Human Sacrifice Was, and Is Practiced All Over the Whole World
God forbade humanity to “make their children pass through the fire,” (Deut. 18:10-14.)
This “fire” pertains to human sacrifice – for instance, sacrificing even one’s own children to fertility gods for ‘luck’ in marriage and finance. However, spiritual and emotional human sacrifice in the form of abuse such as slander, (which is emotional murder,) and pagan or Christian initiations or rites of passage, fall under the same criteria as physical sacrifice.
On the beautiful, tropic island of Hawaii, (as on all the island-regions,) shamans performed animal and human sacrifice through the ages, and for the same reasons as in all other cultures. Blood sacrifice is also ingrained in the sun, sky, earth, and ancestor-worshipping cultures of the Americas, (such as the Mayans, Mexicans, Aztecans, and the Incas and Moche of Peru,) who sacrifice virgins, tribal members, as well as their captive enemies at their notorious pyramidal temples. These temple-sacrifices were mostly performed en-masse. The Pawnee, the Iroquois, and the Mound Building Indians of America also ritually tortured and slay virgins, young men, and their abducted enemies for ‘The Great Spirit’ of heaven, (the sky or sun god,) for his brother the moon, and for his mother the earth.
Abortion Is Ritual Child Sacrifice to Satan
While in most countries of the world reliable contraceptives are readily available, at least two thirds of the world has already joined in the “human right” to most cruelly murder innocent, unborn babies through abortion. Only two years after communism was established in South Africa, (1994,) the new government followed suit, (1996.) The right of the unborn is supposedly only “a religious belief,” because “personhood of the fetus” is allegedly “not a secular fact.”
Although governments do not care about the “rights” of the voiceless and utterly innocent, God’s Word will remain forever unchanged concerning the morality of this terrible crime. However, many Evangelical preachers too, do not view abortion as a crime against humanity, because the New Testament does not mention abortion. Forgetting their dreadful abuse of the Old Testament to justify their money-making scheme, tithing, and other false doctrines; where abortion is concerned, they suddenly turn to the New Covenant to justify their disregard of the brutal murder of the voiceless. However, God's Moral Law guides from the Old Testament into the New Testament, where it is the only law Jesus commanded, (Jn. 13:34.) The ousted Old Testament Covenant (Heb.8:13) is now merely the ‘symbol’ and “example” of how God deals with creation, unbelievers, and believers in particular, (1 Cor. 10:6, 11.)
God forbade humanity to “make their children pass through the fire;” or to initiate their children (or themselves) through fire, blood, water and other rituals into the occult; thus sacrificing their children (or themselves) to Satan in exchange for so-called “blessing.” Because the devil always seeks the most innocent and therefore ‘spiritually clean’ as sacrifices to him, abortion in all its forms are child sacrifices to the devil, where it is believed the “god” consumes the souls of the victims. More than the physical body and blood are therefore sacrificed; the human and in this case, the unborn baby is sacrificed to Satan supposedly for “all eternity.” Wikipedia also reported that in “medieval Europe, [and this occurred globally and continues to this day,] an established part of the witches’ Sabbath (or witches’ gathering,) was, and still is, the sacrifice of babies to Satan, as well as [the vampirism or drinking of the blood,] and cannibalism [eating] of aborted fetuses and babies during riotous [sexual and blood] orgies.” Unborn babies and body parts of humans and animals are also used in potions of witchdoctors as ‘special, strong medicine.’
This is why God commanded in Lev. 18:21, “You shall not let any of [your children] pass through the fire to Molech, [the Canaanite god of child sacrifice,] and profane the Name of your God…” Lev. 20:3: " I will set my face against that [person who...] has given of his seed to Molech…” Genesis 9:6, "Whoever sheds man's blood, by man his blood shall be shed, [governments must execute the death sentence for murder,] for in the image of God He made man.”
“Abortion cannot be murder,” governments and others argue, because an embryo (before 11 weeks,) or a fetus (after 11 weeks) is not a human being yet. However, even unborn babies at a very early stage of growth do feel pain. “According to studies between 2003 and 2005, 20 to 35 percent of babies born at 23 weeks of growth survive, while 50 to 70 percent of babies born at 24 to 25 weeks, and more than 90 percent born at 26 to 27 weeks, survive,” [Wikipedia.]
Click on the link to this video that explains how brutally, piece by piece, fully formed, unborn babies are torn limb by limb from their mothers’ wombs. Then, say that contraceptives are ungodly and/or not part of your culture – while supporting your government’s remorseless legalizing of the most cruel practice of abortion!
Nevertheless, this immoral but legal sacrifice to Satan can now be performed by registered doctors who swore the Hyppocratic Oath to “do no harm.” In its Greek form, the oath requires “a new physician to swear, by a number of healing gods, to uphold specific ethical standards.” [Wikipedia.] Here is a portion of the solemn oath every registered physician swears, “I will use treatment to help the sick according to my ability and judgment, but never with a view to injury and wrong-doing. Neither will I administer a poison to anybody when asked to do so, nor will I suggest such a course. Similarly I will not give to a woman a pessary to cause abortion. But I will keep pure and holy both my life and my art...”
From conception, an unborn baby is a human being in the eyes and Word of Jesus, the only Creator God that exists. Lu. 1: 41,44 “When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb… ‘As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.’” Isa. 49:1, “…The Lord called me from the womb; from the body of my mother He named me.” Jer. 1:5, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you..." Ps. 139:13-16. “For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb.”
In Satanism and other religions, women get pregnant for the reason to sacrifice the unborn child to the devil (who also disguises him in the form of fertility and ancestor gods,) in exchange for his 'blessing;' and most of them never regret what they have done or are doing. People must understand that Satan can only curse but never bless anyone, even though his “good luck” may seem something like God’s blessing to those who live under his deceptive power, (1 Jn. 5:19.)
While I most strongly condemn abortion, my heart breaks for the women who now mourn what they did because they either thought they had no other choice, were forced into it by those who should have been there to help and support them, were raped, discarded by the fathers of their unborn babies, and left helpless... May God show each one of them that there is complete forgiveness and spiritual cleansing in Jesus' forgiveness and in His shed blood and broken body in their place, (1 Jn. 1:8-10.) May the Holy Spirit lead them to confess to God that they have sacrificed their children (mostly unwittingly) to Satan, so that they can experience complete freedom from personal guilt by Christ’s forgiveness.
Please do not believe that the souls of unborn babies or young children, who could not discern moral right from wrong, (innocent animals too,) can ever belong to Satan! Because every person on earth is a creation of God, “all the souls are His;” (Ezk. 18:4.) Although every person at an accountable age must choose to either accept or reject Jesus, all the innocents such as unborn babies and little children, who dies, forever belong to Jesus, (Mt. 19:13-15.) No one can ever take them from His hand. The devil is the thief and destroyer (Jn. 10:10) who has no right to keep what does not belong to him. Satan compels people to sacrifice humans and animals to him because he fiercely hates all innocence, and such idolatry and witchcraft give him a foothold in their lives to destroy them even further. However, for those who belong to Jesus, the devil is a defeated enemy, (Col. 2:11—15.) All those without Jesus are in the deceptive power of the devil, (1 Jn. 5:19,) but all he has to use against blood-cleansed believers, are lies and accusations, (Col. 1:13; Eph. 1:7.)
On the other hand, the governments, doctors, nurses, and other shamans that serve Satan unrepentantly, (and the fathers of aborted babies, who neglected to take care of the mothers,) are under the “righteous judgment of God [as] they are deserving of death, [and also all] those who approve of those who practice [such atrocities,]” (Rom. 1:31-32.)
European Human Sacrifice
Ancient and even modern European culture was, and still is seated in witchcraft, black magic, and animal and human sacrifice. Centuries before the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, extremely aggressive Germanic tribes migrated from Northern Germany, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. Slowly but systematically, they infiltrated Western Europe, where the ancient Illyrian tribes lived in places like the Balkans of Serbia, Yugoslavia and Albania. They then proceeded to plunder and enslave the inhabitants of Eastern Europe, the ancient Slavic peoples - known today as the inhabitants of Belarus, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, and the Ukraine. By about 200 BC, the Germanic tribes had infiltrated all the countries under Celtic and Illyrian control. (This so-called ‘unification of Old Europe’ was also the aim of Hitler’s Nazi regime prior to, and during World War 2, which the most destructive, utterly totalitarian, communist Soviet regime perfected unhindered from 1945 until this day.)
As the Romans and Celts, the Germanic tribes, (led by mighty, ‘god’ warrior kings,) were polytheist, thus worshipping many different gods. The Slavic tribes too, (as nearly all ancient people on earth,) worshipped the ‘supreme god,’ whom the Slavs knew as the sun god Svorog and his goddess ‘earth mother.’ They also worshipped their deceased ancestors. These tribes, (just as other pagan tribes worldwide,) practiced animal and human sacrifice, especially in the British Isles and in France, where the Celts reigned savagely over the Welsh, Scots, Irish, Cornish, and Brits. So too did the bloodthirsty Scandinavian Vikings or Norsemen, who infiltrated most of the countries on the European coast.
The polytheist religions of the all these European tribes, (Romans and Celts as well,) all demanded different kinds of sacrifices to appease their many gods - human sacrifice (or ritual murder) in particular. For example, these tribes ritually burnt, decapitated, and mutilated their own children and other victims as fertility and protection ‘blessings’ – and many still do. They ritually hanged animal and human sacrifices from trees for the Gaulic god of vegetation, named Hesus – and many still do. They drowned captives for the British ‘tribal protector’ Toutatis or ‘Teutates’ – as did the Roman Catholics, Lutherans, and Calvinists, who, during the Reformation, sacrificed thousands of Baptists to Satan by slaying them with the sword and drowning them because they chose to obey the Biblical commandment of Jesus, instead of submitting to the unbiblical church ritual of baby ‘baptism.’
Most horribly, in the ‘Sacred Groves of Britain,’ these European pagans ritually impaled their captives (and even their own people, as in the case of Ivan the Terrible - the bloodthirsty historic tyrant on whom the Dracula-myth was based,) to scare off their advancing enemies and to appease their gods of war. The sin of homosexuality or sodomy still personifies human sacrifice to Satan by ritual impalement – a most cruel and disturbing anti-god, anti-creational sacrifice, which the evil one still demands on an ongoing basis.
The same goes for child rape (or any rape for that matter,) child molestation, and any other kind of harm done to the innocent, whether human or animal. In Islam and most other pagan religions, child “marriages” or actually child rape, molestation, and porn are supposedly part of their ‘culture.’ Recently, a man, age 40, ‘married’ an 8 year old little girl and raped her to death on that same night. All such anti-God, anti-Moral-Law atrocities originates from the liar and murderer of humanity, and the destroyer of God’s “very good” creation. Whether the perpetrator realizes it or not, harming others most cruelly either for personal pleasure, dominance, vengeance, spite, or whatever self-elating purpose, is sacrifice to Satan. Tongue-murder is definitely one of the most common and easiest types of human sacrifice to Satan, which most people commit without even thinking of what they are actually doing.
As in all other cultures, superstitious European pagans also blamed national, tribal, and personal need and crises on the reigning monarch, a tribal leader, family, or a particular member of the community. Whenever calamity strikes, even modern witchcraft culture looks for someone who ‘displeased’ the gods or ‘ancestors’ in some mysterious way. Hence, many human sacrifices still go to their deaths quite willingly, as they were brainwashed into believing it an honor to be ‘chosen’ as sacrificial victims, which seemingly ‘atone’ for national and personal calamities such as war, famine, drought, or poverty. The insane Roman emperor Nero, (AD 67,) dipped Christians in hot wax, slowly cremating them to burn as living torches in his garden. This was more than satanic torture. These inconceivable acts were human sacrifices to Satan to ‘buy’ Nero’s continual rule and his own ‘save passage’ to the afterlife. Additionally, these sacrifices to Satan were to gain the devil’s power to obliterate the much-hated God of the Bible; ridiculing Jesus Christ, His resurrection and ascension. Among the many others who professed Christ, Nero also sacrificed Andrew the brother of Peter by crucifying him upside down as “he would not have preached the glory of the cross had he feared to die on it.”
Human Sacrifice in the Far East and the Communist witchcraft of ‘Maya’
The Buddhist-Hindu declaration of Ahimsa, (meaning ‘do no harm’) was, and is generally taught in the Far East and in India – a creed that is also (most scarily!) required from every medical doctor. Quite paradoxically, however, the same dogma exempts religious blood sacrifice from their commandment to ‘do no harm.’ It is important to remember that in paganism, perfection and completion are allegedly achieved in the ‘balance’ of opposites, like in Chinese yin and yang. However, Satanism teaches that opposites are ‘reversed:’ good is bad and bad is good; lies are truth and truth are lies; light is darkness and darkness is light, etc. Blurring the boundaries between opposites and the reversing of opposites, ‘Ahimsa’ followers live by the exact opposite of ‘do no harm,’ which, in practice, translates into ‘do much harm!’
The teaching, (as taught by Hindu ‘god-men,’ the ‘Tibetan Masters,’) which connects with the teaching of Ahimsa, is the communist doctrine of ‘Maya.’ Maya means, the spirit world is reality and everything physical such as pain is merely ‘an illusion.’ Ahimsa, combined with Maya is also taught in Buddhism and Hinduism. In addition to their adherence to their Ahimsa and Maya doctrines, the Chinese, especially during the Shang and Zhou Dynasties, also sacrificed humans to accompany their emperors to the afterlife. In fact, human sacrifice to river and other deities was an integral part of these religions. Wikipedia Online Encyclopedia wrote, “Human sacrifice, including cannibalism and vampirism, was doubtlessly practiced in Tibet prior to the arrival of Buddhism in the 7th century… Lamas, as professing Buddhists… replaced the human victims with [little dolls] made from dough… Nevertheless, there is evidence that outside of Lamaism, there were practices of tantric human sacrifice, which survived through the medieval period… [Tantrism is a movement in Hinduism and Buddhism, based on yoga, ritual sexual intercourse, and ritual human and animal sacrifice.] The 15th-century Blue Annals, a seminal document of Tibetan Buddhism, reports that in Tibet the so-called "18 robber-monks" slaughtered men and women for their tantric ceremonies. Such practices of human sacrifice, as there was in medieval Tibet, was [supposedly] replaced by animal sacrifice or the self-infliction of wounds in religious ritual...”
Maya is also the main teaching of both Nazism and communism – which explains the incredible worldwide socialist suffering we have been witnessing over the past century! It is believed that Maya manifests itself through the teaching of ‘reincarnation,’ which means that humanity is ‘evolving’ up the spiritual ladder; continually growing towards their goal of becoming gods themselves. As the spiritual plane is reality and everything in this physical world is a mere ‘illusion,’ no one can really commit murder, torture, starvation, suffering… Thus, no one can really suffer, starve, etcetera! So, communist dictators like Hitler and Stalin – as all the others, who committed, and still commit mass murder worldwide, do not perceive their crimes as sin – or even as wrongdoing. To them, everything is ‘Maya; they are only focusing on the ‘reality’ of the spiritual level! They believe suffering ‘purifies’ their victims’ souls, and by murdering them most cruelly, they allegedly ‘help’ their victims to reach the ‘next level’ of their ‘evolutionary’ cycle.
Human Sacrifice in India
Among the tribes that functioned during the three centuries of British rule India, the Khonds, especially, were well-known practitioners of human sacrifice. Although Hindus (and Buddhists) are portrayed as passivist religionists, who ‘would not hurt a fly,’ they still adhere to the sacrificial principles of ‘Ahimsa,’ ‘Maya,’ and ancestor worship. As a result, blood sacrifices to the gods, ancestor gods, and especially the fertility ‘mother’ goddess, continued in India as well. Nowadays, it is taught that some sections within Hinduism do not call for literal human sacrifice. As in Buddhism, Hindus [now mostly] do symbolic human sacrifice, or ‘bloodless’ sacrifice. Usually, symbolic human sacrifice calls for a doll made from dough and various other substances, depending on the purpose of the specific ritual. The doll, a substitute for a human sacrifice, then has to be ritually ‘murdered’ to be eaten ritually in an act that reenacts cannibalism; burnt in an open fire, etcetera. [Sounds appallingly similar to voodoo rituals.] Some Hindus might resort to ‘bloodless’ sacrifice, but in times of war or feminine, Hinduism still calls for blood sacrifice to ‘appease’ the gods and avert calamity.
An 8th century temple in Kuknurin is infamous for its history of human sacrifice, while Indian Shakti-worshippers continued with human sacrifice well into our modern era - if indeed they ever changed. Some Hindus still perform the ritual ‘passage of Sati;’ cremating a window with her dead husband to “assure their marital reunion in the afterlife.” Hinduism is also renowned for its blood sacrifice in the form of extremely painful rituals of self-torture and mutilation to induce ‘trances,’ ‘healings,’ ‘prophecy,’ etc. Besides various other kinds of self-induced afflictions, Hindu prophets and ‘healers’ ritually skewer their cheeks with long pins, cut their tongues repeatedly with razor blades, etcetera, as blood sacrifices for their gods. While under the control of strong demons, they then allegedly ‘heal’ their followers by even ‘operating’ on them, using only their bare hands.
What about Human Sacrifice in the Bible?
Once, God commanded Abraham to sacrifice his long-awaited son Isaac on a mountain in the land Moriah, but His angel intervened and God provided a ram as substitute for Abraham’s intended human sacrifice, (Gen. 22:1-19.) This “example” in the Old Testament is a symbol of the New Testament Gospel of God’s Son, the risen Lamb of God, (1 Cor. 10:11.) It was not that God required Abraham to perform human sacrifice to Him, but to make Abraham’s faith and obedience to God the example of all Jesus’ New Covenant believers, (Gal. 3:10-14.)
God does not, and will never require human sacrifice for humanity’s lostness, cursedness, bondage, and sin. No other human save God Himself, the Man Jesus Christ, was holy and sinless enough to become the Ultimate Sacrifice in the place of all humanity, (1 Pt. 1:19; Jn. 3:16.) The ram God provided on Mount Moriah was the symbol of the New Testament Lamb, the Son of God, Who became the One and Only Substitute for all human, animal, and other sacrifice. Abraham’s obedience to sacrifice his son was a symbol of the obedience of true believers, who must place God above all.
Jews and ‘The Binding of Isaac’
Jews understand ‘The Binding of Isaac’ or “the Akedah” as blind obedience opposed to moral choice when it comes to matters of faith in God. Despite all the Old Testament prophesies relating to Who Jesus Is and what He came to do here on earth, they reject(ed) Him as Lord, God, and Savior, (Jn. 1:1-13.) But they do know God never really wanted human sacrifice on Mount Moriah, and see “the Akedah” as personal sacrifice to God. It is true that God always requires personal and emotional ‘sacrifice’ to submit to His will in our lives, (Rom. 12:1-2.) It is as Paul wrote in Gal. 2:20-21, “I have been [spiritually and emotionally] crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God: for if righteousness comes through the [ceremonial, outward, ritual temple] law, then Christ died in vain.”
Jesus probably had this type of “the Akedah” in mind when He commanded, “Do you think that I came to bring [physical] peace on earth… He who loves father, mother, [son or daughter] more than Me is not worthy of Me… He who does not take up his cross and follow Me, [emotional pain for righteousness sake, and emotional death to sin and wrong priorities,] is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life [in human acceptance instead of in Me] will lose it. He who loses his life [because he is rejected and persecuted for My sake,] will find it,” (Mt. 11:34-39.)
