“The Lord rebuke you, Satan! … Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?” – Zechariah 3:2
Thirty-five hundred years ago, Egypt’s Pharaoh decreed the deaths of all newborn Hebrew boys (Exodus 1:15-22). But God plucked his servant Moses from the fire (2:1-10).
Fifteen hundred years later, King Herod of Judea decreed the deaths of all boys two and under in Bethlehem (Matthew 2:16). But God plucked his Son Jesus Christ from the fire (2:13-15).
Now, thanks to “legal” abortion, godless governments everywhere are decreeing the deaths of malformed or “unwanted” unborn children. Males and females of all ethnicities are victims. No one is safe.
Why is this holocaust taking place? Although the spirit of antichrist is already in the world (1 John 4:3), Satan knows that his time is short (Revelation 12:12). God wants “godly seed,” but Satan is determined to destroy it (Malachi 2:15). God defeated this deceiver through the births of Moses and Jesus, and he’ll do so again. How? Unlike biblical holocausts, no one wants girls. No one wants multi-racial or Down syndrome children either. Is this our clue to God’s plan? What great Christian leader will he pluck from the fire to shepherd his church into the kingdom?
Here and now, will we be like the Hebrew midwives in Moses’ day, disobeying authorities and rescuing unborn children because we fear God (Exodus 1:17-19)? The eternal reward is great.
