23 (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) To hold a new born babe and to call him or her holy to the Lord. To know this baby has no knowledge of evil or sin in the womb. The baby is the purest form of human life before corruption comes by entering a world of sin. Sin yet not conceived in the young mind of an infant. Yet one of first words a baby learns to retain is the word no no. The concept of no no is do not do what you about to do. The child response is okay, I will wait til your back is turned and I will do it. The other day playing with a little girl, i asked her if she was going to share her cheesy, then I told her do not put in your mouth and then give it to me as she down two weeks before. Well hubby waited and seen her grin and she takes a huge bite of it before giving me the cheesy sharing it with me. The mischief of a child, of innocent behavior. The words this is not right not etched in the young mind. How precious is a new born baby and even those just learning to walk, talk, move about, run and play as normal children do in the innocents of childhood.
The baby the opened a Jewish mother's womb was consider holy to the Lord and sacrifices were to be made for this new born. A ceremony and dedication to the Lord this innocent child to be raised in Jewish traditions and faith. One of the first verses after Adam and Eve are cast out of the garden is that Eve conceived, and bared Cain, and she said she gotten a man from the Lord, never ever seeing him to be a man that would kill his brother Abel. Cain being her first born, and knew God had created this baby, though Adam and her were his biological parents. They understood Adam's own creation came from dust outside of eden and she was made in Eden from Adam's rib. To give birth for the first time after bring sin to humankind.
Psalm 139 says God has possessed my reins and he hast coverd me in my mother's womb. God knows the direction of this child even before he was born he was chosen for the task of being King. He was protected even before birth in the womb of his mother, and covered by his hand. To be covered from sin and things of destruction of the world he was fixing to enter. God is protecting us before birth and in this life as we choose to believe in Him and follow his will. God is protecting the child in the womb. There are times when a child is taken no matter the reason before he or she enters the world. Some mother's cry and wonder about their unborn, if he or she is heaven, and I believe the answer is yes, because he has no ability to know sin. God says he covers us in our mother's womb.
Why speak on this because some mothers have a hard enough time with the loss of their unborn, yet to know God is holding them is perhaps a greater blessing in one way. They never know sin and so their innocent remain. There only knowledge being of heaven and the purity of heaven. For those that loose a child, at some point a child conceives and understands what sin actually is. By age 12 or 13 he or she understand there is coinsequences for disobedience to what degree or even before, the knowledge is understood and conviction of God on the innocent is blessing, for their sin is known God but his love is even greater understood by a child. The Holiness of all babies come with the knowledge of they do not know about sin yet. So has a child grows he learns the word no no, and depending on the no no whether there any extra correction to prevent a baby from hurting him or herself. The understanding something wrong and that it wrong to protect us must come when we can understand that our mistake has consequences. In some cases these things must be taught as they grow into teens, because their no idea or sense of the law, or rules beyond the school house. Parents our children do not stay innocent, they learn they grow and sometimes learn things before we plan for them to learn them.
Pray for our children as they wear mask at school, and in their churches, not fully understanding life and death occur everyday, and to fear this beyond taking percaustions is hazardous to one's health. Pray for the fear of parents that teach their children fear to the point life as they know it is completely halted. Pray for families. WV schools are short of kids, because parents are keeping them home according to the news last night. Do i think precaustion is good, yes, but also forgetting socializing can be bad too. Kids need interaction.
God protection on the world is just that, to keep our lives in check using measure to protect and measure to interact. Check in on your neighbors kids that can, interact with the children when possible to those that know them. They need not to fear but know it as real as walking in the road and becoming road kill. Every child is precious, school doors are open, and teachers can loose jobs because of absents of kids in the school.
Dear Heavenly Father, how precious is the children of the world, from before birth and after birth. How precious to protect our children outside the womb and to teach them right from wrong. Lord help us to love our the kids of the world to give them hope and not the fear of this terrible disease. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
