Exodus, Chapter 1, Verse 17
The midwives, however, feared God; they did not do as the king of Egypt had ordered them, but let the boys live.
The book of Exodus retells the story of the leaving of the children of Abraham from the land of Egypt. God blessed Abraham’s descendants and they prospered and overpopulated the land. Egyptians then oppressed the Israelite's and took action to control their population by commanding midwives to kill the male children born to the Israelite’s.
Nothing ever changes it seems the midwives, were the king of Egypt’s version of our Planned Parenthood. Yet, they the midwives feared God more than the King and spared life. I do not think anyone in the Planned Parenthood organization has any fear of God. The midwives of Egypt were ordered to kill only the male children of the Israelite's. In our modern world I wonder who the equivalent of the King of Egypt is. I wonder who or what sex and races are the equivalents of the Israelite children?
Let us pray that those within the Planned Parenthood organization and those who support the existence of organizational weapons for the destruction of innocent unborn life may have an awakening to the voice of conscience and fear God: thus preserving life first, then liberty and then the pursuit of happiness. For is not life more precious than liberty; and is not liberty more precious than the pursuit of wealth. It can be in no other order.
As a people and as a nation we have dulled our consciences for too long; this is why the soul of this nation can find no peace. We like the midwives of ancient Egypt must fear God more than Pharaoh. Then and only then will our consciences as a people become unsullied and we will have the strength, courage and loyalty to follow what is right.
