“And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile My sanctuary, and to profane My Holy Name. And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not: Then I will set My face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people. And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set My face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God. And ye shall keep My statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you.” Leviticus 20:1-8.
There were severe penalties attached to defiling God’s Sanctuary and profaning His Holy Name ( Lev. 20:3). Such things are sadly common among the heathen but here, God was speaking to the Children of Israel and “the strangers who sojourn in Israel”.
Let us also take note that the penalties are just as strong for those who “hide their eyes from the man” who desecrate God’s Temple. As a Child of God, we are to stand up against false doctrine and not hide our eyes. So, before getting offended with those who refuse to put lipstick on a false doctrine and watch as other’s give their seed to molech, remember the penalties for those who condone or see nothing wrong with such actions are just as strong as for the ones who are partaking in such actions.
Jesus prayed “Sanctify them through thy Truth: thy Word is Truth. As You have sent Me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also might be sanctified through the Truth.” John 17: 17-19. The Word of God alone is the Truth. It doesn’t “contain” truth, It IS Truth, whether we agree with it or not. We are sent to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified to the world, not to condone the heathen practices that have been brought in to the church by the world. Our sanctification comes through the work of the Holy Spirit through faith in Jesus Christ, not the schemes of men.
There is a lost and dying world on both sides of the church door. Jesus is knocking on that door. If you are not preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified for both Salvation AND sanctification, you are feeding your seed to molech. If you are watching as those around you are feeding their seed to molech, you have a choice to make and it is between you and God. I will be praying for you to be sanctified through the Truth of the Word of God and not a man made denomination. You will answer to God for HIS Word, not that diatribe of denominational beliefs. – Donna Clark Warren
