States of Refuge Vision

 

 
Chet Gallagher and Johnny Brekeen continue on the road with their States of Refuge Truth Truck Tour. Soon they will finish their travels in Mississippi to prepare for our next regional event in Jackson, MS. Operation Save America, along with local saints in MS, will storm the gates of hell at the last remaining death camp in MS defiling our land. Prayers and participation are coveted. The dates are Nov. 7-11th. Hope to see you there.
 
Second, to those who will be joining us, keep in mind a filmaker from Paris, France will be filming the actions of our ministry at this event. It will become part of a documentary about America and 9/11/2001. In God’s providence, the filmaker chose our family and ministry as a sample of different American responses to this national tragedy.
 
The filmaker happened to be at Ground Zero in NYC at the 9/11 anniversary ceremony a couple of years ago. He heard our prophetic message and was moved by it. He is not a Christian, but definitely wants our Biblical perspective presented in this documentary. Saints, at this next phase of the States of Refuge campaign, what we do and say to honor God, advance His Kingdom, and to defeat the evil of child-murder will be recorded to grant us a greater platform to deliver God’s mail to the world. Let us be faithful with the love and truth of Christ to expose evil and set the captive free in Jesus’ name!
 
The following article is being sent out to remind and/or reveal the importance of the States of Refuge vision and mission. 

 

States of Refuge Vision

  

“Therefore I command you, saying, ‘You shall separate three cities for yourself.’ “Now if the Lord your God enlarges your territory, as He swore to your fathers, and gives you the land which He promised to give to your fathers, and if you keep all these commandments and do them, which I command you today, to love the Lord your God and to walk always in His ways, then you shall add three more cities for yourself besides these three, lest innocent blood be shed in the midst of your land which the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, and thus guilt of bloodshed be upon you” (Deuteronomy 19:7-10).

 

History of States of Refuge Vision

  

January 22, 2013 will be the 40th anniversary of the infamous Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court Decision. Biblically, the 40th year epoch carries significant revelation. Scholarly theologians have recognized the number 40 in Scripture as a noteworthy number. Mainly, they agree that the frequency of its occurrences and the uniformity of its association with periods of probation, trial, and chastisement establish a consistent Biblical pattern. Likewise, Operation Save America believes the 40th year of Roe v. Wade holds tremendous implications for our nation as it pertains to these same Biblical themes manifesting in our day.

 

To prepare for the 40th year, we sought the Lord for a divine strategy to defeat the evil of child-killing that is invoking God’s wrath and destroying our nation. Our intention was never to trade strategy for truth as many in this battle are prone to do, but to seek God for His strategy that would begin to liberate America one state at a time from the bloodguilt our nation staggers under. Based upon King David’s life as a poet, warrior, statesmen who sought God for divine strategies to defeat enemies in his day, we asked the Lord for his strategy to help to defeat this grave evil in our day.

 

As we prayed, we noticed there were five states in America, Arkansas, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming, with one death camp remaining defiling our land. This represents the abortion industry at its weakest and most vulnerable points. For the Church, it is the greatest opportunity for victory against the culture of death that spawned the American holocaust.

 

Deuteronomy 19:7-10

 

The States of Refuge vision is based upon the Deuteronomy 19:7-10 Scripture model. Here, God commands his people to take extensive precautions and invest significant effort, even to the point of establishing cities, in order to avoid bloodguilt. If anyone is familiar with the time, effort, and resources it takes to build cities, one can only imagine the priority God places on steering clear of incurring bloodguilt.

 

God warned over and over again do not shed innocent blood in the Promise Land that flowed with milk and honey (Numbers 35:33, 34). In Leviticus 18, the Lord points out the sexual immorality and subsequent child murder practiced by the previous pagan nations to warn Israel, “Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants” (Leviticus 18:24, 25).   

 

God revealed the severe consequences associated with bloodguilt. It would defile and pollute the land (Psalms 106:38). Violence would grow up as a rod to punish the iniquity of the land (Ezekiel 7:11). Since you do not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you (Ezekiel 35:6). God’s people would become subject to tyranny and laws by which they cannot abide (Psalm 106:40-42). It was an abomination so evil, if left unchecked, God would eventually not pardon (2 Kings 24:1-4).

 

We must also remember God does not punish the land for simply allowing the shedding of innocent blood. He moves to punish the land when bloodguilt is not penalized by lawful authority. The state and the church may fail in their responsibilities to protect the innocent, but God cannot deny Himself. If lawful authorities refuse to stop the murder of the innocent, the penalty merely shifts from the individuals responsible to society at large. Either Americans cleanse the land of this evil, or God will continue to cleanse the land of Americans. We see it happening all around us today. We are in the process of being dispossessed as a nation.

 

How Should We Then Live

 

This was the famous question posed by theologian, Francis Schaeffer in his book and film series that addressed the “The Rise and Decline of Western Thought and Culture.” It was Schaeffer as well who stated, “Every abortion mill should have this sign posted on it: ‘This abortion mill is open by permission of the local church.'”

 

Obviously, God presents the prevention of the shedding of innocent blood as a matter of highest priority for men and nations. This was the main reason for God establishing civil government according to Genesis 9:6. What happens if civil government betrays their sacred trust to protect life and stop the shedding of innocent blood? The responsibility falls to God’s people to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death, to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, to love our neighbor as ourselves, practice the Good Samaritan ethic, and to be our brother’s keeper.

 

Tragedy typically compels us to disrupt our comfortable lifestyles and routines to come to the aid of those whose lives are in peril. We see this in Christian relief efforts throughout our nation and abroad. Somehow the church at large has dismissed the magnitude of the American holocaust and has established an awkward peace in the midst of this national crisis. Therefore, we do not respond with the same urgency afforded other victims targeted by disasters.

 

The shedding of innocent blood is and has always been central to the fierce and desperate strategy of the Enemy. Every time Satan reared his ugly head in Scripture children died. The enemy stalks the seed of man with a ferocious appetite to kill, steal, and destroy. Why? Jesus reveals the answer in Matthew 19:13-15. God’s Word states, “Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.’And He laid His hands on them and departed from there.”

 

What should be our response? Perhaps, we should follow our Lord who came to destroy the works of the devil, which he described in John chapter 8 as lies and murder (1 John 3:8). Jesus stated, “He (the devil) was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it” (John 8:44)

 

This is how Roe vs. Wade became the so-called “law of the land.” Norma McCorvey lied about being raped and unprecedented murder savaged our land. Thankfully, the Lord redeemed Miss Norma from the pit and has set her feet upon a rock. She now has a new song to sing. It is one that glorifies Jesus and seeks to end the hellish nightmare perpetrated by her case.

 

We believe the States of Refuge campaign must go forth to defeat these lies and murder with the love, truth and life of Christ. According to Romans, “We overcome evil by doing good” (Romans 12:21). We believe it is a good work, whose time has come. We pray that men and women whom the Apostle Paul described in 2 Timothy 2:21 will join the effort. “Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.”

 

We pray that those who read this article that describes the vision and mission of the States of Refuge campaign will see its potential. We pray there will be a resounding AMEN from God’s people! We pray that many will cross the line of obedience and help see this vision become a reality in Jesus’ name. There are three ways to join the “Gentle Revolution” that will prayerfully present to our Lord soon the first abortion-free states in America. They are as follows:

 

Prayer

 

“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.

 

Laborer

 

“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. You can check our website at www.statesofrefuge.org for updates.

 

Funding

“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. Thank you for your consideration and the part you might play to fulfill this Gospel of the Kingdom venture against the culture of death savaging our nation.
