Childhood Innocence

I woke up the day before Easter with a word from the Lord replaying in my head.

“I deliver babies, not Easter eggs,” He said.

Unsure what to do with it and overwhelmed He'd spoke something so powerful to me, I lay there, pondering. (Lk 2:19) In the end, I kept it to myself because I knew He did not want to condemn anyone for their planned Easter festivities. Condemnation is not in Him. (Rm 8:1)

His words have not let me go, however. I’ve considered them over and over since then, knowing He wasn’t finished with the subject. This morning, April 21, 2022, He emphasized His words again.

“What is an egg?” the Spirit asked.

It is an unborn life. Now, God has nothing against hiding and seeking eggs. But we must know—He created eggs to multiply His life on the earth. (Ge 1:24,28) IT IS HIS ETERNAL LIFE INSIDE THE EGG, AND YOU CANNOT KILL ETERNITY!

When you take an unborn child's life, you reject HIS LIFE, and you reject His plan for all of mankind. It is personal to Him and of eternal significance.

God, the Father, sent God, the Son, to earth as a baby. ON PURPOSE. Not as a last-minute decision, but one planned out from before the foundation of the world. (Heb 10:5; 1Pe 1:20) The most innocent of life, that needed a mother's and father's care to grow to adulthood, was the promised Messiah. This cannot be stated enough. Here is the Father's heart for children. He sent Jesus to earth to die in order to be raised back to life by the power of the Spirit of God, so that we could have His abundant life. (Jn 3:16)

And God's planned gift of eternal, abundant life began with a baby.

“Heaven is found in a childlike heart. Heaven is full of children,” the Spirit said. “This is the Father's song. Men have written a reprise.”

What is a reprise? A reprise is a revision of an initial, pre-composed theme. They are not the original but a variation of it written according to the songwriter’s taste.

We must sing the Father's song and stop writing a reprise. There is only ONE SONG, and it is as old as time. Innocence is a prize above all, and every child’s life is known by the Father.

The Spirit says, “Men have killed, for the sake of convenience, what is eternal, and in so doing, they have rejected their Creator.”

Child sacrifice is the worship of another god because THE LIVING GOD is repulsed by it. (Pr 6:17) HE WILL NOT DESTROY WHAT HE HAS CREATED. He created all life VERY GOOD (Ge 1:31), and He sent His Son to redeem ALL OF mankind from sin.

To take a child's life is to reject the love of the Father which Christ died to display.

Please know, there is no sin too large to be washed by Jesus' blood. To believe otherwise is to make His work incomplete, and the Father NEVER does an incomplete work. His word never returns to Him void but always accomplishes His purpose. (Is 55:11) Christ's death and Resurrection includes EVERY SIN that was ever committed in the past or would be committed in the future … BECAUSE this is the size of the Father's love.

“But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,” it says in Ephesians 2:4.

He condemns the taking of life but forgives any who come to Him in sincere repentance and wipes it all away, as if it never existed. His forgiveness is a complete forgiveness. “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God,” (Rm 3:23) and all sin is washed by the blood of Jesus.

But the willful destruction of a child's innocent life, life He created, He will no longer ignore. In time's past, this ignorance He winked at, but now He calls all men everywhere to repent.

“And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Mt 18:5-6 KJV)

“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.”
(Act 17:30-31)
