Gal 4:16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
(Ver 1.1) Here in the U.S. we have been living through a very nasty election process costing billions of dollars. This Bible lesson is intended for my U.S. readers, but the application of the Bible principles taught will apply to any nation where you are permitted to vote. This of course will be a potentially controversial subject to talk about. Who knows I may lose some readers by offending them with the truth as Paul did in Galatians 4:16. But like Paul, I still want to speak the truth on my website, because this is what is needed at this critical time in America. Can a person be a Christian, be saved, be born-again, go to heaven and still ignore the truth, the Bible and the God of the Bible doing whatever they like? Whoops I thought this subject was about being a Democrat? Yes, you are right the main subject is about people claiming to be a Democrat and a Christian and that goes with my preceding statement precisely. Isn’t choosing to be called a Democrat a human freewill choice of the man or woman? Am I saying being a Democrat is someone that is ignorant of the Bible? Well you are going to have to read the entire lesson and decide for yourself. Let me give you my opening scripture verse for this subject:
Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
God declares that His children are led by His Spirit! Are you His child? Not if you are not being led by the Spirit of God you are not! If you claim to be a saved child of God you better learn how to be led by the Spirit of God very fast. Nowhere in this verse or in any other verse will God contradict this truth! This verse strongly implies that those that are not led by the Spirit of God are not the children of God. The Spirit of God is never going to lead you into sin. The Spirit of God is never going to lead you to violate the Word of God. The Spirit of God will never lead you into hell. The Spirit of God will only say things to you that agree with the Written Holy Word of God. If you do not understand this you are free to call yourself a Democrat and choose to make God a liar. So the question remains, will the Spirit of God ever lead a person to be a Democrat? Not if it violates the Word of God. You better find out if being a Democrat is either in agreement or discourse with the Word of God and then decide personally which path you want to follow in.
First, I strongly believe that there are no perfect people in the world; Republican, Democrat, Independent or Christian. However, does that fact mean that that every Christian should not strive for perfection? I seriously do not believe that is the case. Perfection should be the goal of every Christian in order to conform to the image of Christ Jesus’ example. If you do not want to be like Christ you are definitely reading the wrong website. Can you find a scripture in the Bible that says that we are free to ignore what God says in His Word and still be saved? Are we saved independently from the Word of God? I have not found any verses that say we can be saved or remain saved apart from the Bible. I have found some verses that appear to say the opposite is true. Jesus was speaking in the Gospels and was quoted to say the following statement that should be strongly considered if you want to call yourself a follower of Christ:
Luk 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
Who was the Lord Jesus talking to? Notice that this statement was not made to anyone that is not a Christian or at the least thought they were a Christian. No one is going to call Jesus Lord if they do not believe that Jesus saved them. Did you notice that? People came to Jesus saying “Lord, Lord!” and they did this with the forethought He was their Lord. You see according to the Bible, in order to be saved, an individual must believe that God has raised Jesus from the dead and then must also confess Jesus to be their “Lord” with their mouth (Rom 10:9-10). Therefore, Jesus makes this statement but, only to people that have called Him their Lord. No unsaved person has done this nor can they. What significance does the Lord Jesus place upon His spoken word in this statement directed at Christians? Is the Lord Jesus a casual, unconcerned or non-caring speaker of random unimportant words like people are? Do you think that it matters to God if you actually do anything that He says or not? Is God simply speaking words to hear the sound? I believe that you can clearly see in this verse that Jesus strongly implies that it matters a great deal what you do in this life concerning what God has spoken.
2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
What has God spoken? This verse informs us that God spoke the words of the Bible and that every one of them is here for the purpose of righteousness. The Greek word translated as “inspiration of God” literally means “God Breathed”. If God’s breath produced them they came from the Spirit of God and these are the Words that you are directed to follow by Jesus own admission. Why call me Lord, Lord and do not what I say in my written Holy Book of Words?
Whose responsibility is it to get you to do what God says? Who is going to make you read and learn what is written in the Bible? Is it not your choice what you do every day? Seriously pay attention to what the Bible is saying to you, learn it and begin to follow God’s instructions. It will matter more on judgment day than you can possibly think at this time. Let’s get another witness of the truth spoken from God about what you need to do:
Jas 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
God speaking through the apostle James says directly to the church in a letter, that they need to do the Word of God and not just hear it only or they will deceive themself. That is an amazing statement. Self-deceived people are abundantly found in the church today. These are people that go to church but still vote for a Democrat. Of course I understand that many churches are not teaching the Bible and that is even a greater problem. God says very clearly “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). Not being taught the actual Word of God will cause people to be deceived equally. I believe that it is abundantly clear that the God of the Bible was warning Christians that we better learn what He has said and then do what He has said or we will be destroyed. Let’s then figure out what God says in the Bible and then see if any of this Godly information disagrees with Christians being a modern Democrat.
Today I’m going to give you at least 4 sound Bible reasons why you cannot be both a Democrat and a Christian. You are free to disagree with me, but I would suggest that you do not disagree with God and His Word. What I will say today are not my words but His.
#1 THE MAJORITY OF THE DEMOCRATS AT THE DNC CURSED GOD
Anyone can clearly observe the Democratic official platform. The Democratic National Convention (DNC) was held here in Charlotte NC and I heard about this event for months before it happened and every day that it was here it dominated the news. Anyone can easily verify what I am about to say by searching the internet to find the DNC position. There are documents, videos, news reports and other evidence to the truth if you are unaware of what I am about to tell you. First, consider at the DNC that Democrats removed the mention of “God” completely from their official position platform. They further removed all mention of Israel and Jerusalem as their capital. Both of these should have been clear warning signs to those that call themselves Christians and Democrats. If you watched the DNC on TV you would have seen one man stand up and attempt to put God and Jerusalem back into the Democratic platform and he was required by rule to get a majority of the delegates to raise their voice and vote “Yes” in order to pass this position. He called for the vote once, twice and even three times and each time the NO’s clearly won the voice level vote. At the end of the third time he simply decided on his own that the “YES” votes won and that ended the voting session. Many of the delegates in the audience quickly booed the decision and that is a major problem with being a Democrat. How can you as a Christian associate with any people that are so far apart from the truth? I do not know how you can, based upon what God says to do in His word:
Pro 14:27 The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
Did the great majority of the delegates representing the U.S. Democratic Party from every state have any fear of God? If you believe that you can boo God and be a Christian you are a fool! If you think you can stand with people that boo God and still be a Christian you are still a fool. To “fear” God is a Hebrew word that means a human position of humility giving God great honor and respect as He clearly deserves. What kind of respect is it for Democrats to say to God we don’t want you God mentioned in our platform anymore? Wow, I do not even know how to begin to justify someone saying I’m a Christian and still calling themselves a Democrat. What did God say in this verse in Proverbs? Did He not just say if you fear me you are on the path to life and if you do not fear me you are headed on the path towards death? You better think a long time about what is being said here. Let’s look at another verse that applies to this situation of the DNC vote. Here we had a man that must have thought he was a Christian who wanted God put back into the platform and the majority of his fellow delegates blasted him down and said “NO”. What does the God of the Bible say about this?
2Co 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
Can you read? To be yoked to something is to be joined with them. To be joined means to be united in purpose, plans and action. To be yoked to anything is a clear personal choice unless you are their slave? Are you the slave to other Democrats or the DNC? If you are not their slave then you had a choice to be there and to call yourself one of them. Consider the legal ramification of being present at the DNC? If someone in the car that you are riding in commits a crime the legal system considers you an accessory even if you knew nothing about what was going to happen. The guilt by association is a very important topic in the court of heaven. Because you were voluntarily present at the conference you have become guilty of cursing the God of the Bible even if you did not commit the act. Just because you are a registered Democrat you are further guilty by association with the group. Now, shift to what it means to be unequally yoked as this statement is declaring. I take this to mean you are out-numbered. It is like a balance scale with you on one side and the rest of the God cursing people on the other side. If they have tipped the scale in their favor then God says you better not be linked with them.
This is a major problem again from the scriptural standpoint of being called a Democrat. To be in an organization that does not even desire to have any relationship with God is more than an awkward situation for you. This man that took the vote should have shook off the dust from his feet and walked away from the cursers instead of doing what he did and continuing to be one of them. Look at what Jesus said to His disciples:
Mat 10:14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
Does this not still apply to us today? Are you not a disciple of Christ? I know I am! Of course this applies to you and I. If we go and tell someone about Jesus and they reject it, Jesus said that we can walk away free in conscious that we did our job. I feel like this would have made a much stronger statement than pretending that the “YES” vote won and add God back into the platform. How long do you think that the DNC will keep God in? Do you think that God will survive another vote? I personally do not believe He will. God and the Bible is being pushed out of the Democratic platform, it is just a matter of time before it happens.
The term “yoked” is a position of servitude whether you accept it or not. If you desire to be a servant accessory of a people with a position that curses God then you are not a wise man or woman. Take note with what these verses just said. What fellowship does a righteous man have with an unrighteous man? What communion does the light of God have with the darkness of Satan? I know a lot of people do not understand the differences between what is being stated in 2 Corinthians 6:14 so they believe it is permissible to be labeled a Democrat. That is exactly why I am writing and teaching this message today.
#2 OBAMA AND THE DNC EMBRACED HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE
Let’s consider point number two that was added to the official Democratic platform this year by Obama’s sudden change of position from the last election position. In the last election Obama was clearly asked about gay marriage and he clearly stated that marriage should be between a man and a woman. Now suddenly, the DNC and Obama openly embraced and joined themselves to the godless gay agenda by adding a gay marriage stance legitimizing the marriage between two men or two women as being normal and acceptable. In doing this they have snubbed the Bible and the God of the Bible and they have departed to establish a new independent truth separate from both. Here is the primary problem with the gay agenda; you cannot find it as a valid doctrine in the Bible anywhere. In fact if you study the subject closely you will find a lot written about it in the Bible that says it is an abomination to God when people live this way (Lev 18:22). I know that was an Old Testament verse reference and people are so quick to say that does not apply in the modern world. Let me quickly show you a N.T. verse that is also equally very clear:
1Co 6:9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, (NASB)
God tells the church plainly in this text that homosexuals will never enter into the kingdom of God. If people cannot be gay and be saved, what makes you think that you can be a Democrat supporting gays and the gay agenda and be saved either? Perhaps you need a new perspective to the importance of being in agreement with God. What is agreement? Agreement occurs when two people make a pact to walk in harmony. Disagreement is the antithesis and this simply occurs when two people are in opposite sides of any discussion. If you look up possible synonyms for the term “agreement” you will find one term “covenant” is present. That truth of covenant raises a new perspective and asks “Are you in covenant agreement with God?” or “Are you in covenant agreement with homosexuality?”. Technically speaking if you are not in covenant agreement with God then you are not saved. If yes, then God says you better agree with Him and what He says:
Amo 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
You are being forced to make a choice today by reading the truth of God. If you read what God says and still choose to be a Democrat and support Democrats and the DNC platform then you are not walking in agreement with God but with your godless political party. That is an extremely poor choice in life to make yet people do it every day. What God has just clearly stated is that you better agree with what He has spoken or you will not be walking with God.
People who do not make an effort to know what the Bible says are those that have chosen to ignore God’s Word. Any non-decision to seek the truth is a conscious decision for ignorance of the truth. Ignorant people will find themselves apart from God based upon what Jesus said to you at the beginning of this lesson. You are not going to be able to call Jesus your Lord and then ignore what He has said about the subjects like homosexuality. The two positions are mutually exclusive and incompatible. If you do not know what the Bible says on the subject of homosexuality you need to find out very quickly. No, the word is not officially found in the KJV Bible, but that does not mean that God does not give you what He thinks on the subject very clearly using other words. I have a Bible lesson series on the subject called “What does God think about Homosexuality”. If after you read this lesson series and choose to still be a Democrat then your blood is not on my hands any longer.
#3 OBAMA AND THE DNC KILL INNOCENT HUMAN BABIES
The discussion of abortion is a modern controversial subject that Democrats like to dance around by speaking about it using irrelevant oxymoronic terms like “Women’s Rights” or “Planned Parenthood” and others that twist the reality of child homicide into something legitimate sounding. They have even gone so far as to call the unborn baby a “fetus” and not a human child even though that is clearly a lie. The child in the womb is a new complete being after the egg is fertilized. All of the future DNA of the complete human being is present at conception. Cells continue to grow in the womb and develop but this same process occurs after birth also. No human is born a completed mature work. Therefore, the process before birth continues after birth and finally the child becomes an adult. The baby developing in the internal water realm is no different than the external baby continuing to develop in the air realm. If after birth the same attitude of reckless disregard is given as to the unborn life of the water realm baby and care was removed from them the child would not live in the external air realm either. Developing cells that grow is the definition for life. If a scientist found cells like this on Mars they would take extreme measures to preserve them. Why then have ignorant deceived humans chosen not to value this life before birth the same as after birth? Nothing was added or taken away from the process other than the taking of the baby’s life. Things have gotten so bad in this area that many abortion procedures done by doctors today are to babies that could easily live outside of the womb with any proper modern care. These procedures are called partial birth abortions and the baby is partly birthed and then deliberately killed before they can take a breath. That is a totally insane ungodly behavior for any person to agree with but Democrats like Obama vote for it constantly to continue.
Today the determining factor for whether any baby lives or dies has been given into the hands of the woman carrying the baby. That right there is another ignorant presupposition of the truth. Who died and made this woman a god who decides who lives and dies? Did the woman get pregnant by herself? Here is where creative deceived people introduce a new argument of justification for the existence of abortions. They say “what about incest and rape”. They then use these minority cases to justify the existence of every abortion regardless if the woman consented to the sex or not. God states in Genesis 2 that the two shall become one and this is a law of God’s created design. Just because Satan has perverted it by enticing men to rape does not mean the whole result is evil. One evil act never justifies another evil act. The formed baby in the womb was not a participant in the evil so why is another evil taken out on them? That just does not make logical or Biblical sense. I recall no Bible verses that say if a man commits evil we need to kill an innocent child for retribution.
Take for example the young lady that had been kidnapped as a child by an evil man and forced to live with him for years and years until she finally escaped. She was repeatedly raped and even got pregnant and had a child. This child was still important and loved by God regardless of how it was conceived. After the woman escaped the captor went to jail but she and her baby went home. Perhaps in this case you believe we should kill the baby immediately after saving it from captivity? What then is the difference between now and before in the womb? Were they not both created through evil? Surely this justifies us killing born healthy babies if they are conceived by evil acts. If we kill evilly conceived babies after birth what stops any baby from being killed if they cry too much, are the wrong sex or whatever. When is it murder and when is it allowable or permitted? I do not see any lines that should ever be crossed personally.
When a woman determines that she does not desire to carry the baby to term, she chooses to commit murder and she terminates the life that God had placed inside of her by going to a clinic or by taking a pill these days. You may quickly respond and ask who did you say put the life in her? According to the Bible God says He put the life of the child inside of the woman. Here is a verse that is about abortion but does not directly name the term:
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.
You can clearly see that God reveals that what the Democrats and liberals call the “fetus” in the woman was already known by God. God clearly says “I formed you there inside of your mother”. God also clearly says that I called you to be a prophet before you were ever born into this world. What if Jeremiah’s mother chose to have an abortion today? Would the prophet have been born? Would God have stopped her from being so foolish? I seriously do not understand why people cannot see that God will not override a woman’s will to murder her own child. The woman’s body is the woman’s body but the child in her was not placed there by the woman so she has no right to remove it. The child’s body is never a part of the woman’s body. The child’s body is an independent new being awaiting arrival into this world.
In making these uninformed decisions the woman has engaged accomplices that help her. The doctor is the instrument of murder that she uses to kill the life in the baby and I find that fact incredibly ironic. The doctor takes a Hippocratic oath to save life and instead for money has chosen to ignore that oath and kill their own kind because an activist judge somewhere said it was a legal act to perform. Everyone involved in this act is a willing guilty participant or accessory and they are all ignoring God, the truth and the Bible in making this decision or even allowing this decision to be made. That is just stupid if you ask me, but stupid is as stupid does.
In the United States alone there have been millions of abortions performed since it was legalized by a minority. That is an awful lot of blood that is on the hands of women, doctors, judges, voters and politicians. WHAT did I just say? I said the blood of the murdered babies will be held on the account of all those that voted to allow this practice to continue. If you do not think so, I would not want to be you on judgment day. I did not do a complete teaching on this subject and I have other lessons that will expand it in more detail. If you go and read “What does God think about Abortion” it will address more Bible verses that teach us about this very important subject.
#4 OBAMA IS AN OPEN LIAR AND DECEIVER
What is the definition of a liar? When a man says one thing and then does something else does that make him a liar? In my Bible I believe that is a very good definition for a liar. What is the definition of a deceiver? A very good definition of a deceiver is anyone that causes someone else to believe what is not true. One good synonym for a deceiver is a “con artist”. A “con artist” is anyone that tells you what you want to hear in order to get what they want from you. A “con man” uses words to entice human behavior for their own personal gain. Technically speaking a liar is a deceiver and a deceiver is a liar by definition. Let me show you a verse that Jesus spoke to us all and you then tell me what it says on these subjects:
Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
So tell me what your God just said? Is God a liar? I strongly believe that God is not a liar and in this statement I believe it to be an accurate and literal announcement of truth. If after reading this verse you still believe that it is permissible to be an abortionist murderer or a liar then I think that you are already deceived into believing a lie. There is a missing message in many churches today called “Holiness”. This old holiness message was previously taught strongly by many preachers but it is widely ignored in the modern Grace dominated church. Because people believe that being holy is no longer a factor or a requirement for being a Christian they can justify being a Democrat and believe a man like Obama when he stood up in 2007 and said “I’m a Christian”. Nothing done by Obama in the last four years has proven that statement true. In fact his actions have proven the opposite. Jesus very clearly taught us that we will know them by their fruits (Mat 7:16). Jesus was speaking spiritually but said this spiritual fruit would be displayed externally in this natural realm in order for us to observe it and even possess the ability to judge it. If you do not know what the fruits of the Spirit are perhaps you need to go study the subject closely because Obama has none of these that I can observe. Let’s establish if Christians need holiness:
Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
1Pe 1:15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
1Pe 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
Both Peter and Paul were led by the Spirit of God to teach on the subject holiness. Essentially God declared Himself to be Holy and commands that we are also to be the same Holy type. This gets back to the goal of perfection. If you are not striving to be perfect like God then you have already admitted defeat. The Bible clearly says that God is a Holy God!. The Bible also says that God does not lie (Heb 6:18). Therefore anyone intentionally lying is not of God and will have their part in the lake of fire as Jesus clearly says. I could spend a lot of time listing every lie publically spoken by Obama but that is a waste of my time and yours. Other websites have done a good job at documenting many of these, just go and search the web and you will find more statements than you care to hear about. If you have time to watch a video on YouTube I would suggest that you go watch these examples of lies spoken by Obama. This video is by far not a complete list. For example, Obama declared marriage to be between a man and a woman before being elected in 2008 but yet he has done everything in his power to reverse that even now making the clear position statement that marriage is beyond God’s definition. Make sure you understand the definition again for a liar. A liar is someone that says he will do one thing and then does something else. I will expand the definition of a liar to be anyone that speaks anything that is not the Truth of God and that is a much broader definition. Here is the video of lies, go check it out for a starter course:
VOTING WARNING EXAMPLES FOUND IN THE BIBLE
Exo 32:1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
The concept of voting is found in the Bible if you actually look for it. The word vote does not need to appear for the message to be revealed. For example here in this story we have a nation of people in a desperate state of circumstances much like the United States today. Their Godly leader Moses has left them, they think and now we see them making a cry for a change. You do realize that voting is nothing but you asking for a desired outcome? Do you remember what these people have been through? They had just been delivered by God from a very oppressive harsh nation and a people that oppressed them greatly. The power of God was displayed over and over until Pharaoh finally bowed to the overwhelming display of God. The Israelites all had witnessed this deliverance but now in the wilderness when things were again tough they voted for change in gods and leaders. Was this the right decision? Was this the right choice? If you continue to read down in the chapter you will find that it clearly was not!
Here is my point for this entire lesson. Can you vote against God and expect a good outcome? Whenever the Democrats voted to throw God out of their platform were they not repeating the historic act that was given to us by God to learn from? Do you not understand what God says here about Israel? God tells us in the New Testament that these things were written as examples but not examples to follow but for examples not to follow (1 Cor 10:11). When a nation departs from God, the Bible and His ways they have also abandoned His hand of protection, His blessings and His favor. When the people vote against God they open the door for judgment to follow. Seriously do you feel the need to be judged? Continue to vote against God and His Word and you will be. Stop and read this next Bible example of a popular vote recorded in the Bible for us to learn from:
Mat 27:17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?
Mat 27:18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
Mat 27:19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.
Mat 27:20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
Mat 27:21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
Mat 27:22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
Mat 27:23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
If you read this story with your spiritual eyes wide open, you will see another popular vote being manipulated by the elders of Israel and their priests. Pilate clearly saw that it was because of envy that they were moved to do this thing to Jesus so he after being warned by his wife created a choice to vote on between two men. One man Jesus was entirely good and one man named Barabbas was entirely evil. Who do you think these men represent in our election? Well, let me ask you who is in favor of murdering babies and allowing gays to marry? Both of these are evil in the eyes of God. Well Barabbas was elected to live and Jesus was condemned to die and this was the outcome of a popular vote of the people. What does God say about this in the Bible? You probably don’t know this either but this is God’s opinion of that kind of vote and voters:
Isa 5:20 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!
Wow, I do not understand how anyone can be a Democrat today knowing what I know from the Bible. God warns people if they call evil as good and good as evil that there are consequences for these types of votes. If America elects this evil Obama president again, there will be consequences and heaven help us all. If you read down in this chapter you will find what God says will happen:
Isa 5:24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
These curses are because the people have abandoned the God of Israel and His Holy Word. Major parts of the U.S. have just gone through a long drought that left the farmer’s crops and ranch industries decimated. Do you think this is a chance accidental happenstance? When a nation kills millions of babies and promotes gay life styles as the new normal I believe this opens the door for these types of events to occur. Let’s end this Bible lesson with the conclusion of the Jesus vs. Barabbas vote:
Mat 27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
Mat 27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
Pilate washes his hands of the matter and says this man’s blood is not on me. The people of Israel declare let his murder and blood be upon us and our children. In their minds they totally believed they were doing something good but their actions were not based upon any common sense or the truth of God. Pilate could see it, do you see it? I completely understand that God’s purpose was for Him to come to the earth and die. I totally agree that God accomplished exactly His plan to the very detail. However, if you believe that God manipulated the people and forced them to kill Him you are one of those confused people that believe God is a giant puppet master controller of our every move and that people lack any ability of choice. God can use human nature without causing it to happen. God knew what would happen before it happened so this is foreknowledge and not forced manipulation. Unsaved people today have not really changed much have they? They are still calling good evil and evil good. Still killing good babies and letting murders walk free. What was the outcome of this vote for Israel? Did you realize that there was a consequence for their actions?
If you did not know it Israel was completely destroyed and leveled shortly after this event in history. In the year 70 AD the entire city was decimated. The natural nation of Israel ceased to exist for almost 1900 years after this. The people of Israel were scattered broadly throughout the world and were continually oppressed and persecuted. The curse that they placed upon themselves followed them from generation to generation. It was not until the near extermination of the entire Jewish race under Hitler that prophecy began to come back into focus for this natural nation of people. Do you think that rejecting the Word of God had anything to do with what happened to them in history? Are there any parallels to what happened to the nation of Israel and what is happening here in the United States today? I believe very strongly that there are many direct parallels and if we do not change quickly and embrace God and His Word as a nation again we will experience the same outcome.
So can you be a Christian and still vote for evil? Can you be saved and ignore the Bible? Can you vote against God and still be for God? Seriously if you do not understand that this is not possible then your blood is not on my hands as I have already stated. No not everything a Democrat does is evil and that is not my point here at all. What you need to see is that it only takes a little bit of poison to kill an animal if it is mixed with a lot of good desirable food. If Democrats were entirely evil people there would be no contest in this election, no one would vote for them. But, since they lace their good deeds with poisonous intentions people are deceived in eating it all. I have warned you, and I have sounded the alarm. I am just one man on the wall willing to take the risk to blow an alarm sound of warning to the people of this nation. You can do whatever you like going forward but the consequences will come for your vote for evil sooner than you realize. This was the message that the Holy Spirit placed on my heart and I was just the messenger. I pray that your eyes were opened and that I saved at least one person from deception. If only one person was helped then it was worth all of my time and effort. God bless and we will get back to the other Bible subjects as the Lord leads.
What Does God Think of Homosexuality? Pt 2 Searching for the Modern God for the Modern Family in the Modern World?
(Ver 1.2) This is Part 2 of a series of lessons about “What does God think about the subject of Homosexuality”. This will be a little bit different today than my usual Bible lessons, but certainly not less controversial in any degree. I am committed to tell the truth regardless of what it costs me, so if I lose readers today, I’m sorry, but I believe that someone has to tell you the truth. You might ask, why do I write so much about this subject of homosexuality and not any other sin? The primary reason that I write so much about it is because it is the only sin that I know of that is being preached and taught to be a normal reality of the truth and an acceptable alternative Christian lifestyle. Homosexuality is the only sinful habit that is portrayed on TV, in movies, on the internet and in magazines to be normal. You never see a murderer on TV as being someone who is normal. It is only the Homosexual Community that has organized themselves into groups that promotes their agendas and their lifestyles as a minority group equivalent to the African American, Asian or Hispanic population of our country. It is only the Homosexual community that is exalting their sin to be equivalent to the color of someone’s skin. It is only the homosexual community that has support groups to help people to be and stay gay. Alcoholics have AA which is a group to help them get free from alcohol. But, now the Gay community wants everyone to believe this is just who we are and we can’t change. If only the convicted rapists and child molesters in our country could learn how successful this is working for the Gay Community, I’m sure in the future we will see another organized sinful group come forward promoting themselves to everyone that this is just how I am and how God created me so you will just need to accept me like I am. After all I have rights. So this is why I will preach against homosexuality by proclaiming the truth of the Word of God and why I do not talk about other sins to this level. As soon as murderers and rapists start to organize I’ll preach against them next. It might shock you that I compare homosexuality to murder and rape, but according to the word of God sin is sin no matter what sin you are guilty of. You will also note that God gave gay sinners in Sodom and Gomorrah the death penalty for their lifestyles so that is another good reason to lump them together. You should read the law of God in Deuteronomy and Leviticus and find out what were death penalty acts in the eyes of God. You might be surprised at what you find there. Maybe I will show you some of these scriptures later in this lesson. Therefore, according to God and the Bible I can lump your every sin in the same general wrong behavior category. If you feel slighted and want to organize a movement for your sin to be accepted, I’ll give you the same level of attention as I do to homosexuality. The louder the Gay Agenda gets, the louder I’ll get with the truth so that someone will hopefully hear it. So this is Part 2 and if you did not read “Part 1” you should go and start there.
I can look around in movies, on TV and on the internet and see that there is something that has been building that is still very disturbing to me. It is nothing new, but it is a growing threat of deception to our world that we live in. So I will talk about it and see what the Bible says, to hopefully change someone’s perspective on reality. Here in America there is a popular award winning TV show that is called “Modern Family”. It is humorous to me that they call it “modern” when it is actually not a new or modern situation at all. The Bible tells us that there is nothing new under the sun (Ecc 1:9), so obviously anything they are claiming to be modern has already happened within our human history but they want to ignore this fact. There is a famous quotation that states “Those that ignore the past are condemned to repeat it”. This TV show is a basic redefinition of the classic Bible and God family which consists of a husband and a wife using humor to preach their Gay message of acceptance and tolerance. Too many times modern people think that if you make sin funny then it is possible to say and do anything and we will buy into it. If you watch this show and laugh at their jokes then you have already bought into their message of the existence of a normal sin. Notice the picture that I included from the cast of this TV show. Notice how they mix subtly the sin with the normal and dress them all alike in white portraying the message of normal and purity. They have preached a deceived gospel that is designed to confuse people into acceptance.
I do not watch this show and the only reason that I know about it is from watching the morning news type programs that report about them and interview their actors or just talk about them. In this morning’s show they interviewed some “modern families” that they discovered in America. One modern family was a household that consisted of two women who now had two young sons. This family had a sperm donor who was also a gay man in his own modern relationship in order to even have these children. I do not know or understand that the fact that they had to go to an outside party to produce a child was a problem to them? In interviewing one of the children, he told us that this family was just like every other family and that the house was built around love. Of course he had two moms and when he called for mom, one would answer and he would have to say no, my other mom. His dad (sperm donor) was not living in his house but would spend time with them on the weekends and none of this mattered to this child. Obviously to him and his narrow perspective this was a normal family like everyone else. So it is very clear to me that this family is deceived and highly confused to what the definition of normal is and what God thinks about this type of arrangement. You see if you are raised in an abnormal house and you do not know the difference to what normal is then to your perception of reality and your circumstances become normal to you. What if you were Tarzan, raised in the jungle by a family of apes, would you not think that your ape family was totally normal? All that I can see is that if they have concluded that their family is no different than any other family in America, then Christians have done a very poor job of revealing God to the rest of the world to show what normal really is. This TV show called Modern Family has won acclaim and awards and has a major following in America. Forty years ago this show would not have even made it on TV, but today we have become so much more progressive (degenerate, perverted, debased, deviant, depraved, immoral) in our views of what is allowable and permissible that it is no wonder that this show is on TV. This is because we live in a modern world and everything is different now, right? This is certainly what people want you to think anyway, but technically speaking there is nothing that is different today than what it was four or five thousand years ago. Of course we have technology, cell phones, cars and airplanes, sperm donors, en-vitro and all of these types of things that are new, but the people that are using them are the exact same kind of people who lived thousands of years ago. Let me show you what God wrote a long time ago:
Ecc 1:9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
Are you under the sun? Is this talking about you? According to the Bible and what it teaches us there is absolutely nothing that exists today that has not already happened yesterday. People want to look at only external things and ignore people, their thoughts, emotions, intentions, desires, lusts and the other hidden things of the heart and say today we have different more modern challenges facing us. No you see we still struggle with the exact same challenges as Solomon who wrote this verse in the Bible thousands of years ago. We envy each other, we become jealous of each other and we still desire so many things that are only for our own individual purpose. Do people still rob each other, kill each other and lie to each other? Exactly what is different today than back then? Can you really come up with any new or modern emotions, motivations or thoughts that anyone can think today? Oh, sure you couldn’t text your message back then and you couldn’t blog about your thoughts back then, but what is different other than that? Are not the messages still the same? How you do something is not as important as what you are doing and why. People today look at homosexuality as being a major change to the modern family. People think that this is some new physical attraction that has never existed before. It is funny how God wrote about homosexual men in Genesis the first book of the Bible and tells us how He destroyed this city called Sodom because of their immoral lifestyle. If God writes about homosexuality in the first book of the Bible, this is proof that this is not something new just for today. Go read the Genesis 19 account of the city of Sodom and see the story of how Lot and his wife and were a normal family who lived in a modern city of progressive homosexuals and then see that this is exactly what we are seeing on the news today. The only thing that we are not seeing today that did happen then is God rained down fire and brimstone to kill them all and I’m sure that this is coming in the near future after God takes me out of here like he took Lot’s family. There is truly nothing new under the sun.
People like to confuse and combine God’s love and forgiveness with God’s acceptance. After all, the Bible says “God so loved the world that He gave…” (John 3:16). So people have concluded in error that since God loves them how they are right now (which is true) that God also accepts them as they are right now (which is not true) and there is no growth process or changes to ever make in their lives. However, you cannot find that in any verse in the Bible. God loves you yes, but God loved you so much that He gave, so that you could change to love Him back. You cannot ignore parts of the Bible you do not like to accept only the parts that you do like. The Bible informs us that God is a Holy God and that must be balanced corretnly with a Loving God theology equally. There is a central theological theme not found in many modern churches very often and this is the concept of repentance that goes with the concepts of God’s love and forgiveness. I doubt very seriously if any modern gay church preaches about repentance. They must tear these pages out of their Bibles in order not to offend anyone. Everyone in the modern church wants to be forgiven, saved and not go to hell, but it seems that not very many actually want to repent and change to do it. To be repentative is a divine concept that originates from you “being sorry” for your past. Sorrow begins by recognizing what you were doing was wrong and then turning your boat around to make a new course of change and correction for your life. As long as you are happy with your sin, you are not able to be repentant. If I did not love you I would not try to tell you the truth. I would not care and I would be like everyone else in the world. It is only because I love that I write you a letter of truth to try to help you.
You see I got a long comment from a man that called himself a gay Christian and today is my response to his ignorant comment. He is obviously confused and deceived into thinking he is a Christian and that God has saved him. However, he told me very plainly that he had no intention of ever changing. He was happy as a gay man and that this is just how God made him. You see, he told me that he had these thoughts and feelings since he was just six years old and therefore he concluded this was just who he was. This is a clear demonstration of how easy it is for the devil to deceive people in the world. Because he did not understand that he was a spirit living in a body and how spiritual things work and how Satan can easily bring abnormal thoughts and feelings to natural humans from the supernatural realm, he had just learned to accept them as normal reflections of who he thought he was. He allowed his abnormal thoughts and feelings dictate and define who he was, rather than attempting to learn the TRUTH from the Words of the Creator God who made him to be a man. What people do not realize is that Satan can give you evil thoughts even from a young age and tell you whatever you want to hear. Satan can tell you that you are just a monkey. A man named Darwin believed this for a while and wrote a book about it; maybe you read his ignorant book also. Why is this gay man not a Christian? There is no repentance present; no sorrow and no desire to change. Jesus said “If you love me you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15). Obviously my gay commenter does not love Jesus or he would not ignore God’s commandments. Do you know what the commandments of God are? The commandments of God say some very direct things about this subject that leaves no room for interpretation. No the words homosexual and homosexuality are not in the Bible. Maybe you think you have searched your Bible and God is silent about this issue, or it could be that you just did not know what to look for. Here is one of the commandments of God that you need to know:
Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
According to God’s Law, this verse says that homosexuality was a capital offense in Israel. God gave these words to Moses for the people to learn what is acceptable and what an abomination in the eyes of God is. This verse says that when a man has sex with another man in a manner designed for a woman that it is disgusting in His eyes. So why do you not know how to read or see the truth presented right in front of you? It is simply because you are not interested in seeing the truth. If find the truth is not a priority in your life there will be no truth found. Today too many people would rather live their lives of lies rather than to change to know the truth. Let me give you another witness of what the Bible actually says:
Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
This says the same thing, but the Bible says let every word of truth be established in the mouths of two or three witnesses so I wanted to give you another Bible verse that speaks of males having sex with other males like they were females. God still says it is a disgusting human act. Let me give you another verse that applies to this subject today:
Deu 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
The Bible says some pretty shocking things. God pulls no punches nor does he ignore any sin. God is smarter than you obviously think. God says that if a man dresses like a woman or a woman dresses like a man, it is an abomination to God. I see this everyday on TV and in movies. Cross dressing fantasies are a normal type of behavior in the world today. We have movies like “Tootsie” and others that have popularized this behavior as being normal. You can walk down the street and see someone and think, is that a woman until you get up close to them and see that they are just a man dressed like a woman. This is basic homosexual behavior and they view it as normal. If you have ever seen a gay pride parade you will know what I am talking about. If you have ever seen a gay convention or assembly it is easy to spot this behavior. Are not these the commandments from God that Jesus said if you love me you will do my commandments? If you do not think so you are more than confused you are deceived, and I cannot help you. Do you suddenly think that God has changed to delete these words from the Bible or that they do not suddenly apply to the modern world? Maybe you think that God has changed His Book of Commandments to the a modern Book of Suggestions. Has God updated His theology to include a modern interpretation of this very old information? This is what my gay commenter is hoping for. There are many who try to teach the O..T. law is not valid anymore but I disagree with that wrong assessment. Sodom and Gomorrah were both destroyed before the law of Moses was even given. You can clearly see that if God destroyed these cities for their immoral acts of homosexuality and that this must still cause problems in the modern world. Read this next verse in the N.T. very carefully:
Jud 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
What does God still say about Sodom and Gomorrah here in the book of Jude in the New Testament? God says that these were examples of men going after strange flesh who are now in the flames of eternal fire. Do you think that they are happy in hell right now? Do you think they are still having a party in hell right now, having sex with each other? If you do you do not understand that the spirits of men and women in hell do not have physical sex anymore. Plus the torment of hell is so great that there would be no way that you could have any pleasure even if you wanted it.
According to Malachi 3:6, God says “I am the Lord and change not”. Then in James 1:17 it says “There is no variableness or shadow of turning” with God. So if you are looking for a modern God to accept your modern sin lifestyle choices you are about to be greatly disappointed with your decisions that you have made. You have placed all of your faith in a made up temporary fantasy world rather than accepting the truth. Even if you were really gay and lived to be 99 years old, it would not matter billions of years from now if you are in hell. Eternity in hell is a never ending place of torment. You see if I did not love you I would not bother to tell you the truth. It is only because I love you that I care where you spend your eternity. So as long as there is a gay person standing up for equal rights, I will teach the truth. As long you say this is just who I am, I will tell you that you have no idea who you really are.
I challenge you to search your Bible for your definition of the modern family and see if you can find it. Then search your Bible for your definition of the modern God and see if you can find Him also. Sure God loves you and died for your sins just like he died for my sins. So I am definitely no better than you are. But, there is a difference between us, I repented and changed and you are happy with the way you are. Just because God loves you, does not mean that God will force salvation upon you. Sure God is powerful enough to do this if He wanted to, however it is just the love of God that restrains Him from doing this to give you a freewill choice. God will never use His force or power to make you change unless you ask Him to change you and that is totally different. You see I had another commenter on my website who spoke of coming out of homosexuality. So there is proof that this is possible in the world today if you look for it. If you are happy with your life today then you have allowed Satan to deceive you into a temporary state that will not last very long.
Heb 11:25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
Here is God’s reaction to the sin and lifestyle choices that you are making today. Here in this verse God informs us what causes people to get noticed by Him. Because Moses chose to be with the people of God He is included in the Bible as a hero of the faith. If Moses would have chosen to live sinful in Egypt for what God calls a season, God says that he would have lost out on his good eternal outcome. Sure sin has pleasure attached to it for a while. But, pleasure for a short while and torment for an eternity is a crazy choice to make. I am one of the ones that God says are His people and I have come to you with an old message of choice. You can still choose today to have your pleasures in Egypt over entering into Kingdom of God with the people of God, but your eventual outcome will be a very sad one. I’ll pray that you will make a higher choice to come out of Egypt.
(Ver 1.3) This is “Part 1” in a series of advanced Bible lessons on the subject of “What does God think of homosexuality”. This of course is a hot topic and one that is fiercely debated, even in churches. There are so many controversial subjects that people just want to ignore, because they do not want to offend anyone. I never recall Jesus avoiding any issues that were brought before Him but, I also do not recall Jesus ever directly addressing sin in any area of people’s personal lives. People need to understand what Jesus said in John 3:17. Jesus claimed that He was not sent into the world to condemn the world but through Him the world might be saved. This of course, people are very quick to point out, Jesus never said anything about homosexuality and I have even heard people try to accuse Jesus of acting like a homosexual. It is amazing how foolish people can become when they want to justify their erroneous ways and their sinful lifestyles. While Jesus rarely addressed sin, you will find that after He healed people, He would sometimes say, “now go and sin no more unless a worse thing come upon you” (John 5:14). To the woman caught in adultery Jesus said “go and sin no more” (John 8:11). So Jesus never said that sin was OK and acceptable. Jesus never justified sin, nor would He tolerate people doing everything they wanted to do. So it comes down to a question of the definition of what sin is and this varies tremendously from person to person. Some think their sin is better than someone else’s sin and thus they justify themselves to be righteous in their own eyes. The basic modern argument for homosexuality being forced down our throats is a statement that claims this is who we are. They claim that God created us this way. This is the only sin that I know of that makes these assertions. So that is why I am writing about homosexuality and not about adultry today. I have never heard someone caught in adultry say this is just who I am and you will have to accept me this way. Therefore, I am not here to discuss all types of sin today, I just want to focus in on what the Bible says about homosexuality and see if we can determine if God thinks this is a sin, based upon the Bible and not my opinion or yours.
While some people like to claim that Jesus never said anything about homosexuality they quickly forget that Jesus was God in the flesh and that He said plenty about the subject in many other parts of the Bible. While Jesus was walking the face of the earth in the flesh, you will notice that one of the only things that Jesus ever confronted was religious people who thought they knew more than He did and proclaim themselves to be better than everyone else. Self-righteousness still abounds today even in the church. We have church people protesting Homosexuals and Abortionists and in doing so, they proclaim themselves to be perfect. As a result Christians are portrayed on TV and in the news as the hate mongers. Christians are viewed as those who are hateful towards others and intolerant towards minorities. Is this what Jesus did? Didn’t Jesus tell the crowd of potential stone casters, “He that is without Sin, Cast the first stone”? I think you could legitimately change that to say, “To Him that is without Sin, Pick up your Signs and Posters and hold them up!”. It just doesn’t make much sense what people think is right to do, if you think about it. Christians should change and become more like Christ and less like those in the world. In Jesus’ lesson about fishing for men, you must conclude that you never try to clean a fish, until you first catch one. Too many people are trying to get clean fish first and then take them to God to be saved and this is not how it works.
What are Christians suppose to do? I believe that Christians should just tell the truth and that would be a great place to start. The truth is a very difficult thing to tell people sometimes, because it is not easily accepted by many who do not wish to hear it. The truth is often times rejected on purpose so as to deflect blame, shame or guilt away from their lives. While there are many who want to portray an openly gay life style with open pride today, there are equally as many who are ashamed of their ways. People do not like to tell about their childhood experiences, where a grown up abused them and did things to them that they should not have done. These are the areas of life that hurt people and cause emotional and psychological damage and people think that many times they are better left unsaid and swept under a rug somewhere. Because I do not know you, I cannot speak about you. I can only tell you about my personal experiences and you of course can believe them or not.
A male family member that I know of was molested as a child by an older male relative. I know this, because I was there. It was the middle of the night and this male relative tried to molest me too, but I was too big for him and I said leave me alone. Because I did not know what to do, I did nothing to stop him from molesting this other relative. As a result of this attack, this young male family member later turned to a homosexual life style. But, I know where it started and how it started and this was not how he was born. This is rarely talked about in the world, in the news media and on TV. That is unless it is committed by someone in the church. Then it is run up the flag pole like, look at these people who say they are Christians, they are just perverts who molest our children. Because people do not normally talk about these events in their young lives, most pretend that they never happen. What people do not understand, is many Gay men want sex with young boys and that is widely swept under the rug and never discussed. We can easily understand that being a pedophile is a sin, or at the least against the law. But we ignore the bigger problem, that there is a heart issue, a mind issue and an emotional issue that is not being addressed in the victims of these molesters.
As a teenage male growing up in America in the sexual revolution 70’s, I was targeted by older males. Satan also attempted to get me into this lifestyle. I was picked up and did not know what was happening before it happened. These guys were aware that I was under age and did not care. That is why they picked me to begin with. Being naive is both a blessing and a curse, you are kept from knowing what people really want, but when approached you are easily tricked into being somewhere you should not be. Because, I was young and naive, I was a candidate and an easy target for these predators. So how many Gays are talking about this kind of behavior openly, not any that I know of? I am very thankful to God that these creeps did not scar me for life or get me to change who I really am. I am also thankful to God for not allowing them to hurt me more than they did. People rarely talk about these kinds of things, and it is very difficult for me to even admit that I was there. I could have very easily been drawn into the deception of this wrong life style. I could have been deceived into believing that I was just like them. So I have given you my personal experiences with this issue. Gays would make sex with young males legal if they could get away with it. I would venture to say that most Gay men have been molested somewhere in their childhood and have been deceived into the lifestyle, but do not discuss it.
So the title of my blog is “What Does God Think about Homosexuality?” Just based upon what I have written, so far about my experiences what do you think that God thinks about what men do to children? Or even what women do to little girls? Do you think that it is OK, in the eyes of God? Is this how God created people to act? That of course is a very loaded set of questions. God loves everyone, but does not approve of everything that people do. It is not OK to do something’s, just because you are able to and you want to. There are many things in the world that are here, not because God created them for us, but because, man wanted them for their pleasure and self-indulgences. What does God think about “homosexuality”? Let’s look at what God says in the Bible and just see some of the examples of God’s thoughts toward the subject.
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Churches, who ordain gay ministers, must ignore vast parts of the Bible. Here is God speaking about women who are making a critical mistake. God calls it “vile affections”. These are women who have sex with women for their own selfish pleasure. God calls sex “natural”, but only between a man and his wife. The natural use of a woman is not to have sex with another woman. If you do not know how to read, you can obviously make up excuses and attempt to explain away what God says very plainly. The term “vile” means indignity, shame, reproach, dishonor and disgrace. Those are some pretty strong words for something that God does not look upon with favor. The term “affections” can mean “lusts”. I will talk about this word more as we look at the next verse in the chapter:
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Now it starts to become much more more obvious to what God is talking about. God is definitely saying that sex between a husband and his wife is natural. However, God says that sex between two males is a clear “error”. The term “unseemly” in this verse means “indecency” . What is indecency? We have heard the term used “indecency with a child”. That means that in the eyes of the law, you are doing something that you should not do to a little child. This can include touching them inappropriately to speaking suggestively to them, or whatever. “Indecency” in the eyes of God is what happens when a man has sex with a man. God calls it something that should not occur. It is an abuse of the specifically designed sexual reproduction principles established by God. You have heard of drug abusers and alcohol abusers, well God is calling men who have sex with other men sexual abusers. God is saying sex has a purpose and was designed in a certain way to be between a husband and wife and anything else is abuse of the design. People ignoring God’s moral standards have sought to establish their own definitions of morality. The term “error” in this verse means to be “deceived”. God is saying that men who have sex with men and women who have sex with women have been “deceived”. Who is the deceiver? Of course the deceiver is Satan. Satan has caused men and women’s minds to be tricked into believing a false reality of who they really are. If you know how to read and to look up the definitions of the words in the Strong’s Concordance you will see that I am telling you the truth.
So now let’s discuss what God says is the reason for this deception and how it works. The Bible says that these men “burned in their lust” one toward another. What does that mean? What does it mean to burn? What is lust? If you look up the word translated as “lust” in Strong’s it is very interesting. Lust means “excitement of the mind”. I have often times heard it said that the mind is the devil’s playground. This is how he is allowed to work to deceive people. Do you know that it is illegal for the devil to appear to you and try to trick you naturally? I guess I won’t go there today, but Satan uses people’s thoughts to entice them into doing things that they should never do. You know that men who molest children or just have sex with other men do not start out that way, they have done it hundreds of times in their minds before they ever act it out in the natural. Doing wrong things outwardly are all just manifestations of inward fantasies, projections and thoughts. The reality of acting out a “lust” is always the result of a previous repeated fantasy of someone’s imagination. What you continually think about, is what you will eventually do. Think wrong things, you will eventually do wrong things, this is how God designed the human mind to work. If you put the right things into your mind, you will get more positive things to come out of your mind into your actions. But, if you put Garbage into your mind, you will always get garbage out of it in what you do. Why do you think the Bible says for us to put forth an effort to “RENEW OUR MINDS”? (Rom 12:2) The renewal process of the mind means a renovation or the replacement of the old previous thoughts in your mind to think new and improved ones from God’s Word. You could call it a mind thought upgrade to think higher spiritual thoughts. By replacing the old carnal thoughts, with new spiritual thoughts we can eventually change what we do. People wonder why we have such problems in our schools and never place the blame on the fact that we have taken God and the Bible out of our schools and are now are reaping the results of producing spiritually ignorant children without morals and standards. Ok, I got off the subject, I was talking about homosexuality and how people become homosexuals and told you about your mind being the cause and then went into schools. Sorry about that. I started this paragraph speaking about lust and I need to get back on track..
Lust is a longing for, something that is highly desired to someone. Did you know if you do everything that your flesh longed for, you would be in really bad shape? Lust is something that is a normal human emotional state, but what you lust after is always the root cause of every problem. The verse in Romans was talking about the unnatural sex between people of the same sex as being a result of unnatural thoughts that were acted out. So why do some men lust for men and others do not? Why do some men lust after alcohol and some do not? The Bible says we are all carried away with different things, there are many different temptations in the world (James 1:14). For the most part, it came about from something that happened in their childhood, their parents could have been alcoholics and it was passed down. This is a factor that you should realize. The sins of the parents are often times passed to the children. Let’s change the focus and go back and see if Jesus ever said anything about homosexuality:
Mat 19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
Jesus asks a very basic question about creation and I wonder why Gay people do not see that He is talking to them. While some people say that Jesus never talked about homosexuality, I am about to prove them wrong. Jesus in effect is saying “Are you STUPID”, can’t you READ?” In the beginning did God create them MALE and MALE or FEMALE and FEMALE? Or did God create them Male and Female? Somehow, God must have changed His mind somewhere in the course of human history. I can only guess that this is that these homosexual proponents must think today! They obviously declare that God created me this way. I’m Gay because I was born Gay! The lies and the deception from Satan are very deep when it comes to this issue. People seem to think that God has changed somewhere during the last 6000 years, and the Bible clearly says that God never changes (Mal 3:6). So what do we do with Bible stories like the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen 19)? In this story two men show up at Lot’s house and the house is surrounded by the men of the city. These men demand for Lot to send the men out so that they can have sex with them. However, these men were angels and they strike the homosexuals blind and later destory the city. I guess we just ignore these stories and pretend that they are not in the Bible and let these people continue with their lie. We are just all suppose to get along and become more open and tolerant and just look the other way and pretend that it is not happening. After all God must have intended to created Adam and Steve, instead of Adam and Eve, He just made a mistake.
1Co 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
People can be exceedingly foolish, sometimes. They think you have to have overwhelming evidence to the fact of anything in the Bible in order for it to be true. Just because some people cannot find 15 to 20 Bible verses about the subject of homosexuality, they feel it is not worthy of mention and deem it to be insignificant to their view of God. However, God does not view it this way. In fact God says we only need at the minimum, two verses in the Bible to establish any truth. If you can find just two verses it is an established truth from God’s perspective. That is the Bible law of interpretation and you can ignore it, if you want to. Here is another very clear verse in 1 Corinthians and it says something that is profound if you look up the definitions of all of the words. God starts by declaring that He is talking about the “unrighteous”. Unrighteousness is the opposite of being righteous. To be “righteous” means you are in good standing with God. The Bible declares that true Christians have obtain the righteousness of God, so we know that this verse is not talking about true Christians. The word translated as “unrighteous” means “heathen” and “wicked”. So the unrighteous are clearly warned that they will not inherit the kingdom of God. The verse then goes and defines who these unrighteous people are. Most of the descriptions of these next terms are sexually based. So right there we have a major problem being presented to the church. I’ll start with the word “fornicators” and that word means “male prostitute”. Isn’t that interesting? This is someone who sells their body for the sexual pleasure of others. This word can apply to homosexual prostitutes as well as heterosexual prostitutes. But I do not see the need for most women to buy a prostitute so this is not what God is talking about, is it? Now let’s skip to the word translated as “adulterer”. The word in the Strong’s carries the “male” gender for a word that is a derogatory definition of a “male lover”. Again this is not a good word for men. Now let’s continue to the next word translated as “effeminate”, we can already see the negative implications on this word. The Strong’s defines this word as a “catamite”. A catamite is defined as a boy that is kept for the sexual pleasure of an older man. This is the definition of a homosexual and you can ignore it if you want to stay in your sinful ways, but it does not change the truth. Finally, the last Greek word in the verse tops off the list with the most plain conformation and definition, this word is translated in the KJV as “abuser of themselves with mankind”. Already we see a pattern of definitions that is clearly not an endorsement of the homosexual lifestyle. This Greek word is defined in Strong’s as a “Sodomite”. This is just so clear that those who do not want to know the truth have been blinded by Satan to not accept what God is saying to them in a clear warning. Sodomy is male sex with a male. I mean give me a break, the only way a male has sex with a male is either orally or anally. Males are not designed this way and God tells you very clearly that it is an abuse of the original sexual design of humanity. So those who want to continue to be how they say they were created will probably not change no matter how many scripture verses I give them. Gay men and women will always ignore the truth for whatever they want to do. Either they will see the truth and change or they will encounter the error of their ways for an eternity. This is what the Bible says, so accept it or choose to reject it and die in your sins, it will always be your choice. I’m sorry if I’m being very blunt, but it is time to be plain, sound a clear warning and tell the truth.
1Jn 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
We have already clearly seen the relationship of lust to homosexuality, if you do not understand the relationship of the two, then you do not want to know the truth. What is homosexuality? What is the definition of homosexuality? It is the sexual relationship of two people of the same sex. So why do people do this? The Bible calls it the lust of the flesh. To lust after flesh is said not to be of God, but is said to be of the world. God is giving you some very clear information about homosexuality in a non-direct way. If you think that you can lust after a man and be a Christian man at the same time, God says this is not of Me.
2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
This is what churches are doing who let in Gay ministers. They ignore God’s truth and preach their own version of godliness. They do not want to have to change, so they change the Bible to fit what they desire. The subject of lust is widely discussed in the Bible, and you should be able to see how it applies to homosexuality. If you do not, it really doesn’t matter what God says to you anywhere, you have already made up your mind to stay where you are at. Did you know God will let you do that? God never forces anyone to change.
I could give you many, many other Bible verses on the subject that are far more direct and speak clearly on this subject, but I have gone long enough for now. I suppose I will hear some criticism about what I have written. I know there are churches in America that stand up and allow homosexual leaders to teach and preach and to be ordained as God’s chosen ones. These people have gathered together teachers who justify what they want to hear and have chosen to ignore the truth. Do not be deceived with them. If you are going to a church that promotes sin as something good, you are going to the wrong church. I always get amused at people who do not like what God says in the Bible. People like to attack the messenger and want to kill them for bringing them the bad news. God says certain things about homosexuality that will not be popular with those who wish to continue in their ways. I did give you enough information in this one blog to show you how you change what you are doing, if God is talking to you today. If you do not agree with what God says in the Bible, then I prefer not hear the words of fools and idiots, so do not leave me any negative comments. Take up your negative comments with God and not me, I did not write the Bible.
It is difficult not to have an opinion on this subject of homosexuality. We cannot go anywhere, where it is not thrown in front of us. If you have been on vacation to any of the popular destinations in our country, you have been confronted with homosexuality on every street corner. San Francisco has widely been held as the capital city of the Gay community, put we were confronted with it in Key West, Florida and even north in Martha’s Vineyard, then certain districts of New York City. We were in Orlando Florida at Disney World, one year and it just so happened to be the same time that Disney held Gay Pride Day or something like that. There are Gay Pride parades and events in every major city now and they dress up and cross dress and do as many perverted unnatural things as they want to call it all normal behavior. Very few places in the world are now not open to the blatant show of in your face sin. Almost everyone in the media, and on TV and in the Movies have come up with a direct homosexual agenda that is being rammed down the throats of God fearing Christians. The News media likes to put homosexuality in the same category as racial bigotry and hatred. I do not know how they can confuse the two issues and think we can lump these into the same level of intolerance. One is a Sin and the other is the color of someone’s Skin. Is there a difference, you bet there is. The homosexual lifestyle is portrayed as a valid alternative lifestyle on TV. Homosexuals have come out of the closets in droves in the last 50 years. Gay marriage is being pushed in every state as a violation of their rights. Acceptance and equal rights is the agenda of the Gay community. All calling for acceptance in who they say they are. This is the way we were born, this is how we are, it’s in our DNA, and so they would like to try to convince us. They are claiming to have been born with a Gay gene. Now having said all of that, I do not think Christians should go around and hold up signs, telling Gays that God Hates Them. That is idiotic and not helping anyone. Where in the Bible does it say that God hates Gays? Christians should not be in the Gay bashing or hatred realm of existence. We are to preach the good news, like Jesus did in a way that might help some. I believe that Christians are to stand up for what is right and base what we believe solely on the Bible. So have you ever read the Bible? What does it say about Homosexuality? I have not found anything favorable or tolerant about this sin, have you? However, it is still just a sin like every other sin and God views all sin in the same light, on the same level plane. One sin is not greater than another if you study your Bible, you will see that God does not rate sin in varying degrees like people do.
So if you are struggling with this issue and thinking there is no hope, you are wrong. You do not know the power of God to change the hearts and minds of people who want to change. If you want to stay where you are and do what you do, God will let you. I have given you enough information in this blog on what it takes to change. With God’s help you can do it.
If you want to go and read the next lesson in this series you may go to “Part 2“.
(ver 1.3) This is now Part 4 in the essential Bible study series of lessons on the subject of “What God thinks about abortion”. If you have not read these lessons from the beginning I would strongly recommend that you go back and start with “Part 1” first. I don’t know if this will be the last lesson on this subject or not. I will just try to wait to see if and when the LORD would like to say more to us on this subject. There is really so much more to learn. There are so many subjects in the Bible that need to be taught and understood. However, I do believe that this subject of abortion is one of the most important areas focused upon in the heart of God at this end of our time on earth. This evil has become so common and acceptable in the minds of people. This act of killing the voiceless has happened to millions of children that are now missing from our world. The legalization of this evil by 7 men on the U.S. Supreme Court has overruled the beliefs of what was a dominate majority of sane people back in 1973. How has the people of God become so passive in allowing this to continue. I guess if it is not happening to us or anyone we know then we are not as concerned as we should be.
Although here is a major problem that should concern us all. If God can not stop people from killing their own children in their wombs, that He is trying to send into this world to accomplish His will, then what is next? I have always noticed that if we allow evil at all, it will continue to grow into greater levels of horrific corruption. What I am asking, is what is next? It use to be that abortion was rare in the first trimester. But, suddenly it has creeped further into the pregnancy that it has become acceptable even until the last moments before birth. They call this partial birth abortions. As long as the child has not fully exited, they suck the child’s brains out to make sure they are not alive after they fully exist. Now, we are hearing of legislators and governors that are promoting infanticide. This is the death of the child after exiting fully. This is where we are going because we believed killing babies in the first couple of months of pregnancy in the womb was ok. This growing attitude represents a growing moral decay of the value of life. It will continue to grow further into next killing children long after they are born because they have developed some condition that is not acceptable for some reason. Then this evil will move to older and people next for the same reasoning. When would killing stop?
I have probably said several things that offended someone. But, this is what is happening in the U.S. and the world. I’ll ask you another question? Do you believe God can do anything to help us change this? I know I believe that but only if we cooperate with Him. Otherwise, God will not override human will to commit or allow evil. However the Bible says this on the Subject of Abortion. I mentioned this verse in the last lesson and it is so essential that we will go into it again in more depth:
Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing therefore choose life that both thou and thy seed may live:
So is this verse about abortion? Sure it is! These are the words of God and this is what He said to you and me about abortion. He told us that the choice was in our hands and it was our responsibility for the well being of not only us, but our children. If God told you personally, that you could choose to live or to die, then makes this recommendation, “Choose Life!”, what would you do? Notice how we learn that God can only make recommendations for what we choose to do. God doesn’t make the decisions for us. We will find this to be a common theme though out the Bible. God is not the grand puppet master in heaven controlling what we decide to do everyday and every moment of the day. God makes some very strong recommendations for our greater good and many times He gives us the consequences to our wrong choices to teach us not to do them again. But God never forces anyone to choose life. He will let us even kill our babies. He does this to give us freewill, even though He gave us that child to be a blessing, for a purpose and He had a great plan for that child in the world.
I don’t really know how people can read verses like these and not understand them, but I guess if it doesn’t go along with their current thought process or their current belief system, they just ignore them and pretend they are not relevant or they don’t exist. But, these types of words spoken by God are not unique and they apply to every person in creation. If you think they don’t, then God clearly lies and shows favoritism toward only a few certain people.
Psalm 22:9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breast.
Psalm 22:10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.
Isaiah 49:1 Listen O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hat called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.
If God knew this man’s name before he was born, then he knows every child’s name while they are still in their mother’s womb. God even loves and knows the names of all the children that were aborted and murdered for being not wanted and loved by any human. I know that will not sit well with a lot of people, but I didn’t say it, the God of the Bible said it and I go along with His words and I don’t really care what you think about me.
I read this next scripture and it really struck a chord with me. It sounded so much like what we are experiencing in this nation right now. We have a government system that is probably one of the greatest on the entire planet. However, even our system in the wrong hands can cause a lot of problems. When I wrote this lesson, we are experiencing a political system controlled currently by an extreme group of left leaning people that have deceived a majority of the nation into believing that what they represent is good and right. Some of these even have called themselves Christians. But in my book a Christian is someone that follows Christ and therefore would only do what He says for us to do. Jesus made this statement, “you will know them by their fruit” (Mat 7:20). What that means is obviously open to interpretation to some degree and what some might call fruit. But, I wonder what God thinks about their fruit?
Romans 16:18 For they that are such serve not out Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
We have allowed Satan to develop a generation of people that qualify to be easily deceived. Why are they so easily deceived? I believe it is because of the removal of God and the Bible from the classroom in 1963. Satan observed how easy this was to do and has continued this strategy even until today. The end of educating children in public forums of the knowledge of Bible has caused the rapid decline of morality. Each step of decline represented a progressive methodological plan to introduce decay to human standards of morals and principles. We have had political leaders that speak of things in subtle ways that twist truths around to change what was good appear to seem evil and what evil now seem to appear good.
I heard this terminology on television given by one of these types of deceiving leaders recently and it was welcoming people to the “Democratic Values”. They were welcoming a new convert that recently changed political parties. I mean to put the words “Democrat” and “Values” together in the same sentence is an oxymoronic attempt at establishing what they consider as an acceptable alternative life style. They want to speak and profess a view to include every lifestyle and behavior no matter how perverse. They strive to seek “common ground” with every point of view no matter how extreme and wish to be acceptable to every immoral act including murdering babies.
Some would probably say that I’m a Republican. Perhaps you are thinking we should not introduce politics into Bible lessons, but I disagree. I am not telling anyone how to vote or who to vote for. But I do ask for Christians to rad their Bibles, pray and seek God and ask Him who they should vote for and then go and vote. With all of the corruption, sex scandals in Washington D.C. on both the Republican and Democratic sides, it has become increasingly difficult to know who to vote for. I realize that nobody is perfect, but it seems in today’s elections we are sometimes voting for the lesser of the two evils. The lack of true Christian participation in our political process is pretty sad. But, God is still able to use anyone even if we do not feel they are the perfect candidate. Trust God! Hear from God! Listen to what God says in the Bible and vote accordingly the best that you are able.
I’ll get off the political soap box and go back to the subject at hand. There are too many people in the world that refuse to recognize the significance and value of human life at conception. Most of them are all for human rights except for those who are unable to vote or speak for themselves. An incredible number of defenseless unborn children are being murdered and terminated on a daily basis around the world and they claim that it is the woman’s right to choose that would be violated if they didn’t allow this to happen.
The logic behind this reasoning is foolishness. No one addresses the real issue, they only want to treat the symptoms as the only problem. The root of every physical abortion problem is spiritual in nature. Why is it permissible for a woman to murder her baby before it is born and it is not permissible after it is born? For some reason certain individuals have reasoned that one is acceptable and the other one is not. I guess they think that because the child has not yet breathed a breath of air or ate a natural meal that it is therefore not a legitimate or complete life form. They use to call the child NOT “Viable”; a form of life that is not really a complete self sufficient life form. I have said this before, but it needs to be repeated because this is where we are moving. With this kind of thinking and logic why is it not OK to kill new babies after birth? They still don’t have the ability to be self-sufficient or the ability to care for themselves. Babies when they are born are just as totally dependent upon their mother to sustain them, feed them and nurture them in order that he or she can grow and develop as they are while they are still in the womb. It takes years before a child is self-sufficient. Why is it not OK to kill these children, if they can’t take care of themselves and you don’t want them? You see the only difference between these two children is we have laws that protect them after they born and no laws that protect them before they are born. People’s logic and justification for abortion is pretty crazy.
So what is the root cause for babies? If there was not a baby to abort there would be no issue to discuss, would there? So what is the root cause for babies? It is really a very simple answer, sex. People want the opportunity to have sex with whom ever they want, when ever they want and for there to be absolutely no consequences to their actions. I learned in science and physics classes that there is always a cause and an effect. If you see waves in a pool, you know somebody threw something in to the water that caused the waves. Something must always happen first that causes something else to result. God didn’t make things that complicated that we can’t figure this kind of stuff out. People these days want to approach pregnancy as the problem and not the sexual act of pleasure. They do this by desiring to solve their poor choice problem by killing the child that resulted. They ignore the real problem of desiring the pleasure, because they like that part of it. After all people say we can’t stop teens from having sex, can we? After all their hormones are in a rage of fury and need to be satisfied. But, while there has always been desires for pre-marital sex, it was not until the Bible was removed from educational systems that free sex with anyone in the 60’s went wild. It was only 10 years later after the removal of the 10 commandments and prayer from schools that the demand for abortions increased to a level that forced another supreme court case to be accepted by Christians.
So the main problem really comes down to a sin issue. People want the pleasures of sex and sin for a moment but not the responsibility or the consequences of sex for the rest of their lives. You see a woman does have a right to choose and make a choice but it is not after the fact when they are faced with the consequences to their previous decisions and actions. It ‘s too late after there is a child to determine and ask the question, do I want a child? When a woman is pregnant they already have a child no matter how long they have been pregnant, one day or 9 months of time doesn’t matter to God.
So that may sound like an easy answer to some while to a great number of others, it probably turned them off or even enraged them. After all it sounds like my opinion on the subject and my opinion on the subject matters the same as your opinion on the subject, ZERO! The problem with politicians today is they have an opinion and it is usually slanted towards their prospective voters that elect them into office. You see they let popular opinion determine what is right and what is wrong.
I would ask you this simple question again, do you think it matters to GOD what you think about the subject of abortion? Is GOD swayed by popular opinion or pressure from the left or from the right? Is God changing His mind on the value of human life because people can now create test tube babies and manipulate DNA and change other characteristics scientifically. Does the advances in medical sciences change God’s opinion on what people should do or not do? I assume most people today think that God doesn’t care what they do. They believe there are no consequences for doing what they think is right even if it is severely wrong in the eyes of God.
I am a firm believer that every aborted or miscarried child is in heaven today. I recently heard a story of a young boy that died and went to heaven. While he was there he talked with a girl that was his sister that he never met because she was miscarried by his mother before he was born. His mother never told him about her. Yet when he came back and survived this death experience to talk with his mother about it, she was shocked because he knew about her. This teaches me along with verses like 2 Samuel chapter 12:23 where David had a child with Bathsheba that died and He said “I can go to him, but he cannot return to me”. Someday we are all going to meet the children that died in the womb. We will all be very surprised to find out that they loved us very much. I would not be surprised that they have forgiven us for our evil stupidity. I really can’t imagine what they day will be like fully. I just have tears while I think about it and write how it will occur.
If you have had an abortion, I can’t imagine what you are thinking. I don’t know the reasons why you made that choice. I do know that God loves you very, very much. He will forgive you if you will repent and ask Him for mercy. If you are an abortion doctor with innocent blood of the multitudes of children on on your hands, God loves you also. While many would like you to spend eternity in hell for doing such evil, God wants you to be saved and not go to hell. Please stop what you are doing and ask for forgiveness.
If you are an abortion room assistant or have worked for organizations like “Planned Parenthood”, God loves you also. God will forgive you and help you to change to want to save innocent lives instead of taking them. Just pray and ask God to forgive you. If you are a judge that ruled in favor of allowing abortions, God loves you also. The blood of all these children can be washed away by the more powerful blood of Jesus if you ask. If you are a voter that voted for any politician that supports the funding of these evils, God loves you also.
There is no sin that cannot be covered and cleansed by the Blood of Jesus. The emotional distress and pain is another issue, while Jesus cannot take away the memory, He can give you a hope that says everything will become much better with time and the hope of being reunited with the children that never got the opportunity to live on the earth. Eternity and being in heaven with Jesus will be far greater than our experiences here and now on the earth.
God bless you and thank you for reading these Bible lessons. If you would like to leave a comment and share your experiences that would probably help someone else tremendously. Satan uses the same tricks and traps over and over and we all need to help and support each other. I love you and God loves you. Become a blessing and supporter of life. Thank you!
(Ver 1.4) We have been going through the Bible on the subject of abortion. More specifically in relation to what God thinks about this subject and ignoring the opinions of men and women. This is now Part 3 in the series. So if you have not read these lessons from the beginning I would recommend strongly that you go back and start reading with “Part 1” first. What else does the Bible reveal to us about the thoughts of God on abortion? Obviously, we have seen some very significant things in previous lessons from the book of Judges and Isaiah. These only become obvious when we study the subject searching for the truth that is related to the subject. But once we see it and understand it, then no one can take it away from us or deceive us 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 things we better take it to heart, believe it and put it into action. I found another very good example given to us by God in the book of Genesis with the story of Isaac and Rebecca. Let us read the verse:
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 we read in the book of Judges in the first lesson. Here we have a story of a woman who was barren. This simply meant she was not able to have a child but yet she wanted to have one. Isaac prays to God and his wife Rebekah was able to conceive. So where did the child come from? Was he a gift of answered prayer from God? If this child is from God due to an a answered prayer request, does this imply that every child comes from God? Ask this question. Did God withhold the child from being conceived? It is obvious to me that Isaac and his wife tried many times to have a child and failed. Is this normal? Some couples do have a lot of trouble conceiving for many medical reasons, some are on the female reproductive side and others are on the male reproductive side. A barren women seems to indicate in this case it was Rebekah that had the problem.
One problem with abortion that needs to be addressed is that there are a lot of infertile couples in the world that would like to receive an aborted child and take care of him or her to raise them as their own. This is a very significant answer for women that get pregnant and feel like they are unable to keep or take care of the child. There are so many options other than murdering an unborn child for us to consider.
I knew of a lady that this happened to. She got pregnant when she was not married by falling into a trap of Satan to sleep and be intimate with a guy from a fit of temporary passion and pleasure. She did not consider the consequences of having this relationship at that moment but found out shortly afterwards what had happened. I mean this lady already had two daughters so she knew how things worked and what would happen. But, we all do foolish things on a spur of the moment poor choice.
This woman did not want to keep her child because of her single status and the fact her guy friend did not turn out to be so responsible for his part in the creation of the child. I’m sure this nice woman regretted her choice and even considered having an abortion. However, she found a friend that wanted the child and after she was born the friend took her and raised her. The real mother that gave birth was still able to watch her child develop and grow in a loving complete family environment. And the other couple that is caring for the child is thrilled that they had a child to love. We must understand that this other couple was unable to conceive and this solution that God provided kept the child alive and made everyone involved, including the child happy. God is able to do much more than we can think if we give Him the chance and believe (Eph 3:20).
If all this is true, about God’s ability, God’s involvement in the process, and God’s desire to meet and answer the prayers of people, who are we to terminate the pregnancy of God’s gift? Please understand the child that is killed has no one to defend them or stop even their mom from taking their life. This miraculous gift from God is a new him or her that has a purpose to exist! We can choose to do right to answer someone else’s prayer for a child or fail and resist what God desired to do for someone else. We should really think about that a long time before we end a pregnancy. Now let’s continue reading in this story in Genesis.
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 of pregnancy there is not one child but twins, two children that are formed as gifts from God and answers to prayer. Did you notice that in verse 22 of Genesis 25, that God called them “children” even before they were born? They are still both within their mother’s womb and God calls them living “children”. Not a fetus, not an embryo, not a potential life form, not a future or potential child. God calls them H1121 the Hebrew word that means sons and children, the same title and name given to born babies. This Hebrew word literally means a person who is the builder of the family and the continuation of the family name. Wow, I pray you understood that definition.
If God calls them both “son family builders” and children while they are in the womb, who are we to call them anything else? Doesn’t this recognition provide us a very clear divine viewpoint of what God thinks of children in the womb? This is of course the antithesis of what Satan thinks about children in the womb. Satan knows the truth but uses a technique to deceive humans by relabeling the truth as a false concept by calling something truthful by a different false name. Satan does this in order to dehumanize and devalue them. This is also the plan of Satan today to end the design of the God created family structure. Satan has done this by calling babies an embryo, a fetus, a beginning nucleus, the stage after fertilization, developing tissues, rudimentary development or something else worse like a germ. I’m sure you have heard slang terms for a developing child as being called a bun in the oven, or a woman that is knocked up, or even she is just “late” (for her normal monthly cycle).
Satan brainwashes people into believing by the media and education institutes that narrate a constant flow of repetitive untruths that are used to distract us from learning the truth. For example, liberals do not call the murder of a child ant abortion anymore, it has been falsely promoted to “women’s healthcare” choices. WOW! But, what about the child’s healthcare choices? No, this goes along with the brainwashing that he or she is not a child being dehumanized to be only a blob of potential life. Liberals have designed this approach so that whatever we use to believe was the truth we can’t call an unborn child what God calls them. Let us get back to our Bible verses. Rebekah understood the children insider her were living beings and that they were struggling and fighting each other on the inside of her already. She uses wisdom in her situation and goes to God and asks Him about what is happening inside her body between her children. This is what God’s response was 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 us 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 corporately represent two independent nations and two different groups of people living on the earth. That is really a very heavy statement made by the living God, our creator. What if there had been abortion available to Rebekah and she had ended the lives of these children? A great number of people would not have been born and two nations would not exist today. Remember that God called them nations and people while they were still unborn children and in the womb. God recognized who they were and what they would become long before they were ever born. That is pretty plain and very clear if you ask me.
Please recall who these two children were! The firstborn was named Esau and the second born son was named Jacob. Esau originates a nation called Edom with his descendants being called Edomites. Jacob on the other hand originate the nation of Israel having 12 sons that originated the twelve tribes of Israel and eventually our LORD Jesus Christ. Wow, thank God that both of these nations were born!
So we learn and confirm the fact that God knows not only who you are before we are born, but He also knows every descendant that will come from us after we are born. WOW! 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 the life created within them? Is God going to hold us responsible for the children that were not born here because of what we decided? I believe with all of my heart that He will and I do not want to find out the consequences for making that decision or for even voting for people that promote that right to choose. Are we willingly participating in murder by how we vote? Again I believe we are!
There are many other verses in the Bible like these that I can give you that will tell us the same thing. God knows us before we are born, even while we are in our mother’s womb and He already has a plan and a purpose for each of us to fulfill. God knows our name before we are born, he knows where we will live, work and play. God knows every child, grandchild and descendant that will come from us. We can go through the Bible and we will see this repeatedly if we are looking for it. 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 revealed so much, that I had great 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 was a priest that received tithes from the nation of Israel. 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 being 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 named Levi. How can Levi great-grandson of Abraham pay tithes long before he was born back in when his great-grandfather 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 we are learning is that whatever Abraham did, Levi also did. We are also learning that Levi existed in Abraham years before he was even conceived in his mother. Wow, wow, and wow! That is very strong and powerful information. People clearly do not have a clue what is in them and what they are doing to their children today. The spiritual law implications given here are incredibly far reaching. Out of the millions or billions of sperm cells in Abraham, God already recognized that one of them was representative of a future descendant named Levi. God then teaches us that whatever your father did, you also did because you were physically present inside your father, your grandfather and even your great-grandfather. If you can see it this of course is directly related to abortion, because everyone still comes from the union between one man and one woman. God sees and knows the exact individual specific parts on the inside of us (the exact egg and sperm) that will create every baby and He calls them by their name long before they arrive into the world.
I hope and pray that you are grasping the concepts being taught here by the Holy Spirit from His living Word! If you do grasp them, you should never think about having sex casually and aborting the resulting child in the same way again. This child is known by God. God knew exactly the two cells that would come together to form this child and He knew their name and their purpose for existence. He also knows every descendant that was supposed to come from them whether to create a new nation, a new President, a new scientist, etc. Please take this information and share it with others. We are in a spiritual warfare on this planet between good and evil. Satan is evil and he desires to kill every descendant and potential threat to conquering and overcoming his evil. God is good and came to give everyone life and that life even in abundance (Jn 10:10). Therefore we should do what God recommends to us in Deuteronomy 30:19, when He says “I have set before you life and death, therefore choose life that you and your descendants live”. Wow, that is an amazing recommendation and I pray I helped someone today to make the right choice. Thank for reading and studying the Word of The Creator God. I pray that it is a blessing to you and will help enlighten the choices that you may be faced with today. I love you and God loves you. There are alternatives to death and their are greater benefits to giving life than you can imagine right now.
If you would like to continue reading this series of lessons you can go to “Part 4“.
(Ver 1.4) This is Part 2 in a series of advanced Bible lessons about the subject of what God thinks about human abortion. If you have not read this series from the beginning, I would recommend very highly that you go back and start reading with “Part 1” first. This series was designed to build upon each of the preceding lessons. If you missed the first lesson then you have missed the basic foundations necessary to continue the study. Thank you for joining this Bible study and please do go and get your Bible out or your tablet or phone and open your Bible Application to verify everything that is stated is what you find in your Bible. 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 (Luke 11:9). Which means if we do not seek correctly, we 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, is that it matters what we are looking for. Truth never changes, but our knowledge of the truth will change only if we search to find God’s wisdom and His point of view on the subject. I will say that there are people who look for verses to justify their belief in abortion and a woman’s right to choose. According to the Law given by Jesus if that is what we seek for we can find verses that seem to justify that position. But, does that make it the truth? Absolutely not! God wrote and designed the Bible to give humans the right to choose to know the truth or to not know the truth. If He had not given us this right then we would have been created as pre-programmed robots that could only follow His will imbedded in our internal software. But, we know this is not happening simply by observing human behavior all around us. God wrote 10 fundamental commandments in Exodus 20, and I have never met a human yet on the earth that has not violated at least one of these edicts. Therefore, none of us are robots and everyone has come short of the glory of God by sinning (Rom 3:23).
In my last lesson, I introduced us to the subject of abortion in the Bible. We saw a key definition of abortion from the Merriam-Webster dictionary that correctly defined the meaning of the word to include the “death” of the child during the termination of the pregnancy. Wow, that was important. Here we have a fundamental confirmation that this was a developing life form. You should know that a child is created by the union of the female egg and the male sperm and Webster was smart enough to understand that this was a life form that can die or be killed. In fact if we sent a probe to the planet mars and found these two cells and brought them back to earth for analysis, there would be such great excitement of the discovery of life on Mars that we cannot imagine it. Scientists would be so excited that life could exist on another place other than earth, that we would not be able to keep them silent. This would help them prove that life could evolve anywhere and evolution was a viable theory. But, these cells in the womb of a woman on earth are deemed unimportant by the same scientists.
Today, I will continue with the subject of what else God thinks about abortion today. Please let us stop and pray and ask the Holy Spirit to open our eyes to see how He sees the termination of a child in the womb before birth. So let’s get started.
OBSERVING NEW GOD THOUGHTS
Here is another interesting verse of God’s Word specifically concerning 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 even while he was still in the womb of his mother. It also claims that He already knew his name. This proves that God knows the names of every born and unborn and even aborted child. Then God says “I know what Isaiah will do, I know the plan for his 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 definitely 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 have a purpose in life that causes them to believe that NO human life is valuable in the eyes of God. But, in actuality the opposite is true. To God, ALL HUMAN LIFE IS VALUABLE!
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 also formed the child in her. Have you ever studied the complexity of internal human development from the union of two different cells? The join together and make one cell first. This creates a combined unique complex DNA pattern that is used to by God to created entire individual containing trillions of cells when fully grown. But, this process initially begins by cell divisions that eventually start dividing into very unique and different cell types. Some cells form the head, some form the heart and other living organs, while others form the bones and skull tissues. Every unique organ has originated with a designed intentionality. What makes the union of just two cells create such a differing amount of tissues that cooperate and coordinate in specific order to work in harmony? God claims He is at work in this process and if you knew how complex that it was, you would understand how smart God is. I say this because He is capable of doing this to millions of people on earth simultaneously.
If God formed this child named Jeremiah, we know that He also forms every child. The Bible says that God is no respecter of persons. What God does for one He is required to do for all. If a woman decides to terminate her child after God has formed him or her, then exactly who is this 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 believe that God is in sovereign control of everything that is happening in the world are greatly ignorant or 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 we must ask how do we know that God has plans for me nd 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 Bible as “thoughts” but it 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 long before you were conceived or born, and I have a purpose for you after coming into this world. You have a specific purpose from God in arriving and 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 child that is soon to be conceived.
The Bible teaches us to establish every truth in the mouth of two or three witnesses (Mat 18:16) and I have done that very conclusively with these verses written by two different prophets over two thousand years ago. But, But we are not finished with this subject, so we will continue on it again in the next lesson. 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.
If you would like to continue reading in this series of lessons about what God thinks about abortion, please continue to “Part 3“.
(Ver 1.5) This is Part 1 of a series of advanced Bible lessons about what God thinks about the subject of abortion. In the news a while back there was a great controversial clash of opinion between the left and the right that took place. It appears that one of the nation’s biggest Catholic Universities invited one of our liberal Democratic Presidents to speak at their graduation commencement. The single point of confrontation was a delicate subject that has divided our nation since 973. So what is this subject that has caused such a major division and debate? It is the subject of abortion. This subject came to the forefront of U.S. history in 1973 when the Supreme Court ruled abortion to be legal in a case named Roe vs. Wade. It still amazes me how 9 people on a court can make such sweeping broad rulings of moral values. The 7 members of the Supreme Court that ruled in favor of legalized abortion were named 1) Harry Blackburn, 2) Warren Burger, 3) William Douglas, 4) William Brennan, 5) Potter Stewart, 6) Thurgood Marshall and 7) Lewis Powell. According to Deuteronomy 19:10 I believe these seven men have a lot of innocent blood upon their hands. I hope that they regretted their choice and repented before they died.
Let’s begin with the basics. What is an abortion and how is it defined? One dictionary say abortion is “a medical procedure to end a pregnancy”. It uses medicine or surgery to remove the embryo, fetus and placenta from the female uterus. That was a medical description from an abortion provider. But the Merriam-Webster dictionary puts it this way gaining additional new and important information. They say abortion is the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, and resulting in the death of the embryo or fetus. Wow, that changes things dramatically. Isn’t it interesting how some organizations omit words that are not desired to promote a result that would not be allowed after birth? One definition admits there is a death that occurs while the other just leaves this detail out completely. I think as we study the Bible we will learn that Merriam-Webster was more in alignment with God.
It seems that almost everyone in the world has some opinion on this matter and that is really the basis and the root of the entire problem of conflict. You see what I think about the subject of abortion and what you think about abortion really doesn’t matter or count for anything after we die. I mean who are you and who am I? The University speaking Liberal Democrat President’s opinion was that we should all just try to find some common ground and get along on this subject of abortion. But what he thinks really doesn’t matter or count for anything either. In fact what the Supreme Court’s opinion is on the subject of abortion doesn’t really matter or count for anything at all. All human opinion is baseless unless we agree with the one that created us.
What should only matter to you and I and concern us, is what does God think about the subject of abortion? If we could go instantly up to heaven and stand before the throne of God to ask Him a direct question on His thoughts on the subject of abortion, what would His answer be to us? Would God’s opinion change our opinion on the subject or would we still hang on to our opinion in spite of whatever He said about the subject? We should really think about that before we answer.
I wonder if we were confronted by God and told we were wrong about something, what would our response be? We could say I’m sorry, I didn’t know I was wrong and I’ll change immediately to be right. That would be the response of someone that was humble and feared God. Or we could say, I was wrong but then try to explain why we believed what we did was right at the time to justify our thoughts, opinions and actions. We could even try to be like an Adam or an Eve and pass the responsibility to someone else and redirect the attention away from ourselves and say it was just not my fault that I believed abortion was good and right, the court and the President made me believe it was right. We could be a real idiot and say sorry God, you’re wrong and I’m right and I’m not going to change my opinion or what I think no matter what You say or do. This last type of person has absolutely no fear of God. Or we could just care less and be indifferent. Our attitude could be just let people do whatever they want to do, it doesn’t have anything to do with me.
Which kind of person are you? What is your attitude towards this subject? If you are here on earth and can read this lesson from the Bible you must have not been aborted by your mother. Are you happy that your mother didn’t kill you before you were born? I personally believe that now is the time to learn the truth and change our opinions to conform with God’s thoughts on this subject. I’ll let you know right now that there will be no opportunities on judgment day to defend our wrong thoughts, opinions and actions we lived today. If we think there will be this chance, please show us the Bible verse that says this.
BEGINNING TO SEE GOD’S VIEWPOINT
If we proclaim ourselves to be a Christian then we should be aware that the Bible is the inerrant Word of the Living Creator God. The Bible is a directly written personal message to us from our God. The Bible was written for our benefit so that we could know this awesome God who none of us has ever seen before. So what a Christian does should follow God’s Word, His thoughts, His commandments, His instructions and the examples that He has given to us in this book. Let me show something that Jesus said to help confirm this point:
Mat 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Jesus said a wise man is one that hears the Word of God and does it. What is the opposite of that statement? The antithesis truth would be “a fool hears the word of God but does not do it”. What are you today a wise man or a foolish man? We all make this choice everyday in everything we do. So what does the Bible say on the subject of Abortion? And of course what would make us become a wise man that we could learn to change to do? Wisdom always begins with knowledge and knowledge must begin with learning about what God says on the subject abortion?
Like many other modern day Bible subjects the the word “abortion” is not found in the entire book, but that does not mean that God did not give us His thoughts on the subject. All we have to do to become wise is to study and find out what He has said on the subject using the other synonymous words that ARE found on the subject, so let’s do that. I want us to start this lesson by reading a very important foundational verse that is short but directly to the point on the subject of abortion.
Exo 20:13 Thou shalt not kill.
What does God say in this verse? It is one of the stated 10 commandments of God from the Old Testament. Are these a part of the words and of the commandments that Jesus was speaking of for a wise human to do? The Hebrew word H7523 translated as kill in this verse means “You shalt not commit murder”. What exactly is abortion if not murder? We learned earlier that Webster defined abortion as a death. To cause an innocent life to cease from continuing and developing in existence is clearly murder in Bible terms. What is the difference from a developing child inside the womb to one that has exited the womb and is still developing for another 18 years. If it is OK, to kill a developing child inside the womb, would it be fine to kill the same developing child outside the womb? Why is it today that outside the womb killing a child is called murder and killing a child inside the womb it is called abortion? They are both the same child! They are both in developing stages of growth. They both have the exact same DNA structure. Here is where the liberals have become creative to redefine that a living baby in the womb is not really a child but rather just a embryo or fetus and therefore not a viable self sustaining life form. By redefining a living developing child to be simply being labeled as an embryo or fetus they have dehumanized the living child, him or her and eliminated them for qualification as a living being for murder. Why do they not use this same logic when they have passed laws to protect the eggs of unborn eagles? Please answer this question, can a newly born baby child survive on its own outside the womb without assistance? Who is going to feed the child? Who is going to care for the child? Since they are not self sustaining do they fall into the same category and the unborn child that is fed by the umbilical cord that is attached to their mother? Do you see any problems with this type of thinking between how we should treat the child on the inside differently than how we treat them on the outside?
Did you know that destroying an unborn baby eagle bird in its egg is a punishable criminal offense? People can go to jail for killing (murdering) an eagle egg! Clearly it is the exact same type of stated unsustainable developing life form as the child (embryo or fetus) in the mother. Can you tell me what the difference is between an eagle egg and an unborn human baby? Yet one developing life form has gained a much greater value than the other in some people’s mind based upon some unknown reasoning. Why is that? How can that not be viewed as the same logical comparison that should not be ignored? Is the value in one species increased simply based upon the numbers of that species; are numbers what really matter? Because the eagle is endangered, does that make them more valuable to be protected than humans that are more populous on the earth? What do you think? Does God care more about eagles or for people? Did you know Jesus answered this question for you? In Matthew 10:29-31 Jesus speaking of two sparrows says God knows about them, but then tells humans they are much more valuable to Him than many sparrows.
Let me ask you this question, did God come to the earth to save just sparrows and eagles or did He come to save human people? If we do not know the answer to that question then we are in big trouble. John 3:16 gives us the answer by informing us that God loved us in the world so much that He died to save all those that believed in Him. Only a human is capable of believing.
Let us permit God to speak to us further on the subject of abortion and tell us His thoughts and then let us see how we react to His words:
Jdg 13:4 Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing:
Jdg 13:5 For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.
Jdg 13:6 Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of God came unto me, and his countenance was like the countenance of an angel of God, very terrible: but I asked him not whence he was, neither told he me his name:
There are so many things to learn from the Bible, if we are open to the truths that it contains. We begin to learn when we allow God to show us what it actually means. Here is an example of a woman that had not had any children and the messenger of God shows up at her house and tells her that she is going to have a son. How did God know this? I think that is a really fair question and that the answer is probably more revealing than you can imagine. God knew of the child and what he was going to become and do long before he was even conceived. I will tell you that knowing this Bible fact alone will eliminate a woman’s right to choose an abortion. If God knows every child before they are born or even conceived and what they are supposed to be and what they are supposed to accomplish within their life, then who is a woman to overrule God to decide that the child should not be worthy to be born?
We know for a fact from biology class that the sex of a baby is determined by the male sperm from the father. Yet God knew which sperm cell was going to fertilize the egg in this woman in order for a male baby to be born. God knew that there was a future deliverer about to be born and according to many today, they would have said that this decision for him to be born should have been left up to the woman who conceived him. Is that what God thinks? Does a woman’s desire play a role in the plan of God for a child? Would a woman wanting a child be different from another woman not wanting her child? I personally do not believe it does based upon the Bible. We will hopefully look at this question more later.
Did you notice that God gave this woman specific instructions about what she did before she gave birth or this child was even conceived yet? In verse 4 God tells the woman not to eat or drink things that are bad for her or for the future baby. WOW, that is clearly a message that is very profound. God was basically informing us that what she did would affect the future child’s ability to fulfill his purpose. This truth places human responsibility on the mother that is way beyond what the world thinks right now. I believe that women and men will be judged for what they did to their future children good or bad.
This woman, the future mother described in Judges was told not to drink or eat any unclean thing before she conceived and while she carried this child in her womb. Why is this significant? If this was not a viable life form, why does it even matter what a woman eats or drinks? No, you see it does matter because this is not just an embryo or fetus in the eyes of God, or a blob of developing cells. In the eyes of God this was a child and God said it matters what you feed him. If it matters to God about this child and what he is fed in the womb, then it also matters to God and what every other child is fed in the womb. If it matters to God what this child was fed before it was born, then it clearly matters to God if this child was born at all.
Whose responsibility was it to eat the right things and drink the right things for the development of this baby? Was it God’s responsibility to see that his mother did the right thing or not? Did God make her do the right things here? These are not loaded questions! These are not hard questions to figure out the answers to either. If it matters to God about one baby in the Bible, then it matters to God about every baby that is supposed to be born. God does not treat one baby differently than the other, only people do that.
So what happens to all of God’s future planned roles and responsibilities of all of these babies that are aborted in our world by the mother’s choice to override God’s will? Do you think that the aborted children’s responsibilities in this life are just given to others that were not aborted? Or do you think that it is possible that there are a bunch of things that are not taking place and getting done, because the one that was going to find the cure for cancer was aborted? What if this child in Judges would have been aborted? What if his mother would have drunk wine and ignored the commandment of God? Would God had another deliverer to raise up or would Israel not have been delivered? I personally believe that this is a major problem with abortion and that there would have been no other one to take this child’s place.
Therefore, how many doctors, lawyers and teachers do you think have been aborted since 1973? Who or what exactly are we missing out on? Because of the abortion of the millions of future skilled workers, tax payers and roles that are being unfulfilled. How many church pastor’s, preachers, teachers and evangelists have been eliminated from coming into the world to help others get saved and not go to hell? Satan has used murdering people that some call doctors to create a population imbalance and reduction. Satan is trying his best to eliminate humans from coming into this world because they are threat to him.
This was just the introduction to the subject of “What does God think about Abortion?” I pray that you can begin to see from just one story in the Bible that it must matter greatly to God if a child is born. Why do you think Satan wants to kill all of the future children and keep them from entering the world? Could it be that one of these are the preacher that will reach the whole world with the truth? Does Satan think by eliminating future Christians that he can remain on this planet a little longer? I tell you that there are many things to consider on this subject. One is why has Satan been motivated to kill human children even since early in the book of Genesis? When Moses was born babies were tossed into the river to be drown, if they were males. This was a repeated occurrence when Jesus was born in Bethlehem and every child under 2 years old was killed. You see Satan is attempting to fight against whatever God has planned and is doing. We need to learn the truth and figure out whose side we want to be on. Abortion is a demonic evil plan of Satan to eliminate future humans and potential Christians. God is a pro-life God and is opposed to ALL abortion. We will continue to learn this as we go through this series of Bible lessons. Thanks for reading and studying the Bible with us today. I pray that what was stated has helped you to see what God really thinks on the subject and importance of future life.
If you would like to continue reading in this series of lessons on what God thinks about abortion, please continue to “Part 2“.
