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. Jer 1:5
The issue of abortion is neither political or partisan; it is purely good vs evil. There is no other way to see it. Child sacrifice in the old testament was common among the heathen. Today it continues in the more covert form of abortion. There are nefarious rumors (or truths) of infant organ harvesting and the drinking of their blood for the adrenochrome that it contains. The feeding of Baal or Molech via child sacrifice and abortion has been ongoing since the Exodus and probably much earlier than that. Agree or disagree, millions of babies have been murdered by abortion.
On June 24th, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe vs Wade, a federal or “Constitutional” law that protected a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion.. Now that power will go back to the states to decide if abortion will be allowed.
As Christians, let us remember this day as a monumental defeat for the enemy. Let us recognize the merciful hand of God was in this sweet victory and this brings up the next point of this post. In 2020, I often posted on what I thought was the coming justice and restoration of America. Since then it has only continued in a downward spiral and I along with some of you have probably wondered where God’s hand was in all of this evil that seemingly manifest exponentially day by day.
Yes we know we are living in the very last days, and yes we know evil waxes greater and greater, and yes we can see many prophecies lining up to be fulfilled, and yes the Tribulation will come after the Rapture, but I still have the HOPE the Lord will bring Justice and Restoration soon. Something impacting as large as Roe v Wade overturned, I believe, is the beginning of that Justice and Restoration we have all been waiting for. There is also the lingering question of who leaked the outcome of the Supreme Court’s decision before they announced it. Was it one of the Justice’s? Without that utmost trust that is required for the Court to operate efficiently, it must be restored. There is also the issue of restoring our election integrity. For if we cannot fix 2020, then how can we trust any future election.
In my opinion, God does not take one step forward like this only to take two steps back. Perhaps I am wrong about all of this, but we should all have that HOPE no matter what comes our way because HOPE is all we have. The Lord has commanded us to “live life” until He comes. That can be seen in the Parable of the Talent specifically in Luke 19:11-27. Part of that parable is below. The word “occupy” in the Greek means to be occupied in anything, to carry on in business as usual.
He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. Luk 19:12 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. Luk 19:13
Matthew 24:36-41 also tells us that life for the most part will be normal until the Rapture. That is not to say everything will be just peachy. Yes, the trials and hardships will continue, but life will carry on.
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
If the evil in this world continues at this pace, soon we will not be able to obey the commands of our Lord to Occupy till I come. That would contradict what the Word tells us. The church is still here along with the Holy Spirit. We are not defeated. God Wins; we know the ending already. To some of you who may be hurting and given up hope, I encourage you too know just where the Lord is:
And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man,…… And he had in his right hand seven stars:….. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death….. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches. Revelation 1:12-20
The word ‘angels’ in this passage refers to “a messenger, envoy, one who is sent, an angel, a messenger from God”, of the seven churches. Take comfort and HOPE from this passage knowing that Jesus walks in the midst of us and holds us messengers in His right hand!
