But, this is not our ‘first rodeo’
For the Christian pilgrims who arrived in the winter of 1620, those horrific weeks and months of sickness and death were, for them, their darkest hour. The survivors of that perilous venture celebrated their first harvest with a feast of thanksgiving.
The August 1776 defeat of the American revolutionary army on Long Island was one of darkest hours of the war. That crushing defeat was succeeded by others. But on October 19, 1781, the British surrendered upon their defeat at the Battle of Yorktown.
The first battle of the American Civil War a dark hour for our beloved America. The Battle of Gettysburg, approximately 75 miles to the north of the nation’s capital, was the grisly scene of the battle that claimed more American lives than any other. 51,000 American men died in the darkest hour of the Civil War.
American Battlefield Trust counts 620,000 war dead, a sum not equaled by the combined toll of other American conflicts until the War in Vietnam. Binghamton University historian J. David Hacker estimates the numbered Civil War deaths spans a wide margin: 650,000 to 850,000, with 750,000 as the central figure. Hacker’s estimates greatly exceeds all American war dead from the American Revolution through the Middle East wars fought in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lybia, and Syria.
Our Darkest Hour
On January 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade opinion legalized abortion, the legally sanctioned murder of helpless Americans still in the wombs of their mothers. The court conflated a right to privacy with a ‘right’ of a woman to snuff out the life of an unwanted child in her womb. The Supreme Court, contrary to the Constitution that does not concede legislative authority to the judicial branch of government.
From that 1973 lawsuit through the end of 2020, there have been an estimated 619,820 abortions in the United States of America, approximately ten times the accepted sum of all American war dead.
“Moreover, you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘Any Israelite or any stranger residing in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech (the god of the Ammonites) [as a human sacrifice] shall most certainly be put to death; the people of the land shall stone him with stones. I will also set My face against that man [opposing him, withdrawing My protection from him] and will cut him off from his people [excluding him from the atonement made for them], because he has given some of his children to Molech, so as to defile My sanctuary and profane My holy name. If the people of the land should ever tolerate that man when he gives any of his children [as a burnt offering] to Molech, and fail to put him to death [as My law requires], then I shall set My face against that man and against his [extended] family, and I will cut off from their people both him and all who follow him in [a]playing the prostitute (commit apostasy) with Molech. — Leviticus 20:2-5 AMP
<<The 1973 case forced states to legalize abortion on demand – making the U.S. one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Though subsequent rulings allowed states to restrict abortions after viability, they are not required to, and some states, including Colorado and New Mexico, still allow abortions for any reason up to birth.>> Most Americans Don’t Support Roe v. Wade, A Majority Actually Oppose Abortion
On September 23, 2020, President Trump signed an executive order protecting babies who survive abortion. Within days of his inauguration to the presidency, Joe Biden reversed the pro-life executive order of former President Donald Trump.
Plainly and unmistakably, legalized child sacrifice in the guise of ‘women’s health’ has earned God’s curse on our country. This is our darkest hour.
