The letter to challenge Ben Smaltz and the Indiana Right to Life to repent and do what is needed and necessary to abolish abortion just went out to 25,000 subscribers in his district.

At the same time, 3 different abortionist’s neighborhoods in Indiana are receiving a flyer in the mail exposing their murderous activity to their neighbors. We will have a traveling team to bring forth a 2nd fold witness during our regional event for “Leaders A Time Like This Demands.”

Our opening rally begins tonight. The saints are on the way. We covet your prayers. While we are going forth on the streets, in the culture, and to the state officials in Indiana, every legislator and sheriff will receive this letter in their email.

An old wine skin cannot contain the new wine. Revival (New Wine) and Reformation (New Wine Skin) must be established as we continue to start brush fires in the minds of men to abolish abortion now and restore our nation in righteousness.

Letter to Indiana Officials

Dear Honorable or Sheriff_________________________

We pray this communication finds you well always abounding in the will of God for your life. This letter is one of critical importance. It deals with the much needed reformation that must take place in Indiana and our nation if we are to secure a future and a hope for our posterity.

As you may know, our founders established a form of government known as federalism. True federalism understands that all levels of government possess lawful authority.

An important aspect of federalism is that whenever one branch of government begins to play the tyrant, it is incumbent upon all other branches (whether federal, state, county, or local) to resist that branch – even if that branch is the Supreme Court itself.

Our nation has a rich history in this regard. Just eleven years after the ink had dried on the U.S. Constitution, the federal government acted outside its constitutional restraints. Kentucky stood against their lawlessness. The Kentucky Resolution of 1798 stated in part: “…and that whensoever the general [federal] government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.”

Kentucky interposed – Kentucky simply said no to unjust federal “laws.”

The same held true for the state of Wisconsin. In 1854, Wisconsin’s Legislature and Supreme Court demonstrated interposition in the Joshua Glover/Sherman Booth incident by defying the federal government regarding slavery. This included defying the U. S. Supreme Court.

The legislature stated in part, “Resolved: That this assumption of jurisdiction by the federal judiciary, in the said case, and without process, is an act of undelegated power, and therefore without authority, void, and of no force.”

They declared the federal Fugitive Slave Act to be “without authority, void, and of no force” in Wisconsin. They defied and interposed against the injustice, rather than enforce it.

In our day, it has become painfully clear that the federal judiciary continues to play the tyrant. The U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) has consistently been the dispenser of unjust, immoral, and unconstitutional court opinions, including, preborn babies can be murdered and a man can “marry” a man. SCOTUS has engineered social transformation without representation. By this judicial usurpation, America has exchanged a monarchy for an oligarchy.

Tragically, no governor, state attorney general, state legislature, or sheriff has done their duty to rein in SCOTUS. They have complied with several unjust, immoral, and unconstitutional opinions by hiding behind the common song of our day: “The Supreme Court has ruled – all we can do is obey.”

This mantra is a lie. It is not how our founders intended the states to respond to egregious acts of evil by the federal government. Rather, they expected interposition by the states. They expected defiance. The song of their day was “Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.”

The assertion that an opinion by the U. S. Supreme Court is “the law of the land” is repugnant to our form of government. Roe vs. Wade can never be the law of the land. It is the lie of the land. It is legal fiction and pretend legislation. Courts cannot make law and any law that violates God’s law (Thou shall not murder) is no law at all. This is the worldview that upheld Western civilization for over 1500 years. Divine law trumps human law. In fact, the appeal to God’s higher law is what inspired our founding fathers to break ties with England to become an independent nation in the earth.

Besides this, the idea that SCOTUS is the final arbiter of what is or is not constitutional is intolerable to our system of government. The belief that all other branches of government must bow down to the court opinions of SCOTUS is a legal ruse.

Thomas Jefferson, who penned the Kentucky Resolution of 1798, responded to the false idea that the Supreme Court was the “final arbiter” of what is or is not constitutional. He stated, “You seem . . . to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.” He went on to write: “The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots.”

We submit to you his warnings have come to pass. The Supreme Court has steadily written to itself powers never granted by the Constitution. For years, SCOTUS has been subjecting all other government jurisdictions to its tyranny. The Constitutional chain must be reapplied to check its despotism.

Men will forbear and so we should for even a long painful season, but there comes a point where forbearance becomes sin. There comes a point where forbearance becomes cowardice. There comes a point when men realize they no longer have the convenience of acting indifferent towards the unjust and immoral actions of their government. Our own Declaration of Independence established this truth for all Americans.

Thus, we submit to the state of Indiana that the lawlessness of the federal judiciary should no longer be forborne.

We submit to you that the murder of the preborn should not be forborne. The perverting of marriage and a host of other evils by the federal judiciary should not be forborne.

A little-known doctrine in our day that has been employed by men for thousands of years and has proven to peaceably rein in the lawless acts of government officials is the doctrine of the lesser magistrate. The doctrine simply stated is:

Whenever the higher-ranking civil authority makes unjust, immoral, or constitutionally repugnant laws, policies, or court opinions, the lower-ranking civil authority has both the right and the duty not to obey the superior authority, and if necessary, actively resist it.

We have included in this communication an important bill that will be introduced in your next legislative session. It is called the Protection at Conception Act. The bill has a sponsor, but it needs many more co-sponsors. We encourage you to get behind and defend this just bill. It passes Biblical, Constitutional, and historical muster to end the lawlessness and corruption of SCOTUS and its murderous rampage against the preborn child, who is made in the image of God.

May Christ rally your hearts to righteousness and justice. May Indiana make redemptive history. May you lead the way to protect the preborn and preserve the God ordained institution of marriage in Jesus’ mighty name! (2 Samuel 23:3)
