When we repent of sin, God forgives us. If you have had an abortion, Jesus is waiting to take you into his arms in forgiveness and love.

Ky. Senate Approves Bill Requiring Ultrasounds, In-Person Consultations Before Abortions

Ky. Senate Approves Bill Requiring Ultrasounds, In-Person Consultations Before Abortions

Message to Pastors II

 This morning, again, the Lord is moving on my heart to speak to pastors about this burden I carry: we need to cry out from the pulpits "life"! God grants us all life. No matter what the quality, it is God given and therefore sacred. We need to speak about this in our private conversations and when in the pulpit we can word our messages well, so as not to upset young children. But guess what? I am saying things in front of and to my children that I never would have years ago. Why? Because they're hearing it elsewhere and they need to be informed. Yes, they need to know, parents really do kill their babies. The thought is horrific, but it's true.
  I remember the first time I ever heard the word abortion and the impact it had on me. I was twelve years old and in my cousin's bedroom. She went to a Catholic School and the sisters at her school had given her an 8 1/2" by 11" black and white poster on the subject and it was hanging on her bedroom wall. She explained it and I was astounded and troubled. How could anyone do such a thing, I wondered?
  The subject left my mind and surfaced later when I heard stories in high school - you know the ones; so and so had an abortion and another one needed money from her boyfriend who had never paid her for hers....
  The language was cold and not compassionate. The word "abortion" had somehow become the  subject of a whispered business transaction between girlfriends and boyfriends. They weren't married yet, and this tragedy had become their first major economic focus in what should have been a loving relationship. Of course, none of these relationships, that I saw, lasted. They had been darkened by death. I remember being silently dismayed.
  Life twists and turns and now I have four beautiful children and a grandchild for which I am thankful. I have changed and have become more vocal in my beliefs, with the Lord's help.
  Pastors, let me encourage you to tackle this major and sometimes volatile issue. Remember your Father loves you and will not let you fail when you are doing His work.
  Jeremiah 1:8 "Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD."

1 Chronicles 28:20 "And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the LORD God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD."

Message to Pastors I

  Weighing heavily upon my heart this morning is the power that pastors hold in the arena of the abortion issue. A pastor's word is held in high regard by many and so the pastor's importance in the area of "life concerns" can not be overstated.
  Many pastors today believe that abortion is a political issue or are even of the opinion that it is a "woman's choice" and are either fearful of upsetting a congregation or have actually bought into the lie that an unborn baby is just a blob of tissue. Many, many verses in the Bible tell us that the Lord is our Creator and forms us in our mother's wombs. There is a reason for every being that our Creator makes. He would never make a senseless "blob of tissue". Every life has a purpose, even if we don't understand what that purpose is.
  Pastors, please consider the following verse from Luke 1:15 which speaks of John the Baptist:

“For he will be great in the sight of the Lord; and he will drink no wine or liquor, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit while yet in his mother’s womb" 

  We can not predict when and where the Holy Spirit of our Lord may move.

John3: 8 "The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit."
  
  And finally I would like to add a verse which clearly shows that we human beings, unlike animals, which only have body and soul, are composed of body, soul and spirit.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 "And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."
   
  Just when does the soul and spirit join with the body? If the Lord filled John with His Holy Spirit even before his birth, and we know that man already has a spirit before being indwelt with the Holy Spirit, and there is no valid reason to think otherwise, then we can assume that God creates all three from the beginning. Our triune God (God the father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit) created us in His image ("Our image" as you read here, refers to His triune nature)

Genesis 1:26 "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."
  We are created in His triune image.
  Pastors, you know that we can not predict anything at all about God except for His great love and mercy. If we try to predict that valid life begins at any certain day and time other than the moment of conception, then we are trying to be like God.
  I am praying for a peaceful solution and an end to the chaos and nonsense that revolves around the central, important issue of Life.

Talk To Washington

The National Right to Life Committee (can be accessed at www.nrlactioncenter.com) recommends contacting your state representatives immediately to inform them of your stand on the National Health Care Reform issue. There are many problems with the proposed plan and I am focusing on just one. My fear is that if we allow federal monies to fund abortions, the value of human life will be more cheapened than it already is in this nation. I have used the "simple-to-use" form to write my state representatives that is provided on their website. Won't you do the same? Make a difference. Call the main Capital Switchboard and voice your opinions to your representatives at 202-224-3121 and/or write them. It is imperative.

God's Promises are Answered in BIRTH and Love -The Promise is in the Seed #1

Genesis 12:1-3 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee: (2) And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: (3) And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
 This is what is overlooked in the Christian circles which actively promote abortion. ALL of God's promises are answered in BIRTH. I'm crying simple tears as I write this. The answer to the abortion question is simple. It's in the Bible in Black and White. The Promise is in the seed. The promises are in the seed. Jesus is promised to us from cover to cover in God's book. He is The Promise. He is our only Hope.
 Stay tuned.....more to come on how all of the families of the earth are blessed through the promise the LORD gave to Abraham.

Pro-Abortion Healthcare Bill News

Just an update on the Healthcare Bill issue. If you haven't been reading the news, 13 State Attorney Generals are challenging the constitutionality of forcing Americans to purchase this insurance. There is also strong resentment that Senator Ben Nelson accepted a large amount of money for his state, Nebraska, in exchange for his passing vote on Dec. 24 as our land was swept up into a Christmas Eve fiasco. Our nation's representatives voted to pass a bill which would eventually authorize federal funds to pay for abortions on the night in which we lovingly honored the birth of the King of kings, our Savior, Jesus.

Tim TeBow, miracle baby

MOTHER OF HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER TIM TEBOW REJECTED DOCTOR'S ADVICE TO ABORT HIM.
University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow won U.S. college football's highest honour 10Dec07. If his mother had followed her doctor's advice when she was carrying him, he would be just another abortion statistic.

Tim's parents, Bob and Pam Tebow, moved to the Philippines in 1985 to conduct a Christian missionary outreach. While pregnant with Tim, Pam contracted amoebic dysentery through contaminated drinking water. Her doctor told her that the medications she needed to recover would result in irreversible damage to the child she was carrying. She was advised to have an abortion.

She refused.

Tim was born healthy and robust in 1987. His mother described him as "skinny, but rather long." Today he stands six-foot-three, weighs 235 pounds, and has been described as a physical and athletic phenomenon.

Tim was fortunate to be born into a family that has strong roots...and a deep understanding of the precious gift that each life is not only to them, but also to the world.

The untold numbers of children saved from abortion, or even surviving abortion, that have brought their talents, skills, and contribution to the world, like Tim Tebow, are a resounding testament to pro-life work.

Planned Parenthood - Call It like It Is

  The bottom line with Planned Parenthood today is an economic one. Abortion clinics are reported to be closing and this has PP squirming to get more action. They are advocating for this new Obama Health-care plan, in the works and yet to be fully decided upon, to use government money to fund abortions (even if the language appears to be contrary!). They are hyper sensitive to criticisms of their real aims and actions. They are squirreling away any tool they can find to aggressively campaign against unborn baby's lives. Their agenda is slick, seemingly caring about women. They call abortion a health-care issue. Since when did health care involve killing? It's abortion, killing of life, plain and simple. The old saying goes, "If it walks like a duck and it talks like a duck, it's a duck!"
   Planned Parenthood, call abortion what it is -Terminating... extinguishing... Killing a life.
   Call a "fetus" what it is - Latin for "unborn baby".


More about Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood and the KKK

"Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan...As someone came out of the hall I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses. I waited another twenty minutes. It was warmer and I did not mind so much. Eventually the lights were switched on, the audience seated itself, and I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak...In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered." (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, Book by Margaret Sanger; W. W. Norton, 1938, P.366)

No need to really comment here, I'm just wondering Where was this woman's mind?!




Margaret Sanger - Founder of Pl. Parenthood and her motives

"As an advocate of birth control I wish ... to point out that the unbalance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the 'fit,' admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes. In this matter, the example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feeble-minded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken classes, should not be held up for emulation....
On the contrary, the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.
"
Margaret Sanger. "The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda." Birth Control Review, October 1921, page 5.


"Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying ... demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism ... [Philanthropists] encourage the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant ... We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all."
Margaret Sanger. The Pivot of Civilization, 1922. Chapter on "The Cruelty of Charity," pages 116, 122, and 189. Swarthmore College Library edition.

Eugenics, Hitler and Planned Parenthood

"During World War II the Nazis used sterilizations and abortions (also birth control and even the promotion of homosexuality) extensively in eastern Europe to carry out their eugenics policies. The specific aim was to keep eastern females available for slave labor while at the same time weakening eastern nations by hampering the reproduction of Slavic peoples."  by John Hunt, Ph.D. the
Association for Interdisciplinary Research in Values and Social Change
Vol 16, no. 1, 2001
  (Hunt cited, for his references for this statement -Trials of War Criminals before the Nuremberg Military Tribunals, October. 1946-April. 1949. Vols. IV-V, "The RuSHA Case" (Washington, D.C., U.S Government Printing Office, 1949), IV, 685-86 V, 95-96. Cited here- after as TWC. This is the published account of the trial, representing about 15% of the testimony.)

I have been studying much on the policies of Nazi Germany and Hitler. I have also looked into the policies and motivations behind the starting of Planned Parenthood, America's number 1 abortion supporter. Both Hitler and Margaret Sanger, the woman who started Planned parenthood, were students of Eugenics although Margaret Sanger's promotion of Eugenics ( planned breeding of humans with supposedly altruistic expectations) was one step off of Hitler's. Anyone slightly informed on the Second World War knows that Hitler wanted to produce one "Master Race." Sanger believed in selective breeding, that those unfit to be mothers should be forced into sterilization and not allowed to have children and while she often used the word "race", in context it seems as though she meant the human race and not one particular race. From what I have read, she purposed to promote breeding of only those who could afford to have children and of a fitter, healthier and more intelligent stock than those who had been "breeding". In the Pivot of Civilization, (Project Gutenberg e-book released 2006-02-22, first copyrighted in 1922) she wrote about "the great biological problems of defect, delinquency and bad breeding."and she wrote of her "vision of a world regenerated". (both on page 112). She really thought that things could be improved, as far as humans are concerned, and some of her arguments seem convincing such as the need to be able to afford the children that you have. From some of her writings, it's clear that she knew something about Jesus and called Him the Great Teacher. However it's also clear that she had no understanding that He is our only Savior. Her ideas of population control were very frightening. Who would determine who was fit to have a child or not? She didn't understand the need for a Savior and she certainly didn't look up to God. Both Sanger and Hitler thought they had really good motives to control birth. Both Sanger and Hitler attempted to play God.









The Valley of Slaughter

I know my title selection does not sound very nice. Can you guess where I got these words? Not from a new horror movie. The Lord spoke these words in the Bible. Jeremiah 19:6 speaks of "the valley of slaughter". Jeremiah was told by God to warn His people of impending judgment. Why? Well, if we look at the earlier verses of 19 and even go back into ch. 18 we see that God's people were not living rightly before Him. They were going along with the rest of the world. They followed their neighbors instead of the one true God and began sacrificing their children in the valley of Hinnom; they began "to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal...". America needs to wake up! This once Christian country is sliding down a slippery slope to it's own destruction. I understand that abortion procedures involve chemically burning the young baby in the womb. (See Gianna Jensen's videos in a separate set of posts.) We are sacrificing babies in order to save money! That's the reason many give as a reason to end their baby's life! Is this not idol worship? We're focusing on the dollar and not following God. America is sliding down the slippery slope to it's own destruction in "the valley of slaughter".
