“Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.”(Romans 1:31)
The phrase “without natural affection,” mentioned twice in the New Testament is one Greek word, astergeo. This was a characteristic of many pagans of the ancient world, but it is also prophesied to describe the humanistic pagans of the End-times.
Those of us who love life and revere the sanctity of life were profoundly shocked when the state of New York in the USA voted to expand abortion access right up to the birth of the baby!
To add insult to injury, they celebrated this shocking development by lighting the One World Trade Center in pink–unbelievable–as if begging for more judgment upon New York City!
This is surely the End Times, when unnatural affection was prophesied by the apostle Paul. Women used to celebrate motherhood and find joy in their children. But Paul also prophesied to his protege Timothy, “In the last days . . . people shall be . . . without natural affection.” (II Timothy 3:1–3) This “without natural affection” could be seen in the stony-faced Democratic women during the State of the Union address when Trump spoke against the culture of death and advocating cherishing the lives of the unborn.
In New York, legislators actually rejoiced in destroying their children with applause after the vote.
“N.Y. State has crossed a line of inhumanity that should drive us to our knees,” says Elizabeth Johnston, the “Activist Mommy.” “Forty-six years of the state-sanctioned killing of our most helpless and defenseless children should cause us to weep, to mourn, and to take action. What is to be thought of a society that kills her own children? What will the future be of such a heartless society that celebrates such barbaric inhumanity? We are in desperate need for God to move upon the hearts of young and old in our nation. If our hearts do not break over the killing of these little image-bearers of God in the womb, then how can we expect those growing up in this lost, confused and decadent culture to take our message seriously?”
Indeed, Psalm 11: 3 says,“If the foundations be destroyed what shall the righteous do?”
Elizabeth Johnston is calling for a National Day of Mourning and repentance February 23rd with the following suggestions to make an impact hopefully upon the nation:
– Wear black
– Don’t shop
– Close businesses
– Mourn and repent for the millions that have been aborted and for the heartlessness of our late-term abortion laws
This week intercessors wrote the following comments to me: “US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic ‘women in white’ supporters (who really should have worn red due to the bloodshed of the innocent) don’t even see that they are under the control of witchcraft. Women are coming under a Jezebel-type spirit of rage; they are united in hating Trump, who has promised to appoint pro-life justices. They even go against Trump’s championing of saving new innocent life. No matter, he will serve a second term, and the moral degeneration of the socialist ultra-liberal left will reach full term. God help them, they can’t see God’s Mercy for America through Trump.”
A Democrat churchwoman wrote to me, “They are sinners. We can’t expect them to act any other way.”
Following on that, another intercessor wrote these insightful words, “Christine, I have to tell you when I was lost I was pro-choice! I shook my fist at pro-life people! But when Jesus came and shined the Light in my heart, and showed me the sanctity of life, I was so ashamed to have been so deceived! So we pray as well for pro-choice people to be saved just like me!”
Furthermore, the aforementioned intercessor added this beautiful testimony, “Five years after I was saved, a lady and I were talking about abortion. She mentioned that she pickets against abortion on the street. I confessed to her that I had gone down the road shaking my fist at these pro-life people, cursing them as well! Suddenly she stopped and said, ‘Oh, I remember you! You shook your fist at me, and I PRAYED FOR YOU!” Wow! We just stared at each other! God brought the very person who prayed for me my way to tell me! Prayer works! The following year, I was standing on the street next to the same lady who had prayed for me, and my sign said, ‘Jesus heals and forgives!’ Now I was on the other side of the fence! How awesome is God to open the hearts of the lost and blind!”
Amen and Amen!
