WANTED!

by Kathi Pelton

As I woke up at exactly 5:55 this morning I saw in my spirit a “WANTED” poster (like those in the old west that were hung up to find criminals). This “wanted poster” had a photo of a baby in the womb upon it and at the bottom it said the word, “ALIVE.” It was if the angels were hanging “Wanted Alive” posters throughout the land.

This is a time in which every social media post that calls to protect the lives of the unborn (or now even the unwanted who are “born alive”) is like the the flood of posters hung throughout the land in the old days to catch a murderer. We are catching the attention of people over and over with declarations and posts that say these babies are WANTED ALIVE!

We are declaring them as wanted by someone— somewhere. They are wanted alive by God! Every person (liberal or conservative) would agree that they are appalled when they hear of a crime where a parent has taken the life of their child. We cannot fathom such a vile crime against innocence at the hand of the one who was to love them most. The betrayal of trust at the hand of a parent is unthinkable. And yet now our nation lights up buildings in celebration of such things! They blithely call it abortion; we call it murder.

I cannot imagine how the recent laws that have been passed to legislate the right for a parent to take the life of their full-term unborn baby will further damage the conscience of mankind. Or the banning of laws that protect a child born alive after an abortion attempt! What kind of depravity has come upon our society that we have placed ourselves as “gods” with the right to make such decisions. We (mankind) were made to be fruitful and multiply and yet we now crush the fruit of our wombs and stand like fruitless trees before our Creator. In the Bible Jesus spoke of cutting down trees that did not bear fruit, but now our nation celebrates the right to cut the fruit out of our wombs. We have been entrusted with these precious little ones and yet we have dehumanized them in the very way that Hitler did the Jews or the KKK did our beautiful African-American brothers and sisters.

God has great and deep compassion for those who are in the grip of fear and pain as they face an unplanned pregnancy, or who live with the pain from a past abortion; and so must we. But this post is not written to them; it is for us as a nation, as the Church (who has been given authority) and to those who have an ear to hear the truth. We cannot stop putting up “posts” or posters that say that babies are WANTED ALIVE!

We also must understand what this declaration of “unwanted babies” releases in the spirit realm. There is already a sense of being “unwanted” by so many people. I am constantly ministering to people who do not understand their value or who feel unwanted. The agreement that our nation and other nations have come into and have made into laws releases a spirit of betrayal, of abandonment, of death, and of suicide into the very atmosphere. It is like saying, “You are unwanted; therefore you should die.”

There are so many couples and families that are longing for a baby!My husband and I adopted our first child and how we wept in joy and in awe when our arms were filled my her beauty. Now, one of our children hasn’t been able to conceive and she and her husband ache for a baby to love and hold. It is so incredibly painful for them—and others like them—to see babies thrown away and discarded like a piece of unwanted trash. They would take them and raise them in loving families in a heartbeat, but apparently for many individuals it is so much easier to just discard these babies and call them tissue.

How is it that we treat our used cans and bottles with more care that these precious living gifts that come from God? We are appalled at the mistreatment of an animal (which we should be!) but we kill our babies and make laws to protect the right to do so.

I am one of those people that cannot watch movies about the Holocaust without being deeply disturbed in my soul for days. I cannot wrap my mind around how anyone can look in the face of a mother and her child or a father and his son and kill them because of their race. I know it is a demonic spirit that comes upon people, but still I cannot imagine such cruelty or hard-heartedness. Yet, here we are doing the very thing to precious and absolutely innocent babies. My heart is broken.

All that I can say is, “God have mercy!” Have mercy upon these babies who are wanted alive. Have mercy upon the ones who have unplanned pregnancies, have mercy upon our nation(s). Have mercy upon mankind!

HE CRIES JUSTICE

I was looking at our savior’s name this morning and out of the letters within His name, Jesus Christ, came forth three separate words:

He cries justice over every injustice! Today, let us join His cry and cry out for justice for the unborn. The world’s future sons and daughters and history makers are being extinguished. Cry mercy and cry for justice.

Join in with us and many voices as we become a voice for the voiceless over the next 50 days. To follow this prayer initiative for the unborn go to. https://www.facebook.com/nateandchristy/

From Hope Deferred to Desire Fulfilled

By Kathi Pelton

It was August of 1987 I was jolted out of a dream—where my greatest desire had been fulfilled—back into the reality of my constant state of hope deferred. In the dream I held my baby daughter. It hadn’t felt like a typical dream; It seemed I had actually been taken somewhere and held my desire fulfilled for the very first time. I had never felt such love or beheld such beauty. When I awoke it was as if she was torn from my arms, and deep waves of grief flooded my soul.  

 

My husband and I had been trying to conceive a baby for years with no success. We had gone through all the medical tests and the problem was with me. I had been going through fertility treatments for over two years at that point, with no sign of improvement. I’d often find myself wondering why so many women who didn’t want their babies or who considered them “disposable” could conceive but my husband and I, who ached for a baby, were left barren. I knew God had not abandoned us but I did not see His plan in this. 

 

Four months after my beautiful dream, we received a call from a pastor who had recently counseled a fifteen-year-old mother; four months earlier she had given birth prematurely to a little girl and this mother wanted to give her up for adoption. The pastor had heard that we wanted a baby but were unable to conceive, and the Lord put it on his heart to call us and ask if we were interested in adopting this little girl. 

 

We were overwhelmed with excitement and immediately said “yes!” Although it took nine months from the day of that phone call to walk out the miraculous story of getting our daughter, not only did we get to bring her home just before her first birthday, but I was four months pregnant when we did! We found out that she was born the same month I had the dream of holding my baby daughter, and the name that her young birth mother gave her meant “longed for” or “desired one.”

 

Now, thirty years later, I am watching our youngest daughter and her husband face the same pain. After years of trying to conceive a child they are in that painful grip of hope deferred. I see the pain in their eyes and the helpless struggle that her husband feels to comfort his wife as she silently aches inside. As her mom, I keenly understand the pain, the constant ache, and the many thoughts of “Why?”

 

The beauty of my story of adoption and the pain of my daughter’s journey of hope deferred made the recent news of the late-term abortion bill in New York State that much more of a sting. The issue has been before us for decades, but for whatever reason this particular ruling has acted as a tripwire that woke many out of the spiritual stupor of prayerlessness. It ignited a burning desire to see this horrific, defiling waste of life stop. 

 

As I prayed the Lord showed me that the church has been in a continuous “ebb and flow” of prayer regarding the issue of abortion. With every ebb the enemy would take that time to advance his agenda to kill the sons and daughters of tomorrow. His deceptions and lies would advance his cause to rob God, and rob the world, of the very inheritance the Son died for. Each year nearly sixty million abortions occur worldwide. Sixty million! 

 

If that fifteen-year-old girl had given into the “ease” of solving her unwanted pregnancy through abortion, our daughter would not exist. That beautiful baby that fulfilled my greatest longing would have been merely a statistic that only our God truly grieved for. 

 

Most abortions are not performed on teens, but rather women in their young twenties. If only they knew that what they carried in their wombs could fill the arms of a couple that longed to cherish and love a son or daughter! If only they understood that even before this child’s conception, God dreamed of this life, made plans for this life, and knew this life  intimately. 

 

If only we, as His people, had stopped to pray. 

 

Something has happened, and it has awakened the church and awakened women to rise up and fight for these little lives that cannot fight for themselves. Their mothers have been blinded and deceived by the enemy of God, the deceiver who has written a different narrative telling our culture that a life is not a life until it is outside of the womb. God forgive us for our prayerlessness and for not facing the evil giant called abortion. 

 

Together we are now going as one, in the power of His might and the name of His Son, to face this giant until it is defeated. No more ebb and flow, but rather a continuous flow of resurrection power coming from those who have received LIFE!  May the word adoption replace abortion and may hope deferred be replaced by desires fulfilled. 

Choose life!
