What Is Life?

The phrase, “What is LIFE” is a question that every person that has ever lived since the beginning of the ages must answer sometime in their LIFE time while the breath of LIFE from God is still in them. Scripture says from the Word of God the Holy Bible that God breathed the breath of LIFE into man and he became a living soul.

  “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7).

LIFE for everyone has started with God and will end with or without God. There is a heaven and a hell. The phrase, “smoking or non-smoking, does pertain to eternity. Life begins anew when we ask Jesus into our hearts and start a new life born-again of the Spirit of God. When we ask Jesus to forgive us of our sins a new life born of the Spirit of God begins. Scripture says we are born-again not of the flesh but of the Spirit of God.

“That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit” (John 3:6).

John 3:7 “ Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” (John 3:7).

 “The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit” (John 3:8).   

God has instructed us in his Commandments to serve only Him and have no other gods before Him. God created us to serve him and live our lives in communion with Him. God is a jealous God and demands we serve only Him.

 Think about the idols that hold people bondage. These idols may not be stone or wooden statues as we usually think of  idols, but they are materialism, pleasures of the flesh, addictions, and anything that comes between you and God—that is an idol. What about making ourselves the idol of putting ourselves in place of God and above God? When we serve our own selfish interests, do we make ourselves an idol and serve only ourselves?

The Scripture talks about heathen godless nations that offered the lives of their children as sacrifices to gods of stone and wood that were nonexistent. These idols of stone and wood were only a deception to the people and were a sacrifice to Satan himself. I can’t help but think we are no different than these godless heathen nations.

Think about it, abortion is usually about selfish motives of not interrupting the life of the mother. Many times we hear of the financial struggles these mothers have or other inconveniences this gift from God would bring. God wants us to protect those that cannot protect themselves and it is only a natural reflex to want to protect life especially of innocence.

The hope and pursuit of materialism at any cost is only a lie of deception. The aborting of a child to help the mother continue her way of life without the interruption of having a child is pursuing self and idolizing self-interests above God’s.

To pursue with no regard to the consequences or judgment of God and knowing adoption is an option that leaves God out of the equation is rebellious. The evil doers of this world may think they are not offering these aborted babies up to gods of stone and wood as mentioned in the bible, but they are greatly deceived by the father of all lies, Satan himself, and offering him their precious blood.

The enemy is laughing at the destroyed lives of the mother, doctor, families, and the unborn. The blood sacrifice to Satan is a sin that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will judge someday soon. This way of life will someday change because of the great sins of the world either before the Rapture or shortly after.

We are to protect LIFE and the taking of the unborn is a great sin that this nation will pay for with the aborted children that are murdered daily. LIFE is a matter of choices and those choices will determine our future and where we will spend eternity. In this article I would like to share my thoughts on the miracle of LIFE and how our society has violated it.

I recently found out that I am going to be a grandfather. You can imagine the excitement and joy that this news gave me, my wife and my entire family. The news that my daughter was only a couple weeks pregnant brought us joy because we know LIFE is in her and that a child is growing daily. Even though it was just a couple weeks we knew that we have been blessed by a miracle from God. Each LIFE is exactly that—a miracle of God.

Some time back I went to lunch with my wife and noticed a child bringing smiles to everyone around her. She was laughing and playing and as I watched her, all of life’s problems seemed to disappear for a time. While I watched her I was thinking that someday all children including all babies still in their mother’s womb will disappear.

 It is my belief that in the Rapture all true Christians and innocence will be taken away from sudden destruction at the start of the Tribulation. After the Rapture, sudden destruction and world chaos and panic will be like never seen on planet Earth. 

All the joy that children bring and that ability to make LIFE’S struggles not seem so important will be gone in an instant. The other thought that went through my mind was the horrible tragedy of those that are left behind without these treasures of LIFE given by God. The thoughts also went through my mind of all the people that are pro-choice that think that taking a LIFE from the womb is not murder.

I believe that these very people will be reminded of their thinking and choices they made with these innocent precious gifts from God. They will be reminded of these great sins before God by living in a world without the laughter of children. I had the thought that this will be God’s way of showing America and the world of its sins against the unborn miracles that he gave us. The abortionists may have their way now, but judgment is coming soon.

The judgment of God will be to both those who actually take children’s lives and to those who believe that there is nothing wrong with killing babies. The blood will be on all their hands and on un-repented sinners.

I believe the judgment of God will be continually reminding them of a world without those children with both the unborn and born who were taken in the Rapture. It will be a feeling of hopelessness and guilt. They will know the error of their ways and that they were wrong and God’s judgment is on them.

It is just my opinion that innocence under the age of accountably to Jesus including the children in the womb will be taken in the Rapture. After the Rapture I believe that Scripture points out that woman left behind in the Tribulation will once again become pregnant and bear children, but the world that is left behind will be a place of great pain and sorrow during the Tribulation years. The joy of life and motherhood will vanish in hopelessness in a world controlled by Satan.

“And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened” (Matthew 24:19-22). 

The spirit of God that lives in the millions of saints here on earth will be gone. The only thing that is holding back evil from exploding on this earth now is God’s Spirit and His Spirit that lives in true Christians.

I believe that all the aborted children of this world will be in heaven to greet born-again believers. I believe that true Christians who are born again, those that have truly repented of their sins and asked Jesus for forgiveness. They believe in the saving power of Jesus to cast their sins as far as the east is from the west, from one nail scarred hand to the other.

The Christian has faith in Jesus and believes in his birth, death, and resurrection and that He is coming back to take true Christians out before sudden destruction with the start of the Tribulation. I think they also believe in LIFE and that it is a miracle from God and it is not a matter of choice.

I believe that a so-called Christian who voted for those that are pro-choice must search their heart and ask for forgiveness for making such a mistaken choice. Repent for the judgment of God is coming soon. Get ready, get ready. Know that you know, that you know, that you truly know, that you are ready to meet Jesus. The only way to escape the Great Tribulation and the wrath of God is JESUS.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting LIFE” (John 3:16).

If you do not know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, make the choice to accept him today. This day choose LIFE in Jesus Christ and choose to have a daily relationship with him. Forsake the things of this world that are idols before God. Repent and turn away from sin and by the spirit of God live LIFE to the fullest in Jesus Christ. Do not be deceived that there are many ways to God. There is only one way to God and that one way to God is through his only son Jesus Christ.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
