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.

Where are God’s soldiers?

“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!

New Video Promoting Emancipation Proclamation for the Preborn Child

written by Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

A team of brave, Christian pro-lifers lead by Mark Gabriel and Pastor Dale Sochia showed up at Virmani’s neighborhood and home to plead with him to repent of his sins and crimes and turn to Jesus for the salvation of his soul. What transpired has gone viral. Pro-life, Christian, and secular news outlets and blogs have reported on this incidence and are showing the video. The following is just a sample of the many articles that have been written. May the Lord continue to use this video to expose the hidden works of darkness and set the captive free in Jesus’ name!

Shocking: Abortionist Tells Pro-Life Group ‘Let Me See You Adopt One of Those Ugly Black Babies’

A horrifying video released by Operation Save America (OSA) sheds light on one abortionist’s views of his profession, and contrary to what many pro-choice activists would have you believe, the man does not seem to be in it to help "family planning."

(Related: Ethicists Argue in Favor of ‘After-Birth Abortions’ as Newborns ‘Are Not Persons’)

Confronted by a group of pro-life activists, North Carolina abortionist Ron Virmani launched into a rant about not burdening the taxpayers.

At first, one would think he is referring to burdening the taxpayers with the cost of the abortion, but it soon becomes clear he sees the children themselves as the burden.

"I as a taxpayer do not wish for those babies to be born, and brought up, and kill those people in Colorado," he says.

When the activists wearing "Jesus" shirts insist they still want the babies to be born, the man responds: "Let me see you adopt one of those ugly black babies."

Watch the horrifying .

OSA’s website notes that the doctor seemingly felt he was solving several of society’s "problems" in his line of work. They write:

"His solution to crime in America, is to kill babies. His solution to welfare in America, is to kill babies. His solution to rising taxes in America, is to kill babies. His solution to stanch the flow of bitterness that fills his heart, is to kill babies. Murder is his answer to everything."

Furthermore, they note, Virmani repeatedly refers to the unborn as "babies," not "blobs of tissue" or "fetuses," invalidating the left’s argument that abortion is not murder.

LifeNews adds that Virmani is hardly the first "pro-choice" activist with a perverse infatuation for eugenics. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, publicly stated in 1920: "birth control is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit [and] of preventing the birth of defectives."

Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union, responded: "Excuse me? It’s all too obvious that he has a particular disgust for black babies and therefore has no problems killing them."

Gardner continued: "The black community should be outraged because Ashutosh Virmani is a brazen racist and his statement supports what we already know of the billion dollar abortion industry-black babies are targeted because they are seen as poor, worthless and maybe even ‘ugly.’"

Blessings to you all,

Well the devil is reeling from truth exposing him. As of going into yesterday we had a total of 1,600 hit on youtube in regards to abortionist Ron Virmani. But as of this morning that number has jumped to nearly 80,000. Not only this, it has been picked up by countless news and blogs such as, www.Lifenews.com www.TheBlaze.com www.LifeSiteNews.com anyway it is catching fire.

The devil overplayed his hand, he thought he could win with a "Flush" (poker hand), but little did he know there is one called "The Royal Flush" and His name is Jesus! This man only has spoken what most abortionist really think going all the way back to Margret Sanger founder of Planned Parenthood. Upon googling his name there are several pages of different sites that have picked this story up and have embedded the video. May the Lord expose the true ugliness of abortion, Americas Holocaust.

FATHER’S DAY MESSAGE

Posted: June 16, 2012 in abortion

By Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

Lou Whitworth stated, "Were one of these two bents given full rein, the balance required for authentic Christian manhood would be lost. Strength and power, without tenderness, for example, give us the brute. Tenderness and compassion without masculine firmness and aggressiveness produce a male without the fire to lead or inspire others." With this statement the challenge for true biblical fatherhood commences.
People in public places occasionally comment on how "good" our children are and how blessed we must be as parents. Yes, we are blessed. However, our blessing is not found in the inherent "goodness" of our children. It is found in Christ, His Word, and in the high calling of Biblical parenting. It is in fulfilling the dominion mandate as articulated in Genesis 1:28, Malachi 2:15, and the Great Commission, Matthew 28:18-20. It is discovered in seeking to conform our lives, marriage, and family in accordance to God’s will.
Our children are not perfect, but prized. They are prized because God has said they are His (Ezekiel 16:21) and they are His reward (Psalm 127:3) granted to faithful parents. Yet, we did not receive "good" children at birth. We received sweet, adorable sinners with the same feet of clay that we as parents possess. Every day we must contend with their bent towards foolish, sinful behavior, our limited energy, and our own short comings. But deal with it, we must, if we are to train up children to glorify God and fulfill their God-ordained destiny, which benefits them and others (Proverbs 22:6).
Character training is the most important and most difficult aspect of parenting. In fact, it is the primary purpose of education. Noah Webster, considered the Father of American Education, defined the term education in these terms, "The bringing up, as of a child, instruction; formation of manners. Education comprehends all that series of instruction and discipline, which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations." In other words, parents need to inculcate in their children the necessary biblical attributes to forge a godly character that prepares them for their future.
Any good fruit in children’s lives is the result of the Holy Spirit’s sanctification and the parents, especially the father’s, faithfulness to the Word of God. Dads must not only be able to teach the precepts of God’s Word, but model its message faithfully before their families, friends, and foes. To mistakenly believe children are naturally well behaved is to ignore the power of the Word in the lives of even the youngest of sinners and to disregard the lofty position of a father in God’s Kingdom.
This lofty position in God’s Kingdom carries with it a great weight of responsibility. According to Moses, who received the Ten Words, "For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments" (Exodus 20:5, 6). It is not the sins of the mother, the church, the state, or the culture that places our children’s future in jeopardy; it is the sins of the patriarchs.
In light of these truths, what fathers say or do not say, what they do or do not do, carries a profound impact upon their children’s souls, lives and future. We fail to recognize this important human relationship to our nation’s peril. For as goes the father, so goes the family and as goes the family, so goes the church, and as goes the church, so goes the nation.
It is the father who will stand before God to give an account for his family. It is the father who must protect his family from the fallen world, the deceitfulness of sin, and the enemies of God while advancing His Kingdom through a multi-generational vision. It is the father that must stand as guardian at the gate of his home to determine what comes in and what is kept out of his family.
Does evil flourish under his watch that devours his children? Does he neglect the spiritual training and moral welfare of his children? Does he train them in the goodness, holiness, and righteousness of God? If not, why not? All the money, perks, and materialism in this poor-fallen world cannot make up for the failure of not being the loving, yet firm watchmen upon the wall of one’s home. Obviously, this holy endeavor is not for the weak or faint of heart. This is why true Biblical fatherhood is a rare and precious thing. To overlook or ignore it is to devalue it.
William Wordsworth once wrote, "The flower that smells the sweetest is shy and lowly." How does the flower become lowly? It is the Father’s hand from heaven that presses down upon our petals. In the same way, a father must form his children’s character by pressing down on their tendency to grow into something corruptible, something other than a poet, chivalrous warrior, statesman in boys and a meek and quiet spirit in girls that is highly prized by God in heaven.
When the discipline and nurturing of children is done correctly, there is little trace of the father’s hand. Yet, it is the father, who is to work the soil of his children’s heart. Solomon speaking as a kingly father preparing to pass the righteous scepter of a godly reign to his children stated, "My son, give me your heart, And let your eyes observe my ways" (Proverbs 23:6). The heart of each child finds its safest rest in the ways of a godly father.
The ways of the father plow the hardened ground and carefully sows the Word of God. The father pours out the living water, drenching the roots of his children with the Holy Spirit. It is the father, who must tirelessly weed out the evil that surround his children’s frail stalks. It is the father, who constructs a trellis of truth, to which his children can secure themselves and go further up and in to God’s Kingdom.
Finally, it is the father, who carefully builds a hedge around his children, providing the safety of an enclosed garden in which to grow. It is a consecration unto impact and not isolation a father seeks to instill in his budding plants. A spiritual covering arches over their development. It allows the Son to shine, a gentle rain to fall, and when the storm hits, the wise father provides the solid rock of faith that applies God’s word to secure their lives.
Some might accuse such a father of "keeping his children from the socialization of the world," as though his children were wild plants, not exquisite ones requiring constant love and pruning. Yet he is not keeping his children from the world; he is dressing and keeping them to change the world. As they grow and mature in the security of their father’s love, they will bring the fragrance of Christ to all who meet them. To those who are perishing in their sins, it will be a fragance of death. To those who are saved, it will be the wonderful aroma of life (2 Corinthians 2:16).
Remember, those who will finally pluck these children from their father’s garden, their godly characters are no accident of nature. They are a father’s labor of love offered to the Lord. He endured their worse to give you their best. They grew to be a gift to the Maker of the "shy and lowly" flower. They may not have become the fragrance of Christ without God using a father’s cultivation, which combined tenderness and discipline in their training.
Happy Father’s Day to every man who has attempted to be such a father in an age that dishonors true, biblical fatherhood in Jesus’ holy and precious name!

Just got this today…

For some context to this attachment: Pastor Mark Holick wrote this after spending a week ministering on the streets in Wyoming early May. They were there last year and were cited by local police and eventually won the case. This second time was under much duress and trouble from locals of every kind; church groups, pro-murder groups, federal folks etc. you name it. Just want to keep you aware of what is happening in this nation and to remind you that come September, States of Refuge will hold their regional event here in Little Rock. Will you join us NOW, on the streets, crying out against the injustice of babies arms and legs being ripped apart daily in our own State by abortion on demand by the poor man Mr. Tvedten at 4 Office Park Drive?

We will be out this Saturday, prolly starting at 0630 praying at the cross. O, dear saints, let’s cry aloud and spare not while we still have breath in our lungs…

A woman’s hardest lot!

(Timothy Shay Arthur, “Lovers and Husbands. A Story of Married Life” 1847)

No man is able fully to meet and reciprocate a true woman’s love. The best of men, with all their willingness, with all their efforts, fail. There are deep places of her heart unreached–aching voids unfilled. And yet it is astonishing how small a return will seem to satisfy a woman, and make her heart glow with sunlight. A pleasant word, a tender look, a kiss of love–ah! these seem but small returns for the deep tenderness that ever burns in her bosom! And yet, alas! too often even these are withheld–and the selfish, reserved, cold, and at times morose “lord of creation,” comes in and goes out daily–never dreaming that by this very coldness, reserve, and moroseness–he is breaking the heart of her who loves him better than her own life!

But it is ever so. Hundreds, thousands, yes, tens of thousands of wives, are performing their round of duties hourly and daily–unblessed by smiles that warm the bosom, or words that make the heart tremble with inner joy; while, all unconscious of their cruel indifference–those who provide fine houses, fine furniture, and fine garments for their victims, proudly imagine that they are the best of husbands!

Maiden–innocent, loving maiden!–do not turn away from this picture now, or else the time may come when you will seek to turn from it, and shall not be able. When one comes asking your love–know well if he is worthy of such love as you can give. Do not look alone at his attractive exterior; seek to know what ends actuate him. It is the loveliness of pure, high principles that remains verdant the longest–yes, forever verdant. These, and these alone, can make you permanently happy. Without them, an angel’s grace, an angel’s form would lose its attractions; with them, the plainest exterior soon grows beautiful to the eye of a loving wife. Lay this up in your heart; think of it in the morning, and when your head presses your pillow at night. It may save you from a woman’s hardest lot–that of being bound for life to a man who does not even try to make her happy!

Quick update for Operation Save Arkansas:

Last weekend was a busy and profitable time with saints around the nation as we converged on the last remaining death camp in Arkansas.
Rusty Lee Thomas, with Operation Save America and States of Refuge, brought the Thomas nation (family) down to Arkansas. Pastor Mark Kiser of Missouri also brought his son, his son-in-law, Travis and others. Chet Gallagher, from Las Vegas, was in the lead of the weekend event and we were even joined by the Yoder family from Missouri. We also had Greg Thompson from Asleep kNOw more ministries. Along with a few from Arkansas we waged war on the hosts of darkness by unsheathing the sword of the Spirit and read the entire bible at the gates of hell.

For one, It was an honor to serve with these men: men such as Rusty, who has been arrested and jailed over 40 times for his service to our King! Rusty Lee also brought his mother-in-law, Elaine, who has been involved in Pro-Life work, including rescuing, since the passage of Roe v. Wade, and who was a pioneer in the homeschooling movement. And men such as, Chet Gallagher who has been arrested over 100 times standing in the gap for those being led to the slaughter. His first arrest was in uniform as a police officer!

We spent all weekend reading the entire Bible outside of the abortion mill starting on 7:30 Friday morning, and ending Sunday afternoon. Rusty Lee delivered a stirring message to the saints on Sunday, as we held church outside the gates of Hell.

Being around some of these modern day "heroes of the faith" reminds me of what we read in Hebrews 11. Hebrews 11:25-27 states, "choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward…for he endured as seeing Him who is invisible." Hebrews 11:35-38 goes on to state, "Some were tortured, refusing to accept release, so that they might rise again to a better life. Others suffered mocking and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were killed with the sword. They went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, afflicted, mistreated–of whom the world was not worthy–wandering about in deserts and mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth." The writer of Hebrews then goes on to say, in light of all of this, "Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured from sinners such hostility against Himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted" (Heb. 12:1-3).

This is the prophetic declaration from Chet Gallagher of Operation Save America who spoke this on top of the man hole cover directly outside the death camp/abortion mill last weekend.

Additionally, these two links are a clear and timely teaching by Bishop Robert Smith from Word of Outreach in Little Rock, AR concerning Sodomy and homosexuality. Timely due to the fact our President has just issued his position on it. Brother Thom Huey, a local empassioned saint to end abortion, has sent these links out and I want to include them here for your consumption, if you wish. The Awakening and Part 2.

See you on the streets – the Saints owe it to the World!

Our godless society!

Posted: May 3, 2012 in Uncategorized

By Theodore Cuyler, “Wayside Springs from the Fountain of Life” 1883

“Do not be conformed to the world.” Romans 12:2

The sin of modern civilization has been well described as “making more of status than it does of character.” But the very essence of Bible religion, is to make character everything–and conduct the test and evidence of character.

Our godless society needs a strict, pure, honest, self-denying, godly-minded church! Conformity to the world–will never convert the world! We are not to accommodate Christianity to the thought and fashion of the times–but to keep it stoutly and steadily up to its original standards. We must stand fast, not only to the faith once delivered to the saints, but to the practices which are enjoined in God’s Word.

Social life, with increase of wealth, has a trend towards demoralization. Luxury weakens morality. Popular amusements become sensualized and offer their temptations to the church. “Do not be conformed to the world” applies to the theater, the ball-room, the wine-cup, and to everything that would turn God’s earth into a “Vanity Fair.” Conformity to the world amounts, in the end, to more than the corruption of Christ’s church. It puts out the light which Christ has kindled; it destroys the very leaven which He has prepared to purify and sweeten and save a “world lying in wickedness.”

– til He comes

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said:’Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.’

So the doctor said: ‘Ok and what do you want me to do?’

She said: ‘I want you to end my pregnancy, and I’m counting on your help with this.’

The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: ‘I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you too.’

She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: ‘You see, in order for you not to have to take care of 2 babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.’

The lady was horrified and said: ‘No doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!’

‘I agree’, the doctor replied. ‘But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.’

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.

He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that’s already been born and one that’s still in the womb. The crime is the same!

Love says, ‘I sacrifice myself for the good of the other person.’ Abortion says, ‘I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself.’

Joy in Him!
