Ezekial and Abortion!

I bought a bible from the discount bible outlet about 5 years ago. One day (about 5 months after I had been writing in it and reading it) I noticed that the first 19 books of Ezekial were missing. Yesterday at our Tender Mercies bible study we were each given a passage to read. I had the discount bible with me and was given Ezekial 13: 9-16. I had to borrow a bible to read it. Well all I can say is WOW.....I kept reading and reading...because it spoke volumes to me. Now I wonder what all of the rest of Ezekial is telling us and am picking up the other bibles in my house to read.

Here are just some snippets from Ezekial 13: I feel they are so applicable to the abortion issue (especially the politics).

Ezekial 13: 9-12 My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will not belong to the council of my people or be listed in the records of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Sovereign LORD.

10 " 'Because they lead my people astray, saying, "Peace," when there is no peace, and because, when a flimsy wall is built, they cover it with whitewash, 11 therefore tell those who cover it with whitewash that it is going to fall. Rain will come in torrents, and I will send hailstones hurtling down, and violent winds will burst forth. 12 When the wall collapses, will people not ask you, "Where is the whitewash you covered it with?"

The video I posted with Bernard Nathanson supports the fact that the entire pro choice movement was designed to promote the lie of abortion and create an acceptance for abortion/legalization. And here we are 35 years post roe v wade and about 40 years after the conception of NARAL and this 'false vision and divination" is still a very destructive force. However, there is hope...God says he will collapse the walls.

Ezekial 13: 17-19
17 "Now, son of man, set your face against the daughters of your people who prophesy out of their own imagination. Prophesy against them 18 and say, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Woe to the women who sew magic charms on all their wrists and make veils of various lengths for their heads in order to ensnare people. Will you ensnare the lives of my people but preserve your own? 19 You have profaned me among my people for a few handfuls of barley and scraps of bread. By lying to my people, who listen to lies, you have killed those who should not have died and have spared those who should not live.

verse 19 gives me chills....YOU HAVE KILLED THOSE WHO SHOULD NOT HAVE DIED AND SPARED THOSE WHO SHOULD NOt true. And there is something sinister and witchcraft like about stripping a baby from a womb. It wreaks of witchcraft and the devil. Also, he says "WILL YOU ENSNARE THE LIVES OF MY PEOPLE BUT PRESERVE YOUR OWN?" God's people are being lied to and become ensnared. Those women who choose to be preserved promote abortion to innocent people to continue to create a pretense of massive acceptance when the truth is that good people are being caught in this trap of lies and lured away from God's truth...

Ezekial 13:
20 " 'Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against your magic charms with which you ensnare people like birds and I will tear them from your arms; I will set free the people that you ensnare like birds.

GOD goes all out to save us even when ensnared and even when we have gone through with the abortion. He longed to bring us back wounded and all into HIS arms. He will give us wings again.

EZ 13:21 I will tear off your veils and save my people from your hands, and they will no longer fall prey to your power. Then you will know that I am the LORD. 22 Because you disheartened the righteous with your lies, when I had brought them no grief, and because you encouraged the wicked not to turn from their evil ways and so save their lives, 23 therefore you will no longer see false visions or practice divination. I will save my people from your hands. And then you will know that I am the LORD.' "

Jesus will save us and yet He even shows some mercy allowing those who do harm to witness the truth of the Lord....they too will know that He is Lord. The TRUTH (HIS TRUTH) will set us all free...
