Ezekiel 22:30 =“And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.”
This was a very dark time in the history of the nation of Israel. A reading of the whole 22nd chapter reveals how far the people had strayed from what God had intended them to be. Because of the conclusion God had come to here in verse 30, He pronounces His judgement on His people in verse 31. It reminds us of what the writer of Hebrews said in Hebrews 10:31= “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
From my perspective I feel we are morally where the Israelites were in our society today. We need to ask ourselves “Am I making up the hedge and standing in the gap for God in regards to the corrupt thinking and practices that are going on today?” This is especially important in regards to the preborn.
Another year is winding down. This month is the month we celebrate Thanksgiving. As we look back at what has happened this year, we have much to be thankful for. I am thankful for the health and protection the Lord has provided for my wife and me. We have traveled many miles presenting the ministry of BFLW in so many churches. Our health has even seemed to have improved in recent months and we already have half of next year scheduled. The Agape Pregnancy Resource Center has a director selected to replace Nancy and we are in the process of finding a replacement for me in this next year. The Lord has really blessed this ministry and we already have plans laid out for next year that will move the ministry forward even more. All of our Pregnancy centers are doing well financially, and our 3 AIM centers are doing well as well. Praise the Lord for all your prayers and support as we seek to rescue babies from abortion.
Let’s be encouraging our high school students to get involved in our Essay contest. The deadline is January 31st, 2024. The theme this year is “BEING PRO-LIFE AND CHRISTLIKE”. You can find the information and guidelines at www.bflw.org/essays.
Have a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving.
