GREAT TO SEE A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE SUPPORTING GOD’S COMMANDMENTS

PRO-LIFE ADVOCATES ATTEND THE ANNUAL MARCH FOR LIFE IN WASHINGTON ON JAN. 21, 2022

Nearly seven months since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade and returned the issue of abortion to the individual state legislatures, tens of thousands of anti-abortion activists will descend on Washington, D.C., for the 50th annual March for Life on Jan. 21.

Since Roe‘s overturning, 24 states have banned abortion or are likely to do so, according to a January 2023 report by the Guttmacher Institute, a think tank that supports abortion rights. Legal challenges are pending in several of those states.

On Jan. 11, the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed a pair of symbolic anti-abortion bills that are not expected to be acted upon in the Democratic-controlled Senate. One of the bills, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, would require health care providers to care for infants born after an attempted abortion. A 2002 federal law already mandates that health care professionals provide medical care to infants born at any gestational age.

Mancini called the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act “commonsense and compassionate.”

In October, she also described as “sensible and compassionate” a bill that Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, sponsored to ban abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Other antiabortion leaders supported the legislation even though congressional Republicans distanced themselves from it.

Democrats seized upon Graham’s bill to portray the GOP as extremist on the issue, a strategy that seemed to resonate with voters. The Democrats increased their majority in the U.S. Senate while Republicans underperformed in securing the House with a slim majority.

Meanwhile, voters in Michigan, California and Vermont in November chose to enshrine abortion rights in their state constitutions. In Kentucky and Kansas, voters rejected constitutional amendments that would have said residents in those states had no right to an abortion.

“It seems to me we’re discovering that voters are generally in the middle” on abortion, said Mary Ziegler, a law professor at the University of California Davis School of Law who is a leading historian on the abortion debate in the United States. In the middle? Sadly, what our Creator says on the issue is no longer relevant and therefore not a consideration. It is another sure “end times” sign.

TIME TO BE COURAGEOUS AND SPEAK OUT AGAINST EVIL

Pastor John MacArthur of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, delivered a scathing open letter to California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) this week, accusing the leader of “rewarding evildoers and punishing the righteous.” More leaders need to be courageous and speak out as MacArthur did regardless of the outcome or cost.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom

The Sept. 29 missive, seemingly sparked by Newsom’s decision to place pro-abortion billboards in conservative states, takes aim, among other grievances, at the liberal governor’s use of the Bible on those placards.

As Faithwire recently reported, Newsom employed Jesus’ words in Mark 12:31, placing the following message on billboards advertising abortion in at least two states: “Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these.”

MacArthur took explicit aim at this action and called the governor’s use of Jesus’ words an “act of gross blasphemy.” He then summarized the campaign as sheer “wickedness.”

“In mid-September, you revealed to the entire nation how thoroughly rebellious against God you are when you sponsored billboards across America promoting the slaughter of children, whom He creates in the womb (Psalm 139:13–16; Isaiah 45:9–12),” MacArthur wrote. “You further compounded the wickedness of that murderous campaign with a reprehensible act of gross blasphemy, quoting the very words of Jesus from Mark 12:31 as if you could somehow twist His meaning and arrogate His name in favor of butchering unborn infants.”

And he wasn’t done there. Earlier in the letter, the popular preacher went on to cite the Prophet Isaiah’s warning against calling good evil and evil good, claiming many of Newsom’s policies reflect an “unholy, upside-down view of honor and morality.”

MacArthur said the “diabolical effects” of Newsom’s beliefs are being seen in crime, homelessness, and other cultural consequences in California.

The pastor wrote that his goal in penning the letter — rather than political posturing or arguing — was to “plead” with Newsom to listen to the Lord.

“My concern, Governor Newsom, is that your own soul lies in grave, eternal peril,” MacArthur wrote. “You will stand in the presence of the Holy God who created you, who is your Judge, and He will demand that you give an account for how you have flouted His authority in your governing, and how you have twisted His own Holy Word to rationalize it.”

MacArthur offered hope Newsom might come to know Christ and turn from the aforementioned actions and said he and others are praying for the governor’s “full repentance” and reliance on Christ.

MOST AMERICANS OPPOSE THE SUPREME COURT ABORTION DECISION

When asked if they supported the overturning of Roe, 56% of respondents said they didn’t approve of the decision, while 40% expressed support for the ruling. Specifically, 28% of those surveyed “strongly support” it, and 45% “strongly oppose” it.

The 45% “strongly oppose” it compared to the 28% that “strongly support” it should be concerning to most Christians because it is indicative of the fact that the USA has turned away from God and will come under increasing judgement.

Moreover, the Supreme Court’s decision will affect the outcome of the midterm elections. Biden’s pathetic performance on many fundamental issues such as the economy, power generation, fuel prices, and border protection should have caused many traditional Democrat voters to vote Republican but the poll indicates that the Supreme Court decision will solidify the support of Democrat voters to stay the course because of a godless ideology.

Like the Marist poll, the YouGov survey showed that more Democrats believe the abortion decision will play a role in their vote in the 2022 elections. Thirty-three percent of Democrats asserted that Dobbs will influence their vote in November “a great deal” and an additional 19% predicted that the overturning of Roe will have “a great deal” of impact on their vote. By contrast, only 18% of Republicans foresaw the decision having “a great deal” of impact on their vote.

The speed with which we are seeing end-times prophecies play out hopefully will prompt Christians to focus more on living eternal now knowing Jesus’ return is near.

The Bible is full of fulfilled prophecies which are a testimony of its divine inspiration and inerrancy. It is estimated that as much as 75% of the 2,500 prophesies in the Bible have already been fulfilled and most of those yet to be fulfilled are last days/end-times events.

How many churches today are preparing their congregations for Jesus second coming? Do you realise that there are far more prophecies about Jesus’ second coming that His first? The Pharisees and Sadducees did not get it with Jesus’ first coming and the church is not getting it with His second coming.

PRO ABORTION DEMONSTRATORS

Senator James Lankford states the truth about the obvious: “Do you find it odd that in federal law we protect an eagle egg acknowledging that’s an eagle inside that egg, and we protect a turtle egg saying we acknowledge that’s a turtle inside that egg, but we allow the destruction of children?”

Trump’s greatest achievement: the conservative-dominated Supreme Court on Friday overturned the landmark 1973 “Roe v. Wade” decision enshrining a woman’s right to an abortion.

Abortion rights activists in Portland, Oregon protest after the US Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade, overturning the right to abortion.

As a result, abortion rights defenders fanned out across America Saturday (local time) for the second day of protest against the Supreme Court’s thunderbolt decision. After protests went late into the night, several hundreds of people thronged the streets outside the fenced-off Supreme Court again Saturday, in hot summer weather, carrying signs that read “War on women, who’s next?” and “No uterus, No opinion,” and “Is it too late to abort Amey Coney Barrett“, What happened yesterday is indescribable and disgusting,” said Mia Stagner, 19, a political science major in college. “Being forced to be a mother is not something any woman should have to do.”

Twin demonstrations were also getting underway in Los Angeles — one headed to city hall and the other to the federal courthouse — with dozens of smaller rallies planned from coast to coast.

President Joe Biden — who has likewise voiced concerns the court might not stop at abortion — spoke out again Saturday against the court’s “shocking decision.”

“I know how painful and devastating the decision is for so many Americans,” said the president, who has urged Congress to restore abortion protections as federal law, and vowed the issue would be on the ballot in November’s midterm elections.

The fact that abortion is an abomination to our Creator is of no consequence to the President and now the majority of Americans. Persecution of Christians who hold to all of God’s values will only increase as a result. The persecution already being leveled against the five Supreme Court judges that voted to overturn Roe v Wade is evidence enough. What is happening is exactly what Jesus told us would happen in the “end times” prior to His return.

REAL SIGNIFICANCE OF YOUR ABORTION POSITION

This is an important video to truly understand spiritual warfare and how demons work and how their efforts can be effectively thwarted. Randy has been at the frontline of spiritual warfare in his efforts to support Pro-life outside of Abortion Clinics. Some of the stories including a courtroom drama clearly demonstrate that these people including a judge are Satanically inspired.

Randy has been faithful in defending unborn children for many years and it is obvious that God has been equally faithful in supporting Randy and his family.

Take the time to watch this video to the end as there as some great family stories at the end. You will be blessed if you do.

WORLD’S LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH

Over 42.6M abortions conducted in 2020, surpassing world’s leading causes of death. The number of pregnancies terminated worldwide in 2020 is greater than the total number of people that succumbed to all other leading causes of death listed.

This is according to data compiled by the Worldometer, a reference website that monitors statistics on health, the global population, the use of resources and deaths in real-time. 

The website tabulates statistics on abortion made available from the World Health Organization. The last available snapshot of the Worldometer as it appeared on New Year’s Eve, captured by the internet archive tool The Wayback Machine, reveals that more than 42.6 million abortions were performed worldwide in 2020.

By comparison, communicable diseases killed more than 13 million people worldwide in 2020. About 8.2 million people worldwide lost their lives to cancer while nearly 5.1 million people and 2.5 million people succumbed to death as a result of smoking and alcohol, respectively. According to John Hopkins University, more than 1.8 million people worldwide died of coronavirus in 2020. Other leading causes of death in 2020 included road traffic accident fatalities, of which there were nearly 1.4 million. Additionally, suicides are responsible for nearly 1.1 million deaths across the globe. 

These statistics are ample evidence we live in a world that has largely rejected the God of the Bible. The creator God who loves them so much, He sent His Son Jesus to earth to pay the price for their sin of rebellion – Jesus death on a Cross. They are totally oblivious to the fact Jesus will return to earth exactly as prophesied to rescue believers but also to pour out His wrath on a rebellious world.

And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Luke 23:34
The only good news, more people participated in the 2020 March for Life rally in Washington, D.C. than in 2019

Lutheran, Episcopal and United Church of Christ Clergy: “We Stand With Planned Parenthood” Abortion Biz

A group of female clergy from Iowa wrote a letter this week to publicly state their support of the abortion chain Planned Parenthood. Surely, this is another indicator we are in the “last days”. A great falling away by the church is prophesied, and we are seeing it happening at an exponential rate. They are preaching a doctrine of demons.

The letter, published in the Des Moines Register on Wednesday, included signatures from seven women pastors from the United Church of Christ, United Methodist Church, Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, Episcopal Church, Unitarian Universalist Association, Christian Church (Disciple of Christ) and Unity Church. A note included with the letter said the pastors were not speaking on behalf of their denominations or congregations.

The pastors praised Planned Parenthood’s work and blasted a state bill that would defund the abortion group and redirect tax dollars to community health centres that don’t provide abortions.

“As clergy and as women, we oppose any action by the Iowa Legislature to restrict a woman’s ability to make her own health care and reproductive decisions or to access health care services,” they wrote. “Additionally, we support Planned Parenthood of the Heartland and the excellent care it provides for any woman who chooses its health care services.”

These women pastors would be aware that Planned Parenthood admitted to making money from selling the body parts of aborted children. Therefore, we have seven women pastors of mainline denominations who obviously have no concern for God’s laws, nor believe His Word, nor fear Him.

I am more convinced than ever that Born Again Christians cannot stay in any denominational church that appoints and supports pastors that do not take a stand on the inerrancy of Scripture. Where does your church stand on Key issues such as creation versus evolution and therefore the authority of Genesis 1-11.  This is where the foundations are laid for the important doctrines of the Church: The Fall, Sin, Marriage, Judgement of the World at The Flood of Noah, formation of the Nations through confusion of languages at Babel, and finally God established His Nation, Israel.

In February, the Iowa Senate passed Senate File 2 to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups in the state. The legislation would direct taxpayer funding to federally qualified health centres that provide more comprehensive health care but not abortions. The bill currently is being considered in the state House.

In their letter, the pastors described the bill as “dangerous” and “extreme” legislation that “threatens access to basic health care for low-income women.”

They also claimed that legislators’ opposition to abortion is purely religious. They wrote:

All arguments against a woman’s reproductive choices are based in morality and religious beliefs, using those religious beliefs to change the law and infringe upon the rights of women. Through our faiths, we are joining together to balance those arguments and to assure legislators that the religious community does not speak with one voice.

We are deeply committed to social justice, which includes caring for the poor and oppressed. Defunding and shutting down Planned Parenthood would hurt those struggling to get by and those who already face many barriers in accessing health care.

As clergy and as women, we know that women are well equipped to make their own health care decisions. We also believe that this bill is a matter of legislating inequality and will deny low-income women access to quality family planning services.

Their letter makes a number of assumptions that are not true, one being that the pro-life position is entirely a religious one. While Christians make up a large part of the movement, there also are quite a few secular pro-lifers.

Also, no mention is made of the rights of the child who by God is considered a person from conception.

Data also does not back up their claim that women will lose access to health care if Planned Parenthood is defunded.

As previously reported, supporters of Senate File 2 contend that Iowa “women will have access to 221 clinics statewide that will expand coverage to rural women who must now make long drives to urban areas for family planning services.”

Women can find much more comprehensive health care at community health clinics. The non-abortion services that Planned Parenthood provides are very limited. For example, Planned Parenthoods do not provide mammograms and very few provide prenatal care; and those that provide ultrasounds appear to do so only for abortion purposes.

Data from the abortion group’s own reports show a growing focus on abortions and a continuous decrease in its non-abortion services. From 2009 to 2014, “cancer screenings” dropped from 1,830,811 to just 682,208. “Breast exams/breast care” fell by more than half, from 830,312 in 2009 to 363,803 in 2014 and Pap smear tests dropped nearly two-thirds, from 904,820 to 271,539. In that same time period, Planned Parenthood’s abortion numbers remained steady, hovering around 320,000 per year.

Iowa is one of a number of states that are moving to defund the abortion group.

Last week, Republicans in U.S. Congress released the American Health Care Act. Their plan to repeal Obamacare includes provisions that would revoke funding for Planned Parenthood. A provision in the bill prohibits states from using “direct spending” on “prohibited entities” with federal funds allocated from the legislation; and those entities include any entity that “provides for abortions.” That means the nation’s biggest abortion corporation — Planned Parenthood.

President Donald Trump recently offered Planned Parenthood a deal that would have allowed it to keep receiving tax money if it stopped doing abortions. Planned Parenthood refused.
