5 Reasons Abortion is not an Option!

Before I proceed with the write up for the day I will like to share a short story with you, it's an incredible story of forgiveness after a rape, and of choosing life for a child that was born out of violence.
After being raped by someone she had met once before and impregnated in her own home, Elise gave birth to a beautiful daughter that changed her life forever. Despite the rape and pregnancy, Elise experienced the grace of God through the gift of children and it enabled her to extended forgiveness towards her rapist. This is the redeeming power of Jesus Christ!
When Elise called out to God after finding out she was pregnant, He answered her. She felt strongly that although God did not want her to be raped, her child was a gift from God. “She has made my life SO beautiful,” she says. “She is a symbol of hope and inspiration, and what God can do if you let him.” Perhaps the most powerful part of Elise’s story is that she was able to forgive her rapist.
“He’s a sinner. I’m a sinner,” she says. “How can I not forgive? Not to say that it’s easy…but who am I to not forgive?” I remain astonished at Elise's story What beauty God can truly bring from the ashes of tragedy! Praise the Lord for Elise’s testimony and her daughter’s beautiful life!

5 Reasons Abortion is not an Option.

1. God's plan for each human life starts BEFORE birth.
Out of the beautiful pictures of this in the bible is when John the Baptist 'leaped inside of his mother's womb' when the news of Jesus was announced. The Bible gives countless examples of God's unique calling on a person's life before their birth.- Jeremiah 1:5.

2. Life begins at conception
Proverbs  23:22 Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.
Begat- to bring forth/generate.
The Bible alludes to this in many ways. The verse above referring to the father(not the mother) being the one who begat/gave life/generate/bring forth. "This is a direct reference to the moment of "conception being the start of life as opposed to the moment of birth"

3. Abortion is a murder
Abortion causes physical pains to the unborn child and it literally stops a beating heart. Even in the bible, the intentional/ unintentional killing f a foetus was a criminal offence.- In the Old Testament, causing the death/ serious injury of a pregnant mother/ an unborn child was punishable by death.- Exodus 21:22-23.
If you have had an abortion, please know that God loves you and He is for you. He desires to bring healing and hope to replace your pain. His grace is bigger than your biggest sins.

4.Every Life is precious to God
Psalms 139:13.
Abortion has become a way of selective breeding. we terminate lives who don't fit in our cultural preferences. For instance, children with 'Down syndrome' are aborted at an alarming rate. The Bible teaches us that God values the sanctity and beauty of every human life and we should do the same.

5. Its our responsibility to speak up for the unborn
Proverbs  31:8 Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.
We will each be held accountable by God for what we did/didn't do. When it comes to defending the rights of the unborn; valuing them equals valuing humanity itself. When we remain silent, we give a part of our humanity in the process.

Think about this; what if you had been aborted? What if I(that handsome picture you are seeing) had been aborted?

Please join me in the campaign against abortion and save a soul.

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

THE REVIVAL AND THE MOVES OF GOD

Genesis 2:4-6
[4]These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
[5]And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
[6]But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

God had not caused it to rain upon the earth because there was no man. God is helpless without a man and will never be able to send down His rain(move) on earth without a man.

Thus, there are two elements that makes up the move of God:
1. A man
2. Territories

What is the Move of God?
The move of God is God moving men through roles in His agenda which births events called Revivals.
A revelation of Alignment!

Kingdom advancement is territorial and not just personal. The value system of the kingdom must translate from you and be reflected in your…

THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN

Psalm 8:4-6
[4]What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
[5]For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
[6]Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet

Everything in heaven and on Earth was created for man but man cannot make use of it until he knows WHAT HE IS.

Heaven was never created for God. Heaven and Earth were created for man... But it takes a man who knows WHAT he is to accurately represent God on earth, because, man is meant to extend the fullness of God in the earth for God and so, in reality, God needs men!

We came from God; not heaven and we are returning to God through heaven!
1 Timothy 3:16
[16]And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

The Lord Jesus did all …

THE MINISTRIES OF MEN 2

Romans 11:29
[29] For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 

Notice the word "GIFTS" here is plural, while the word "CALLING" being singular.
There is only one calling!
There is no higher or lesser call than the other.

Although, this does not disregard the fact that there are some people specially reserved and set in the body as offices. This calling is to grow into the stature of the Christ.  It was the Lord who went down beyond and gave gifts unto men.

Remember, the Law of giving;
YOU CAN NOT GIVE WHAT YOU DO NOT HAVE!
And so, Christ himself being the embodiment of the 5-fold gave of himself. In following Christ, as you keep growing through into the template of the Christ - in maturity and stature, you will begin to experience the 5-fold (apostolic, prophetic, evangelical, pastoral, and teaching) ministry in your life.

The gifts are for all to profit withal, it is not the inheritance of any man.
We do not just have gift; we are all gifts and on the b…

SPIRITUAL INTERACTION 3

1 Corinthians 2:4-5
[4]And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
[5]That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

...the demonstration of the Spirit (fellowship) and of power (partnership)!
You become an able man(a man of the spirit) when you have these two. When you truly pay the price for fellowship, you cannot but experience partnership.

Download Spiritual Interaction 1 & 2 to understand fellowship and the levels in Intimacy(Koinonia)
Partnership is the ministry of the spirit not the ministry of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a Spirit and that makes Him part of the ministry of the spirit.

It is true that the Holy Spirit is the governor of all spirits but there are other spirits you will have to participate with to produce results. There are rankings in the spirit and spirits don't break their ranks!
