I will rejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in my people; no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping and the cry of distress. No more shall there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not fill out his days, for the young man shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed.*
The Holy Spirit told this basic truth of Salvation to Isaiah regarding the New Jerusalem in the 1000 year reign here on Earth. I am no Bible scholar but I am still so surprised at the millions of Christians that do not understand End Times, nor do they want to. What I truly love about the Book of Isaiah is that if you have a rough time understanding Revelation, just read Isaiah. Not only is it readable but the Holy Spirit used very basic examples and truths – parables – that we may understand.
A basic truth told in this scripture is that a baby will see heaven before a hundred year old sinner will regardless of how wise he/she is. Why? Because the old sinner had a chance to repent and accept Jesus as Savior, the baby did not. Worldwide there are about 42 million abortions per year. That means since the Roe v. Wade decision 36 years ago, at least 1.5 BILLION children have died due to abortion.
The Post Abortive Woman does not have to weep any longer; her child is in Heaven rejoicing while we mourn on Earth. What I want the Post Abortive Woman to know is that she can see her child again if only she’d accept Jesus.
God foreknew that this holocaust would happen; He gave us a way out – to choose not to abort. But knowing we would, He gave us ‘beauty for ashes and the oil of JOY for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified’.**
