(Ver 1.1) This is now Part 5 in the essential Bible study series focused upon Christians and the people of the world obtaining an increased understanding of what God thinks about the subject of Abortion. We have covered a lot of Bible verses on this subject and we will not be repeating that information here today. Therefore, I would recommend that if you have not read from the beginning that you go and start with “Part 1” first. But also know that this lesson will stand alone revealing new information that is not dependent upon any of the previous lessons.
WARNING: I will tell you from the beginning this lesson subject and what God says about it will offend a lot of people. Truth has always been hated by the world. They crucified an innocent man named Jesus on a cross for only doing good and telling the truth. If they did that to Him without cause they can still do that today in the practice of abortion. Therefore, if you are easily offended at this subject of abortion, please go read somebody else that fits your beliefs (2 Ti 4:3).
It should be obvious to many that Christians have failed to protect the lives of the unborn in America and the world. By Christian participation in this act of abortion or simply our passivity to permit it to occur, I believe the heart of God is tremendously grieved. This act that many call a “woman’s choice” has the most severe consequences possible for their voiceless victims. This is not like taking drugs or alcohol that causes birth defects, even though that is not good for the child either. There is still opportunity for recovery using healthcare or prayer. But, this choice of abortion is not healthcare regardless of what someone tries to label it. These dismembered babies sold for parts and profit do not have their health considered.
These children in the womb have life, they can hear your voice speaking, they can feel the pain and they try to save themselves from being torn to pieces by moving away from the instruments of torture and death. But these victims are limited from escape by the walls that surround them. They cannot move far enough from the tools used by the hands that want to shed their innocent blood without a cause.
These are natural reactions for any human in the womb or out of the womb. When faced with great pain and physical hard the natural response comes from the built in divinely designed process of self-preservation and survival. Any human with feelings, will immediately remove their hand from a red hot stove. This is the same for the child in the womb. Death is still an enemy to every human born and unborn (1 Cor 15:26), yet people have become accustomed to this process of death when it is not happening to them. This comes from a deception of Satan that eliminates feelings of compassion. Just like rioters burning down businesses, it should concern everyone, but it does not because “it is not my business”. The acts of evil people must be stopped.
The thought that death should be acceptable for someone that is unseen and unable to be heard to scream is mind blowing. God please forgive us. The tolerance for these acts can come from many reasons. Satan has caused humans to believe the child is not a child until they breath air. But we have seen in previous Bible lessons that this is NOT TRUE. We can learn this from basic senses also. A sonogram will show the child sucking their thumb, reacting to sounds, and moving around. Any pregnant woman knows this baby is alive because they can move and kick her. Any good doctor can confirm this life by listening to their heartbeat. People today also have believed another lie that humans just evolved from monkeys. Therefore, there is no difference from killing animals as it is to kill a human child in the womb. But that is also not the truth and not how God created us. Humans were made in the image of God and animals were NOT.
If the opening statements have no effect on your heart and you do not feel the pain of suffering for the over 60 million children that have been killed since this evil was legitimatized as normal and legalized as acceptable, then you may be very hard hearted. If you are voting for politicians that will appoint judges to continue this insanity, you have been deceived. If you are voting for politicians that are passing laws to kill babies right up to birth or after birth, you are far from knowing God’s heart of love and compassion. People who think they are Christians may be shocked to find out that they will be held accountable for every innocent child’s blood that has been shed simply because they did not stand up against it. I heard it put this way and I totally agree. Every Planned Parenthood building should have a sign outside that says, “Abortions Performed by the Permission of Christians”. Another man named Edmund Burke said it this way “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”. This is what too many Christians have been doing.
God’s way of dealing with this issue of abortion is peaceful, loving and kind. The Bible teaches us that it is the goodness of God that will lead humans to repentance (Rom 2:4). Therefore, this lesson is not intended to judge or condemn anyone for their participation in abortion. If you have ever had an abortion the blood of Jesus is more than sufficient to forgive you and cleanse you from every unrighteous sin. It should be this all-encompassing gift of forgiveness that should help us all. I know I am grateful for what Jesus did for me and I pray you are also.
Today we are going to study God’s Word to find more of His perspective on the interior created parts of the woman that are called the “womb”. We are going to learn that God designed this womb area as a vacant temporary dwelling space. A place for the origination and continuation of life in safety, peace, and tranquility. If it were not for this designed plan of the womb, Jesus could not have been born to enter into our world legally to save us. I say thank you Jesus for being born as a human baby to save us.
However, Satan has always desired and planned to change this womb safe environment into being a place of war, death, violence, destruction, and chaos. Death is still Satan’s number one goal for every human. If Satan cannot stop the child from being born, he continues the plan to try to kill everyone on the outside of the womb. Remember, what Jesus said to us in John 10:10, “The thief comes not but to kill steal and destroy, but I have come that you might have life and that life in abundance”. These represent two opposing plans of death verses life and we can see this is still what is taking place within the womb of a woman today. Let us get started with this study. I pray that, I have not offended too many, already by this opening statement (Gal 4:16).
GOD DESIGNED THE WOMB TO BE A SAFE SPACE
Today’s Bible lesson will be different than any of the previous lessons in the series. In this lesson we are going to focus entirely on learning our Creator God’s thoughts concerning the female “womb”. For example, what was His divine purpose for this part of His creation and how does He define the womb. For example, we as Christians should all know that Jesus came into the world through the womb of a woman named “Mary” (Marriam). She was a virgin that had not yet known a man (Luke 1:34) when an angel of the LORD came to her with the news that she would have a son. I suppose she could have said “NO” but she said, “Be it unto me according to thy word” (Luke 1:38).
Can you imagine her thoughts and concerns with saying “YES”? She was engaged to man named Joseph and she could have been stoned if found to be pregnant before the marriage (Lev 20:10). If Joseph, her future engaged husband found out she was pregnant before the wedding he could have her stoned to death. He must have loved her and decided to consider “divorce” instead of her “death”. But God intervened and sent an angel to him so he would know this child was “the Son of God” and not from another human.
Think about that. Consider what would be said today on the internet if someone was claiming to be pregnant from the Holy Spirit and the claiming her child was the Son of God. Can you imagine the pressure to get an abortion today? What would they being saying about Mary today on social media? Can you imagine the wild rumors and gossiping that we could read about on the internet? What unimaginable pressure and bully words could you imagine being said about her?
Yet God trusted this woman named Mary and on the inside of her was formed “the Son of God”. Not a zygote, not an embryo, not a fetus, not a blob of tissue, NO HE WAS CALLED THE SON OF GOD even before birth. Think about that. Compare this with what you may be facing today. Let us move to another woman in the Bible named Eve.
I believe we should go back and examine the creation of woman to build a foundation for this subject of the womb. It interesting to learn from Genesis 2:22 what we can find in the original Hebrew when God takes a “woman” out of the side of the first created man Adam. The Hebrew word translated as “woman” is H802 and is transliterated as “ishshah”. The Hebrew word translated as “man” is H376 and is transliterated as “iysh”. God adds the “ah” sound which is the Hebrew letter “Hey” and this letter means “Behold” in ancient Hebrew. This would be like God saying “behold” or “wow” a different and new type of man. In fact, the English language uses a similar type of pattern of letter addition by adding “wo” to the front of the word “man”. It is noteworthy that “wo” can represent the shortened form for the word “womb” and thus a “woman” could be referred to as a “womb” “man”. In other words, Eve was created as a complimentary type or pattern of man (Adam) but with a “womb”. This caused her to have a specific type of miraculous “wow” factor in the eyes of God. This “womb” difference is our primary focus in this lesson about abortion and this may sound unusual. Yes, but this is where I believe the LORD led us today. Hopefully, we will understand better after we have studied the entire lesson.
There are two primary Hebrew words that are translated as “womb” in the Old Testament. The first word that we will focus upon is H990. It is most often translated as “womb” 31 times and 30 times as “belly”. It is interesting that this word is defined as a place that is hollow or empty. And this is the case for a woman that is NOT pregnant. There appears to be an implication given to us by God that He designed this specific location of the woman to be filled. Of course, most of us know how this happens between a husband and his wife. This infilling of the womb is a part of the physical nature that God designed to be pleasurable between a husband and his wife. Pleasure was not necessary for human reproduction. However, pleasure was a gift from God and does motivate the process. Evolutionists cannot explain the existence of beauty in a woman or the existence of pleasure in sexual reproduction. Neither are a requirement for the continuance of humanity. I guess it is an ignored topic. Let us get back on our subject of the womb.
From what we have learned so far in life and the Bible, we know that the womb was designed by God to be like a container that sits empty until it is filled. To better understand this important subject of the womb, we are now going to explore the ancient Hebrew Language. To be more specific we are going to use the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet used prior to the Babylonian captivity. This letters will help us to better understand the concepts chosen by God in His design for the woman’s womb. Here is a picture of these 22 Ancient Hebrew letters.
You may already know that the Hebrew language and alphabet reads right to left, which is the opposite of the left to right English language and alphabet. The first letter of the Hebrew alphabet is “alef” and the second letter is “beyt” and if we combine these two letters into one word, we get our English word “alphabet”. That Ancient Hebrew study is a remarkably interesting subject. This may be a new subject to many. Please note that we are not going to be able to go through the entire ancient Hebrew alphabet in this lesson. That would take us too long. But we will concentrate upon the specific letters found in our 2 key words translated as “womb”. These words will be H990 first and H7358 second.
This word H990 is “beten” and is spelled with three Hebrew letters a “Bet”, “Tet” and “Nun”. It might be interesting to some that the German word “beten” means “prayer”. That could be a message that we need to pray more for women’s decisions concerning their “womb”. God designed the Hebrew alphabet very intentionally with each letter in the alphabet having
- a form,
- a sound,
- a name,
- a meaning,
- a number
This is unlike the English alphabet that normally just has 1) a form and 2) a sound. The English alphabet does not generally contain a hidden meaning within the individual number order of the letter, the sound or the form or appearance of the letter. Let us move on to the specific Hebrew letters in the word H990 “beten” translated as “womb” to see what we have been missing.
The “Bet” in the ancient Hebrew is the 2nd letter in the alphabet and was designed in pictogram form to look like a tent floor plan with a door. It is like a remarkably simple modern architectural drawing for a home that is being built. A tent represented in Bible times the basic family dwelling place in one of two states. A tent can either be filled or empty or we could say that it is occupied or vacant. This basic dwelling place for the family represented a place of safety especially for sleep at night in Bible days. Every tent was designed with a door or entrance. The tent door was further designed as a two-way flap and it was intended to be both the entrance into and the exit from the dwelling place. In other words, there was only one designed way in and out of the dwelling place for the entire family. Our key words in this part of the Hebrew study is this letter represents “a safe tent dwelling for a family containing a door”. I pray that this information can be applied for us to see how it matches the pattern for the God created female “womb”.
We should also note that in Bible days a tent dwelling was normally made of skins. Skins can be cut with a sharp knife instrument to produce an emergency exit. Some in the medical field might call this a “C-Section” incision. “C-section” is short for “Cesarean Section”. It gets its name from Julius Caesar because some believe this was how he was born. Nevertheless, the concept of cutting the skin tent wall to get someone out is what is interesting to understand. This type of cutting of the skin of the tent dwelling was just an alternative emergency way to exit. These are just some of the meanings found within the first letter of the word that can be applied to the female womb. I am convinced this is why God chose this letter to begin this Hebrew word translated as “womb”? I know that this type of claim is not accepted by some people. But, I have become convinced that nothing in the Bible is there by accident or chance. Every little letter design was for a divine purpose.
The second letter of our word is the “Tet” and in ancient Hebrew it is the 9th letter in the Hebrew alphabet and is a pictogram that represents a basket. A round basket is remarkably like a tent because it too can be either full or empty with one opening on top to fill it with something or take something out. It is interesting that the normal basket shape is round and can also be a representative type of the general female womb shape and more specifically the fundamental female “egg” needed for conception. It is even more interesting to me that the female egg is like an empty basket container in its unfertilized state. It is this status of not being filled that allows the penetration of the male sperm cell to create a new human. Also, one basic Bible function for a basket was for the use of carrying bread, thus the term “breadbasket”. We can read about how Jesus multiplied a child’s lunch in Matthew 14:20 and after feeding 5000 men plus their families, there was 12 baskets of leftover bread pieces.
It is also interesting what people sometimes say when a woman is pregnant that she “has a bun in the oven”. That concept of bread and food making represents a key process of substance for one of the sources and supply of continued human life. Remember Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God”. Jesus also claimed to be the true bread that came down from heaven in John 6. I pray that you can see what Jesus was claiming with His coming through a womb.
Finally there are two concepts given to us between tents and baskets. First, we have a smaller basket found within a larger tent dwelling to keep the basket safe from exterior predators. This would be like the female ovum inside the womb that is also inside a safe space. The second concept found here is the idea of filling both an empty basket with bread or an empty tent with a person. Until bot are filled they are in an vacant state of existence. That brings us to the final Hebrew letter in the word “womb”. Notice even the order of each of the letters brings us meaning.
The third and last letter of the Hebrew word H990 is “Nun”. The Nun in the ancient Hebrew is the 14th letter of the alphabet and is a pictogram form that represents the image like a tadpole or sprouting seed. But, to be more specific and graphic it resembles the amazingly detailed picture of the male sperm cell which has a tail that enables it to swim up into the female empty basket (egg) that is inside the empty tent dwelling place to fertilize and produce the conception of a new family member. As soon as this occurs the dwelling and the basket inside are both filled.
This process of filling begins with the successful joining of 2 cells. When this occurs I have heard some scientists claim there is a “spark” of light that occurs. I believe this spark is God placing the spirit of the baby inside. This process creates a new human child that will continue to live in the female tent womb for approximately 9 months or 37 to 42 weeks or 259 to 294 days. The when this time is fulfilled, the child exits the tent door to be viewed by everyone in the natural world. Wow, how was it possible that this word was written in the Bible over 3500 years ago and it could describe the impregnation process to such amazingly accurate detail? There were no microscopes that many years ago. No one knew what a sperm cell or the female egg cell looked like. Yet we must conclude that God knew, and He communicated this detail to us so that we would be amazed today.
We have just discovered some deep hidden parts of the original Hebrew language and alphabet used to construct one Hebrew word H990 “beten” that many people may have never known existed. The Hebrew language was uniquely designed with picture like characters that described details that only the Creator would know and understand how to put together to reveal such amazing hidden details. Let us move on to the second Hebrew word that is often translated as “womb” to learn the additional hidden qualities that we need to understand about the female “womb”.
The second Hebrew word that is often translated as “womb” is H7358. This Hebrew word is transliterated as “rechem” and is also three Hebrew letters. It is spelled with a “resh”, a “chet” and a “mem”. Ok, we will begin with just a quick overview of the meaning of each of these letters.
A “resh” is a symbol of a man’s head. It is the first part of a human that appears during the normal birth process. However, the “resh” letter is designed as an image of a man’s head with a crown. That is interesting to say the least. When the normal birth process occurs for the baby’s exit from the internal female womb tent the process is described as the “crowning” of the baby’s head. Most people that have had a baby know that there are three main steps during a normal birth. These are the 1) dropping down or descent, 2) the rotation or turning and 3) the crowning phase before the exit. Wow is that amazing since the letter resh is wearing a crown. Do you recall what Jesus is called? Jesus is called the King of kings in Revelation 19:16. Could it be that this one of the main reasons why humans are being aborted today in such large numbers? Does the modern human have the potential to reign as a king in this life to defeat Satan’s plans? I believe it is true according to the Bible and we may talk more about this soon. Let us move to the next letter of the Hebrew word H7358.
The second Hebrew letter “chet” is a picture of a tent wall. It represents a separating barrier where being on the inside of the tent wall there should dwell peace and safety. This interior is in contrast to being outside where anything bad can attack or kill you. We could call the inside of the wall to be a realm of protection from external potential enemies. In other words, a wall was designed in Bible days as a separation barrier of protection from attack. A wall represents two opposing states of existence. The first is on the inside and is supposed to represent safety and on the outside is supposed to represent potential danger.
However, Satan has recently in the last years of human history reversed the meanings concerning the womb wall. Remember we talked about a tent with walls of skin in the first Hebrew word H990. All tent dwellings were designed and constructed with walls of skin. Even the first temple of God built by Moses from God’s designs, was a tent with walls of skins where He lived inside of skin walls. I believe all of this was patterns for the coming conception and birth of Jesus who came into the world to be our “King”. Remember when Jesus was crucified the veil inside of the temple was ripped from top to bottom signifying God’s exit from the temple. Let us move to the last Hebrew letter.
The last Hebrew letter “mem” in H7358 is the pictogram of water. Wow, a child in the womb is surrounded by water. When the child is ready to be delivered, the woman’s water breaks and this is one way she knows the time of exist has finally come. That is another amazing coincidence or NOT! I find it very interesting that the Word of God is likened to be “water”, and “seed” in the Bible and we have two of the main qualities of the Word of God being found in both of the ancient Hebrew spellings of two words that are translated as “womb”.
Finally, this letter can also represent “blood” as a liquid that is passed down from generation to generation. The family blood line comes from the father. These are all facts of reproduction and basic biology. But remember who was the Father of Jesus? It was God and therefore Jesus shed the blood of God on the cross to save us. Let us move on to what these words mean and represent in the God created childbirth process designed to produce new human life.
GOD’S ROOT DEFINITION FOR A WOMB
IS LOVE, MERCY AND COMPASSION
If we continue our study of the Hebrew word H7385, using a deeper research of the Hebrew definition from Strong’s and other dictionaries, we will discover the underlying foundation to this word is found in the essential divine concepts of “love”, “mercy”, and “compassion”. This root definition offers to help us to understand God’s designed purpose for creating a woman’s womb. A womb should be a place of walled inner peace and safety as we learned before but it should also be the object for great love that should come from the hearts of the mother and the father. Love should be the surrounding force around the child’s beginning and continued existence. Love is the key factor for that child being nurtured and fed within the (family tent) womb walls. One interesting fact about tent dwellings is that they are always temporary. This is true for the baby in the womb as well as for the human body in which our spirit lives for a short time here on the earth.
We learn about the root of love being within the womb by looking at the Hebrew word H7385 again. This word is translated “womb” 21 times and “matrix” 5 times in the KJV. By reading the Strong’s definition we find that it comes from the root Hebrew word H7355. The root word H7355 is “racham” and it is translated as “mercy” 32 times and “compassion” 8 times and is founded upon the divine gift and capacity to love. Wow, how many women feel real compassion for their child in their womb anymore? I know there are some great mothers in the world and lot of them allow a God type of love to be their focus on the inside of them during their pregnancies. Praise God for you if that is what you have experienced or are experiencing right now. But maybe you are struggling to know what to do. Maybe you do not feel loved and this reflection is being transferred down and placed upon your child in your womb? Let us look at a verse that helps us to see things as God sees them.
Isa 49:15 Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee
God is making a direct comparison to how a woman should think and act towards the son of her womb and how He will think and act concerning His people. God is strongly suggesting in these two comparisons, that they should be identical. Both should contain the same levels of mercy and love. Yet we know in a fallen world that many men and women are still capable of sinful acts that originate from wrong sinful thoughts and feelings. Still God is NOT capable of sin! God will not treat us the way some humans have treated their children. Thank you, God! The Hebrew word translated as “compassion” is H7355 the root word that we saw created the word H7385 for the filled female womb.
Notice how God structures this sentence in Isaiah 49. Shall she not have compassion (H7355) on the son of her womb (H990)? God uses the root for one of our “womb” words and the other word H990 directly for an empty “womb” that we studied at first. Remember the first word H990 was implied to be an empty tent dwelling with a two-way door. We can clearly see that the son that was inside the temporary safe womb tent (a home of love and compassion (H7358)) survived and is now at the mother’s breast feeding and her “womb” (H990) is again empty. Yet God implies that the level of her compassion for her son should be identical whether he was inside or out.
This is just a further confirmation that God views her son to be her son whether inside or outside the womb tent of safety. The only difference was that the son on the inside was fed by the umbilical cord of the mother and the same son on the outside was fed with the breast of the same mother. Wow, that is how God says He will treat us. Next, I am going to go through a very profound example of this type of love that a mother is supposed to have for her child. Let us please read Ezekiel 16 very closely and notice the contrasts of how God took an unwanted baby child and caused her to live and then loved her enough to show her equal compassion and mercy to care for her until she matured:
Eze 16:3 And say, So says the Lord Jehovah to Jerusalem, Your origin and your birth is of the land of Canaan. Your father was an Amorite, and your mother a Hittite.
Eze 16:4 And as for your birth, in the day you were born your navel was not cut, nor were you washed with water to cleanse you. And you were not salted, nor swaddled at all.
Eze 16:5 No eye pitied you, to do any of these to you, to have compassion on you. But you were thrown out into the open field, because your life was despised in the day that you were born.
Eze 16:6 And when I passed by you and saw you squirming in your blood, I said to you in your blood, Live! Yes, I said to you in your blood, Live!
Eze 16:7 I have caused you to multiply like the bud of the field, and you are grown, and you are great; and you come in the finest ornaments. Your breasts are formed, and hair is grown, yet you were naked and bare.
Eze 16:8 And I passed by you and looked on you, and, behold, your time was the time of love. And I spread my skirt over you and covered your nakedness. And I swore to you and entered into a covenant with you, says the Lord Jehovah. And you became Mine.
Eze 16:9 And I washed you with water; I washed away your blood from you, and I anointed you with oil.
Eze 16:10 I also clothed you with embroidered work, and I shod you with dugong sandals. And I wrapped you in fine linen, and I covered you with silk.
Eze 16:11 And I adorned you with ornaments, and I put bracelets on your hands and a chain on your neck.
Eze 16:12 And I put a ring on your nose, and earrings in your ears, and a beautiful crown on your head.
Eze 16:13 And you were adorned with gold and silver; and your clothing was of fine linen and silk and embroidered work. You ate fine flour and honey and oil; and you were exceedingly beautiful. And you advanced to regal estate.
Wow, I read this and almost cried. Think about what was just described by God our creator. He said to a little girl named Jerusalem in verse 3 “Your origin and birth was….”. God spoke to and about her and said that even before you were born, HE knew her origin. This would literally represent her conception. We know God is speaking figuratively to His Old Covenant wife, but everything in the Spirit realm still applies in the lesser natural realm as repeated patterns.
Verse 4 describes how God found her as an aborted child that was cast aside. A child that was not wanted by either her mother or her father. She was literally discarded in a field covered in her own blood not being cared for by her mother. However, God saw her potential even laying in her own blood and commanded her to live twice. Take notice of that statement. I believe this is what Christians should do to babies that are about to be aborted. See their potential in this world and speak to them and say “Live”. This is a basic way of God that He taught us to do in the Bible. For example, go and read Zechariah 4:7 where Zerubbabel was commanded to speak to the mountain that stood before him and call it level ground by shouting “Grace, Grace”! Let us see this as an example to learn to change our view of an unwanted children to see their potential for God’s plans to be fulfilled in their lives.
Verses 4 through 6, teach us of how bad of shape she was. Notice in verse 5 God described the heart of her mother towards the child. Her mother had no love for her. Therefore, it was not possible for her mother to show her any real pity to take her in and save her. There was no compassion for this child. It was as if her child was not human. God is describing the agenda of Satan that we can see happening called “late term abortion” and “infanticide”. Infanticide occurs after the child is born, where a woman can legally just throw them away after birth, as if they were a piece of trash. The depraved human heart leads to the absence of love which leads to the loss or departure of any pity, mercy, and compassion. The only God solution is to invite the Love of God in our hearts and He will help us to love them. When these divine qualities, morals and characteristics are not found within a growing level of humanity, there should be a loud outcry from those that have these qualities. Any child that is tossed in the trash could have been you. Why are we not thankful enough that it was not us to speak up for them and command them to “live”?
We need to be like God and act like Him with great love, mercy, and compassion to stop the killing of innocent, defenseless and voiceless human beings. We need to show the same level of love and mercy to help save these children, take care of these children, and help them grow and mature to what God wants them to become.
As you continue to read in Ezekiel with verses 7 through 13 you see the God kind of love being extended with great lovingkindness and tender mercies. She is blessed by God and grows up and matures and is given fine jewelry and clothing, etc. What a tremendous love our God had for this little girl laying in her own blood about to die. Where are the Christians that will stand up and do the same for the children today? Speak “Live” to them to help them to live and grow!
ENDING SATAN’S PLAN TO ABORT CHILDREN
There have been over 60 million abortions since 1973 in the U.S. and it does not sound like many Christians have given this enough consideration to make it a priority. It is time for Christians to unite in prayer and take a stand against this evil. We do not protest, we do not riot, we do not scream and yell at those that are doing this. But we must learn to come into agreement with God and allow Him to help us fix this crisis. If we do not doo this we will be judged someday for what is happening. Let me give you a couple of verses that apply to our situation:
Pro 24:11 Rescue captives condemned to death, and spare those staggering toward their slaughter.
Pro 24:12 When you say, “We didn’t know this,” won’t the one who weighs hearts take note of it? Won’t the one who guards your soul know it? Won’t he pay back people for what they do?
I quoted this verse from the God’s Word translation to help us to see what the LORD is trying to teach us today. God commands us to rescue captives condemned to death. That sounds exactly like a baby in the womb to me. The next phrase further confirms this by calling a slaughter and this word confirms the dismemberment in the procedure tearing their limbs from their body or sucking their brains out of their skull. God says for us to “rescue” these from this fate. Then in verse 12 God informs us that we cannot say “We didn’t know or understand” that He would hold us accountable for the murders that others were committing.
Christians should have a caring heart. We must not do nothing anymore. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal or natural. We do not fight this with our hand or our fist. We need to unite in prayer and repent for our passivity. We must repent and ask for forgiveness for all of the innocent blood that is crying out from the grounds of our nation. Like “Abel’s blood” that cried out in Genesis, these children’s blood have the same outcry that desire justice. But, we should plead for mercy because we have the “Blood of Jesus” that speaks better things for us (Heb 12:24). Besides praying we can do something else to put actions to our faith in God. God will always do what we cannot do, but what we CAN do, He will not override our inaction and non-participation. Christians must work in cooperation with Him.
We are living right now just before a monumental election in the U.S. It does not matter who you like or how you are registered to vote. It will only matter on judgment day who you voted for and if they stood for Biblical values and truths. Does your candidate support God’s “pro-life” agenda that aligns itself with the Bible? This is our essential part to work with God in solving the abortion issue. I recently heard that only 40% of Christians are even registered to vote. That is an evil work of deception taking place. It is your God given right and freedom to vote for people that will help the plan of God and promote His Biblical values. When you do not participate in this Satan is allowed to place his controlled leaders into office. It is Satan’s agenda to take everyone to hell by forcing you to take his mark. This is going to happen sooner than you think.
Read the political party platforms and then observe and research their past votes and actions. Ignore what they say to get elected! Most politicians say one thing to get elected and do something completely different after elected. Their stated party platforms (plans) and their actions on the record are all the proof and evidence that you need. Ask yourself, do their actions align with the thoughts and words of God almighty or Satan? Whose team are they on. What spirit are they working for or with? Please use discernment from the Holy Spirit and the Word of God to understand who to vote for.
Ask yourself will your candidate appoint judges to the Supreme court that are for a child’s death or their life? Never, in history has it become so clear the opposite extremes being offered as 2 choices in this election. Only one man has supported life and has already appointed 2 great pro-life judges. One more judge could change history and help get us back towards God. If you cannot tell the difference, please spend a lot of time in prayer and the Bible to get the mind of Christ before you vote.
We can already clearly see where in New York and Virginia how they have voted to allow abortions up to and including 9 months of pregnancy. These children in the womb are clearly able to survive if allowed to be born. But instead they are being permitted to be murdered. With modern technology in the medical field, children of only 22 weeks can survive a premature birth. This is amazing.
In2018, twins Keely and Kambry Ewold from Iowa survived after being born 22 weeks and 1 day. In April 2019, twins Everlei and Rylei survived being born 22 weeks and 2 days in the womb. What a blessing these children are to the world. What a testimony of modern capabilities to save life instead of to take life.
God is on the side of “life”. Let us stand with God and vote “PRO-LIFE” in 2020. This issue of Life should be every Christian’s number one priority. More than the economy. More than your desire for financial prosperity. More than your desire for a big house. More than your desire for new car. God promises us if we will seek first to advance His kingdom above all else all these other things will be added to us (Mat 6:33). But, please know that the only way God’s plan will be accomplished for life, is for you to vote!
Finally, I do not want to judge or condemn anyone that has had an abortion. If you feel the pain from this and have repented to plead the Blood of Jesus to cleanse you from this sin, it is gone as far as the east is from the west. I want to show you the same level of mercy that God showed to the little girl in Ezekiel 16. God can use what you have been through to help someone else and hopefully cause them not to go through it.
God bless you and please share this lesson with all of your friends and relatives. Sure, it might offend some and you might lose a friend. But that is how truth operates in the world. To some it will be eye opening and to others it will be offensive. However, the blood of these children being murdered will not be on your hands anymore. Thank you again and I love you and God loves you. If you would like to be brave and share your testimony with us on this subject, I know God will use you to be a blessing to a lot of people. GOD and I vote for LIFE, please join us.
Deu 30:19 I call on heaven and earth as witnesses today that I have offered you life or death, blessings or curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants will live.
(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!
If you would like to continue reading in this series please go to “Part 5” now.
(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.

(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.
