Sometimes we forget what an impact we can have out at the killing place, but every time someone is convicted by our presence and leaves is a potential save. We had a couple of those our last outreach.
We arrived at the death camp at 8:30 and realized it was closed for meetings until 10:30. It was nice to have a quiet morning and an empty parking lot. No two weeks are the same but this was rare. We may have had two saves as two ladies ended up leaving and going to the Pregnancy care center. A small crowd began to gather outside the locked killing place door. It was a captive audience and they heard about 10 minutes of Gospel truth preached before the doors unlocked.
One of these ladies waiting was hiding around the wall so she would not be seen by us. She would not come over to take the literature but you could see the weight of God’s Word was having an affect. What may have been so easy if we had not been there was now a struggle. She wasn’t able to just go into the slaughter house and have one of the workers smile at her and tell her it was no big deal and take a pill to kill her child.. She had heard the truth about “choice”. What about the child’s choice to live? If it’s all about choice surely we should care about the child’s choice. She had heard that not all choices are the right choice. Obviously, the “pro choice” champions are not okay with ISIS choice to cut peoples heads off.
She had seen the hypocrisy of the deathscort trying to prevent the waiting clients from receiving our materials and thinking about alternative choices. She was challenged by the fact that businesses that kill people don’t really care about people.
She was given the truth that if abortion was no big deal then woman and men would not feel regret, depression, and even suicidal after they terminated a life. This was more than a wisdom tooth being removed, or an appendix being taken out, no one feels guilt over that, it was a life being terminated– a life made in God’s image.
She heard that life begins at conception
–The children struggled together within her Genesis 25:22
-When men strive together and hit a pregnant woman, so that her children come out, but there is no harm, the one who hit her shall surely be fined, as the woman’s husband shall impose on him, and he shall pay as the judges determine. But if there is harm, then you shall pay life for life, Exodus 21:22-23
–The LORD called me from the womb, from the body of my mother he named my name. Isaiah 49:1
She also heard that children are a gift from God (Psalms 127:3). You shall not murder (Ex 20:13). Cursed is anyone who takes a reward to shed innocent blood (Deut 27:25). God hates hands that shed innocent blood (Pro 6:16), and that cowards will not have eternal life (Rev 21:8) it is cowardly to kill children and not trust God.
Why would I preach these hard truth that could obviously upset these people? Because the true victim is the one being murdered, not the one paying for the murder. The true victim does not have a voice and we are called to be that voice.
“Open your mouth for the speechless, In the cause of all who are appointed to die. Open your mouth, judge righteously, And plead the cause of the poor and needy.” Proverbs 31:8-9
After the door opened to the death camp and everyone went inside, about 5 minutes later this lady who was hiding minutes earlier from hearing God’s Word almost ran over to me wanting the literature.
She told me she needed a pregnancy test and was a single mom living with her parents, already had one child and was being pressured by her mom to have an abortion if she was pregnant. We spent some time talking, she was going to the pregnancy care center and abortion was no longer an option for her. Some of the ladies started counseling her as she started breaking down from a previous abortion she had. It was a beautiful sight to see God’s Holy Spirit working on her.
And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment (John 16:8)
What a blessing when we simply believe and obey God’s Word. When that happens lives can literally be saved now and for eternity. If you really want to grow in your walk and experience God make sure you leave the upper room of fellowship regularly and go to rescue those who are perishing, you won’t regret it.
Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. Proverbs 24:11
