9-11 Tribute

This is a photo mosaic done by Loom. It is an ensemble of about 50 pictures of abortion mills and abortionists around the country. This is the real terrorism in the USA – the daily murder of nearly 4000 children. The death toll on that fateful day of September 11, 2001 was about 2800. The nation was outraged. I was in boot camp at the time at Fort Knox – on the M4 Qual range. It was eery as there was a halt on all activity for nearly four hours. All of us ‘Privates’ were wondering what was going on.

Where is the outrage today in our communities. Abortion murder continues on at the permission of the communities these death mills exist in. The churches are silent and not outraged. The politicians are silent and not outraged. The businesses working right beside these mills are silent and not outraged. The nation is pervasive in its injustices – and my people love to have it so. God looks from heaven and sees if there is any that will stand in the gap. His eyes roam to and fro through out all the earth. Nothing is hidden from His sight. You cannot hide your sin. One day you will give an account of all of it, unless you can find a sin bearer, or be your own! Silence is sin as it pertains to abortion in your community.

I am in boot camp everyday. Where are Gods soldiers?

By Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

“Why do the nations rage and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, ‘Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us.’ He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision.” (Psalms 2:1-4).

20120829-092914.jpgFinal Day of the Walk Across America Prophetic Tour in Washington DC

Yesterday, August 28, 2012, commemorated our 8th anniversary of our completion of the Walk Across America Prophetic Tour. Ten missionaries walked a “living parable” from San Clemente, CA to Washington DC. It took over six months to complete this Kingdom task. The “living parable” consisted of a young man, Johnny Benham, who carried broken tablets of the Ten Commandments. He was followed by my daughter, Shekinah Thomas, who carried a baby casket, which represented the preborn children murdered by abortion, the evidence of America’s sin. Shekinah was followed by Rev. Flip Benham, National Director of Operation Rescue/Operation Save America, who walked a white horse adorned with a banner called JUDGMENT. After him, I took up the rear guard by walking a white donkey adorned with a banner called MERCY.

Each day we cried out against the sins of our nation, abortion and parading our sin like Sodom. Each day we called our nation to repent and come back to the Lord and the Biblical principles that served us so well in our nation’s history. We passed out tens of thousands of tracts and did manifold media interviews all along the way.

After delivering God’s mail in Washington DC at the White House, the next day, August 29, 2004, the majority of the missionaries returned home to joyfully reunite with their families. Rev. Flip Benham, however, went to New Orleans to be with Pastor Bill Shanks. Pastor Bill invited Rev. Flip to join him to minister the Gospel of the Kingdom at a sodomite lustfest called Southern Decadence. While there, Pastor Bill Shanks warned New Orleans that if this wicked city did not stop murdering God’s babies and flaunting the abomination of homosexuality, God would send a hurricane and flood New Orleans. On August 29, 2005, one year to the day, Katrina, which means cleansing, devastated New Orleans and the surrounding areas.

Fast forward to this date and what do we discover? Another hurricane is making a similar path towards New Orleans, except this time, the storm’s timing is in conjunction with the Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL. Is there a connection? The rest of this article will explore the possibilities.

First, the name of this imminent hurricane is called Isaac. Biblically, the name Isaac means laughter. As you may recall, when God reaffirmed the promised child to Abraham and Sarah after they were past the time of child-bearing, Sarah laughed. The Lord confronted her with her amused unbelief and in His humorous way called Abraham to name his promised son, Isaac (laughter).

In our opening verse in Psalms two, God’s word addresses nations that rebel against His loving and just rule. As the nations ignore and rage against His commandments, the Lord’s response from heaven is to laugh at them. It is just a coincidence that the very meaning of the hurricane disrupting the Republican National Convention means laughter? If not, perhaps a message I preached a few years ago may apply, “When God laughs in heaven, it is not funny on earth.”

This convention has been marked by storms from without and derision from within. Romney is attempting to change the procedural rules of the convention to disenfrenchise the conservative delegates. It has created a faction that has blown the unity that centered on defeating Obama come November.

As Isaac rains on their parade another storm hit on the way to the convention. It came in the form of a gaff from Congressman Todd Akin. His attempt to address abortion in the case of rape went awry. It served, however, to reveal that once again the Republican Establishment will choose to ignore the American holocaust and the culture of death it has spawned in favor of the economy. They seem to believe that one can continue to slaughter God’s babies made in His image and still thrive as a people. Their mantra of JOBS, JOBS, JOBS, cannot wipe out the cries of the “little ones” and their innocent blood that demands, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until you judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth” (Revelations 6:10)?

Try as they might, politics as usual, whether it comes from Republicans or Democrats, the official party of death, right or left on the political spectrum, cannot save our nation that is drowning in a sea of blood and perversion. There is a spiritual and moral connection to the litany of woe striking our nation. Both political parties ignore it to our national peril. Moreover, any politician that ignores abortion is not fit to serve as a magistrate and betrays the sacred trust of civil government, which is to protect life and stop the shedding of innocent blood. Perhaps Isaac, God’s laughter, is His way of reminding America of this truth in Jesus’ name!

We Could End Abortion ‘Overnight’—If We Really Wanted To.

Sing a Little Louder

Are we truly “pleading the case of the fatherless to win it”?
Jeremiah 5:28

After prominent pro-life leader Penny Lea had spoken one night, an elderly man approached her and gave her his testimony. This is his story:

“I lived in Germany during the Nazi holocaust. I considered myself a Christian.

I attended church since I was a small boy. We had heard the stories of what was happening to the Jews. But like most people today in this country, we tried to distance ourselves from the reality of what was really taking place. What could anyone do to stop it?

A railroad track ran behind our small church, and each Sunday morning we would hear the whistle from a distance and then the clacking of the wheels moving over the track. We became disturbed when on Sunday we noticed cries coming from the train as it passed by. We grimly realized that the train was carrying Jews. They were like cattle in those cars!

Week after week that train whistle would blow. We would dread to hear the sound of those old wheels because we knew that the Jews would begin to cry out to us as they passed our church. It was so terribly disturbing! We could do nothing to help these poor miserable people, yet their screams tormented us. We knew exactly at what time that whistle would blow, and we decided the only way to keep from being so disturbed by the cries was to start singing our hymns. By the time that train came rumbling past the church yard, we were singing at the top of our voices. If some of the screams reached our ears, we’d just sing a little louder until we could hear them no more. Years have passed and no one talks about it much anymore, but I still hear that train whistle in my sleep. I can still hear them crying out for help. God forgive all of us who called ourselves Christians, yet did nothing to intervene.

Now, so many years later, I see it happening all over again in America. God forgive you as Americans, for you have blocked out the screams of millions of your own children. The holocaust is here. The response is the same as it was in my country— SILENCE!”

Baby Malachi

This little baby boy was found frozen in a jar with three other children at an abortion mill in Dallas, Texas, in February 1993. We were stunned when we found him. There were jars upon jars of frozen children in that abortion mill. Rhonda Mackey, our executive secretary at the time, brought this one jar out and asked me what we should do with it. I had no idea, but I instinctively knew we could not leave it there. We brought the jar to Dr. McCarty, a wonderful Ob-Gyn in Dallas, who put the pieces of this baby and the others back together.

The entire process was put on video as Dr. McCarty and all who were present wept at the reconstruction of these precious children. The life that was once there was now gone forever.

It became apparent to all of us that God had given us these children, one in particular, to show to the entire world the horror of abortion. One picture can speak louder than a truckload of words.

We prayed, and asked God to allow this little boy to speak to our nation. We remembered the scripture in Hebrews 11:4: “…he still speaks, even though he is dead.” It was upon a very specific revelation from our Lord that we had the picture of one baby blown up to poster size. Rhonda asked me if she might have the privilege of naming this little baby boy. She prayed, and God gave her the name that this child would become known by all over the world— Malachi!

Malachi means, “My messenger.”

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A PRO-LIFE CHRISTIAN?

by Operation Save America

For years now we have been saying that abortion is preeminently a Gospel issue. It is a physical manifestation of the battle between two seeds—the “seed of the serpent ” versus the “seed of the woman ” Genesis 3:15.

Because this is true, there can be no compromise, no “reaching across the aisle,” no “middle ground” in the abortion battle. Neither side will tolerate the other. When one chooses sides here, he is really choosing between God and the devil—between life and death!

This battle has been raging through the pages of the Bible and the pages of history since the beginning of time. The “seed of the serpent ” is in absolute rebellion against Almighty God and His Law. The “seed of the woman” is in agreement with Almighty God and His Law. Every person on this earth must choose to be on one side or the other, there is no “in between.”

What one perceives the battle to be will determine how he fights it!

Education: If you perceive abortion to be primarily an educational issue, then you will do all that you can to educate people, helping them realize that life begins at conception. The problem is, that many in our nation already know this fact, but they believe a mother’s right to choose trumps a child’s right to live. It isn’t about education!

Politics: If you perceive abortion to be primarily a political issue, then you will spend your time and money attempting to elect Republicans to make abortion illegal once again. However, politics is the art of compromise. To be successful, you must compromise God’s Word to get His work done. This is never a good idea! It isn’t about politics!

Economics: If you perceive abortion to be primarily an economic issue, then you will do all that you can to help those seeking an abortion to find financial help to see their baby to term and beyond. The problem is that most mothers seeking abortion just want to get it over with and get on with their lives. It isn’t about finances!

Compassion: If you perceive abortion to be a compassion issue, then you will do all that you can to set up crisis pregnancy centers so that those seeking abortion instead choose life. The problem is that over 80% of the patients seen in crisis pregnancy centers are not abortion-minded. Those seeking abortions don’t go to crisis pregnancy centers. It isn’t about compassion!

Gospel: If, however, you perceive abortion to be a Gospel issue, then you will call the Church of Jesus Christ into the streets to stand in the gap on behalf of pre-born children. If it is a battle between the “seed of the serpent” and the “seed of the woman,” only the Church of Jesus Christ can crush the head of the serpent. The gates of hell cannot prevail against her! Abortion is preeminently a Gospel issue!

If this is true, we Christians must confess that we have been wrong for the past 30 years in our fight against abortion. We must confess that, though well intentioned, we have failed to love our neighbor as ourself. We must confess that we have lost sight of the spiritual nature of this battle and how it must be won.

We have fought for the lives of children on every venue (educational, political, economic, compassionate, etc.) except this one. We have educated America about the sanctity of life. We have plunged into the political realm, electing Republican and conservative mercenaries to fight our battles for us. We have given financially, over and over again, to help mothers in crisis pregnancies. We have established crisis pregnancy centers. Unfortunately, we have not struck at the root of the problem.

It is only as the praying, proclaiming, praising Church of Jesus Christ allows her theology to become biography at local abortion mills in every city, that the battle may be won!

The “seed of the serpent ” is at war with “the seed of the woman.” This is the battle! Abortion is one of its most horrible physical manifestations. The devil is robbing, killing, and destroying God’s heritage (children, Ps. 127) while we sit by trying to educate, negotiate, buy off, or be compassionate with God’s sworn enemy. We have done everything but fight the devil and his lies with the Word of God.

The only entity ordained by God to crush the head of this serpent is the Church of Jesus Christ. It is time that we lived up to our high calling. Theology must become biography in the streets. The gates of hell cannot prevail. Abortion will come to an end in America when the Church of Jesus Christ makes up her mind it will come to an end—not one second sooner!

Today, two mailers were sent out to the five states that comprise the States of Refuge campaign. One was sent to every State Representative in Arkansas, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. They are receiving a cover letter and a brochure articulating the States of Refuge vision and mission. The other mailer is being sent to 950 churches in the five counties that have the one remaining abortion mill defiling their land. They will receive a copy of the powerful DVD Abortion Matrix, cover letter, and brochure. Please pray that the Lord will use these materials to convince the spiritual and civil leaders to join this righteous effort to cleanse the land of this grave evil in Jesus’ name!
