MORAL  ISSUES
Abortion; LGBTI

Issues for the Church and the Nation, such as Abortion, Gender, etc.  (Under construction)

1. LIFE  or  ABORTION?        'Thou shalt not murder.' (from the Ten Commandments)

The ROOT of the problem.
Genesis 4:8-12 (NIV)  'Now Cain said to his brother Abel, "Let's go out to the field." And while they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him.  Then the LORD said to Cain, "Where is your brother Abel?" "I don't know," he replied. "Am I my brother's keeper?"  The LORD said, "What have you done? Listen! Your brother's blood cries out to me from the ground.  Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand.  When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth." '

The first murder recorded in the Bible was by Cain against his brother Abel. The passage above reveals that the shedding of innocent blood was a grief to God, and that there are consequences to this - a curse.

ABORTION. God has provided a safe place in the mothers' womb for the unborn child to grow and develop before birth. In our day, we human beings are desecrating this sanctuary for the little ones and shedding the blood of these innocent ones. This brings a curse on society.   Read the Psalm below to get God's perspective on the unborn child.
     
Psalm 139v1-17:  (NIV)  [For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.]

O LORD, you have searched me and you know me.  You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.  You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.  Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD.  You hem me in—behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me.  Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. 

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?  If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.  If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,  even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.  If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,"  even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.................. 

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. 
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 
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,  your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!


Quotes:  ‘No moral nation would kill some to heal others.’ (concerning Vaccines).    'Kill the little ones because we are overpopulated.’


We need a Christian ministry in Cyprus which will challenge the government and those in authority regarding the practice of abortion, and which will educate and strengthen the churches over this matter. PRAY for such a ministry to become reality and to be envisioned and enabled by God.  



A PRAYER CONCERNING THE PRACTICE OF ABORTION.

Father, we come before You and cry out for mercy. Have mercy on our nation once again. Forgive us for the innocent lives killed by abortion.

Lord, we need You. Our leaders need You. This nation needs You. Without You, we will go under and lose everything that You had purposed for Cyprus when it was founded.

 

Lord, we pray that the barbaric roots of abortion be exposed for all to see. Shine Your light in the hidden places of darkness and reveal the truth about the abortion and it’s connection to communism. We have many enemies, Lord, and these enemies that are pushing their propaganda are in the European Union and in our own nation. See how they are seeking to destroy our liberty and justice from the inside out. Even now, we know that we are not wrestling against flesh and blood, but principalities and powers that move and inspire mortal men to commit atrocities. (Ephesians 6v10-18 especially v12).

 

You are the Lord God seated above the circle of the earth. We pray “let there be light!” Let blind eyes be opened to the truth of the gospel message. Open their eyes to see Jesus in dreams and visions, open their ears to hear Your word, open their hearts to see abortion for what it truly is. We pray for women to be set free from the deception that abortion is healthcare. Open their eyes to see the truth and be healed. Give them a mother’s heart.

We pray for a great wave of deliverance and healing for women who have been held captive by the lies of the devil for too long, and for healing and forgiveness for those who’ve had abortions. We pray for revelation of truth and salvation to a young generation who has bought into the lies. We pray for deliverance from the abortion industry. Father, we are asking for an Exodus. We are praying for nurses and doctors who practice abortions to be saved and to expose and sound the alarm about what is really going on in those clinics.

 

We pray for the younger generation that is deceived by the rebranding of communism into socialism and wanting this for Cyprus. Lord, open their eyes, so they would see how disastrous that would be. We do not worship the government. We worship You Lord, the Creator, all the power, honor, and glory will only be to Your name. We lift the name of the Messiah Jesus Christ as a banner over our nation. The government rests on His shoulders where He is the Bridegroom, the King, and the Judge.

 

We pour out our hearts to You with prayer and tears, and repentance for the unborn and for the future of Cyprus. Would You reveal Yourself as Lord of the breakthrough? Come and break in. Come and breakthrough. Come and break out! Take what the enemy meant for evil and turn it around for Your good. We will stand in the gap for the next generation and for this nation until we see in our nation [and the nations] as it is in Heaven.

 

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

2. The Issue of LGBTI & Gender
Leviticus 18:22 (NIV Bible):  'Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.'

(Under construction)

We begin by going back to the basics of the Creator's requirements:
Leviticus 18:22 (NIV Bible):  'Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable."


In God's sight, we are created male and female for a relationship of marriage and family. In man's sight, we can do what we like - but there are consequences. The passage below is a warning. Yet, God can restore people as we will see later......... 


Romans 1: 18-32 (NIV Bible): 'The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness,  since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.  For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.  For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.  Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools  and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.  Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.  They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is for ever praised. Amen.  Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.  In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.  Furthermore, since they did not think it worth while to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.  They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips,  slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents;  they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless.  Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practise them'

Restoration.
