The burning belly of Molech as a prophetic nightmare of abortion
Centuries before Christ, Molech was a demonic entity worshiped by the Ammonites. Their worship of this entity was detestable. Molech was a huge statue with arms and hands extended and curved inward to form a giant altar of burning coals. In another version, he was made with an open throat and abdomen full of fire in which children were thrown and burned alive. God completely prohibited this type of practice in Israel saying:
“There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire . . .” (Deuteronomy 18:10)
But over time the people of Israel entered into apostasy and began to practice this horrendous idol worship. God, in a cry of disappointment, confronted the situation.
“They have built the high places of Topheth, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, which I did not command, and it did not come into my mind.” (Jeremiah 7:31)
Just as this verse claims, the main altar of Molech in the city of Jerusalem was located in the famous Valley of the son of Hinnom. An interesting point is that during the time of Jesus this valley where children were murdered as burning sacrifices to Molech had been transformed into the garbage dump of Jerusalem, and had become a truly cursed place. Even more interestingly is that Jesus, in the Sermon on the Mount, made a direct comparison of this valley to hell:
“If your eye causes you to stumble, throw it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, then, having two eyes, to be cast into hell, where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.” (Mark 9:47, 48)
In any land fill or garbage dump there are worms which feed off of the organic waste, breaking down the cells. There is also fire which incinerates and consumes all that is flammable. In other words, there is decay and destruction. Clearly, Jesus mentioned the Valley of Hinnom to use an earthly example in an attempt to explain the spiritual concept of hell in a way that was easier to understand. When Jesus mentioned this terminology “fire of Gahanna”, he was referring to the man-mad hell, where the nation burned its children as human sacrifices to Molech.
Nowadays this Valley is frequently visited by tourists, and it is common for some people who go there to worship the Lord to identify this part of the tour as the famous “worship service in hell”. In fact, the word hell, which has its origin in Latin, comes from expression “valley of the son of Hinnom” which in the Hebrew language is “Gahanna” (or Hades, in the Greek language).
The “high places of Topheth” is another term which identifies this Valley and has a significant meaning. The word Topheth refers to the drums which were played at a deafening volume to drown out the screams of the children when they were burned alive to Molech.
“For he who requires blood requires them; he does not forget the cry of the afflicted.” (Psalms 9:12)
The historic fact to be considered is that this Valley where the parents ritually murdered their children was transformed into a garbage dump; an earthly version of hell. We must understand the implied analogy at this point to children who are murdered in their mother’s womb. Jesus compared this field of blood, which would later become a garbage dump, to hell itself. This is also a depiction of the mother’s womb where the blood of abortions has been shed.
We can spiritually define abortion as a sacrifice to Molech performed on the altar of the womb. Abortion is the religion of Molech which promises prosperity to all of its worshipers. Oddly enough, they were trading prosperity for sterility in the family.
This may shock you, for now, that is my objective. It is important that we comprehend the spiritual consequences of abortion. A womb subjected to an abortion is also subject to the decay and destruction of evil spirits. It becomes a human garbage dump. These entities act as “worms” or as “the destroying fire of Molech”, resulting in sterility, infirmities, tumors, cancer and serious menstrual problems. Abortion invites a truly intra-uterine hell.
Abortion has an effect on future conception and live births where children are being formed in the tomb of their own murdered brothers or sisters. In terms of spiritual heritage, each unredeemed abortion is an open door to be afflicted by the spirit of death through the future generations. This is also one of the most powerful causes of bankruptcy. When parents invest financially in the murder of their own child, the financial situation of these people is subjugated to the spirit of death. To overcome this is necessary to administer a thorough act of redemption and deliverance.
Many women who have had abortions seek out spiritual help. This is good because I know that abortion is covered up by most people. Many of these women start their dialogues with words such as: “what I am about to tell you I have never told anyone else!” When someone musters up enough courage to make a confession like this, it breaks the bonds of darkness and they are able to be freed from the pain caused by guilt.
When a person has the courage to confess involvement in an abortion (often for the first time), it is important to spiritually disconnect the effects of the abortion considering specifically the details related to the method used. If a child was sucked out, poisoned, pulled out, etc., it is fundamental to spiritually remove these mechanisms of death from that person’s life.
Suddenly, all of the emotional and spiritual weight can overflow into powerful deliverance for these women… The purifying fire of God can come over their lives. All of the pain caused by evil spirits is cast out through their crying, shouting, and vomiting.
To the extent that women who have had an abortion begin to feel forgiven by God, they can begin to forgive others as well. It is much like the painful process of childbirth, but deliverance can be birthed in a wonderful way. The feeling of tons of weight can be removed from shoulders; as the human spirit comes alive once again. The spiritual burden, the emotional torment, the wounded memories, the curse of death, and all that an abortion which is the yoke of Molech entails can be cast off in the name of Jesus.
