Blessings of God that affect the
Gen. 29:31 "Now the
Lord saw that Leah was unloved, and He opened her womb..."
Gen. 30:22 "Then God
remembered Rachel, and God gave heed to her and opened her womb."
Gen. 49:25 - This is part of
Jacob's blessing to his son Joseph. "...And by the Almighty who blesses
you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies beneath,
blessings of the breasts and of the womb..."
Exodus 23:26 - If the
Israelites obeyed the voice of God (v.22), "There shall be no one
miscarrying or barren in the land..."
Deut. 7:13 "And He
will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of
"...If you will diligently obey the Lord your God... all these
blessings shall come upon you... the fruit of your womb will be blessed..."
"...the Lord will grant you abundant prosperity in the fruit of
Because of repentance and obedience to God's commandments (vs.1‑8),
"Then the Lord your God will make you most prosperous in all the work of
your hands and in the fruit of your womb..."
"Behold, children are a gift of the Lord; the fruit of the womb
is a reward."
of God that affect the womb:
Abraham said of Sarah his wife, "She is my sister,"
afraid that Abimilech, king of Gerar would kill him. "Then Abimelech
called Abraham and said to him, `What have you done to us?
And how have I sinned against you, that you have brought on me and my kingdom a
great sin? You have done to me things that ought not to be done" (v.9).
The sins of God's people affected
the wombs of those whose land they were in. "And Abraham prayed to God;
and God healed Abimelech and his wife and his maids, so that they bore children.
For the Lord had closed fast all the wombs of the household of Abimelech because
of Sarah, Abraham's wife" (v.17‑18).
Lev. 26:2, A curse of the
Lord on His people for their disobedience. "And I will let loose among
you the beasts of the field, which shall bereave you of your children." The
beasts of Hell are loose!
Deut. 28:18, Another curse of
the Lord on His people for disobedience is that "the fruit of your womb
will be cursed..."
Hosea 9:10-17, Israel was
harshly judged by the Lord due to her harlotry in forsaking the Lord and going
after other gods. The Lord said that they would have "no birth, no
pregnancy, and no conception... give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts...
even though they bear children, I will slay the precious ones of their womb."
Hosea 13:16, Further judgment
from the Lord where He says, "...their little ones will be dashed in
pieces, and their pregnant women will be ripped open."
the sin of God's people affect others around us?
Gen. 12:9-20, This is the
other account of Abraham calling Sarah his sister and the consequences of it on
Pharaoh and his house. "But the Lord struck Pharaoh and his house with
great plagues because of Sarai, Abram's wife. Then Pharaoh called Abram and
said, `What is this you have done to me?" (vs.17-18)
2 Samuel 12, In this passage
Nathan the prophet confronts David with his sin of adultery with Bathsheba.
Because of it, the Lord judged David, telling Him, "the sword shall
never depart from your house, because you have despised Me... I will raise up
evil against you from your own household..." The Lord also struck the child
and he died.
2 Samuel 24, David sinned
against the Lord by numbering the people. "So the Lord sent a pestilence
upon Israel.. 70,000 men of the people from Dan to Beersheba died" (vs.
15). The scriptures go on to say that "David spoke to the Lord when he
saw the angel who was striking down the people, and said, `Behold, it is I who
have sinned, and it is I who have done wrong, but these sheep, what have they
done?" David then built an altar to the Lord and "the Lord was
moved by entreaty for the land, and the plague was held back from Israel."
(See 2 Samuel 21:14)
Jonah 1, Jonah's disobedience
to God's command put the men who were in the ship with him in great danger. When
they found out that the great storm was because he was fleeing from the presence
of the Lord they said to him in vs.11, "What should we do to you that
the sea may become calm for us?" Jonah replied to them, "Pick
me up and throw me into the sea. Then the sea will become calm for you, for I
know that on account of me this great storm has come upon you."
In a day when many in the
church cry out for "justice to be served", and for people to be
"held accountable for their actions", it's time for us, the church, to
repent of our own hypocrisy. The Lord is pointing His holy finger at us as the
prophet Nathan did to David and cried out, "You are the man!"
Is this plague of abortion that is upon us today a direct reaction to the action
of our sin? The world is asking us, "What have you done to us?"
We must repent and deal with the sin that is in the camp. If we will humble
ourselves and pray, and seek the Lord's face and turn from our wicked ways
because of the plague the Lord has sent amongst us, then He has promised us that
He will "hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their
land" (2 Chron. 7:13-14). The scriptures are clear.
Dealing with sin in the camp,
Joshua 7: The Israelites had just come from a great defeat at Jericho and were
moving on to their next enemy. It was the small town of Ai. After spying out the
land, they told Joshua in vs.3, "Do not let all the people go up, only
about two or three thousand men need go up to Ai; do not make all the people
toil up there, for they are few." It goes on to say that when they came
up against them to fight that they fled from them and 36 Israelites were killed.
When Joshua found out, he immediately formed a committee on forming a better
plan of attack and then presented it to the congregation who then voted on it.
Of course that is not really what happened. That would be foolish. So why do we
do that today? The answer is because we now seek the wisdom of men before the
counsel of God.
We don't understand the
connection between the lack of power against an enemy and the sin in our midst.
Joshua didn't consult with other men about the problem, but fell on his face
before God to find out why this had happened. The Lord answered him in vs.10-13.
The Lord told Joshua that "Israel has sinned, and they have also
transgressed My covenant which I commanded them. And they have even taken some
of the things under the ban and have both stolen and deceived. Moreover, they
have also put them among their own things. Therefore the sons of Israel cannot
stand before their enemies... they have become accursed. I will not be with you
anymore unless you destroy the things under the ban from your midst."
At the beginning of this
account in Chapter 7, vs.1 tells us
that "the sons of Israel acted unfaithfully in regard to the things
under the ban, for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah,
from the tribe of Judah, took some of the things under the ban, therefore the
anger of the Lord burned against the sons of Israel." In their conquest
of Jericho the Lord had specifically told His people in Joshua 6:17-18, "And
the city shall be under the ban, it and all that is in it belongs to the Lord...
but as for you, only keep yourselves from the things under the ban, lest you
covet them and take some of the things under the ban, so you would make the camp
of Israel accursed and bring trouble on it." One man's sin affected the
entire camp. It cost the lives of 36 men who were killed battling Ai. It would
cost more than that as we will soon see. Moses had warned the people back in
Deut. 23:9 & 14, "When you go out as an army against your enemies,
then you shall keep yourself from every evil thing... since the Lord your God
walks in the midst of your camp to deliver you and to defeat your enemies before
you, therefore your camp must be holy; and He must not see anything indecent
among you lest He turn away from you."
Before I go any further, I
would like to briefly discuss the phrase "things under the ban". I
kept seeing it as I read my N.A.S. version of the bible. The N.I.V. interprets
it as "things devoted to destruction" or "condemned things."
The King James calls them "accursed things." The Hebrew term for these
interpretations refers to the irrevocable giving over of things or persons to
the Lord, often by totally destroying them. God's people were not to take these
things for themselves because they came with a curse. Deut. 7:26 says, "And
you shall not bring an abomination into your house, and like it come under the
ban..." In Deut. 13:17 Moses told the Israelites, "And nothing
from that which is put under the ban shall cling to your hand, in order that the
Lord may turn from His burning anger and show mercy to you, and have compassion
on you and make you increase..." To bring things under the ban into
your midst means certain judgment from God on you and others around you. (See
Lev. 27: 28-29, Deut. 2:34 and 3:6, 1 Samuel 15:9, 1 Cor. 16:22)
The Lord told Joshua to bring
all the Israelites near, man by man, "and it shall be that the one taken
with the things under the ban shall be burned with fire, he and all that belongs
to him, because he has transgressed the covenant of the Lord, and because he has
committed a disgraceful thing in Israel" (vs.l5). Joshua then brought
all the tribes before the Lord, family by family, man by man, until Achan was
singled out. Do you know that the Lord is doing that very thing today?! Judgment
begins in the house of the Lord. He is sifting His people and the chaff is being
removed. The tares are being separated from the wheat and bundled up together
for the fire (Math. 13:24-30). God is calling His true bride out from the
Babylonian, harlot church of Revelation 17 who is selling itself out by going
after other gods, warning them, "Come out of her, My people, that you
may not participate in her sins and that you may not receive of her plagues, for
her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her
iniquities... give back to her double according to her deeds... to the degree
that she has glorified herself (who
are we glorifying in our lives? Take a good hard look!) and lived sensuously,
to the same degree give her torment and mourning (remember who God said
would also receive of this torment unless they came out) for she says in her
heart, `I sit as a Queen and I am not a widow, and will never see mourning
(the Queen sat in a place of ruling authority also, below the King. So do we
with Christ. We say today, "I am a Christian, I am protected even though I
now sit on the throne of my heart. Nothing will happen to me. I'll be raptured
away from Christ's coming again in judgment.) She will be burned up with fire
for the Lord God who judges her is strong" (Rev. 18:4-8).
This is what happened to Achan. God says if we, His people, do not
repent, this is what will happen to us! A similar passage is found in Isaiah
47:7-11 where it says, "... you said, `I shall be a queen forever'...
Now then, hear this you sensual one, who dwells securely (which is actually
a false sense of security) who says in your heart, `I am (that is God's
name alone! See Isaiah 46:9 which is right before this passage.), and there
is no one besides me, I shall not sit as a widow (meaning, "I will not
lose my husband, Christ.) nor shall I know loss of children... and disaster
will fall on you for which you cannot atone, and destruction about which you do
not know will come on you suddenly."
Achan's sin had now been
exposed by the Lord, just as ours will be. He confessed in vs.21, "When
I saw among the spoil a beautiful mantle from Shinar (N.K.J.V., A beautiful
Babylonian garment; We must not keep anything that belongs to Babylon, it has
been put under the ban!) and two hundred shekels of silver and a bar of gold
fifty shekels in weight, then I coveted them and took them; and behold, they are
concealed in the earth inside my tent with the silver underneath it."
What things under the ban have we coveted and taken, hiding them within our
earthly tents. May we act like the messengers Joshua sent and run to get these
things within our hearts to pour them out before the Lord. Joshua and all Israel
then took Achan and all that belonged to him, including his sons and daughters,
up to the valley of Achor, which means "the valley of trouble". In
vs.25-26 Joshua said, "Why have you troubled us? The Lord will trouble
you this day.' And all Israel stoned them with stones; and they burned them with
fire after they had stoned them with stones. And they raised over him a great
heap of stones that stands to this day, and the Lord turned from the fierceness
of His anger. Therefore the name of that place has been called the valley of
Achor to this day."
We as God's people must cry
out to God like David in Psalms 139:23-24 and say, "Search me, O God,
and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts; and if there be any
hurtful way (or way of pain) in me, and lead me in the everlasting
way." There was a similar prayer laid out before the Lord from a man
named Jabez in 1 Chron.4:9-10. It says that "Jabez was more honorable
than his brothers... And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, `Oh that
thou wouldst bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be
with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me
(or cause me pain)!' And God granted him that which he requested."
As we bring out the things that the Lord reveals through His Holy Spirit that
are concealed within us, and lay them out before the Lord on His altar, His fire
will fall and consume them. This is why the Lord said in Hosea 2:15 to
unfaithful Israel that He would make "the valley of Achor as a door of
hope." If we will truly repent of our sins before the Lord, and He sees a
great heap of stones over them, that He will then give our enemies into our
hands. As Joshua 8:2 goes on to tell us, He will not only give assurance of
victory, but will also tell us exactly how to do it! Praise His name! May we act
quickly as Aaron did in Numbers 16:48 when Israel sinned against the Lord and he
"took his stand between the dead and the living, so that the plague was
A physical manifestation of a spiritual state
"Now the birth of
Jesus Christ was as follows, when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph,
before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit...
Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for that which
has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit and she will bear a Son, and you
shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their
When a person turns to the
Lord, they become just as Mary was. The seed of life has been conceived within
you by the Holy Spirit, in order to give birth to the image of the Son in your
life. This is the seed spoken of in 1 Peter 1:23 where it says, "For you
have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is,
through the living and abiding word of God." James 1:18-21 also says, "In
the exercise of His will He brought forth (gave us birth) by the word of
truth, so that we might be, as it were, the first fruits among His creatures...
Therefore putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in
humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls."
I had always been taught that this happened immediately when you came to Christ.
The Lord revealed to me that just as this does not happen in the physical realm,
neither does it take place in the spiritual realm. Let me explain to you what I
In John 3,Jesus has an
interesting conversation with a man who was well versed in the law, a Pharisee,
a teacher of Israel, but who had no spiritual understanding of a very important
teaching. It was about the new birth. Jesus told Nicodemus in verse 3-6, "Truly,
truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of
God." Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is
old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born, can
he?" Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is
born of water
and the Spirit, he cannot
enter into the kingdom of God." Without this 2nd birth, you will not
have the ability to see, or perceive the kingdom of God as it is happening
around and within you. This is proven just by looking at Jesus disciples. They
were with Him for about 3 1 /2 years, but didn't really get what He was talking
about until after Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was given. Revelation can only
come through the Holy Spirit to understand His word. 1 Cor. 2:14 says that "a
natural (unspiritual) man does not accept the things of the Spirit of
God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them because they
are spiritually appraised (examined)." God also says in Proverbs 1:23, "Turn
to my reproof (this is the "water" part, or repentance),
Behold, I will pour out My Spirit on you; I will make My words known to you
(this is revelation)." Having eyes to see physically, you will be blinded
to what is going on spiritually. This is part of the message that was given to
the church of Laodicea in Rev. 3:14-22 where Jesus tells them they were blind
and needed eye salve to anoint their eyes with. Without the cleansing waters of
repentance and the next step of the Spirit of God coming to a heart that has
been prepared through that repentance, you will not be able to enter into the
kingdom of God.
There are two elements spoken
of in the above passage; water and Spirit. The first is external, the second is
internal. The water represents the cleansing that comes when we turn to Jesus in
humility, confessing our sins and then turning away from the wickedness that
brings the wrath of God on us (see Col. 3:1-6). Being a Christian, or a
committed follower of Jesus Christ, is not just something you say, but something
you do! If you are truly sorry for your sins, then you will turn away from them
and do what God commands. His blood that was shed on the cross, and is accepted
by the Father on our behalf, then cleanses, or washes us clean from the guilt
and burden of our sins.
John the Baptist said in John
1:23 that he was "a voice of one crying in the wilderness, `Make
straight the way of the Lord." His baptism was "a baptism of
repentance for the forgiveness of sins." It made ready, or prepared your heart for what was to
come after that. John made it clear that there was more. He goes on to say in
vs.26-34, "I baptize in water, but among you stands One whom you do not
know. It is He who comes after me... this is the one who baptizes in the Holy
Spirit." Jesus said in John 7:37-39, "If any man is thirsty,
let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the scripture said,
`From his innermost being shall flow rivers of living water.' But this He spoke
of the Spirit whom those who believed were to receive; for the Spirit was not
yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified." In John 2:23-25 there
were many who believed in Jesus name as they beheld the signs which He was
doing. "But Jesus, on His part, was not entrusting Himself to them, for
He knew all men, and because He did not need anyone to bear witness concerning
man for He Himself knew what was in man." We would call these people in
verse 23 Christians because the word says that they were believers in Jesus, and
yet Jesus saw their inner man and would not fully commit Himself to them! The
word "entrust" in verse 24 means "to commit with
confidence". I was taught that "you received all you'll ever get of
God and His Holy Spirit when you first turn to Christ in repentance". Well
these scriptures alone prove otherwise. It is amazing when the Holy Spirit
reveals truth to me, how the false doctrines that have been set up in my mind
from the past will do anything to deny that truth and defend itself. They are
strongholds of falsehood implanted by the enemy that God wants to uproot from us
and set us free! Check out your response and see if this is true with you or
not. Whenever the Lord revealed something new to me that went against the false
doctrines that I had been taught, I would get very angry. I thought to myself,
"Why am I so angry?" It was because anger is a fruit of the flesh (Gal
5:19-21), and that is what those doctrines feed, the flesh!
The Holy Spirit cannot reveal
Jesus to you and correct the areas of thinking that are wrong if you walk in
spiritual pride, thinking that you know all that there is to know about Jesus.
That is rebellion against His Lordship. He is calling His people out of our
man-made denominational abominations and into His glorious freedom! It is time
for us, the church, to repent of our foolishness and to grow up into Christ. The
scriptures say in Proverbs 22:15 that "foolishness is bound up in the
heart of a child". Our many divisions and differing doctrines prove
just how unstable and immature we are. Ephesians 4: 11-16 tells us how to "attain
to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature
man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of
Christ." We will be transformed corporately as we repent of our useless
rituals and then allow the Holy Spirit to change our minds about the difference
between the holy and the profane.
I can see the heels of some
digging in and calling this "untrained and uneducated" man's words
foolishness from the pit, but you need to take a good look at the fruit of our
labor over the last 50 years. Our nation is sinking deeper and deeper into
depravity because of the wickedness in the church. It is a documented fact that
as the church goes, so goes the world. We have been called to be salt and light
to preserve that which is good and to lead the way into righteous living. For
instance, the divorce rate in our midst is the same or worse than that of the
rest of the world. Our deeds are screaming against our words! Titus 1:16 says,
"They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny Him. They are
detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good." Repent church
and receive eye salve to reopen your blind eyes. When Christ is again glorified
in our midst, then the rivers of living waters will flow freely once again to a
In Acts 8, Phillip goes to
the city of Samaria where a man named Simon believed and was baptized (in water)
in vs.13. The passage goes on to say in vs.14 that "when the apostles in
Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent them Peter
and John, who came down and prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy
Spirit. For He had not yet fallen upon any of them; they had simply been
baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they began laying their hands on
them, and they were receiving the Holy Spirit." Simon then offers them
money for the authority to lay his hands on people to receive the Holy Spirit.
Peter rebukes him strongly in vs.20 saying, "May your silver perish with
you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money! You have
no part or portion in this matter (or "word"), for your heart
is not right before God. Therefore, repent of this wickedness of yours, and pray
the Lord that if possible, the intention of your heart may be forgiven you. For
I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and the bondage of iniquity."
Remember, this was a man who had believed and had been baptized. The way within
him was not yet prepared, or ready, for the Lord to come and baptize him in the
There were others in Acts
19:1-7 who Paul came upon in the city of Ephesus. He asked them, "Did
you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?" They answered him, "No,
we have not even heard whether there is a Holy Spirit." Paul then said,
"Into what then were you baptized?" They said, "Into
John's baptism." Paul said that "John baptized with the baptism
of repentance (water), telling the people to believe in Him who was
coming after him, that is, in Jesus." He then laid hands on them and
they received the Holy Spirit. In John 14:21-23 Jesus said to His disciples, "He
who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me; and he who loves
Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him, and will disclose (manifest)
Myself to him." Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, "Lord,
What then has happened that You are going to disclose Yourself to us, and not to
the world?" Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves
Me, he will keep My word (water, repentance and obedience), and My Father
will love him, and we will come to him, and make our abode with Him (Spirit
descending on a prepared heart.). A beautiful picture of this is found in
Genesis 8:6-12 where Noah sent the dove out of the ark three times to check the
condition of the earth. In vs.9 Noah sent the dove out for the first time "but
the dove found no resting place... so she returned to him in the ark."
The cleansing waters had not yet receded enough to leave a place for the dove of
God to stay. Remember that the Spirit of God descended as a dove on Jesus in
Math. 3:16 when He was baptized. After seven days, the dove was sent out for a
second time. "And the dove came to him toward evening; and behold, in
her beak (mouth) was a freshly picked olive leaf." The judgment
waters had receded with new vegetation beginning to reveal itself. The fruits of
true repentance were being seen, unlike the unrepentant, uncleansed, religious
hypocrites (Pharisees) of Luke 3:7-9. In vs.12, after another seven days, the
dove was sent out for the third and last time. She did not return to him again.
The place of habitation had now been made ready. This happens individually and
corporately. When we, the body of Christ, are made ready, then the Spirit of God
will come and inhabit His people. This is where Jesus has been glorified and the
Spirit is then given. The living waters then flow, bringing life to wherever
How many times have we
witnessed people, if not yourself, who were convicted of the condition of their
heart, being warned by the Holy Spirit that "your heart is not right before
God." Then up comes a well meaning, but deadly deceived
"counselor" or other church leader to give you what is called
"assurance of salvation". He asks you if you asked Jesus in your heart
and confessed your sins. When you say yes he then offers a false sense of
security by saying, "See, you're fine, don't worry. The devil just wants
you to doubt the word of God." In so doing, they produce a spiritual
abortion!!! The pressure of the Holy Spirit has been put there in order to move
you on into the baptism of the Spirit. The Spirit of God is moving you down the
birth canal in order to give birth to the image of the Son in you. Satan quickly
moves into position to commit a spiritual abortion on the seed which had been
conceived within you. You say, "God would never allow that to happen. I am
His child!" Thousands and thousands of babies have already been aborted and
God has not yet stopped it! Wake up before it is too late for you. Why do you
think Paul so emphatically says in Galatians 4:19, "My children, with
whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you." He said "again
in labor" because he understood the true meaning of being "born
Look at your own life. Have
you received the Holy Spirit? I am not talking about the perversion of the
teaching that says this is speaking in "tongues". That's from the pit.
The devil can easily counterfeit the true gift of God (which I believe that
there is). So what if you spoke in tongues. Is your life changed? Are you
receiving revelation from the Spirit as you study the word? The scriptures say
that when the Spirit comes, He will guide you into all the truth and that he
will reveal Jesus to or in you! The greatest proof of the Holy Spirit within is
a holy life lived out. That is the true witness of the Spirit. How can the Holy
Spirit come into your very being, and you not be moved toward the same holiness?
Have you been "clothed
with power from on high"? That is what happened at Pentecost when the Holy
Spirit was poured out on those who were assembled together in the upper room.
They did not run off to fulfill the great commission in their own strength, but
obeyed the Lord who had told them in Luke 24:46-49, "I am sending
forth the promise of My Father upon you; but you are to stay in the city until
you are clothed with power from on high." Jesus had commanded His
apostles in Acts 1:4‑8 not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the
Father had promised, "for John had baptized with water, but you shall be
baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." There is a
children's fairy tale called "The Emperor's Clothes". A king is
deceived into believing that a beautiful robe was being made for him. He could
not see it but was led into believing that it was very real. He went before his
kingdom naked and his shame was seen by all. This is very much like the body of
Christ. We are blind and naked kings before a world that is laughing at our
nakedness. God is telling us in Revelation 3:18, "I advise you to buy
from Me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich, and white garments, that
you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be
revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see."
There are spiritual abortions
happening day after day in the body of Christ. We must repent of our
foolishness. Conception, or the receiving of the seed of life is always first
with the development of it in the protection of the womb in water. Then as we go
through an intense time of labor pains, there comes the breaking through of new
birth with the intaking of the first breath of life (Spirit). We must be careful
with our help in the delivery room of the Great Physician. In Isaiah 66:9 the
Lord says, "Shall I bring to the point of birth, and not give delivery?
Or shall I who gives delivery shut the womb?" Hosea 13:13 says, "The
pains of childbirth come upon him; he is not a wise son, for it is not the time
that he should delay at the opening of the womb." This is wise counsel
from the word to those who are feeling birth pains within them. They should
press forward until the Spirit gives birth. When the church stops her spiritual
abortions, the physical abortions that are taking place in the world will also
stop. As the church goes, so goes the world. James 2:26 says, "The body
without the Spirit is dead." The deadness in the abortion clinics
across America are a reflection of the deadness in the body of Christ. May God
grant us repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth. "Come

Dear Reader -are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you ... please don't make such a tragic mistake.
To get to know God; to be at peace with God; to have your sins forgiven; to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity; to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help understand the importance of being reconciled to God.

Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life.
