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?

You mentioned in one of your initial posts that you were thankful for certain messages because they helped "keep my mind off things." What things?

If you were, in fact, FULLY convinced that what you are planning to do today is of no consequence (possibly already have done), what on earth would you need to keep your mind off of?

Yes, clearly I am of the "anti-choice" group as you would label me; yet, with all of the post-abortive women I have spoken to, the ironic thing is they all have said at the time they had their abortion, they felt like they ‘had no choice.’ You may not be able to relate to that and maybe are under absolutely no duress.

If so, then I can only appeal to you as a daughter of a father who was conceived as a product of incest (she was only 13)… My father was given life and adopted as a newborn. I can only appeal as a mother of 3 amazing sons, one of whom is adopted (I often forget which one unless giving our testimony) and he is amazing and I could not imagine my life with out him! Each of us, my father, myself, my son all are alive and fulfilling our purpose on earth because a birth mom was sacrificial enough to think of the unborn person in her womb over herself. For the vast majority (99%) of unwanted pregnancies, the pregnancy itself occurred because 2 consenting people made a choice to have sex with known possible consequences of pregnancy. I urge you to reconsider.

You have heard the Biblical truth about murder, slaying of innocent blood, etc. all of which God is NOT guilty of as so many on your FB page claim. IF God exists and He is perfectly holy; he made rules, people broke them, He provided MULTIPLE warnings about what would happen if they refused to repent, turn from their sin and obey BEFORE He ever enacted any wrathfully judgment. Does that make Him mean? I don’t think so. It makes Him just and a Man of His Word. It’s just that the consequences truly were/are life and death for God’s children. (Unlike my children where the consequence for disobeying is losing a toy or getting a time out, etc…. However, if I warn my child ahead of time about a particular consequence and he goes ahead and makes the choice to disobey, I am not unfair or mean if I go ahead and give the consequence).

You have heard the truth of science. I studied Biomedical Science, Molecular Biology and Neurodevelopment throughout my education (PhD) and the truth is, life begins at conception. In fact, the baby in your womb has been growing all by itself and will continue to do so until around 6-weeks, when the umbilical cord finally attaches to mom’s placenta! By that time (day 21-24) the heart has already started beating….. All by itself. Just because a 4-week old baby in the womb doesn’t "look" like the final product, doesn’t make it non-human. One can be charged with a felony and get prison time for taking and killing an Eagle’s egg even though it would look more like an omelet than an eaglet…… A human being is no different and far more valuable than a bird. Don’t believe the rhetoric and language of the abortion industry and it’s advocates that it’s "just a clump of cells"; it is such a lie.

Finally, I just wanted to appeal to your conscience, if it hasn’t been completely seared over and is already incapable of receiving Truth or Grace…… God is real and He does exist. He did create you and the baby in your womb and in fact knew both of you before He knitted you. God does command us not to commit murder. There is a life in you. Are you really ready to commit murder and violate God’s commands? Are you really prepared to accept the eternal consequences of such a choice? I pray you are not thinking that you can easily be forgiven….. One who commits premeditated sin cannot presume upon Jesus and the atonement He gave. Can there be forgiveness for such an abomination? Perhaps….. If one is granted TRUE repentance clothed in a Godly sorrow; that would lead to new life.

I do pray your conscience is not seared. I have no doubt that if you at least chose life for the unborn child in your womb, there is a family who would provide love, care, and a home for that precious little one…….[end]

Below is my [this blogger] post on this particular Facebook page highlighting the days leading up to her planned abortion…

20121214-114935.jpg

By Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas and Rev. Flip Benham

Patrick Henry in his famous Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death speech commenced his impassioned plea with these august words:

“No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony.”

This article is written on the behalf of Rev. Flip Benham who has wrestled with the Scriptures to determine the mind of the Lord concerning the upcoming election. It is an election that many consider to be the most important in American history. It is an election that could very well determine whether or not America descends into a third world status or we begin the monumental task of reforming the church to restore America to her Biblical roots. Roots which produced the freest, most prosperous nation this poor fallen world has ever known. A nation that was once considered “A city on a hill” and “A beacon of liberty to the nations of this world.”

As Patrick Henry pointed out when it comes to weighty matters, “very worthy gentlemen” have strong opinions and differing views. When it comes to the choice of Romney and Obama this election, men and women of God we respect have adamantly made known some of their views.

Some say, “A vote for the lesser of two evils is to vote for evil still.” We agree. Some question, “Is it possible for a Christian in right standing with God to vote for a Muslim/Communist or a cultist who happens to be a Mormon? Some believe no true Christian could ever vote for Obama and his God hating party, while others declare, “A vote for Romney is to sin against God.” To those who truly fear God, this election has created great confusion.

Some have been convinced to simply stay at home and leave the ballot blank. Not an option for the true Christian – your vote is the currency of your virtue. Others are opting to vote for a third party candidate like Virgil Goode of the Constitution Party. But the Constitution Party has not done its due diligence to run to win. It has no plan down ballot. It simply runs a Godly and principled man every four years for President. Still others, realizing their Christian duty to vote yet not able to cast their vote for the scoundrels that are running, will write in the name of a Godly person that would be qualified for office and represent our Lord well.

Here is an attempt to put this election in a Biblical perspective discovered in the book of Jeremiah. It will prayerfully shine an angle of light from Scripture that provides an overarching Biblical context to discern the nature of this historical election. While this article will not dictate who people should vote for, it will prayerfully present another view from the Bible that may help guide their decision.

Personal Comments

Rev. Flip Benham preached this message during our States of Refuge Campaign this September in Little Rock, Arkansas. He asked me to put it in writing. Before initiating his message, however, I would like to add some personal commentary. For years there has been battle raging within the Republican Party. It is the moderate Republican establishment verses the evangelical Christians or Tea Party. It is a conflict between “fiscal conservatives” and “social conservatives.”

Fiscal conservatives tout limited government and responsible spending. They seek to tame the avarice of the federal beast to protect their bottom line. They are liberal, however, when it comes to the burning social issues of the day, such as abortion, homosexuality, Islam, etc. Evangelical Christians, on the other hand, discern the connection between America’s spiritual and moral decline with the litany of woe afflicting our nation. The Republican establishment seeks to suppress this view, while evangelical Christians seek to highlight it.

The Republican establishment desperately needs the votes of evangelical Christians to stay in power. After all, evangelical Christians are its base, yet it refuses to implement the Christian vision for America.

Mitt Romney represents, in my mind, the last man standing in the old Republican establishment. The establishment has for years foolishly offered candidates like Bob Dole, John McCain and now Mitt Romney. Mr. Romney, whether or not he wins the election, represents the “death rattle” of the Republican establishment’s control. If our nation survives this upcoming election without imploding, there is a wave of leaders coming who have been prepared by God Himself to take over – Tea Party.

These folks refuse to sell their birthright for a mess of politically correct pottage being shoved upon them by the Republican establishment. These are statesmen who are well aware that they cannot defeat the liberal, Marxist, ungodly, Democratic agenda until they first dethrone the Republican establishment.

R.L. Dabney exposed this conflict well by stating:

“This is a party (Northern Conservatives) which never conserves anything. Its history has been that it demurs (shows reluctance) to each aggression of the progressive party, and aims to save its credit by a respectable amount of growling, but always acquiesces at last in the innovation. What was the resisted novelty of yesterday is today one of the accepted principles of conservatism; it is now conservative only in affecting to resist the next innovation, which will tomorrow be forced upon its timidity and will be succeeded by some third revolution; to be denounced and then adopted in its turn. American conservatism is merely the shadow that follows Radicalism as it moves forward towards perdition. It remains behind it, but never retards it, and always advances near its leader. This pretended salt bath utterly lost its savor: wherewith shall it be salted? Its impotency is not hard, indeed, to explain. It is worthless because it is the conservatism of expediency only, and not of sturdy principle. It intends to risk nothing serious for the sake of the truth.”

In other words, the Republican establishment may whine about the assaults of radical progressives against our nation, but inevitably ends up defending the political ground the progressives gain. Yesterday’s issue they opposed becomes today’s issue they defend. Conservatism really is pretend salt.

God revealed this battle in the Republican Party most recently in the ordeal that Senate Republican Candidate Todd Akin from Missouri has endured. The establishment threw him under the political bus for his gaffe on rape and abortion. Principally, however, Mr. Akin was right. No innocent child should be put to death for the crime of his father. He courageously took on the exception clauses of the Republican Party which provide a loophole for abortion so large that a Mack truck could drive through it.

The Republican Party bosses immediately demanded he withdraw from the race and withdrew all support from him. They hate and fear the “Jesus” that resides in Mr. Aiken’s heart far more than they fear losing the possibility of a Republican majority in the United States Senate. Congressman Akin has refused to give in to the establishment’s bullying tactics. If he wins the senate seat, it will serve as a harbinger of what is to come for the Republican establishment. The sooner the better as far as this author is concerned.

Jeremiah’s Commentary on Israel (America)

Providentially, right before this historic election, we happen to be reading in our Operation Save America Bible reading schedule the book of Jeremiah. Though it has huge relevance as it pertains to the history of Israel, there are certain Biblical truths gleaned from Jeremiah that can easily serve as a commentary to the pathetic spiritual and moral state of America.

After God called Jeremiah as a youth to serve as a prophet, He declared, “Behold, I have put my words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant.” Jeremiah 1:9, 10. The Lord then challenged Jeremiah that he was going to need spiritual and moral grit to withstand the opposition he would surely face. “They (speaking of the prophets, princes, priests, and people of the land) will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you. For I am with you,” says the Lord, “to deliver you.” Jeremiah 1:19

In Jeremiah chapter two, the Lord uses Jeremiah as His prosecuting attorney. The prophet brings charges against the nation of Israel for her spiritual adulteries, idolatries, and sacrificing her children in the Valley of Ben Hinnom. “Has a nation changed its gods, which are not gods? But My people have changed their Glory for what does not profit.” Jeremiah 2:11. Even the heathen do not change their gods. They serve them with all the passion and fury of hell. But God’s people discard Him like a piece of trash. “For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, And hewn themselves cisterns-broken cisterns that can hold no water” Jeremiah 2:13.

Benham had this to say about this change that led Israel from the heights of God’s blessings to the depths of His judgments. Does this same change have any impact upon America today? Benham explains:

“We are witnessing in America today a change of epic proportions. Though this change began decades ago, God has given us a visible manifestation of a paradigm shift that has fully arrived. Barack Obama is that sign. He is a judgment from Almighty God shouting in our ears that we have chosen to cast the God of the Bible, the God of our Pilgrim Forefathers, and the God of our Founding Fathers, to the ground. Yes, Barack Obama is a sign from God Himself that we have chosen to abandon Him and His laws for new gods and a new set of laws. Many call this change, liberation – God calls it rebellion.

“We, in America, have become like a kite on a string that believes it can soar to the heavens if only it could break the chains of the confining string. Little does it realize that once the string is cut, all possibility for flight ceases. It is, after all, the string that enables the kite to fly…It was God, His Law, and His Son who enabled America to become great. God was the string that enabled the little kite called America to soar. It was His providential hand that made us free unlike any nation before us. It was His design that America would be “a shining city set on a hill” that the world might know that the Lord is God…But, as time passed; we forgot His many blessings and providences. We forgot the unseen hand that lifted us to these heights. We grew tired of Him. We were wearied by His moral constrictions. We desired to be free from Him, to do what we want. In essence, we became our own gods. Barack Obama said it best, ‘We are the people we have been waiting for. We are the change we have been looking for.’ We changed gods, we cut the string!

“We forsook God, the spring of living water, and hewed out cisterns, broken cisterns that could not hold water. This represents change at its worst. We became a law unto ourselves. We rejected God and His law and replaced Him with ourselves, doing what was right in our own eyes. The book of Judges puts it this way:

“After that whole generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation grew up, who knew neither the Lord nor what He had done for Israel. Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals. They forsook the Lord, the God of their fathers, who had brought them out of Egypt…They provoked the Lord to anger…In His anger against Israel the Lord handed them over to raiders who plundered them.” Judges 2:10-14.

“Please note the italicized words. Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord. There was a standard that judged between good and evil. God was the author of that standard. When Israel strayed from Him, He judged them by sending raiders upon them (The threat of Islam anyone?). After suffering at the hands of these raiders, God’s people would become painfully aware of their sin, repent and cry out to God to save them. As soon as they cried out, God rescued them from the hands of their enemies. He immediately responded to the cry of repentance.

“But there comes a dramatic change in the last five chapters of Judges. “In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as he saw fit.” Judges 17:6. God’s people had become totally debauched with no standard at all. Everyone made up his own standard of what was good and evil. Everyone did as he saw fit. God could save His people from any enemy but He would not save them from themselves. They became as God. They cut the string.

“This change represented the complete abandonment of Almighty God and His law. Though His Name was continually on their lying lips, their hearts were far from Him. It did not happen all at once, nor was anyone really aware that the change had taken place. But now there was no standard. Hosea calls this a “spirit of prostitution” that led them astray. There was no way to distinguish between good and evil. There was no king. There was no judgment. There was no judge. There was only everyone doing as he saw fit. Without judgment God can dispense no mercy, for no one knows to repent. Mercy triumphs over judgment indeed, but it cannot be dispensed apart from judgment.

“Yes, universal change has come to America and it does not bode well. The election of Barack Obama is simply the culmination of the movement (rebellion) from One God (Jesus) and standard of Law (the Bible) to other gods and standards of law. It is a movement from content to form (having a form of godliness, but denying its power). It is a movement from justice to fairness (fairness is the greatest enemy of justice for it has no standard). It is a movement from creation of wealth to redistribution of wealth (from capitalism to socialism). It is a movement from biblical love to tolerance (biblical love demands we get involved and make judgments while tolerance sits back and demands we say nothing). It is a movement from character to performance (it doesn’t matter your character so long as you perform). It is a movement from individuality to uniformity (The unique image of God shoehorned into the uniform mantra of the state). It is a movement from liberty to bondage, from joy to despair, from life to death.”

God used Jeremiah to confront Israel with her radical rebellion so that she would repent and return to Him. He called Jeremiah to go to the different gates of Jerusalem but first, to the gate of the Lord’s house (judgment begins in the House of the Lord) and there proclaim this message:

Stand in the gate of the Lord’s house, and proclaim there this word, and say, ‘Hear the word of the Lord, all you of Judah who enter in at these gates to worship the Lord!'” Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. Do not trust in these lying words, saying, ‘The temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord are these.’ “For if you thoroughly amend your ways and your doings, if you thoroughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbor, if you do not oppress the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, or walk after other gods to your hurt, then I will cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever. Behold, you trust in lying words that cannot profit. Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn incense to Baal, and walk after other gods whom you do not know, and then come and stand before Me in this house which is called by My name, and say, ‘We are delivered to do all these abominations’? Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of thieves in your eyes? Behold, I, even I, have seen it,” says the Lord. Jeremiah 7:1-11.

Perhaps it was national pride that kept Israel in a state of delusion. They trusted in their position as God’s people, rather than the God who made them a mighty nation. If anyone spoke contrary to their favored position, they were false prophets to be stoned to death. Jeremiah, in their minds, was one of those false prophets. He was a traitor to be executed, not a true prophet to be heeded.

Israel kept this mindset even to the time of Christ. John the Baptist confronted this same mentality as Israel leaned on being the physical seed of Abraham, rather than repenting and receiving God’s grace and mercy of salvation through the Messiah, Jesus the Christ. John declared, “Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, and do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.”

The American Church has found herself in this same spiritual state. She has changed gods and knows it not. A spirit of prostitution is leading her astray. “This is the way of the adultress; she wipes her mouth and says I have done nothing wrong.” Proverbs 30:20. How can we expect the Republican Party or any Party, for that matter, to get things right when God’s church has lost her way? This theological rationalizing away of her own sin has led America to cultural corruption. The church in America has failed in her duty to be salt and light, Matthew 5:13. Therefore our enemies rule over us.

Israel rejected all calls to “…return O backsliding children and I will heal your backslidings” Jeremiah 3:22). She refused, which leads to the crux of Rev. Benham’s message. Because they refused to harken to Jeremiah’s message, they were taken into captivity and those who hated them ruled over them (Jeremiah 29:1 and Psalm 106:37-42). They were subject to tyranny and unjust laws.

Benham relates Israel to our current plight. He states:

“We are now in Babylon, in captivity with enemies of God ruling over us. The great paradigm shift has taken place. We have changed gods. We have moved from one standard (the Bible) and God (Jesus), to multiple standards (everyone did that which was right in their own eyes) where every man becomes a law (god) unto himself. The manifold judgments of God are upon us.

“This once great nation built upon the Liberty that comes only from the Spirit of God in Christ, has become a laughing stock to the entire world. Instead of being a shining city on a hill proclaiming the greatness of our God, we have become a sewer gushing our squalor and filth throughout the entire earth. We have become slaves just a surely as those in Jeremiah’s time that were taken to Babylon for seventy years of captivity. They would be kept there until true repentance was their cry – seeking God with all of their heart. What was God’s message to them during this time in captivity serving under a vicious pagan king?

“Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, to all who were carried away captive, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem to Babylon: Build houses and dwell in them; plant gardens and eat their fruit. Take wives and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons and give your daughters to husbands, so that they may bear sons and daughters-that you may be increased there, and not diminished. And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace. For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Do not let your prophets and your diviners who are in your midst deceive you, nor listen to your dreams which you cause to be dreamed. For they prophesy falsely to you in My name; I have not sent them, says the Lord. For thus says the Lord: After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:4-13.”

This is an amazing admonition from Almighty God. It sounds treasonous to even entertain such a thought, yet it was God’s will. He commanded His people to seek the peace of Babylon for “in its peace you will have peace.” What? Seek the peace and serve a pagan enemy with the most abominable of tyrants, Nebuchadnezzar? He ripped the mother’s of Israel open and killed the children in their wombs. He killed the sons of King Zedekiah before his very eyes and then plucked those eyes out of his head and let him live with the memory of the last thing his eyes ever saw.

Why would God do such a thing that seems so contrary to Who He is? I’ll tell you why. God’s people were nowhere near true repentance for the murder of their children at Tophet in the Valley of Ben Hinnom. Oh, they wanted deliverance from the Babylonian hordes, but they had no desire whatever to stop the shedding of innocent blood. They had been warned again and again by the prophet Jeremiah for twenty-three years that God’s judgment would not tarry forever. It didn’t, and they were taken into captivity by a pagan king who thought he was God. They would be there for 70 years.

Why 70 years? The people of Israel would not repent. Indeed, they could not, for a “spirit of prostitution” had blinded their eyes to their own sin. Until they repented of that sin, there would be no deliverance for the nation Israel. It took 70 years in Babylonian captivity for God’s severe mercy to overcome the hardness of Israel’s heart. But when it did, His people cried out to Him in true repentance, and deliverance by God’s providential hand came through another pagan king named Cyrus. For God knows the plans he has for us, plans to prosper and not to harm us. Though his judgments fall, if we return to Him with all of our hearts in true repentance, He will be found by us.

The church in America has been blinded by this same “spirit of prostitution.” We are having church every Sunday morning while the blood of innocent children is flowing in the sewers underneath our magnificent edifices. Like Israel before the Babylonian captivity, we have rationalized that we can keep killing God’s children and come into the temple of the Lord and be safe. Nothing could be further from the truth.

We fell asleep watching “Leave it to Beaver” and awoke in Babylon with Barack Obama as headmaster. This is change we can really believe in, but only those who have eyes to see, see! Both Obama and Romney represent God’s judgment upon America. We are being ruled by those who do not know the Living Lord Jesus Christ.

We are living in a period of our own Babylonian Captivity – but we can vote. Israel could not. So how do we determine who to vote for in this Babylonian Captivity? God commands us in Jeremiah 29 to seek the peace of the city where I have carried you away to be captive; build houses, plant gardens, take wives, beget sons and daughters, give them in marriage that they too may beget children and increase in the land; “…for in its peace you will have peace.” Work for the peace of a nation ruled by pagans, cultists, Marxists? Yes! Which candidate do you believe will give us the greatest prospect for peace and prosperity in this time of God’s judgment upon our nation?

Remember, Israel’s captivity in Babylon was brought about because of her shedding the blood of the innocent (child sacrifice) at Tophet in the valley of Ben Hinnom. That is why Jeremiah was told three times not to pray for the well-being of these people (Jeremiah 7:16; 11:14; 14:11). The people wanted God to save them from their enemies but had no intention whatever of stopping the shedding of innocent blood. God had to bring her face to face with her sin and He did it by bringing her into Babylon for 70 years.

It was in Babylon, that pagan city under pagan kings, that Israel’s hard heart was plowed up and she repented of her many sins and cried out to God for mercy. He knew the plans He had for her. But He had to bring her to repentance before He could pour His mercy into her. He desires mercy, not sacrifice.

Jeremiah chapters 30-31, explain more vividly the entire restoration process (His refining fire) used to bring the nation Israel to confession and repentance and ultimate healing. It is also in chapter 31 that we have our first glimpse of the New Covenant that would be ushered into us through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Right now in America our wound is incurable. “This is what the Lord says: ‘Your wound is incurable, your injury beyond healing. There is no one to plead your cause, no remedy for your sore, no healing for you…I have struck you as an enemy would and punished you as would the cruel, because your guilt is so great and your sins so many.'” Jeremiah 30:12-14.

Neither Mitt Romney nor Barack Obama nor any other candidate can solve what is ailing us. Blood is coursing down the corridors of our schools, workplaces, and streets. God is draining all of our wealth. Our enemies are ruling over us. America has become a laughingstock before the whole world. And we are dragging God’s Name into the sewer of our own sins. God seeks to make His Name glorious – and look at what we have done to it.

“Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why is there no healing for the wound of my people?” Jeremiah 8:22. The wound is incurable because we will not apply to the Great Physician nor use His remedy. We believe that if we elect the right guy we will be fixed. Not so! God is fixing to get us into a bigger fix that can’t be fixed so that He can fix us. Seventy years in Babylon seems like a mighty long time, but that is what it took for God’s people to finally realize that it was their sin (the shedding of innocent blood at Tophet) that needed to be repented of.

Do you believe the Church of Jesus Christ is ready to repent of the sin of child-killing in America today? Not hardly. She thinks everyone else should repent but she will go on her merry way allowing children to be slaughtered with nary a finger lifted to rescue those being led to the slaughter. Until we, the Church of Jesus Christ, repent of our apathy and indolence toward these precious preborn children there is no remedy for our sin. As Jeremiah was ordered by God not to pray for the well-being of this people, neither should we be praying for the well-being of the recalcitrant Church. But we should be praying for the well-being of our nation, pagan and as sorry as it is, because in its peace, we will have peace. We must do this for our children and our children’s children.

When God’s church finally stops looking for Republicans, Conservatives, Independents, and Constitutionalists, to bring an end to the abortion holocaust savaging our nation, and repents, and begins to love her neighbor as herself – God Himself will bring healing to our land.

“Abortion will come to an end in America when the Church of Jesus Christ makes up her mind it will come to an end – and not one second sooner!” It is at this point that we will see that there is a balm in Gilead and a Great Physician there. He has been waiting for almost 40 years.

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.

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…

Wyoming-Lettertotheeditor2012.pdf

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!

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!

Hello, my name is Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas, the assistant director of Operation Save America. By now, you are probably aware of our new national campaign called the States of Refuge. This communication is our first attempt to make personal contact with you. Find enclosed a book, Won by Love by Norma McCorvey, the Jane Roe of Roe vs. Wade infamy, a powerful DVD calledAbortion Matrix, and several tracts. We pray you will take the time to read and watch these materials.

It is in the fear and humility of God; we contact you and submit these resources. We understand that the mere words contained in this communication may not suffice to truly convince you of our heartfelt concern for the condition of your soul before a Holy God. Regardless, it is still our sincere prayer that you will receive our attempt, inadequate as it may seem, in the spirit in which it is sent. Our genuine desire is for the Lord to take this meager communiqué, anoint it by His Spirit, and speak directly to your heart.

Mr. Thomas Tvedten, we have a solemn responsibility before the Lord God of Hosts to defend the innocent who are being dragged away to slaughter (Proverbs 24:11, 12). Most of us, if not all of us, have failed miserably in our obedience. This we humbly confess before God and you. At the same time, God has called us to the ministry of reconciliation, which is found in 2 Corinthians 5:18-20, “Now all things are of God, who reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.”

Mr. Tvedten, we realize that you may endure much to maintain your abortion mill. We can only speculate as to what your participation in child killing has wrought upon your life. Only you and God know for sure the anguish, the possible paranoia, and nightmares that have invaded your dreams at night. We do not know what lengths you have gone to quiet your conscience in order to continue to kill children made in the image of God. And though you may have prospered financially with the blood money you have accumulated, we can all be assured it has come with a price.

The word of God warns in Proverbs 28:17, “A man burdened with bloodshed will flee into a pit; Let no one help him.” One translation says that person will be a fugitive, a wanderer, till death, let no one support him. Through the years, you may have garnered the support from our government, the pro-abort community, and an unjust law that has unleashed Hell to devour our nameless sons and daughters in America. Though you probably view this support as a refuge, it is in truth, a violation of Scripture and a major betrayal against your own soul. We, on the other hand, do not only withhold our support from what you are tragically involved with, but we actually resist you. Though you may view us as your enemy, we are in fact those who love you enough to tell you the truth. Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32).”

Mr. Tvedten, however you perceive this letter, our intention is to make God’s appeal known through us, “be reconciled to God.” Our prayer is you will heed the admonishment found in Isaiah 55:7, “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.”

We know firsthand, it takes courage and humility to admit being wicked. But that is the first step towards deliverance through Christ. We stand with you, praying that you will muster the courage, confess your sins against God, your crimes against the little ones, repent, and receive the gracious gift of God, the salvation of your soul. The good news is, no matter how far you’ve gone, no matter how deep the stain of your iniquity, there is still a God in heaven that will cleanse, heal, and forgive. Turn from child killing, stop the slaughter, and call upon God for mercy. He will hear you in Jesus’ Holy Name!

IN KING JESUS’ SERVICE,

Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

Breast cancer charity cuts Planned Parenthood funding.

Here is an article from the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, Friday, January 20, 2012. Remember Welsco, the company that was delivering containers of gas to the abortion mill in Little Rock? When they found out that they were doing business with an abortion mill, they asked for their tanks back and made it clear that all business ties with the mill would be severed. When the police came to help the company recover the containers, they were asked to leave the premises. Welsco is now having to sue the abortion mill to get their empty containers back. What a “good neighbor” the abortion industry is.

Gas firm sues abortion clinic to regain tanks

A North Little Rock gas-supply company is suing Arkansas’ only surgical-abortion provider, asking a judge to force Little Rock Family Planning Services Clinic to return gas containers leased from the company.

The lawsuit by Welsco Inc. was filed Tuesday in Pulaski County Circuit Court. The three-page complaint asks Judge Alice Gray to force the clinic on Office Park Drive to return 13cylinders used for nitrous oxide and medical grade oxygen that Welsco rented to the clinic in December.

The suit says Welsco, represented by Richard Donovan of the Rose Law Firm,’ stopped supplying the gases to the clinic and asked for the containers back, but the clinic refused. No hearings have been scheduled, and clinic officials have not responded to the lawsuit.

According to a Jan. 6 Little Rock police report, officers were called to die clinic by Welsco representative Aaron Campbell when he was re-buffed by clinic workers in his efforts to collect the containers.

Clinic director Lori Williams refused Campell’s offer of a refund and told police she’d purchased the tanks and wasn’t returning them until she could find a new supplier, the report states. Officers found no indication of wrongdoing (The abortion Industry never does wrong, right?).

States of Refuge Arkansas Leader, Pastor Mark Kiser’s Report

Here is a brief video clip of ministering to the security guard at the last remaining abortion mill in Arkansas.

It was a very busy day at Little Rock Family Planning as they killed 25 on that day. Wayne, the security guard, was the first to arrive and he wasn’t overly happy we were already there. As a matter of fact, he told me, “You need to shut up,” and that I had “nothing he needed to hear.” Pray for Wayne, I do believe God is working on him. Later that morning we were joined by Marry Huey and Jody Hagen, both local Christians standing for the pre-born.

The abortionist, Tom Tveden, showed up around 8:30 am just missing hitting me with his car. (I guess he was in a hurry to get to work.) He heard the gospel as he was entering the building. He turned and came out by the side of the building and shouted: “You stand for death….I am standing for life!” Yes…that is the exact words he used. I need someone to explain what he meant. He stands for life?????

At noon we headed to Quitman AR. hometown of Tom Tveden. In December we had done an outreach there to share with the locals the nature of Mr. Tveden business.

As we began to visit with a few of the locals, we could tell the spirit had changed. Many did not want to talk about it at all. They were not rude, just didn’t want talk.


We did go to the police station where we were told by the police that the Tveden’s were very upset about the outreach and wanted charges pressed against us. Police told them that we did nothing illegal and they could not and would not bring charges against us. He, the police officer, also told us that Mrs. Tveden was very close to having assault charges brought against her for pushing and grabbing a postal worker over the flyers being sent to
so many” houses in the Quitman area! All is not well in quite little Quitman, Arkansas.

After that, we headed back to Little Rock for fellowship and rest.

On Sunday morning we attended Redeemer Community Fellowship where Rich and Jody Hagen attend. The lead Pastor there is Bob Lepine of Family Life Today. Rich was allowed to speak for a few minutes on States of Refuge and then we were allowed to pass out States of Refuge brochures to the folks as they left the church. In all we passed out about 120. Mr. Lepine and I had a great conversation and maybe, just maybe, the door will be opened for more work there. Please pray that I would get another opportunity to speak with him!

Sunday afternoon we headed to the March for Life in down town Little Rock. They estimated around 3000 in attendance. We were able to hand out about 900 States of Refuge brochures and 500 typed copies of the States of Refuge Press Release.

This is where I was told by a local Catholic why they were NOT at the clinic Saturday. It was because I was there! Ouch! Little-O-Mark from Springfield, Mo. kept the locals from coming out to defend life? She said they did not like our preaching or signs. I replied without thinking, “neither does Satan.” We finished our conversation by me telling her I would be at their 40 Days for Life kickoff rallyFeb. 19 and that I sure would like to speak! Let’s see where that goes.

As the people were leaving, I had the opportunity to talk with Rose Mimms. Rose is the State Director for Arkansas Right to Life. Man, she is not a big fan of Rusty, Flip, or OSA….and I guess….now me! She did however agree to sit down with me in Feb. and see how we could work together. Maybe come to a compromise. We closed our conversation by me telling her that we can NEVER compromise the gospel and that Jesus was, is and always will be THE STANDARD! (I am not very good at building bridges.)

I want to close this report with telling you about Ken Frymire! This was Ken’s first visit to an abortion clinic! He has been a Christian for years, but never challenged to take his faith “out into the streets.” In the past year, Ken has heard Pastor Mark Holick, Flip Benham and Coach Dave preach. He has heard all of them say we MUST go and stand for the babies. On Sunday evening on our way back to Springfield, Ken said, “I get it now…..I get it! The Church has to show up. If just half of those at the March for Life would come out to the clinic……it would be shut down in just a few days. I can’t wait to tell my wife……..I got to get her down here!” ~Another warrior for the pre-born children!!!!!!!!

We will be doing our “Word in Warfare” in Little Rock, May 4-5-6, 2012. If any of the saints would like to join us please let me know!
