In what seems like a spiteful move aimed against Christians, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam spent Good Friday announcing he signed a bill to roll back many restrictions on abortions.
As Christians prepared to celebrate Resurrection Day, Satan was up to his old tricks. Just as he tried to kill Jesus, he struck hard and fast at the heels of our most vulnerable children.
Our country, indeed the world, seems to increasingly side with the slithery beast when it comes to abortion. Northam did too.
I believe the Bible is clear in Genesis 3:15; God placed enmity between the serpent and the woman and her children:
“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”
I also believe abortion is an expression of the enmity between Satan and the woman and her seed.
Since then, Satan has had it out for the children of God. Cain killed Abel, Pharaoh killed the Hebrew children, and Herod killed the Jewish children in a massive attempt to kill Jesus.
At Jesus’ crucifixion, Satan finally thought he’d killed Jesus. But as he struck His heel, Jesus crushed his head- just as prophesied in Genesis 3:15.
Three days after that gruesome crucifixion, Jesus was resurrected- He’d conquered death and defeated Satan.
Yet the enmity continues murdering children and will continue until the end of time.
As the kingdom of God grew, Nero persecuted Christians and Hitler exterminated an estimated six million Jews and others. Now abortion is the number one killer of the woman’s offspring.
Somehow, I think the coronavirus is a way God can draw our attention back to what is right and good. The world’s tolerance to abortion violates God’s command to not murder and shows a world increasingly embracing an anti-godly agenda. Should we not expect something terrible to happen to us for tolerating such an abomination?
As we celebrate our Lord’s resurrection, let’s remember in the end, God always wins. Abortion will be overturned someday.
