Laboring in the field of Souls...

"Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways: behold,
I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
"
~Luke 10:2-3(KJV)
Saturday morning, Mom and I joined the group of Christians outside of All Women's Health Center abortuary again, at 10 AM. Upon our arrival, a police officer was lecturing Larry. If you know Larry at all, you know he's not "lecture-worthy." He's a precious older man who faithfully labors outside of the abortion mill each week. We later found out he was being lectured for using the plastic megaphone to call out to the women. The clinic worker I mentioned in my first post about ministering at All Women's, "Tanya", was the one who was flipping out. She was very disturbed by everything we did on Saturday. This time was her first, of two times, calling the police. Once the officer left, the plastic megaphone was put away. Shortly after, Dave began calling out to the women who were inside. His preaching was very touching, and much to "Tanya's" dismay, many of the women inside were crying (praise God!). She came out and told the hired security guard about it, while she was waiting for the police to come and stop Dave from speaking.

In the mean time, Patte and I began talking to a 38-year-old man we'll call "Gary." He had brought his wife to the death mill to have their tiny child, the fruit of their marriage, ripped out of her womb, for the sake of convenience. The couple has a 16 year old, a 12 year old, and a 6 year old. He thought they were "too old" to have another. He was tired of hearing his wife complain about morning sickness. They couldn't afford another baby. Excuse after excuse--bottom line...they didn't want their baby, so they were going to slaughter him/her. The thing about "Gary" and his wife "Sarah" was that they professed to be Christians. It is a horrifying thing to meet supposed Christians at a place of death who are there to murder their babies. Sadly, I've seen it more times than I can count in my short year-and-a-half of sidewalk counseling. Patte and I pled with him for about half an hour to spare his little baby. We showed him scripture after scripture...

"Thou shalt not kill."~Exodus 20:13
"These six things doth the LORD hate:...the hands that shed innocent blood."~Proverbs 6:16-17
"If ye love me, keep my commandments."~John 14:15
"Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire."~Matthew 7:19
"For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no sacrifice for our sins. But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries."~Hebrews 10:26-27

But it was to no avail. Thankfully, our LORD promises that His word will not return void. Until their lives end, they will still be able to repent. God's word is the most powerful tool we have when we witness outside the mills. In addition to the scriptures we showed him, we pled with him based on what was going to happen to his baby. When he saw the picture of an aborted child, after I described to him the procedure, he teared up. Clearly, his conscience was pricked. It is so hard to plead with someone (in this case, for me, to the point of tears) and see them go back in; especially someone who claims to love God. What an abomination to Him! "Gary" and "Sarah" ended up killing their child. They left the abortion mill about 1 PM. "Gary" stopped and told us to have a good day. He and his wife attend charismatic mega-church Faith World, with a "health and wealth" 'gospel.' "Gary" didn't say much for his church by being there.

Most of my morning was spent pleading with 'Gary'. After he went back inside, I went to call out in the back of the building. That was when I found out the police had threatened us with arrest, should we decide to preach again. Not only that, but we were not allowed to talk about a conversation tone. ALSO, we are not allowed to use graphic signs. Clearly, our constitutional rights are being violated. Thankfully, Liberty Counsel is going to help us out. If the Lord is willing, our rights will be restored before long!

Tomorrow morning, it's back to the field. Your prayers, as always, are coveted.

MJ,

Thank you for all that you do. I only wish there would have been someone like you when I had an abortion about 28 years ago. I was used as a baby breeder by my satanic high preist father, as a teen ager was forced to have babies so that they could be used as the sacrifice in the rituals. So the first time I became pregnant as an adult I didn't understand what was really happening. I have now been set free by our redeemer, and have worked for many years as a deliverer for women and children. I now voulenteer as an advocate for children. So again I thank you for your dedication to rescuing the broken and the innocent. From someone who has been on the other side of the sidewalk.

I heard of your blog via Liberty Counsel. Thank God for your brave servant heart...only He knows how many you will influence for Him. Keep fighting this vicious battle and pursue strength and renewal from Him and Him alone.

Blessings,

Just out of curiosity...do you believe that pro-choice advocates have the right to endorse their view at your church or house of worship??

It will never cease to amaze me how much time we spend in finding and taking scrpiture to promote our agenda and to even take it out of context to justify ourselves.
Thank you MJ, for being there and taking your stand on the issue that plagues our land and destory's lives of young & old alike. One day we will all stand before God and will give account to our action or in-action on matters such as this.
Blessings

to mr./ms.anonymous It seems to me so fruitless that someone who very obviously walks in darkness and has no understanding for GOD's word will further put his/her soul in peril by taking GOD's word in vain and I believe to do so is blasphemous to our Lord and maybe even the Holy Spirit who brings understanding to those who believe. And asGod's word says there is only one sin that there is no forgiveness witness it is written in: Mat 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. I pray that this not be the case here because it is terrible that soul that has no hope! For Jesus loves us all more than we can ever know or be worthy of and He died so that none of us would die eternally! Praise to our Lord Jesus Christ and I pray for His quick coming to put an end to the evil and sin of this world!
