NAMED BEFORE CONCEPTION
On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise the child, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he was conceived. —Luke 2:21
Jesus’ birth was supernatural, a miraculous birth by God’s design (Luke 1:26-38). He was named Jesus even before His conception. Jesus “was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made” (John 1:1-3). Jesus, “being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!” (Philippians 2:6-8). This Holy, Eternal Son of God came to this planet and “died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” (I Corinthians 15:3-4). This is God’s love for us and “We love because he first loved us” (I John 4:19).
Those who advocate abortion wouldn’t have any problem with aborting Jesus if He were born in our day. But the fact of the matter is abortionists and those who support them are destroying creations of God. Abortionists and those supporting them are anti-God, anti-Christ as they kill the most innocent and helpless among us. This is the ultimate terrorism that has been carried out on over 50 million children in the womb in the United States. World-wide 50 million abortions happen every year!— 1.5 billion babies have been aborted world-wide. Do you think God is happy about that? Do you think He does not hear the cries of those being aborted? Woe to those who support or perform abortions. They will meet their Maker one day and will have to give account to Him! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgcGmgrNuLM May they turn for the practice of abortion and support of it!
Dear Father, please help our leaders to make right decisions to stop this horrific slaughter of the innocents. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.
