Proverbs 6:16-19 lists 7 things which God hates that are “abominations.” You can read the list, however, v.17 lists “hands that shed innocent blood.” What could be more innocent than an unborn child? Who do we lay the blame on for the abortion of a child? It does not rest solely on the doctor? Not fully, for he could never perform an abortion without the mother’s consent. But then, she could not consent without a law giving her permission. But then, it could not be legal (in man’s eyes) were it not for the lawmakers making it legal. But then, they could not make the laws contrary to God’s Word were it not for people knowingly voting them into office knowing they would do so. All are guilty of first degree murder in God’s eyes!
NOW MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION? I have ministered to a number of people over these almost thirty years who have received unScriptural advice concerning the subject. For those who realized the error of their way, and have been Born Again, there is forgiveness through the blood of Jesus Christ, which covers all our sin. So, if you are one of those who committed this “shedding of innocent blood”, the only way to have your cleansing from this sin is to receive Christ and be saved from your sin. God will cleanse you as though it never happened. You do not have to live the rest of your life with “bloody hands.”
Now notice some Bible verses with me that show that God calls the unborn “child.”
Exodus 21:22-23, “If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her…” “And if any mischief follow, (the child dies) then thou shalt give life for life.”
Job 31:15 “Did not HE that made me in the womb make him? And did not One fashion us in the womb?” Please read Psalm 139:14-16 and notice the same truth, that is that God forms us in the womb. Listen to Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed thee in the belly I KNEW THEE; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” Now look at this: God Knew Jeremiah in the womb and God “Sanctified…and ordained” Jeremiah a prophet before he was born! In Luke 1:15, John the Baptist would be “filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb.” Are you listening to what the Bible says here about an unborn child? Look down at verse 41, where we see “the BABE leaped in in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost.” Verse 44 tells us “THE BABE LEAPED IN MY WOMB FOR JOY.”
Abortion is murder! There is no way around this subject. Only a Godless, calloused, and cruel society would have “hands that shed innocent blood.”
