Matthew 18:2 " And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

18:3  And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

18:4  Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

18:5  And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

18:6  But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."
One thing that stands out in the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ, He loved little children. He loved talking to them, touching them, and blessing them. There is something about the innocence of a small child that touched our Lord’s heart.  Why the special connection with all the parables about little children, about becoming as little children, and why did our Lord have a tenderness for a small child, say under 5 years old?  Further down in the same chapter, Jesus reveals the special place a small child has to the Father and to the Son.
Matthew 18:10  "Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven."
These children belong to God. They are tended to by angels that see the face of God continually. They are entrusted to their parents as guardians of their well being and their instruction in righteousness. Children are special in God’s eyes, as they are innocent. They have not learned the difference between what is evil and what is good. If you do good to a child, you receive the Spirit of Christ, because that child belongs to Him. If that child through whatever distress would suddenly leave this earth, they would immediately go right back to the Father who gave him or her life.
There was a instance in Mark chapter 10, where Jesus rebuked the disciples as they were hindering the children from coming to Him. This sorely displeased our Lord, because of the special place He had for them in His heart:
10:13 " And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.

10:14  But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God."
When  a person accepts Jesus Christ as personal Savior, He becomes as a little child. Children do not question what is told them. They perceive that what is being said is truth. When the Holy Spirit pricks your conscience and your heart is heavy with the burden of sin that covers your life and weighs you down, you accept what is being told as being truth, even though you may not totally understand it, but as a little child, you believe by faith. An adult becomes as a little child in their heart and mind in all its innocence and believes what the Holy Spirit is drawing them to. Faith as a little child:
Ephesians 2:8  "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

2:9  Not of works, lest any man should boast."
We believe God. He said it, so what the bible says and what I’m feeling in my spirit is truth. We don’t question it, much like a little child. The intellectual, rational thinker will try to dissect it, to analyze, or use the scientific method on the concept and defeat the calling of the Holy Spirit by their inability to reconcile the infinite with their finite mind.

So in thinking about children, being a child, or becoming innocent as a child, why are children so special in God’s eyes?
Psalms 127:3  "Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

127:4  As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

127:5  Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate."
In ancient times, and not so long in the recent past, children were the heritage of the parents and given by God. They stood up for their parents in the gate, which was a synonym for the town square. When people tried to abuse an elderly person, who will stand up for them? The children stand up for their parents, or they should. Not too long ago, a man that had many sons, was thought of as rich, because many sons meant the family would prosper because of so many strong hands.
Psalms 144:11  "Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:

144:12  That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:

144:13  That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:

144:14  That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.

144:15  Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD."


Let’s fast forward to our modern day era. There was a time that children were the crowning glory of the father, and the delight of their mother. Large families were common and the worth of their offspring were worth more than gold or silver. It was their heritage, their life, and their glory.

I have spoken of the abuse of children in past sermons, from ancient times till our day, and one thing is for certain. That certain judgment comes to the society that destroys their heritage, the fruit of their womb, and the glory that has faded to an inconvenience.

Lamentations chapter 4 applies aptly to our day:

4:4  "The tongue of the sucking child cleaveth to the roof of his mouth for thirst: the young children ask bread, and no man breaketh it unto them.

4:5  They that did feed delicately are desolate in the streets: they that were brought up in scarlet embrace dunghills.

  4:6  For the punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of my people (mothers) is greater than the punishment of the sin of Sodom, that was overthrown as in a moment, and no hands stayed on her."

God will judge the mother who sacrifices her living or unborn children in the name of convenience. Woe be to that mother who does not repent of this so great an evil in sack cloth and ashes.


Although, in my opinion, Muslims have many children for the wrong reason, they understand that a people cannot thrive without many children. They realize that without children, they will not conquer the world as we know it. In Europe, they silently, methodically, have as many babies as the mother can produce. Why has Europe been overrun with the Muslim population? Simple fact is that they are having many more children than their counterparts. Europe realizes this and in Germany with the German population in decline, they offer any female that will have a child and born German, $12,000 to have a child. They understand that  practices that have limited their population and has favored the Muslim community will be their demise and the destruction of their way of life and their government. Why is our “free” civilization in dire peril? Because we have allowed our enemies who hate us to procreate to our being overrun with their pagan ways through their offspring, their children.


And what can we say about the United States? Since Roe v. Wade we have destroyed a whole generation of taxpayers. It is estimated that we have killed, through abortion and the ghastly partial birth abortion, roughly 50-60 MILLION babies. How dare we cry of our economic woes. Yet we cry of insolvency of Social Security and Medicare. Where would America be today if these 60 MILLION babies were working citizens paying taxes? Where would the economy be, if these innocent children had been given a chance at life? What would our economic situation be if we, as a nation had honored God’s commands of this single Commandment, “Thou shalt not kill.”? No politician or leader will even discuss what we have done to get ourselves in such a mess economically when we have championed abortions of convenience and financed abortion clinics with taxpayer dollars. We have passed our children through the fire, much the way the ancients sacrificed their children to their pagan gods, except the god we sacrifice to, is ourselves.

I’m reminded of a story, a most grisly story of a “lady” who was in her third trimester of her pregnancy and visited an abortion clinic to end this little ones life. Do you understand the implications of this? Have you ever seen the documentary “THE SILENT SCREAM”? On the website concerning this documentary, we find this introduction:

“In 1984, the man who two decades earlier had co-founded the leading pro-abortion group (NARAL), released the startling documentary, The Silent Scream. In this video, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who once ran the nation's largest abortion clinic and claims he was personally responsible for 75,000 abortions, provides a clinical and dispassionate abortion presentation. The reason he did this was to show, for the first time, what abortion looks like through ultrasound technology. For it was through this technological development that Dr. Nathanson came to understand the evils of abortion and to repudiate his former support for it.” If you wish and can stomach the images that are shown of a pre-term abortion, then visit this website:

If after seeing this documentary about a pre-term baby being torn apart for the convenience of the mother and someone cannot gasp in horror and become determined to eradicate this abomination in our culture, then nothing will touch their mind or their heart. And what of this woman who aborted her 7 month old “fetus” (I use that term loosely, as this was a near term human being able to live outside the womb).  She had this innocent life extinguished because she didn’t want to miss the opportunity to go skiing that winter!! Instead of aborting our children, we should be loving them. On the flip side of this ghastly reality, I have to share this you-tube presentation called "Don't kill me, hug me." God has given each of us, who have children, a gift. Cherish them and fight for others to live. Go here now and share this with others.

The scientific community likes to call this human being a fetus, so that it won’t seem like it is such a big deal and the horror that it really is. Folks, this is a living  human being that qualifies for a place in humanity with only the need for oxygen to inflate it’s lungs and breath air.  But that does not diminish the baby whose heart is beating at a few weeks of conception. Or the “fetus” that tries to escape the pain of an abortionist butcher knife. If they could make a sound, all of them would most certainly……..SCREAM!


How long will God allow this abomination to continue? Read your bible when it comes to sin committed against children. Read about passing the children through the fires of Molech when they had sexual acts with children before burning them in their pagan god’s fire on its altar. (see past articles on my website). Read what the end result was to any civilization that mistreats its heritage, the children. As God warned Israel that displaced the Canaanites before them for the same practices, God’s patience for sin and especially abuse and murder to the innocent amongst them will be sorely judged.

Jeremiah 7:31  "And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart.

7:32  Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be called Tophet, nor the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of slaughter: for they shall bury in Tophet, till there be no place.

7:33  And the carcases of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth; and none shall fray them away.

7:34  Then will I cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride: for the land shall be desolate."

God is saying that He will destroy that nation. He will enact judgment on a people who directly or indirectly causes these sins to continue. He will destroy their posterity and bring them to ruin. Have we not done as these ancient people did? Have not this nation enacted laws against the direct command of a Holy God?

Do you see what the penalty was for not obeying God? Do you see that God hates sin, but He despises the act of killing the innocent, the unborn? He hates idolatry connected to this act of abortion. We have ended the lives of these potential members of God's Family and the human race in the name of free choice and self-concern. The law of the land permits this atrocity! If that is not idolatry, what is? What kind of morality, what religion, permits men to enact such heinous laws? People have become blinded by focusing on their own pleasure, failing to see even that murder is involved, let alone the idolatry of worshiping at our own altar, the human self. Is the above scripture a depiction of the USA in the near future?

Reader, if there is still time and God has not already judged us, then we need to stand up for righteousness. We must stand up for the unborn. We must protect the children, as Jesus emphasized as being the same as receiving Him, as it is receiving the innocent children, in His Name. I encourage everyone who loves God, who loves children, to make a stand for the unborn NOW. Promote any leader, councilmen, or government figure who promises and delivers Pro-life platform. Let us turn away from sin, as a nation, before God rains down judgment about this nations head!

Statistically, in the United States the most dangerous place for anyone to be is in the mother's womb! The unborn baby is a living human being who dies a painful death when aborted. By the seventh week of gestation, the fetus has measurable brain waves (see a legal criterion to determine whether a person is alive or dead) and a beating heart pumping blood to all parts of its little body. God—not the state, not the individual, not the parent—is the Lord of lifeHear the cry of the children and stand up for their life or face the judgment of Almighty God. As sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, God will destroy this nation if this abomination continues. God help us, and the children. 

This is Pastor Mike Taylor, wishes God’s love in your life. If you have any need for prayer, guidance with the Words of God through to Christian living, or just need a friendly ear to listen, drop me a line to,  God bless you, till we meet at Jesus feet.

Pastor Mike, if there is one thing that the last election has shown me, it is that we (bible believing Christians) are in the minority. Many who profess Christ, do not take that profession to the ballot box. They vote with their wallet. There are even some who take a pragmatic approach to abortion, deciding that an unwanted child is better off dead. There is a cancer of apathy in Christendom toward the inerrancy and validity of scripture that can only be described as apostasy. People gather to eat donuts and drink lattes once or twice a month and learn how to feel good about themselves. They flee from the authority of the scripture and the conviction of the Holy Spirit. Modern pastors are all too willing cater to these Christian gluttons who feast on Facebook and the cult of self. Judgement starts in the House of the Lord. I think that part of that judgement involves God removing discernment and wisdom from those who are ashamed of Him and His Word. As much as I would like to see us push back against the demons in the abortion industry, I can't imagine the Joel Osteens and Rick Warrens of the world standing up to lead the charge. They will actually hurt the effort by agreeing with those who are always labeling fundamentalists as kooks and conspiracy theorists. God forbid that one of their latte swilling donors take their coffee cup to another church.

That just leaves us. This is a Bizarro World in which murder is declared holiness, and the men of God remain silent. Come quickly Lord Jesus...

God bless you for defending these poor precious babies. If we are upset to the point of tears on hearing this, imagine how our Father in Heaven must feel knowing all and seeing all. Come soon, Lord Jesus, and rescue all these innocents.

We as believing Christians must take a stand against this evil atrosity. The world we live in is falling deeper and deeper into gross sin and at the same time tries to justify it .We must pray without ceasing for these little ones who are innocent victims . When the wrath of God falls on this nation , it will fall hard !!! I thank God for people like pastor Mike Taylor and his dedication to the Lord Jesus Christ . Amen and Amen !

Dear Brother Mike,Hi, Greetings In The Name Of The Lord Jesus Christ! I can't imagine how far a persons Leprosy has to have progressed to have their morality so desensitized that they would have this done to themselves and destroy their own baby. My ex wife got pregnant and was cheating on me and I knew it wasn't mine, but she didn't know who the father was, I was unsaved but I begged her not to get an abortion. She still got one, and I cried over it. I had a son by my new wife of 17 years that was stillborn at 5 months, a huge hygroma on his throat ruptured and he died in the womb. I have never cried as much as I have over that son of mine. Even now it is hard to go to his graveside, and when I think about him often I start to tear up. I know he is in Heaven but the pain doesn't go away ( and it NEVER SHOULD! ). Sin is such a frequent occurrence in society now that our morality nerve endings are so dulled to it that we are injured and do not feel the pain of its damage. To me I cannot think of a more worse sin than to kill a child before it leaves its mothers womb and think that this is okay. The word fetus I despise, it is just another way to detach ourselves of what it truly is for abortions sake "a Baby"! People even take the Scriptures about God knowing them before they were born to indicate God knew they would eventually become a person, but they are not a person in the womb. It has been 40 years this year of Roe vs. Wade, that 40th year is up Jan. 23rd, 2014. I feel God's wrath will come down and quite possibly on that date to make it known it is Him doing it and how much He hates this thing. The doctors who do this thing are filled with hatred, I got to see an example of one on TV one time. The hatred just flowed from this man, but I pray God will wake these doctors up and get them to repent as well as those who would choose to get an abortion. I cannot imagine being a doctor and doing an abortion, especially a partial birth one without falling to pieces before even starting the procedure. I pray God will Rapture us soon, then all who are pregnant shall suddenly become "UNPREGNANT". I only wished that God would shut up all the wombs during the Trib. I wonder how that will go down for children who die during the Trib and have unsaved parents who will be their caretakers during the Millenium, will it be us Saints or those who enter into the Millenium? Thank You Mike for your articles and God Bless You in writing them may the Lord fill your heart with the words "WE NEED TO HEAR" TTYL, YBIC, Ron R
