“And [they] shed innocent blood,

even the blood of their sons and of their daughters,

whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan:

and the land was polluted with blood…

That thou hast slain My children…

[to] make his son or his daughter

to pass through the fire to Molech.”

Psalm 106:38 & Ezekiel 16:21 & 2nd Kings 23:10

“Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils”

Psalm 106:37

.

The Bible reveals that the very chosen people of God were actually sacrificing their own children to the gods of the surrounding heathen nations, specifically, Molech, a god of the Ammonites!

.

How could they do such a thing, in the face of a God who warned them against such abominable practices!?

.

Listen…“And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.” Jeremiah 32:35  

.

God repeatedly warned Israel, in no uncertain terms, that they should not imitate the surrounding heathen nations, who ruthlessly sacrificed their children to their heathen idols.

“Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted”

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fetus_ellipse.jpg1st Corinthians 10:6  

.

Okay, so this was the grievous error of the Old Testament people of God.

.

But are we Christians any less guilty of sacrificing our own children to idols?

.

Yes, God’s people have learned the ways of this heathenistic world.

.

Oh no, we don’t burn our children before some lifeless statue, as they did.

.

And yet, many Christians ruthlessly murder the fruit of their own womb, all for the sake of convenience.

“And, ye fathers…bring them (your children) up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord”

Ephesians 6:4 

.

But today’s devotional explores a somewhat different form of child sacrifice, namely, the sacrifice of our children’s souls, as we go headlong after the selfish pleasures, and proud ambitious pursuits of this modern-day cornucopian super-society!

.

Yes, instead of raising our children in the simplicity of the Bible, we instead devote our time and energy to the many gods of this selfish, hedonistic world!

.

Television, Internet games, clubs, extravagant vehicles, homes, gardens, banqueting, vacation resorts, proud, ambitious careers, time-consuming hobbies, and other similar pursuits: these are just a few of the modern-day gods whom we serve, thereby sacrificing our children’s Bible-based upbringing.

.

And so, we plop our kids down in front of the television or Internet, and allow Satan to groom them as he sees fit, while we go after these gods of selfishness!

.

Yes, we expend our time and energy in pursuit of today’s gods, thinking that an hour or two in church each week will somehow be sufficient in their training in godliness.

“And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed”

Genesis 19:17 

.

Well, the Good News is, that today is still the day of Salvation! And we must use our remaining time to plead for mercy and grace to cast away our idols, even as it is written…“In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth” Isaiah 2:20, 21

.

Here we have our marching orders…to “flee from the wrath to come”, as we cast away our idols, and devote the rest of our lives to our own Salvation, and of all those around us!

FINALLY WALKING UPWARD INTO THE HIGHWAYS OF ETERNITY

.

Day by day, you will find yourself walking, like the Disciples, spreading the precious Gospel seed wherever the Spirit leads.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ThomasCole-Pilgrim_Cross_End.jpg

.

Taking the lovely name of Jesus, with every word spoken. Walking through this sin-darkened world, witnessing to those who take notice that of a truth, Jesus is present within you. Even like faithful Enoch, walking through the highways and byways of life in this world, spreading the Gospel-seed of unpretentious love.

.

Day by day, you will become more and more closed in with God. Moment by moment, your heart will become intertwined with God’s heart, eventually two hearts beating as one heart.

.

And just like Enoch, when the appointed time of sojourning on earth is finally done…you will walk onward…and upward…and into the highways and byways of eternity. (“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” Genesis 5:24).
