Never would I have thought that any church or ministry would be prochoice/proabortion. Or at least that’s what I believed 35+ years ago. We’ve been in prolife ministry since 2008 and I am still overcome with sadness and horror of how the Pulpit handles the subject of legal baby killing – abortion.
I had a prophetic dream last night, one that should chill a Pastor to the bone. God showed me many things in this dream; He used my husband, my adult son, his pregnant girlfriend [which is actually not the case btw], and a host of people who were supposed to be family and friends. It was dark, it was foreboding, and it was hard to see. But first let me say that God shows me many things in dreams but never do the characters look as they normally do, actually unrecognizable. It like looking at your child, knowing it’s him [or her], but looks completely different. However, let me get to the dream…
God used people I love and trust to get the point driven home. My husband was going to take my son and his girlfriend to get an abortion. Naturally, I was horrified and couldn’t figure out why he was not. Every time I tried to talk to them, there was distraction. Everywhere I turned there were people telling them the abortion is okay. I spoke, I yelled, I pleaded, I physically pushed people back, and barely a head turned my way. I saw a slight eye glance to me from the ‘husband’ as if he unacknowledged or dismissed me. As I turned, they disappeared while other family members sent me to where they said they were, and it was someone else laughing at me. I woke up.
Here is the interpretation: The Evangelical [Non-Denominational] Pulpit is silently accepting abortion because of personal situations that make it okay to them, preaches nothing in the meantime to soothe their troubled and sinful acts of abortion. SO, my husband and I are ordained ministers, my husband having been a Pastor in our home and an associate at other churches in the past. I love him and trust him, as well as our family. The Church becomes a Christian’s family, the Pastor the head of the home and Church, thusly trust is assumed much like with your natural family. In my personal story, I trusted my mother and family, but they turned me over to the Devil, to abortion.
Bottom line: The Pulpit is the CULPRIT, ‘do as I say’ rather than be the example. The Church is continually hoodwinked because Pastors step away from the Word and the Resurrection to silently accept abortion [and other abominations]. The Bible has never said abortion is a viable way to correct a sin problem, not one time. Jesus told the woman caught in adultery to go and sin NO MORE, not cover it up and shut up.
Out of great failure comes testimony. I am reminded of Who is Light and who is darkness; we cannot see in the dark:
‘Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” John 8:12
Without THE Light we see nothing and know even less. How can the Church expect to know if the Pulpit will not preach and teach the unabridged Word of God?
Jesus is the Light, He is the Answer. I believe the Pulpit forgets that Jesus was tempted for 40 days and is quite aware of ALL sin, especially ones committed in the dark like abortion. But He does offer us HOPE and a cure:
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2
This, my friends, begins in the Pulpit and should spread like wildfire throughout the Church and beyond. The Will of God is not darkness even though He is there in those dark times. Abortion is never the right answer to any question. A weak Pulpit is what ails the Church and chooses the battles that have no eternal value.
The prophetic dream I had should be a wakeup call to every Church-going Christian who supports their Pastor and his Ministry. I’ve always said ‘If you don’t ask, you won’t know’ – do you know your Pastor’s position on abortion? Have you ever heard the word abortion from the Pulpit? You have a right to know.
