War in the Womb (Part 1)

Exposing Satan’s End-Time Plot

The bloodiest battle in all of human history did not take place on a field, but it has and still is being fought inside wombs all around the world. Since Roe V. Wade in 1973 (Supreme Court case that legalized abortion), there have been over fifty-six million abortions in the U.S. alone (over one billion worldwide since 1980). This decree of death that has been over our land has not only claimed the lives of innocent children, but it has also left countless women emotionally wounded, empty and scarred. While many have wasted their energy wrongfully approaching the horror of abortion as a political issue, Satan has been smirking beneath the small and shallow graves of an entire generation. In our fight against this injustice, we (the Church) must recognize the deeper reality at hand and why it is that the womb has become such a war zone in our day.

At the time of greatest threat, the enemy doesn’t focus his attack on those who are already matured, but he has a track record of targeting infants because he understands the potential of any given life. From the very beginning of time, God clearly prophesied that the Seed (Christ) of the woman (Israel) would one day crush the head of the serpent (Satan; Gen. 3:15), which was accomplished through the cross, but now He is waiting for us to “cash the check” He wrote in the garden and signed on the cross as we work with Him to crush Satan under our feet (The Church).

And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. (Rom. 16:20)

There are three clear “transitional generations” spoken of in the Bible that we should pay firm attention to:

  1. The Generation of Moses
  2. The Generation of Jesus’ First Coming
  3. The Generation of Jesus’ Second Coming

Each of these generations mark a transition between how God relates to man, and they have all been prophesied about in Scripture. Now if we simply look at history, we can see that every time the people of God were about to transition into a new phase of His redemptive plan, Satan has been known to assault the womb (Ex. 1:16, 22; Matt. 2:16; Roe V Wade). This is because he knows prophecy better than we do.

Generation of Moses Foretold:

Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold, horror and great darkness fell upon him. Then He [God] said to Abram, “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. And also the nation whom they serve I will judge, afterward they shall come out with great possessions.” (Gen. 15:13)

Satan’s Assault:

Look the children of Israel are more mightier than we…Every son who is born you shall cast into the river. (Ex. 1:9,22)

Generation of Jesus’ First Coming Foretold:

Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated, “God with us.” (Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:23)

I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel. (Gen. 3:15)

When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled…and when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. (Matt. 2:3-4)

But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are not the least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you shall come a Ruler who will shepherd My people Israel. (Micah 5:2; Matt. 2:6)

Satan’s Assault:

Then Herod…put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men. (Matt. 2:16)

Generation of Jesus’ Second Coming Foretold:

For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of birth pains. (Matt. 24:7-8)

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. (Matt. 24:14)

And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams…(Joel. 2:28-32; Acts 2:17)

…the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant those who mourn in Zion—to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that then may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified. (Isa. 61:2-3)

The LORD goes out like a mighty man, like a man of war he stirs up his zeal; he cries out, he shouts aloud, he shows himself mighty against his foes. For a long time I have held my peace; I have kept still and restrained myself; now I will cry out like a woman in labor; I will gasp and pant….And I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know…(Isa. 42:13-16)

But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above…(Dan. 12:1-3)

Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony and they did not love their lives to the death. (Rev. 12:10-11)

Satan’s Assault:

Although the murder of infants has tainted human history for ages, it is now being boldly decreed by governments and tolerated by society more (especially in our nation) than ever before.

It is now the year 2013, forty years since the legalization of abortion in the United States. If you are reading this article, you should know that you have been given a precious gift called life, and as we approach the end of the age, you must ask the question, “Why me?” I believe we are stepping into the final and most crucial phase of God’s redemptive plan, in which God is looking to bring forth deliverers out of the womb of the Church who will lead His people through the wilderness of these final days, and partner with Him in the restoration of all things (Acts 4:21; Eph. 1:10; Mal. 4:5-6). Unfortunately, the enemy recognizes this more than we do; therefore, he is the only one taking appropriate action.

God Has A Plan

And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ – everything in heaven and on earth. (Eph. 1:10, NLT)

In Exodus chapter one, we see that despite heavy bondage and persecution, “the children of Israel were fruitful and increased abundantly, multiplied and grew exceedingly mighty; and the land was filled with them” (Ex. 1:7). Because they were a threat to the kingdom of this new king, he set “taskmasters over them to afflict them with their burdens…But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were in dread of the children of Israel” (Ex. 1:8-12). Similarly, as the Holy Spirit was being poured out and moving through the early church with the “Lord [adding] to the church daily those who were being saved,” the enemy sought to destroy them with relentless persecution only to watch them multiply and grow stronger than ever. As the days get darker, Scripture tells us clearly that God’s people will still shine brighter through the blackest hours of human history (Isa. 60:1-3). It is absolutely vital that we recognize and expose the why behind Satan’s end-time plot, so that we can march forward with confidence into our God ordained destiny. Hear me weary one; do you realize your potential? Do you understand that before you were formed in the womb of your mother, God knew you and set you apart for a reason that will resound throughout eternity? This thing is so much bigger than you, yet the Lord is inviting you to bring real impact to your generation. In Christ, YOU are part of God’s plan to crush the enemy. You are truly alive for such a time as this.

“Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of their faces, for I am with you to deliver you,” says the Lord. (Jer. 1:7-8)

And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all. (Acts 4:33)

Why did the nations rage, and the people plot vain things? The kings of the earth took their stand, and the rulers were gathered together against the LORD and against His Christ. (Ps. 2:1-2; Acts 4:25-26)
