A look at the sad case of abortion as a sole option for pregnant girls and women.
The Blood of the Innocent
By Andy Smith.
In these days when so many people have turned their backs on the Creator, Almighty God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, more and more governments are legalizing and allowing, and even urging people to use abortion clinics as a “legal” means of killing their innocent unborn children.
Some have said that the most dangerous place to be is in South America, or Africa or perhaps in space, but for all intents and purposes, the most dangerous place to be; is in the womb.
I have heard it said that it is estimated that 40 000 000 [forty million] abortions have taken place in the United States of America during the past 30 years. That is enough people to almost populate a country such as Ghana twice over. What would happen if someone stepped in and killed every person in a country of 40 million?? It will be called genocide, but because it is persons unknown [to us]; more than a million unborn, living babies are killed in the womb every year in the USA alone [estimated]. Be patient and read with me what the Word of God has to say about this ungodly practice.
Cane and Abel both made a sacrificial offering to Father God. Cain offered some of his crops and fruit as he farmed with crops; while Abel offered a sheep lamb as he was a farmer of sheep. The Word says that God accepted the offering from Abel [as He saw the Blood offering] but the sacrifice of Cain He rejected, and Cain was very upset about that. Cain took Abel into the countryside as he planned to harm Abel. The Word says:
Genesis 4:8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
4:9 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?
Genesis 4:10 And He said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.
11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;
What this all means is that God knows when life is ended for the “blood cries out to Him”, and therefore lets the Father know of such things.
Many years later as the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness while on their way to the promised land, God commanded them NOT to eat or drink blood of any animal or human, as “the life of the flesh is in the blood”. It has long been recognized that there is more to blood than meets the eye. Just recently it has been documented that if blood were to be replaced by some other fluid capable of carrying oxygen to the brain, there would still be no “life” in the body. It was also mentioned that the blood contains the capabilities to control certain functions of the body, including the brain’s thinking process. Listen to what God said:-
Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
12 Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood.
13 And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust.
14 For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.
There have been many Pagan cultures, communities, religions and cults through the ages. Most of the countries around the ancient land of Israel, practiced Pagan rituals where human sacrifice took place, and more often than not, young children and even babies were sacrificed to Pagan gods like to trees, the moon or sun or other idles. God instructed people NOT to harm or kill innocent babies and children, as some of these nations did.
Leviticus 18:21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.
22 Thou [man] shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.
24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
26 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)
So what does the Word of God tell us about governments and religions that allow the abortion of babies?? What shall we say then about mothers that allow their children to be murdered within their own bodies??
There is special mention in the Word which warns folk not to harm unborn babies. There is specific punishments mentioned if someone harms or kills an unborn baby. Read what God says about hurting unborn babies. He says if it was an accident then some sort of recompense should be made by the one causing the harm, but if it was not an accident and the harm was intentional, then there is physical punishment ordered.
Exodus 21:22 ¶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.
23 And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,
24 Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
25 Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe
Almighty God knows us all from before we are born. See what God said about Isaiah and Jeremiah. Of Isaiah it is said God made mention of his name and called him while he was in his mother’s womb. Of Jeremiah, God said He knew him and ordered him to be a prophet before He formed him in his mothers womb. This means that from before conception, before copulation, the baby that is formed is already known to God and therefore is already a person and therefore it is murder to kill that baby in the womb. Read here what God said:-
Isaiah 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.
2 And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me;
Jeremiah 1:4 ¶Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
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.
Many months before John the Baptist’s mother became pregnant with him, God sent Gabriel the angel to his father to tell him that he would be the father of John. Again, God knew John before he was conceived, therefore a person at conception and was filled with the Holy Ghost while still in his mother’s womb.
Luke 1:14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.
15 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.
Regarding the father of Jacob [whose name was later changed to Israel] God knew there were two babies in his mothers womb and knew who they were before she became pregnant. One of those nations is Israel. If Rebekah had aborted those babies, then those two nations would not exist to-day; but they do.
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.
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.
23 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.
1 Corinthians 6:19
God says we are the temple of the Holy Ghost so therefore we should not kill His temple, but should have respect for our bodies,, Take note mothers who intend killing babies in the womb .
1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
So here it is very clearly stated for governments and principalities , including those who vote for abortion practices, also those that perform such procedures:- You will be punished.
Isaiah 10:1 ¶Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed;
2 To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!
3 And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory?
There is One who died for us on the cross at Calvary. He came that we all [including the unborn babies] may have life; not death
John 10:10 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.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
In closing, we must realize that we are not only bringing God’s wrath against us as individuals, we are also causing a lot of harm to our economies. Consider that for instance, the USA has been killing a lot of babies in the womb [as so many other nations are doing] so as the nations average age gets older so there are fewer young ones to keep the economy going and less individuals paying taxes so therefore less to carry the burden of pension and welfare etc etc.
Believe me when I say it is a sin, a crying shame on the head of each nation passing laws which provide for abortion.
STOP ABORTION NOW and save lives and save yourself from eternal damnation.
