Jeremiah 1:5 (KJV) Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
God knows us before we are even born. He has plans and a purpose for us. We may never know what that is this side of heaven but trust if we are being obedient, He is achieving His purpose. When a life is taken before it even has a chance, someone is being stopped from fulfilling their destiny, which in turn impacts other lives.
Luke 1: 41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: Wow!!
Before John the Baptist was born, he recognized Jesus who also had not been born yet. Do you get how deep that is? John, nor Jesus, were clumps of cells. They were alive and with purpose!
Psalm 22:10 (KJV) I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.
Exodus 20: 13 (KJV) Thou shalt not kill
Psalm 106:37-38 (KJV) Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood
Comparing abortion to child sacrifice? Yes. Anything we put above God is an idol to us. Giving in to lust of the flesh, convenience, keeping secrets… when we justify abortions with these or any other excuses, we are putting that excuse over God and what He says.
Those that profess salvation and are pro-choice, you are wrong. Not because I say so, but because His word says so. Those that profess salvation and support any of the current hot button topics that are politically correct but not Biblically correct, you are wrong. Not because I say so, but because His Word says so. If your profession is real and this is your stance, I’m sure God has already dealt with you. Please don’t harden you heart. And if your profession isn’t real… if it’s just a head knowledge like we’ve discussed before… the first thing I would beg you is to make it real and get a heart knowledge. And for those who may read this who don’t even pretend to care about the things of God, He is real. Heaven is real. Hell is real. And the only way to eternal salvation is through Jesus. I beg you not to harden you heart but to realize that if you have not already been called to accept the gift of salvation, you will be. Please don’t turn it down. Message me if you need help.
I leave you with these last thoughts:
Proverbs 6: 16-19
These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
There is no more innocent blood than that of an unborn child.
Isaiah 5:20 (KJV) Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
It’s not good to be in a place where you are calling good that which God has called evil. Woe unto you.
And to those of us who have heavy hearts over this issue, there is hope: 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV) If my people, which are called by my name, shall 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
And it is our only hope.
