“The Blood Cries Out”
by Art Sadlier   
April 21st, 2013

The first man born into this world was born with a fallen nature, inherited from his father Adam. Cain shed the blood of his brother Abel and God said to him, “...The voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.”

Because man was made in the image of God he was forbidden to shed the blood of his fellowman. “And surely your blood of your lives will I require ..... at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man. Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man” (Genesis 9:5-6).

The commandments of God stated, “Thou shalt not kill.” God has warned of judgment on all those who take another’s life. God’s payday does not come on Friday, but it will come.

In the book of Revelation we see a delay in God’s punishment for murder. During that awful coming time multitudes of tribulation saints will be slaughtered for their faith in Christ. “And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held” (Revelation 6:9). In verse 10 we hear them crying out for vengeance on those who have martyred them. “And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?” They cried out with a loud voice. They cried out how long. And they cried out avenge our blood. God‘s answer was rest yet for a little season.

The day will surely come when God will bring vengeance all those who have shed innocent blood. In this particular case we are told about that day of vengeance in Revelation 19:20, “...And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet ....These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”  In Revelation 21:8 we read, “But the ... murderers ... shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Paul tells us that in the last day’s men will be fierce, despisers of that which is good. We are living in that day; we are seeing murder in our day such as the world has never seen before in all of history.

A new report by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, shows that over a billion abortions have been committed since 1970. Can you begin to fathom the monstrosity of that crime? There are only 7 billion people in our world and one billion have been brutally murdered in their mother’s wombs. These are children that were conceived but were considered an inconvenience. Children designed by God in eternity past, children made in the image of God. God says, “all souls are mine.” Our world is facing an awful outpouring of the wrath of God and that wrath will be poured out in the soon coming tribulation period.

The world has averaged 40-50 million abortions per year since 1970. This works out to more than one baby murdered per each second of the year. People in high places, common people, leaders, politicians and judges have planned and plotted and adamantly carried out this monstrous slaughter of humanity.  The world has never in all of history seen anything even remotely like this atrocity.

Currently there is a trial ongoing in which an abortionist, Kermit Gosnell is accused of murdering babies who survived an abortion attempt.
“A former clinic worker who grew up in Mt. Lebanon testified on Thursday that he routinely saw babies born and then killed with scissors in an inner-city Philadelphia clinic that catered to minorities, the poor and women with late-term pregnancies,” reported AP. The worker estimated the number of babies he saw killed at about 100.

Kareema Cross, a “medical assistant” who worked at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society clinic for four-and-a-half years, testified in a Philadelphia court today, telling of the horrors of babies who survived abortions only to have their necks snipped with scissors.

“Did you ever see those babies move?” asked Prosecutor Joanne Pescatore. “Yes, once in the toilet,” said Cross. The baby “was like swimming,” she said, “Basically, trying to get out.”

The shocking thing is that the mainline media have refused to cover this story, there seems to be a desire to protect the abortion industry from bad publicity. The voice of the blood of one billion dead infants cries out to God to avenge their murders.

Another area where innocent blood is being shed is in the area of Martyrdom. It is estimated that 159,000 Christians are murdered each year for their faith in Christ.

None of the above bloodshed is noted by the world, but it is noted by God and He will avenge these innocent victims, whose blood is crying out to Him.
