REPENT AND RESCUE: Proverbs 24:11


You will stand before the Lord Jesus Christ and give an account for what you have and have not done.

Therefore, Christian, what must you do when it comes to the abortion holocaust happening among us?

“Rescue those who are being carried away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter” (Proverbs 24:11).

You and I need to first repent for our participation in or apathy during this holocaust. 65 million+ our of pre-born neighbors have been slaughtered under the Pro-Life laws. In addition to the utter failure of Pro-Life laws when it comes to protecting the pre-born from their parents premeditated choice to murder their child or abortionists knife, few go to murder mills in their communities to plead with these parents not to kill their children.

After repenting, we need to do anything within our power, according to godliness, that will rescue those being carried off to death. Pray. Speak. Act.

Again I say, our marching orders are to “Rescue those who are being carried away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter” (Proverbs 24:11).

This pattern is laid on throughout the entirety of the Scriptures.

“The Hebrew midwives, and Esther in after-ages, thus delivered their own people drawn unto death. Reuben delivered Joseph from the pit. Job was the deliverer of the poor in the extremety, Jonathan saved his friend at imminent risk to himself. Obadiah hid the LORD’s prophets. Ahikam and Ebed-melech saved Jeremiah. Johanan attempted to deliver the unsuspecting Gedaliah. Daniel preserved the wise men of Babylon. The Samaritan rescued his neighbor from death. Paul’s nephew delivered the great Apostle, by informing him of the murderous plot. The rule includes all oppression, which has more or less of the character of murder.” — Charles Bridges. Proverbs (p. 614)

Again, you will stand before the Lord Jesus Christ and give an account for what you have and have not done.

The only way that is going to go well for you is because, if you are in Christ, that means Jesus rescued you who were being carried off to the slaughter! He interposed His precious blood to rescue you from your sin, death, hell, and the wrath of God! Won’t you do that for your pre-born neighbors—sacrifice yourself to rescue them?
