The war on Abortion. [caution: strong imagery and words)
You can tell what is precious to God by the ferocity of the attack by the powers of darkness.
And when that child came,
Through Him, a new people emerged. Christians.
When Moses was born,
Through him, a new nation emerged. Israel.
Both times satan missed his target, but it was not for lack of trying.
His attacks were broad based, merciless and ferocious.
As Christians we must remember it is not flesh and blood we wrestle against. It is the satanic spiritual powers of darkness working through the masses of unredeemed people.
This is a spiritual war with no surrender and no compromise, and just as Moses sent spies to see what their Canaanite enemies were like, so we must know what our enemy is like.
Satan is described in many ways in scripture.
This sample should suffice.
Where Jesus came to bring LIFE - and that in abundance - satan comes to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.
What satan does is evil. There is no truth in him. No light.
However he is well able to masquerade his evil intents as light.
Thus so many unredeemed people see the mass abortion of unwanted babies as 'light'.
A quick check on scripture will confirm how God (literally) views life in the womb.
In the pregnant womb is the miracle of a living person, made - not in the image of a chimpanzee, nor even an angel - but bearing the image of God. (Genesis 1:26-27)
A living person with a spirit and a soul, encased within a rapidly developing body. (I Thessalonians 5:23)
A living person with unique DNA, unique fingerprints, unique eyes, unique personality. Even with unique toe and tongue prints.
A living person with dignity, value and worth equal to any adult walking the earth. Equal to the one writing this and equal to the one reading this.
You can also tell what is precious to God by the penalty He set for wounding, or worse, killing the object of His love.
God had already set the same penalty for an adult life.
Giving the cruelty of abortion sugar-sweet cover titles such as Women's Reproductive Health Care or Woman's Choice, does not mask the reality of murder in the womb.
Such public relation titles masquerading as 'light' to the world will never influence God, the very giver of life.
Abortion is the wilful and deliberate taking of a life in the womb, and when a nation legalises the wilful and deliberate taking of a life in the womb then the nation's invisible but very real city walls are broken down and the gates are burnt.
Spirits of murder are free to roam the streets.
The womb was always meant to be a safe place for new life to begin, and so in God's eyes - the only eyes that matter - those who for convenience sake hire someone to go into their womb and destroy that unique life will be held accountable by God for murder, as well as the person who actually commits that murder in the womb.
And no un-repentant murderer will ever enter heaven.
But outside of that, no.
As within every serious issue there are always extenuating circumstances where mercy must triumph over judgement.
There are always extenuating circumstances where the cold letter of the law does not reflect the compassionate heart behind it.
Abortion supporters often quote these genuinely difficult cases such as incest or rape, or to save the mother's life as their real heart on the matter.
This is whitewash to cover the real depth of the darkness.
Just 1% of women obtain an abortion because they became pregnant through rape, and less than 0.5 % do so because of incest, according to the Guttmacher Institute.
C. Everett Koop, U.S Surgeon General 1982-89 said,
An article on abortion on the BBC web site finished by stating,
Many think abortion is justified, even encouraged, to stop the world's population exploding out of control, but experts say the world is actually heading towards population collapse.
In such a collapse, the old will outnumber the young creating severe imbalances.
Economies will suffer. Some could even crash. Main infrastructures - such as financial systems and healthcare - could be negatively impacted.
Population Research Institute president Steven Mosher told lifesitenews,
Abortion has no moral light in it. It is darkness.
Satan has always inspired those under his sway to sacrifice infants to the false gods he provided nations with such a Baal-Molech, Chemosh, Astarte, Dagon, etc. He led them to believe that by doing so their lives would be better.
Hence the many times God left His people in no doubt how seriously He took killing their children.
Jesus perfectly reflected His Father's heart for 'the least of them.'
He especially mentioned the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the naked, the sick and the prisoner, saying,
Adding that those who mistreated such vulnerable people,
I think it is safe to say that the naked, helpless and vulnerable child in the womb comes under such a covering.
Romans who did not want their new born babies for any reason - such as economic, birth defects, gender, illegitimacy or 'evil omens' - abandoned their babies on hillsides outside the city.
The Encyclopedia of Ancient Christianity says,
After Constantine, laws began to protect these abandoned children, defending them as free persons.
Satanists believe that aborting and sacrificing new born babies gives them greater demonic power. [Caution advised: very strong evidence given in this extensive report to the U.S Dept of Justice] Think then, how much demonic power is being released as hundred's of thousands, indeed millions, are legally sacrificed on the altar of convenience every year.
Babies are conceived through sexual intercourse. All kinds of contraceptives are available, but in the current sexually permissible amoral culture, sex anywhere, anytime, anyhow has become fashionable, with the inevitable consequences being conveniently dealt with, whether disease by medicine, or pregnancy by abortion.
The facts speak for themselves. Today every third pregnancy in the UK is aborted.
Few people ever have, or ever will, see what happens within the womb during the murder. It is 'light' cleverly sanitised and marketed as cultural progress.
In these two videos former abortionist, Dr, Anthony Levatino, an Obstetrician-Gynecologist who has performed over 1200 abortions describes what happens in the 2nd and 3rd Trimester procedures.
When people were shown this video many immediately re-thought their previous pro-abortion stance.
A child killed by saline solution.
Which title fits best?
Slaughter of the innocents? Women's reproductive health? Pro-Choice.
More importantly, which title would God apply?
This is a 24 week old child that could legally have been aborted.
Imagine your horror if suddenly, in the image above, you saw his head being pulled off.
You would know you were seeing a pre-meditated, wilful and deliberate act of murder taking place.
But that's what happens within the unseen womb.
That's what God sees.
Planned Parenthood refers to itself as a 'Reproductive Health Care Provider' and under this 'caring' banner it carries out hundreds of thousands of abortions per year.
However, the dark underbelly of the world's largest abortion provider was dramatically brought into the light when pro-life advocates David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt went undercover and took a series of secret videos which shocked America.
The videos showed Planned Parenthood executives and workers haggling over the prices of baby body parts, picking through bloodied arms and legs of aborted babies in a pie tray, and discussing how to alter abortion methods to obtain better body parts for sale.
Despite repeated attempts to get the defendant's testimonies kept from the public during the court case, the full horror of the abortionists' work was revealed to all.
Into the full glare of international publicity came the exposure of selling beating baby hearts, intact heads and selected organs such as brain, heart, heart with veins and arteries attached, liver and sinus.
Whistleblower Dean Alberty worked inside the Planned Parenthood abortion center as a fetal tissue procurer for a company called Opening Lines. He spoke of receiving aborted babies intact and of “cutting open the chest and seeing the heart was still beating.”
He testified that at one point the abortion doctor brought him 24-week-old twins born alive after a failed abortion in Kansas City. When Alberty said he did not want to harvest organs from living children, the abortionist then “drowned them in a pan,”
Abby Johnson was a star employee with Planned Parenthood, but had never witnessed an abortion. One day a she passed by a surgery room she was asked to step inside and assist in an abortion. This was her first time watching the procedure on an ultrasound.
In the end, the baby lost the battle and Abby promised herself that she would never again participate in this procedure.
Two weeks later, Abby quit her job, walked out of the clinic and joined the pro-life members of Coalition for Life, a group that held prayer vigils outside the clinic where Abby used to work.
The 2019 film 'Unplanned' was made telling her story.
Abortion supporters tried vigorously to stop cinemas showing the film, and nearly succeeded. Some TV channels refused to air ads for the film due to its subject matter. Despite the controversy and a limited promotional campaign, the film was a moderate box office success and quickly grossed $19 million on a $6 million budget.
Now out on DVD it has become a major pro-life witness.
Television producers love to show in-depth documentaries on real life issues. They have often shown major surgery in close up detail.
But no secular producer has dared to produce an in-depth documentary on what actually happens on the real life issues inside the womb during an abortion.
They instinctively know that if people saw what happens to the living child inside the womb, then that remnant spark of righteousness within us all would likely respond.
And the powers of darkness do not want that.
That would show that this new 'light' was darkness masquerading as light.
I will finish with a quote from Mother Theresa. She said,
Twitter and Facebook banned the quote, but at a US Senate Subcommitte hearing they could not explain why.
She also said,
And that sums the issue up perfectly.
