A Christian man in the UK had a vision of Petersfield Lake, a large lake in Petersfield, Hampshire, and it was filled with blood, not water. And out of the lake came little arms with fists clenched, sticking out all over the lake. Then he said he was lifted up and saw lots of other lakes with little arms sticking up with clenched fists, the whole of the UK.
Then he was lifted up again and saw all of Europe - the same awful sight. Then he was finally lifted up and saw the whole western world, dotted with the same lakes of blood, the same little hands clenched into fists.
The meaning of this horrifying vision is clear. We have shed innocent blood. We have murdered millions of our babies and God’s judgment is coming. In the UK the figure is nearly 10 million, with 4,000 abortions a week.
Even Israel is guilty. Every teenage girl has to go into the army for two years, and that entitles her to free abortions.
Only Northern Ireland held out against it and now the liberals have somehow forced it in even there.
We think we have got away with murder because God has not yet begun to punish us as we so richly deserve.
We forget that God is long suffering, not wishing anyone to perish and end up in Hell. He takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. He has given us over 50 years to repent, to beg his forgiveness and turn back to him.
Instead of turning to him, we are going even further, with moves to make abortion legal on day one of life - a day old baby, if we don’t like his or her looks.
‘If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.’ 1 John 1:9
Jesus Christ shed his holy, innocent blood on the cross of Calvary as a sacrifice for sin. Putting our faith in him and his great sacrifice is the only way we can be forgiven.
God’s judgement is beginning to fall, but individually we can still get on our knees and beg forgiveness and mercy.
The man at our church saw lakes of blood, but there is another lake, the lake of fire. God does not want any of us to end up there for eternity. He has made a way of escape, a way of repentence through faith in the Lord Jesus.
Won’t you turn to him today?
Here is a sample prayer: ‘Lord Jesus, I am a sinner. I have done, said, thought things that offend you.’ Tell him what your sins are – for example worshiping any thing or person other than him, using his name in vain, failure to honor parents, lies, thefts, murder including abortion, immorality, coveting property, husbands, wives , etc etc.
He knows your sins already, but you need to admit them and ask for forgiveness. Then you could say: ‘Please forgive even me, Lord. I believe that you really did shed your holy blood on the cross for my sins. I believe you were buried in the tomb and rose to life on the third day according to the scriptures in your book, the Bible. Please wash my sins away and make me one of your people, Lord Jesus. I put my trust in you.'
