I feel unqualified and humbled to write this. But I have a friend who lost her child to miscarriage, and she once asked God, “Where is my baby?”, and it was by the sharing of what I saw in Heaven that her family and friends were able to be comforted after their loss.
A lot of people, like my friend, do not know what happens to their baby after he or she died (in or out of the womb). In recent times, our country has carried on the ungodly act of abortion and held heated debates on whether or not the life of a child inside the womb should be considered a human being at certain stages of gestation. Such heartless acts and movements have intimated many mothers who’ve experienced loss to believe that the lives of their little ones never mattered… and certainly not if they died early on.
Do these babies matter? Maybe not to this dark world. But to God, I can assure you, they do.
The Baby is in Heaven
When I was sixteen, I was in prayer when suddenly, I was taken by the Spirit into Heaven and shown the following:
In the Spirit, I found myself standing amongst a white-clothed multitude, and we were in the presence of God the Father, even where He sits upon His throne. I was on the right side of the room, close to the aisle where I had seen people walk to meet the Father and His Son. I could hear many voices and all were full of joy, for someone had just come to live in God’s Kingdom. All that were gathered here were awaiting his or her coming. Then I saw those who stood on the other side of the room, on the opposite side of the aisle, and they were dressed in royal apparel, wearing fine garments of many colors. There wore crowns and caps upon their heads. Suddenly, there was a great silence and then I looked to the left of me and saw the two large doors to the throne room opening, and then slowly an angel entered into them, and he cradled a baby in his arms.
The baby was a girl, and she was wrapped in a pink and gold cloth. The angel stared down at the baby and smiled, as he walked down the aisle. I knew then how much the angels of God love holding the babies and bringing them back to the Father. The Spirit spoke to me and told me that the baby was growing; whether she grew in size or in knowledge, I don’t know, but I knew that the baby was aware of where she was and also whom she was going to meet. She sat up in the angel’s arms and turned her head to see where the Father was. She put her hands out and reached for Him, for she knew that He was her Maker. I could see how much she longed for Him; she was panting anxiously to be with Him.
Then I turned and saw the Father. He sat on His throne, and He was smiling. He was very pleased at her anxiousness to be with Him, and then He leaned forward on His throne, His eyes looking on His creation, and He too longed to be with her. He loved her and His heart cried out to her. He stared at her and no one else. He extended His hands towards her, and I saw that the angel had but a short space to walk before he gave her to the Father, but the baby was desperate and could not wait, and her spirit leapt within her as she extended herself out to the Father so much that I thought, if it were possible, she might fall out of the angel’s arms. But then the Father took her, and He brought her to His bosom. I saw her little hands cleave to Him, and then she rested, finally content in His arms. He still stared down at her, and then His mouth opened and He said, “My daughter, My daughter… you have come home!”
The Apostle Paul wrote to the Thessalonians,
Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him…According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 NIV
After she had prayed, the Lord had told my friend, “[Your baby is] with me.” And just like He told her, I tell you that all these little ones are with Him in His kingdom. The life of these children matter to God just as much as you and me. He takes them… He takes all the millions of babies who were aborted, miscarried, and stillborn to be with Him. They dwell with Him. They are alive with Him. And we will see them all one day.
May we all be comforted with this.
