1, 3-4, 6, 9, 14, 16, 20.) It was good that Hezekiah prayed earnestly but at the end of giving his desire list to God, he should have submitted himself to God's plan.
Josiah, son of Manasseh, did right in the sight of the Lord and God stayed His wrath until Josiah died. But Manasseh's grandson, Jehoiakim, followed after Manasseh and great was the destruction on Judah.
There is a good possibility we would never have heard of Nebuchadnezzar, if it had not been for the Kings of Judah going after other gods and shedding innocent blood. God appointed him to be king, and to take into captivity Judah and the rest of the known world.
AHAB AND JEZEBEL
I Kings 21-22 and II Kings 10, You will see an example of the results of shedding innocent blood on Ahab's household. Ahab wanted to have the vineyard of Naboth. Naboth refused to sell. Ahab came into his house, jumped into bed, whined around and pouted until he manipulated Jezebel to solve his problem. She had Naboth framed and killed. God issued the results of that curse. V.19, where the dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall they also lick your blood (To Ahab). V.21, I will bring evil on you and utterly sweep away and cut off from Ahab every male, bond and free (To Ahab's sons). V.23, the dogs will eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel (To Jezebel). These things happened just as God said.
Jer.2:34, This is a good chapter to read completely. God, through the prophets, is telling the history of sin to these people. He reminds them that He brought them out of Egypt and set them free. They have forgotten His care and provisions in the wilderness, and being brought into a land of plenty. Not even the priests ask for the Lord. The rulers transgressed against God, and the prophets prophesied by the authority of and in the name of Baal. Then God tells them what they are like and what will come upon them. He likens them to restless females in heat looking for a male. In verses 35-37 He explains how vain and hopeless their worship of idols is, and what destruction they have brought upon themselves.
In their idol worship they burn their babies and sacrifice their children; they also kill the innocent poor. V.34 tells them they have done these things because of their lust for idolatry.
TAKING A BRIBE
Ps. 10:8, In this chapter we get a good picture of the wicked person who plots and plans murder of innocents. He is greedy, full of pride, persecutes the poor, spurns, renounces and despises the Lord, refuses to heed God's instructions and warnings, thinks he will never be punished, his ways are grievous, he believes he will never have adversity or want, his mouth is full of cursing, deceit, oppression and fraud, trouble and sin are under his tongue, and he ambushes and slays the poor and innocent.
Ps. 15:5 tells us that those who will take a bribe to slay the innocent will not dwell in the tabernacle and in God's Holy Hill.
Cursed is he who takes a bribe to slay an innocent person, all the people shall say, Amen (Deut. 27:25). This will include all parties participating in abortion of unborn children: the father, mother, doctor, nurses and others who agree to the abortion. It includes those who are bribed to lie or kill, and judges who accept bribes to cancel sentences or give light sentences to those who have committed murder or have lied to protect the guilty.
Matt. 27:4, When Judas saw that Jesus was condemned to be killed; his remorse was little more than a selfish dread of the consequences of betraying innocent blood. It looks like Judas didn't have the courage to face his friends after betraying Jesus. I'm sure he knew what he had done.
Matt. 27:24, Even Pilot wanted everyone to know he was not responsible for the innocent blood of Jesus. V.25, Then answered all the people, and said His blood be on us, and on our children. Once when we were working in deliverance with a person of Hebrew blood inheritance, we were impressed to have them repent for this curse and break it. They then began to shake and tremble violently. When they were free of these spirits, the shaking stopped.
And served their idols, which were a snare to them. Yes,, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons (Ps. 106:36-42). And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood. Thus were they defiled by their own works, and played the harlot and practiced idolatry with their own deeds of idolatrous rites. Therefore the wrath of the Lord was kindled against His people, insomuch that He abhorred and rejected His own heritage (II Kings 16:3.). And He gave them into the hand of the heathen nations, and they that hated them ruled over them. Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under the hand of their foes (Deut. 32:17).
Because the people have forsaken Me, and have estranged and profaned this place (Jerusalem), by burning incense in it to other gods that neither they nor their fathers nor the kings of Judah have known; and because they have filled this place with the blood of innocents, and have built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire for burnt offerings to Baal, which I commanded not, nor spoke it, nor did it come into My mind or heart; Therefore, behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when this place shall no more be called Topheth, or the Valley of Ben-hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter. I will cause their people to fall by the sword of their enemies, and by the hand of those who seek their life; and their dead bodies will I give to be food for the birds of the air and for the beasts of the earth. I will make this city to be an astonishment and a horror and a hissing; I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and their daughters, and neighbors because of the distress of their life (Jer. 19:4-9).
It is very clear that those participating in sexual sins (which lead to pregnancy) and then a decision is made to have an abortion are committing murder. The murder of an innocent child then opens the parents to demon attacks of being murdered or having violence committed against them.
A couple that does not want a child should use birth control methods that prevent pregnancy. This is better than having an abortion of an unwanted child. Single parents should not deliberately have children outside of marriage. They are cursed and their descendents are cursed to the tenth generation.
After having an abortion, the woman is subject to having miscarriages or not being able to get pregnant again. She may have painful and prolonged bleeding, and pain during her menstrual cycles. She is subjected to many cruel emotions such as paranoia and insecurity.
Rape can lead to pregnancy. Do you have a right before God to kill the child because you were raped? Soul ties should be broken with any sexual partners outside of marriage whether by rape or by sexual consent.
The church is drastically affected by the bastard which is a child conceived out of wedlock. The bastards have great difficulty in going to church and participating in the church services. Those who have sexual demons may act religious in church to cover their guilt about their sexual sins.
Dear Father in Heaven, there are curses that fall on individuals, families, races and nations for the sin of shedding innocent blood. This is a curse that travels down the family line. I ask for forgiveness for myself and those before me who have sinned against you and others by shedding innocent blood.
We have greatly erred in shedding innocent blood in the United States. Lord forgive us of this terrible sin, redeem us from quilt and cleanse the land.
I repent of having become involved in acts that show worship and obedience to the Devil and his demons. I repent of occult acts: worship, drugs, sex, thievery, murder, etc. I break soul ties with others that I practiced these acts with.
You have given us power over the power of the Devil. I break the curse of shedding innocent blood off my family and my descendents in the name of Jesus Christ. I break curses of idol worship, Satanism and illicit sex in Jesus name.
You have said that if I call on the name of the Lord I can be delivered. I call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to set me free. I thank you Jesus for what you have done for me. I commit my life to you in a greater way than I have before. Please instruct me, help me to correct my life and bring it into subjection to You. I pray this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, God's son. Amen.
