Frontlines in Florida
My event invitation was titled “Victory Celebration & A Time of Thanksgiving!” It was also called “Operation Save Central Florida”. But, I must charge that it was so much more than we even began to realize. The warfare for our nation’s future has probably never been more clearly expressed than in the battle ensuing for the state following the mid-term elections. And as Florida goes, so goes America.
We started the event in a praise service outside the closed Planned Parenthood clinic where we heard a message from Rusty Thomas, Operation Save America, who visited specifically for the purpose of celebrating the closure of two abortion clinics where Pro-Life Action Ministries, Central Florida has ministered for years: Planned Parenthood and EPOC. Rusty Thomas had led in the spiritual warfare at both clinics in the past, so it was our intention to minister to his family in their recent loss of their youngest son, Jeremiah Thomas, and to show that although this battle had cost Jeremiah everything, his life was not in vain. In fact, in the sharing of his charge, Operation Save America has heard from 50 nations who are taking up the baton that was dropped when this passionate young man whom his mom, Glenda shared with amazement, smiled through the ordeal of bone cancer decimating his body. I want to share this charge here, as well:
During a service held at Victorious Living Fellowship, Rusty jokingly shared that he was now preaching in sequels and that the message, Upon This Rock, Part Two, had first been shared in Spokane, Washington.
I’m still trying to process the message, personally, so that I can apply it passionately.
After our service, at VLF, we headed out to one of two remaining abortion clinics here in Central Florida. Ironically, we praised God there as well! You see, in Christian warfare, praise is the victory! The reason for this is that battle is the Lord’s, and always has been. Rusty divided us into groups: prayer warriors, sidewalk counselors, and praise team, and we stood and ministered, pleading for the lives of the babies who were being murdered inside at that very hour. God heard our praise and one woman changed her mind: her baby was saved! We celebrate each one, but we cannot leave the battle until Personhood is restored in America. The life of our nation is at stake!
Even now, two political races are undecided in Florida. And as I shared in “Revive U.S. Again“, the election was/is about abortion. Either the votes are too close to count, or election fraud has occurred in our governor and Senatorial races. If you look at the platforms of the candidates, you will clearly see what is at stake. Florida Senator Bill Nelson: I Will Only Vote for a Pro-Abortion Supreme Court Nominee and more; and Rick Scott, who has made significant efforts for the pro-life movement including prohibiting human embryonic stem cell research and opposing federal abortion funding.
The other race at stake for Governor is also obviously about abortion. On the one side, DeSantis is staunchly prolife. Gillum, who doesn’t realize that he is running in agreement with Margaret Sanger’s desire for his race, originally called “The Negro Project” is pro-choice.
The battle lines are drawn; pre-born babies’ lives are at stake: Where will you stand? Will you take up Jeremiah’s baton and run the race that is set for us as a Christian American?
If Rusty Thomas is right and the abortion clinics where innocent blood is shed are included in the gates of Hell according to Jesus Christ, then I compel you to join me on the right side of eternity. Choose Life! First, accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Next, help America to return to the original foundation of our nation: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
