This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #334, titled, “Jesus Died for Everyone Including The Unborn.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.
GOD’S VIEW ON LIFE
The Almighty God Himself refers to the unborn as literal human beings. In His own words, He stated that the virgin Mary, “… was found with CHILD of the Holy Ghost.” This verse refers to Jesus Christ when He was still in Mary’s womb.
When speaking of the unborn baby, John the Baptist, the Bible states in Luke 1:41, “…the BABE leaped in her womb..” Refusing a helpless baby the right to be born is murder and is therefore against God’s will. Proverbs 6:16-17 states, “These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,”
THE CHOICE FOR LIFE!
Friend, did you know that God’s Holy Word speaks of others who are unborn in a different kind of way? However, these can choose to be born or not. In the Bible, Jesus explained this to a very moral and religious man named Nicodemus. He said in John 3:3, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Thinking that Jesus was talking about a physical birth, “Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?” Jesus’ answer was that a man must have a second birth — a spiritual birth — to enter into the Kingdom of God. Jesus said in John 3:5, “…Except a man be born of water (from the mother’s womb) and of the Spirit (from the Word of God), he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” Jesus did not use the word “water” in this context to refer to baptism; instead, He is speaking of the physical birth. Jesus reaffirms this meaning in verse six, when He said, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh (Physical Birth); and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit (Spiritual Birth).”
WHY A SECOND BIRTH?
According to the Bible, God said that Adam, the first man, would die the very day that he ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. In Genesis 2:17, God warned Adam, “…in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Adam did not die a physical death that day. His death was a spiritual death, which passed upon all mankind. The Bible says in Romans 5:12, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” All mankind has inherited spiritual death from Adam and must be “born again” to have spiritual life.
GOD LOVES THE UNBORN!
Jesus told Nicodemus how to be born spiritually in John 3:14-15, “…even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.: Please notice that only belief in God is required for spiritual life, and it is nothing you can earn through doing good works. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world (spiritually unborn), that he gave his only begotten Son (to die on the cross), that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” God promised those who believe in Him would have everlasting life, not a probationary life.
If you have never been born again, you are spiritually unborn; but God loves you, and He has made a way for you to become His spiritual child. Friend, according to God’s Holy Word, you are a creation of God, but you are not considered a child of God until you are born of the Holy Spirit. The only way that you can become a child of God is by putting your complete faith in Jesus Christ to save your soul. God makes this very clear in His Holy Word. The Bible says in Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” Think of it! The very moment that you call on Jesus Christ, trusting Him to save your soul, you are birthed into the Family of God and you are His child forever! John 1:12 says, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
WHAT IS YOUR CHOICE?
Do you choose to be born of the Spirit by completely trusting in Jesus Christ to save your soul forever. The Bible says in Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
Or are you content with being born once, and choose to remain spiritually unborn. The Bible says in John 3:36, “…he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
If you are willing to trust Jesus Christ with all of your heart so you can go to Heaven, please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.
