Two new babies, praise GOD! Thursday September 26th, 2002
Today we are going back to Genesis chapter one. We are going to take a closer look at what God said when He created the earth. Not to us, as it was really a conversation between God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. And as we, eavesdrop so to speak, I would like you to ask yourself a question.
How can anyone who claims to care about the earth, animals, trees or anything else on earth, be anything other than pro-life.
And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat:
and it was so. And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. (Genesis 1:21-31 ACPKJV)
As you read Genesis 1:21-31, you notice many things. God created all things, trees, fish, animals, whales, herbs, cats, dogs, baby seals, goldfish, elm trees, etc. Then He created man and woman, then He gave responsibility for all that He had created to man. Read again with me where God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, are talking to each other:
"Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." God the Father said to Jesus and the Holy Spirit, "Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness:"
Now, how do we know God was talking about man and not something else? Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with Child of the Holy Ghost. (Matthew 1:18)
Jesus was Born of a woman, a woman who got pregnant by the Holy Ghost and carried a child, the Child of the Holy Ghost, in her womb for nine months and then gave birth to a happy, healthy, perfect baby boy, not a dog, not a cat, not a tree, not a Martian, but a little baby boy.
Jesus, God, came to earth as a speck in the womb of His mother, not a grown up, not even an infant, but a speck in Mary's womb. God, who gave us dominion over everything He created, came to us as a speck in Mary's womb, a baby in the womb, Scripture refers to those in the womb, not as an unborn child, fetus or a glob of goo, but as a babe. Look here, listen in as Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist and Mary the mother of Jesus meet.
And Mary went into the hill country with haste, to a city in Judea; And entered into the house of her uncle Zacharias, and greeted her aunt Elisabeth.
And when Elisabeth heard the salutation from Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: and she spake out with a loud voice, and said, "Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb."
"And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy." (Taken from Luke 1:39-44)
In referring to John the Baptist, Scripture referred to him as "the babe", and as for the Lord Himself, Elizabeth said: "Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb."
So, yes, the God made us in His image and when He came to earth He proved it by coming as a man, a man by the name of Jesus.
So, as men, made in the image of God, men whom God gave dominion of the earth to, how can we who are saved, not care about this earth and it's creatures? But likewise, how can anyone who claims to care about anything placed under our dominion, not care about the baby in the womb? The future caretakers of the earth. How can anyone who cares about anything in or on the earth, or in the heavens, be any thing other than pro-life?
The other day I got an e-mail from Terry, a woman who says she is pro-abortion, I wonder if Terry has ever thanked God for her mother being pro-life.
Oh Lord God above, Creator of all things, I thank You for the lives of Crystal and Kelly, and I ask Thee Lord to be with them, to bless them and to guide them in Your ways. May their parents come to know You and to love You, may they come to realize that both these little bundles of joy were and are gifts to them from You. Lord I ask and pray that You will guard them and keep them from harm, from the evil one, his minions and his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly. That You will come into their lives and give them a saving knowledge of You, that You will let Your Holy Spirit dwell within them and bless them and the fruit of their wombs. And Lord, help them to stay chaste and pure, virgins till the day they marry the one You have chosen for them.
Just got this:
"Barbara, who is in her mid forties and has had diabetes for at least the past 30 years, unconscious on her living room floor. Barbara is now in a coma. The doctors have had an MRI performed that shows no damage, however they say there is a possibility of at least some brain damage."
And Lord, I ask that You will be with Barbara, her doctors and her family.
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
