What Does God Think About Abortion? Pt 2
(Ver 1.3) This is Part 2 in a series of advanced Bible lessons about what God thinks about the subject of abortion. If you have not read this series from the beginning I would suggest that you go back and start reading with “Part 1“. There are really so many scriptures in the Bible that deal with the subject of abortion. But, they are only found if you look for them. God says seek and you will find. Which means if you do not seek you will never find. Therefore there is a prerequisite requirement that stipulates that people must search for the truth, instead of searching for lies. What I am teaching you is that it matters what you are looking for. Truth never changes, but your knowledge of the truth will change if you search to find God’s wisdom on the subject. In my last lesson I introduced you to the subject in the Bible and I will continue with the subject of what God thinks about abortion today. Here is another interesting verse of God’s Word specifically about one of His major prophets:
Isa 49:1 Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.
This verse says God knew the prophet Isaiah while he was still in the womb of his mother. He already knew his name. This proves that God knows the names of every aborted child. Then God says “I know what Isaiah will do, I know the plan for hid life, his calling, and his purpose”. I’ve said this before but it will be beneficial to repeat it, if God knew Isaiah in his mother’s stomach, then he knew you while you were yet in your mother’s stomach also. If God knew Isaiah’s name, then he defintiely knew your name before you were born. I am totally convinced that God knows the name of every aborted child that has never breathed a breath of fresh air, tasted food, had a drink of milk or lived to see the sun rise. God knows more than you can imagine right now. It is when people don’t know that they also have a purpose in life that causes them to believe that human life is not valuable in the eyes of God.
Here are some more very powerful words from the Word of God concerning abortion. God speaking to another prophet said the following words:
Jer 1:4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Jer 1:5 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.
Here is another prime example of what God thinks about abortion. God clearly says to Jeremiah that He knew him and set him apart even while he was still in his mother’s womb. This verse said God formed the child in her. If God formed this child He also forms every child. The Bible says that God is no respecter of persons. What God does for one He does for all. If a woman decides to terminate her child after God has formed him or her, then exactly who is she that woman working against. This verse says that God sanctified Jeremiah while he was still in his mother’s womb. If God sanctified Jeremiah today in our world of aborted children, I wonder if God would have selected someone else who was going to be born or would we have just lost this book of the Bible. People who think that God controls everything that is happening in the world are greatly confused and don’t understand what the Bible says. God does not override the will of a human male or female. People do whatever they want to do, even if God doesn’t want them to do it. So if a woman aborts her child and God had big plans for that child what is the result of that abortion? So you ask how do you know God has plans for me or my child? Because His word says He does:
Jer 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
This is an amazing verse of truth. The word here translated in the KJV of the Bible as “thoughts” has the following definition in the Strong’s:
From H2803; a contrivance, that is, (concretely) a texture, machine, or (abstractly) intention, plan (whether bad, a plot; or good, advice): – cunning (work), curious work, device (-sed), imagination, invented, means, purpose, thought.
The underlying definition of this word in the Hebrew means “purpose” or “plan”. God is saying I had a plan for you before you were born, and I have a purpose for you coming into this world. You have a specific purpose from God in being here on this planet. It goes on and says in that verse that it is a good plan and not an evil plan. Here is the same verse in a more literal translation of the Bible:
Jer 29:11 For I know the purposes which I am planning for you, says Jehovah; purposes of peace, and not for evil; to give you posterity and a hope.
That verse really says a lot to me personally and we can clearly see that if God knew Isaiah and Jeremiah before they were even born and He knew what they were supposed to do, then God is revealing to us that He does the same thing for you and I and every other thild that is soon to be conceived. The Bible teaches us to establish the truth in the mouth of two or three witnesses and I have done that very conclusively with these verses. But, I am not through with this subject, so I will continue on it again soon. I thank you for your time in reading about God and His Word. Please leave me a comment if you have the time and be blessed in your study of the truth.
