I’m sure with most of you it took less than a minute to affirm that God does not send Babies and young Children to Hell to suffer Eternal Torment and that they are under His Grace until they are of an age of accountability but if you decided He did than you don’t know our Abba Father’s Heart of Love and so the god your worshiping and praying to is counterfeit, at least by your own understanding, but please if you are being deceived by a Church or Cult that He does do this horrific deed, than you need to make a quick exit…. I did!
Yes about 4 years ago, I was told at a Bible Study lead by the Minister and his wife, that my 7 unborn Babies, 3 girls who were Stillborn and the others who died at nearly 5 months gestation, had all gone to Hell to suffer Eternally because I was not a Christian when I conceived them.
Deuteronomy 24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the Children, neither shall the Children be put to death for the fathers; every man shall be put to death for his own sin. 2Kings 14:6 – 2Chronicles 25:4 (KJV)
Thankfully I knew the Scriptures but what if I hadn’t, I would have been devastated to think my Babies were in Eternal Torment in Hell but what would be worse is how would I have felt about God, would I still have thought of Him as Loving, Compassionate, Merciful even in His justice, No defiantly Not! but you can be assured He is and if a Baby or young child dies for whatever reason including Abortion, they go to Heaven just as Jesus affirmed to His Disciples below and He did not say they have to be Baptized first if they were not of an age of understanding good from evil…..
Matthew 19:13-14 Then were there brought unto Him little Children, that He should put His hands on them and pray and the Disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said; Suffer little Children, and forbid them not, to come unto me for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.(KJV)
Since Thursday I have had righteous anger again, after being told by another Church Minister of a different Denomination, that if Babies aren’t Baptized they also go to Hell …. I’m going to Stop right here and show you by the confirmation of Scripture just how deceived they are but first below is what I saw on this Ministers Churches Website, when I asked him about it later, he affirmed that all Children regardless of age, if they die and are not Baptized go to Hell but no where in Scripture does it tell us a Baby has to be Baptized, there is only Believers Baptism confirmed.
Quote…..God offers His grace and forgiveness to all people, including Infants, in the Sacrament of Baptism.
God knows us before we are conceived as His own because He knows we will come to heart repentance which shows we believe in Jesus, He knows us in the womb that is why Abortion is so evil, it is Murder but it seems this Denomination believe if a Child is Stillborn or dies during gestation or any Child that is not Baptized, than they are not saved, they do not have God’s grace and forgiveness and so He sends them to Hell in the Lake of Fire to suffer Eternally.
Of course the Scripture below is in reference to all of us not just little Children or Babies but it does include them too and God warns about punishment for anyone hurting His little ones, so would He than send them to Hell to suffer Eternally in the Lake of Fire because they can’t understand.
Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of men.
Baptism is not just having a bath without soap, we need to believe as the Scripture below confirms, can the Unborn, Stillborn and a Baby or a young Child believe in Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and confess their sin, could I have explained to my unborn Babies about Salvation so they would not go to Hell, could even a Christian have done so.
Matthew 3:6 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judea, and all the region round about Jordan, And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.(KJV)
Mark 16:15-17 And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is Baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.(KJV)
As we see in other Scriptures below, it was those in the Households that believed that were Baptized not Babies or small Children which were under Grace because they could not believe and so repent and be Baptized.
Acts 16:32-34 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway. And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.(KJV)
Acts 18:7-9 And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.(KJV)
Acts 19:3-5 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on Him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were Baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.(KJV)
Acts 8:12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the Kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.(KJV)
God made it very clear that little Children who do not know good from evil and that includes understanding today about Salvation in Christ Jesus, do not suffer as their Parents do who understand the difference and also what is needed to be Saved today but reject Jesus who saves them.
Deuteronomy 1:39 Moreover your little ones and your Children, which you say will be the victims, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in there and unto them will I give it and they shall possess it.
King David as we know repented of all the evil he had done and as confirmed below, he knew were both he and his son would be and that they would be reunited again in Heaven, would he have been at peace and eaten if this was not so.
2 Samuel 12:23 But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.(KJV)
The Scriptures confirm that our faith Sanctifies our Children but it does not save them, they still have to repent and believe in Jesus themselves when their of an age of understanding or our unbelieving husbands and wife’s are saved too (1Corinthians 7:10-17) and if this was True it would contradict other Scripture but our witness may bring them to Salvation and it is why we must not leave them.
Our Faith does not save anyone in our Family but it does Sanctify them setting them apart from those who are perishing so our Children are considered Holy, they are covered by His Grace. The early Christians were Baptized for the dead but this did not save those who had died, it was a sign that they were one with them already in The Spirit, with them having died as believers.
Sickness and death are now part of life on earth but it was not so before the fall of Mankind into sin, God does not plan to kill a Child in the womb for any reason especially not to punish the Parents or does He cause a Baby to be deformed or retarded to teach their Parents patience, yes that was what I was told by a Ministers wife in reference to her retarded Child but all good things come from God not Bad, He raises up He does not pull down and destroy.
Thank you for taking the time to read and ponder on my message.
