The Weeping of Rachel heard in Sandy Hook
The horror just now at Sandy Hook Elementary taking the children of love away is more than can be borne right now and is mourned many days into the future. It is a horror because innocents of tender age have been taken away horribly in a way that life should reluctantly should only have to witness and bear in some certain war – the slaying by weaponry. But what have these ever done to be slain in this same manner ? These are innocents. These are children of love.
Coincidently or ironically this has happened before and is the origin of the Christmas Story – the birth of Christ – which is a time now. The Book of Matthew of the Holy Bible – of the true Authorized King James Holy Bible as the only commissioned by Christian King and Kingdom translation of the Holy Bible into the English language for all these years and forever – recorded the Birth of Christ and tells the story in Chapter Two.
The birth of Christ fulfilled all the Words of God and His Promise to Israel and all the World. But there was evil then too and horribly again the lives of many children of love, the innocents, were silenced in the earth. These had done nothing to deserve this. God tells us there is no excuse for sin, the breaking of His Commandments and Laws, but there is forgiveness from Him and through Jesus Christ. Murder is sin. There is no excuse. But war is ordered and conducted to relieve the nation and world of a larger evil if left to flourish unopposed. It is a solution and cure against evil that refuses the love of the nation and of the world at large.
The sin of the love of life as materialism and lusts in excess, even addictions, are the death of love for nation and world – and those who live them have no excuse for the sins and breaking of God’s Laws and Commandments to fulfill their lusts, even murderers. Murder has no justification. There is no excuse for it.
We read this history recorded in the Holy Bible of an eerily same time, Christmas, when this same inexcusable slaying of innocent children occurred and was burned in memory and memorialized in history in the Holy Bible – recorded and remembered for all time….. for Herod sought to kill the baby Jesus:
Book of Matthew
16 ¶Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.
17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,
18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
There are those in America that historically have chosen the coldness of isolationism in times of war and needful socialisms that demanded their contributions and participation with the rest of the Good Nation – choosing the coldness of isolationism refraining from the love for nation and world and have politicized that, offering an inexcusable way of life hypocritically as being righteous in some manner to hide the sin of love of self in materialism and excess of lusts and addictions serving same. Even recently it was termed as “the 47 percent” and politicized again in this same manner. As God warned, their deeds of self preservation that no money can secure will be visited and gave way to defense by contribution and participation at the invasion of Pearl Harbor and the 911 Terrorists Attack – and that – after years and years efforts of repatriation, as it were, of common socialisms after the resultant Great Depression and vast economic failure due to them. Further isolationism from the scourges of war would leave them conquered and dead, then and now. Further fulfilling of lusts will leave the nation and world in economic and social chaos unimaginable.
Sadly we look to a history of other children in the world that through these failures of humanity have perished. We look to the children of Africa and even Bangladesh and elsewhere nature itself has taken their lives in sacrifice, by the God of nature, as a bound testimony and sacrifice to destroy that heart of stone who the coldness and selfishness will not afford simple daily bread.
Selfishness and the fulfilling of lusts in excess has yielded such a cold shoulder to the nation and world. President John F. Kennedy brought the warmth of love to this nation and world in that short time and asked our contribution and participation long into the future. We find the admonition in the Holy Bible….
ROMANS Chapter 13
12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
President Kennedy turned the powers to eliminate Nuclear Warfare which they gave ear, after the horror of the mass slaughter exhibited in their use was realized by the humanity of the world. This is why he was slain – by that coldness of selfishness and self preservation, to continue that Cold War. And so the question from JFK to the world goes, what business does ANYONE have with a nuclear weapon of mass destruction ? None.
In the sacrifices of many children and adults we bind these to the alter of God as witness and testimony against them and ourselves to greatly increase that heat of mutual love – to love thy neighbor as thyself – to melt the coldness of the selfish turned shoulder. Please play these for the message….. THIS is what these songs are about….

6 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
7 The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.
8 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

13 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the Lord helped me.
14 The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.

20 This gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter.
21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.
22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
23 This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.

27 God is the Lord, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.
28 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
29 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
1 O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.
3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
4 Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face evermore.
5 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.
7 He is the Lord our God: his judgments are in all the earth.
8 He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
9 Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;
10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:
11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:
12 When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it.
13 When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people;
14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;
15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
16 Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread.
17 He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:
18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:
19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the Lord tried him.
20 The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free.
21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:
22 To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.
