Life


   There is an old caring farmer live far away from the city, he has a big farm and there are many different vegetables and animals such as chickens, ducks, pigs, cows… One day, someones go to visit him and he is very happy about that. He cleans up the house, makes some beautiful decorations, preparing many delicious foods for them…


   When these people arrived, he is very happy and lets them sit in front of a beautiful, big table that has well prepared with many delicious foods on it and lets them to enjoy.


   They are so hungry and eat quickly, and then showing rude and greedy. Someone’s left hand taking two chicken drumsticks putting into the mouth, at the same time the right hand trying to grab the pork ribs, steaks as many as he could. Someone just has a bite of the food and then throws away.


Someone cursing the food while he is eating. Someone eats the food he doesn’t like, throws and steps it on the ground. After they are full, they start to play the food. They throw the food to each other. One of them steps on it and slips accidentally. He is very angry, keep trampling and cursing the food.


   You may say “Wow wow wow, it’s very terrible! How could they being like this? Why didn’t they express thankful and gratitude?”. If you are the farmer, what is your feeling? How do you feel? Angry? Yes, but the farmer not just angry only. As these people, the food on table is just the “FOOD”, but for the old caring farmer, it is not only the “FOOD”. All of these are life and his loved, need to be respected, thankful and gratitude even they are “FOOD”.


   Everyday morning, chicken “Mary”, “Rose”, “Sam” … call him to wake up for a new day and give him eggs for breakfast. Cow “Paul” is very helpful for farming and transportation. Sheep “Losi” and pig “piggy” are his lovely friends and they just give birth cute baby a few months ago… He loves them and knows their names all. For him, all of them are not the food only, although they are just animals. 


   But why he gives them to these people? because he loves these people so much…


   Our Heavenly Father is like this caring farmer, He loves human so much, He gives us every grace and good things. One of these grace is the “Sexual relationship”, it’s like a good tasty food, but it is the “another kind” of food figuratively. Truly, sexual relationship is same as the delicious food let us feel enjoy and happy, but it’s much more than that. Just want to ask a question, have you ever asked your parent when you were child, “How did I come?”.


In fact, you were born by your father(man) and mother(woman) through the sexual relationship. This is called fertilization in biology, the combination of the sperm and egg. Do you know anyone else who was not come from this fertilization? I know three only, Adam, Eve and Jesus. So all of us were come from this “fertilization” procedural, including you and me… and everyone.


   So what does it mean? Now, do you know why God forbids sexual immorality? Because God loves all of us including those are not yet born or not yet come(not exist). Just like you are not exist before, but now you are really existing just same as all people. Can you imagine in this world, many children are crying to God?


They are crying, “God, Why did my parent give birth to me and bring me into this world, but they don’t care and love me?”, “God, why I am not as same as other children have a warmed, loved family?”, “God, why I don’t have enough food and always get hungry?”, “God, why my parent abuse me?” , “God, why I am not happy, why I can’t like other children are happiness?”, “God…. God…” I don’t want to mention anymore the miserable experiences of these children.


   When Abel was killed, Genesis 4:10 God says “And the YHWH said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground. ” God heard the crying voice from Abel even he was killed and not existed right now. Same as Abel, Jehovah God concerns our life, our generation’s life, even though they are not yet exist (but will be exist, born). God is Love and He knows what is good, what is evil, even things hidden that we can’t see.


   When we read the Bible Numbers 11:4-6 says ‘Now the rabble that was among them had a strong craving. And the people of Israel also wept again and said, “Oh that we had meat to eat! We remember the fish we ate in Egypt that cost nothing, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic. But now our strength is dried up, and there is nothing at all but this manna to look at.”’.


And Numbers 11:31-34 says ‘Then a wind from the YHWH God  sprang up, and it brought quail from the sea and let them fall beside the camp, about a day’s journey on this side and a day’s journey on the other side, around the camp, and about two cubits above the ground. 32 And the people rose all that day and all night and all the next day, and gathered the quail. Those who gathered least gathered ten homers. And they spread them out for themselves all around the camp. 33 While the meat was yet between their teeth, before it was consumed, the anger of the YHWH God was kindled against the people, and the YHWH God struck down the people with a very great plague. 34 Therefore the name of that place was called Kibroth-hattaavah, because there they buried the people who had the craving.’


Because of their craving and greedy, they gathered at least ten homers(about 2200 Liters equal to 1100 2L drinks), do they need to eat that so much? No, it’s way more than they need, and what would happen to the quail they couldn’t eat? You can imagine, they throw it away as rubbish. Jehovah God angered to them not because they requested meat, but because they were not respect the life and with strong craving and greedy attitude.


   God loves all of us, He wants all of us to have a warm and love family, caring parents, happiness life… He concern and cares about our feeling seriously. What is really good for us, bring us happiness, he takes very seriously about that. Life is holy and sacrosanct, that means we need to respect the life, and the life is inviolable especially human.


So every country have laws to protect their people’s life, no one wants to be hurt, but wants to be respected. Life is holy means you are being respected and protected, just same as everyone. We are created with a unique DNA and unique fingerprint, it shows us God cares everyone as a unique and individually person. He takes seriously about you, me and all.


You are holy because you are life, life is holy because it comes from the Holy God, and everyone expect to be respected of their life. God loves all of us, so He sets a Law in Deuteronomy 5:18 says “You shall not commit adultery.”


And Acts 15:28,29 says “For it has seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay on you no greater burden than these requirements: 29 that you abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols, and from BLOOD, and from what has been strangled, and from “SEXUAL IMMORALITY”. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell”. BLOOD and SEXUAL IMMORALITY is directly related to “life”, so God commands us to respect life, that means we should forbid “sexual immorality”.


   He wants us to take seriously about sexual relationship, this represents life, represents you and me personally(not only black but also all color’s people). Some people say “I am over 18 years old, I am a adult now, I can do these things casually.” Or say lightly after the sexual relationship with someone “I am adult, it doesn’t matter, I don’t care.”


If someone has this attitude, is that represents he/she does not respect life? Is that represents they are not respecting his/her son’s life, or daughter(life), or parents(life), or grandparents(life), or friends(life)…or even himself(life)? Because all of us could be exist, was through the “sexual relationship”.


Adults are physical mature enough to have sexual relationship, does it mean he/she can has a flippant attitude? Just like a scientist has the knowledge and skills to make nuclear energy and atomic bomb, just because he is a adult so he can play the nuclear with a flippant attitude? Absolutely and Definitely “NOT!” you would say.


   During the World War II 6,9 Aug.1945, there was the first time used atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. There were 129000 to 246000 people died in this Atomic bombings. After that, the world’s people are particularly afraid and scared about the atomic bomb because it killed many many people. So there is a commemorative event for the atomic bomb every year in Japan to remind the world of the scourge of atomic bomb, hoping it won’t happened again.


People can see the atomic bomb disaster, but compare with the “sexual immorality” which one killed people more? Can people also see that? The answer is like the comparison of an ant(atomic bomb) and the elephant(sexual immorality). So, about the sexual relationship, do you agree that we should take much much more seriously attitude? Yes, absolutely. Amen.


   If someone says he is adult, then he should has mature mind and knows it couldn’t play. For adult who has mature mind, more knowledge and ability, he needs to take more seriously and responsibility attitude about the sexual relationship, right? Yes, they should know that it belong to love and responsibility to our child(life), they are lives, and need to respect. They will cry to God and also cry to you.


Truly, the “sexual relationship” is the grace from God, but He takes very serious, He commands us need to take serious too. If we have this attitude, it represents we respect life, we respecting ourselves, our child, parents, friends… and specially our God(he is the fountain of life), Psalm 36:9 says “For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light.”.


On the issue of abortion, if someone says : “I have the right to an abortion because the body is my body and it is up to me to decide”. If someone thinks like this and doing this way, is that represents she agrees her mother can treat her the same way? Matthew 7:2 Jesus said, “For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.”. God will treat(measure) you, as you treat(measure) others the same way when he judge. Do you want God respect and take seriously of you? Yes. Amen.


   Let’s Prayer.


   Jehovah God our Heavenly Father, you give every good things and grace gifts to us. You love all of us, even the uncountable people who are not yet born, are also loved and cared by you. You see them just like they are already exist, and yes surely they will exist. You respect us and love us. May we imitate you, our Heavenly Father to love and respect all people.


Truly, we agree the sexual relationship is like tasty food, it makes us really love it, but please Heavenly Father please help us to respect and take serious attitude of it, and guide us to abstain sexual immorality and the immorality mind. Please Father, we are afraid that we will fall in temptation. So please lead us not into temptation, but also deliver us from evil. And please allow us to learn from Jesus.


When we encounter temptations or when evil appear in our mind from Satan, we would say “Get behind me and get away, Satan!”, and then close the evil window of our mind. Please forgive us by Jesus’s ransom. Amen. May we all give the glory, the praise, and the gratitude to the fountain of life, the heavenly Father Jehovah God, and also to your beloved son Jesus Christ forever and ever. Amen.


Prayer is also in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
