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.

KAIROS: THE MYSTERY OF TIME

At the very beginning of Jesus’ earthly ministry  Jesus tells of a great opportunity: God’s kingdom is within our reach. To enter the kingdom, however, we must go through a process of REPENTANCE and BELIEF.

Mark 1:14‭-‬15 KJV‬‬: Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Through this process we learn how:
-To lay down our lives
-Pick up the cross
-Follow Jesus into the kingdom

These three highlights aren’t steps but a circle that represents our Journey into the kingdom of God and time: the kairos moments in our lives which is the portal through which we enter into Kingdom living.

What is a Kairos Moment? 
A portal (access) through which we enter into dimensions of results. It is a moment and moments defines time just like seasons define destiny.
Eg: Jesus’ death on the cross was not a last-ditch effort on God’s  part …

BOLDNESS: the requirement for Servanthood.

While it is not scriptural to pray for faith,  you can ask God for boldness.
Very soon after the early church had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, we see them petition for it.
-It takes Boldness to dispense the anointing  NOT just faith.
Faith is used to receive not dispense(create) in the operations of the anointing.Though the gift of faith manifests boldness too.

HOW COME THAT IDIOT IS RICH AND I AM NOT?

Here is why..,
That idiot is had an encounter with the spirit realm, an encounter with the Spirit of God not mammon. He's firstly  sure who is master is as this is the secret to a lasting financial life and destiny.

.....for it is in the office of God by His Spirit to give you the power to make wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18 emphasis added) but you have to remember Him(God).

SERVANTHOOD

2 Peter 1:1 – Simon Peter,  a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ.
The Apostle Peter’s first letter was a message of encouragement, instruction and admonition to the Christians who were scattered throughout Asia minor.

Even though he was part of Jesus' inner circle and was a pillar in the early church , he opens his letter by calling himself a servant.



This shows you that it doesn’t matter how long you have been a Christian or how mightily the Lord used to,  you are always a servant.
