I visited the Illinois Holocaust Museum in Skokie, Illinois October 14th and to say that it will be a memorable experience that will forever live with me is an understatement at best.
My spirit has been deeply wounded having read and seen the pictures and viewing several old movie clips of how God's chosen people were persecuted by Adolph Hitler and his countrymen.
There have been many genocides throughout history that were filled with this kind of hate, which could only be brought out by the most evil force known to man and that is a wickedness coming from Satan himself.
Man can be described as nothing less then wicked and evil who could murder totally innocent men, women and children just because they were different in anyway.
Evil exist in the souls of those who show no love for or acknowledgement of God in the heart, but to believe this you must believe in the only One True Sovereign God of all and trust that His WORD is the absolute truth.
Assuredly God's WORD is as true and trusted as it has always been throughout the ages and it tells us that without God....... The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9 KJV
The LORD saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time.... Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God. Genesis 6 NIV. So God chose to destroy the earth with a flood and save only Noah and his family.
The Description of Genocide
From Wikipedia, is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group. While a precise definition varies among genocide scholars, a legal definition is found in the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG). Article 2 of this convention defines genocide as "any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and] forcibly transferring children of the group to another group." Because of the influence of Joseph Stalin, this definition of genocide under international law does not include political groups.
Some criticism of the CPPCG is that when its provisions have been invoked by the United Nations Security Council, they have only been invoked to punish those who have already committed genocide and been foolish enough to leave a paper trail. It was this criticism that led to the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1674 by the United Nations Security Council on 28 April 2006, which commits the Council to action to protect civilians in armed conflict and to protect populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.
Godlessness in the Last Days
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness. Romans 1:18
There have been countless genocides throughout history and in just the last 100 years or so it has been estimated there have been well over 200 million lives lost through genocide and wars. Since the Jewish Holocaust we have seen genocide with loss of life in Cambodia estimated 1.7 million, Armenia estimated 500,000, Bosnia estimated 200,000, Rwanda estimated 800,000, and Darfur estimated 400,000, and Bangladesh estimated at 3 million.
Even now I believe we are living through a holocaust here in America… an ongoing holocaust that began on January 22, 1973, which has to be seen as the most wicked and brutal of all holocausts with the murdering of an estimated 50 million babies before they are allowed their first breath.
With this said; I believe within all of my heart, that in God’s eyes, America has surpassed the degree of evil that Adolph Hitler ever obtained! If you need a confirmation to this statement type, “Partial Birth Abortion,” on a Google search and click on images.
Most Americans do not see this as genocide because they do not know The One True God who has given them the gift of life; therefore, they can not believe when told that God is bringing His judgment upon America for the atrocious acts against these babies and God will revenge the deaths of those little ones.
In my visit to the Holocaust Museum I was blessed to have met a teenage survivor of the Holocaust, Mr. Joe Koenig who had lost his parents Theodore and Sarah Koenig in the Holocaust; although I had just a few minutes with Mr. Koenig, who must be in his eighties now, I was amazed at what seemed to be a man of great integrity and strength. I can only imagine the strength it would have taken to have survived a holocaust or to even be a volunteer in a building that is used to remind the public as to what atrocities that occurred during Adolph Hitler’s reign of terror.
It has often been said, “If you fail to study history’s mistakes then you are doomed to repeat those mistakes.” So we try to study history with the hope of learning the mistakes that were made and hopefully with wisdom and God’s blessings we can change the future.
My Recommendations Are:
1. Everyone should seek an up close and personal relationship with Christ.
2. Everyone should visit a Holocaust Museum or at the least study the history of this event and hopefully you too can say, “Never again.”
Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19 (NLT)
