What Does God Think About Abortion? Pt 3
(Ver 1.2) I’ve been going through the Bible on the subject of abortion. Specifically in relation to what God thinks about this subject and not the opinions of men. This is now Part 3 in the series so if you have not read these lessons from the beginning I would suggest that you go back and start reading with “Part 1“. So what else does the Bible say about what God thinks about abortion? Obviously we saw some significant things in previous blogs in Judges, even though it is not obvious until you study it that it is related to the subject. But once you see it and understand it, then no one can take it away from you or deceive you into believing a lie. The Bible says in the mouth of two or three witnesses, let every word be established (2 Cor 13:1). So we don’t take a single scripture and make it a theological doctrine, but if we can find more than one verse that says the same thing you better take it to heart. I found another good example given to us in Genesis with the story of Isaac and Rebecca.
Genesis 25:21 And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated of him and Rebekah his wife conceived.
I read this verse and saw several similarities to the first scriptures that I gave you in Judges. Here we have a story of a woman who was barren, never able to have a child but yet wanted one. Isaac prays to God and his wife conceives. So where did the child come from? Was it from God? If this child is from God, is every child from God? If that is true, who are you to terminate him or her? You should really think about that a long time.
Genesis 25:22 And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the LORD.
This time it is not one child but twins, two children. Did you notice that in verse 22 of Genesis 25, it calls them children even before they are born? They are still within their mother’s womb and God calls them children. Not a fetus, not a potential life form, not a future or potential child, children the same title given to babies that are born. If God calls them children, who are we to call them anything else? This is of course a plan of Satan, call something by a different name, call it a fetus or something else, just don’t call it a child. Rebecca then goes to God and asks Him about what is happening inside her body. This is what God’s response is to her question.
Genesis 25:23 And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in they womb and two manner of people shall be separated from they bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger;
If this verse is not enough to set you straight on the subject of abortion and what God thinks about these unborn babies, then I do not know what is. God says these two children represent corporately two nations and two groups of people on the earth. That is really a very heavy duty statement made by the living God, our creator. What if there had been abortion available to Rebecca and she aborted these children? A great number of people would not have been born and two nations would not exist today. God called them nations and people while they were still unborn and in the womb. God recognized who they were and what they would become before they were ever born. That is pretty plain and very clear if you ask me. So we see the fact that God knows not only you, but every descendant that will come from you after you are born. So how does a woman’s right to choose the life or death of her child, affect all of the potential human beings that were supposed to be here, but are not because of this personal decision to terminate your pregnancy? Wow, is God going to hold you responsible for the children that were not born here because what you decided? I would not want to be you to find out.
There are many other verses in the Bible like these that I can give you that will tell you the same thing. God knows you before you are born, even you while you are in your mother’s womb and He has a plan and a purpose for you to fulfill. God knows your name before you are born, he knows where you will live, work and play. God knows every child, grandchild and descendant that will come from you. You can go through the Bible and you will see this. However, let me show you another set of verses that I think is directly related to this subject and speaks volumes about a spiritual truth and a Bible principle that is relevant to this subject of abortion.
Hebrew 7:9 And as I may so say, Levi also who received tithes, paid tithes in Abraham.
Hebrew 7:10 For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.
I don’t know about you but I read these verses and they reveal so much, that I have difficulty knowing where to start talking about them. The primary subject matter is about tithing, but the underlying revelation is far, far greater than that. Hebrews 7:9 speaks of a man named Levi who received tithes. But did you notice that this verse also says Levi paid tithes in Abraham. I’m really not sure if you totally grasp the principle given here. Levi was a great-grandson of Abraham. Abraham had a son named Isaac, Isaac had a son named Jacob and then Jacob had 12 sons and one of them was Levi. How can Levi pay tithes when Abraham paid tithes? Verse 10 gives us the answer, it says he (Levi) was still in the loins of his father Abraham. The Greek word for loins here is a word that can mean the hip area. In other words the sexual organ area of Abraham. What Abraham did, Levi also did. Wow that is pretty strong stuff if you ask me and people don’t have a clue what’s in them and what they are doing to their children today. The spiritual law given here is incredibly far reaching. Out of the millions or billions of sperm cells in Abraham, God recognized that one of them was representative of a future descendant named Levi. God tells us that whatever your father did, you did. This is of course is directly related to abortion, because everyone still comes from a union between a man and a woman. God sees the parts inside of you that create a baby and calls them by a name before they arrive into the world. I hope you are grasping the concepts here for if you do you will never think about sex or aborting a child in the same way again.
