The Baby Under the Table
February 25, 2023 2:17 PM
A few days ago, in a dream vision, the Holy Spirit brought me to a large room with a long conference table in the middle. I wasn’t sure if the setting was a government office or a church boardroom. Men were gathered around the table, and the man at the head of the table was a leader figure. They had come together to make a decision. I was invisible to all in the room.
What caught my attention was a small infant on a blanket on the floor underneath the table near the leader’s feet. The baby lay on his belly and cried out the word, “Help!” He was old enough to know and say that word. The baby suffered with an illness or deformity, but the Holy Spirit did not reveal to me what it was. The father of the infant sat to the left of the leader. I now realized that the meeting of the men concerned the fate of the baby.
Suddenly, a man on the same side of the table as the father, spoke out with resolution, “I volunteer to kill the child—somebody will have to do it—but it must be legally approved.” It was not clear to me if the man was a physician or not. This man did not say “mercy kill” or “terminate the life of” but “kill”. He made no bones about what he would be doing.
Right then the father requested to contact a designated social services agency during the meeting. He wanted to confirm the legal procedure for the authorized killing of his child.
When I awoke from this dream vision, I shuddered. Is our society heading toward a future in which the euthanasia of disabled children will be legalized? The Holy Spirit is warning us to protect God’s children, all of them. If we do not guard against the expansion of euthanasia in our nation, we may go the way of Nazi Germany that first euthanized the “unfit”, “useless eaters” and “life unworthy of life”—ultimately expanding the killing to include the Jews and countless others in a greater Holocaust.
Link to a short documentary about Hitler’s T-4 Euthanasia Program:
Psalm 139:13-16 NIV
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
Jeremiah 1:4-8 NIV
4 The word of the Lord came to me, saying,
5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew
before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
6 “Alas, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.”
7 But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. 8 Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.
Matthew 19:13-15 NIV
13 Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them.
14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” 15 When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there.
