Are your hands clean? by Cal Zastrow

     This morning, while God hears thousands of born people in Orlando sing about/to Him, He will also be hearing the screams of babies getting murdered. While He sees born church people folding their hands in prayer or lifting them in praise, ...He will also be watching the hands and heads of pre-natal children getting ripped off by surgical suction machines. Yes, He will hear people's mouths singing about how beautiful it is in the courts of the Lord, about how they are free now from oppression. He will also be speaking to these worshippers, inviting them to listen to Him, after they are done wanting Him to listen to them:
Isaiah 1:12 -17 "When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you; yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. Wash ye, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow."

     Friends, brothers and sisters, when we tolerate the shedding of innocent blood in our land, even our prayers and praise become trouble to God, they weary instead of bless Him. Out of thousands of professing Christians in Orlando, tens of thousands, only a small handful are trying to relieve the oppressed babies. Can not each of us take a turn weekly, monthly, rescuing doomed babies right in front of the gates of hell? Can we not go to these abortuaries and offer help to these hurting moms, telling them of the law and love of God?

     Being "pro-life" doesn't save any babies, but acting pro-life does. Let us bear fruit in keeping with repentance, and rescue these babies. Child-killing will stop the day that the Church of Jesus Christ says it will stop. The murdering of innocent babies will end when it isn't just John and Deanna, or a handful of people, but thousands of Christians coming to the sidewalk, the street, and loving these neighbors as they love themselves.

     I am a maggot, but Jesus has reached down and saved me, and given me eternal life in Christ. I'm looking around for Isaiah, John the Baptist, or Elijah to get up and do something about our nation, our churches, the babies. God has flicked me up side the head and shown me that those guys are dead and gone. We are alive. It is our turn! He doesn't want me to just stand around, thumping my Bible, but to act like He will bless Truth when it is proclaimed and demonstrated. REVIVAL!"

Praise God for you Cal!
We are so thankful for what He is doing through your life.
We too are grieved at the few that are involved in the pro-life action here in Duluth MN. How are God's people so blind to the need to get involved?
God bless you!

YES! Excellent post!! I love this quote..."Being "pro-life" doesn't save any babies, but acting pro-life does."
Four thousand of God’s children are killed every single day in America alone. It’s been 37 years and 50 million dead babies since Roe v Wade. We can’t be ambivalent any longer. It’s time for Christians in America to be bold and step up to the plate!
