Biting and Devouring


This Message was given by (me) Hazel Moon, at the Wednesday meeting to pray over our City. 
A shorter version was shared as a hand out.
 

Let Me Tell you What I Heard about - - - -
 
Early the other morning I had a terrible dream, otherwise I would not be bringing this lesson today.  In my dream I viewed a group of happy people at a barbecue.  On the skewer was something large being roasted and it appeared to be done as some were cutting off slices to eat.  They offered me a plate, and I asked what is it on the barbecue?  Without guilt they answered, “It is our BABY; go ahead because it is very tasty.” 

Startled, I woke up and wondered what that dream might mean. 

There appeared to be two meanings.  This is the first one:
Galatians 5: 14-25  For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  But if you BITE and DEVOUR one another, take heed that you be not consumed one of another.  Walk in the Spirit.  This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
This verse is not talking about actual biting and eating of one another, but it is referring to “BACK BITING” or gossip.  I looked up the meaning of Back Biting, and the dictionary said it is malicious and mean talk about someone when they are not present.  God is NOT pleased with bickering and strife.
2 Corinthians 12:20  ASV   For I fear, lest by any means, when I come, I should find you not such as I would, and should myself be found of you such as ye would not; lest by any means there should be found in you; strife, jealousy, wraths, factions, back-biting, whisperings, swellings, tumults;
 
Galatians 5 continued with: Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, impurity, licentiousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, strife, jealousy, wrath, selfishness, divisions, heresies, Envying, murders, drunkenness, raveling’s, and such like: of which I tell you beforehand, as I have also told you in time past, that they who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

As we pray over our city, we can name the works of the flesh as an intercessor, Stand in the Gap for our citizens and repent for these sins. 

Then we need to replace the sins by claiming over our city, the fruit of the Spirit.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, self-control: against such there is no law.  And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Considering that my dream had a double meaning let us go on - -

Moses was God’s spoke-person.  He was speaking what God told him to say:  If the people would keep the laws and commandments they would be blessed, but IF they refused and did not serve God they would be punished with plagues, no rain, seeds would not grow so there would not be any food and they would be lowered to the place of eating their own children.  (This is literal - -)

God said it this way in Leviticus 26:29 
And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.
The Children of Israel had sinned again, and God sent the King of Syria to punish them.

2 Kings 6:  King of Syria came against Israel. And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until a donkey's head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a kab of dove's dung for five pieces of silver.
And as the king of Israel was passing by upon the wall, there cried a woman unto him, saying, Help, my lord, O king.  And the king of Israel said unto her, “What ails you?” And she answered, “This woman said unto me, Give your son, that we may eat him today, and we will eat my son tomorrow.
So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give your son, that we may eat him: and she has hid her son.”
And it came to pass, when the king heard the words of the woman, that he tore his clothes; and he passed by upon the wall, and the people looked, and, behold, he had sackcloth beneath upon his flesh.  Then he said, God do so and more also to me, if the head of Elisha the son of Shaphat shall stand on him this day.
Isn’t that just like us at times?  We get ourselves into trouble and we blame God or His Prophets and Pastors.  This was not Elisha’s fault, and actually God had said this would happen if the people rejected Jehovah God and served false gods.

I am reminded that Jesus was angered about those who would hurt or damage a child - -  “Those who harm children, it would be better for them to have a mill stone around their neck and to be drowned.”
WOW, Jesus did not like any kind of child abuse.  Just saying.
God was angry with those who sacrificed their own children to false gods.
For they have committed adultery, and blood is on their hands… and even sacrificed their sons…" –Ezekiel 23:37
Warning: …that no man might make his son or his daughter pass through the fire to Molech. –2 Kings 23:10
Women today are still sacrificing their babies on the altar of abortion.  Their blood cries out.
Abortion is because of “selfishness, inconvenience and public acceptance.”  The man who tells his girl friend to “Get rid of it;” Is also guilty of this sin. 

Recently I read in Charisma News, about the witchdoctors in Uganda who are kidnapping children, killing them to mix their blood, organs and limbs with herbs to make potions, charms, amulets or talismans for their clients - - all for money.  There are over 900 suspected cases Child sacrifices in recent years.  The Uganda Government seemingly is unwilling to intervene. 

Lest we point fingers and say how terrible, we must look at what is happening to the killing of babies here in our USA.  And here in Butte County there are several Abortion Clinics available.   

A recent Inter-Net expose stated that Planned Parenthood is systematically positioning the baby before it is killed, so that they can harvest body parts for sale.   

CEO Cecile Richards apologized for the tone of her abortionist but did NOT express regret for selling baby body parts.   

Praise the Lord, there are groups offering an alternative approach to abortion such as “Caring for Women” right here in our city. 

Many women who have had an abortion are still living in torment over what they have done.  Pray for these women to surrender their guilt to God.  Jesus is the supreme forgiver.
