“Abortion will come to an end, when the church of Jesus Christ makes up her mind it will end – and not one second sooner.” –Rev. Flip Benham, National Director of Operation Save America
With the election of President Obama to our nation’s highest office, the moral, social, economic, and political atmosphere of our country has reached critical mass. Without question, the Obama administration is the Lord’s judgment upon our nation guilty of manifold spiritual and moral infidelities. We have abandoned God’s truth for the vain philosophies of men. The Apostle Paul states our dilemma well:
“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools…Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.” – Romans 1:22-25.
Tragically, this commentary accurately depicts America’s plight. Idolatrous practices, such as; abortion, homosexuality and Islam proliferate under our watch. These abominations have reached heaven and reveal God’s charges against “The land of the free and the home of the brave (Hosea 4:1-6).” Rather than retreat in times of darkness, Christians are commanded to “disciple the nations (Matthew 28:18-20).” We are to march forward with a heavenly vision, empowered by God’s Word, and the anointing of His Holy Spirit. “I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.” – Matthew 16:18.
The Bible warns, however, “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18). In keeping with our mission, Operation Save America is not waiting for the President, the Congress, or the Supreme Court to save America and stop the shedding of innocent blood. We are beyond a political solution to what ails our beleaguered nation. It is time for the Church of Jesus Christ to rise up and take her rightful place at the gates of hell. There is a direct connection between our moral and spiritual state and the litany of woe upon our blood-stained land. States of Refuge is part of a Kingdom strategy for taking back the gates of our land and gives God a reason to show mercy to America once again.
“Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen on you. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise on you, and his glory shall be seen on you.” – Isaiah 60:1- 2 The Sates of Refuge campaign sees our present “hour of darkness” as the time for the light of God’s truth to burn the brightest. Every master jeweler utilizes a black backdrop to highlight his precious jewels.
And you can help…
“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” – James 5:16. This campaign needs intercessors that will undergird this project with fasting and prayer. We need prayer warriors to bombard the heavens and break the strongholds of the principalities, powers and spiritual wickedness in high places that rule the abortion industry in these five states.
“Then said he to his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few; Pray you therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth laborers into his harvest.” – Matthew 9:27-38. There will be many opportunities during this campaign to join with different ministries to be a true witness at the gates of hell.
“And when they came to Hilkiah the high priest, they delivered the money that was brought into the house of God, which the Levites that kept the doors had gathered of the hand of Manasseh and Ephraim, and of all the remnant of Israel, and of all Judah and Benjamin; and they returned to Jerusalem. And they put it in the hand of the workmen that had the oversight of the house of the LORD, and they gave it to the workmen that worked in the house of the LORD, to repair and amend the house.” 2 Chronicles 34:9-10.
The magnitude of this mission will require significant financial backing. We believe where there is the Lord’s vision, provisions will follow. States of Refuge is prepared to do the heavy lifting, fight the battle, and minister at the exposed areas. It is vital that the supply lines necessary to support this vital work be established. There will be considerable expense to meet the needs and fulfill the States of Refuge mission.
