Sit Shake Rollover Card---Come and Join our Fun Challenge at 613 Avenue Create!

Hi there, Crafty Peeps!  A couple of days ago, we started our monthly Anything Goes Challenge at 613 Avenue Create with the optional theme of "Use a Critter."  I would like to show you the Birthday card that I  made for our Challenge but first, to the most important issue of our day.

By now, I know that most of you are already aware and have heard the news about the despicable move of several other states following New York that declared an all out war against the unborn.  They've replaced every Pro-life laws by laws that would allow just about anyone the right to murder babies up to the time of birth.  As a follower of Jesus Christ, I'm appalled and enraged!  My spirit cries foul, seeking justice for these innocent lives.  I cannot just sit and watch while the ungodly uses their governmental power to murder our children.  I may not have worldly influence/position but I know my God-given position in the Kingdom of God.  I an aware of the unlimited power that Christ entrusted me.  I can engage in this spiritual warfare against abortion through faith, prayer and declaration while taking the necessary action as a citizen to destroy this abomination of Abortion in this country.  I may be one person but with God's power working in me, I can certainly make a difference.  If you feel the same way,  let us use every window of opportunity to unite and use anything at our disposal to make a noise---a very LOUD and POWERFUL NOISE to condemn this barbaric and horrendous act of murder in our time.  If  mainstream media wouldn't air our cause, let us CREATE OUR OWN MEDIA and get the real and life giving news out there while we still can.  DO NOT BE SILENT.  SEEK JUSTICE.  BE THE VOICE FOR THE UNBORN!

Whether you believe it or not, this war against the unborn are connected with modern day demonic worship.  Yes---your educated, decent, modern and progressive politicians along with the rich and powerful of our time are all working together under the hands of a demonic international group that is vowed to take control of all the world to pave the way for the demonic leadership of the anti-Christ.  If you don't have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and you reject the wisdom that comes from reading God's Word (the Bible), you will laugh at this and think I'm totally crazy.  But I wouldn't be surprised!  For the spirit of blindness/deception engulfs the ungodly and the perishing.  However, hear my plea.  If something is stirred inside of you and you see Truth in this message, ask JESUS to reveal Himself to you! I believe He will allow His Spirit of understanding to come upon  you---opening both your physical and spiritual eyes (and ears) to the Truth that in Christ.  However,  if you choose to reject Him, you will never ever see the light!  I want to share with you this article from gotquestions.org on "What does the Bible say about child sacrifice?"  If you have eyes to see and ears to hear, let them see/hear what the Spirit of God is saying:

"The horrific practice of child sacrifice has been committed throughout the world for thousands of years. Generally, the sacrifice of a child was intertwined with the worship of a pagan deity, often a fertility god. Worshipers sought to obtain a blessing from their god(s) or to confirm or complete a vow taken in the name of the god. Ancient Aztecs, Incas, and a few other peoples in South and Central America practiced child sacrifice. The same for the Druids of Europe. The city of Carthage in North Africa contains evidence of child sacrifice related to the worship of Ba’al Hammon, a god imported from Phoenicia. Many Roman writers refer to this barbaric act in Carthage. The Bible contains the heart-breaking tale of child sacrifice practiced in the name of Molech (also spelled Moloch or Molek), a god of the Ammonites. Molech worship was practiced by the Ammonites and Canaanites, who revered Molech as a protecting father figure. Images of Molech were made of bronze, and their outstretched arms were heated red-hot. Living children were then placed into the idol’s hands and died there or were rolled into a fire pit below. Some sources indicate a child might also be “passed through the fire” prior to the actual sacrifice in order to purify or baptize the child. Molech worship occurred in the Hinnom Valley near Jerusalem. Because of this, the valley became associated with the idea of Tophet, or hell (Isaiah 30:33; Jeremiah 19:12; Mark 9:45).

God prohibited Israel from child sacrifice in general and Molech worship in particular. Leviticus 20:2-5 states, “Say to the Israelites: ‘Any Israelite or any foreigner residing in Israel who sacrifices any of his children to Molek is to be put to death. The members of the community are to stone him. I myself will set my face against him and will cut him off from his people; for by sacrificing his children to Molek, he has defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name. If the members of the community close their eyes when that man sacrifices one of his children to Molek and if they fail to put him to death, I myself will set my face against him and his family and will cut them off from their people together with all who follow him in prostituting themselves to Molek.’” Many other Old Testament passages affirm God’s zero-tolerance for child sacrifice. Sadly, King Solomon became involved in this horrendous practice, as recorded in 1 Kings 11:4-11, “As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father had been. He followed Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and Molek the detestable god of the Ammonites. So Solomon did evil in the eyes of the LORD. . . . On a hill east of Jerusalem, Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the detestable god of Moab, and for Molek the detestable god of the Ammonites. . . . The LORD became angry with Solomon because his heart had turned away from the LORD, the God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice. Although he had forbidden Solomon to follow other gods, Solomon did not keep the LORD’s command.” Later, the evil king Manassah offered his own son as a sacrifice (2 Kings 21:6), as did King Ahaz (2 Chronicles 28:1-4). The people of Judah participated in this crime against their own sons—a sin so “detestable” that God said it had never even crossed His mind (Jeremiah 32:35). Child sacrifice was one reason for the Babylonian captivity (verse 36). Some critics of the Bible point to the story of Abraham, who laid his son Isaac on an altar and prepared to sacrifice him as directed by God (Genesis 22:1-14). However, in this case, God was testing the obedience and faith of Abraham. God stopped him from actually following through and provided a ram as a substitute sacrifice.

Today, child sacrifice is practiced throughout the world. There has been a resurgence of child sacrifice in Uganda. Witch doctors have been implicated in the mutilation and death of children who were killed in an effort to bring good fortune and wealth to those willing to pay for it. There is also a correlation between child sacrifice and modern-day abortion. Unprecedented numbers of children have been “sacrificed” at the hands of abortionists for the sake of convenience, immorality, or pride. Hundreds of thousands of babies have been killed so that their parents can maintain a certain lifestyle. God hates “hands that shed innocent blood” (Proverbs 6:17), and we can be sure that God will judge this horrendous sin.

For this Card, I used an image from Paper Studio which I had for many years now but haven't used.  I colored it using my Prismacolor markers.  The base is an A2, pre-cut card from Paper Studio and the banner is from Basic Grey.  The inside sentiment is from Studio 112.  I love this fun card.
