The Wake-up Herald
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 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. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 13:11-14

Where Are Our Tears?
By Robert McCurry
Remember the April 20, 1999, Columbine school massacre? Students Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17, opened fire at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., killing 12 classmates and a teacher and wounding 26 others before killing themselves in the school's library.
Remember the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks? 2,976 died.
Remember the January 8, 2011, Arizona massacre at a political meeting held by Democratic Representative Gabrielle Giffords in a supermarket parking lot? Six people died and Giffords had a critical head wound. In total, 19 people were shot in the rampage. Among the six people killed was one of Giffords' aides and Arizona's chief federal judge, John Roll, as well as Christina-Taylor Green, a 9-year-old girl who was born on the day of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. She recently was elected to the student council at her elementary school; she wanted to talk to Gifford about her interest in public service.
No one is safe anywhere. Blood is coursing down the corridors of our schools, workplaces, malls and streets. The list of tragedies is too long to include here. We are powerless to stop it.
Many tears have been shed over the loss of these lives. This is as it should be. But there were four thousand others who died on the same day of these tragedies.
Remember January 22, 1973? This was the day the Supreme Court ruled to legalize abortion on demand. Where are the tears for the more than sixty million babies killed by abortion since that infamous day?
America has ignored God’s clear commandment: “Thou shalt not kill” (Ex 20:13).
“Hear ye the word of the LORD … Thus saith the LORD of hosts …; Behold, I will bring evil upon this place … Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known … and have filled this place with the blood of innocents; They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind” (Jer 19:3-5).
God has given America solemn warning: ‘…Since you did not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you.’ (Ezekiel 35:6b).
We have sown bloodshed in the womb and we are reaping its horrible harvest in our streets. We are reaping the horrible consequences of what we have sown.
There have been many strong warnings from God to America to repent; but the government approved, funded and protected abortion bloodshed industry has continued unabated, thanks to passive, silent pastors and church members who are apparently more interested in their ‘bless me meetings’ than the cries of the murdered aborted babies.
It is folly and fatal to ignore God. “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy” (Prov 29:1).
It’s Repent or Perish. There are no other options.
Wake-up, Pastors! Wake-up, Christians!
