before the sun goes down

"Be of good courage, and let us behave ourselves valiantly for our people, and for the cities of our God: and let the LORD do that which is good in His sight" (I Chronicles 19:13).

O Earth, Earth, Earth, Hear the Word of the LORD!

How did you spend your Earth Day?  

I spent the morning standing and preaching publicly against pollution.  WHAT POLLUTION?  One of the worst kinds.  The shedding of the blood of the innocent.

God talks about blood pollution:
 "And shed INNOCENT BLOOD, even the BLOOD of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and THE LAND WAS POLLUTED WITH BLOOD" (Psalm 106:38).

 "Wherefore I poured my fury upon them FOR THE BLOOD that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they HAD POLLUTED IT:" (Ezekiel 36:18).

 "Gilead is a city of them that work iniquity, and is POLLUTED WITH BLOOD" (Hosea 6:8).

I was standing at the edge of the property of Planned Parenthood, the site where people sacrifice their sons and their daughters to the god of Self.  

SO there I was on Earth Day, that some parent may not deprive their preborn child of a Birthday.

It was an honour to stand at the gates of death, and use Earth Day as a springboard to speak on behalf of the Maker of Heaven and Earth.  There were so many verses to use.  Here are a few:

To call aloud, "O Earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD!" (Jeremiah 22:29).  

To make it clear that "The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein" (Psalm 24:1).  

That "shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?" (Genesis 18:25).  

That He "hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness..." (Acts 17:31).  

That "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

"...That the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world" (1 John 4:14). 

"This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief" (1 Timothy 1:15).

"For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker" (Psalm 95:3-6).

There were a good number of hymns to sing at the mill this morning too.  Here's a favorite verse:

"This is my Father's world
Oh let me ne'er forget
That though the wrong 
Seems oft so strong
God is the Ruler yet

This is my Father's world
The battle is not done
Jesus Who died shall be satisfied
And earth and heaven be one."

The battle is NOT done.  There is STILL time to win a battle before the sun goes down.

Perhaps you are being moved by the Spirit to stand with me, and engage in the battle for lives and souls.  Let me know!  God's people are needed to line the sidewalks outside this mill and speak in the name of Jesus Christ, in the cause of the poor and needy, for the sake of the good of the very souls who pursue their children's demise!
