What a Celebration – What a Battle!
REPOSTED FROM: May 19, 2013
The atmosphere was electric, charged with the glory of God, as we approached the completely empty parking lot of “A Preferred Women’s Health Center” at 3220 Latrobe Drive in Charlotte, North Carolina. This abortion center just had its license suspended by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. Over one hundred gentle warriors for King Jesus (moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas, boys and girls) began to fill the street in front of this awful place where thousands of little baby boys and girls have been slaughtered. It had been closed for three consecutive days and on this day – Tuesday, May 14, 2013 – it was shut up tighter than a drum.
The incredible prayers, the sounding of the shofar, the shouts of joy, the music, the explosive testimonies of what our Lord had done, the praise and worship filled the whole neighborhood with the high praises of Almighty God. We were overflowing with the joy of the Lord and it would not be contained. Indeed the joy of the Lord became our strength (Nehemiah 8:10).
Little did we know on that wonderful day how much we were going to need it.
We found out last night that the abortion mill filed a “petition for a contested case hearing” with the Office of Administrative Hearings in Raleigh, North Carolina. A Preferred Women’s Health Center was granted a stay and will be opening its doors this morning, May 15, 2013, to resume the murder of God’s precious preborn children.
We need all of our gentle warriors back on the front lines today. If it is inevitable that little children must die, it is imperative that they do not die alone.
“All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised, they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth…they were longing for a better country – a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.” Hebrews 11: 13-16
Come on “church militant” get your armor on and sharpen the Sword of the Spirit. We have a battle to fight and to win in the strong Name of Him who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despised the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father.
So, what will YOU do, given this information? As we have said before, we NEED more sidewalk counselors to cover the three abortion mills. Will you be spurred to action or will you let the Devil discourage you? Check out Sidewalks4Life to see how YOU can get started in your city!
