The Great Evil of Our Time: Mutilation of Children

The topic of this week’s Nearing Midnight article is so unpleasant, I’ve put off writing it for several weeks. One reason for the delay is partly disbelief. I find it hard to believe that this evil act is taking place in our nation. Thousands of Children are being medically mutilated to change their sex to one that is different from the gender they had at birth.

Our society has become so depraved that not only have we given God the middle finger, but we’ve also given common sense the same gesture. Children do not have the ability to take out loans, sign work contracts, or get married; yet, they are regularly authorized to agree to medical procedures that will last a lifetime.

There was once a time when severe punishment would be handed down to anyone who tried to instruct children about nontraditional sexual relationships. It was generally viewed that the only people who should talk to kids about sex are their parents.

In my early years, I had a friend that was a horrible negative influence on me. We were both around 12 years old, and this guy was pure evil. For some idiotic reason, I thought he was cool, and I looked up to him. We would go into stores, and he would constantly steal things. I didn’t agree or participate in his acts of thievery. I was amazed at his profound levels of criminality. We weren’t even teenagers, and he was trying to talk me into getting a girl pregnant so I could get on welfare.

As I reflect back now, I’m mystified that I contemplated the notion of getting free money from the government. At such a young age, I didn’t have the ability to realize what a dumb move it would be to have a child out of wedlock. Welfare is a bondage that destroys lives. I thank God that my so-called friend soon moved away. I’ve done a web search of his name, and nothing has ever come up. My best guess is that he reformed his ways or he is simply dead.

We are no longer in the days where advocates of sex change operations for Children could only operate in the shadows. These people are proud of their view and are pushing hard to make it a criminal act to resist them. They claim you are abusing your child by denying them sex therapy. The AMA is working to force all doctors to agree to the left’s policy on the mutilation of children.

I’ve read several news articles about drag queens going to schools to meet with children. The article presents the purpose of the visit as just innocent fun, where the drag queen is there to read the kids a story. The reason why a man in women’s clothes is at the school is to advocate for his lifestyle.

Most parents would be outraged if a school had a career day and a bank robber showed up to advocate for his criminal occupation. And yet we have teachers thinking they have the right to tell our children that they can change their gender through surgery and chemical castration.

There are lots of cases where a parent is trying to impose a different sexuality on their own children. In about every example I’ve seen, it has been a mother who is advocating a change for their son. I’m sure it happens with girls in which both parents are involved, but I’ve strangely only witnessed the interaction with a mother and son. If some of these women are putting their children into a harmful situation because they are insane, we no longer have a legal system that protects them.

This mutilation of children is one more example of why I could never doubt the existence of the devil. This is clearly planned by an evil mind to corrupt our natural sex roles. To go after children just shows how Satan’s nature works.

It is not possible to change the sex of someone through a medical procedure. You can slice off the breasts of little girls or the penises of little boys, but they are still the sex they had at birth. Caitlyn Jenner has had all types of surgery and has taken all manner of hormones, but I can still take one look at him and tell he still has the body of a man.

The root of all evil – money – has strong ties to why a growing number of hospitals are promoting sex change operations for children. It is a very profitable business. Since most children’s hospitals have huge endowment funds, the willingness to spend money is the only limit in operations that involve children. With sex change operations the new fad, these types of surgeries easily get the green light.

The hottest part of hell is reserved for anyone who promotes the mutilation of children. Jesus warned that offending children is enough to earn his wrath. I can only imagine that people would curse the day they were born that dared to damage the body of a child.

“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea” (Matthew 18:6).


Computing Putin, Politics and Prophecy

The first thing I input in our computation postulation is the politics of the matters involved. The mid-term elections at this point of time are 3 weeks away. If looked at through a prism based on sanity, things do not bode well for the political party in power as Election Day, November 8, approaches.

Some, perhaps many, say that the culture in the nation is so corroded by the woke inculcation by corrupt educators that hope is lost. The anti-God, anti-America voter base, plus the expertise the election cheaters wield means reestablishing an America anything like patriots desire just isn’t going to happen.

These will, it is feared, find a way to retain all three branches of government, thus keep the bureaucracy entrenched to continue taking America down the road to totalitarianism.

Some believe that to avoid being thrown out of power, those bent on shutting down all opposition and resistance will invoke one executive order or another to cancel the mid-term elections on November 8. One possible such executive action is indeed steeped in genuine concern that has arisen almost on cue as Americans get ready to step into the voting booths of the nation.

We have considered previously the great fear associated with the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. I, as a young man in college, experienced it first hand, and at that young age was extremely worried that the U.S. was about to go to war because of Soviet dictator Nikita Khrushchev secretly placing nuclear-tipped missiles only 90 miles from the U.S. mainland. I can’t imagine what adults of the era must have thought, being much better able to assess the situation and the threat to themselves and those they loved and for whom they were responsible.

Such fear, it seems to me, is at present being deliberately generated by those in the current American government. The most profound example of this is the current occupant of the White House saying outright and publicly that Russian President Vladimir Putin is serious in saying he will launch tactical nuclear weapons in his war against Ukraine. –Thus because Putin’s conventional forces are woefully inadequate to carry out their conquest in the war. Mr. Biden said that it is the greatest threat of all-out nuclear war and Armageddon since the Cuban Missile crisis.

This is a thing no president or anyone within his administration would have done previously, given the panic that might ensue among the American public.

My question, wrapped within the title I’ve given this commentary, Computing Putin, Politics, and Prophecy, is: Why is this president allowed to make such a statement publicly and neither his administration underlings, the U.S. State Department, nor the mainstream media are walking back such a likely panic-inducing declaration?

Does it come down to the possibility that those who are determined to maintain power are willing to go so far as to make people think nuclear war is inevitable? If so, why?

Could it be that they seek the suspension of this mid-term election? And are they willing to use the most fear-producing geopolitical diplomatic tool at their disposal to suspend these mid-term elections that many political experts believe will be overwhelming in going against the present make-up of U.S. and state governments across America? Are they willing to declare a national emergency and go to Defcon One (the highest alert of impending nuclear war) in order to keep people from going to the polls to throw the rascals out?

The prophecy part of the computation

While it is very possible that such a tactic could work, that is, the political strategy, wicked as it might be, could lead to the result the perpetrators desire, the worldwide nuclear war wrapped up within their election suspension blueprint, to my way of understanding Bible prophecy, isn’t probable –or even possible. –That is, a global nuclear exchange that would eventuate in fulfilling man’s greatest fear of thermonuclear war consequences isn’t possible. Such a conflict, as I study Bible prophecy from the preTrib view –and that is the only view God’s prophetic Word puts forth, I’m convinced—just isn’t scheduled.

Thermonuclear war that decimates the world is not scheduled this side –the Church Age side— of the Rapture of the Church. (And I’m not saying there won’t be a tactical nuke unleashed at some point, just that massive nuclear war just isn’t prophetically scheduled, as I see it.)

When Christ’s Bride is in the Heavenly Clouds of Glory, all bets are off, as it is said.

I believe this is seen in fore-type by John’s being called into the Presence of the Lamb of God as presented in Revelation chapter 4. Then, when the Lamb (Jesus Christ) unseals the scrolls, things on earth begin playing out in order.

The false peacemaker comes forth (Antichrist on the white horse Rev 6:1). That rider is followed by the red horse rider who takes peace from the earth. This is, quite likely, nuclear war en masse. Yet it will still be controlled by God, else there would be no flesh left on the planet, according to the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.

Another and most important computation to plug into all of this cogitation… seeing all these things beginning to come to pass, what is your and my part, as Royal Ambassadors alive on this darkening planet at this time?

We are, of course, to be looking up (Luke 21:28) for our blessed hope (Titus 2:13). But more than that Command by the Lord Jesus, we are to be salt and light in these dark times, so the Gospel can Shine forth.

Jesus Spoke to this precise time in human history. He is the Alpha and the Omega –the Beginning and the End. He Knows all things –from Eternity past through Eternity future. He Spoke directly to us who are witnessing all these things of end times import.

About these reports we are getting of impending nuclear war –for whatever purpose they serve—Jesus said the following in answer to His Disciples’ question about the end of the age.

“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet” (Matt 24:6).

Do you truly understand Jesus’ words about these rumors of wars and even wars we hear in the news at present? He does not tell us to prepare to fight or defend ourselves. He says plainly, “see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”

The word for troubled is terrified. We are not to be terrified by these wars and rumors of wars. The end is not yet upon us, and prophecy will play out.

Figured Magnificently in our Computation, then, is the Rapture of believers before that end comes. I, like many believers, sense that moment of Christ’s Call, “Come up here!” must be near indeed.

To be part of that Call by the Savior and Lord, here is what you must do.

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9-10).
