Dear Honorable Civil Servant,
The Lord richly bless you! Find enclosed a brochure announcing a new national campaign to liberate America from the blood guiltiness that is defiling our beloved land. It is called the States of Refuge, Operation: First Abortion Free States. You, along with every other Representative that serves in your state, are receiving this communiqué. The reason has profound implications. You serve civilly in a state that has one abortion mill remaining that kills babies in the womb and sheds innocent blood.
Abortion is a national tragedy that has invoked the just wrath of God upon our beleaguered nation. Isaiah 59:14 accurately depicts are precarious state, “Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; (Keep in mind that it is righteousness that exalts a nation) for truth has fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” George Mason, Founding Father, when contending against the abomination of slavery in his day warned, “As nations cannot be rewarded or punished in the next world, they must be in this. By an inevitable chain of causes and effects, Providence punishes national sins by national calamities.”
The Civil War was the fulfillment of his warning. It cost our nation 630,000 men. Our nation’s blood, treasure, and flower of our youth were crushed by this devastating conflict. This was the penalty enacted for violating the liberty clause in the Declaration of Independence. We took away the right to liberty from our black brothers and sisters and our nation was harshly judged. What do you think the toll will be when God Almighty demands an accounting for all the innocent blood that America has shed since the infamous Roe vs. Wade Decision?
Our nation, with the blessing of the state and the silent consent of the church, have murdered close to sixty million children made in the image of God. We have denied the most fundamental right of all, the right to life. Every other American right is meaningless, if this right is not protected. Truly, the Civil War may be a tame response from heaven when we consider the enormity between denying liberties as compared to denying life. In fact, President Lincoln stressed, “Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves.” Will the same hold true for Americans who deny life to their own children? Are we forfeiting the life of our nation in order to continue the slaughter of our posterity?
Each day we read in the headlines the dire predicaments that threaten our national survival. There is a direct connection between our spiritual and moral state and the litany of woe overwhelming us today. The Bible teaches that when innocent blood is shed, it cries out for vengeance from the blood-stained ground and rises into the ears of a Holy and Just God (Genesis 4:10 & Rev. 6:9, 10). It pollutes and defiles the land (Numbers 35:33; Psalm 106:38). It can withhold God’s forgiveness from a nation that allows the shedding of innocent blood to continue unabated (2 Kings 24:3, 4).
It defiles God’s sanctuary and profanes His holy name (Leviticus 20:1-4). It provokes God’s anger against His own people. His abhorrence is manifest in such a way that those who hate God’s people rule over them (Psalm 106:37-42). Consider the federal beast currently devouring our freedoms, finances, and future as it relates to this sobering warning. Thus, citizens will be subject to tyranny and unjust laws by which they cannot abide. A fierce and cruel people will attack and commit terroristic acts. God will lift His hand of protection and use enemies to judge nations that commit child sacrifice and shed innocent blood (2 Kings 24:1-4). Consider the rise of Islam in America and weigh how God has dealt with men and nations who allowed this idolatrous act in times past.
Unjust bloodshed will unleash a spirit of violence and murder that will savage a nation. In the case of abortion, we are sowing violence in the womb and are reaping it in our schools, workplaces, churches, and streets. Hosea 4:2b states, “Bloodshed touches bloodshed, it breaks out.” If we do not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue us (Ezekiel 35:6). Violence will grow up like a rod to punish the iniquity of nations that allows innocent blood to be shed (Ezekiel 7:11). If civil government does not bring justice upon those who commit murder, God Himself will judge this sin against Him and this crime against humanity. Therefore, if lawful authorities refuse to exercise justice upon those who commit murder, the penalty passes to the society that tolerates it. Natural disasters, plagues, pestilence, poverty, war, civil strife, and other national catastrophes will visit the iniquity of the land (Leviticus 18). The church and state may fail in their God-ordained responsibilities, but God cannot deny Himself or His holy commands. National sin always leads to national calamity.
The divine calling upon civil government and that which establishes legitimacy before God is to protect life and stop the shedding of innocent blood. President Thomas Jefferson concurred. He stated, “The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.” Abortion destroys human life and thus violates government’s sacred trust. It is one of the toxic roots that are producing the dangerous fruits that are choking the true vine of freedom under our watch.
We can continue to treat the wound of America lightly and seek a political band aid to what ails us or we can do as the Bible commands under these wretched conditions. “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 (2 Chronicles 7:14).”
The best way to serve our nation and get us back on track is not another governmental program. We have to stop murdering our own children and parading our sin like Sodom. We must repent of these sins, crimes, and abominations. God Himself will restore our fortunes with His blessings if we meet His righteous conditions. God’s word states, “If God be for us, who can be against us (Romans 8:31)?” Conversely, if God is against us, it doesn’t make a difference who is for us.
We pray that you will carefully reflect on this letter and the vision of the brochure. If President Obama and some of the Democratic Party can support the “Occupy” fiasco, how much more should you support a mission that seeks to liberate America from the blood guilt we are staggering under today? Please do everything in your power to shut down the one remaining abortion mill in your state and then make sure your state never allows for such atrocities in the future. Only then can we expect the true hope and change we desperately need in this dark hour of our history.
