34 YEARS OF UNABATED CHILD KILLING
Sometimes it is difficult for us to comprehend the magnitude of the toll the abortion holocaust has taken in America over the past 34 years. When one says that over 50 million children have been slaughtered by legalized abortion since January 22, 1973 , the numbers just don't seem to register. Below is a map of the United States of America indicating the number of states that would have their populations totally wiped out if war were to come to our shores and 50 million people were killed.
If this shocks you, perhaps you might want to rethink who the real “terrorists” are. We are being destroyed as a nation by an enemy from within. We are being destroyed by a lie that was birthed in the very pit of hell. The lie took its physical form in the Roe v. Wade decision issued by the Supreme Court of the United States of America on January 22, 1973. Yes, the Supreme Court in its malevolent wisdom magically found in the United States Constitution a “woman's right to privacy” (she could kill her own child in the womb if she so chose).
Never mind that for more than 300 years our Pilgrim forefathers, Founding Fathers, past presidents, legislators, and Supreme Court justices had never dreamed of such a malicious precedent. Today, the lie has become law. It is a lie that transcends every racial, ethnic, political, and geographic boundary. It is a lie that cuts across every human heart in America. It is a lie that divides us (red states versus blue states). It is a lie that is destroying us.
Abortion reveals, more than any other issue, the devastation of the lie and its true identity. It shows that the real battle in our nation is spiritual, and therefore can never be resolved politically. It is the ancient battle that began in heaven and moved to this earth. It has swept across the pages of the Bible and history ever since. It is a battle between two world views - the seed of the serpent vs. the seed of the woman (read Genesis 3:15).
The lie (my rights, my body, my choice) brings enslavement and death. The truth (not my will, but Thine be done) brings liberty and life. There is no middle ground! We must “plead the case of the fatherless to win it!”
THE ABORTED STATES OF AMERICA
The map above has 17 states blacked out. The population of these states is equal to the 50,000,000+ reported “legal” abortions since 1973. Perhaps this visual will help demonstrate the magnitude of the slaughter.
The lie has wreaked its horrible devastation and is destroying America. This lie can only be overcome by the Truth. The Truth has but one name: Jesus Christ! “They overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” Revelation 12:11. Ours is a call to the Church to storm the gates of hell!
Please join us on Monday morning, January 22, 2007, as we “ plead the case of the fatherless” who have been slaughtered in our nation. We are asking that you “give ‘em heaven” at your local abortion mill that morning and then hold a press conference at 11:30 a.m. We will bring the theology of the church house into the streets of our cities and allow it to become biography as we give a voice to voiceless children.
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!
January 22, 2007 34th Memorial of Roe v. Wade, Press Conference
Local pastors, business leaders, crisis pregnancy center directors, and Christians will join Operation Save America for a press conference and a Memorial Service, mourning 34 years of unabated child-killing. Their purpose: to end child-killing in the city of _________________by bringing the theology of the church house into the streets – right to the doors of the _______ local abortion mills in this city!
It has been 34 years since that day of infamy on January 22, 1973, when our Supreme Court unleashed the floodgates of hell and murder upon this nation. For 34 years the Church of Jesus Christ has sat silently by and tolerated a lie that is destroying our nation. We have said, “Abortion is wrong, but it is not my calling.” Today, over 50 million children are dead. NO MORE!
NO MORE, will we sit passively by while little children die. NO MORE , will we wait for the President, the Congress, the Supreme Court, or the Republican Party to save the lives of unborn children. NO MORE, will we peacefully coexist with child-killing in the city of ______________! WE ARE AT WAR!
“Abortion will come to an end in _________, when the Church of Jesus Christ makes up her mind it will come to an end – not one second sooner,” said Rev Flip Benham, National Director of Operation Save America. “The responsibility for ending abortion in the city of __________ and in America rests squarely upon the shoulders of the Church of Jesus Christ.”
What: Press Conference
Eleven gentle Christians will be returning to Jackson, Mississippi this Tuesday, December 19, 2006, to stand trial for exposing the horror of abortion on the streets of Jackson . There is one remaining abortion mill in the entire state of Mississippi , and it is located in Jackson. Jackson became the focal point of America's war over abortion this past summer as hundreds of Christians came to the streets.
These Christians were arrested for preaching the Gospel of Christ, holding Scripture signs, and carrying graphic pictures of aborted babies at various venues on the public side walks inside the city. One man was arrested for carrying the cross of Christ upon his shoulder. So much for the First Amendment!
The Jackson police stood idly by as anarchists (many wearing masks over their faces) threatened Christian moms, dads, and their children with vile and filthy language, slashed tires on cars, and committed obscene acts in front of our children. The police watched as these thugs jumped on top of a car, beat it with poles, broke its windshield, and attempted to drag the Christian out of the car and beat him.
The Jackson police did nothing though they witnessed clear violations of the law, yet found it necessary to arrest Christians for carrying signs that witnessed for Jesus. What kind of a city would do this? A city providing cover for the abortion industry. That's right! It takes a village to kill a child and the city of Jackson is complicit.
When Operation Save America came to Jackson July 15-22, 2006, it provided the safest week in over thirty years for children safe in their mother's wombs in Mississippi. Hundreds of Christians from across the nation converged on Jackson in hopes to make Mississippi the first abortion-free-state in America . Rather than help this Christian proclamation, the officials in power attempted to criminalize it.
We went to Jackson expecting to be hammered by the courts as arbitrarily as we were persecuted on the streets in July. Our experience in July taught us that Jackson had chosen to serve another king and banish King Jesus.
Before entering the court building our group met on the steps to pray and witness for Jesus. The word went out. Cal Zastrow led us in a number of hymns that lifted us into the very presence of God. Among them were: Stand Up For Jesus, A Mighty Fortress is Our God, Faith of Our Fathers, and I pledge Allegiance to the Lamb. Passersby stopped to listen as we lifted up His name in praise.
Eleven gentle Christians from all over the nation, who were arrested in July, returned to the city at great personal cost because we who follow King Jesus are law keepers, not law breakers. When the roll was called in the court the judge saw that “they all came back!” What a powerful testimony!
Rev. Ed Martin, Clifton Powell, Tanya Britton, Esther Mann, Dr. Patrick Johnson, Pastor William Dunfey, Ron Brock, Phillip Carnaggio, Harriet Ashley, James Esser and Franklin Weimer all appeared before the Jackson court. Rev. Cal Zastrow appeared before a court in Pearl, MS a few weeks before.
Court began at 10:00am. During the morning session, we listened as a female police officer changed and embellished her testimony and seemed to be getting away with it. Each defendant honored God in their witness and respectful demeanor. The Word of God went out and the testimony was powerful, yet four were convicted of violating the city's “Special Events Ordinance.” Unbeknownst to us, this “Special Events Ordinance” banished all First Amendment activity on any public sidewalk except 2903 State Street. We were all shocked!
Steve Crampton, from the American Family Association (AFA) was brilliant in pointing out the weaknesses in this ordinance and its obvious infringement on First Amendment rights, but the court convicted anyway. In speaking to Steve during the lunch break, I learned just how amazing our God is. He can even use a donkey! The judge referred to a “federal case” that might affect our cases. I assumed it was our challenge to the ordinance. It was not. Our challenge is mired in court paperwork, BUT God was using a donkey – the ACLU!
Yes, the ACLU was challenging the constitutionality of the ordinance that very day in federal court. If they prevail, and it looks like they will, our cases will all be reversed on appeal. In the afternoon we began winning some cases and I realized that the only ones we lost concerned the ordinance. God was moving.
Some of the gentle Christians were charged with disturbing the peace or disorderly conduct. All of these cases were either dismissed or found “not guilty.” The testimony of the officers concerning the peaceful and respectful manner in which the Christians conducted themselves could bring no conviction. When asked directly if any of our group used profanity or threatened anyone, they responded with a resounding, “No!”
Four were found guilty, of “ordinance related” charges but these will probably be overturned on appeal. God's Word was proclaimed in the Court. The Christians honored Christ in their testimony. Cal Zastrow and James Esser reminded the Court of its culpability in the shedding of innocent blood. The testimony of the saints was absolutely honest, even when it cost. Over and over these defendants proclaimed Jesus from the stand.
“And you will even be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. But when they hand you over, do not worry about how or what you are to say; for it will be given you in that hour what you are to say. For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.” Mt 10:18-20.
35-40 saints from all points of the country converged on Wal-Mart Corporate HQ's in Bentonville, Arkansas this December 15, 2006. We came with our faces low to the ground, but with our hearts determined to deliver a difficult message to a wayward corporation. Wal-Mart had become a manifestation of the battle at the gates of hell.
The Church of Jesus Christ came out of the closet in an attempt to save an old friend from a diabolical lie. It had been 16 years since the death of Mr. Sam Walton, the godly founder of Wal-Mart Stores. It soon became apparent that Wal-Mart had forgotten all about the God who made her great. Wal-Mart has no intention of repenting for promoting homosexual sodomy or enabling the murder of God's children by distributing the Plan B abortion pill. The favorite store of the American Christian family has become an enemy of God.”
Our task was to bring the Gospel of Christ right to the front door of Wal-Mart Corporate HQ's in hopes that the message delivered would bring corporate repentance. It brought only corporate arrogance. Wal-Mart took a huge hit this past November as hundreds of Christian families took to the streets of their local Wal-Mart stores – not to purchase items, but to speak the truth. They passed out Wal-Mart information, Gospel tracts, and carried signs. Ron Brock toured his Truth Truck across the USA and hit over 250 Wal-Mart and Sam's stores himself.
Since our Savewalmart.com website was constructed by Joseph Parenti in mid-October, we have received over a million hits. The web also reveals the blackmail and extortion of all of corporate America by the radical homosexual agenda and abortion industry. Sam Walton is dead. He can't fix the sorry estate Wal-Mart finds itself in. He faithfully ran his lap of the race and served his Lord well. It is our turn now!”
Keep storming the gates in Jesus' Name
