Death Sentence for the Innocent


Scripture Meditation: 1 Kings 3:16-18, Matthew 2:18, Psalm 139:13-16, Luke 1:41

“A voice was heard in Ramah, weeping and loud lamentation, Rachel weeping for her children; she refused to be comforted, because they are no more.”  Matthew 2:18

When New York’s Governor celebrated legalizing the murder of unborn children at the time of birth, he lit up the city’s landmarks with a pink light, and when Virginia tried to push the same legislation and the Governor described how an innocent newborn’s fate would be in the hands of his/her mother, the light in the hand of the lady, who holds the torch of liberty, “darkened”.

And a cry went out across this country from those who mourn for the innocent; for the hand of their protection is no more.

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12

The Work of Faith


seed

Scripture Meditation: Romans 12:3, Hebrews 11:1, Matthew 7:22-23, John 6:29, John 17:3, 1 John 5:3-4, Romans 10:17

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:8-10

God gives to all believers in Jesus Christ a measure of faith to accomplish His Will and  to do His Work. As believers, we cannot accomplish more than what He gives us to do. (Romans 12:3).

Our personal faith is in Him to do the work because apart from Him we can do nothing. To the extent of our personal faith and the  measure of faith given, we are able to accomplish His Will; bringing others to faith through the power of His gospel message.

The fruit of the work of faith is eternal, while the fruit of our own work is futile. (Matthew 7:22-23)
We are expected to do nothing beyond or less than what we are capable of doing through the power of His Holy Spirit.

Faith in the One Who gives a measure of faith to accomplish the task results in eternal rewards and an abundant fruitful life on earth.

It is also the Lord’s work to prepare the way, and make ready the place where we work and sow His seed through His grace. (John 1:14-15, John 6:44)

A heart full of rocks and debris, is not ready to receive the seed of Truth. Therefore, it is the work of the Holy Spirit to plow up every obstacle in the way. Then,  through acknowledgment of the Truth and sincere repentance, the heart is subtle and fertile in receiving and hearing the living Word sown.
(Matthew 13:18-23, John 3:3, Romans 10:17, John 3:7-8)

The Cry of the Innocent


“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” Proverbs 31:8-9

I recently attended the movie, “Gosnell”, based on the true story of a late term abortionist who was prosecuted for murder. Although Hollywood, and the media have suppressed the advertisement, it has ranked #9 in box office proceeds. It is in only 673 theatres nationwide, however, even with the suppression and limitations, it is making an impact on those who view it. Gosnell was convicted by a pro-choice jury who after hearing the horrific details of what abortion entails changed to pro-Life.
The reason the liberal democrats fought Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation with lies and slander, was their fear he would judge base on the constitution instead of legislating their liberal ideology. They fear by interpreting the constitution rightly, instead of legislating from the bench, Roe vs Wade could possibly be overturned. The democrats receive funds from Planned Parenthood and abortion advocates. Their mantra is “Women’s Rights”.
Most Democrats are in step with Obama’s stance to protect women’s rights to an abortion and to give no rights or protection to the child who survives one.

While as a state Senator for Illinois, Obama advocated for the right to kill a baby who survives an abortion. His argument in the 2003 vote against Illinois’s Born-Alive Infants Protection bill was as follows:
“Number one, whenever we define a previable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or the other elements in the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a child, a nine-month-old child that was delivered to term. That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place. I mean, it would essentially bar abortions, because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an antiabortion statute.”

Legal abortion is not safe for anyone, including women. The procedure is unnatural and with the slaughter of the unborn child many women suffer emotionally, physically and spiritually in the aftermath.
Many will not go and see what women and unborn children suffer through abortion, as they stick their head in the sand, but just as the German people during the aftermath were made to visit the horror of the concentration camps and bury the dead, there will be a time of repentance and mourning over the millions of innocent children snatched from their mothers’ womb.  Abortionists and their advocates depend on our complacency and refusal to acknowledge and look at what is happening behind closed doors of Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills.
Halloween is a time when movie goers seek to be entertained by films of horror and witchcraft. Yet, the true horror and evil is taking place everyday in abortion clinics across our land.

It’s not too late for America, unless we continue to vote those in office who advocate the slaughter of innocent human life even when they survive an abortion by a butcher’s hand.
A doctor is one who makes an oath to preserve and protect life not destroy it. Legal abortion or illegal abortion is still murder.

We use to be a nation who protected the innocent, however , there are legislators who will do whatever they have to do in order to maintain their power, while depending on the votes of felons, criminals, the ignorant and even illegal immigrants.

“Do whatever you have to do to be elected, baby”, said Nancy Pelosi. And that is exactly what the liberals are doing with no moral compass but with their philosophy remains steadfast – “The end justifies the means.”. Therefore, lying,  harassing, and slandering who oppose their view which threatens their power,  will always be the means they will use.

You are being called to God’s voice for the innocent by praying and voting during these midterm elections to shift the House and the Senate to a Republican Majority in order to protect our elected President and to place Judges with integrity back on our Supreme Court.
Speak up for the innocent by your vote and your prayers. Your freedom and the preservation of our nation depend on it.
About the movie, Gosnell
