On 10/27/2020 I saw a vision of a baby fetus floating in fluid in a glass jar. That vision is what inspired this next testimony.
One day I was talking to a Christian friend who told me that she was worried that the Lord would not forgive her for what she had done. I told her that as long as she confessed whatever it was to the Lord, then He would forgive her. She said “But what if you have done something really terrible, something unforgivable?” At that point I felt led by the Holy Spirit to tell her about my abortion. As soon as I said the word abortion, she burst into tears and told me that she had also had one.
She asked me how I could be so sure that the Lord would forgive her. I said because it’s in the Bible – in the story of Manasseh. When I first came across the story of Manasseh, I literally could not put it down. I kept reading it over and over, just knowing that there was something very important in it. I told her about how Manasseh became king at only 12 years old after his father died. But instead of following the ways of the Lord as his father had done, he did nothing but evil. His greatest sin was child sacrifice and encouraging his people to do the same. The Lord warned him to stop, but he wouldn’t listen. Finally the Lord sent an enemy against him and he was led away in chains and fetters and thrown into prison. When he finally humbled himself and repented, God heard his prayers and restored him to his kingdom. So if God could forgive Manasseh, who sacrificed children, even his own son, and encouraged others to follow suit, I was pretty sure he could forgive her too.
Then she said “But you don’t understand. When you had your abortion, you were unsaved, but I was already a Christian when I had mine”. I said “Well, look at David. If ever there was a man after God’s heart, it was him. But he was not perfect. He messed up big time when he conspired to have Uriah killed so he could keep Bathsheba’s pregnancy a secret and have her for himself. That was murder. But did God kick him to the curb and condemn him to hell? No, because David was genuinely sorry for what he had done. He acknowledged his sin and asked for forgiveness. Now David did pay some heavy consequences for what he did, but God did forgive him. So if God could forgive David, someone who was a Christian for many years before the murder, why wouldn’t he also forgive you?”
1 JOHN 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
2 CHRONICLES 33 (Manasseh’s story)
2 CHRONICLES 33:12 Now when he was in affliction, he implored the Lord his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers, 13and prayed to Him; and He received his entreaty, heard his supplication, and brought him back to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord was God.
2 SAMUEL 11 (David’s sin)
2 SAMUEL 12:13 So David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord.” And Nathan said to David, “The Lord also has put away your sin; you shall not die. 14However, because by this deed you have given great occasion to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme, the child also who is born to you shall surely die.”
