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.

DID JOHN THE BAPTIST REALLY EAT INSECTS(LOCUST)?

His name was divinely given. It was to be “John” ( Luke 1:13 ), which derives from a Hebrew term signifying “Jehovah is gracious.” He was known familiarly as “ the Baptist ” (bearing no relation to the modern sect), which simply means “an immerser , one who administers the rite of immersion” ( Matthew. 3:1; 11:11; .. ). The Jewish historian Josephus even refers to John by this designation (Antiquities 18.5.2). The importance of John in the divine scheme of things probably is summed up best in the testimony of Jesus himself. “ Among them that are born of women there has not arisen a greater than John the Baptist ” ( Matthew 11:11 ). Luke does say of John: “ And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel ” ( Luke 1:80 ).  This desert (or deserted) area “stretches from Jerusalem and Bethlehem eastward some 20 miles down to the Jordan River and th e Dead Sea.” It is “a barren region of rugged hills and valleys” (Earle, 30

THE MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

Have you ever wondered why God will not honour the words of certain men and honour that of another? Have you ever thought about something  like this or experienced this: The Bible says ..... You shall lay your hands upon the sick and they will recover ( Mark 16:18b ). You laid your hands and instead of a recovery, you found a discovery – that the man is not healed and the sickness/disease has back-fired. This can be painful......  until a young man comes and at the sound of his voice, the infirmity flees. Has this ever bothered you? Or that a man speaks into existence instantly what you have been begging God for with fasting and prayers.   I bring you a mystery today!

HOW DO YOU AMAZE JESUS?

Today we want to scripturally study a man who did amaze Jesus. To amaze  someone is to fill the person with wonder/astonishment; greatly surprise. You can bet it will be such great things that will amaze Jesus right? Yes it should be. Someone amazed Jesus and it brought about his miracle.  In every day and aspects of our life, we also amaze Jesus but there’s always the others side of a coin. Let’s study:

GLORIFICATION

What is glorification according to the Bible? Glorification is the theological term used to describe the final removal of sin from the lives of Christians at the end of time. Dictionaries generally define glorification as a state of high or heightened honour. In biblical studies, however, glorification exists as one of three parts of the process of the Christian life that includes justification (being made right with God), sanctification (the ongoing process of being made holy), and glorification (the final removal of sin).
