have you ever thought about what makes a crime a crime and where the judgement truly comes from?
And have you ever pondered upon your personal definition of criminal or crime?
What is it that you personally condemn?
Where do you draw the line between felony or misdemeanor?
Is it the same line the laws in your country draw?
Does GOD’s law play a role in your personal hierarchy or matrix of morals and ethics and crimes?
Me, I studied law many years ago.
The law systems made by humans (are they really?).
Long before I got saved and started to study GOD’S law.
And I didn’t even know much or almost nothing at all about GOD and JESUS when I went to uni, but I did know from the long, epic, old Hollywood Movies they kept showing around Easter that the Romans had crucified JESUS and I learned during my studies that the Romans also had created many of the laws or at least many of the principles which are still the foundation of many national law systems today…
It only occurred to me many, many years later, when I got saved, that many of the laws we have today or even the oldest systems of legal regulations stem from the Laws Moses was given by GOD in the Old Testament times, the 10 commandments.
So for me, it is no surprise today that a lot of which worldly legal systems have categorized as forbidden and have put a punishment on when trespassing is according to what GOD said that we should not do.
At the same time, it is also no surprise that the devil, who wants to rule the world and who wants to drag as many souls as he can to hell with him, is doing what he can to undermine, change, dilute, water down and if he can even to pervert these laws which are originally coming from GOD.
There are laws which make no sense and which are not made by GOD and the devil doesn’t have anything against them, I suppose, but the ones that are GODLY, he wants us to breach them.
He wants us to sin.
Can you see where I am headed?
Firstly, I want to talk about the one that says “thou shalt not kill” for instance.
This is serious.
I went to a conference the other day, the title was “Christians against crime” and there was a speaker who has a ministry that fights abortion.
Have you ever taken the time to think about this?
Me, I must admit that it had never really been on my priority list.
Personally, it has always been clear to me that I would never do it if I got pregnant, even though I wasn’t saved at the time and didn’t truly support the (other) radical views of conservative Christians, in fact, I was more on the liberal side, I used to think and believe that a woman should be responsible for her own decisions and life circumstances… without really thinking too deep about it, I even sort of believed that the statement “my body belongs to me” made sense somehow and I wouldn’t have condemned a woman who had had an abortion for whatever reason, I just knew that it wasn’t for me.
I knew that abortion would never be an option for me, but I also have not been in the situation when I had to decide to have or not have a baby, since I’ve never been pregnant.
Later, when I worked as a therapist, I came across many women who had had an abortion and I realized that this decision followed them for the rest of their lives – I hardly saw any other client group with more guilt in them, a guilt which never seemed to go away… they were hurting and trying to get over this all their lives it seems.
I pitied them and at the same time, I was grateful that I had never been in the situation and that I had not done this – and I knew that for some reason, it was a big mistake they had made and that there was something (which I in my New Age world considered a “spiritual law” or a “higher power” at the time) which was against them now, something which made sure that they did never, ever forget this and today, I know that it was GOD.
But even at the time I knew that there may never be a cure for them, nothing that could heal them from this guilt and from this old pain and that the mistake they had made was too severe for them to be able to become free from it.
The fact that they were suffering so much and so long after this, this confirmed my own impression and belief that it is wrong to have an abortion.
I didn’t know that this was already the HOLY SPIRIT teaching me that abortion is actually murder.
At this conference, we watched a film and we all cried or couldn’t even watch all of it.
In this film, they showed what “it” looked like what was removed from the wombs of the women who had an abortion.
And “it” didn’t look like “material” or whatever they call it, it looked like a very small human being!
Some of the fetuses were only 6 weeks old – they had hands and feet!
And a head!
They were NOT just a few cells, they were already a body, a human being!
The speaker said that science is not even denying that life begins with fertilization, that an embryo during these 12 weeks when it is still “legal” to abort it is already alive…
And what he also said is that the fetuses that are taken out of the women’s wombs are being sold as “baby parts”.
This is prohibited by law, but in the abortion clinics, they are encouraging the women to “donate” what is taken out of them and then, the fetal tissue, in reality the unborn babies, are being sold, I saw an article about it online (here) where they even posted a price list for baby parts.
Abortion is murder.
And what it also is is idolatry.
And that’s something only a few people are aware of.
I wasn’t aware of it.
In the old days, there were more blood sacrifices.
Even our ancestors sacrificed animals a lot.
So did the followers of ancient cults and they sacrificed animals and human beings to their idols.
There is even a story in the bible when GOD asked Abraham to sacrifice his only son Isaac to HIM and Abraham obeyed, only that in the last minute, GOD provided a ram instead.
The devil has never stopped demanding and receiving blood sacrifices though.
Not animals and not humans.
There are many ways he still gets what he is craving for: blood!
And one of them is abortion.
And he gets what he wants through what he always does:
You’ve read it here many times and you probably know it:
The thief cometh not, but for to kill, to steal and to destroy.
I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.
Dear friends, this is not the only way that the devil is getting his sacrifices.
There are so many people who not only die as unborn babies, but as children and adults.
And if we don’t sacrifice our children to the devil by aborting them, he will try to make us sacrifice them to him later – through our own ignorance. By not raising them in CHRIST, by letting them go astray, by hurting them and making them turn to the wrong places and people for help, for truth, for instruction even… and then, if they don’t die as babies or children, he may get them as adults – somehow…
ALL deaths which are not natural deaths because of old age are caused by the devil.
Murder is not from GOD.
Diseases are not from GOD.
Addictions which lead to death are not from GOD.
Suicide is not from GOD.
Violence and crime are not from GOD.
When a person dies because of sin or in sin and when they don’t know GOD and HIS forgiveness and HIS salvation, they are going to hell.
And the devil has them.
It is one thing if an adult sacrifices themselves through the choice of starting to take drugs or through the choice of taking their own life.
It’s not even a true choice.
It’s an evil spirit convincing them to do it.
If you look at it that way, you will understand so much more about evil spirits and spiritual warfare.
And about medicine.
Drugs are drugs, friends.
And believing in your doctor more than in GOD is also idolatry!
Or about “spirituality”, the so called “healing arts”, health-food even…
Whenever you are putting something or someone above OUR GOD, it has become your idol.
And the devil wants us to break GOD’s laws.
Even more so is it important that we, GOD’s children, are aware of all the ways the laws of GOD are being broken through human laws which are either against GOD’s law or which allow a person to breach what HE told us not to do.
Homosexual marriages, transgenderism… these are just extreme and very obvious examples.
Some things are allowed by mankind, but forbidden by GOD.
Who do you believe will have the final say?
Who do you believe you will have to face and answer to in the end?
But what about “we can do what we want”/ our life is our life/ our body is our body/ we are the highest authority in our life?
“Do what thou wilt” – the devil’s credo.
This is actually how everything starts.
Even how humanity’s fall started with Adam and Eve, by Eve doing what she wanted and what the serpent had told her, not what GOD had told her.
Make no mistake about it, friends.
Not only is your body not your body, but also your life is not YOUR life.
You are not your own.
Your life is not your own.
We all belong to GOD.
And everything else is the beginning of sacrifice to the devil himself.
Whoever believes he can be free and be the master of their own life, he or she is already lost and serving the kingdom of darkness – knowingly or unknowingly, that doesn’t make a difference, it doesn’t change the outcome.
1 Corinthians 6: 19-20
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.
Dear friends, we need to wake up.
Don’t get me wrong.
I believe that women who had an abortion can be forgiven by GOD.
But they can’t ask for what they do not know.
And the devil is laughing if they go to therapy for the rest of their lives and then not only do they not receive healing, but they also go to hell in the end…
Let’s watch out for these women, friends.
We don’t have to become involved in anti-abortion campaigns, I mean, it would be good and godly if we would, but we can serve GOD in many other ways and there may or may not be more pressing issues on our hearts.
BUT – we all know someone who has had an abortion – or perhaps someone who is planning to?
This is the woman who’s life we can change.
Or may I say who’s life GOD wants to change and we can help her.
And this is not all… we all know someone who believes in a false god.
We all have a muslim collegue, a neighbor who goes to a yoga class, a person we know from our grocery store who practices meditation, that family member who has become obsessed about living a vegan lifestyle…
They are all guilty of idolatry.
And guilty breaking GOD’s commandments.
Bound for hell.
They all need us.
Need the truth!
Please, my friend, whom can you save from going to hell today?
If you are reading this and have yourself not given your life to CHRIST yet, you can do so right now by saying this prayer (or using your own words):
“Dear Heavenly Father, I acknowledge and confess that I have not lived my life for YOU to this day, but have been living for myself and in sin and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need YOU in my life; I want YOU in my life.
I recognize the completed work of YOUR only begotten Son JESUS CHRIST in giving HIS life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart JESUS is LORD and that HE was raised from the dead and ask for YOUR forgiveness, which YOU have made freely available to me through this sacrifice.
Come into my life now, LORD!
Take up residence in my heart and be my KING, my LORD, and my SAVIOUR!
From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow YOU all the days of my life. Those days are in YOUR hands.
I ask this Jesus name.
If you have just prayed this prayer, welcome to the family, my dear brother or sister!
It would be good if you got a bible and started reading it as soon as you can (there are even bibles online for free) and if you looked for other, more mature believers, who can assist you and instruct you and for a local, bible believing church.
If you have any trouble finding one or any questions and don’t know where to turn, feel free to reach out to me via my contact form here on this site.
GOD bless you!
I hope and pray that this will inspire, heal and bless you. And that THE LORD will bless you abundantly in all areas of your life, that HE will keep you and shine HIS face upon you, and bring you peace. In JESUS’ name I pray. AMEN.
