Yesterday the 9th of Av began, Tisha B’Av, a sad day in Jewish history, but surely evidence for the fact that God is in control of history on His planet and that He judges nations.
On the ninth of Av day 1445 BC, ten of the twelve spies sent by Moses to search the Promised Land came back with a negative report resulting in the Jews wandering 40 years in the wilderness.
On the 9th of Av 586 BC the first temple was destroyed by the Babylonians.
On the ninth of Av 70 AD the Second Temples was destroyedby the Romans.
On the ninth of Av 1290 ADthe Jews were expelled fromEngland.
On the Ninth of Av 1492ADwas the date designated for all Jews to leaveSpain.
On the ninth of Av1941AD, SS Commander Himmler formally received approval for the “Final Solution.“
If only the Jews, and our leaders for that matter, would read and obey the following Scripture:
“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:13-14
Whilst the date these events occurred (ninth of Av) demonstrates God is in control of history. It also demonstrates the spiritual warfare that is raging on this planet as Satan strives to destroy God’s nation.
Lawmakers in Honduras garnered national headlines last week when they voted to ratify a change to the national constitution that effectively bolsters the ban on abortion in the Latin American nation.
The lawmakers overwhelmingly voted in favor of the amendment on Jan. 21, with a second ratification vote last Thursday solidifying what supporters call a “Shield Against Abortion in Honduras.”
“The unborn shall be considered as born for all rights accorded within the limits established by law,” the amendment reads. Language was added to the amendment stating that “it is prohibited and illegal for the mother or a third party to practice any form of interruption of life on the unborn, whose life must be respected from conception.”
Jesus said He will judge sheep and goat nations on His return can I suggest that Honduras and Brazil where abortion is a crime will be among those sheep nations. Remember the Saints will have been raptured prior to Jesus return. Jesus will return with the saints to begin His Millennial reign on this earth.
“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Matthew 25:31-33
“Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”Matthew 25:34
“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire.”Matthew 25:41
