Molech Planned Parenthood
Child Sacrifice and Baal – Moloch • Abortion and Secular Humanism
5 August 2015, Anno Domini

Planned Parenthood is in the news, but is it new information or practice?

Moloch, Molech, Molekh, or Molek, representing Hebrew מלך mlk, (translated directly into king) is either the name of a god and the name of a particular kind of sacrifice associated historically with that god in cultures throughout the Middle East, including but not limited to the Jewish, Egyptian, Caananite, Phoenician and related cultures in North Africa and the Levant.

Moloch went by many names including, but not limited to, Ba’al, Moloch, Apis Bull, Golden Calf, Chemosh, as well as many other names, and was widely worshipped in the Middle East and wherever Punic culture extended (including, but not limited to, the Ammonites, Edomites and the Moabites). Baal Moloch was conceived under the form of a calf or an ox or depicted as a man with the head of a bull.

Hadad, Baal or simply the King identified the god within his cult. The name Moloch is the name he was known by among his worshippers, but is a Hebrew translation. (MLK has been found on stele at the infant necropolis in Carthage.) The written form Μολώχ Moloch (in the Septuagint Greek translation of the Old Testament), or Molech (Hebrew), is the word Melech or king, transformed by interposing the vowels of bosheth or ‘shameful thing’.

The principal pillars of Baalism were child sacrifice, sexual immorality (both heterosexual and homosexual) and pantheism (reverence of creation over the Creator). Adults would gather around the altar of Baal. Infants would then be burned alive as a sacrificial offering to the deity. Amid horrific screams and the stench of charred human flesh, congregants – men and women alike – would engage in bisexual orgies. The ritual of convenience was intended to produce economic prosperity by prompting Baal to bring rain for the fertility of “mother earth.”

Worshipping Baal meant sacrificing human life, never your own, just the innocent newly born, so you might have prosperity here on earth.

Now that “medical professionals have perfected killing the unborn and partly born, there is a new way to prosperity and convenience.

Will you kill your baby so that you can have the payments for a new BMW instead of just driving the old Ford?

Can you please tell me the difference between Baalism and Secular Humanism? Secular Humanism is the Baalism of today.

Do you wonder what morals Barack Obama had in mind teaching his “miracle daughters”? He said, “I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.”

Baal had his babies roasted alive. Secular Humanism prefers to suck their brains out while they are alive or maybe just dismember them. All so young people are not punished with a baby.

When a woman gives up her child, now prior to birth not post birth, for the reasons of “economics” or “ability” to raise him, that child, once aborted, is in the end burnt or rather incinerated. The burnt offering to Baal-Moloch is still created and created under the exact same hopes as it has been done for centuries: the hope for a rich and easy life.

The rich and easy life is just that, easy life, but life itself is rather short. One cannot give praise for the day to come, when one can not be sure to live to see its sun rise. As such, we, as societies, continue this evil practice of sacrifice to Moloch to gain prosperity; albeit in a more sanitized version of abortion, to buy our way out of “costly” children, a gift given directly from God. In so doing we damn our souls and the souls of future generations who will grow up and be perverted by the societies thus made.

Two thousand years ago, Jesus said, But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:6)  Do you think sucking their brains out or dismembering them alive is offensive to these little ones?

Punished with a baby? There is a special place in hell, perhaps with a millstone.

In 1982, I took some Bible school courses, among which was “The General Epistles of John.”  This is one of my essays from that course.

And we have known and believed the love God has to us. God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:16). I like one of Berry’s translations for the word believed. Using it, the verse could read, “We have known and been entrusted with[i] the love God has (in – upon – into)[ii] us.” We’ve been entrusted with it and are not to receive it from God and bury it within ourselves, like the servant with one talent (Matthew, Chapter 25); but we are to sow it to its increase. It is required that a steward be found faithful (1 Corinthians 4:2). We are to sow forth His love so God will receive the glory and be able to again fill us to running over with His love to our edification, enabling us to love even more until we have come to the point where, moving in perfect koinonia with God, we move in the totality of His love at all time. To overcome the inertia in this area and get the flow started, we must will to act out the Word, in effect pushing the wheel to get it rolling. We must act in the same love with which we have been loved—agapē. Not self-satisfying. Not self-contained. It’s a matter of attitude. As we have received this gift, we are to minister it one to another (Matthew 10:8), “…as good stewards of the manifold grace of God” (1 Peter 4:10).

If we don’t let that love flow, it will stagnate. Any manna (Exodus 16:19) that was stored up against instructions rotted like a compost heap. The fermentation process is a catalytic one which generates heat. Left unchecked, the ultimate end is the complete rotting of the material involved, coupled often with spontaneous combustion—fire. We’ve seen that God is love. God and His Word are one (John 1:1). So, love is the Word. The Word is Jesus (John 1:14). Love is then, Jesus. The manna was a type of Jesus: of Father’s love to us (John, Chapter 6). The admonition not to store up manna, then was a type of the admonition not to “store up” the Word, the love of God, but to live it.

Satan knows the Word. He is in rebellion and tries to pervert it. He has it in him, yet does it not. It has stagnated and decayed within him and will generate enough heat within him to bring forth fire and destroy him (Ezekiel 28:18).

As we love one another, God’s love is perfected (made complete)[iii] in us and He dwells in us (1 John 4:12) and we in Him and we know (ginōskō—knowledge, with a relationship)[iv] Him. His love flows out through us. As with healing, we are the vehicle for God’s power and love to work through. As it flows through us, it perfects us in love and we benefit from the use God makes of us and from the ginōskō and communion we have with Him.

How do we love one another in order to have our love made complete? We “keep His word” (1 John 2:5). We respond the way the Word says to—or with the Word—in all situations, regardless of circumstances, consequences, or emotions. We don’t let pride keep us from acting out the Word. Emotions are sensual. Love is spiritual because God is love and “God is a Spirit” (John 4:24). We lay down that pride and do the Word. We lay down all aspects of self (John 15:13) and do the Word.

…for them also which shall believe on me …that they all may be one …one in us …even as we are one …that they may be perfected into one[v] (John 17:20-23). Compare this thought with 1 John 4:16 in the first paragraph.

“Perfection, the absence of sin, starts with perfection, the attitude of the heart that is willing to be corrected with the entire Word of God.”[vi] We are to love our neighbor as ourselves and we begin by loving ourselves (Matthew 19:19; 22:39). This sounds contradictory, but not with a biblical attitude. We love ourselves by insisting that we, ourselves, conform to the image of Jesus, letting it be known that we want correction from brothers and sisters when we are out of line with the Word. We can then insist that our brothers and sisters conform to the Word (1 John 2:10; Leviticus 19:17; 2 Timothy 4:2).

We all know that we are to forgive; but giving rebuke and correction from the Word is as important a part of love as forgiveness. Not sharing the Word with our brethren whenever and wherever we should is loving them less than we love ourselves. In 1 John 3:15, the word hates is miseō, which can also be interpreted “to love less.”[vii] Of one who loves less, it says he is a murderer and does not have eternal life abiding in him. We have to demand that they keep the Word, holding them up, ready to use the name of Jesus on their behalf to change adverse circumstances…we, ourselves, doing the Word. “Love never fails” (1 Corinthians 13:8). This is very interesting in the Greek. Translated this statement means “Love never fails.” The flesh fails. The things of the world fail. But love, being in God, is eternal.

As he is (love), so are we (love) in this world” (1 John 4:17). When we dwell in love—in the Word—we have God dwelling in us. We have the ability of God in us. We can, then, love like God does; knowing it’s His love expressed through us, we are secure in Him. We don’t have to look for the approval of men. God is not a respecter of persons or position (Acts 10:34). Nor are we to be. We move in his prefect love without any thought of what others might think of us. “Perfect love casts out fear” (1 John 4:18). Doing love will cause fear to leave.

Our expressed love, one for another, will witness to the world. It will show them who we are in Him. That we are different. That we are His disciplined ones (John 13:35). And I want to be known as belonging to Him. Sure, I want the world to know it; but most of all, I want Him to know it. I can’t really show it by shouting, praising, singing, or praying; through that’s part of it. I can show Him by doing His Word. We all can.
