Victory and Justice for All in Jesus!
Abortion Doctor, Matthew Kachinas, Guilty of Battery

Posted June 28, 2003
June 26th, Sarasota, Florida: Words cannot describe what the Lord did in the courtroom today in Sarasota, Fl. Although God's judgments continue to come forth on this wayward nation and irrelevant Church, a small band of His lowly servants experienced the mighty hand of our Lord as evil was exposed, justice actually prevailed and victory was won. This was your victory - all of you who have persevered in the battle for Truth and righteousness - all of you who continue to fearlessly lift up the standard of our magnificent Lord and King, Jesus!

Another Attack at the Sarasota (Florida) Women's Death Center
Posted June 28, 2003
On the afternoon of June 17th, Rachel McGlade, Scott Heldreth, along with his three year old daughter, Esther, decided to make a surprise trip to the abortion mill believing that the mill had changed the hours of when they were killing children. Scott had anticipation in his soul that the Lord was going to stir up somebody's heart that day, but never did he imagine the violence ahead. After being there a short time, a young man and woman who obviously had just aborted their child, walked slowly to their car. Scott called out to them to say that they needed to be honest and repentant before a Holy God who absolutely hates the shedding of innocent blood, before they could ever be free and forgiven from their sin. He wanted them to know that the blood was on their hands and the only way to come clean was to be washed in the blood of the Lamb!

Who Will Take a Stand for King Jesus?
By Stephen Mashburn
Posted June 26, 2003

The denomination said "the health of the mother" cannot justify taking a human life." Richard Land, who now heads up the SBC's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission found the health exception "lamentable" but said it can serve as a warning. "It's not a position we've had for the last 30 years. We have been a strongly pro-life denomination. If many of our leaders and many of our people could be confused or blinded by the spirit of the age on this issue in the early '70s, then it could happen again." Could?

Here is simply one more example of the abortion industry's absolute disdain for the lives of mothers who come to it to "solve" the problem of pregnancy. The poor mother is coming to the devil himself to offer up her child and will find no mercy in him at all. The abortion industry doesn't care about mothers, their children, health care, or anything else. The abortion industry cares only about itself! "The wicked man (abortion industry) craves evil; his neighbor gets no mercy from him." Proverbs 21:11.

Kansas Attorney General takes on Abortion Industry!
By Pastor Daniel Thompson
Posted June 26, 2003

I praise God for the opinion given last week by our Attorney General, Phil Kline, requiring by law all abortion clinics to file reports of criminal sexual abuse anytime a girl under 16 is pregnant. The law prohibits adults from having sex with those under 16 because they are legally below the age of consent. The crime is called statutory rape or aggravated indecent liberties, and is punishable in the state of Kansas. By law, all medical facilities and their professional personnel are under obligation to report all knowledge of such a crime to the local child protective services.

The Truth Suppressed at Springcreek Community Church
By Kristene O'Dell
Posted June 25, 2003

On Saturday, June 21, 2003, and again the following Sunday, a small group from OSA - Dallas stood outside Springcreek Community Church with signs of live children, aborted children, and literature entitled "Sing a Little Louder." Why would we do this? Because directly across the street is a practicing abortionist. Dr. Stella S. Kwong does abortions in her family practice office in the quiet suburb of Garland, TX.

His is a ministry of confrontation

Flip BenhamHere is a front page article that appeared in the Sunday Morning edition of the Charlotte Observer, June 22, 2003. Notice that it is Cristina Breen that has written about us again. She also covered our excursion into the sodomite fiasco in downtown Charlotte. We brought the Gospel of Christ to the very gates of hell, and God gave us many opportunities to witness the love of Christ to those enslaved by homosexuality. Cristina does not understand yet the difference between love and luv. That is why she writes about us the way that she does. You will all have an opportunity to witness to her during this summer' national event!

"God Is Going Back to School - The Last Day"

Brianna Lynn, 10 months, rescued from death - Why we call  those limiting choice deathscortsThe saints in Bridgeport, Connecticut gave 'em heaven at the gates of a local high school and, in so doing, touched the hearts and minds of hundreds of kids, teachers, and parents. It was the last day of school, and our last opportunity to bring God back to the school room through the hearts of our kids. - ... About fifteen saints came out to the streets today at Central High School in Bridgeport. We had all ages witnessing for Jesus from ten years old to eighty years old.

Look Who is Defending Eric Rudolph
By Flip Benham
Posted June 19, 200
You won't believe who his attorney is! Rudolph did what he did out of hate. The devil himself was the one orchestrating Mr. Rudolph's bombings, for the devil himself has come to rob, kill, and destroy. For any Christian to take up Mr. Rudolph's cause is utter foolishness. It is my prayer that, if Eric is guilty of these bombings, he will come to repentance while in jail and ask Jesus to forgive him of the horrible things he has done. There is no pit so deep that Jesus is not deeper still.

Homosexual Heresies
By the Rev. Rusty Thomas
Posted June 19, 200
Rusty has done a great job depicting the bending (isogesis) of Scripture done by the sodomite Metropolitan Community Church(MCC) in an effort to make its way (sodomy) pleasing to the Lord. So many lost in the bondage of homosexuality seek a right relationship with God through Jesus Christ, but only on their own terms. They offer the sacrifice of Cain who attempted to approach God in "his own way" rather than offering the sacrifice of Able who approached God in His way. Genesis 4: 1-8.

Is An Embryo Human?
Posted June 19, 200
Dear Rev Flip, Thanks for taking time to speak moments ago. I have found in my attempts to put forth both an ethical argument against abortion & abortifacients, that the media will sometimes publish the religious ones but never publish the ethical ones. It has become clear to me that they want to keep pro-lifers characterized as religious extremists, whose arguments are not to be taken seriously by those who are (as they would put it) "enlightened" by rationalism. However, I have found the attached purely ethical short to be helpful and persuasive for those people who pride themselves in being ethical to the exclusion of religiously motivated. You may use it with or without credit to my authorship; just use it by getting others to print and cut copies.

Royce Dunn is the Founder and President of Life Chain. His home is in Yuba City, California. California? I never dreamed in all of my "California dreamin" that there could be such clarity coming from the left coast, but here it is. Royce has expressed our sentiments for the Lord, His preborn children, and His church far better than we ever have. Enjoy! -
"... Pastors please lead us! The war against the unborn is surely winnable. In any year we commit, the Church can end legalized abortion and bury the ominous myth sustaining Roe v. Wade-the myth that abortion is a 'necessary evil.' For victory to be ours, two formidable weapons await our use. In righteous hands, they defeat the mightiest foe. They are weapons of divine origin, fueled by truth, mercy and courage. Their humble names are Integrity and Resolve. ..."

Dear Pastor and Friend of the Unborn,
Posted June 13, 200
Royce Dunn, the Founder and National Director of Life Chain, has long been a friend of Operation Rescue/ Operation Save America. He has presented a powerful appeal to the pastors of the greater Charlotte area. Not only is Royce's letter a prophetic call to pastors, but an inspirational reminder to us to remember who we are in Christ and what we are about. See you at the gates of hell in Charlotte - they cannot not prevail!

World Magazine Exposes Randall Terry
Posted June 12, 200
Below is email communication between Brenda Spurlock and Randall concerning the World Magazine article. The article exposing Randall's fundraising ploy is included with a response from Flip. Our heart has always been that Randall repent and return to loving the Lord wholeheartedly. The sacrifices he made in the founding days of Rescue were instrumental in spurring so many of us on to fight the battle. We followed his example to willingly give everything for the Lord. It is as you lose your life that you truly find it. Randall, please lose yourself in Jesus and allow Him to be the lifter of your head.

Storming the gates of hell in Bridgeport, Connecticut
June 7, 2003 - Posted June 12, 2003
Brianna Lynn, 10 months, rescued from death - Why we call  those limiting choice deathscortsThe saints of Operation Rescue/Operation Save America in Connecticut are on the move and Jesus is bringing through them the life saving message of LIFE and LIBERTY. Hallelujah! - ... We went to New Haven to meet Stephen Bennett to go to the Connecticut GAY Pride - New Haven Block Party. The New Haven Green was decorated with rainbow balloons and flags in one corner section. MS. Gingrich, Senator Bill Finch and Congressman Michael Lawlor were present. A couple of hundred people were there. It rained on their parade. We were able to give out many tracts and mini-CD's with Stephen's testimony. Stephen was saved from the homosexual life through a personal relationship with Jesus. After the staff got wind of what we were doing, they spread the word via walkie-talkie. Some were following us and telling attendees not to take our stuff. After that we concentrated more on the perimeter of the event and did pass out more gospel literature and CD's in spite the attempt to silence the truth. Please pray that the Lord would use these tracts and CD's to save the lost.

Former abortion mill employee, now a mother and gentle warrior for Christ! - Words From One that Jesus Saved Out of the Abortion Industry
Updated with photos and more June 4, 2003
Kristen Breedlove and her 6-yr old daughterThis is another powerful story of the love of Jesus and what happens when gentle Christians allow Him to get close to those lost in sin. Theology has to move out of the church house and become biography in the streets. Those people so despised and sued by the world and so despised and defamed by the church, are really the one's our Lord can and does use. He uses "broken" things.

North Carolina Report
By Rusty Thomas
Posted June 4, 200
Just returned from a rather interesting mission's trip from North Carolina. Flip Benham, National Director of Operation Rescue/Operation Save America, moved there about a year ago. Thus Charlotte, North Carolina has been selected as the chosen site for this year's 2003 national event. The dates are July 12-20, 2003 . Excitement is in the air and a genuine expectation is growing throughout America for this particular gathering of the saints to storm the gates of hell. One entire hotel is booked with another about halfway reserved. There has even been a decent response to the vision and mission from local churches and pastors as well. Flip is pessimistically optimistic.

"Mommy, Want Me!"
Here is a term report written by Marissa Phelps, a great young friend of Jesus and a friend of ours. She interviewed us and this is her finished product
Posted June 3, 2003
Can you really say that an unborn child is not a child at even eighteen days old when their heart is already beating and their body is already forming to look like our own? Rev. Philip Benham is the founder of Operation Save America (OSA), was influential in converting Ms. McCorvey (Roe in Roe vs. Wade), baptized Ms. McCorvey, and is a strong voice for unborn children. Rev. Benham said to me, "Marissa, one third of your entire generation is dead because of abortion."3 I don't think we realize how provocative abortion really is and how many lives it has stolen.

The Budget Bill passed with the Rider 11 attached! This, in effect, defunds Planned Parenthood abortion mills in Texas. They can no longer receive our tax money to slay the innocent in the wombs of their mothers. They now have to make an impossible choice, money or abortion. They can no longer have both.

... What do all of these recorded instances of sheer violence and evil have in common? Islam! Why are all these terrorists Muslim? Their false and murderous religion demands them to be so. There is no escaping the link between terrorism and the Islamic faith. Islam is a lie birthed in the very pit of hell that must be defeated before it destroys everyone who will not bow the knee to Allah and his lying prophet Mohammed.

Recently, a poignant poem was circulated that certainly captures the basis for honoring our brave military veterans. The author is unknown. The poem is simply called “It Is The Soldier.” ... Without memorials, without recounting our true history, without acknowledging God, and the sacrifices of American soldiers, we have no accurate concept of where we came from. Thus we surely won’t have the proper vision to know where we are going or what to do once we arrive...

God is Bringing More Ministries to the Charlotte Area
Posted May 24, 2003
Dr. Michael Brown defended our Lord alongside Flip on the Phil Donahue Show back in December, 2002. God is bringing Dr. Brown's ministry to Concord, NC where the National Office has now relocated. Could it be that God is still answering the prayers of David Drye that Concord would be a "city set on a hill."

PRAY! Planned Parenthood Could Be Toast In Texas!
Posted May 21, 2003
Last week the Lord drove out Planned Parenthood from our public library. No sooner than we gave public praise to our Great God and King for this wonderful victory, He is answering even more prayers. In today's paper, it was announced that our state legislators are considering defunding every family planning organization that performs abortions. If it passes, there is a strong possibility that the holocaust in Waco and in other cities in Texas will come to a grinding halt.

God honors those who honor Him (1 Samuel 2:30). Our prayers are being answered so rapidly that it is difficult to sing His praises fast enough. Thank you, Jesus for honoring Ron Brock's faithfulness to your preborn children. You have exonerated and exalted him and he is pointing the whole world toward You! - "

Operation Rescue volunteers also shared the Gospel with McCorvey, and she challenged them with her book of Runes and crystals. "It wasn't exactly Elijah and the prophets of Baal, but in both of our minds it was clearly a case of 'may the true God win,'" wrote McCorvey.

God is Exposing the Abortion Industry!

June hearing set to determine raped Orlando woman's competency
Posted May 20, 20003
Orlando Sentinel article ... "
Gov. Jeb Bush is requesting guardianship for the woman's fetus as well, a position that has sparked anger among women's-advocacy and abortion-rights groups."- Would that G.W. Bush could have the courage of his brother Jeb when it comes to standing strong for our Lord's precious children. Once again we see the abortion industry's desire to kill no matter the cost, no matter the person, no matter the bad publicity. God is exposing the abortion industry for the liar it is. It has never been about "choice" for these murderers. It has always been all about "me."

Memorial Day Services at Abortion Mills
Saturday May 24th

Most of the men, who fought and died for this nation, did so with the sacred intent of passing on a heritage of freedom to their posterity, the unborn. We, in betrayal of their righteous intent, now take that freedom to slay the unborn. This is a national disgrace that mocks, scorns, and betrays the blood of the patriots who died in freedom's cause. In light of this deplorable condition, Operation Save America is calling for a National Memorial Service at the "Gates of Hell" on Saturday, May 24th, 2003. We are asking for willing Pro-life Christians in each city to conduct an official Memorial Day Service in front of their local abortion mill...

Storming the Gates of the Homosexual Community in Charlotte
By Flip Benham
Posted May 17, 2003 (Updated May 21)
Below you will read about our first foray into the homosexual community in the Charlotte area. The reporting is the same and, in some ways even worse, than it is in other major cities. The sodomite agenda has won the day here. The presupposition that one is born a homosexual is all but absolute. This leaves little room for hope for those enslaved by homosexual sin and makes much room for despair. What happened? ...Our report follows this one by Cristina. She will be the one covering our National Event for the Charlotte Observer this summer. You will have a great opportunity to witness the love of our Lord Jesus to her.

Flip Benham's Battle Cry for the Unborn
Founder and director of Operation Rescue calls men to frontlines of abortion war
By Erica J. Parkerson
(Charlotte World)
Posted May 17, 2003
Abortion is a man's issue, according to Benham. He urges pastors to call their men to the battlefront. "They'll come if the pastor will just give them a vision. All he has to do is call them," he said. "Men are free to act like irresponsible thugs, siring children and not raising them. If they were taking four-year-olds to the three abortion mills in Charlotte and ripping them apart, what would our pastors do?" ... "There has to be, in this city, an absolute repentance over this sin," he said. "If we're looking for the power of Almighty God, if we're looking for His mercy to be poured out, then we have to confess our sins." ... Charlotteans will have an opportunity to repent corporately this July 12-20 in Kannapolis, N.C., and on the streets of the Queen City. "We believe God wants to show up and show off in Charlotte. We're going to give Him every opportunity," Benham said. "Christians from all over the country will gather in Charlotte."

"Detente?" by Mike Warren
Posted May 12, 2003
Detente is a term made popular in the 1970s during the cold war between the Soviet Union and the United States. Webster defines detente as, a relaxation of strained relations or tensions. The former U.S.S.R. and the U.S.A. sought common ground, an exchange of cultural missions were pursued. Detente symbolism even extended to space as the two super powers staged the great handshake between cosmonauts and our astronauts while they hurtled through space at 17,000 MPH. On earth negotiators labored to start the dismantling of each of the superpowers’ nuclear arsenal, so that we would move away from the specter of a nuclear holocaust. Mutual peaceful coexistence between enemies has a nice sound to it. Can’t we all just get along?

King Jesus Champions the Gospel and KOs the Devil at the Gates in Granite City
Posted May 17, 2003
Friday, April 25-Flip Benham came to the gates of hell in Granite City this past weekend and proclaimed the truth. Friday there was a victorious fundraising banquet for Small Victories in St. Louis at the Bevo Mill. Flip proclaimed the need for men to fight this abortion battle and the need for people to get out on the front lines. "Jesus through Small Victories and company has saved 635 babies since January 2000, that's incredible," said Pastor Benham. There were over 200 saints in attendance. A free lance photographer gave his heart to Jesus and a few minutes later a love offering was taken for Daniel and Angela's ministry. The Holy Spirit came down and filled this new, baby Christian's heart with the grace of the Holy Spirit and he announced he would match the offering taken… PTL!

St. Louis Radio Station Draws Attention to Hope Clinic
Posted May 17, 2003
Here is a story that appeared on the front page of the Illinois Leader on Wednesday, May 7, 2003. God is exposing the abortion industry for the murderous liar it is on so many different venues that it is impossible to continue the cover-up. The violent, uncaring, lies of abortion mill employees are being exposed over the public airwaves by those who have actually been through the torturous procedure of killing their own child. Here is one case where a precious woman thought she had had an abortion for over three years, only to find out that the abortionist did not find a baby. She wasn't pregnant! He charged her for the abortion anyway. Read this story from a secular newspaper...

It appears that God is everywhere exposing the abortion industry for the liar that it is... Today, we have a front page article in the St. Louis Post Dispatch, exposing abortionist Yogendra Shah for the liar he is. He is being charged with doing an abortion on a woman who wasn't even pregnant. If he has done it once, how many other times do you suppose he has done the very same thing. So much for abortionist Shah's concern for women! He is in it for the dollars and he doesn't care for anyone but himself. ...

Dear Home School Association,
By Flip Benham
Posted May 1, 2003
First we want to commend you on your commitment to homeschooling. We are home school families ourselves. We believe that parents are the best educators of their children. We believe that "family" is the tool God has ordained to raise up and educate our children to take the wonderful theology of the church house and make it biography in the streets. We want to give you an opportunity to sharpen those arrows (children) that our Lord has placed in your quiver. There is no greater heritage that we can pass down to our kids than allowing them to see mom and dad engaged in the battle for the heart and soul of our nation...

Rusty Thomas and Steve Mashburn are right on, as they reveal how God is exposing the abortion industry for the murderous villain it really is.The double homicide of Lacy Peterson and her son Connor (who was eight months old in his mother's womb at the time of his death) has brought the abortion industry to its knees. It has no where to run and no where to hide. The truth is out! The humanity of a child in the womb has now reached its logical legal consequence. A child in the womb of his mother is a human being! Could any revelation be worse news for an industry dependent upon deceit, lies, cover-up, and murder! - Flip 

Laci and Connor Peterson and Schizophrenic Law
By the Rev. Rusty Thomas
Posted April 25, 2003 April 23, 2003
This particular murder case is troubling to those who support abortion on demand on two counts. It first reveals what the abortion industry and its advocates would prefer to remain hidden, the humanity of the baby in the womb. This is especially grievous to them when the media, the law of the land, and the state that enforces the law acknowledges this truth. It calls into question what has been purposely censored for over thirty years since the infamous Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court Decision. If the child in the womb is a human being, a person, like you and me, then the law of the land should protect its life, just like it does for us all.

Witness the latest posturing by the National Organization for fewer and fewer Women over the media coverage of the murder of Laci Peterson and her 8-month old unborn son Connor. NOW is alarmed that Scott Peterson have been charged with double homicide under California's hypocritical penal law. Like over 2 dozen other states, the law classifies the killing of an unborn child in the act of a crime to be murder - except in the case of abortion.

Three Different Colored Gloves - One Fist
By Flip Benham
Posted April 24, 2003 - April 22, 2003
Homosexuality, Islam, and abortion have something in common. They are three different colored gloves covering the same fist. Abortion is a crimson glove (stained with the blood of our pre-born children). Homosexuality is a pink glove (stained with the blood of young men and women given over to their own lust, and stained with the blood of nations that approve of such behavior). Islam is a black glove (stained with the blood of Christians, Jews, and anyone else who dares disagree with the false "god" Allah and his demon possessed prophet Mohammed). Three different colored gloves, yet the same fist. It is the fist of him who robs, kills, and destroys. That's right, I'm talking about the devil himself! We are not unaware of his schemes.

Wasn't Voting Republican Enough?
By Thomas McKnight
Posted April 18, 2003
For three years I had parked next to one of the busiest abortion clinics in the Midwest. Oblivious to the thousands of babies being ripped from their mothers, month after month I strolled into the hospital across the street to take care of business. As a pharmaceutical sales manager I was in dozens of hospitals each month. All the clinics and adjacent buildings look alike after awhile, so how was I to know that babies were being aborted in Granite City? My route to the hospital never took me to the east side of the building so I had an excuse, right? After all I was pro-life. I had even supported a local Crisis Pregnancy Agency and I certainly voted Republican. Wasn't that enough?

I Am Not Ashamed of the American Flag

"Faith logo atop Rhema Church should FEARMy recent trip to Yale University helped clarify my thoughts concerning our flag. When we arrived at the gates of hell (the entrance of Yale) the first thing we ran into were Yalies (students) with 12 large American flags lying on the ground. The flags were carefully placed upon a layer of plastic to show some form of respect for the "Stars and Stripes." The Yalies busied themselves taking AJAX and washing the brand new flags with toothbrushes. We thought this to be very odd and asked the "young and brilliant" exactly what it was that they thought they were doing. They replied that they were cleaning the filth and dirt from the flag of the United States of America. ...

"Given 'Em Heaven in Connecticut"

We had a very busy week as we proclaimed the gospel of Jesus Christ on the streets in Connecticut. Many followed hard after Christ - unashamed of His Word in this wicked and adulterous generation. Hundreds of gospel tracts were given out, the truth was shown throughout our cities and at least three came to know the Lord as Savior! We thank God for having Rev. Flip Benham (OSA National) and John Reyes (OSA Dallas) here visiting and ministering to and with us. ... Sunday- we visited a local Christian Church early to pass out literature and let them know where and when babies were being killed right in our community. This is a part of the "God is Going Back to Church" campaign. We need to alert the churches to our responsibility to rescue the innocent from slaughter as the blood of 44 million babies cries from the ground.

Our small bible study has a message for those involved with NOW. We know that many of you have been hurt.

In this article cited, a question arose about the meaning of submission after Flip used a godly wive's submission to a wicked husband as a comparison of Pastor Mark Holick's godly submission to Rhema Ministerial Alliance International. Below is the question and Flip's response. Flip, In your April 4th article online, you said, "When a husband asks his wife to sell her body to prostitution to support his cocaine habit, she must submit."

Confronting the Church of Jesus Christ in Tulsa, Oklahoma
Report by Flip Benham April 4, 2003
Posted April 6, 2003
"Faith logo atop Rhema Church should FEARMore than 70 saints from across the nation joined their brothers and sisters in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Our purpose was to confront the Church of Jesus Christ with her responsibility to speak for children in the womb who cannot speak for themselves. We also sought to bring an evangelical voice to the one lone abortion mill in Tulsa, believing that the gates of hell cannot prevail against the Church of Jesus Christ. ... Friday morning was our first foray into the city of Tulsa. Rhema cancelled its classes because it knew we were coming into town. Strangely reminiscent of a Proverb in the Bible: "The wicked man flees though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion." Pr 28:1. The spirit of fear manifested itself so often and in so many ways at Rhema Bible College and Rhema Church that it seemed incomprehensible to us that Christians would act in such a way.

A Question Concerning the Anti-War Protests

Flip, What is your opinion, according to the Word, of Pro-Life Christians aligning themselves with the ungodly in protest in the streets against the war and the government?

Letter from Pastors in Tulsa
Posted March 25, 2003
Below is a letter we received from several Pastors in Tulsa, Oklahoma concerned about the upcoming "Operation Restore Justice" event. We have included Flip's letter in response to these men of God. We, the ministers of the gospel representing these churches listed below, on hearing of your planned Tulsa event, felt the need to contact you in advance, expressing our comments and concerns, for your prayerful consideration. First, please note that we are all strongly pro-life, and have been involved in a variety of pro-life activities through the years. Many members of our respective churches are significantly involved with local crisis pregnancy centers, have prayed and demonstrated at the local abortion clinic, and have, in many other ways, put feet to our convictions about the sanctity of life... Nevertheless, we're troubled by the tone of your planned "proclamations" scheduled for March 27-29. ... (emphasis added)

The day of reckoning has finally come. With the help of the United States Justice Foundation, the city of Waco and Planned Parenthood will now be held accountable in a court of law for their blatant disregard for the concerns of Waco's tax paying citizens, their refusal to protect our children from predators, and their violation of our First Amendment rights as peaceful, pro-life Christians to enter a public library.

Here is Rusty's report from the Word in Warfare Event in Waco, TX. We left out the scathing article that was published in the Waco newspaper, but we have included Rusty's response entitled "Is Christianity a Hate Crime?" Way to go, saints in Waco! - On Thursday, March 20th, 50 peaceful, loving Christians went to 9 other gates of our city to speak God's Word over our city. The event was not called the "Gates of Hell" as reported by Miss Ryan, but "Word at the Gates." Some of the gates we went to were legitimate, such as Baylor, Waco High School, Police Station, and City Hall. While others we went to were sin centers and demonic strongholds, such as, a porno shop, the Islamic Center, the homosexual "church" on Clay, Planned Parenthood, and a pro-abortion "church," otherwise known as Lake Shore Baptist Church.

My dear friends, for those of us believing that we won a major political victory by finally by getting the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban passed into law, you are mistaken. The devil is pleased that you feel so victorious. Now you will keep your mouth shut about babies living in the 1st and 2nd trimester. It also provides our spineless Republican representatives with a crumb that they can throw our way demonstrating how "pro-life" they are. What a bunch of baloney! The Partial-Birth Abortion Ban will not save one life. There are other ways to kill third trimester babies. Anyway, who is going to oversee that this procedure is not done; Nobody!

The Streets and the Legislature

We will be joining Father Francis in Saratoga Springs, New York this August 17 -23, 2003. Theology will become biography at the four abortion mills in Saratoga Springs at the height of horse racing season. It will be an awesome time in the Lord. - Christian, are you paying attention? Your church began in the streets and was in the streets, markets, public squares, catacombs, highways and byways for 300 years before it got to build church buildings.However your sanctuary is a heated building which tends to rivet you to pews and comfort zones. The devil concedes buildings as long as he can have all the rest. Where does the rubber meet the road? In the streets. Satan tries to intimidate you from shouting the Good News from housetops. He wants to keep you in your churchy comfort zone. Defy him. To win the hearts and minds and votes of legislators and destroy the culture of death, first win the Streets. As did New Testament Christians in the Acts of the Apostles.

They (NOW and Planned Parenthood) forget that our Father owns the cattle on a thousand hills - they can't bankrupt Him!

God brought a remnant of five churches to stand, World Harvest, Our Lady Queen of Peace, New Birth, Spirit Life Worship Center, and New Life Assembly of God. Over eighty saints and five pastors stood in the gap for the unborn. But it was another day of bloodshed in Granite City as thirty-six baby boys and girls were killed. Pastor Flip Benham, OSA director, led the Church of Jesus Christ to storm the gates of hell, with Scripture being proclaimed, praise and worship, and prayer. The weather was very bitter, freezing temperatures, ice, rain and snow pelted the saints as they stood in the gap pleading to these mothers for their children’s lives. 2 babies were saved from death. PTL!

This is a piece of legislation with the courage and the grit to upend the entire abortion industry. Martin brought this up before the Legislature in North Dakota and I am in absolute agreement with him. This is the kind of legislation that draws the line, just like Elijah of old: "...How long will you waiver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal is God, follow him." This is how Elijah rebuilt the altar of God that had been lying in ruins since Jereboam had become king. People, you can't waiver between two opinions. It is God's way or the devil's. It is life or death. God give us more Elijah's like our good friend Martin Wishnatsky! - Flip

Back in October, on Halloween, about 75 saints from Palm Bay and the surrounding area took to the streets and participated in Word in Warfare (reading the entire Bible out loud at the very gates of hell). They were peppered all over the county at various places such as the abortion mill, a building housing a homosexual website, a XXX video store, several strip clubs, high schools, the police department and city council chambers. ... The saints were commended by a number of people who were blessed to witness such a visible display of faith. One lady in particular approached Pastor Sam and asked how they knew to come to the city offices. She declared, "You don't know how much you are needed here. There is such a spirit of adultery in the mayor's and city manager's offices." She never explained exactly what she meant by that statement, however, everyone rejoiced that the Lord led his saints to the places HE knew needed a witness!

Saturday- Late-term mothers already in mill by 6:30 a.m. At approximately 7:20 a.m. another "botched" abortion happened within 50 minutes of this couple’s return from the day previous, a young black woman was rushed quietly in full view of proclaimers covered in sheets and on a gurney, she wasn’t breathing... she appeared "lifeless" ... Several of the deathscorts were on hand to make sure abortion was the only choice there was for the moms and dads going in to the clinic. Proclaimers were sharing the gospel and offering other options to these parents, and that must have hit a nerve with two of the deathscorts, who attacked four pro-lifers, including a 5 yr. old girl. The Granite City Police were called and two escorts were arrested and taken in squad cars to the police station. ... There were 3 babies saved from death today. As a couple sat in their car on the back lot, Karen offered them help and prayed for them. A few minutes later they started up their car and left! PTL!

The 30th Memorial of Roe v. Wade
By the Rev. Flip Benham
On Wednesday, January 22, 2003, we will be mourning 30 years of "legalized" child-killing in America. Over 45 million children slaughtered by a lie called "choice." For many, this will be a great day of rejoicing. It will be one where they will parade "our national sin" arrogantly in Washington, D.C. Planned Parenthood, NOW, NAF, NARAL, ad nauseam, are gearing up for a spectacular 30th anniversary of bloodshed in our nation's capital. They can't wait to frame the argument as a woman's rights issue - totally eclipsing the rights of small children in the womb. We must not let them get away with it!

These startling statistics are well beneath the radar of Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings, and Dan Rather, but they should be greatly encouraging for those of us standing for life. As you will see, the battle for the lives of little baby boys and girls in their mother's wombs is being won as gentle Christians are living out their faith in the streets of their cities. That's right! During the administration of the most pro-abortion President our nation has ever had, the number of abortions performed in America, the number of abortion mills, the number of doctors performing abortions plummeted dramatically. William Jefferson Clinton did everything in his power, but build an abortion mill in the West Wing of the White House, to aid and abet the abortion industry. Still, the numbers plummeted and they are plummeting today! How can this be?

Media Miracle on the 30th Memorial of Roe v. Wade
PostedvJanuary 24, 2003
In 21 cities across the nation, Christians who regularly bring the Gospel of Christ to the gates of hell (the local abortion mill) were inundated with media. These quiet, gentle, warriors who faithfully give mothers a real choice outside these death camps were given a platform on January 22, 2003, by none other than God Himself. There was a profound sense of remorse portrayed in the media coverage that Roe v. Wade was sliding down the slippery slope to oblivion. In much the same way that slavery was erased from our national psyche, so abortion will also go. No one today would say that it is a matter of "choice" whether or not he owned slaves. Slavery was and is a national travesty and an embarrassment. One day, child-killing will be thought of in the same way.

Operation Rescue unashamedly takes up the cause of pre-born children in the name of Jesus Christ. We employ only biblical principles. The Bible is our foundation; the Cross of Christ is our strategy; the repentance of the Church of Jesus Christ is our ultimate goal. As the Church changes her heart toward unborn children, God Himself will hear from heaven, forgive our sin, and bring healing to our land.

Who Determines the 'Official' Definition of 'Pro-Life?'

Capitol Hill (CNSNews.com) - Tennessee Republican Bill Frist hit only one small speed bump along his road of ascension to the post of Senate majority leader when questions were raised about his record on abortion. But the disagreement points to the larger question of, "Who determines the 'official' definition of 'pro-life?'"

A short commentary by Flip concerning the battle for the lives of unborn children in America. It was written in response to a CNSNEWS.com article, Who Determines the 'Official' Definition of 'Pro-Life?' ... Steve Lefemine and Judy Brown are hitting the nail on the head. There can be no compromise, no "reaching across the aisle," no "middle ground" in the abortion battle. Abortion is a Gospel issue and neither side will tolerate the other. Yes, it is a physical manifestation of the battle between two seeds - the "seed of the serpent" verses the "seed of the woman." Genesis 3:15

During a break in play, the team and supporters took a thirty minute trip to the Tarpon Springs home of abortionist, George Nauert. Traffic on the busy country road slowed as the graphic ministry of "Malachi" reached out to soften hearts. A large yellow arrow with the word ABORTIONIST pointed to the immense estate purchased with the blood of thousands of innocent pre-born children. Nauert owns four abortion mills, including the Sarasota Women's Health Center where Matthew "headbanger" Kachinas continues in Nauert's stead.

Many of you were a brilliant testimony of Jesus' love to the Cathedral of Hope during this summer's event in Dallas. This MCC "Church" is the largest homosexual congregation of its kind. The work is strong in Dallas and this article should bless you tremendously.

American Family Association (AFA) Wins Another One!

The old saying goes, "The wheels of justice move exceedingly slow and grind exceedingly fine." Ordinarily when we Christians are found living out our faith in the streets, and are thrown in jail, the court system generally grinds us into pixie dust. Not this time!

Encouragement From Another Pro-Life Front

Posted January 8, 2003
I just saw the OSA website tonight. I must admit, I am sorry I have not found it before. I certainly will pass this along to my LINK friends and contacts all over the US. I am sure they will find it very interesting and educational. Of course, they are all pro-life, and wishing to adopt or have adopted. Many of their children would have been aborted if not for their hearts and homes being opened to them. Just like my little five year old Taylor! Whose birthmother and father were discussing abortion before she was born. Flip, you have seen that child, what a blessing she is - Smart and beautiful. Growing with a strong Biblical foundation, and loves Jesus. ...

By Pastor Stephen Mashburn

We reported on our Wichita voicemail ministry Thursday on the shift of cable news with MSNBC and CNN sinking dramatically in viewers and ratings while Fox News and Rush soar.

SARASOTA, FLORIDA: Abortionist Matthew J. Kachinas was cited for two counts of battery with additional charges pending. On Friday morning, December 27, Kachinas arrived at the Sarasota Womens Health Center, 5025 N. Tamiami Trail, to perform his bi-weekly ritual of state sanctioned child sacrifice. While still in his vehicle, Kachinas was once again invited into the freedom offered through the forgiveness of his sins upon repentance through the sacrificial blood of Jesus the Messiah. Kachinas exited his vehicle in a fervor. Obviously enraged, Kachinas, cursing, walked directly toward Linda McGlade who had delivered the Gospel message of hope and love to the abortionist. Stopping within centimeters of her face, he clearly and pointedly whispered several times the words, "I'm going to kill you!" Then ...
