It's A Winner!

It's A Winner!
At the National League Championship Series

Written by Daniel & Angela Michael

King Jesus hits a grand-slam with over 55,000 baseball fans. Bases were loaded in front of Busch Stadium with a small remnant as they brought the truth and delivered God's mail to the streets of St. Louis, Missouri.

God's remnant outside Busch Stadium

55,000 people descended on this historic ballpark for the very last game ever to be played there as a new stadium is being erected. Despite the order to evacuate, and twice being threatened with arrest by Sergeant Dan, many Bibles and flyers with Isaiah 1:15,17 “When you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide my eyes from you; even if you offer many prayers, I will not listen. Your hands are full of blood…Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.” and “Can You Hear the Babies' Cry” were passed out, and Jesus' name lifted up. We were told that our signs were “offensive” but what is really offensive is that society has allowed the legalized murder of innocent lil' boys and girls for over 32 years. God bless Lieutenant Anthony Russo for coming to our rescue as we were threatened with arrest. “These people have a First Amendment right to be out here. Leave them alone.”

Sgt. Dan ordering gentle warriors to "keep moving with those signs"

It's amazing how the truth can create such a fury. Galatians 4:16 “Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?” Local radio stations and passers-by were up in arms because of those graphic signs. White males between the ages of 25-50 were the most vocal opponents. City officials and local law enforcement just wanted to put on a good baseball game. It's all about money. We prayed for favor and God blessed us as we were able to stand for the oppressed and the fatherless for almost 3 hours Praise the Lord!

Sergeant Dan those signs are offensive you troublemakers

As former Cardinals announcer Jack Buck would say “Go Crazy” people did just that as the truth stumbled into the streets Isaiah 59:14 ‘Truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter.” One woman said, “Glad you're here” and a man told us, “God bless you.” Others weren't so kind. Many people cursed us and mocked us. A woman came up to us in a rage and questioned, “How many babies have you adopted?” “We have helped over 20 couples adopt babies that were scheduled to die.” She replied, “Well, I hope you adopt a thousand.” One professing Christian woman said that she was “intensely” pro-life but that we “were going about this the wrong way.” It's okay not to be politically correct.

"There's an ordinance against offensive signs".. Oh really?

It's a shame when you can have 55,000 attend a baseball game and you can't get 55 people to stand outside an abortion mill where babies are scheduled to die that day, that kills over 10,000 babies a year. In 1966 when this stadium opened Daniel's father took him and his siblings to the only All-Star game that was ever played in St. Louis. It was a very hot day that summer in July, but you know what? No babies were dying, because abortion was not even heard of. How could a nation that was once so great ever legalize killing it's own children?

We are blessed to have our quiver full of children and brothers and sisters in Christ that have the courage to stand outside Busch Stadium and the Hope abortion Clinic in Granite City, IL and be the Elijah's and cry out for injustice to expose evil and do good. To hold the standard higher. I believe that's why God has blessed us with almost 1,500 babies saved and many moms and dads brought to Christ since January 2000.

So to those who do stand for the unborn, thank you and be encouraged, and to those who don't, remember “The gates of hell cannot prevail against the Church of Jesus Christ.” There are over 2400 churches in the St. Louis area, and over 73 across the Mississippi River in Granite City, IL. But the Church must show up! Abortion goes on because the American Church allows it to go on. Silence kills!

The St. Louis Cardinals' 2005 season- and Busch Stadium is history. The Redbirds lost 5-1 to Houston on Wednesday in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series, closing the book on a 100-win season, the Cardinals' bid for their 17th NL pennant, and the team's 40-year-old ballpark.

Within weeks the wrecking ball will swing at the ballpark. This stadium was made great because of the families, players, and history behind it. The same can be said of our nation.

“The family has always been the cornerstone of American society. Our families nurture, preserve, and pass on to each succeeding generation the values we share and cherish, values that are the foundation for our freedoms. In the family we learn our first lessons of God and man, love and discipline, rights and responsibilities, human dignity and human frailty. We cannot diminish the value of one category of human life- the unborn- without diminishing the value of all human life…There is no cause more important.” ~ Ronald Reagan

Below is the flyer that was handed out at the stadium


“Deliver those who are drawn towards death. And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, ‘Surely we did not know this,' does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?”

                                                            Proverbs 24:11-12

Many, many women and young girls never call or walk into a resource center for help to save their baby. They are scared and desperate and many knowingly or unwittingly call the “‘HOPE' Clinic for Women” in Granite City, IL, which is a modern day Auschwitz, a death chamber for all unborn babies!! This clinic, only 35 minutes away, is one of the worst, most heinous abortion clinics in the country!

It specializes in partial-birth abortion! The babies are born alive, feet first, and then killed, a two - three day procedure.
* Babies are killed up to 9 months!
* No parental notification or consent is necessary in IL – so most of the babies that are killed are from Missouri , and from the surrounding 6 or 7 states!
* No waiting period like in Missouri.
* Over 20 lawsuits for malpractice and negligence have been filed in the last few years.

What can you do? Just like today, take your time and physically step out – but go to the abortion clinic, to the battlefront, to the “gates of hell” to help these people and to SAVE BABIES!
You can           * talk to the girls as they walk in …
                        * hold signs and pray…
                        * just stand! … Your very presence will make some change their mind and leave!

Because, without you standing outside this clinic, 150-200 babies are killed every week and countless women are scarred mentally and some physically for the rest of their lives!

This abortion clinic is open Tuesday through Saturday, 7:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. ( Tuesday and Thursday alternate every week, opening at 1:00p.m. till 10:00p.m. for late-term abortions … Tuesday, October 25 will open at 1:00p.m.)

Currently there are so few that know what goes on over there, and that take the time and step out, especially during the week. Some mornings, hours go by and no-one is there to help the women and men and to save babies!

But you are different… You care…
Your heart beats for the unborn!        You hear the babies' cry…
