Second post. This post can stand alone but please read : A Dream of Woe! Woe! Woe!
I need to continue with the Woe to abortion.
Pray for me, and for you, as you read this post.
What I saw in my dream is horrific. If you are having dreams of this atrocity, then please skip over this paragraph. Let me assure you that I have not watched any videos on abortion, because it would end my sanity. I have not watched any documentaries, nor had I read about how the abortions are performed. Now is your chance to skip to the next paragraph. What I saw plainly was an infant in a set of hands that had medical gloves on it. What I saw of the infant was a bloody mess. It was the screaming head and torso; no arms nor legs were attached to the body. Then the hands holding the screaming baby simply tossed it into a silver metal bowl. Pray that this image leaves my mind.
We must talk the “why for’s” of abortion. Some use the ideas of the ‘health of the mother‘, the ‘well-being of the child‘, and the ‘fragility of the child‘ as excuses to remove the babe from the womb. All these ideas are false teachings.
For does the Bible not teach us there is a time for everything? Does it not teach us that The Lord our God knows us before the womb?
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born and a time to die, …
For the excuse of the ‘mother’s health’: What gives us, humans, the right to decide that a mother’s life is more important than the babe’s? Since the Lord formed us and knew us before the womb, who is to say the babe might be a blessing to the rest of the family, and the mother’s body just a vessel for that planned by God babe? By the mother taking this decision from the Lord she has said she knows more than He. Who is to say that that babe might be a great leader of souls to the Lord? Who is to say the mother might become a greater stumbling block to souls, more than she is now? The only One Who Knows which is chosen, before the pregnancy, is being taken out of the equation.
Then let us talk the ‘well-being of the child’. If the mother does not want her child she has options. But if she chooses to keep the child and her family forsakes her, she must have faith that the Lord will provide. Then, if she is loaded down in sin and cannot bring herself out, people might tell her that her child is better off never seeing her like that or being abused by her. Once again they are taking the step of the Lord. They are not accepting that God will know what could be best for either the mother or the child.
Another excuse is the ability of mothers to know if their child will have a handicap, (fragility), we see the child removed from the womb. Yes, these children could cause Mom to have more work with the child; and yes, the child may be different from other children; but oh the blessing the mother might be taking away from her reward. Once again the lust of convenience is used as an excuse. The work of the Lord is also removed.
10 Woe to him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?
11 Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.
12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: …
Each of the reasons above are not the only reasons that a mother might abort her child, but they seem to be the most “popular.” They are just an easy excuse to not have to take care of a babe. What is happening is the mother has chosen herself over her babe. She has made her lifestyle her idol. She is choosing her comfort over her child’s. She has made herself her god. Her ease of life is her lust.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lust of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
I wish to put this forth: Exodus 21:15 “ And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.” Just because it does not specifically say “the mother smiteth the child,” does not mean it should be overlooked. Could you imagine how large a book the Bible would be if every sin were categorized? Who is to say that picking our nose is not a sin, instead of a social no-no? We were given brains to use for this purpose.
Then let us continue down the chapter to verse 22:
22 If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.
23 And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life, …
Come on, are we so simple in our thoughts that we can take this as meaning that the child’s life has no value. You should read some of the comments that these verses bring about. They take the words of : “ no mischief ” to mean to the mother. We all know that preemies can live outside the womb. These verses mean, if the scuffle causes premature birth and harm comes to the child or mother, or both! If both live and are healthy then the father has no recourse for the penalty of death for harming the child and mother only. Not that the child and mother have not “value.” Verse 23 plainly says a “life for a life.” The one who causes the loss is to be put to death! Oh, I have even read that the ones fighting are just the father and some other man. Not!; that means the men in the scuffle could be complete strangers to the mother. It could even mean the father could be put to death. It could even mean two women fighting. Is it not funny how a non-believer in an issue will pick a few verses and ignore the rest to make their point?
Now back to the ideas of the reasons for abortions. I see no other truth to the matter than – – the mother putting herself over her child. And, the mother putting herself over the Lord. Her convenience, her life style, her finances, her age, her any reason you can think of. This mother has made herself her own idol. She is no different than the people who bought babies to sacrifice to Baal. They sacrificed to supposedly protect their towns, i.e. way of life. The long list of reasons the people would literally burn their child is horrid and filled with ignorance. And yes, they would even cause premature births to have a child to sacrifice.
Do you know in Jeremiah it says as the Lord was talking and he said that this sin was so horrific that he did not think to put it into the law. He never thought His people would be participants of such sin. I did not say He did not know such evil exists, but He thought His people loved Him so that they would never participate. Besides, do not all the other laws points to them not participating! But again, man is so rebellious that He should have put it in. Yes, man is so childish and evil that they often say, “well, the Bible doesn’t say it directly“. But any true Child of God knows in his heart, that the simple words of, “Thou shalt not kill” means “murder your children”, means “sacrifice your children”. What about ‘thou shalt not make images/idols’? Again, the sinful will use any excuse to do; or cause to do; or lead to do – any sin they want for themselves or others.
3 And say, Hear ye the word of the LORD, O kings of Judah, and inhabitants of Jerusalem; Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, …
4 Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, …, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents:
5 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:
On a personal note. These two post are so hard for me to type. The thoughts are taking a lot out of my spirit. I have to put the pieces away for hours before I can continue. I have to pray for calm, peace and comfort.
Pray for me, and for you, as you read this post.
I have a duty to tell any mother who has chosen this route that yes, “The Holy Father still loves you.” Through His Son you can find forgiveness for the life taken. He would never leave us forsaken, unless we choose to stay in our reprobate minds. If my posts seem harsh and maybe uncaring, then I apologize. I mean for them to be as the Lord would have you to read them. If you feel convicted then just talk it over with the Lord. Learn about the Lamb and how He can give you comfort and healing. Thus, you have to repent and seek help in His Word.
I try to end each post with a prayer.
I will pray that as the readers read these posts, that the Lord guides them to read the truths as He would want us to read. I pray for the lost souls that an abortion, sacrifice, or the taking of an innocent life can cause. I pray for the babe and for the mother. I pray for the conviction of the medical practitioner and for the govern. I pray for the souls of New Babylon and for the ones that should come out of her. I pray that one soul, Lord, reads these posts and You are able to touch them. I pray for comfort and honesty.
