Many people know my story and my choice at 17 to have an abortion. It is a decision that haunted me for years and was something I would never want another woman to have to go through. Tonight, I finally shared with my husband what I see, spiritually, when Roe v. Wade is overturned and what I currently see because of this nation's decision to legalize abortion. Abortion is not about women's rights. It isn't. If you are reading this and you made a decision to have an abortion and you say you feel no regrets or had no effects afterwards, I encourage you to pray and ask the Lord if there is any hurt or pain in you from that decision. I hid my pain for years and acted like it was the best decision for me. But, when I cracked and allowed my true emotions to surface, Jesus broke through and removed every hurt and unforgiveness I ever had.
Abortion is about money, power, greed, and it is a demonic force that will be reckoned with. When I first started my prayer group back in April or so, I knew I was to pray for the ending of abortion in our country. I knew to pray for the wounds of this nation to be healed. I heard the Lord tell me to go look up the president of Planned Parenthood's name. Her name was Cecile Richards. When I googled the name meaning of Cecile, I was shocked. He had just shown me how to specifically pray for the abortion giant. Cecile literally means, "blind". I was in awe. God does not want her to be blinded any longer. He wants the scales to fall from her eyes so she can witness the goodness and fullness of Christ! She has not committed a crime too cruel for God to forgive. Jesus paid for her and all the other president's and employees of abortion companies.
Abortion is the worship of Baal in the Bible to sacrifice your child for any reason. Mine was to the god of selfishness. I wanted to continue to play volleyball, go to college, ride my horses, and most importantly have fun. But what about my daughter's fun? What about her children's children that were robbed of fun? I didn't just take a child. I took an entire generation. I am not being hard on myself and if you have ever suffered from the pain and guilt of abortion, I am not trying to condemn you. Through the blood of Jesus he will redeem you and give you a new purpose through that decision. He will turn everything around for his good! He sure did for me.
There are many facets to abortion. You don't just have Big Abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood. You also have the morning after pill and abortion pills. Yes, in case you didn't know, if a woman is early in the stages of pregnancy all she has to do is seek an abortion by taking a pill. It is a pill that is also used to treat cancer!
However, abortion has been around for centuries. Even after Roe v. Wade is overturned, there will be women that seek an abortion by alternative methods. Anything from taking prescription medicines known to abort the baby, herbs that are known to cause abortions, steam methods, whatever it takes for them. They know not what they do and they are only thinking about themselves in that moment. They see no other option. I am not saying it is an excuse by any means but I am saying mercy triumphs over judgement. If you meet someone who has already had an abortion, condemning her is not the option. Helping her see it through God's eyes is the only way to bring her to repentance. Psalm 139 is clear. Regardless of our sexual behavior, God is the one who knits the baby in the womb, he is the one who places the child with all of its amazing features and qualities and DNA.
America not only legalized abortion when it passed Roe v. Wade in 1973, we now fund abortion with our tax dollars and Title X funding. https://savethestorks.com/2018/02/heres-money-funding-abortion-fungibility-factor-explained/
Love of money is the root of all evil. It's one thing to have abortion clinics but another to have laws that legalize them and then actually invest in them. There are laws against abortion dating all the way back to the early 1800's in our country alone. Like I said earlier, abortion has been around for centuries. But, when America made legal abortion a NATIONAL law, that law became like a blanket over every single one of us and we have fallen under that blanket that cries out for innocent babies. I was born under this blanket. The law already existed when I was born. It is a demonic force over all of us that blinds us to the truth and opens a door for more curses to arise in your life.
Then, when funding began, the United States began sowing into death. You will reap what you sow.
I sell hot sauce for fun and many times to help fund my habits! But about two years ago a man wanted to start buying cases of hot sauce from me. He sells many products including honey, soaps, peanut brittle, etc. Last month, he upped his order from two cases at a time to ten! As we were discussing how this new order would work, I heard the Holy Spirit say that it was because he was investing in fertile ground. I am only fertile ground because of Jesus. My husband is a faithful giver and gives above and beyond. He loves to give because he knows the return he gets from it each and every week. He is a money man and he understands kingdom investments. Unknowingly, the man buying my hot sauce is sowing into fertile ground and his business has taken off! Not to mention the sells of my hot sauce as well. Money talks! But not the way the world would put that twist on it. Money has the power to bless you or curse you. When your money is going towards something ungodly as murder in God's eyes, you will reap murder.
Whether you believe in God or not, rain falls on the just and the unjust Ec 9:2. That scripture means wether you have received Jesus as your savior or not, when you follow biblical truths, even unknowingly, you will be blessed on the Earth just as the one who believes and follows Jesus will. It is a legal matter. You have to give God the legal right to work in your life and apply the blessing. You also have to close the legal right that the devil has to your life. Repent, forgive, apply the blood of Jesus to whatever area you need a door closed. Obviously, there is not an eternal promise for the one who doesn't accept Jesus.
Why are our children being murdered in schools? Because we are funding the abortions of our children. We are reaping what we are sowing. Money has opened that door for the enemy to conspire a way to steal, kill, and destroy our children as a national phenomenon. While the world mourns those children lost in schools they cheer for the abortion to take place.
When America decides to defund abortion, you will see a decline in school shootings. It might not make sense and there will be many who say that is stupid and absurd but it is a spiritual battle. For those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. Luke 12:56-57 Discern the times!
This is why our nation is in such an uproar right now. The swing vote will take the seat. Kavannaugh or not. There will be an overturn of the national law for abortion in our country and it will destroy many pharmaceuticals being prescribed now. This is a war over money, power, and blood. Because, by the blood of these babies, the enemy has the legal right into our nation!
I did some research as I was writing this. The lady's real name in the "Jane Roe" trial of Roe v. Wade was Norma McCorvey. She died last year in February 2017. Her story is that she didn't even get to have an abortion because the trial lasted too long. The bay was adopted and another huge uproar occurred from the adoption as well. Norma gave her life to Jesus Christ in 1995 and she was a pro-life activist! We don't hear much about those stories. http://www.chicagotribune.com/sns-abortion-timeline-story.html
When I read that she died last year, I knew in my spirit that she is crying out from heaven with the cloud of witnesses, seeking for this law to be overturned! Her forgiveness and repentance has absolutely paved the way for this time in America! She has written a couple of different books which I cannot wait to read now.
Maybe you've never had an encounter with abortion or someone who has had an abortion. Maybe you do know someone and they seem to be "ok" so abortion must be ok and truly the right thing for some women and "their bodies". I tell you from personal experience abortion is murder any way you look at it. Call it a fetus, call it an embryo, BUT GOD calls is His child Luke 1:41. Abortion is what is killing our country. If there is no other reason to see abortion as "bad" then start yearning for the blessings of God which is to choose his righteousness!
Deut 30:19 “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!
