On our way to the killing place to pray, I heard this from the LORD: ‘Will you accept what I [Jesus] have ALREADY done or what Satan might do for you?’
My husband and I went to the last (THANK GOD) abortion clinic in Dayton yesterday to pray. ‘Customers’ came and went – from as far as Tennessee for perhaps the ‘Nationally recognized and referred-to for late-term care through 24 weeks’ – to either abort or go for their state required consultation before the procedure. Many of you don’t know that this killing place is the ‘birth place’ for the partial birth abortion and it’s pioneer, Martin Haskell. It’s a hard place to look at, seeing obviously pregnant women enter that gate of HELL to abort a child in mid-pregnancy.
As my husband and I walked and prayed, the Lord spoke again to me: “For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?” I nodded in agreement. But what does this bit of scripture that Jesus spoke have to do with being at the killing place? Let me expand the entirety of what Jesus said in the Book of Matthew (16:24-28):
24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 25 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works. 28 “Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.”
Being post-abortive, I have to live every minute of every day knowing I took a life. I played tug-of-war with God for YEARS thinking that He owed me. The self-righteousness of what I believed to be true only secured my faithlessness of who God is and what Jesus died for. I could not differentiate what was right or wrong. I nearly lost my own soul because I did not know Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, regardless of how much I had. My works were many, never being enough to keep me from a burning hell, “For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”
Dear post-abortive mom and dad, the Lord said to me to tell you, “Will you accept what I have ALREADY done or what Satan might do for you?”
