St. Louis : The Bloodiest City in our Nation

Ezekiel 35:6 “Since you did not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you.”

When you sow bloodshed in the womb you will reap it in the streets

Aftershocks are still being felt after the celebration of the recent baseball Cardinals’ World Series victory, this past Friday.

St. Louis, Missouri  once again makes national headlines, but our city officials and forefathers can’t be proud of the distinction of being the most violent city in our nation according to information compiled by Morgan Quitno Press and FBI figures. The murder rate has skyrocketed over 20 % since last year’s stats. Detroit ranks second in being the most violent. Ezekiel 7:11 “Violence has grown into a rod to punish wickedness.”

There’s no one left in Granite City to kill so St. Louis is the prime target. Granite City bears the title of being the Midwest ’s baby dumping capital. Just five minutes across the river from St. Louis is Hope abortion mill known for late-term abortions and no parental consent is needed to kill another human being. Hosea 4:2-3 “…bloodshed follows bloodshed. Because of this the land mourns…”

Mayor Francis Slay and Police Chief Joe Mokwa are too busy leading the gay pride parade to slow down the murder rate; they just want to put on a nice parade or hold a World Series. Mayor Slay faced the TV cameras and said, “The report is not true, it was bogus.”  “They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. ‘Peace, peace,’ they say, when there is no peace.” Jeremiah 6:14.

The ranking was released as the city was still celebrating the World Series victory. St. Louis has been pumping money into the new million dollar Busch Stadium and spending millions of dollars on urban renewal as the murder rate soars. Abortion in the St. Louis area averages approx. 78-100 a day between the three killing facilities, most being performed in Granite City due to no restrictions and accessibility…

St. Louis is the most dangerous city in America . Its murder rate is 8 times higher than the national average. Rampant crime is not our problem. It is a sign and judgment from God. “…No one could go about his business safely because of his enemy, for I had turned every man against his neighbor.” Zechariah 8:10. Visiting FBI director Robert Mueller said it was too early to tell why some type of crimes were rising faster in the Midwest . St. Louis has been in the top ten most dangerous cities for the past few years.

            Could this be God’s judgment? Get a grip! Let the truth be known that we have stood by and overseen the senseless murders of over 45 million innocent human beings. And the silence from the American Church and the apathy of the church-goers is deafening. We’ve thrown God out of school, removed His Ten Commandments (which our nation was founded on) from public buildings and schools, the world is calling good evil and evil good, and we have no shame. And we continue to ask God to keep blessing America . “If God does not judge America , He is going to have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah .” ~Billy Graham

Our God is a merciful God. He has given us warning after warning through modern-day prophets whom society considers fools; He has spoken to us through parables, signs, and judgments.  God is calling us back to Him and His wrath is being revealed through the wickedness of man and those who are trying to silence the messenger and suppress the truth. Ezekiel 7:14 “Though they blow the trumpet and get everything ready, no one will go into battle, for my wrath is upon the whole crowd.”

            Our nation was founded on biblical teachings and Scripture. And yet, we have forgotten our history and where we’ve come from. Many a pulpit has been silenced and the flame dashed due to the fear of the god in our back pocket.

            We have a responsibility to Almighty God and to the world to let our light shine, to expose evil, and to stand for righteousness. Abraham Lincoln, our sixteenth President, said it best: “On many a defeated field there was a voice louder than the thundering of a cannon. It was the voice of God, crying, ‘Let my people go.’ We were all very slow in realizing it was God’s voice, but after many humiliating defeats the nation came to believe it a great and solemn command. Great multitudes begged and prayed that I might answer God’s voice by signing the Emancipation Proclamation, and I did it, believing we never should be successful in the great struggle unless the God of Battles has been on our side.”

The same can be said today. Can we hear God now? 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If My people who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
