Today was quite different from all the other days at Planned Parenthood. It was a day that was absent of police presence. Yes, that is right–no police. Looks like PP finally got the note, that my first amendment rights are protected and that I cannot be bullied by them. When I arrived within the first few minutes, an employee of PP took a picture of me outside the door. I told her, I am also recording you. Besides the absence of police presence, whom I love by the way–today the Lord worked mightily. It helps tremendously when you have two brothers co-laboring with you: Uncle Nestor and Pastor Luke. It is encouraging when you have solid believers come with you and are zealous for the lost.
The Lord worked here today. If there is anytime to speak up and reach out to the downtrodden, vulnerable, and defenseless–it is now. Magnify the love of Christ by not only praying, speaking, but acting. This is no condemnatory address, but a wake-up call to the Bride of Christ to be watchful concerning spiritual slumber. Why? Because evil is taking place in various ways. Evil is taking place at the Supreme Court and we have seen its massive effects upon our nation. But the greatest evil takes place in human hearts. The heart is what drives people to reject Christ and to murder their babies.
We must not sit quietly, but we must ride out and do battle. Our weapons are not of this world, but our weapons are prayer and the use of His immortal Word. The Lord has eyes of scanning power observing every step we take in this pilgrimage before we meet Christ face-to-face. Let’s not be remembered by the future generation as a apathetic generation that spoke only from our ivory towers, pulpits, conferences, and gatherings, while many victims are being devoured by dark powers, but let us be a generation that will descend down onto the battlefield to engage evil face-to-face. We must fight relentlessly until the Lord calls us home or when He returns. The Lord will ride out in battle with you, dear Saint. Fear not darkness. Fear the Creator and may you shine the light of the Gospel on a dark and demented world. Serve Him loyally in whatever sphere He has placed you. Do not compromise. By His grace, may we have the mentality that I would rather die than to compromise. Redeem the time because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:16). Praise the Lord for using us. It appears that the posts concerning our trips to the mill is moving the hearts of believers to be involved at this mills. I was able to communicate with a young man who attend a Gospel-centered church from Northern CA. He desires to minister at a murder mill. I plan on speaking with him next week to help prepare him for this new journey. Please pray that God opens up doors for him to minister at these murder mills. Here are some ways you can be involved in the pro-life movement/abolition movement to abolish abortion. It is a fair and balanced article: http://highlandsministriesonline.org/blogs/highlands-blog/is-pro-life-ministry-a-christian-duty/.
Beloved, today was an immensely encouraging day. As we waited for patients to walk outside the doors of Planned Parenthood, there was a young woman whom we pleaded to speak to us for a few minutes. As she began speaking with us, she broke down in tears because of the scars of abortion. I won’t go into the details, but all I know was that she was broken and we knew that she needed spiritual help and guidance from the Word of God. Praise God, she took our Gospel literature. We prayed for her and took down her contact information so that one of our sisters could reach out to her. And praise God, we got word, that next Tuesday, Melanie will meet-up with one of our sisters from church. Please pray that she will receive the Gospel and be convicted about concerning salvation. May she turn from sin and to turn to Christ in faith and repentance.
Another conversation I had was with Erica. As she walked out the door, she actually turned around because I pleaded with her speak with me. Her mind was pricked which is why she decided to come speak with me and had questions for me. I answered her questions and asked her questions myself in order to reveal the futility of her worldview. By the grace of God, we were able to share the Gospel with her too. Near the close of the conversation, I asked her if I could give her a Gospel tract and she said no. I pleaded again, and she took it. Praise God for the power of pleadings. God has ordained them for His glory. Don’t be too proud to beg.
One of our other highlights of the day was our conversation with an armed security guard. I have never seen an armed security guard at Planned Parenthood. I wonder if the videos that were released by The Center for Medical Progress had anything to do with it. I have a feeling that the tension is high for PP due to the scandal concerning the harvesting and selling of baby organs. I pray that they would ultimately fear God. At any rate, the guard was willing to interact with us. I shared with him a short clip from Matt Chandler sermon on abortion (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=absW29h8KGA) and also challenged him on his worldview concerning abortion. The conversation ended with civilly. Please pray for him to be saved. We will probably see him again in the future.
If you are ever out there at an abortion mill, please make it an effort to hand people Gospel-centered tracts as well as information to pregnancy crisis centers that are pro-life. Many of the ladies are ignorant of other pro-life centers that provide services for free except for abortion. I also recommend using signs when you are at a murder mill because it will prick the conscience of those who walk into those mills. You have only a few seconds; make it count.
