In Genesis 1:1, God’s Word declares, "In the beginning "God."
The existence of God is fact. God is; God reigns; and He rules. Indeed,
Ps 19:1-THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD; AND THE (SKIES PROCLAIM THE WORK
OF HIS HANDS-NIV). It is written in Ro 1:20-THE INVISIBLE THINGS OF HIM FROM
THE CREATION OF THE WORLD ARE CLEARLY SEEN, BEING UNDERSTOOD BY THE THINGS THAT
ARE MADE, EVEN HIS ETERNAL POWER AND GODHEAD; SO THAT THEY ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE.
Gen 1:1,27,28-IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH. Gen 1:26-28-AND GOD SAID, LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE, AFTER OUR LIKENESS: AND LET THEM HAVE DOMINION OVER THE FISH OF THE SEA, AND OVER THE FOWL OF THE AIR, AND OVER THE CATTLE, AND OVER ALL THE EARTH, AND OVER EVERY CREEPING THING THAT CREEPETH UPON THE EARTH. SO GOD CREATED MAN IN HIS OWN IMAGE, IN THE IMAGE OF GOD CREATED HE HIM; MALE AND FEMALE CREATED HE THEM. AND GOD BLESSED THEM, AND GOD SAID UNTO THEM, BE FRUITFUL, AND MULTIPLY, AND REPLENISH THE EARTH, AND SUBDUE IT: AND HAVE DOMINION OVER THE FISH OF THE SEA, AND OVER THE FOWL OF THE AIR, AND OVER EVERY LIVING THING THAT MOVETH UPON THE EARTH. Note God’s command: BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY.
The Scriptures reveal to us that Jesus is the Word and He is God-ref Jn 1:1,14. Jesus is also Life-ref Jn 1:4, Jn 5:26; 5:40, 6:33, 6:35; 6:63. Jn 10:10 tells us-THE THIEF COMETH NOT, BUT FOR TO STEAL, AND TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY: I AM COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY. Again, we say, Jesus is life; however, Satan comes to kill and destroy.
In Genesis, God’s covenant of life rejects and condemns abortion. He commands BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY-Gen 1:28. The covenant of life is family. It is written: Ps 127:3-CHILDREN ARE AN HERITAGE OF THE LORD: AND THE FRUIT OF THE WOMB IS HIS REWARD. Man takes what God calls His reward and aborts it. It is written: Pv 17:6-CHILDREN'S CHILDREN ARE THE CROWN OF OLD MEN; AND THE GLORY OF CHILDREN ARE THEIR FATHERS. God’s covenant of life, of family, and of children rejects and condemns abortion.
America now protects (so-called endangered) turtle eggs, birds, and small animals but slaughters the fruit of the womb. A person can get fined for damaging endangered turtle eggs, but receives payment for killing unborn human babies.
In 1997, 1,184,758 abortions were reported to the CDC. The majority of the women were white and unmarried. This would average approximately 3,245 abortions every day in America. The total number of abortions in America from 1972 through 1999 was approximately 33,061,034, with 586,760 being reported in 1972. Throughout the world, the total number would be many times more. It is now legal to abort a baby in America through the 9th month of pregnancy (God forbid). The fruit of the womb is a human life. It is reported that medical science can detect life on the twelfth day. However, God ordains life the moment the sperm enters the egg. The fruit of the womb is a soul that God has ordained and knows.
It is written in Ex 21:22-23-IF MEN STRIVE, AND HURT A WOMAN WITH CHILD, SO THAT HER FRUIT DEPART FROM HER, AND YET NO MISCHIEF FOLLOW: HE SHALL BE SURELY PUNISHED, ACCORDING AS THE WOMAN'S HUSBAND WILL LAY UPON HIM; AND HE SHALL PAY AS THE JUDGES DETERMINE. AND IF ANY MISCHIEF FOLLOW, THEN THOU SHALT GIVE LIFE FOR LIFE. God calls the fruit of the womb LIFE.
It is written in 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. God knew Isaiah before he was ever born. He knew his name. God forbid, what if someone had tried to abort the prophet Isaiah?
It is written in Gen 25:21-26-AND ISAAC INTREATED THE LORD FOR HIS WIFE, BECAUSE SHE WAS BARREN: AND THE LORD WAS INTREATED OF HIM, AND REBEKAH HIS WIFE CONCEIVED. AND THE CHILDREN STRUGGLED TOGETHER WITHIN HER; AND SHE SAID, IF IT BE SO, WHY AM I THUS? AND SHE WENT TO INQUIRE OF THE LORD. AND THE LORD SAID UNTO HER, TWO NATIONS ARE IN THY WOMB, AND TWO MANNER OF PEOPLE SHALL BE SEPARATED FROM THY BOWELS; AND THE ONE PEOPLE SHALL BE STRONGER THAN THE OTHER PEOPLE; AND THE ELDER SHALL SERVE THE YOUNGER. AND WHEN HER DAYS TO BE DELIVERED WERE FULFILLED, BEHOLD, THERE WERE TWINS IN HER WOMB. AND THE FIRST CAME OUT RED, ALL OVER LIKE AN HAIRY GARMENT; AND THEY CALLED HIS NAME ESAU. AND AFTER THAT CAME HIS BROTHER OUT, AND HIS HAND TOOK HOLD ON ESAU'S HEEL; AND HIS NAME WAS CALLED JACOB: AND ISAAC WAS THREESCORE YEARS OLD WHEN SHE BARE THEM. God is in control. It is He that brings about conception. He knows the names of the fruit of the womb before they are born. They are living children. He knows each one's personality even before they are born. He knows the details of their life and what they will do. God forbid, what if someone had tried to abort Esau and Jacob?
It is written in Lk 1:13-17- BUT THE ANGEL SAID UNTO HIM, FEAR NOT, ZACHARIAS: FOR THY PRAYER IS HEARD; AND THY WIFE ELISABETH SHALL BEAR THEE A SON, AND THOU SHALT CALL HIS NAME JOHN. AND THOU SHALT HAVE JOY AND GLADNESS; AND MANY SHALL REJOICE AT HIS BIRTH. FOR HE SHALL BE GREAT IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD, AND SHALL DRINK NEITHER WINE NOR STRONG DRINK; AND HE SHALL BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST, EVEN FROM HIS MOTHER'S WOMB. AND MANY OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL SHALL HE TURN TO THE LORD THEIR GOD. AND HE SHALL GO BEFORE HIM IN THE SPIRIT AND POWER OF ELIAS, TO TURN THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS TO THE CHILDREN, AND THE DISOBEDIENT TO THE WISDOM OF THE JUST; TO MAKE READY A PEOPLE PREPARED FOR THE LORD. God did a miracle. He brought about the conception of John the Baptist. Even before Elizabeth had conceived, God knew about John the Baptist. He knew when he would be born. He knew his name. He knew about the child. He knew all about John’s life. Matthew’s Gospel said of John the Baptist: Mt 11:11-Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist…God forbid, what is someone had tried to abort John the Baptist? Lk 1:44-AND IT CAME TO PASS, THAT, WHEN ELISABETH HEARD THE SALUTATION OF MARY, THE BABE LEAPED IN HER WOMB. Does this mean that the fruit of Elizabeth’s womb was a meaningless mass of cells or was it life? It is clear that the fruit of her womb was a human life that was ordained of God.
It is written in Lk 1:26-32-AND IN THE SIXTH MONTH THE ANGEL GABRIEL WAS SENT FROM GOD UNTO A CITY OF GALILEE, NAMED NAZARETH, TO A VIRGIN ESPOUSED TO A MAN WHOSE NAME WAS JOSEPH, OF THE HOUSE OF DAVID; AND THE VIRGIN'S NAME WAS MARY. AND THE ANGEL CAME IN UNTO HER, AND SAID, HAIL, THOU THAT ART HIGHLY FAVOURED, THE LORD IS WITH THEE: BLESSED ART THOU AMONG WOMEN. AND WHEN SHE SAW HIM, SHE WAS TROUBLED AT HIS SAYING, AND CAST IN HER MIND WHAT MANNER OF SALUTATION THIS SHOULD BE. AND THE ANGEL SAID UNTO HER, FEAR NOT, MARY: FOR THOU HAST FOUND FAVOUR WITH GOD. AND, BEHOLD, THOU SHALT CONCEIVE IN THY WOMB, AND BRING FORTH A SON, AND SHALT CALL HIS NAME JESUS. HE SHALL BE GREAT, AND SHALL BE CALLED THE SON OF THE HIGHEST: AND THE LORD GOD SHALL GIVE UNTO HIM THE THRONE OF HIS FATHER DAVID. The angel is announcing the birth of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son. The coming of the Messiah was foretold back in Genesis 3:15. The miraculous conception, the name, childhood, adulthood, death, and resurrection of the Messiah was foreknown and foreordained of God. Jn 3:16-FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. God forbid, what if someone had tried to abort the Son of God? What if someone had tried to abort Mary, the mother of Jesus. What if someone had tried to abort "YOU."
Some would say that a woman has the right to do whatever she wants with her own body. Yet God says: 1 Cor 3:16, 17-KNOW YE NOT THAT (YOU) ARE (GOD’S TEMPLE), AND THAT THE SPIRIT OF GOD (LIVES) IN YOU? IF ANY MAN (DESTROYS) THE TEMPLE OF GOD (GOD WILL DESTROY HIM); FOR THE TEMPLE OF GOD IS HOLY (or sacred), (AND YOU ARE THAT TEMPLE-NIV). Nevertheless, the fruit of the womb that the woman carries is not her own body. Her body nourishes it, but it is a separate life. God knows the name of that infant and even his or her future. She may have authority from man to kill that separate life without being judged, but know this. It is written Heb 9:27-AND AS IT IS APPOINTED UNTO MEN ONCE TO DIE, BUT AFTER THIS THE JUDGMENT. Here is proof that the fruit of a woman's womb is not her own body. The genetic code of a woman’s body is the same whether it is an organ inside of her or outside, such as an eye. However, the fruit of the womb has a different genetic code than that of the mother. It is a separate life. If she aborts it, she is not killing part her own body, but is killing a totally separate and genetically different life. She is killing a human being that has been ordained of God with a life and a future of his or her own. It has been said that two people walk into an abortion clinic, but only one walks out alive. But consider this. Two walk into an abortion clinic, but both die—the one dies physically, and the other is dead spiritually. Something else worth considering. It has also been reported that many women, once they have had an abortion, afterwards suffer both physically and emotionally. At some later time in life, if that same woman wants a baby after she is married, she may have complications or not be able to have another.
It is written: Pv 6:16-17-THESE SIX THINGS DOTH THE LORD HATE: YEA, SEVEN ARE AN ABOMINATION UNTO HIM:…HANDS THAT SHED INNOCENT BLOOD. Yes, the mother that aborts that child, which is from God, will be judged at the judgment, but so shall all that are involved in man’s legalized murder.
It is written: Isa 10:1-WOE UNTO THEM THAT DECREE UNRIGHTEOUS DECREES (or make unjust laws), AND THAT WRITE GRIEVOUSNESS WHICH THEY HAVE PRESCRIBED (or to those who issue oppressive decrees-NIV). God’s Word gives a severe warning to all that would try to go against God’s laws. They may not believe in God, but the very God that they do not believe in will indeed judge them. Indeed, these very words shall judge him. It is written: Jn 12:48-HE THAT REJECTETH ME, AND RECEIVETH NOT MY WORDS, HATH ONE THAT JUDGETH HIM: THE WORD THAT I HAVE SPOKEN, THE SAME SHALL JUDGE HIM IN THE LAST DAY.
God’s Word and medical science have both proven that the fruit of the womb is a totally separate person from the mother. As already mentioned: Ps 127:3-CHILDREN ARE AN HERITAGE OF THE LORD: AND THE FRUIT OF THE WOMB IS HIS REWARD. It is part of God’s covenant of life. Consider carefully what God’s Word has said. It is written: Pv 3:7-8-BE NOT WISE IN THINE OWN EYES: FEAR THE LORD, AND DEPART FROM EVIL. IT SHALL BE HEALTH TO THY NAVEL, AND MARROW TO THY BONES. Pv 16:6-7…BY THE FEAR OF THE LORD MEN DEPART FROM EVIL. WHEN A MAN'S WAYS PLEASE THE LORD, HE MAKETH EVEN HIS ENEMIES TO BE AT PEACE WITH HIM. Pv 16:17-THE HIGHWAY OF THE UPRIGHT IS TO DEPART FROM EVIL: HE THAT KEEPETH HIS WAY PRESERVETH HIS SOUL. Lk 13:3-I TELL YOU, NAY: BUT, EXCEPT YE REPENT, YE SHALL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH.
Rev 3:18-20-I COUNSEL THEE…ANOINT THINE EYES WITH EYESALVE, THAT THOU MAYEST SEE. AS MANY AS I LOVE, I REBUKE AND CHASTEN: BE ZEALOUS THEREFORE, AND REPENT. BEHOLD, I STAND AT THE DOOR, AND KNOCK: IF ANY MAN HEAR MY VOICE, AND OPEN THE DOOR, I WILL COME IN TO HIM, AND WILL SUP WITH HIM, AND HE WITH ME.
If you are reading this and contemplating having an abortion—stop. Do not do it. If you have already done it, there is still hope. If you will repent and receive Jesus Christ by faith as your Lord and Savior, He will forgive you. Click on SALVATION, if you want to be saved. God loves you!
