Reality Isn't What You See

Reality Isn't What You See
by David Brenneman 

"You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he tells a lie, he speaks from his own nature, because he is a liar and the father of lies." John 8:44 NASB 

Just as you do not know the path of the wind, and how bones are formed in the womb of the pregnant woman, so you do not know the activity of God who makes everything. Ecclesiastes 11:5

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
And before you were born I consecrated you;
I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

For You created my innermost parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
I will give thanks to You, because I am awesomely and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from You
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully formed in the depths of the earth;

Psalm 139:13-14 

What does the Bible say about the topic of today's world concerning the unborn?  

Jesus is the Author of Life.  He's the Creator God we see in the book of Genesis. 

We read in even these few passages concerning the nature of evil...which is to destroy life.  

The Ten Commandments were incorrectly translated concerning Thou Shalt not kill. It correctly is translated Thou Shalt not Murder.  All the Kings of Judah and Israel were sent to kill those God had judged against. So it's an additional impossibility that it translated to kill versus murder.

Jesus plainly stated the intent of the Jewish Leaders, of how they followed their Father, the Devil.  Jesus states just what Satan is like.

Satan's aim is to destroy what is precious to God. He's so deranged in his thinking that should someone not be murdered in the womb, his aim is to get them to never find their way to salvation in Christ Jesus. 
His aim is to receive the worship due God for himself.  

We wonder why nations have troubles, it's everything to do with their level of obedience to God's Word.  Not necessarily as a nation but those within who are claiming that they are Believers, followers of Jesus Christ. 

It's an easy observation that those who were given the chance to live by being born will either become Christians or not. 

It's another easy observation that those who were given the chance to live often ironically wish to take away the same right from others. 

It's insanity that mankind often shows far greater compassion for animals and creatures of the sea than they do humanity.  Look back at what we just spoke of concerning Satan.  He cares not about those living things that cannot worship him. 

You face life, but do you face it in regards of honoring God or self? Self can and only will live for the sin nature within.  A Believer is to live to please God.

Christians are often hated by Satan because God's promises are manifested in them. His protection is revealed in those who claim the name of Jesus.  He has no direct authority to destroy the life of a Believer. All Authority rests with Jesus Christ.  As we read in the book of Job, Satan must get permission to do anything to those who live for God. 

The reality is there is a centuries spanning war that's truly between good and evil.  Between God and Satan.  Satan is a fallen created being. He is absolutely no match for God.  

We read the most popular verse of the Bible and read the value of mankind.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.  John 3:16.

The world is everyone who was given the opportunity to be conceived.  All.

We must value what God values. God values life. He valued it so much that He sent Jesus to die for all mankind.  

He died even for those who would reject Him...He didn't do this for the Angels only for mankind.  

A living breathing person has the choice to come to Christ for salvation or not. A dead person has no chance at that choice.  I firmly believe that there is an age of accountability towards the knowledge of sin and its ramifications.  Those under this age I again firmly believe go straight to Heaven.  Those murdered in the womb go right back to God.  

This war that has been going on for centuries is soon coming to a head. Once the command of God the Father is given, Jesus will return. 1,007 years later all who rejected Him will be judged.  Those who have not received Christ Jesus for salvation will be judged solely upon the deeds of their lives...and be shown their names were not written down in the Book of Life.  There's many warnings concerning the judgment to come for those who intentionally lead people astray into sin and sinful ways. To teach people that it's ok to murderer the innocent in the womb is to incur the wrath of God. Jesus eludes much to this when the subject of misleading children came up.

Matthew 18:1-14 NASB "At that time the disciples came to Jesus and said, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And He called a child to Himself and set him among them, and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you change and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. So whoever will humble himself like this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever receives one such child in My name, receives Me; but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it is better for him that a heavy millstone be hung around his neck, and that he be drowned in the depths of the sea.

“Woe to the world because of its stumbling blocks! For it is inevitable that stumbling blocks come; but woe to the person through whom the stumbling block comes!

“And if your hand or your foot is causing you to sin, cut it off and throw it away from you; it is better for you to enter life maimed or without a foot, than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into the eternal fire. And if your eye is causing you to sin, tear it out and throw it away from you. It is better for you to enter life with one eye, than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fiery hell.

“See that you do not look down on one of these little ones; for I say to you that their angels in heaven continually see the face of My Father who is in heaven."

“What do you think? If any man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains, and go and search for the one that is lost? And if it turns out that he finds it, truly I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that have not gone astray. So it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven for one of these little ones to perish."

This means every teaching by anyone from abortion to claiming other things in even God's name such as women preachers or pastors.  There's great warnings concerning false teachers in the New Testament. 

Maybe this answers the questions that I have been given concerning this topic or at the very least it may provoke thoughts that the evils you see in this world have a face behind them.  

God indeed is the God of all comfort...He comforts millions of unborn children every moment that they arrive in Heaven, loving them when this world rejected them.  

There's a part 2 on my blog. It would be banned on Facebook.
