The greatest proof of God is the fact that LIFE EXISTS at all.

In all the intricacies and nuances of life…
In every atom and cell, and fiber of our being…
In every breath from each living thing…
We find the proof of God.

These things did not, could not, form by accident.

Life is the result of design.

There was a mighty hand, an ultimate wisdom, that formed, created, and breathed the breath of life into creation.

And standing above all Other creation, was the man and woman, created in the very IMAGE of God.

Why are people special?
Because we BEAR THE IMAGE of the creator.

Why does satan hate humanity with such a strong hatred?

Because we alone, out of all creation, BEAR THE IMAGE of God.

When you see people, you see the handiwork of God.

Life is the greatest proof that God exists at all.
So, for the believer, the ultimate attack on God is the attack on those who bear his image.

Murder runs rampant.
People take no thought for attacking human life.
But the most disturbing thought of all is that, a human being can take the life of an UNBORN human being.

Abortion is an attack on God himself.

  • It kills those who bear his image.
  • It kills the plan of God for each and every tiny human life that it touches.
  • It kill defenseless PEOPLE who were created to walk, live, move, and have their identity formed through the purpose, power, and love of the divine creator.

To say that God stands and looks away as millions of babies have their lives and futures stripped away from them, is utter nonsense.

God sees.
God hears their cry from within the womb.
God knows the plans he has for them, though they are yet unborn and unrealized.

To say that God doesn’t care about children, and even those who are unborn, is utter nonsense.

Scripture declares…

Matthew 18:5-6 NLT
[5] “And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me. [6] But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.

Obviously, a baby in the womb is not tempted to be drawn into sin, so what does this mean in regard to the taking of unborn human life?

It means if we allow unborn human life to be brought under the power or influence of someone bent on harm and destruction, it would be better if the perpetrator had a stone hung around his neck and was cast into the sea.

This is the attitude of Jesus towards those who harm, hurt, mutilate, and kill the weak, defenseless children who have such potential for life and hope.

Many declare that life doesn’t begin at the moment of conception.
Many decry the beliefs of scripture in regard to when life starts.

They want to proclaim their “choice.”
But as far as life is concerned, God plainly shows when life begins.

Psalm 139:1-6 NLT
[1] O LORD, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. [2] You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. [3] You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. [4] You know what I am going to say even before I say it, LORD. [5] You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. [6] Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand!

The writer says all of this to say in essence, “God, you know everything about me.”

But the psalmist takes this thought even further when he declares…

Psalm 139:13-17 NLT
[13] You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. [14] Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous-how well I know it. [15] You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. [16] You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. [17] How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered!

According to scripture, God knew us IN THE WOMB.
Before we were ever born, he had already laid out every single plan for our life.

Each day of our life was recorded…written down in his book…before we ever took a single breath.

Scripture declares to us that God’s thoughts toward us are PRECIOUS!
His thoughts about us are innumerable.

So what are believers supposed to do with the epidemic of abortion?

I believe God is calling people to pray RIGHT NOW…like never before!
We are to push back the darkness, and godlessness of abortion through the power of intercessory prayer.

  • We pray for those caught in a cycle, or in a decision they feel trapped into making.
  • We pray for those who are performing cruel acts of vicious murder on the innocent.
  • We pray for the church to remove the callousness, and blinders from her eyes and once again SEE with the eyes of God.
  • We pray that God places a burden on prayer warriors to rise up and intercede for all of this.

Pushing back the darkness means fighting for those who cannot fight for themselves.

It means that we take a stand for LIFE and for holiness.

Whenever an unborn life (or any life) is snuffed out through murder, it is a direct attack on the mission Jesus came to earth to fulfill.

John 10:10 NKJV
[10] The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

The very mission of Jesus is to bring LIFE to people who are spiritually dead.
He is the author of life.
He is the originator of life.
There is not a single life, of a single person, that ever lived, the good and the bad, that DID NOT HAVE GOD’S HAND IN THE PROCESS.

Life is GIVEN by permission of the creator.

Certainly there are terrible incidents that happen to people…things that should never have taken place, but it does not change the fact that taking an unborn life is wrong.

Christians…believers…we are called to push back the darkness of abortion through our prayer and intercession.

But not only through our prayers…it is by our action as well.

In the United States of America, the single greatest power and authority that you and I possess is the power to cast a VOTE.

We are given a unique opportunity to have our voice heard.

This opportunity is your weapon.
Don’t use it lightly.

Here’s my plea to those who read this message…
“Don’t VOTE for ANYONE who condones, supports, helps, assists, or stands for the taking of unborn human life.”

Nearly everything I write is written to the Church…to the Church in the earth.
So to the remnant God is calling, I say…
“We cannot stand by in our great nation and simply watch as people kill the innocent among us.”

Believers WILL give an account to God one day for each and every thing we did, thought, said, looked upon, or allowed.

If we look upon the tragedy of abortion and don’t pray…we will give an account.

If we look upon the lawlessness of abortion and don’t VOTE IT OUT…we will give an account.

All through the Old Testament, the idea of “guilt by association” is present.

If you lived in a place that deserved the judgment of God, and didn’t rise up to take a holy stand, you were associated with those who were guilty.

Never let it be said that the people of God did not pray and vote.

  • We must teach our children the value of life.
  • We must proclaim the value of life.
  • We must embrace the value of life.

Open your heart to the burden of God.

Prayer warriors…it’s time to rise and push back the darkness of abortion.

My heart is for the church that Jesus is building and returning for...the church that the gates of hell will not prevail against.
More than anything, the desire of my heart is to see the greatest revival of the Holy Spirit, salvations, spiritual awakening, and for the miraculous to come back to the church, preparing believers for the return of Jesus.
