The Fertilized Cell Of A Human Embryo Is Eternal
“For you formed my inward parts; you covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;” Psalm 139:13-14 The fashioning of a human being is near to miraculous. At three weeks after conception, often before the mother even realizes she's pregnant, the baby’s heart is beating. Imagine it, 22 days after conception, the child has grown from a single cell to a baby developed enough to have a beating heart. vs 15: “My frame was not hidden from you, when I was made in secret;” It's a miracle unfolding while yet unseen, a child with functioning organs before it is known that the child even exists, truly it’s the process of being “fearfully and wonderfully made.” vs 16: “Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. and in your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.” From the moment of conception the Lord has already written the story of this little person’s life in a book, recording what was planned for him or her every day of his/her life. It is an inestimable evil to interfere with this and snuff out the life of this child. It is murder and indeed, the blood of that child calls out to the God who was forming it: “And he said (to Cain) ‘What have you done? THE VOICE OF YOUR BROTHER'S BLOOD cries out to me from the ground. So now you are CURSED from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand.'” Genesis 4:10 To take a life is a horrendous evil, regardless the stage of development of the child. We begin developing at the moment of conception when our DNA is uniquely coded, and our development continues until the day of our death. There is no stage at which a person is not a person. From conception there is no day upon which one becomes a person, but wasn’t a person the day before. Who would have the AUTHORITY to declare such a thing isn't true? One live sperm, alive with the father’s DNA joins with one live ovum, alive with the mother’s DNA. When they join, they no longer carry the DNA of either parent, but a whole new set of DNA from the joining of the two. So the life in this cell is not the life and the soul of the father, nor the life and the soul of the mother, it is its own life, a new life, with its own soul and its own DNA. In America today anything goes. America, once beautiful in the Lord’s hands, has become lawless, has become corrupt, a slap in the face to the One who established it. Today the blood of 70 million children cries out to God to avenge their murder. When judgment falls, it will be as in the days of Noah, once that door has been shut everyone outside will perish. God said he will not destroy the world again with a flood, but that the next time …it will be ...by fire. “For this they willfully forget: that by the Word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same Word, are reserved for FIRE until the day of judgment AND PERDITION OF UNGODLY MEN.” 2 Peter 3:5-7 Don’t fool yourself, that day IS going to come. Jesus told us the signs to watch for that would signify the “last days,” and they are all present, every one of them. Soon the door to the ark will close and there will be no more opportunity for repentance. Repent now, come to the Lord now while there is yet time. Do not presume that you will repent at some convenient time later, the Lord knows the intents of the heart and those who think they’ll repent at some time later only deceive themselves and rarely get that chance. God is not mocked (Galatians 6:7). Don’t play with the issues of life and death, salvation and eternal judgment, it’s too serious to take it lightly. The signs are here saying the door is about to close, and soon the statement will be fulfilled for multitudes: “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved!” Jeremiah 8:20 Don't be among them.
