~ “Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”

Jeremiah 1:5…

(words GOD spoke to Jeremiah the priest who became a prophet.)

The Lord said to me,(Jeremiah) “I knew you before you were formed within your mother’s womb; before you were born I sanctified you and appointed you as my spokesman to the world.”

(The Living Bible…Jeremiah1:4

What is God saying to Jeremiah? I ‘knew’ you BEFORE you were formed within your mothers’ womb.

How more precise can this be said?

God has created a child and named it before it was conceived; a soul is born before it is conceived for God hath made plans for and one can not make plans for ‘one’ who is not even thought of nor been born yet; so we are back to this much debated question. When is a baby a person?

A baby is ‘alive’ the minute God has named him/her and that IS before conception.

Now onto Proverbs 6:16 (KJV).

These six things doth the LORD hate, yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

1. A proud look

2. A lying tongue

3. hands that shed innocent blood

4. a heart that deviseth wicked imaginations

5. feet that be swift in running to mischief.

6. a false witness that speaketh lies

7. he that soweth discord among brethren.

Number 3 is as the same as abortion: “hands that shed innocent blood”, what more innocent blood can be shed than the one of a fetus that has no protection but was given inside of the mothers womb?

Words with instructions were written and recorded thousands of years ago and there is NO free choice.

God said, “I knew you before you were in your mothers womb AND thou shall not shed innocent blood which is murder.

These instructions were recorded thousands of years ago in The Bible and stand firm today. Abortion is murder in the eyes of God.

I John 1:9

Fear not, for I am with you;

Be not dismayed for I am your God.

I will strengthen you,

Yes, I will help you,

I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV)

Blessed Father, watch over these children who do not know You; direct their path to someone who can assist them with making the right choice; the choice You Father have written of with precise instructions.

Hold them and love them while they make the right decisions; watch as they bow to their knees in asking for Your help. Wipe their tears sweet Jesus and guide their every move.

In Your most Holy precious name Jesus, we thank You, love You and through You ~ eternal life.


All the glory to You my LORD

Thank you Pastor James Ruddy ( Bethel Assembly of God, Littlestown, PA) for teaching Proverbs 6:16 which truly became a great impact to the writing. I was told to wait upon the Holy Spirit and Oh what a blessing as the writing which has been in my spirit for months just poured out yesterday. Thank You from my heart; God bless
