41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 And she cried out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 And how has it happened to me, that the mother of my Lord would come to me? 44 For behold, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy. 45 And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.”
The first person to give praise to the Lord Jesus, was a fetus or an embryo, the boy who would be John the Baptist. When Mary greeted her aunt Elizabeth, her unborn son John jumped for joy & gave praise to the Savior who was nearby. To some people, life begins when the heart starts to pump blood, & life is over when the same heart stops beating. There is a division between people & even believers of Christ, a great debate. Some people believe in Pro-life, that a unborn child deserves to be born & have a chance of life, then there are the Pro-choice, they believe a mother has personal right over her body whether keep her child or terminate it. The Word speaks about life & where it begins & if it supports Pro-life or Pro-choice. This Bible verse says the Lord weeps over the death of a little child;
2 Kings 8:12 Hazael said, “Why does my lord weep?” Then he answered, “Because I know the evil that you will do to the sons of Israel: their strongholds you will set on fire, and their young men you will kill with the sword, and their little ones you will dash in pieces, and their women with child you will rip up.”
The Holy Bible says it is a total abominable act to sacrifice our sons & daughters, that is what termination is a sacrifice so someone can be happy;
Deuteronomy 12:31 You shall not behave thus toward the Lord your God, for every abominable act which the Lord hates they have done for their gods; for they even burn their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods.
Jeremiah 19:4 Because they have forsaken Me and have made this an alien place and have burned sacrifices in it to other gods, that neither they nor their forefathers nor the kings of Judah had ever known, and because they have filled this place with the blood of the innocent and have built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire as burnt offerings to Baal, a thing which I never commanded or spoke of, nor did it ever enter My mind;
This abominable act is not understood by God & He says it is completely evil & how can someone who follows the Lord say that the act of termination is acceptable & even call health-care, whose health does it benefit. Do ever wonder if an unborn child feels pain & suffering as it is being ripped from the safety of it’s mother’s womb. If we call ourselves Christians, we worship the Creator of life, not the Baal who asks for your son & daughter, & Baal doesn’t even exist, if someone is sacrificing their children to make them believe god, then it is something they really wanted to do and why. We should love & cherish the gift God give us to Be fruitful and multiply; children are a gift from God;
We, as followers of the Lord, should be like John the Baptist, who in his early form of life, even hidden away inside his mother’s womb, gave praise to the Lord Jesus. Let us be thankful for the example the Holy Bible gives, to tell us when praising the Lord begins & when it ends;
