‘bp oil spill reveals the heart of hypocrisy’

 deepwater

The BP Oil spill is now front and center of the entire world. Government officials estimate between 24 million to 47 million gallons of crude oil have leaked into the Gulf since the April 20 explosion that killed 11 workers, making it the nation’s largest oil spill ever. Latest projections have the oil being pulled into the loop current that runs from the Gulf of Mexico, around the southern most tip of Florida and north into the Atlantic Ocean, with a high probability of affecting the coast of Europe.

The pictures below are reminiscent of what is playing out along the northern Gulf Coast, nearly seven weeks after a BP rig exploded and the wellhead a mile below the surface began releasing millions of gallon of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. With each news report we feel a spirit of bitterness that is rising to unprecedented levels, even from those that do not live in the immediate affected area.

There is not only the smell liken to diesel fuel along the beaches, but the stench of death is beginning to permeate the salty gulf air.

PUBLIC OUTCRY

 

BP Oil Flood Protest in Jackson Square, New Orleans LA May 30, 2010

 

Imagine a society that had the same concern for an innocent baby in it’s mothers womb as it does for the birds, turtles and fish in the sea. Or a vehement disdain for the doctor that profits from ripping the unborn child from the safety of its mother’s womb as the BP executive that is making billions in profits.

Where is the public outcry? Eleven workers die on the Deepwater Horizon and hundreds and thousands of creatures living in the sea, pale in comparison to the 48,589,993 killed at the hand of the abortionist since 1973. Why is our society not as angry with the medical profession, judges, senators, congressmen/women and even the president of this United States as they are with the executives of British Petroleum?

How can a nation’s heart not break for these tiny babies yet pictures of these innocent birds covered in oil will bring tears to our eyes? Does this make sense to you? This catastrophe has eternal consequences.

There can be but one answer and it proves the word of God is true…

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes and prudent in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21

There is but one answer… REPENT! May God have mercy on us.

Before I formed thee in the womb I knew thee, and before you were born, I sanctified thee and ordained thee to be my prophet.        Jeremiah 1:5

‘the fruit of the womb is HIS reward’

black_baby

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is His reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate… Psalm 127:3-4

 

I Am a Child of God

Month One
Mommy, I am only .25 inch long but I have all my organs.
I love the sound of your voice.
Every time I hear it I wave my arms and legs.
The sound of your heart beat is my favorite lullaby.

Month Two
Mommy, today I learned how to suck my thumb.
If you could see me you could definitely tell that I am a baby.
I’m not big enough to survive outside my home though.
It is so nice and warm in here.

Month Three
You know what Mommy, I’m a boy!
I hope that makes you happy.
I always want you to be happy.
I don’t like it when you cry.
You sound so sad.
It makes me sad too and I cry with you even though you can’t hear me.

Month Four
Mommy, my hair is starting to grow.
It is very short and fine but I will have a lot of it.
I spend a lot of my time exercising.
I can turn my head and curl my fingers and toes and stretch my arms and legs.
I am becoming quite good at it, too.

Month Five
You went to the doctor today.
Mommy, he lied to you.
He said that I’m not a baby.
I am a baby, Mommy, your baby.
I think and feel.
Mommy, what’s abortion?

Month Six
I can hear that doctor again.
I don’t like him.
He seems cold and heartless.
Something is intruding my home.
The doctor called it a needle.
Mommy, what is it? It burns!
Please make him stop!
I can’t get away from it!
Mommy! HELP me!

Month Seven
Mommy, I am okay.
I am in Jesus’ arms.
He is holding me.
He told me about abortion.
Why didn’t you want me, Mommy?

Every Abortion Is Just:

  • One more heart that was stopped.
  • Two more eyes that will never see.
  • Two more hands that will never touch.
  • Two more legs that will never run.
  • One more mouth that will never speak.

Herein lies the greatest rebellion of a society against God. Killing babies made in the likeness of His image.

‘the hand of hope’

 The Hand of Hope

Story of the “Fetal Hand Grasp” Photograph

As a veteran photojournalist in Nashville, Tennessee, I was hired by USA Today newspaper to photograph a spina bifida corrective surgical procedure. It was to be performed on a twenty-one week old fetus in utero at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. At that time, in 1999, twenty-one weeks in utero was the earliest that the surgical team would consider for surgery. The worst possible outcome would be that the surgery would cause premature delivery, and no child born earlier than twenty-three weeks had survived.

The tension could be felt in the operating room as the surgery began. A typical C-section incision was made to access the uterus, which was then lifted out and laid at the junction of the mother’s thighs. The entire procedure would take place within the uterus, and no part of the child was to breach the surgical opening. During the procedure, the position of the fetus was adjusted by gently manipulating the outside of the uterus. The entire surgical procedure on the child was completed in 1 hour and thirteen minutes. When it was over, the surgical team breathed a sigh of relief, as did I.

As a doctor asked me what speed of film I was using, out of the corner of my eye I saw the uterus shake, but no one’s hands were near it. It was shaking from within. Suddenly, an entire arm thrust out of the opening, then pulled back until just a little hand was showing. The doctor reached over and lifted the hand, which reacted and squeezed the doctor’s finger. As if testing for strength, the doctor shook the tiny fist. Samuel held firm. I took the picture! Wow! It happened so fast that the nurse standing next to me asked, “What happened?” “The child reached out,” I said. “Oh. They do that all the time,” she responded.

The surgical opening to the uterus was closed and the uterus was then put back into the mother and the C-section opening was closed.

It was ten days before I knew if the picture was even in focus. To ensure no digital manipulation of images before they see them, USA Today requires that film be submitted unprocessed. When the photo editor finally phoned me he said, “It’s the most incredible picture I’ve ever seen.”

At the inception of the earthly ministry of Jesus of Nazareth, the scripture tells us that He left Nazareth and came and dwelt in Capernaum which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet saying, “The land of Zabulon and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; the people which sat in darkness saq great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.” Matthew 4: 13-16

Light Shines in Darkness:

The scripture tells us that the light came into the world and though the world was made by Him, it knew Him not. Jesus the Christ, came unto His own, but His own received Him not. Though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him….

The Light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not!

Why?

Light has come into the world, but me loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil, for every one that doth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.”

When I first heard the above testimony by Michael Clancy and his work:  ‘The Hand of Hope’, I thought to myself, how amazing is the grace of God that He continues in this day to bring forth light (manifest truth), thereby thwarting the lies and works of darkness our society is immersed therein.

After seeing this EVIDENCE OF LIGHT manifested in Michael’s work, how can a nation continue to deny that a child encapsulated in the safety of it’s mother’s womb, is in fact a living human being?

For the rest of the story, read The Controversy Behind The Picture; http://www.michaelclancy.com/story.html#slideshow. Not all that witnessed this miraculous event received the light of the moment.

The Light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not!

Truth was brought to light but the instruments of darkness continue to  reject light and suppress the truth… as it was from the beginning.

It is pretty obvious that the medical profession and Life Magazine had an agenda and they were more interested in showing how far medical science had progressed in the twentieth century, in utero fetal surgery, than giving credence to life, and that in accordance to the truth of God’s word…

“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

This rejection of truth (light) in order to give place to a lie is not uncommon. God’s word gives us a vivid picture of this. It is found in the 22nd chapter of 1 Kings.

Ahab is the king of the northern kingdom in Samaria and Jehoshaphat is king in Judah. Ahab petitions Jehoshaphat that he will go with him to battle in Ramoth-gilead against the king of Syria.

Before Jehoshaphat agrees, he request that Ahab “enquire at the word of the Lord”. So Ahab summoned all of his prophets, those who would speak to his liking. Of course they prophesied that he would go up and the Lord would deliver it (Ramoth-gilead) into the hand of the king. 

Jehoshaphat was not as gullible. He petitioned Ahab that a true prophet of the Lord be summoned. So a true prophet of the Lord, Micaiah, was commissioned. Micaiah’s final prophecy was not liken to the prophets of Ahab, as he prophesied that this battle would result in Ahab’s death.

Now Ahab has a decision to make… truth or a lie…. light or darkness? He chose the lying spirit in the mouth of all of his prophets.

When a man chooses to believe a lie for political or financial reasons, God will send that same lying spirit to satisfy that ones wilful rejection of truth.

Light has come into the world, but me loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil, for every one that doth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.”

Wilful rejection of the truth yields the spirit of a strong delusion. We are a nation that is immersed in the same.

The life that reached forth from his mother’s womb at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in 1999 would be 10 year old today. God gave Michael Clancy the opportunity to witness and document this miraculous testimony. The question is………… will it be light or darkness?

While innocence is slaughtered,  the debate rages on. If this photo offends, it should, for it is grievous sin against a Right and Holy God.

You don’t know the parents of this child or where they live… you do not even know the sex of this child or the day his/her life was terminated… God does! I would to God that it would offend to the point that we would end this senseless murder!

“For instance, in Tennessee, the abortion rate went down when a federal court suspended a parental consent requirement, then rose when the law went back into effect. In Texas, the rate fell after a notification law went into effect, but not as fast as it did in the years before the law. In Virginia, the rate barely moved when the state introduced a notification law in 1998, but fell after the requirement was changed to parental consent in 2003.
Since the united states supreme court recognized states’ rights to restrict abortion in 1992, parental involvement legislation has been a cornerstone in the effort to reduce abortions. Such laws have been a focus of divisive election campaigns, long court battles and grass-roots activism, and are now in place in 34 states. Most Americans say they favor them.
“it’s one of the few areas that the U.S. Supreme court has allowed states to legislate, so it’s become a key for lowering the abortion rate,” said Mary Spaulding Balch, director of state legislation for the national right to life committee. Ms. Balch said she believed that consent laws were effective.”  Excerpts from NY Times Article below…

questions posed on ehealth forum

    • Should there be parental notification laws?
    • Should there be ways to circumvent these laws?
    • Should 17 year olds be held to the same standards as 14 year olds?
    • Should minors from a state that has implemented parental notification laws be ‘allowed’ to obtain an abortion in a state that does not have such a law?

Does anyone find it strange that the school would mandate that a child would need parental consent to get the H1N1 vaccine but NO PERMISSION is required from the parent wheb taking the life of our nation’s teenager’s babies?

The epitome of a rebellious nation against God… killing babies made in the image of God!

12-Year-Old Stuns Pro-Choice Teacher and School with Pro-Life Presentation LifeSiteNews.com
 

By Kathleen Gilbert

TORONTO, February 11, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – 12-year-old “Lia” of Toronto has become a star at her school and on Youtube with her five-minute pro-life speech, crafted for a school competition.  Despite discouragement and outright opposition, Lia’s presentation was so well done that she reportedly won the contest she was told she would be disqualified from, due to the “controversial” message of her speech.

“She was also told that if she went ahead with that topic, she would not be allowed to continue on in the speech competition,” Lia’s mother wrote in the email to the Moral Outcry blog.  “Initially, I tried helping her find other topics to speak on, but, in the end, she was adamant. She just felt she wanted to continue with the topic of abortion. So she forfeited her chance to compete in order to speak on something she was passionate about.”

The mother told LifeSiteNews.com (LSN) that the girl’s homeroom teacher was supportive of Lia’s speech even though she was pro-choice.  “After helping Lia do the speech she said, ‘It really got me thinking,'” the mom noted.

At the schoolwide competition, the mom said one pro-choice teacher on the judge’s panel “didn’t even want to hear” the speech, and stepped down from the panel before Lia began.  After the speech, which Lia’s family said was well-received by both students and teachers, the judges initially told Lia she had indeed been disqualified.  But controversy among the judges eventually led to a reversal, and Lia’s family learned the next day that the panel agreed the girl deserved to win the competition. Read article in its entirety.

Hear the word of the Lord: for the Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out and blood toucheth blood…. Hosea 4:1

We are living in a day when controversial issues leave one feeling very uncomfortable, especially when the controversial issue is a confrontation of one sin or the condoning of such.

My friend there is without controversy a great mystery…..

‘God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.’

Young Lia speaks with this Spirit and it is the Spirit of Life. The voice of reason and truth for the unborn finds its way from the mouth of a babe. Praise the Lord for not only Lia and her convictions for life, but the godly environment she has been immersed in at home.

‘the greatest enemy of the state’

Pro-life pastor prepares for sentencing- OneNewsNow

Watler HoyeAn Oakland, California, pastor could face jail time for expressing his pro-life views.

Pastor Walter Hoye ran into trouble with an abortion clinic while doing an informational picket. Dennis Howard, leader of The Movement for a Better America, believes Hoye is innocent.
“His approach was simply to carry a sign that said ‘Jesus Loves You. Can We Help?’ and offering those who wanted it some information about alternatives to abortion,” Howard explains.
A complaint was filed and Hoye was found guilty in spite of proof to the contrary. “There was a video taken of him doing this, and it shows that he was not harassing anybody,” Howard points out. “In fact, he was being harassed by escorts from the abortion clinic.”
Dennis Howard (Movement for Better America)
Pastor Hoye faces up to two years in jail and a $4,000 fine. Howard is calling Christians into action. “We feel that pro-life organizations around the country ought to take up this man’s cause and pray and fast between now and February 19,” he concludes.
That is when Hoye is due to be sentenced.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Joseph Goebbels

Joseph Goebbels was a master propagandist of the Nazi regime and dictator of its cultural life for twelve years, Joseph Goebbels was born into a strict Catholic, working-class family from Rheydt, in the Rhineland, on 29 October 1897. He was educated at a Roman Catholic school and went on to study history and literature at the University of Heidelberg under Professor Friedrich Gundolf, a Jewish literary historian renowned as a Goethe scholar and a close disciple of the poet Stefan George.

Following the Fuhrer’s suicide, Goebbels disregarded Hitler’s political testament, which had appointed him as Reich Chancellor, and decided to follow suit. He had his six children poisoned with a lethal injection by an SS (Schutzstaffel) doctor and then himself and his wife Magda shot by an SS orderly on May 1, 1945. With characteristic pathos and egomania he declared not long before his death: “We shall go down in history as the greatest statesmen of all time, or as the greatest criminals.”  JewishVirtualLibrary

Are these the propagandist stones of Nazi Germany we see being strewn across the streets of America? Goebbels was correct that the ‘greatest enemy of the State is truth’.

 

“if ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”.

Please keep Pastor Walter Hoye in your prayers as he stands for life, in the face of the opposition from the State.

ABORTION SHOCK: Baby Born Alive Then Thrown Out…….

Updated: 02/06/09 12:50 PM- BuffaloNews.com

Fla. doctor loses license after botched abortion

By CHRISTINE ARMARIO

Associated Press Writer

___________________________________________________

The Board of Medicine has revoked the license of a Florida doctor accused of medical malpractice in a botched abortion case in which a live baby was delivered, but ended up dead in a cardboard box.

The board on Friday found Dr. Pierre Jean-Jacque Renelique in violation of Florida statutes by committing medical malpractice, delegating responsibility to unlicensed personnel, and failing to keep an accurate medical record. Renelique and his attorney declined to comment after the hearing.

The Department of Health said Renelique was scheduled to perform an abortion on a teenager who was 23 weeks pregnant in 2006. Sycloria Williams had been given drugs in advance to dilate her cervix.

According to the complaint, she gave birth at a Hialeah clinic after waiting hours for Renelique to arrive. The complaint said one of the clinic owners put the baby in a bag that was thrown away.

Police found the infant’s decomposing remains a week later.

A medical examiner determined the cause of death was extreme prematurity, the complaint states.

At Friday’s hearing, Renelique told the board of his life-long quest to be a doctor. He said there are generations of physicians in his family, and that he decided to follow the same path after seeing his father treat patients.

Renelique described saving a woman’s life during the second year of his medical residency in Haiti. He later left his home country to work and train in the United States. It was never his intention to do abortions, he said.

“That was not part of my goals when I came to Florida,” he said. “But I had to do it to survive.”

During the board’s questioning, Dr. Elizabeth D. Tucker, an obstetrician-gynecologist from Pensacola, asked Renelique about three different types of medical forceps. Renelique replied that he possessed each of the instruments.

After each question, Tucker also held up a metal instrument, different from the one she had named and inquired about. One of the tools was a metal rod with an arrow attached at the tip.

Tucker asked Renelique if he had that. He replied that he did.

“For the record, these are from my antique collection,” she said later. “We don’t use these in terminations.”

Renelique’s attorney, Joseph Harrison, later requested that his client view the instruments more closely, which the board allowed. Renelique said he had never seen or used the spear in his life.

Renelique said he had advised the patient to come in early as a precaution, and that when he was en route to the clinic, he was called to tend to another patient having an emergency.

He said the clinic staff members didn’t tell him about the delivery when he arrived.

Harrison said Renelique expected the board to uphold the current restriction on his license, which prohibits him from performing abortions unless another physician is present. The Department of Health recommended that his license be suspended. But the board decided to revoke it instead which means he will not be able to practice medicine in Florida.

No criminal charges have been filed in the case, but the state attorney’s office is investigating.

Sometimes I receive letters telling me that even though they do not condone abortion that they would prefer that I not post the pictures of these murdered babies as they find them offensive.

Please allow me to clarify, it is not the pictures that are offending, it is the face to face reality of our nation’s sin. It is said, that a picture is worth a thousand words and the feeling that you are experiencing, if you are offended, is the conviction of God’s Spirit… and that a spirit of condemnation. As a nation we must repent of this vile sin and petition God for mercy and forgiveness.

 Obama Officials Confirm He Will Fund Foreign Abortions-LifeNews

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Officials with the incoming administration of Barack Obama have confirmed that he will indeed overturn a pro-life policy of President Bush on his first day in office. Despite campaigning on the rhetoric of wanting to reduce abortions, Obama will make one of his first actions promoting them globally.

Meanwhile, some 77 members of Congress have signed onto a letter asking Obama to back down from doing so.

President Bush used an executive order on his first day in office to reinstitute a pro-life policy that prevents forcing taxpayers to fund international groups that perform or promote abortions in other countries.

While U.S. law prohibits funding abortions directly, Bush’s Mexico City Policy expands the law by also prohibiting the funding of pro-abortion groups that either do abortions overseas or lobby pro-life governments to sacrifice their abortion limits.

During the presidential election, pro-life groups issued a clarion call to voters telling them their tax money would be used if Obama were elected and saying he would likely reverse the Mexico City Policy immediately after taking office.

The capital publication Congressional Quarterly reports that top Washington officials tell it that the incoming president will reverse the pro-life measure on his first day as president, on Wednesday.

When Obama overturns the limits on global abortions, he will do so over the objections of dozens of members of Congress.

“As a new administration begins, it is our hope you will work, as you have pledged, to create a new era of bi-partisan cooperation. We urge you to continue the Mexico City Policy, which separates abortion and family planning in America’s foreign aid programs,” the bipartisan group of lawmakers wrote Obama on Friday.

They say the policy “ensures that United States family planning funds are not co-opted by groups who promote abortion as a method of family planning. Such activities would send a wrong message overseas that the United States promotes
abortion.”

The members, led by Rep. Doug Lamborn of Colorado and Joe Pitts of Pennsylvania, also say it is “insulting” to other nations to promote pro-abortion groups that lobby them to overturn long-standing pro-life laws based on their culture and heritage.

“We also have a responsibility to respect the laws of many developing countries who have laws prohibiting or restricting abortion. It is an insult to fund organizations that are intent on overturning those laws by promoting the Western ideology of abortion on demand,” they said.

Rep. Nita Lowey, a New York Democrat who sponsored legislation in Congress to reverse the provision, told CQ that somehow putting it in place endangers the health care people in third world nations receive.

But Douglas Johnson, the legislative director of National Right to Life, tells LifeNews.com the Mexico City Policy and Obama’s reversing it is all about abortion.

Thus, it appears Obama’s move will take money away from non-abortion groups that provide services to poor people in foreign nations.

“One effect of Obama’s anticipated order will be to divert many millions of dollars away from groups that do not promote abortion, and into the hands of those organizations that are most militant in promoting abortion as a population-control method,” Johnson explained.

“So, a president who not long ago told the American people that he wanted to reduce the number of abortions, is already effectively promoting the increased use of abortion as a means of population control,” Johnson added.

President Reagan first put the Mexico City Policy in place and it is named for a population conference that took place in the Mexican capital in 1984 when he introduced it.

President George H.W. Bush continued the pro-life policy, President Clinton overturned it, and President George W. Bush kept it for eight years and threatened to veto any Congressional spending bill reversing it.

Under the Mexico City Policy, funding for family planning programs is not reduced.

___________________________________________________

Below I took the liberty to extract some of the text from President Barack Obama’s inaugural address on January 20, 2009 for our consideration.

We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness.

Those of us who manage the public’s dollars will be held to account — to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day — because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government.

To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds. And to those nations like ours that enjoy relative plenty, we say we can no longer afford indifference to the suffering outside our borders; nor can we consume the world’s resources without regard to effect. For the world has changed, and we must change with it.

America, in the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words. With hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come. Let it be said by our children’s children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God’s grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations.

Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the United States of America.

Excerpts taken from President Obama’s inaugural address. NewsYahoo.com

 

It appears that our new administration did not take long to fulfill some of the fears that we were warned of prior to our electing President Obama. These early acts of overturning the pro-life policies have moved this level of wickedness to a new low.

We are a nation that not only is content on killing the unborn child (49,953,900 since 1973) safely cradled in their mother’s womb, we want to help fund the people of poor nations who cannot afford to kill their babies, and this all for the sake of “CHANGE”.

When one considers the excerpts taken from his inaugural speech, his actions and his words seem to be out of kilter, or either President Obama lightly esteems this “God-given promise that all are equal, all are free and all deserves a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness,”. Or maybe it applies to only those that can get out of their mother’s womb alive, and that by no help from America.

It is good to know that with this new administration the American tax payer can rest assured that those given the responsibility of handling our tax dollars will “be held to account”. Is anyone else having trouble  understanding how this political move is going to “restore the vital trust between the people and their government”. Let me ask you a question reader; if you were an unborn baby in your mother’s womb in today’s economy, would you trust the government to bring you into this “light of day” our president is speaking of?  

And ….“To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds”…… and kill your babies. May God have mercy on this changing world.

 

Isa.59:1 Listen! The Lord is not too weak to save you, and he is not becoming deaf. He can hear you when you call.

Isa 59:2 But there is a problem-your sins have cut you off from God. Because of your sin, he has turned away and will not listen anymore.

Isa 59:3 Your hands are the hands of murderers, and your fingers are filthy with sin. Your mouth is full of lies, and your lips are tainted with corruption.

Isa 59:4 No one cares about being fair and honest. Their lawsuits are based on lies. They spend their time plotting evil deeds and then doing them.

Isa 59:5 They spend their time and energy spinning evil plans that end up in deadly actions.

Isa 59:6 They cheat and shortchange everyone. Nothing they do is productive; all their activity is filled with sin. Violence is their trademark.

Isa 59:7 Their feet run to do evil, and they rush to commit murder. They think only about sinning. Wherever they go, misery and destruction follow them.

Isa 59:8 They do not know what true peace is or what it means to be just and good. They continually do wrong, and those who follow them cannot experience a moment’s peace.

Isa 59:9 It is because of all this evil that deliverance is far from us. That is why God doesn’t punish those who injure us. No wonder we are in darkness when we expected light. No wonder we are walking in the gloom.

Isa 59:10 No wonder we grope like blind people and stumble along. Even at brightest noontime, we fall down as though it were dark. No wonder we are like corpses when compared to vigorous young men!

 

My friend, the judgement that America shall awaken to one day shall be liken to a ‘winter of hardships’. The icy currents and storms that will most assuredly ensue will be comparable to nothing our father’s endured, but most certainly our children’s children will have to… those who are allowed to be born.

The Lord is a jealous God, filled with vengeance and wrath. He takes revenge on all who oppose him and furiously destroys his enemies! The Lord is slow to get angry, but his power is great, and he never lets the guilty go unpunished. But he sweeps away his enemies in an overwhelming flood. He pursues his foes into the darkness of night.

Maybe the inaugural speech should have ended…..

 

“Thank you, God have mercy on America”

‘many in America oppose the war, but condone murder…’

The majority of voters across America have spoken and we now have a president, vice president, both a majority of senate and house of representatives that have values and visions that see no problems with killing babies while safe and secure in their mothers womb.

Obama Blocked Born Alive Infant Protection Act- CitizenLink.com

Surely all of these politicians which have been rewarded with victory at the polls will have to pay back the lobbyist, political interest groups and their constituents with laws that will facilitate the killing of the unborn. So when I read of the pro-life stance of the people of Ireland, it a spirit of confidence to find a people that still values human life.

Ireland facing ‘Roe v. Wade’ of Europe? onenews.com

Ireland’s ban on abortion is being challenged before the European Court of Human Rights in what is being called a “pivotal case.” The Family Research Council and Alliance Defense Fund are defending the country’s right to life and have presented a brief to the court.

LifeNews.com reports three Irish women were refused abortions in Ireland and traveled to Britain to obtain them. They have filed a lawsuit against Ireland, hoping to overturn the country’s pro-life laws that ban abortion, except to save the life of the mother. One of the ladies claims she had an ectopic pregnancy and needed an abortion, while another one was taking chemotherapy when she became pregnant.

Consider the oxymoronic tone of this challenge before the European court……. The European Court of Human Rights is going to decide  whether the unborn child has the ‘right to live’?

The citizens of Ireland voted to ban abortion, and Saunders says that was partly on the basis of religious convictions. “The Irish people are Christians, and they know abortion is wrong, and so they prohibit it in their constitution,” he adds.

It may be that just because the majority have strong moral convictions concerning life, that it does not necessarily mean their convictions will prevail…How refreshing it is to find a people that believes in life. May God give them the direction and courage to stand for life in Ireland.

For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! Psalm 139:13-17

To reveal how ignorant and blind a society can be……

Ask a child say 5 – 10 years of age to tell you what they see in the pictures accompanying this article and I dare you to find one that will answer anything other than ‘a baby’… Should be a spirit of condemnation for those of us that have believed the lie.

‘prioritization of the baser sort’

 

Congress’ first priority will be revitalizing the economy. That’s as it should be. The signs are unambiguous that our nation is in recession, just as our national debt is now well over $10 trillion and the current fiscal year threatens to add as much as $1 trillion more in red ink. But revitalizing our economy requires making sound investments. And our children are the most sound investment of all.        Colin L. Powell

Retired Gen. Colin L. Powell served as the 65th secretary of State and as the 12th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

I receive a weekly news letter from congress; Roll Call congress.org@capwiz.com where they petition the populace views on hot topic issues in an attempt to assess the thoughts and intents of their constituents heart.

In the November 23.2008 issue, Roll Call gathered some of our country’s leading voices to advise the new 111th Congress and administration on how to address the many serious challenges facing the nation. One of the leading voices to discuss the topic of economic restoration was Colin L. Powell, former Secretary of State. For the full content click on the link below.

To Restore Economic Health, Congress Must Put Children First

Mr. Powell feels that the first and greatest challenge that the 111th Congress will face when the reconvene in January 2009 is how will we revitalize our economy and how this disease stricken economy will negatively impact the “well-being of the children” in our nation.

We don’t hear much about America’s children in our national economic debate. But they are intricately connected to the dire economic consequences we face as a nation — and their well-being must be a critical part of the solution….. excerpts from Colin Powell’s comments: Roll Call- 11.20.2008

This has always been one of the most perplexing dilemmas in our society. The political rhetoric contends that we promote a society that values and promotes the welfare of children yet we are a society that has condoned the killing of some 49,000,00+ babies since abortion was approved as a means of birth control in 1973. Is this perplexing to you my friend? Why is there no outcry for such atrocities?

Powell continues…

Today in America there are more than 13 million children living in poverty and 8 million without health insurance. We have the second highest infant mortality rate among industrialized nations. And for the first time in history, a majority of voting Americans believes the next generation will fare worse than their parents. These are terrifying statistics for a country looking to regain its leading position in the global economy.

Along with poverty, the lack of health care, economic futures where children will fare worse than the parents, is that high schools all across America are experiencing a dismal high school graduation rate, liken to a drop out crisis; Powell says.

Put simply, to move forward as a nation, the 111th Congress must put our children first. This means taking a fresh look at our priorities and ensuring that all children have quality health care, an excellent education and the necessary services to help lift them out of poverty. It means acknowledging that the economic slowdown profoundly affects children, and offering solutions that enable working families to keep their jobs, stay in their homes and prepare children for college, work and life. It means raising awareness of children’s issues and sending a message that our economic future depends on our commitment to investing in our children.

If this prioritization is accurate, as I am sure Mr. Powell and most of Congress feel this is, it is no wonder that our nation is in the shape it is in.

We might do well to heed God’s advise…

If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. 2 Chronicles 7:13-15
