FOR THOSE WHO THINK GOD PRIORITIZES THE UNBORN OVER THE LIVING…

When we try to justify our faith through our American politics, something will always ‘slip through the cracks’. People on both sides are judging others by their myopic views based on the sins and values they choose to politicize.

Many people who are passionately against abortion (as we all should be, yes it is sin) feel justified by prioritizing that over issues of social injustice, equality and equity that concern the living. God makes it clear that there are other abominations equal to those which are politicized…

Proverbs 6:16-19 (NKJV)

16 These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to [a]Him:
17 A[b] PROUD look,
A lying tongue,
HANDS THAT SHED INNOCENT BLOOD,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 A false witness who speaks lies,
And ONE WHO SOWS DISCORD AMONG BRETHERN.

As much as it may seem right to some of us, God does not prioritize the unborn over those who are born. And, you can’t ignore the concerns of the living for those who aren’t living ‘yet.’ The fact is that God is just as sovereign over the unborn soul as He is over the soul that has died.

Remember what Yeshua said…

Mark 12:26-27 (NKJV)

26 But concerning the dead, that they rise, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the burning bush passage, how God spoke to him, saying, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? 27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. You are therefore greatly [a]mistaken.”

Be confident that God is sovereign over those who are not yet born…

Romans 9:10-13 (NKJV)

10 And not only this, but when Rebecca also had conceived by one man, even by our father Isaac 11 (for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls), 

God is God of the unborn, the living and the dead, but Yeshua the Messiah, Jesus Christ died for those who are guilty and alive…

1 Peter 3:17-19 (NASB)

17 For it is better, if [a]God should will it so, that you suffer for doing what is right rather than for doing what is wrong. 18 For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the [b]spirit; 19 in [c]which also He went and made proclamation to the spirits now in prison,


God doesn’t give priority to a sin just because we decide to do so, and quite frankly, he doesn’t give priority to those who are not yet born over those who are.


Again, abortion is wrong, but it’s not more wrong that injustice…

Don’t forget the REAL reasons that God sent Israel and Judah into exile…

Isaiah 10:1-3 (NASB)

Woe to those who enact evil statutes
And to those who constantly record [a]unjust decisions,
So as to [b]deprive the needy of justice
And rob the poor of My people of their rights,
So that widows may be their spoil
And that they may plunder the [c]orphans.
Now what will you do in the day of punishment,
And in the devastation which will come from afar?
To whom will you flee for help?
And where will you leave your [d]wealth?

ENCOURAGEMENT: YOU DIDN’T SURPRISE GOD WHEN YOU BACKSLID…

We have all done it before. We asked God to forgive us, and promised Him that we wouldn’t do it again…then found ourselves right back in the same behavior again, and sometimes again and again.

Has this ever been you? Sure, we all have.

I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Whether you slipped up or carefully planned your presumptuous (premeditated sin in the 1st degree), you did NOT surprise God when you messed up.

Psalm 19:13  (NKJV)

13 Keep back Your servant also from PRESUMPTUOUS sins;
Let them not have dominion over me.
Then I shall be blameless,
And I shall be innocent of [a]great transgression.

Think about this, David was ordained King and a man after God’s own heart, God already knew that we was going to see Bathsheba bathing, lust after her, abuse his authority and have her brought to him, have sex with her, get her pregnant and then carefully plan to have her husband Uriah (who was very loyal to him) killed to conceal the sin. David did not take God by surprise.

God already knew Noah was going to get drunk after he delivered him and his family in the flood (Genesis Chapter 9).

God already knew that Abraham was going to sleep with Hagar when it was taking too long for Isaac to be born (Genesis Chapter 16).

God already knew that Jacob was going to lie to steal Esau’s blessing (Genesis Chapter 27).

Yeshua already knew when He called Peter that he would deny Him three times (John Chapter 18).

And, God already knew when you accepted His Son as Lord and Savior that you would ____________________________. ( You fill in the blank. You know what you did or are doing).

Their sin didn’t disqualify them and yours doesn’t disqualify you.

Think about this. It wasn’t David’s sexual sin that disqualified him from building a house for God, as he longed to do. It was his violence (2 Samuel Chapter 7).

Notice that David’s sin did not disqualify him from being King, He did not have to surrender his ‘thrown’.

David’s sin did not mean the Psalms that God gave us through Him could no longer be sung, read or prayed.

David’s sin did not disqualify Him from being a man after God’s own heart.

Why? Because David repented (2 Samuel Chapter 12 and Psalm 51), unlike King Saul, who he succeeded. Saul never repented and He was rejected by God and lost the throne to David (1 Samuel Chapters 15-16).

The key is repentance. Yes, you may slip up. You may even stay in that sin for a season. But, the fact that you weren’t comfortable in that sin is proof that God’s Holy Spirit was convicting you. The fact that you aren’t comfortable in that sin, if you’re in it right now, is proof that the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) won’t allow you to have any peace right now. It proves that you are His.

You didn’t catch God by surprise. If you’re practicing a sin right now that you know hurts God…stop right now, before God stops you. If you have repented…be strong and don’t go back.

Be encouraged. God already knew everything you would do when He chose you!

Your sin didn’t or doesn’t disqualify you, as long as you truly repent…now.

ENCOURAGEMENT: YOUR FAILURES DON’T HAVE TO DISQUALIFY YOUR CALLING…

WARNING! DON’T ASK GOD TO MAKE YOU STOP_________.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO IT ANYMORE…
