No More Natural Affection

Lucifer’s drive to destroy humanity has, from the time he was found to be with iniquity, been his priority. His incessant drive to kill and destroy is his ceaseless endeavor. We are warned of his never-ending campaign to eradicate humankind in the following:

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5:8) 

We and others have many times looked at this all-consuming hatred Lucifer has for us. It seems that when God created us in His own image, it was more than the most gloriously arrayed angel could bear; he couldn’t stand that there was a creation more God-like than himself.

From this jealous rage, the mystery called “iniquity” flared within the mighty cherub, and the result, as we know, was the rebellion of one-third of the angels and their eviction from Heaven.

Apparently, the first hate-filled act Lucifer undertook was to plan a way to separate humans from their Creator, then destroy them.

Now known as Satan, Lucifer not only continues the assault against humanity begun in the Garden of Eden, but steps on the accelerator in his drive to destroy us during these times so near the moment when Christ will call believers to Himself in the Rapture.

Satan has increased his attempts at terminating humankind, having been at the center of the world’s two most destructive wars. Of course, we are told through Bible truth that wars come from the hearts and minds of fallen people, but at the nucleus of that war-making proclivity is the “father of lies”—the chief instigator of death and destruction, Lucifer.

Only God’s restraining hand has prevented the eradication of the human race. With the advent of atomic weaponry, Satan no doubt thought he had at his disposal the means of doing us in through inciting conflicts and, ultimately, total nuclear annihilation.

Satan knows Bible prophecy, but he, in his supreme arrogance and now total anti-God, reprobate mind, still believes he can defeat God’s foreknowledge. That foreknowledge has promised us, that through belief in His Son, Jesus, we will on one eternal day be in the Father’s house forever.

So the devil tries not only war-making but, more subtly, more deceptively, to take humankind down through, primarily, two other ways.

One of those ways is through the sin of homosexuality. He has worked feverishly to encourage the practice that guarantees, if carried to the full, that the human race will disappear. Homosexuality can never procreate, so the “lifestyle” fits Satan’s plans perfectly. This is really a “death-style, not a “lifestyle,” for the human race.

The second way, and even more egregious, perhaps, is through the evil of abortion. Through this wickedness, Satan has convinced those who should be the fiercest defenders of life within themselves to literally murder babies in their wombs.

This shedding of innocent blood–a thing God says He hates—fits perfectly, for example, within the designs of the human minions of Ephesians 6: 12 to achieve their goals for their so-called New World Order.

The plans for those who want to implement the Great Reset, those of the World Economic Forum and other one-world builders, include the intention to bring earth’s population down to five hundred million people or less. This was engraved on the recently removed Georgia Guidestones, you perhaps remember.

The following item encapsulates how Satan has convinced the child-bearing members of the human race to participate in his hellish scheme to seek and destroy all of humankind.

A Nebraska teenager was recently sentenced to 90 days in jail after she burned and buried the remains of her aborted baby, a case U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar called a “frightening violation of privacy and autonomy.”

Omar published a screenshot of a New York Times article about the case of 19-year-old Celeste Burgess, who was not charged “under Nebraska’s abortion law,” the article notes. At the time, Nebraska prohibited abortions after 20 weeks; that has now been moved up to 12 weeks.

Instead, she “pleaded guilty in May to removing or concealing human skeletal remains, a felony. Prosecutors agreed to drop two misdemeanor charges against her: concealing a death and false reporting,” the New York Times reports.

Burgess, 17 at the time, was “almost 30 weeks pregnant” in April 2022 when she used abortion pills obtained by her mother to terminate her pregnancy, according to the article. Her mother, Jessica, has pleaded guilty to violating Nebraska’s abortion restrictions along with providing false information to police and removing or concealing human skeletal remains, according to the Times.

Courthouse News reports that the mother and daughter tried to hide the remains, “at one point attempting to burn the remains with apple-flavored charcoal briquettes.” The baby was “buried, moved and reburied,” Courthouse News says.

Police obtained Facebook messages between Celeste Burgess and her mother where the daughter talked “about how she can’t wait to get that ‘thing’ out of her body,” according to the Associated Press.

Of all signals that this generation is bumping up against the very end of the age, it is the mounting evidence that many fall under Paul’s prophetic warning that gives proof:

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be… Without natural affection. (2 Timothy 3:1, 3a)

There can be no greater “natural affection” than that of a mother for her child. But millions have been deceived into believing that the baby within is a thing that is to be gotten rid of from within their bodies, as the above tragic story of the young woman’s experience attests. This burgeoning, without-natural-affection slap in the face of God evil, like homosexuality, is surely a profound sign that God who created us in His own image is about to say, “Enough,” and begin the divine process of bringing back heavenly order.

But there is still redemption for those who will but turn to God’s way–the only way—to forgiveness and acceptance into His eternal family. Here is how to be forgiven, even of the sins of homosexuality and abortion: 

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9–10)
