The Shedding Of Innocent Blood
“In the morning it happened that David wrote a letter to Joab and sent it by the hand of Uriah. And he wrote in the letter, saying, “Set Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retreat from him, that he may be struck down and die.” –2 Samuel 11:14-15
What may be secret sin on earth is open scandal in heaven . David learned that the hard way. He opened the door through lust that lead him to break five of the Ten Commandments which consequently brought judgment on his household that lasted for generations. He thought he got away with it . Killing Uriah in battle was a genius way for David to get what he wanted. His perfect plan and cover up seemed to work without a hitch. That is, until Nathan the prophet showed up and exposed David in his sin.
Jesus said, “For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.” Luke 8:17 What may be done behind the closed doors of abortion clinics or in secret rooms of sex trafficking houses or behind walls of nations perpetrating genocide is fully exposed to God… and heaven weeps. There is nothing that arouses the anger of the Lord more as when unrighteous orders, laws or policies are made and carried out to shed innocent blood. Mt 18:6; Prov 6:17; Rev 6:10
America is guilty. Guilty of the slaughter of the native American Indians. Guilty of the blood of African slaves. Guilty of the abortion of 57 million babies. Guilty of the innocent lives lost as the largest consumer of sex slaves and human trafficking in the world.
Meditate on Matthew 23:29-36
