God & Abortion
If you are reading this and you don’t believe in God or the Bible as His word it will be pointless for you unless it turns you into a believer.
However with that said, I have been studying the Bible for 43 years and do you know, God always gives me something new.
Psa 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
I never prepare my bible studies. I study the word but we do a through the Bible type study and I have always asked God to teach it. It works best when He does and every time, He gives us a refreshing new word.
Tonight it was Psalm 139. He showed us just how much He loves and cares for us.
Psa 139:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.
Psa 139:2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
Psa 139:3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
It said that God knows our every move. When we get up, when we sit down and he knows all our ways.
Imagine, the God of all the universe is interesed in all our ways and what we do.
Psa 139:4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.
Psa 139:5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
Psa 139:6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
The verses really blew me away. It said that God knows every word that drops off my tongue. It said he protects us all around and His hand is upon us. This is the hard part. David said such knowledge is too wonderful , too high that he could not understand it.
We thought about it tonight and realized that we can not fully grasp what we are reading. Can you imagine if you really understood that God was next to you all the time? You can’t. Oh, you can know it. You can believe it because it is true. You just can not understand it. Our minds are not built for that type of understanding.
David goes on to say that there is no where to go from His presence.
Psa 139:7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
Psa 139:8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
Psa 139:9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Here is the part that shows us that abortion is terribly wrong.
Psa 139:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
Literally, reins means kidneys but figuratively it means the mind as the center of ourselves. It says that He has covered us in our mother’s womb. He has caused us to be.
But it gets so much deeper.
Psa 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
Psa 139:15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
It speaks about how wonderfully made we were. Not accidentally pushed together but made. We must realize that life began with Adam and we were made at that time (DNA) God uses the normal process with a man and a woman to cause it all to come together.
139:15 says: My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret
He said my substance. Not a fetus, or sperm or an egg but my substance all that it would take for me to form. I was made in secret, within the framework of my mother.
Again He refers to the “substance” that was un perfect. Just a wondrous mass of ingredients that some say is not yet life but God said even though they were not yet complete, In His book, all my members were written. He has already ordered my arm, legs, toes….
Psa 139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
It said as the process continued, I was fashioned.
Psa 139:17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
God has made us in Adam and has continued us in substance and in due process form. He loved us even back in Adam as He promised a Saviour to redeem all of mankind. That promise to redeem mankind when Adam and Eve were the only two visible parts of Mankind, knowing the rest of us was within.
Praise be to our God and creator who recognizes us as His own, made by His hand and to be protected not murdered.
