Standing In The Gap For The Sin Of Abortion

Standing In The Gap For The Sin Of Abortion

Sometimes we are so blind that we do not see our sin as God sees it. We can be grateful that He takes time before dealing with a nation to point out our sin and show us the way of repentance. Jesus is the answer to a nations sin issues and when we repent of our sin, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness. The Lord is addressing the sin of abortion in the United States of America as we have heard tonight on a call to fast and pray sent out by Lou Engle of The Call.

I was painfully aware that our own nation is not exempt of this sin and also needs to come to a place of repentance and that laws need to be speedily changed to protect the unborn lives that are so dependent on the decisions we make. The laws we make do affect the generation to come and those thereafter and the sins of the fathers are visited on the children to third and fourth generation and some sins even to the tenth generation. What are we doing about our sin? What are we doing as the body of Christ in prayer and intercession? Are we calling on the Lord and repenting for the lives of those whose blood has been shed and like Abel’s blood is now crying up from the ground? God sees it all! He knows it all and nothing is hidden that will not be revealed.

We want our nation spared the natural disasters and yet do we deserve that our nation be spared? This is a soul searching question but one that needs to be asked. Are we asking the Lord to also change the hearts of those that are pondering abortions in the near future? Even this next week abortions are scheduled and yet we forget and these lives hang in the balance. Could we by our prayer change the hearts of many of these mothers? Can we change the heart of a nation through prayer, fasting and intercession? Yes we can!!! We have been called for such a time as this to make a difference, in the lives of others. Do you believe the Lord wants to use you to pray, stand in the gap and repent of the sin of abortion in our land?

The unborn are crying out as they are taken to the slaughter. Doctors that perform these abortions are murdering children. Mothers and Fathers who have abortions are killing their children and so many later live with deep regret troubling them each and every day of their lives. I know of one woman who suffered mental illness because of the abortion she had in her early life.

Let the Lord tenderize your heart to the cry of the unborn. Let Him stir you to stand in the gap. Let Him allow you to see sin as sin and not call it otherwise. The Lord saw the blood of Abel crying out and He sees the blood of each and every child that has been shed. Abortion breaks the commandment of the Lord that says, you shall not kill. In having an abortion you are committing murder.

Father God will most surely forgive you for having had an abortion and cover this sin in His precious blood. He is a loving and forgiving God. He is merciful to those that repent. Let us also repent of not carrying this burden and passing it off for others to take care of. Let us pray for our leaders that they hear the Lord and have their eyes opened to see. Let us cry out and spare not that the fear of God and a spirit of repentance come upon the people of our land and see if the Lord will again show our nations favor.

Now is the time to repent of our sin! Now is the time to hear Him! Now is the time to not delay but come quickly to Him in repentance! Now is the time for tomorrow may be too late! Now is the time to hear the voice of the Lord as He is speaking to many in the nations. God is raising up youth with a standard. He is raising up prophetic voices among our youth today that will go far beyond that which we have done for the Lord and will walk fearlessly speaking the whole counsel of God. Let us pray for these youth that God will raise them up with His fire in their bones and that they will speak without fear of man. Let us pray everywhere without doubting what the Lord will do for a nation that walks in repentance and fear of the Lord. Let us watch and pray, and repent of our sin. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

Steven Woodworth Files Motion For Parliament to Study Canada’s 400 Year Old Law On Definition Of Human Being

Steven Woodworth MP for Kitchener Centre needs to be commended on his filing a motion for Parliament to  review Subsection 223(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada that states that children are not human beings until complete birth. This archaic law definitely needs changed without delay. Let us pray for this to go forth and that any committee chosen would have wisdom in studying this law and that our Government has the wisdom of God to bring forth this change.

The Right To Home School

We have sent this letter to the Embassy of Sweden, Ottawa concerning the article below.

Dear Sir,

It has come to our attention by about the right to home school in your nation of Sweden.  We support  the right of the Himmelstrands and other families in Sweden who want to home school.” Eyes are upon your nation as to how you handle this and other cases.  Parents need to have the freedom to choose the education of choice for their children.

Swedish Homeschoolers Urgently Ask For Help From Homeschooling Families in the USA by Jeremiah Lorrig

Swedish Homeschoolers Urgently Ask For Help From Homeschooling Families in the USA by Jeremiah Lorrig

 The Right To Home School

This article drew my attention this morning.  Recently I know of one in our own Nation of Canada who has gone through a battle with the secular system in her right to home school her child. We are admonished in the Word of God to train up our children in the way they should go.  That way is God’s way.  Yet, we put our children in a secular school and wonder why they come out at the end of that schooling tainted by the world.

I am not saying home schooling is for everyone but there are many good home school programs and children have graduated from these programs with more skills to help them in this world than that which they received in the secular system.  Do…we want our children taught things that are contrary to the Word of God.  Of course not!  I do recall in high school myself having a history class many times a week that taught us evolution and it was taught in depth. Thankfully it did not sink in, perhaps because I had a foundation of at least going to Sunday school till I was twelve.

We have seen God taken out of our schools, school shootings and many lives destroyed. It is with sadness we remember the shootings at Columbine High School and only a week later one in Tabor, Alberta with the loss of precious young lives.

The secular system who has removed prayer from the schools and does not want the Lord mentioned has had sadly lacked the ability to protect our children and instil good values into them. We are told in the Word of God, woe to those that call evil good and good evil.  Plainly there are Christian parents who do NOT want their children tainted by an ungodly world system.  As parents we are responsible before the Lord to train up our children in the way they should go and that did not say to turn them over to the government to do our job.

 So…it is with this thought that we are posting this article about the battle in Sweden that a family is having in the right to home school. Pray for them and let us be praying fervently for our children daily that the Lord keeps His hand on their lives for His glory.

Prayerfully we need to ask our Heavenly Father what He wants for our children and whatsoever He says to you do it with all your heart!

Swedish Homeschoolers Urgently Ask for Help from Homeschooling Families in the USA
by Jeremiah Lorrig : Feb 16, 2012 : HSLDA.ORG

“Swedish families are now fighting for their basic rights and are looking for support from other freedom lovers abroad. I am asking all of my fellow citizens to join me in supporting the Himmelstrands and other families in Sweden who want to homeschool.” -Michael Donnelly
(PURCELLVILLE, VA)—Amid increasing persecution in Sweden, beleaguered homeschool families look to the United States for help.
One homeschool family, the Himmelstrands, chose to homeschool their three children for years before they were denied permission from their municipality in 2008. Now the Himmelstrands face fines in excess of $26,000 (US).
Swedish Homeschool AssocJonas Himmelstrand, president of the Swedish Association for Home Education, appealed yesterday to the supporters in the United States and around the world, “We ask our fellow home educators to email the Swedish authorities on a mass scale about the situation in Sweden. We want to let Swedish officials know that their actions have drawn international attention. Please write to the Swedish Embassy in your country on our behalf.” (Photo: Swedish Association for Home Education)
Although it is likely that there are fewer than 100 homeschoolers in the country of 9 million, Jonas says the persecution “is against all international conventions on human rights.”
Homeschoolers in the United States have started to respond. The Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) and the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) have filed a brief in a Swedish appellate court on behalf of the family. Michael Donnelly, HSLDA’s Director of International Relations, explains the gravity of the Swedish, “Homeschooling is legal in the United States and in many other countries only after decades of tumultuous legislative and legal conflicts. Swedish families are now fighting for their basic rights and are looking for support from other freedom lovers abroad. I am asking all of my fellow citizens to join me in supporting the Himmelstrands and other families in Sweden who want to homeschool.”
