It's Not Going To Be Easy...

After almost 30 years of effort, no one can rightly claim that the pro-life movement has not done everything humanely possible to make America’s clergy and politicians do the right thing.

But it is increasingly obvious ... our resolve is no match for their cowardice.

The fact is, the pro-life effort is going to succeed whether they are on board or not, and every ounce of energy we squander trying to get them to do the right thing is an ounce we don’t have for the battle against abortion.

...I want to predict that a time will come when every preacher, every priest, and every politician in America will be pushing and shoving to get to the front lines of the pro-life effort. I can even tell you when that seemingly unlikely event will occur.

On the day it becomes obvious to them that victory over the abortion holocaust is at hand, these guys will come running out from behind their mamma’s skirts, grinning from ear to ear, giving high fives to everyone they can get in front of and slapping every back in sight. Then, with their arms draped over our shoulders, they’ll start crowing about how they were with us all along.

Of course, in the spirit of the prodigal son, God will expect us to bite our tongues and accept them as our brothers and sisters in Christ.

I tell you all this now so you can start practicing in front of a mirror. It’s not going to be easy.

And Jonathan said to the young man that bare his armour,
'Come, and let us go over unto the garrison of these uncircumcised:
it may be that the LORD will work for us:
for there is no restraint to the LORD
to save by many or by few.'
1Samuel 14:6

... we are but few and feeble then to believe that God can not only save us, but save by us ...
Let this strengthen the weak and encourage the timid:
let it be pleaded with God for the enforcing of our petitions
and with ourselves for the silencing of our fears:
It is nothing with God to help, whether with many or with those that have no power, 2 Chr. 14:11.

Why Post Abortion Support is Unbiblical

A man tormented by the guilt of murder will be a fugitive till death; let no one support him. Proverbs 28:17

It is God, not us ourselves or our "feelings" which determines what is right and what is wrong.  God has not left us to decide about the morality of murdering an innocent person. It is no secret. There can be no doubt. God has declared in His commandments Thou Shall Not Murder. Murder an innocent person, which includes perhaps most especially the murder of pre-born children (who are of all people the MOST innocent and blameless), is NOT right, it is wrong. Always. Abortion is not simply a 'decision' or a 'choice' or a 'mistake,' killing a baby is a violent act of aggression. It is sin. All religions of the world forbid the shedding of innocent blood with the exception of one. Satanism. Satan requires the sacrifice of infants.

     The Bible makes it clear that God has been so kind as to place His holy law in the hearts of men and women. Rom 2:15 declares: "Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another ..." and Rom 1:20 explains: "For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse ..." Thus, we may conclude that mothers who murder their children by abortion are without excuse before God and men. Mothers hear the voice of their God-given conscience before and after they butcher their young. In fact, the word conscience means "with knowledge". Aborting women kill their babies with knowledge that it is wrong. Every woman who murders her child does so with keen intention and malice and forethought in a blatant and grievous violation of God's Law. God is gracious to warn those who murder innocent people what will become of them. They will NOT be allowed into heaven. A place is reserved for them in the lake of fire in hell with the devil. (See Rev. 21:8 & 22:15)
     Here at Sanctuary Ministries we believe that we have been commissioned by Christ to provide a holy witness to abortion-bound women and their children. We take His charge very seriously. God has given us the option to seek Him as to whether we must continue to engage the murdering woman who has already slain her innocent baby. (Although we recognize that at least half of the aborting women we counsel have already killed one or more children.) God also prescribes for us the manner in which we are to engage the murderer. One of the very clearest biblical mandates for how to treat a murderer is Proverbs 28:17 (at the top of the page) in which the Word of God expresses the recommendation that no one should support a person who is guilty of murder. In a powerful commentary on this passage of Scripture the respected Bible expositor Matthew Henry explains:

"The murderer shall be haunted with terrors. None shall desire to save him from deserved punishment, nor pity him."

Henry also notes:

"What continual frights those are subject to that go on in wicked ways. Guilt in the conscience makes men a terror to themselves, so that they are ready to flee when none pursues; like one that absconds for debt, who thinks every one he meets a bailiff. Though they pretend to be easy, there are secret fears which haunt them wherever they go, so that they fear where no present or imminent danger is, Ps. 53:5.

Those that have made God their enemy, and know it, cannot but see the whole creation at war with them, and therefore can have no true enjoyment of themselves, no confidence, no courage, but a fearful looking for of judgment. Sin makes men cowards."

 In Proverbs 28:17 we are clearly instructed NOT TO SUPPORT the murdering mother, who is only a fugitive from justice in this life, for she will pay dearly for her sin in the life and death to come. God desires that we allow the God-given conscience (and in the case of murdering mothers, the maternal instinct, which is also a divine and holy gift of His grace) to do its work of reproving of sin and accusing the woman who kills of her mean offense toward God and her little one. As Christians we are often strangely tempted to pity the woman who has murdered her son or daughter. I use the word tempted purposely and particularly because I believe that it is the diabolical temptation of the forces of darkness that oppose God, namely the world, the flesh & the devil, which teach and condition us to comfort the mother who kills. This patronizing post-abortion support can and often does result in our consoling and comforting the murderer (typical humanistic therapeutic response) rather than agreeing with God and the voice of her conscience and warning her to flee from her sin and the wrath to come by calling her to genuine biblical repentance and a life of holiness unto God. Warning an abortive woman, before and after the murder of her child (or children) is the biblical response. According to II Chronicles 19:10 many passages in Ezekiel 3: 33, God WARNS US that if we FAIL to warn the murdering mother, we are guilty of the blood of that woman and her child OURSELVES. I feel that this is so important and essential to communicate because God will judge us according to how well we obey His commands. The blood of those who are perishing will be on our hands if we FAIL in our duty to warn. We must not be derelict. We must not disobey. We must not commiserate the murdering mothers. We must warn them.

     It is helpful to remember that the mother's sin of murdering her baby is never abiding alone in the child-killer. The woman who plans and executes her baby is usually (but not always) involved in the habitual sin of fornication, and sexual immorality is a very serious transgression of the Law. No fornicator shall inherit the kingdom of heaven! Many abortive women are adulterers as well. Add to that the use of drugs, lying, stealing, dishonoring parents, cursing the Lord, etc, she is a worker of iniquity, a lawbreaker. LOST and hell-bent on pursuing her own pleasure with little or no thoughts for others or for God. Women who murder their babies are self-seeking, self-gratifying and self-indulgent. They are sinners through and through. [It is interesting to note that the same is true of those who work in the abortion killing business, but there doesn't appear to be as much sympathy for them in the Christian community.] It seems obvious to Christians (and even to society) that one shouldn't console or comfort a person who does crack or molests children. We understand that it is good and right and healthy for shame to be associated with and attached to the perpetrator. Indeed, in violation of the law, citizens who are uncovered as having been involved in these activities would be arrested and charged with a crime. All would agree that it is just for them and good for the community if they are penalized and required to "do their time".

     God speaks to us through the light of His Law. When well-meaning Christians support women who have murdered their babies, they are fulfilling the old adage "killing them with kindness". I am afraid that it is true in this case that "the road to hell is paved with good intentions". It is more than mere folly to palliate or extenuate the sin of murdering an innocent child by offering the murdering mother such commonly heard platitudes as: "You did what you thought was right" "You did the best you knew under the circumstances and the pressures you were under" "Don't blame yourself" "We know you are grieving." "You are already forgiven" "I love you" and even "Jesus loves you." When I hear those things come from the lips of Christians and extended to women who have murdered their precious, voiceless, helpless infant, I literally shudder. It is so near to excusing and even justifying the sin of child-murder that I fear for these hapless Christians. Words like that dismiss and dishonor the humanity of the child who suffered and died, and they dishonor and, even more importantly, they misrepresent God. In his commentary on Pro 28:4, which teaches: "They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them" our friend and brother Matthew Henry notes:
Those that praise the wicked make it to appear that they do themselves forsake the law, and go contrary to it, for that curses and condemns the wicked. Wicked people will speak well of one another, and so strengthen each others hands in their wicked ways, hoping thereby to silence the clamour of their own consciences and to serve the interests of the devil's kingdom, which is not done by any thing so effectually as by keeping vice in reputation. 2. Those that do indeed make conscience of the law of God themselves will, in their places, vigorously oppose sin, and bear their testimony against it, and do what they can to shame and suppress it. They will reprove the works of darkness, and silence the excuses which are made for those works, and do what they can to bring gross offenders to punishment, that others may hear and fear.

     Most women who murder their babies quickly go on to do what most unrepentant sinners do, they recommend child-murder to other mothers! This evil behavior is perfectly described by God in Romans 1:32: "Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." Willful rebellion and lawlessness will lead to the invocation of more wrath being stored up for her in the day of judgment and lead to a further hardening of the heart and the conscience. But by the behavior of Christians one would think that the murdering mother has somehow earned MORE pity from God instead of greater punishment. In addition, it appears that Christians think that somehow these murderers will be a exception to the biblical description of the result of sin and rather than go on to become more callous to murder that they will be extremely sensitive to the wrongdoing of murder. According to God, that thinking is BACKWARDS. Sin has the opposite affect on the one who sins than Christians who pity women who murder seem to think. Murdering a baby makes many women HARDER toward their future children and the children of others. It also makes them more casual about other kinds of sin.

     There is something called holy caution and it's benefits are great. It is our privilege and honor to WARN women who murder their infants so that they might FEAR the Lord and experience the beginning of wisdom. While one would be "tempted" (there's that word again) to believe that you can make a murderous mother "happy" by consoling her, it is, in fact, the opposite. Henry observes: "Happy is the man who always keeps up in his mind a holy awe and reverence of God, his glory, goodness, and government, who is always afraid of offending God and incurring his displeasure, who keeps conscience tender and has a dread of the appearance of evil ..." The truth is, God is not concerned that we are happy or that murdering mothers are happy. He wants to make us HOLY! When Christians placate women who murder their children by verbally "hugging" them, they are actually doing the opposite of what they intend. They add to the danger of the woman's soul by helping her to build an altar to HERSELF, which is one of sinful presumption. This can and often does serve to harden her heart, mock her just fear of God and defy the judgment of God. This presumption will be her ruin. After these well-meaning Christians (not to mention their unbelieving friends and family) have lavished the murdering mother with pity and consolation, many of these women will experience a self-satisfying contentment that " all is well" and even more than well, for all the attention they are getting. I have even met women who bought themselves gifts of consolation and reward (jewelry, massages, a new outfit) to remember the "difficulties" of the experience of murdering their babies. "Be good to yourself", they hear from Christians and tell themselves and one another. "After all, you've been through so much. Pamper yourself. You deserve it after such an ordeal!" To illustrate this phenomenon to the extreme some women who murder their babies are even purchasing "abortion dolls". These are little miniature likenesses to babies at different stages of gestation. Both women who are planning the murder of their babies AND women who have already murdered their child by abortion are buying a doll that matches the gestation of their own victims to have a memento of their experience of slaughtering. They enshrine the experience of murdering their baby! In fact, you will have no trouble finding voices of post-abortive women who call killing an infant a "woman's sacrament". Indeed the devil would agree. Abortion is a sacrament of Satan.

     What is the biblical, holy response to the women who murder their babies? Do not pity the murderer. Do not offer her condolences. She hired an assassin to shed the innocent blood of her child, for heaven's sake! She violated her God-given conscience, which spoke the holy Law to her. If God brought Christians into her path to reach out to help her and give her holy counsel BEFORE she murdered her baby, she is DOUBLY guilty. And do not forget ADOPTION! Randy Alcorn wisely noted that "There is no such thing as an unwanted child. Only unwanting adults." The murdered child is a wanted child. Every single woman who plans and executes her son or daughter REFUSED to allow any of the thousands of couples who wanted her baby to become his loving, forever parents.

What the murdering mom did was indefensible and she is without excuse.

Proverbs 28:17 warns us NOT to comfort, aid or abet the murdering mother. Matthew Henry explains:
This agrees with that ancient law, Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed (Gen. 9:6), and proclaims, 1. The doom of the shedder of blood. He that has committed murder, though he flees for his life, shall be continually haunted with terrors, shall himself flee to the pit, betray himself, and torment himself, like Cain, who, when he had killed his brother, became a fugitive and a vagabond, and trembled continually. 2. The duty of the avenger of blood, whether the magistrate or the next of kin, or whoever are concerned in making inquisition for blood, let them be close and vigorous in the prosecution, and let it not be bought off. Those that acquit the murderer, or do any thing to help him off, come in sharers in the guilt of blood; nor can the land be purged from blood but by the blood of him that shed it, Num. 35:33.

     But, you say " What if the woman 'feels sorry'? What if she is 'feeling guilty'? My friends, the mother who has murdered her infant SHOULD feel sorry! Do not rush to relieve her! Like all murderers, the woman who has hacked her own son or daughter to death or had him pulled whole or delivered alive into a toilet IS GUILTY, so she SHOULD feel guilty because she IS GUILTY! Her guilt is legitimate and healthy! Please, do not make the mistake of presuming that because she is feeling "sorry" that the murdering mother is genuinely repentant. The Bible describes a counterfeit repentance. There is a sorrow that is worldly (self-pity) which leads to death which II Corinthians 7:10 speaks of: "For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death." In my first-hand observations of thousands of aborting and post-abortive women each year for over 14 years, "worldly sorrow" affects as many as half of the women who kill their babies to at least some degree. (The rest of the women are "glad" and even "exhilirated" and feel "empowered" by the murder of their infant.) The ones who feel "sorry" usually only express this in a temporary and self-serving way. This is made plain and obvious and proven by the fact that studies of post abortive women (from several years ago) revealed that half the women who kill one child by abortion go on to kill other children. [Note: By my own personal face-to-face inquiries of aborting women I believe that far more than half kill again and that more women are having multiple abortions in America now than any other time in history. We may yet catch up to the Russian women who murder their babies more than any other mothers in the world.] I cannot help but wonder ... How long will the Christian community and post-abortion ministries continue saying the same inane secular humanistic therapeutic things to aborting women and still expect different results?

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 1:7 (see also Ps 111:10, Pr. 9:10)

     How long will we be fools ourselves and bring foolishness instead of fear to the women who kill their babies? We must forsake our rebellion and do what God requires! Warn murdering mothers!
Women who murder their babies certainly need to hear the biblical gospel, and be warned to " Repent or perish ". May you hear His voice clearly and respond in obedience, experiencing the fear of the Lord and harkening to the strict instructions of God in reaching those murdering mothers are perishing while it is still day. May you and thousands of those you engage with the gospel live to praise Him with their lips and their life both now and forevermore.
Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust. Psalm 40:4

True and False Repentance by Charles G. Finney

Thursday, September 14, 2006


By Fr. Francis G. McCloskeyAugust 12, 2003NewsWithViews.com
Are we at best culturally irrelevant, at worst half-pagan? Your silent pulpit was part of the mix in which the church succumbed with hardly a whimper as Hollywood, Madison Avenue, wealthy foundations and ACLU judges arbitrarily switched rules of right and wrong, corrupted public information pools, lobotomized university faculties, and cajoled mainline denominations into if you can't beat 'em join 'em. It took 100 years for the Nietzchean transvaluation to declare victory. The one obstacle neither he nor his followers could negotiate -- the Christian Church -- did not collapse until this generation. A shroud of blindness fell upon the denominations. The pulpits went silent. The Pilgrims have been betrayed.
Therefore after Planned Parenthood murders children and grandchildren in the neighborhood, like an insatiable monster it then pursues survivor children into the neighborhood schools to corrupt them. This takes place under the corporate nose of silent clergy and counter-evangelized parents. No wonder home-school is a preferred option among Godly parents when godless sex educators (sic) enter classrooms. With the sweet reasonableness of planned deception they impart to children tendentious teachings which violate their religious faith and civic inheritance. Say what you will about previous generations of clergy, this is one area where they would not have failed and did not fail. They would have put the fear of God into the PP sexmongers and anyone else who would dare to corrupt the children. The same cannot be said for us. But then previous clergy were not beguiled by television.
Classroom sexmongering is an evil attack on the innocence of our children. Anti-God, anti-church, anti-parent, it is the New Testament monster-killer of the Christ child (Rev 12:4). If they fail to butcher Him in the womb they leave no stone unturned to corrupt His innocence. Planned Parenthood has a frenzied hatred of innocence.
Church bureaucrats who should have known better found themselves intimidated by the ACLU's relentless but bold pursuit of a godless society. It is time for Christians to wake up to the damage done by these bureaucrats who have even been known to connive in the defeat of the Gospel through political ideologies and liaisons. It is time for pastors in the field to abandon bingo, bazaars, raffles, suppers and feel-good preaching (See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Denounce No Evil) and savor the unmitigated and unadulterated gospel of Jesus Christ.
It is time to confess that we preachers allowed ourselves to become spiritually neutered by the PP media mantras such as "unwanted pregnancy", a repugnant phrase designed to legalize child-killing. Confess openly that we were beaten and beaten with televised sex until we just gave up. Our pulpits, once bulwarks of truth, became strangely silent.
Enter a new order of Christian preacher beginning with self.
Resolved: I am going to give up my comfort zone in the face of pogroms, holocausts, blood purges and massive abortion violence! I shall risk everything to grasp Truth as the prize! I will risk rejection and persecution. I am going to try to save the next mother and child. Then I am going to ascend the pulpit and tell my congregation what I did. And to expect more of it.
Preaching must lovingly counter lies with truth. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness but rather expose them...for everything exposed by the light becomes visible... (Ephesians 5:11,13). According to Jeremiah, church folk can and do use "deceptive words" to mix paganism into the Temple worship. "Do not trust in deceptive words and say: this is the Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord" (Jer 7:4). He is exposing the enemy's strategy of small compromises each of which sets up the next compromise. Many denominations fell into this trap and are now indistinguishable from surrounding paganism. God's enemies may openly desecrate the Temple but church worshippers do it via life-styles unchallenged by biblical preaching.
Be among the first to know: a new barbarian invasion is on. Secular historians tell you that the old invasions were caused by tribal expansion, quest for booty and assorted bloodthirsts. The true reason known in the heavenlies was that they were part of the eternal warfare to stamp out the Christian faith. Before Viking marauder Thorgestr (Agent of Thor) burned down the Irish monastery at Clonmacnoise in 844, his wife Ota pronounced pagan oracles from the high altar. At the Jacobin reign of terror following the French revolution, a prostitute was enthroned as goddess of Reason in Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris. The war against the Faith goes on forever and the weapons keep getting more sophisticated. Television is the new Trojan horse. Welcome it into your home so that later it can corrupt your entire pattern of thinking and subjugate your children. Politicize and corrupt whole school systems and place the children at the mercy of the godless.
The ancient barbarians had to travel over land and sea which took months and years. They ended up becoming Christian because they settled among Christians who had fought to keep them out of their homes, farms, towns and villages and away from the children. Today the barbarians arrive unmolested into the home in the twinkling of an eye.
If there is to be a desecration of the Temple, better a barbarian invasion by outsiders than an inside subterfuge masquerading as tolerance. Evil comes sub specie boni as an angel of light. Today's torch-wielding angels of light are found in church bureaucracies undoing the marturion and desecrating the memories of the saints who have gone on before us, causing faithful Christians to wonder if the time of biblical apostasy has come. (Matt 24:10-12, 24; 2 Tim 3:1-5)
With society living the panoply of lies which cause violence and death to others, one asks: will the preacher expose the lies or perpetuate them by his silence? Does political correctness reach into the pulpit to cancel truth? Are Christian churchgoers left to consider lies and truth as nothing but competing political arguments? Assume nothing. Many culturally conditioned Christians are not grounded in truth. When I did not preach Truth, did not thunder against lies, they consequently did not know how to think about legalized child-killing. I abandoned them to the corrupted mindset of the media.
When Jesus exposed lies He dashed them to pieces. He made enemies; they killed Him. Notice how liars tend to be bold and brassy while God's truth-sayers mumble apologetically. Is it because "Light has come into the world but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."? (John 3:19-21)
Are there 10 steps to better preaching? No! The best way to preach it is to just preach it... after having repented of not preaching it, after owning up to the blood-guilt of silence. If you start for the wrong reason you will not last. You must first look to the next infant in the neighborhood, the next mother, the next father. They are either your siblings in Christ or they are not. Instead of preaching on "abortion", talk about them. But first, try to save them. Show up. Pray. Take authority in Jesus' Name over demons of death.
Isaiah 59:2-18 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.
For your hands are stained with blood, your fingers with guilt. Your lips have spoken lies, and your tongue mutters wicked things. No one calls for justice; no one pleads his case with integrity. They rely on empty arguments and speak lies; they conceive trouble and give birth to evil. ...Their deeds are evil deeds, and acts of violence are in their hands.
Their feet rush into sin; they are swift to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are evil thoughts; ruin and destruction mark their ways. The way of peace they do not know; there is no justice in their paths. They have turned them into crooked roads; no one who walks in them will know peace. So justice is far from us, and righteousness does not reach us. We look for light, but all is darkness; for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows. Like the blind we grope along the wall, feeling our way like men without eyes. At midday we stumble as if it were twilight; among the strong, we are like the dead.
We all growl like bears; we moan mournfully like doves. We look for justice, but find none; for deliverance, but it is far away.
For our offenses are many in Your sight, and our sins testify against us. Our offenses are ever with us, and we acknowledge our iniquities: rebellion and treachery against the LORD, turning our backs on our God, fomenting oppression and revolt, uttering lies our hearts have conceived.
So justice is driven back, and righteousness stands at a distance; truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter.
Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey. The LORD looked and was displeased that there was no justice.
He saw that there was no one, He was appalled that there was no one to intervene; so His own arm worked salvation for Him, and His own righteousness sustained Him.
He put on righteousness as His breastplate, and the helmet of salvation on His head; he put on the garments of vengeance and wrapped Himself in zeal as in a cloak.
According to what they have done, so will He repay wrath to His enemies and retribution to his foes; He will repay the islands their due. Isaiah 59:2-18

Do Your Part to Stop Child Murder!

Do your part to stop child murder!

How? Go to the killing places! Keep your eyes open! Make meticulous notes! Interview women and men who are there to kill their children. Interview clinic workers and abortionists! Take photographs and videotape! Research status of abortionist and killing staff and federal and state laws on child killing (much can be done online and by making phone calls!). Keep a record and report all suspicious activities when necessary, such as:
* Under age girls
* Women who are late in their pregnancies
* Abortions that are facilitated by non-licensed, non-certified staff
* Arrival of ambulances (Follow to hospital, interview aborting/injured women & their companions, get all 911 tapes)
* Abortionists leaving premises before all aborting women are released

See the following press release and be inspired to continue to battle the evil of abortion. Today counts forever.

Hold Fast....


James 1:27 describes the practice of pure Christianity for us: "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."

We have spent many years visiting and extending our own arms in Jesus' name, to the little ones who were being led to slaughter. Beginning in March of 1996 we watched James Pendergraft and all of his henchmen and hirelings perform grisly procedures on these precious babies through all nine months of pregnancy. We saw babies sucked out of their mothers wombs, we saw boys and girls stabbed and lethally injected with a long needle through their hearts, we found babies delivered on the front lawn of his abortuary, in hotel bathrooms and in the back seats of a car. We were there when viable infants were born alive and left to die in bio-hazard bags and toilets. Although we always reported what we saw and heard and learned, the Agency for Health Care Administration and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement never made Pendergraft stop murdering innocent children. On the contrary, we saw the wicked prosper.

Pendergraft's evil empire grew in Florida from one killing place in Orlando into five death camps all over the state. The sewers and incinerators of Florida were drenched with the blood of her tiniest citizens. And then, on August 10, 2006 the Secretary of the Department of Health called a halt to the murder of infants by James Scott Pendergraft. All of Pendergraft's abortuaries were given the order to CEASE FIRE.

We rejoiced.

Pendergraft appealed the suspension of his medical license and demanded to be allowed to slaughter innocents again. Although the CEASE FIRE has been lifted at three of Pendergraft's killing places, Orlando Women's Center and EPOC remain under strict orders not to murder children.

Let us continue to petition the Savior to grant the gift of salvation to murderer James Scott Pendergraft that he might show that he is truly saved by bringing forth fruits and works of genuine repentance. (Matthew 3:8, Acts 26:20, 2 Timothy 2:25 ) Oh that we might see this serial killer come to his senses and confess all of his wicked deeds to Christ and to those in authority! Oh that we might see the day that Pendergraft seeks to make amends for all of the thousands of dismembered and born alive infants who have fallen by his hands and under his evil instructions.

Beloved, let us be assured of this; the arm of Christ is not shortened. God, in His infinite wisdom and justice, can stretch out His holy arm to make war against Pendergraft. The Lord is free in His grace to extend mercy to Pendergraft as well. Whatever God does, He does in goodness and perfect holiness. All praise to our great God and King, Christ Jesus, Who does all things well.

May Jesus strengthen our prayers and establish our faith to believe that it is possible for God to bring Pendergraft to his knees and all of his evil associates as well. For with God nothing shall be impossible. (Luke 1:37) Like the father whose own precious child had been delivered of demons (in Mark 9:24) let us cry out together with tears:
"Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief."

And indeed Moses was faithful .. but Christ, as a Son over His own house,
whose house we are
if we hold fast the confidence and rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.
Hebrews 3:5 & 6
