Earthquake hits Midwest
The WAA team arrived in the St. Louis area with OSA director Flip Benham and assistant director Rusty Thomas and gave them heaven outside the gates of Planned Parenthood and inside Kiener Plaza to an audience of 100-200 people during their lunch break. St. Louis police stood by and let Rusty and Flip preach for 1 ½ hours without interference. A reporter from Riverfront Times, the most liberal, homosexual newspaper in St. Louis, interviewed both Flip and Rusty. On Saturday we took the proclaiming line to Illinois, to the Mecca of the Midwest in child-killing, the Hopeless mill in Granite City where between 150-200 babies are killed weekly. They specialize in late-term abortions, no parental consent is needed in Illinois.
The shofar was sounded at these gates where a Jericho march ensued and Granite City police lay in waiting with an ordinance that "farm animals" were not welcomed in this city of slaughter. One precious baby’s life was spared from this altar of Molech.
On Sunday, Flip and Rusty spoke at church services at the First Baptist Church of Valmeyer in Valmeyer, Illinois, and that evening at Garden Baptist Church in Overland Missouri, where a woman gave her heart to the Lord. We were blessed with a delicious potluck meal after both services.
In between speaking engagements, Flip, Rusty and the WAA team met Angela at the gates of hell at the annual St. Louis "Sodom-fest" held with a "gay-pride" parade at Tower Grove Park. An approximate 7,000-8,000 were in attendance this day. Proclaimers standing along the parade route were jeered, cursed and even squirted with giant water-guns for standing for the Gospel, all in full view of toddlers and young children. Where’s the tolerance? We entered the enemies’ camp in peace but were met with hostile spiritual warfare.
The decadence and perversity was so thick, you could cut it with a knife. Sin was rampant. There were Sodomite booths such as a "Catholic Lemonade" stand, "blessed by the Pope" and Teen-age Militant Homosexuals, manned by young adolescents wearing black. Sodomite physicians stood in a booth located in the park with a sign "We’re not sinners, We just spread God’s love!" Planned Parenthood and NARAL chanted, "2, 4, 6, 8, We’re the ones who ovulate, not the Church, not the state, women should decide their fate!"
One black American male with a Planned Parenthood shirt walked up to Angela held a video camera in her face and said, "Angela…darling…say something." Angela replied, "JESUS," and he rejoined the group marching. The WAA team led Judgment and Mercy through the Pridefest and made it ¾ of the way through when the sodomite pride officials and jack-booted thugs a.k.a. two female sodomite police officers literally grabbed Flip and Destiny and Savanah and were pulling them, they even grabbed Mercy’s lead. Party-goers began chanting and gathering as the WAA team was led out of the park as Flip gave them the Gospel. Sodomites chanted "Hey-hey, Ho-ho..homo-phobes gotta go"…and "Hey…hey...Ho-ho…horse and donkey gotta go." A full cup of beer was thrown onto Angela’s back.
Once outside, the Gospel of Jesus Christ went forth with the R.V. speakers across the street. That’s when the male officer Herzberg grabbed Flip’s hands and forced them behind his back and cuffed him to make an arrest. Rusty and Bill came to his aid while Brother John Bailiff rebuked the other officers for allowing this sodom-fest to be protected and celebrated by St. Louis's finest with the approval of the Grand Marshall, St. Louis’s Chief of Police Joe Mokwa and Fire Chief Sherman George. Proclaimers witnessed a group of sodomite St. Louis police officers, males and females walking and holding clutched hands up in the air as they paraded their sin in uniform in the Pridefest parade earlier.
Angela noticed an elderly Romanian woman walking by all this, she was crying and upset with this festival "it breaks my heart," she cried. Rusty and Christina came over. We held her and prayed and tried to comfort her. She was in her nineties. Flip was issued a ticket for a noise violation. We quipped, "The sodomites blasted this neighborhood for the past four hours with loud, beating music." But that was "tolerant." We were able to stand on the sidewalk outside this park and witness to the sodomites entering and leaving this "sin-fest."
On Monday at 1:11 a.m. CDT, a 4.5 magnitude earthquake struck the Midwest. It’s epicenter was Ottawa, Illinois. Earthquakes in this area are rare.
The Michael family joined the WAA team as they walked out of Highland, IL to the next resting place of the team. Flip and Rusty did an interview with the local town newspaper on the way out of town. As we walked we enjoyed this beautiful weather that the Lord has provided for the past 5 days. It brought to reality some of the undertaking and the pains that Jesus our Lord went through as He walked from town to town, making theology biography.
Welcome to the Church of "It’s all good!"
At the Pridefest a group of sodomites walked by and a male Catholic sodomite said to Angela & Flip, "It’s all good. I go to 5:00 mass on Saturday and go to confession and I’m good. It’s all good." It’s like the Church is giving sodomites and child-killers a license to go out and sin and then confess their sins, take out their debit card, slide it through and it’s all good. This is the sorry state of the church today. It’s all good. ~Angela
When Christianity comes out of the closet all hell breaks loose and all heaven comes down. They scream like banshees, they attack and they do everything to silence that message, to extinguish the light that comes to illuminate their own hearts. They’ll do everything they can, and yet as we speak the Gospel we see the power of God. What this does is increase our faith and makes us desire victory. What is the victory? Faith is the victory. God doesn’t say that victory is the victory. He says that this is the victory even your faith. And as we walk out and see God pulling down strongholds, as we see God saving people out of the fires of hell and out of the enslavement of homosexuality and to everything else that you can possibly imagine, as we see the power of God, that increases our faith, and we just continue.
See, this is what we as Christians need to do is just live out our faith, not depending on Republicans, not depending on conservatives, but just depending on God Himself, unafraid of anyone but God Himself, and learning to love people more than ourselves, learning how to despise the shame as our Savior did before us, and running to the battle, running to the roar instead of away from it. -And of course, the world will hate us, but Jesus told us that the world hated Him because He testified that what it did was evil. That’s in John 15. There’s going to be no denying the words of Jesus. Even though He loved the world, the world hated Him.
We love the homosexual community by speaking the truth and the homosexual community says it is hate speech. Well, they said the same thing when Jesus was here, "He’s filled with hate. He called us whitewashed sepulchers. He called us a brood of vipers." They nailed the love of God and the love that He had for everyone to a cross. And yet, He did not save Himself. He did not love His own life so much as to shrink from death. Yes, He died that we might be forgiven. And do you know that those who followed Him, all of them died martyrs’ deaths, those 12 disciples with the exception, of course, of John who was cast off to the island of Patmos. So we have a wonderful charge, we have a wonderful God, if we would just give Him a chance to get out of the salt shaker. The way that He’s gonna do that is if we just get out and go. Then we will see Him do exceedingly, abundantly above all we ask or imagine. Okay, that’s where we’re going. ~Flip Benham
