Will there be aborted babies in the Millennium, and will we be taking care of them and teaching them Torah?
This is a GREAT question and I ask that you please bear with me as I explain my reasoning on this whole issue – some of which is going to sound VERY weird to you all….
Okay, so we are told there will be a "catching up" of believers only upon Yeshua's Second Coming - NOT of the unbelievers who will only be called up before God on Judgment Day at the end of the Millennium. “The dead in Messiah shall rise first, and then we who are alive….” (1 Corinthians 6:14; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17)
This initial “catching up” will include aborted babies – because they were MURDERED INNOCENTS who never committed any sins. BUT here’s the thing: THEY WON’T BE BABIES anymore, because - just like the rest of us who will be caught up right afterward, they'll get their "new bodies"... And Scripture tells us that our new bodies are “incorruptible”. Take a look:
1 Corinthians 15: 51. Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, 52. Suddenly, as in the twinkling of an eye, at the last shofar, when it will sound; and the dead will arise, without corruption; and we will be changed. 53. For this which is corruptible, is to put on incorruption; and that which dies, will put on immortality. (AENT)
Those bodies will have NO NEED to be born tiny and grow into adults. They will be fully formed, glowing, shining brightly (like Moshe was after being in YHWH’s Presence for 40 days (Exodus 34:29-35).
(For more on the “glowing/shining”, please see our blog article: “What were the ‘garments of skin’ with which YHWH covered Adam and Eve after they sinned?” This is IMPORTANT!!!)
Pre-born, stillborn and aborted babies are completely innocent. They hadn’t had the chance to sin – and Scripture plainly teaches that sin is not inherited. “[The] son shall not bear the iniquity of the father” (Ezekiel 18:20); every person is responsible for his own conduct (Romans 14:12).
Ecclesiastes 12:7.Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
(Dust, representing the corruptible body, even the body of the unborn baby, returns to the earth but the God-given spirit returns to God. The unborn baby was human life and its spirit surely returns to Him!)
Isaiah tells us that a child must reach a certain level of maturity before he is able to choose between evil and good (Isaiah 7:15, 16). We’re also told the human spirit is not inherited from one’s parents; rather, it is given by God (Ecclesiastes 12:7; Hebrews 12:9). Hence, at birth it must be as pure as the source from whence it comes….
So, because aborted babies won't be babies, and will likely be fully formed upon their return to earth (as we will be after the Marriage Supper of the Lamb – Revelation 19), perfect, sinless, godly beings, they won't have to be TAUGHT a thing, because YHWH will surely have given them and their “forever bodies” all of the knowledge they will ever need - no different from what those of us who born can expect.
While we, with our limited human mindsets view as horrible the idea of a tiny baby dying, those aborted babies didn't have to go through a through life with all its difficulties here on earth to learn all the things WE have had to WORK to learn over the course of an entire lifetime...
