Donating and Receiving

Body Parts

By The Holy Spirit's Disciple, Raymond Laginess

THE BIG QUESTION IS. . .

Should a person donate or receive body parts? What does the back of your 'Driver’s License' dictate? If you were in an auto accident, run over by a car, or had died of natural causes, would your organs be removed in order to be donated to a transplant candidate? I want you to keep this in mind, that when you decided to make the donation of your body parts you then made the decision to keep the “sin nature” of the recipient alive. Satan would love to have one of his people in the flesh receive an organ of life in order to keep him alive. What if the recipient lives to sin again, and again, even killing another person - do you think that donating an organ to that person was the Christian thing to do?

IT IS NOT THE CHRISTIAN THING TO DO!

There is no faith in this common practice, and in the past several years, it has truly become common practice and a big issue by the government and the churches of men. There is no biblical history or purpose for such an act of man.

There is now something called “Donor Sabbath” which has only been in existence for 4 years, with November 12-14, 1999 being the 4th year of its existence. Donor Sabbath is a 3-day period each year covering Friday, Saturday, and Sunday which they say “are key worship days for most religions of men”. In some of the “National Donor Sabbath” material, they stated: “By joining forces with the transplant and religious communities, the Division of Transplantation (DoT) hopes to promote the concept of donation through clergy, who are esteemed and credible sources in the community and can help dispel myths about donation and transplantation.” Now, if any so called “religion” believes that it’s a good idea to donate body parts, they are a “religion” of Satan and part of the New Age movement. The National Organ Donor Sabbath also reports that the three days in November “presents a special opportunity to share the greatest blessing of all -- the gift of life.” How very sad!!! Aren’t they confused?

THE GIFT OF LIFE!

The gift of life comes, not by man, but by the power of God ONLY!!! - “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us”. - 2 Cor. 4:7. The Word of God says it all! “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Ph.1:21. AMEN!!!!

In 1998, U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary, Donna E. Shalala [member of Council on Foreign Relations and Trilateral Commission and New World Order follower], announced a partnership with major faith and interfaith organizations and the transplant community to encourage Americans to discuss organ and tissue donation with their families during the annual National Donor Sabbath. The H.H.S. is a world government organization and its members are the agents of hell. And every group associated with H.H.S. are also of hell, they are: the Seventh Day Adventist Church, the InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington, the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA, the National Interfaith Coalition on Aging, the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bah(sr)’Is, the Presbyterian Church (USA), Rabbinical Assembly, the Rabbinical Council of America, all four branches of Judaism (Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist) the Shepherd’s Centers of America and the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, and coming together with them are the Hindu-Jain, Islamic, Jewish, Latter-day Saint, Protestant, Roman Catholic and Sikh faith communities. Other organizations which support National Donor Sabbath are: American Red Cross Tissue Services, the National Kidney Foundation, and several others. All of the above groups are evil if they believe or push such non-faith ideas. Always keep in mind that politics, religion and crime are the allies and brothers of the devil.

Do you know that it is actually the devil who gains through all of this, certainly not the person who receives the transplant, and positively not the persons who donate the organs.....because the donors can not work their way to heaven through the donation of body parts. If there is sickness in a person’s life, or they have been in an accident, and as long as they have faith, they will not die unless the Lord allows it to happen. You must have faith in Jesus Christ whether you live or die, and that faith does not involve your body parts. It is far better to leave this life as we came into it, with the parts given us through our creation by the Lord. “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matt.10:28.

OH, YE OF LITTLE FAITH!

Are ye of a doubtful mind, oh ye, of little faith? Prepare yourself for the next life. Nowhere in Scripture are we told that we should pro-long life, but rather that we should prepare for the next life with Christ. A Christian does not die, but passes to a new life in an immortal body made for heaven, and is with Jesus forever. “So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.” I Cor.15:42-44 and “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” - Rom.8:11. There is no need for body parts to be distributed in this life - it is not of faith, and it is far better to have our mortal bodies quickened by His Spirit that dwells in us.

NO EUTHANASIA - NO MERCY KILLING

There is another point to think about - there is no such thing as mercy killing or euthanasia. Neither of these two subjects require faith. There is no pain in faith. Suicide is also of the devil and it will put you in hell faster than anything. We are all waiting for the redemption of our body, but certainly not through the means of euthanasia, mercy killing, or suicide. “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.” - Romans 8:22,23.

The only real body part you need is a heart where Jesus can live, and it has got to be a right heart, the one which He gave you at birth. Keep it pure and holy for Him, and it will last as long as it is supposed to last, as well as all your other parts - they are yours only, and therefore, they are not to be sold or donated to another living person.

No one will live in this world or leave this world without having had some kind of pain or suffering. But the Lord, through the Holy Spirit, gives us sufficient grace to overcome all things if we have faith, for He has told us - "...My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." - II Cor. 12:9. It is written - “....that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.” - Acts 14:22. Also read Heb.12:7. Remember, our bodies, as created by the Lord, are more than capsules of spare parts to be handed out in order to extend human life. Being ready for death is more important than hanging on to the flesh and sin in satan’s world. Are you ready for death? It is the guilty who will fear, but those in the faith of our Saviour Jesus Christ will have victory!

“For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law” - I Cor. 15:53 - 56.
