As Christians we believe that life begins when the seed of a man mingles with the seed of a woman and new life begins. Some folks who are for greedy lucre do not accept a new life until it exists out of the womb. Life begins at conception but man cannot create a spirit!
Hebrews 12:9 Shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits and live?
When God puts a spirit into that forming life it's little heart will start beating, henceforth a baby has begun it's development. In about nine months a beautiful little miracle will be born into the world. The couple are the parents of the flesh and God is the Father of the spirit that started the heart beating. Some folks simply refuse to believe God has any part in this baby's development or birth. This brings me to another subject concerning God's divine place in life. Why would God create a world, put His children on it and then let them all perish from global warming? Some people accept things as they want them, you can't give them enough evidence to prove them wrong. That was the case with the Jews, Jesus proved He was the Messiah and they would not accept the truth.
Jeremiah 1:15 I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb.
Heaven is full of spirits waiting to be placed in the body, the Father knew them before they were put in the body. It is the Father's will to begin in Heaven and end in Heaven. The world is an evil place because Adam let the devil into his world. God would not put man in such an evil place but that He first gave man the power over all the works of the enemy. The average man has no concept of a devil and how he is influenced by him. The world tells man that the devil is powerful and there is nothing you can do about. Who teaches man these lies? The god of this world! It's pretty silly when you think about it, the devil teaches the world that he is an entity that must be feared. The one who created the devil gives man a totally different account of the devil and his lies.
Ephesians 2:10 We are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the things He planned for us long ago.
Every human being has an inward desire to contact the Father of their spirit, but many don't know who their Father is so they choose another father. All men inherently want to follow in their father's footsteps but they don't know who their father is. So the devil introduces himself as our father and we don't know any better so by nature we follow him. We will act like the father we know even if he is illegitimate. The devil has always wanted to take God's place as Lord. The devil operates on the basis of lies and deception. God operates on the basis of love and truth. The devil thinks he will love having company in hell, victory to him is taking people away from the Father of Lights.
I believe every man will know the difference between the two fathers. When a man is a child of wrath he knows he is doing wrong but he does not know any better way. When a man finds his true Father he enters a peace he has never known and then he realizes he was deceived. No man can be who he was born to be without knowing his Father. We are who we are by nature whether it be God's or the devil's. I now know I am doing what I was born to do and I have no regrets or questions. They say the two most important things in life are being born and knowing why. I am living in God's perfect will and I will die in His will. Then I will see Him forever and be rewarded.
