‘China is reaping the consequences of its brutal one child policy.
After killing approximately 400 million unborn babies in abortions — some of them by force, the Asian nation is now dealing with a new problem: a shrinking population.
The Washington Times reports new data released by the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics this week show more deaths than births in 2022. After 9.56 million births and 10.41 million deaths last year, there are approximately 850,000 fewer people in China, according to the data.
The following was written by Inglis Fleming (1859-1955) (One of his grandsons was Pete Fleming, one of the five missionaries killed by the Auca Indians in 1956.)
‘”Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.” Psa. 149:5. “Any bird can sing in the daytime; God gives songs in the night,” it has been remarked.
Above all the power of trial and weariness and pain, the Holy Spirit of God can lift the suffering Christian, so that “in the night” of testing and “upon their beds” of affliction, they may sing aloud with joy.
Happy is the believer who, confident in his God, can thus rise above his present circumstances and rejoice in the Lord. Such an one, in the spirit of Habakkuk of old, may exultingly say,
“Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labor of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength, and He will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and He will make me to walk upon mine high places.” Hab. 3:17-19.
To the Jew, the fig tree, the vine, the olive, the fields, the flocks and the herds spoke of prosperity. Without these and their produce, famine would stare them in the face. Habakkuk’s confidence is of a marked character therefore. Is not such faith to be followed? May we not say that it honors God and is delighted in by Him?
“How great is Thy goodness,” exclaims David, “which Thou hast laid up for them that fear Thee; which Thou hast wrought for them that trust in Thee before the sons of men!” Psa. 31:19.
Paul could write from the Roman imprisonment which he was enduring, “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.” Phil. 4:4.
“Songs in the night” are these. And perhaps the night seasons are allowed to come upon us in order that such songs may rise from our hearts.
Amid the changing circumstances of life we may not be able to rejoice in them, but the Lord in His all-sufficiency is above all circumstances. In Him let us rejoice, as we journey on to our everlasting portion.
“And there in mine inheritance, My kingly palace home: The leaf may fall and wither, Not less the spring will come. Like winds and rains of winter, These earthly sighs and tears, Till the golden summer dawneth Of the endless year of years.”‘https://www.wholesomewords.org/etexts/fleming/songs1.html
‘The doctor who prescribed the reversal pill to Amrita, Dr Dermot Kearney, came to the stage and the thunderous applause he received would make anyone think he was the most popular doctor in the country. Dr Dermot looked towards the small group of abortion supporters which had congregated nearby and directed a sentence towards them ‘People here say they are pro-choice – we were the ones helping the women who decided they wanted to try and save their babies’. He went on to add ‘The pro-life movement has one simple message ‘Every single life has equal, inherent value without exception’.’ https://www.marchforlife.co.uk/aiovg_videos/dr-dermot-kearney-march-for-life-uk/
The following are satire videos which highlight “the alarming new trend of corporations like Disney, Amazon, and Starbucks providing abortion travel benefits while often cutting maternity benefits. The new incentives ensure women are back in their cubicles to make the corporation money in just a matter of days.” Here in Australia it is impossible to know how many babies are murdered via abortion each year!
In Biden’s America the FBI and others are being used against those with whom the Left does not agree. For instance, ‘Just days after launching a massive raid on a pro-life father in Pennsylvania, FBI agents have questioned pro-life sidewalk counselors in St. Paul, Minnesota. This appears to be another fishing expedition in what pro-life Americans are concerned is a clear case of the Bide administration targeting pro-life Americans with more possible bogus charges in an attempt to silence pro-life people nationwide.’https://www.lifenews.com/2022/09/28/after-raiding-pro-life-leaders-home-fbi-targets-pro-life-sidewalk-counselor-in-another-state/
