This is the “ stuff that happens” when God's people show up for the battle and pick a fight with Goliath

This is the “ stuff that happens” when God's people show up for the battle
OSA St. Louis and Granite City IL ~correspondent Angela Michael
April 30- May 1, 2005

1 Samuel 17:45-46: “David said to the Philistine, ‘You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will hand you over to me, and I'll strike you down and cut off your head…' ”

The towering billboard of Hope abortion clinic which advertised child-killing across interstate 70 came up missing from our view as Operation Save America Director Rev. Flip Benham led the charge as saints stormed the gates of Granite City, Illinois. See what God can do when you become the salt and the light and expose evil, God works miracles. Little David took on Goliath, he ran right into him.

Lifesavers' numbers swelled as Operation Save America Director Flip Benham lead the charge at these gates. Brother John preached the gospel to mothers and fathers as they stood in line to sign away their children's lives. Focus on Missions missionaries surrounded the sidewalks outside this death mill as song and praise and prayers went forth. Two post-abortive women held signs, “I regret my abortion” and “Women need love not abortion” at both entrances for mothers to view. The Granite City chief of police brought a small group of law enforcement students to supervise proclaimers executing their Firs Amendment rights outside these gates of hell. Some of the students commented they didn't agree with abortion either. Eden Theological Seminary “Called to lead...straight to Hell” stood for the wicked while holding their purple signs “pro-faith, pro-family, poor-choice”.

We were looking forward to a press conference and we believed that some media would come. What is going on at these abortion mills particularly at the Hope Clinic for Women but in abortion mills all across the country is particularly the Child Predator situation that we're dealing with. Where adult males are taking underage young ladies in to have abortions at these abortion places to cover up their sin. “The wages of sin is death,” somebody is going to have to pay that penalty and a little baby dies.

Now, Hope clinic is a mandatory reporter. The law in Illinois states any underage child that is having sex must be reported and proper authorities such as Family and Children Services are to investigate this. The Hope(less) Clinic is not reporting this or any other crime that is going on to these children. So what we were going to do is expose this whole thing on Saturday morning at 9:00 at a press conference. Lo and behold, guess who doesn't show up? All of the media, and there's a reason for that. They have no intention in exposing this kind of evil because it bears truthful witness to the horror of the abortion industry. It also exposes the cover-up of groups like Planned Parenthood, NOW, and the Hope Clinic for Women. They are covering up and providing cover for pedophiles. It tells us in the Bible that a truthful witness saves lives. But the Hope abortion mill is its own kingdom and it rules by its own authority and my people love it this way. They are the lawbreakers and we are the law keepers, Proverbs 28:4. The church sits by silently and gives it seal of approval with their silence.

It tells us in the Bible that a truthful witness saves lives. The only way that we're going to find out about this child predator nonsense that is going on in these abortion mills is through a little Christian station that came out and did their interview with us. This organization had every desire to be truthful to the Lord and as it's truthful to the Lord it will save lives.

Angela & Flip doing an interview

A camera crew arrived and began interviewing and filming. They noticed all the young and out-of-state mothers lining up to kill their babies.

These investigators were interviewing Rosemary Mulligan who is up in the IL legislature and she is the representative, a Republican by the way, that has introduced this bill, HB 2492, to ban ultrasounds, particularly this woman that stands outside the Hope abortion Clinic in a Winnebago. Well, it's just amazing that a sonogram and a Winnebago has become the most dangerous thing that could ever come to an abortion mill. And of course it's true because when mothers see that little baby boy or girl in their womb chances are very slim that they're gonna go in to that abortion mill. So what they want to do is simply legislate Christians once again, off of the streets so that they can kill with impunity, so that they can kill in peace. “Those who forsake the law praise the wicked” it tells us in Proverbs 28:4 “but those who keep the law resist them.”

But, the fact of the matter is you see, the government is being used and the police department is being used by wicked men to cover up the nasty stuff that's going on in that abortion mill. They're trying to legislate the Gospel off the streets through this phony baloney. They had Planned Parenthood write this up as a matter of fact because they didn't want to draw attention that the Hope Clinic was doing this. They wrote this legislation up for Rosemary Mulligan to come out against this ultrasound to take you off the streets. So I think that tells you everything about this. You are seeing the battle for what it really is.

It was amazing that God arranged some appointments.

Angela performing ultrasound on save

Three mothers chose life this day and viewed their 4-week old and 6-week old pre-born babies on the ultrasound machine auditioning for their lives. There were tears of joy and relief inside the ultrasound van. Another family from Springfield , Illinois came back out of the abortion mill and told lifesavers they didn't kill their child and thanked us and left this family extermination camp.

Becky and her three and a half month baby girl with a head full of hair stopped by the mill to let proclaimers see her baby and get some help with baby supplies. A divine appointment, the camera crew interviewed her and asked her what changed her mind last fall from aborting her baby girl. She explained how her aunt gave her the money for the abortion but she ran into Angela and they got to see her lil girl dancing on the ultrasound screen, “There's no way I was gonna kill my baby after seeing that,” she said. She continued to tell everyone how happy she was that she had her baby and it isn't easy but it's worth it, as she explained she struggles to care for her baby and school work and a part-time job, but she still enjoys getting to go to prom and this June she will graduate.

Later that afternoon we hosted the annual Small Victories Walk for the Babies 2005.

Walk for the Babies

It was a beautiful day for a walk, we enjoyed a box lunch and a great turnout of supporters while Mercy's Child played praise and worship music. A little girl even handed Angela her piggy bank full of coins to help save babies. Rev. Flip Benham led the one mile walk along with KJSL morning talk-show hosts Tim n' Al.

Pastor Ralph Hebblethwaite, Flip, and the Church of St. Louis

I wish the whole church could see the battle like we have an opportunity to see the battle and maybe it would put alarm in them and that they would come out to the gates of hell with us. Because you know what, we haven't seen yet in the United States of America what God will do through a church that would just serve Him and fear him and fear no man. I believe that God is really looking for someone to stand in the gap so that He can grant us mercy. But if there's no one that's gonna stand in the gap we are going to suffer the consequences of our error and turning our back on Him and we just need to remember that statement in Proverbs “All who hate Me” says the Lord “love death”, Proverbs 8:36. Amen

Psalms 37:1-7 “Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.” verses 32-33 “The wicked lie in wait for the righteous, seeking their very lives; but the Lord will not leave them in their power or let them be condemned when brought to trial.”

Please read this addendum from the St. Louis Dispatch. We discovered that corrupt police departments are obtaining money through federal grants via Homeland Security to place cameras in abortion mills.

Bank robbery suspect taken into custody

Michael Heil
Of the Suburban Journals

Granite City Press Record

An area man who allegedly robbed TheBANK of Edwardsville on Nameoki Road on Wednesday is now behind bars at the Granite City Police Department.

The GCPD is not releasing the name of the suspect until charges are filed.

"There are expected to be federal charges because it was a bank robbery," said Maj. Richard Miller of the GCPD. "We've wrapped up our investigation. It's been turned over to the FBI."

The federal charges were expected to be filed on Friday.

The suspect, caught on a surveillance camera inside the bank, was arrested about 3 a.m. Thursday at a motel in Highland by Highland police. Granite City police took the suspect into custody about 4:30 a.m.

The arrest was made after the Bond County Sheriff's Department located a vehicle about 6 p.m. Thursday that had a connection to the suspect.

"That vehicle helped lead to his arrest, along with the surveillance camera photo that brought forth more information on the suspect,” Miller said, adding that the vehicle was not used in the robbery.

Miller would not say how much money was stolen or if it was recovered after the suspect was arrested. The suspect, 36, resides in the unincorporated area of Collinsville known as State Park.

According to Miller, the suspect walked in the bank just before 2 p.m. wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and demanded money from a female teller. The money was put in a bag that the suspect had in his possession. At the time of the robbery, no customers were inside the bank.

"He inferred he had a weapon," Miller said. "He had his hands in his pocket like he had a weapon."

The suspect fled on foot east on Pontoon Road . Granite City police, with the assistance of the Sheriff's Department, the Illinois State Police and the FBI, combed the area for hours. A helicopter was also involved in the search. Authorities found the suspect's sweatshirt near the bank.

During the time of the search, Frohardt Elementary School and St. Elizabeth Catholic School were locked down for about 45 minutes.

Miller said the lockdowns were not initiated by the GCPD, but by the schools.

"We are always going to error on the side of caution when protecting our children," said Frohardt Principal Virgil Kambarian. "I was concerned about the children walking home."

Kambarian said he was on his cell phone with Granite City Police Chief Dave Ruebhausen shortly after the bank robbery.

"He assured me that it was safe for our walkers. He said there were numerous police in the area," Kambarian said.

Ironically, the bank robbery occurred on the same day as an article in the Press-Record in which Miller talked about his department's desire to acquire Internet surveillance cameras to aid officers responding to calls.

A compatible surveillance system would allow officers to see an incident in progress through cameras installed in their cars.

"That kind of technology could be part of the future of law enforcement in our area. We would like to see that kind of technology in Granite City in the near future," Miller said.

The GCPD received a $96,000 Illinois Emergency Management Agency grant last year to pay for Motorola MW800 series computers now installed in 11 squad cars. Funding for a surveillance camera system would most likely come from another grant, Miller said.

The department has an in-house camera system that allows supervisors to view the Hope Clinic for Women. The Tri-City Regional Port District recently received a grant for surveillance system that Miller hopes will be compatible to the department's.

Last Saturday, April 30, 2005 Flip addressed the Granite City police on why they were doing nothing to stop the sexual predators bringing their obvious under-age victims to Hope Clinic for abortions except put mothers in squad cars. The Granite City Police answered, "OUR HANDS ARE TIED. WE CAN DO NOTHING." Now we have the official GCPD tell us that they have a camera inside the abortion mill with a live feed to the GCPD.

How dare they claim that they can do nothing about the under-age pregnant girls being brought for abortions out of one side of their mouth when they have a camera inside abortion mill and see every single one of these poor girls. They can see these girls and they know their age is young enough to be a victim of child rape under state law. They can no longer deny their enabling of child rapists. They have publicly admitted they see these girls on camera. The Granite City Police can only claim they refuse to do their duty to enforce the law. The GCPD cares more about the blood money from the Hope abortion mill than they do children or the law. The rank hypocrisy literally stinks to high heaven.
