Dear Champion of the Lord and the Preborn, 


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

 Church Letter

Dear Christian Servant,

 The Lord richly bless you!  We pray this communication finds you well, always abounding in the love and work of our Lord.  Enclosed is a copy of a powerful documentary film called the Abortion Matrix and a brochure promoting a national campaign called the States of Refuge.  

These materials are being sent to churches in five different states; each of which has only one remaining abortion mill left within its borders.  We believe that 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.  We are asking you to consider this grave evil that threatens our national survival.  We are asking you to join with us in making your state the first abortion free state in America.  

 The gates of hell cannot prevail against the Church of Jesus Christ.  When we cry out to God in repentance (2 Chronicles 7:14) we give Him an opportunity to have mercy, forgive our sin, and heal our land.  Ours is a call to stand in the gap and make up the hedge before our nation collapses under the weight of her own sin.

The participating ministries, listed on the right, have sought the Lord, weighed this vision before Him, and believe the time has come for its implementation.  We pray you will see its value as well and support the work that will potentially liberate your state from the blight of blood guiltiness.

Most of us are pastors of local congregations or traveling ministers who value and recognize the authority of the local church.  We seek to work through God’s church for His glory and the benefit of the little ones made in His image. We humbly seek your amen, covering, and blessing as we are determined to spend and be spent in the battle for men’s souls, the lives of children, and for the future of our nation.

We are seeking a peg in the Temple as it were; to rest this vision in each state where the abortion industry at its weakest point.  There is absolutely no way that the abortion industry can long continue in your state when the theology of the church house becomes biography at the gates of hell.  We know this to be true.  In 1991, the zenith of the abortion movement, there were over 2,000 free standing abortion mills in America.  Today, there are 713.  The battle is being won as simple Christians live out their faith in the streets.  We win when we give our God an opportunity to show up and show off!

We will employ only Biblical principles and stand upon God’s Word alone.  Then we will have church in the streets at the exposed places in our state.  We will fast, pray, praise, worship, proclaim, provide, and protect, at the very place where God’s precious image bearers are being slaughtered – the local abortion mill.  In the truest sense we will be living out our repentance in Godly sorrow that leads to life.

Our righteous goal is to return to Almighty God and His Commandments that He may once again make America “a city of a hill” and “a light to the nations.”  If you find any merit in this opportunity or have any questions do not hesitate to contact us.  We know God has friends in every city.  Men that understand the times and know what Israel (the Church) should do.

You are the brothers we are looking to partner with to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death.  To speak for those who cannot speak for themselves.  We pray that we can come together for a time such as this to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8).

Government Letter    

  Dear Honorable Civil Servant,

The Lord richly bless you! Find enclosed a brochure announcing a new national campaign to liberate America from the blood guiltiness that is defiling our beloved land. It is called the States of Refuge, Operation: First Abortion Free States. You, along with every other Representative that serves in your state, are receiving this communiqué. The reason has profound implications. You serve civilly in a state that has one abortion mill remaining that kills babies in the womb and sheds innocent blood.

Abortion is a national tragedy that has invoked the just wrath of God upon our beleaguered nation. Isaiah 59:14 accurately depicts our precarious state, “Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; (Keep in mind that it is righteousness that exalts a nation) for truth has fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” George Mason, Founding Father, when contending against the abomination of slavery in his day warned, “As nations cannot be rewarded or punished in the next world, they must be in this. By an inevitable chain of causes and effects, Providence punishes national sins by national calamities.”

The Civil War was the fulfillment of his warning. It cost our nation 630,000 men. Our nation’s blood, treasure, and flower of our youth were crushed by this devastating conflict. This was the penalty enacted for violating the liberty clause in the Declaration of Independence. We took away the right to liberty from our black brothers and sisters and our nation was harshly judged. What do you think the toll will be when God Almighty demands an accounting for all the innocent blood that America has shed since the infamous Roe vs. Wade Decision?

Our nation, with the blessing of the state and the silent consent of the church, have murdered close to sixty million children made in the image of God. We have denied the most fundamental right of all, the right to life. Every other American right is meaningless, if this right is not protected. Truly, the Civil War may be a tame response from heaven when we consider the enormity between denying liberties as compared to denying life. In fact, President Lincoln stressed, “Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves.” Will the same hold true for Americans who deny life to their own children? Are we forfeiting the life of our nation in order to continue the slaughter of our posterity?

Each day we read in the headlines the dire predicaments that threaten our national survival. There is a direct connection between our spiritual and moral state and the litany of woe overwhelming us today. The Bible teaches that when innocent blood is shed, it cries out for vengeance from the blood-stained ground and rises into the ears of a Holy and Just God (Genesis 4:10 & Rev. 6:9, 10). It pollutes and defiles the land (Numbers 35:33; Psalm 106:38). It can withhold God’s forgiveness from a nation that allows the shedding of innocent blood to continue unabated (2 Kings 24:3, 4).

It defiles God’s sanctuary and profanes His holy name (Leviticus 20:1-4). It provokes God’s anger against His own people. His abhorrence is manifest in such a way that those who hate God’s people rule over them (Psalm 106:37-42). Consider the federal beast currently devouring our freedoms, finances, and future as it relates to this sobering warning. Thus, citizens will be subject to tyranny and unjust laws by which they cannot abide. A fierce and cruel people will attack and commit terroristic acts. God will lift His hand of protection and use enemies to judge nations that commit child sacrifice and shed innocent blood (2 Kings 24:1-4). Consider the rise of Islam in America and weigh how God has dealt with men and nations who allowed this idolatrous act in times past.

Unjust bloodshed will unleash a spirit of violence and murder that will savage a nation. In the case of abortion, we are sowing violence in the womb and are reaping it in our schools, workplaces, churches, and streets. Hosea 4:2b states, “Bloodshed touches bloodshed, it breaks out.” If we do not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue us (Ezekiel 35:6). Violence will grow up like a rod to punish the iniquity of nations that allows innocent blood to be shed (Ezekiel 7:11). If civil government does not bring justice upon those who commit murder, God Himself will judge this sin against Him and this crime against humanity. Therefore, if lawful authorities refuse to exercise justice upon those who commit murder, the penalty passes to the society that tolerates it. Natural disasters, plagues, pestilence, poverty, war, civil strife, and other national catastrophes will visit the iniquity of the land (Leviticus 18). The church and state may fail in their God-ordained responsibilities, but God cannot deny Himself or His holy commands. National sin always leads to national calamity.

The divine calling upon civil government and that which establishes legitimacy before God is to protect life and stop the shedding of innocent blood. President Thomas Jefferson concurred. He stated, “The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.” Abortion destroys human life and thus violates government’s sacred trust. It is one of the toxic roots that are producing the dangerous fruits that are choking the true vine of freedom under our watch.

We can continue to treat the wound of America lightly and seek a political band aid to what ails us or we can do as the Bible commands under these wretched conditions. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).”

The best way to serve our nation and get us back on track is not another governmental program. We have to stop murdering our own children and parading our sin like Sodom. We must repent of these sins, crimes, and abominations. God Himself will restore our fortunes with His blessings if we meet His righteous conditions. God’s word states, “If God be for us, who can be against us (Romans 8:31)?” Conversely, if God is against us, it doesn’t make a difference who is for us.

We pray that you will carefully reflect on this letter and the vision of the brochure. If President Obama and some of the Democratic Party can support the “Occupy” fiasco, how much more should you support a mission that seeks to liberate America from the blood guilt we are staggering under today? Please do everything in your power to shut down the one remaining abortion mill in your state and then make sure your state never allows for such atrocities in the future. Only then can we expect the true hope and change we desperately need in this dark hour of our history.
