Yesterday morning, on National Sanctity of Human Life Day, the Lord dropped this into my heart and I wanted to share it:
Jeremiah 11:19 reads “But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter, and I knew not that they had devised devices against me saying, let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered;” (Expositor’s Study Bible).
Jeremiah is a type of Christ, I know, but this verse seemed so appropriate for this horrible loss of life called abortion. If you look at the verse, it’s the fruit of the tree that was to be ‘cut off’ so that no one would know about it. And so is abortion; an unnamed child to be forgotten as if it never was. But God knows that child. He knows all children, born or unborn.
I am not a Bible scholar, I only know what the Lord said to my heart. The Devil seeks the preborn children, the most innocent of all humankind and knows they can’t fight back – YET. But wait until Jesus comes back in Glory – the children will be with him – all 50 million of them. Now that’s an army!
