Who Speaks for God on Abortion?

On Thursday night, 8th August 2019, the NSW Legislative Assembly followed other Australian states and territories in authorising acts of defiance against the will of God, by passing the so called “Reproductive Health Care Reform Bill 2019” in the NSW Lower House – subject to review in the Upper House.

One may well ask how can killing babies in the womb be called reproductive health?

Those who voted ‘yes’ for abortion voted to make legal on earth that which is illegal in heaven.

This is a direct violation of the teaching of Christ and it will unleash harm and suffering on the people of NSW, if this Bill is passed into law by the NSW Upper House.

This ghoulish injustice must be reverted across the nation, as it is in direct contradiction to the Word of God:

“You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13 NIV)

“….. whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:19 Amplified translation).

Every reader’s heart should be moved towards defending the rights of the unborn as we become better informed on the truth and the love of God for every life that has been conceived. What greater care does a mother have than for the new life within her?

Let us be clear on this reality: ‘pro-choice’ is a continuation of the sin of Eve. To be ‘pro-choice’ on life and death is to be a consumer of the metaphorically named tree of the knowledge of good and evil. From the beginning of time God has warned that this independent trajectory ends in death (Genesis 2:15-17).

Those people, like those in Emily’s List, who are propagating the doctrine of ‘pro-choice’ are proof of the truth in Holy Scripture. Their coterie of death is but a flash in the pan of human history compared with the beauty, wisdom and truth of the Book of Life that precedes them by thousands of years and will succeed them to eternity.

Science has now caught up with the Bible that life begins at conception and begins in a flash of light. This truth is depicted in this photograph of the instant when a male sperm fertilizes a female ovum:

Fertilisation of Ovum

Now we need to pay close attention to how God feels about the sacrifice of children:

“They (the Hebrews) have built pagan shrines to Baal in the valley of Ben-Hinnom, and there they sacrifice their sons and daughters to Molech. I have never commanded such a horrible deed; it never even crossed my mind to command such a thing. What an incredible evil, causing Judah to sin so greatly!” (Jeremiah 32:35).

How can anyone today say that the modern sacrifice of unborn children on the altar of choice is any better than those who sacrificed their children to the false god of Molech?

How did we become so calloused as to legislate death to the innocent in the womb?

We have been deceived and lied to and we have all too often swallowed deception. The sin of silence has then perpetrated throughout the wider church where we have refused to speak out against injustice against the innocent in the womb.

You are invited to click here to read a short piece by Doctor Bernard Nathanson, who in 1969 was Co-Founder of the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws. This man personally holds himself responsible for 75,000 abortions – before he changed to become pro-life.

Read Dr Nathanson’s own account of how they manipulated the media with lies and deception to propagate abortion. How then can the NSW Parliament legislate death to the voiceless innocent, when these lies and deception are now public knowledge? You are invited to google Doctor Bernard Nathanson to verify these facts for yourself.

His five-minute testimony to the US House Judiciary Committee should convince anyone with any sensibility of the need to revert abortion laws to protect life.

Intentionally allowing babies who survive abortion to die after birth!

This is a barbaric consequence of the legislation passed by the NSW Lower House last Thursday night. Tanya Davies MP, NSW State Member for Mulgoa (LIB), moved an amendment that if a live child is born after an attempted abortion, then that child must be given the same neonatal care as would be given to any other child born at the same stage of pregnancy and in the same medical condition.

This amendment was voted down 57 to 31. Even the Premier of NSW, Gladys Berejiklian (LIB) voted against this amendment to care for a baby who is living outside the womb after a failed abortion.

How can we allow such barbarism to continue in our nation?

Click here and go to page 247 of NSW Hansard to read for yourself this aberration against life. This Bill authorises murder according to the NSW Criminal Trial definition:

Criminal Trial Courts Bench Book — Offences

Click here to read the formal definition of murder in the NSW Crimes Act 1900 that states:

“… where a voluntary act or omission of the accused causes the death of the deceased and the act is committed with:

1. an intent to inflict grievous bodily harm, or
2. an intent to kill, or
3. reckless indifference to human life…

Surely this NSW abortion bill, that recklessly condones leaving living babies to die after birth, is an act of murder according to the above definition and must be expunged.

Here is the normal protection denied when the NSW Lower House voted down the following amendment:

“If a live child is born, the child must be given the same neonatal care as would be given to any other child born at the same stage of pregnancy and in the same medical condition.”

This bill in the NSW Lower House defies the law of heaven in the Ten Commandments:

“You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13)

Counter to the five main pro-abortion arguments:

1. What about abortion in the case of rape?
In the opinion of the author, if a woman is raped she should have a pregnancy check and if pregnant seek God as to whether she should continue to carry the ovum that was illegally fertilised. This is a shocking scenario where the mother needs tender loving care in her decision making before God. This is not a matter to be decided by law.

2. What about where the mother’s life is in danger?
There is no law preventing the best medical help in such circumstances.

3. What about the risk of giving birth to a possibly deformed baby?
Extreme care is needed in such circumstances because medical prognosis has too often been in error in such assumed situations.

4. Well there are not many late term abortions, are there?
Click here for the late term abortion figures from the Consultative Council on Obstetric and Pediatric Mortality and Morbidity, Victoria. These records show that in 2010 there were a total of 366 post 20-week terminations and in 2011 a total of 378.

5. What right does a male have to tell a woman what she should do with her body?
It has now been clearly established that the baby in a mother’s womb is not her body but another body being incubated that she is duty bound to love and protect

Would You Consider Abortion in the following Situations?

1. A pastor and wife have 14 children. Now she finds she’s pregnant with number 15 and they’re living in tremendous poverty – would you recommend she gets an abortion?

2. A father is sick with syphilis, the mother has TB and they already have four children. The first is blind, the second is dead, the third is deaf, and the fourth has TB. Then she finds she’s pregnant again – would you recommend abortion?

3. A white man raped a 13-year-old black girl and she got pregnant. If you were her parents, would you recommend abortion?

4. A teenage girl is pregnant when not married. Her fiancé is not the father of the baby and he’s very upset – would you recommend abortion?

If you answered yes to any of these scenarios, then:

  • in the first case you would have killed John Wesley
  • in the second case you would have killed Beethoven
  • in the third case you would have killed Ethel Waters, the great black gospel singer
  • and in the fourth case, you would have killed Jesus Christ.

Conclusion

How many brilliant scientists, doctors and nurses, outstanding sports champions, gifted musicians, creative artists, futuristic innovators, passionate educators, teachers and inspiring national leaders have had their lives cruelly terminated in the womb?

It’s time to revert this callous disregard in our nation for the God given gift of life and see every person as precious and valuable from conception to the end of their days:

“Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are he who took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is continually of you.” (Psalms 71:6 ESV)

“Speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves, for the rights of all who need an advocate.” (Proverbs 31:8 CJV).

The Greatest Gift to Aboriginal People started on 26 Jan 1788

At the behest of William Wilberforce to British PM William Pitt, Chaplain Johnson brought the Gospel to the Aboriginal people on the First Fleet.

Next Sunday 3 Feb commemorates the first sermon preached on Australian shores from Psalm 116:12-14…

What can I offer the Lord for all he has done for me? I will lift up the cup of salvation and praise the Lord’s name for saving me. I will keep my promises to the Lord in the presence of all his people.

Let us give great thanks for the gift of salvation in Christ to all Australians from 26 Jan 1788.

Who will Run Australia in 2019?

People, we are now in the last phase of the culture war that is determining who will run Australia in the future: God or a Humanist-led State?

A huge shift took place a year ago with the national plebiscite on Same Sex Marriage. In that vote by the people of Australia the choices were clear: maintain marriage according to the written Word of God, or cave-in to a culture that has no respect for God.

Left-wing political elites are following a global humanist strategy that grew from the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory that started between the wars in Germany in 1923. The objective of this philosophy is to destroy the three institutions of God on earth:

  • Family                    Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:4-6
  • Government         Romans 13:1-2
  • Church                   Matthew 16:13-19

This global conspiracy has been incredibly successful and has succeeded in the West where militant communism failed. This culture shift is sometimes referred to as the “long march through the institutions”. This movement pursued culture change that has torn down biblical teaching on marriage, morality, sexuality, gender and, above all else, God’s truth.

Every child passing through State education is now a product of this way of thinking. Sadly, Christians who do not know or follow the Bible have been seduced by the Critical Thinking philosophy of neo-Marxism. The outcome is a loss of the understanding of what made the West great in the first place.

If you don’t understand the good that built the present, how can you build the future?

If you are not familiar with the truth of the Word of God, how will you discern deception?

In the plebiscite on Same Sex Marriage many voted YES because:

  1. they were sick and tired of the battle and just wanted to get it out of the way
  2. they thought there are no real consequences so just give LGBTQI what they want
  3. they thought we must be tolerant and not be judgmental
  4. they wanted to be kind and just let love be love.

But here’s the rub: did voters research God’s plan for family according to His written Word and vote NO to SSM to be aligned with the teaching of the Bible? (Gen 2:24, Matt 19:4-6)

Now that we have SSM in Australia the cultural elites have moved into the final phase of their takeover plan. A take-over that was authorised by the Federal Parliament when it legislated Same Sex Marriage.

Cultural Take-over Plan of the Left

Ten steps to destroy the Family, Church and Government:

  1. Easy divorce – killing marriage
  2. Easy abortion – killing babies
  3. Easy Euthanasia – killing the infirm
  4. Redefine marriage (now any two persons)
  5. Redefine family (no longer mum, dad and the kids)
  6. Redefine gender (no longer male and female as God made us – Matt 19:4)
  7. Demand tolerance while propagating immorality and a tsunami of pornography
  8. Increase debt and Government hand-out dependency
  9. Remove freedom of speech through hate laws
  10. Remove freedom of religion through anti-discrimination laws that make biblical morality illegal – and this is the hot issue with the current Penny Wong Bill before the Senate.

You have been Warned

We need to take this warning very seriously. Please Google the “Frankfurt School” and do your own homework on these clear and present dangers.

The extreme Left have largely succeeded in their long march through the institutions. They already have control of State education systems through the so-called “Safe Schools” program. Neo-Marxist ideology dominates higher education and much of the media in our nation.

Now they are gunning for independent religious schools.

The extreme Left already dominate Labor and the Greens. These parties are not letting up in their take-over plans. If given authority by the people at forthcoming elections  they will complete the above 10-point agenda. This is not a secret, it’s all reported in the daily media.

The Liberal Party has also been deeply infiltrated by the Left. Our only hope is for high calibre Bible believing followers of Christ becoming influential in the governance of our nation. If we don’t, the devil will certainly move his people into positions of power and authority.

Yet despite all this God has graciously given us a genuinely Christian Prime Minister and a Jewish Treasurer who is also Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party. The coming Federal election is our opportunity to vote FOR the Judeo/Christian leaders we don’t deserve.

On the other hand, apathy, ignorance and silence will destroy the future of our nation.

If you do nothing the following will take place in religious schools, churches and Bible colleges:

  • LGBTIQ+ individuals (about 2.5% of the population) will demand transgender pronouns
  • Biological males who identify as female will demand the ability to enter female toilets and change-rooms and compete in female sports
  • It will become a hate crime to teach that marriage is between a man and a woman
  • It will become a hate crime to teach Biblical morality that differs from state laws
  • It will become illegal to discipline anyone engaging in state approved immorality.

Unless you are actively aware of what is happening in our nation this year, you will lose the ability to stop the State replacing God as the source and judge of right and wrong.

If you vote for Labor or the Greens, you will be voting for the future persecution of every person who believes and upholds the Word of God as a testimony to the nations.

What you can do in 2019

  • Register your objection today to Labor Senator Penny Wong’s proposed laws to outlaw biblical morality in Christian schools, bible colleges and institutions: See the attached model letter with a submission deadline of 11 February.
  • Get involved in an organisation where you can be influential in bringing the principles and values of the Kingdom of God to the governance of our state and nation.
  • Join a national prayer movement such as Canberra Declaration, Australian Prayer Network
  • Do NOT vote Labor or the Greens in the coming NSW and Federal elections.
  • Get to know the candidates in your State and Federal electorates and vote for the candidates and parties who are most likely to stand-up for Godly values.

Family Love beats Culture Wars

Over the last century our family has been through the worst global upheavals of history, including two world wars. On my Father’s side all his family, with the exception of one survivor, were murdered in the ovens at Auschwitz. This was the result of extreme Right Nazi politics.

Post World War 2 our family was split by the extreme Left politics of Stalin, communism and the resulting cold war.

In Ireland, our family survived the “troubles” that split a nation with the politics of violence and anarchy.

And now we see anger and hatred dividing the world in a social revolution of “identity politics”. This has fallen to the level of people saying: ‘if you don’t agree with me I don’t want to know you’. Even splitting families!

Take the riots at Berkeley University where windows have been smashed and fires lit in riots AGAINST freedom of speech. 50 years ago there were riots FOR freedom of speech at the same university. The world has gone crazy.

So what can we learn from history that can help us today?

Through the global upheavals of the last century our family has seen the overcoming triumph of family love. This love has won out over Nazism, Communism, Anti-Semitism, anarchy, murder, violence and global war.

Family love has its source in the love between Father God and his beloved son Jesus. It is the glue that holds the world together and delivers hope for the future.

The Apostle Peter concluded his life with these words: “Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.” (1 Peter 4:8).

So let us treasure family love as the greatest redeeming force for good in the universe and let it guide us through life as undivided overcomers.

Rapacious Attack on Israel’s Right to Exist this Weekend

This Sunday 15 January 2017, Seventy nations will meet in Paris to try and enforce the establishment of a Palestinian State on Israeli land. Here is a brief summary and a call to action.

Israel is accused of occupying Palestinian land – but is this true?

The title deeds to the land are written in the Bible and were endorsed by the UN in 1948. These deeds are part of an everlasting covenant initiated by God with his chosen people and affirmed over and over again in the Word of God.

You can click on the following links to read in Gen 17:1-8 the first covenant declaration over the land initiated by God with Abraham. This was re-affirmed in Gen 35:9-13 and Exodus 23:31-33. The highest authority of the land rests with God, not the United Nations. It is written in Acts 17:24-28.

Those who do not accept the sovereignty of God and do not understand the permanency of his promises will bring great pain upon themselves and their nations. Please take the most serious attention to the following prophecy in Zech 12:1-3:

“A prophecy: The word of the Lord concerning Israel.
The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person, declares: “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.”

In modern times the so called “Occupied Territories” were never “owned” by the Palestinians. In 1948 the West bank and East Jerusalem passed from a British mandate to Jordon. In 1967 Israel warned Jordon not to attack, but they did and Jordon lost these Territories to Israel in the Six Day War. As a result of the Yom Kippur war Jerusalem was re-unified according to its Biblical covenant.

Now, next weekend on the 15th January 2017 in the Jewish year 5777, seventy nations of the world will meet in Paris to try and take land from Israel again – including the Western Wall and the Garden of Gethsemane. There are some 800,000 Israelis who live in these territories and Israel is not going to give this land up.

Jewish Rabbis define 70 nations as the nations of the world. This comes from the 70 nations listed in Genesis 10. It is also significant that 70 nations were represented in Israel at the funeral of Shimon Peres on 30 September 2016.

Now cast the immediacy of this coming historical event in 2017 with the above prophecy from Zechariah 12.

Recently on the 8th January the Lord impressed upon me that this gathering of nations on Sunday 15 January would be a “RAPACIOUS” attack on Israel’s right to exist. I didn’t know the meaning of the word when it was given to me in the early hours of the morning – which is confirmation that it was from the Lord and not just out of my own head. Please look up the dictionary definition of the word for yourself to gain important insight into the significance of what is happening. While God will take care of Israel according to biblical prophecy, it is the responsibility of the Body of Christ to be awake, vibrantly aware and obedient to God at such a time as this.

Finally we note that in a 2015 poll conducted by the Palestinian Centre for Public Opinion, Arab residents in East Jerusalem would rather live as democratic citizens in Israel than in a Palestinian State under Fatah rules and terrorist organisations like Hamas.
