Rivers of Blood
A Brazilian pro-life Evangelical writes about the contraceptive culture and prophecies in Revelation
LifeSiteNews Guest Commentary by Julio Severo
BRAZIL, December 17, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) — In the early days of the human race, Cain killed Abel and buried him, and the Bible says that Abel's blood cried out from the ground. The murder of Abel did not go unpunished or forgotten.
In the end times, the Bible tells us that rivers, seas and the fountains of water will “become blood as of a dead man” (Revelation 16:3-4), explaining that because of the shedding of innocent blood (see Revelation 16:5-6), judgment shall come.
From the beginning to the end, the Bible makes it clear that no murder of innocents goes unpunished, because their blood cries out for justice.
Today, perhaps in fulfillment of these prophesies, rivers have become deposits of annihilated lives. Hundreds of millions of women use pills and other birth-control devices that provoke micro-abortions that end flushed in toilets, and then into rivers.
Micro-aborted children: Who cares?
The current generation was conditioned not to know or care that one of the functions of contraception is to provoke imperceptible micro-abortions. (To understand the way IUD and hormonal methods annihilate recently-conceived lives in the womb, see: http://www.epm.org/artman2/publish/prolife_birth_control_pil...)
How many users of “the pill” know that hormonal contraception not only prevents conception, but also prevents a newly-conceived embryo from implanting in the mother's uterus? A new human being, too tiny to see, dies of hunger, and is flushed out of his mother's body with her next menstrual cycle. The contraceptive pill not only represents the refusal of God's gift of new life, but it actively destroys it.
The current generation lives a planned and conditioned life, where the priority is material comfort and pleasure. With that mentality, children become burdens and hindrances. With contraception, they become options and disposable items, where governments and individuals impose controls and limitations.
In an age of planning, it is easy to discard human life. Even those who are called Christians use the same worldly means, spilling innocent blood into rivers.
The Contraceptive Religion: Socialism and Esotericism take aim at human reproduction
Is not the Bible correct when it says that the people of God suffer destruction because they lack knowledge? How many, among the people of God, know that Margaret Sanger (1879-1966), who coined the term “birth control”, had strong connections to the New Age, socialism and sexual depravity?
In her first essay, The Woman Rebel, she confessed, “Birth control appeals to the advanced radical because it is calculated to undermine the authority of the Christian churches. I look forward to seeing humanity free someday of the tyranny of Christianity no less than Capitalism”. 
Sanger also had profound links to Nazism. Before World War II, Sanger had close contacts with Nazi Germany officials, because the Nazi system of total planning and control was much more open to her ideas of total control over human reproduction.
While Sanger struggled to promote the controversial idea of birth control in the US, in Germany there was no opposition. Nazism welcomed the family-planning ideology promoted by Sanger. With its vision brutally based on the theory of evolution, the Nazi government saw birth control as a normal component of its policy of planning and control over the human "animal".
In Nazi Germany, medicine was at the service of the “collective well-being” ideology. Any measure was acceptable to achieve a greater benefit. “Unfit” lives could be sacrificed, if the result was to improve the quality of life of productive human beings. Nazism was similar to Communism in that it helped to inspire the modern culture of materialism, where so-called science and technological advancement ignore the intrinsic value of human life.
Even though modern governments do not impose all the Nazi policies of social control, the role and effort by governments in the indoctrination of the masses in contraceptive planning is undeniable. Nazism died, but government intentions of control over reproduction live on.
Modern technocratic systems of population control and family planning have deeper roots in the occult movements of the 19th century. Before Margaret Sanger, Annie Besant (1847-1933), the famous British theosophist, distributed leaflets teaching couples how to have fewer children. No, she did not work in pagan Africa or pagan India, but in the mostly Protestant England. With her new ideology, Besant preached that smaller families were a blessing.
Besant, whose work influenced Sanger, had come from an unsuccessful marriage with an Anglican priest, next getting involved with socialism, theosophy, the New Age and lesbianism. But so-called Protestant England did not care about her lesbianism, her occultism, or that in the Bible God states that children are blessings and that blessed is the man that has many children, like a quiver full of arrows.
The contraceptive religion of Besant, with all its consequences, prevailed over the superficial Christianity of the English people. Her heresies did not begin in the Christian churches and it did not hit the Christian churches first.
Besant's aim was a place untouchable by the church pulpits: the Christian marriage bed. From this intimacy, far away from pulpits, a new ideology, a new religion was spread that eventually swallowed the truth proclaimed from the pulpits, casting into oblivion the Biblical idea that bigger families are big blessings.
It is no accident that Sanger founded in India (the same India venerated by esoteric mystics like Besant) the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), the largest and oldest abortionist organization in the world. Today, the UN and IPPF work together to implement policies of contraceptive planning around the world. Those organizations see abortion and homosexuality not as murder and perversion, but as unalienable human rights. Such work is perfectly tuned to the goals and dispositions of socialist ideology.
The vision of Besant, Sanger, socialism, the UN and IPPF, contraception is the rejection of the unfit and the acceptance of theosophical, technological, Nazi and socialist planning over human reproduction. In the Bible vision, contraception is the rejection of the planning of God over the married sexual life, in a modern autonomy where individual independence is proudly preached — at the cost of God, but never at the cost of the State.
Illusory Rights and Freedom: State Planning vs. Divine Planning
The result is that the current generation, including most Christians, trust in the technological devices of contraception the same way the German people trusted in the technology and social planning of Nazi Germany and the same way the Soviet people trusted the state planning of the communist Soviet Union. Both socialist systems preached the contraceptive religion of Margaret Sanger and Annie Besant.
The illusory freedom offered by hormonal contraception has cost lives that are technologically hindered and rejected from a natural and just refuge in the womb. The uterus of the modern woman, by the will of social planners, became a little Nazi death camp, where the conceived life, forced into a micro-abortive contraceptive program, is immediately discarded. It is the state and theosophical planning invading the sanctuary of life, bringing destruction.
The contraceptive culture asserts the right of men and women to be free from all divine planning in their lives, but it is never open for them to be free from surreptitious government planning. At the end, with so many acquired rights — sexual rights, reproductive rights, etc. —, the individual is intoxicated by the illusion that, living under the contraceptive planning of the United Nations and his national government, he is free.
Sin always tends to lead to more sin. The countries that first welcomed birth control were also the first ones to legalize abortion. The nations today that have the highest rates of contraception are exactly the nations where surgical abortion became a right as sacred as was considered sacred the right of the pagans to sacrifice new-born babies to their gods. The difference is that the new bloodthirsty gods are respected because of their cloak of scientific sophistication.
In historic pagan religions, the priest was predominantly homosexual. Coincidentally, the most contraceptive nations are also fervently pro-sodomy. The contraceptive “religion” revived, in a sophisticated and “scientific” way, paganism, whose homosexual priesthood and sacrifice of babies were sacred. The “right” to sodomy and abortion is sacred today in the contraceptive countries. Only coincidence?
The contraceptive religion versus the pro-life culture of the Kingdom of God
The United States, Europe and United Nations are exporting and imposing the contraceptive “religion” throughout the world. No religion today has more adherents and faithful observers than the religion of contraception. In fact, the contraceptive religion has strong presence in the mainline world religions, as Christianity, Hinduism, and Buddhism, and it has been gradually penetrating Islam as well.
As in the case of Freemasonry, the contraceptive religion permeates world religions as a parasite, but the Masonic religion is losing in numbers and strength in relation to its contraceptive rival.
Even though it penetrates all religions, the contraceptive religion is unable to make the smallest infiltration in the Kingdom of God.
The culture of the Kingdom of God is pro-life, pro-conception, pro-children and pro-family and it is totally against abortion, micro-abortion and homosexual and other sterile and perverted sex relations. For men and women attuned to the culture of the Kingdom of God, children are blessings and each new birth is as it were a Christmas, making a family bigger and richer.
Christmas, which is commemorated as the birthday of Jesus Christ, is a time of joy and happiness. As Mary welcomed the baby Jesus in her womb, so every woman who opens herself fully to her maternal role is receiving not only a little child, but also the presence of Jesus himself. Jesus says:
“Whoever welcomes a child in my name welcomes me. Whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me”. (Mark 9:37)
The joy and happiness of Christmas are multiplied with each birth that we welcome in the name of Jesus. When a Christian woman welcomes her maternal mission in the name of Jesus, she is welcoming not only a baby that comes as a gift planned by God, but also more power from the Kingdom of God. The God who planned the sexual and reproductive life of Mary knows well how to plan the size and number of his blessings for each womb and family, whenever he is given the opportunity.
The beautiful example of Mary contrasts sharply with modern examples, where wombs are closed to the full extent of the blessings of God and are open to the contraceptive illusion, with all its micro-abortive consequences filling rivers with blood.
Blood, Justice, and Judgment
Does the bloodshed of annihilated lives by hormonal contraception and dumped in rivers have some relation with the bloody rivers prophesied in Revelation? We do not know.
What we know is that there is a real apocalyptic scenario of hundreds of millions of women who, knowingly or not, micro-abort their recently-conceived babies through chemical contraception. Next, with a mere flush, those tiny micro-aborted babies end in rivers, transforming them into rivers of blood.
What we know also is that Revelation makes it clear that judgment shall come. And thousands of years ago the Bible explained that the shedding of innocent blood causes the land to be polluted:
“You shall not pollute the land in which you live, for blood pollutes the land, and no atonement can be made for the land for the blood that is shed in it, except by the blood of the one who shed it”. (Numbers 35:33 ESV)
As it happened in the phenomenal technological and scientific advance of Nazi Germany, the cost of modern progress of technology and science in human reproduction is delusion and the shedding of innocent blood. Hormonal contraception has transformed modern, sexually active men and women into shedders of innocent blood, leaving society under the curse of uncountable number of murders that shall bring judgment.
Where are the prophets to warn the society about the consequences of its acts?
Where are the prophets to warn about the deceits of contraception?
Where are the prophets to warn that the blood of innocents cries out for justice and exposes the whole society to destruction and judgment?
