Happy New Year, 2010!
I read an article recently from cbnnews.com that was titled: Tea Party Activists 'People of the Year?' I found it to be a very interesting article describing why they would be dubbed such an honor. It got me thinking and my thoughts kept going and I felt I should blog them down.
I'm so proud of my fellow Americans for raising their voices when they don't agree with policies in Washington, or health care run by our government. There's so many ways many Americans in 2009 blasted their voices, through petitions, rodeo's, county fairs, blogs, youtube, rallies, phone calls to politicians, town halls, etc. I don't think we as a Free nation should stay quiet when we disagree with what's going on around us. I will also say as a follower of Jesus, and to my fellow Christian brothers and sisters we should not stay silent either when we disagree with what's going on around us. Allow me to explain.
We all know as 'word on the street' goes that a 'revolution' is coming to our nation and world. It's not whether or not you will or won't be apart of it. It matters where your heart is during that time. The same goes with any issue. We as the Bride of Christ are preparing the earth for His return and in doing so we do not remain silent or quiet. I'm talking about injustices. Abortion, sex slave trade, pornography, 'the healthcare bill', the list goes on and on. We know as we read in our Bibles what is wrong and what is right in the eyes of God. Most of the world may have a concept of right and wrong, but not really knowing for sure if what they do or don't do is right or wrong. Being led of the Holy Spirit we lead by example. It's not about overthrowing our government/authorities, it's about prayer. It's where a true revolution starts.
God says: "if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land" 2Chron. 7:14
We are going to see "Christianity" change in one generation. More and more of our young people are looking for something real, something powerful, and something that will revolutionize the ways of our culture. They see the indecencies, the inconsistencies, the religious ways that control and restrain freedom, and the see a lack of power from the church. They want to see:
Jesus departed from there, skirted the Sea of Galilee, and went up on the mountain and sat down there. 30 Then great multitudes came to Him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others; and they laid them down at Jesus’ feet, and He healed them. 31 So the multitude marveled when they saw the mute speaking, the maimed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.
32 Now Jesus called His disciples to Himself and said, “I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now continued with Me three days and have nothing to eat. And I do not want to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way.” 33 Then His disciples said to Him, “Where could we get enough bread in the wilderness to fill such a great multitude?” 34 Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” And they said, “Seven, and a few little fish.” 35 So He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. 36 And He took the seven loaves and the fish and gave thanks, broke them and gave them to His disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitude. 37 So they all ate and were filled, and they took up seven large baskets full of the fragments that were left. 38 Now those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39 And He sent away the multitude, got into the boat, and came to the region of Magdala (Matthew 15)
(Acts 2) 1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord[a] in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.” 41 Then those who gladly[g] received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. 42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. 44 Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, 45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need. 46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church[h] daily those who were being saved.
(Acts 17) “These who have turned the world upside down have come here too. 7 Jason has harbored them, and these are all acting contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying there is another king—Jesus.” 8 And they troubled the crowd and the rulers of the city when they heard these things. 9 So when they had taken security from Jason and the rest, they let them go.
(Revelation 4) After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.” 2 Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. 3 And He who sat there was[a] like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. 4 Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns[b] of gold on their heads. 5 And from the throne proceeded lightnings, thunderings, and voices.[c] Seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are the[d] seven Spirits of God. 6 Before the throne there was[e] a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back. 7 The first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle. 8 The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying:
“ Holy, holy, holy,[f]
Lord God Almighty,
Who was and is and is to come!”
9 Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:
11 “ You are worthy, O Lord,[g]
To receive glory and honor and power;
For You created all things,
And by Your will they exist[h] and were created.”
The list goes on and on, and on, and on.
Our youth, our old and young adults, of different cultures and races are looking for hope and a promise in the midst of the atrocities that afflict our societies. When we humble ourselves and pray and seek first the Kingdom of Heaven, the face of Christ we will see things change.
We're not fighting, struggling, or wrestling with our leaders, men, women, or youth around us. What we wrestle with is: "against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore..." (eph. 6)
Next to prayer needs to be works of justice done. Feeding the poor, clothing them, loving on them. The orphans need homes no matter if they're handicapped or healthy and yet rejected. Many are broken hearted need hope, the women and children involved with inhumane acts from the human trafficking crimes need to be rescued and their oppressors need to be exposed. The ones who are sick in body need to be anointed and in the name of Jesus commanded to be healed, prayed for, and encouraged by the word of the Lord that their is healing and deliverance. Those in jail need to be visited, without being shown love and mercy and that there is a better way how can we expect their hearts to change. How can we expect to see a change in our world if we're not going from our place of prayer out into the world and preaching the good news, setting the captives free, coming up against all hell breaking loose and not caring a bit and marching forward until every soul on this earth knows and has encountered the all powerful, all knowing, all loving, all merciful, all just, all mighty GOD?
There's a revolution coming that's spiritual and the darkness is growing but so is the light. How will you change your world? Will you be like the "Tea Party" and raise your voice to God and to injustices and say We will not stand for injustice, we will not remain silent, and we will march forward until Christ returns through hell and high water. We will go into the foreign lands and know we're risking our lives and knowing we may not go back home alive but knowing we have risked our lives to save someone elses.
When you see injustices being done go to God and cry out and then go to the place of injustice as the Holy Spirit leads and see to it that you did something about it and did not remain silent.
The Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force! Our weapons are not carnal but are mighty in God for the pulling down of spiritual strongholds in high places!

On this glorious and beautiful day here in KC, Missiouri there will be a parade marching through downtown. Many people will take this day with friends and family and get "free St. Patrick Day specials", "half priced beer", jolly hues of greens, irish Shamrocks displayed all around, beaded necklaces glimmering green. Down in San Antonio, Tx they will dye the San Antonio River along the River Walk, downtown, green. They will dye their hair green, and their beer. Many Irish pubs will be up in celebration with beer, and silly men and women laughing about stupid things, and trying their best to make an Irish accent come out of their southeren born mouths.
Yes there will be silly and grand celebrations the world over and many will have "stories" to tell. I have a very special story to tell you my friends. My story does not include a leprachaun, or a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. This is the real story of Saint Patrick.
William J. Federer
Historian, Speaker & Author
He was born in 389 A.D., during the time of the Roman Empire's decay: immigrants flooded the borders; the national language of Latin was displaced; the underfunded military stretched across the world; rampant sexual immorality existed; and city centers were abandoned. Additionally, unbearable taxes, a burgeoning national debt and welfare rolls, and an excessive amount of government jobs plagued the Empire.
Patrick’s home was the coastal town of Bonavern, Taberniae, Britain. His father, Calpurnius, was a civil magistrate and a deacon, and his grandfather was a minister in the Celtic Christian Church, whose origins date from second-century Roman occupation.
At age 16, Patrick was kidnapped by raiders and sold as a slave in Ireland. For six years he herded pigs on a Slemish farm. Repulsed by the Druid's human sacrifice, magic spells, and superstitions, from which Halloween originated, Patrick committed himself to Christ, as he later wrote: "The Lord opened the understanding of my unbelief, that, late as it was, I might remember my faults and turn to the Lord my God with all my heart; and He had regard to my low estate, and pitied my youth and ignorance, and kept guard over me even before I knew Him."
Patrick's life became marked by intense prayer. He described an "inner monition" which he recognized as the Holy Spirit. He was led to escape to the seacoast, where he found a ship to freedom. As they left Ireland, a storm blew them to Gaul (France), where he lived in a monastery on the island of St. Honorat for several months.
Years later, Patrick had a dream, as he wrote in his Confessions: "In the depth of the night, I saw a man named Victoricus coming as if from Ireland, with innumerable letters; and he gave me one of these, and ... [that] moment I heard the voice of those who were beside the wood of Focluth, near the western sea; and this is what they called out: 'Please, holy boy, come and walk among us again.' Their cry pierced to my very heart, and I could read no more; and so I awoke."
Patrick left his family and prepared for the ministry in Auzerre, Gaul. At age 40 he was permitted to go. In the year 432, the same time Attila the Hun was pillaging Europe, Patrick crossed the icy sea to Ireland with twelve brave monks.
They made their way to the home of his old master, but found he died in a battle with a neighboring tribe. Undoubtedly, had Patrick not escaped, he would have been killed as well. They then went to the hall of Chieftain Loigaire, who was feasting with his warriors and Druid priests.
A messenger ran in, interrupting the festivities, and announced the arrival of these unarmed strangers. As they entered the long, smoky hall, carrying a tall cross, silence fell. The Druid priests were threatened and alarmed when Patrick boldly spoke in their own language, which he had learned while a slave. The chieftain was astonished, and not only granted them religious toleration, but was baptized and donated the land for their first wooden church.
Druid opposition grew fierce, and twelve times Patrick faced life-threatening situations, including a harrowing kidnapping and a two-week captivity. Patrick demonstrated that God's power is greater than Druid magic, resulting in many chieftains being converted. Feeling inadequate due to his lack of education, Patrick used illustrations to preach, the most famous of which was the three-leaf clover, which he used to explain the Trinity.
Wherever he went, Patrick left ministers. He founded 300 churches, baptizing over 120,000 converts. It was said that Patrick found Ireland heathen and left it Christian, resulting in Irish missionaries re-evangelizing Europe in later centuries.
Patrick wrote in his Confessions: "I pray those who believe and fear God, whosoever has deigned to scan or accepts this document, composed in Ireland by Patrick the sinner, an unlearned man to be sure, that none should ever say that it was my ignorance that accomplished any small thing ... but let it be most truly believed, that it was the gift of God. And this is my confession before I die."
This article originally posted on Crosswalk's Homeschool channel on March 14, 2007.
So today when you are out and about and you see the celebrations and bright green hues. Remember the man St. Patrick and who he was and what his life meant. Honor this day and thank the L-rd for such a person who brought revival to Ireland. May the L-rd send men and women like him to Ireland once again and the world around. They may not be well educated but by the grace of G-d and the leading of the Holy Spirit they can turn the whole world upside down. I hope to be one of them.
Bless you and yours.

My son, pay attention to my wisdom;
Lend your ear to my understanding,
2 That you may preserve discretion,
And your lips may keep knowledge.
3 For the lips of an immoral woman drip honey,
And her mouth is smoother than oil;
4 But in the end she is bitter as wormwood,
Sharp as a two-edged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death,
Her steps lay hold of hell.[a]
6 Lest you ponder her path of life—
Her ways are unstable;
You do not know them.
7 Therefore hear me now, my children,
And do not depart from the words of my mouth.
8 Remove your way far from her,
And do not go near the door of her house,
9 Lest you give your honor to others,
And your years to the cruel one;
10 Lest aliens be filled with your wealth,
And your labors go to the house of a foreigner;
11 And you mourn at last,
When your flesh and your body are consumed,
12 And say:
“ How I have hated instruction,
And my heart despised correction!
13 I have not obeyed the voice of my teachers,
Nor inclined my ear to those who instructed me!
14 I was on the verge of total ruin,
In the midst of the assembly and congregation.”
15 Drink water from your own cistern,
And running water from your own well.
16 Should your fountains be dispersed abroad,
Streams of water in the streets?
17 Let them be only your own,
And not for strangers with you.
18Let your fountain be blessed,
And rejoice with the wife of your youth.
19 As a loving deer and a graceful doe,
Let her breasts satisfy you at all times;
And always be enraptured with her love.
20 For why should you, my son, be enraptured by an immoral woman,
And be embraced in the arms of a seductress?
21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD,
And He ponders all his paths.
22 His own iniquities entrap the wicked man,
And he is caught in the cords of his sin.
23 He shall die for lack of instruction,
And in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.

When ever you look online, go to church, talk with family, friends, and neighbors about a "revolution" happening in our nation... what are the things you think of or come to your mind first?
For me the first things that come to my mind are: Jesus, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Joshua, King Josiah, Queen Esther, King David, Phineas (the guy who was the only one with enough zeal to throw a spear through the two perverse man and woman walking through the camp grounds with no fear of G-d and not one glance of notice to the judgement being poured out from G-d's own hand.), The major and minor prophets of the O.T., John the Baptist, The 11 Disciples who followed Jesus (not the betrayer Judas Iscariot), Stephen the first martyr of the first church, Paul the Apostle, the women mentioned through out the new testment... my personal fav. Mary Magdalene and Phoebe, All of the men and women who died before us laying the foundations before us by the great and mighty hand of G-d almighty.
Each of these people/persons had a heart cry for the revolution in their day in age to happen... and it did. They only rallied after the L-rd commanded them to do so. Under the new covenant in the new testament the rallying that happened is what brought maryrdom to many believers: PREACHING the gospel-good news-truth. Signs, wonders, and miracles followed those that did preach the gospel. The body of Christ has revolutionized this world more than we can imagine and once more the Bride of Christ is about to shine once again. A revolution, a movement is happening. It's a shaking and breaking of all that is in your foundations that is not of G-d to be loosed off of you and for His Spirit to come in and fill those cracks and crevices with Him - His Love.
I know that many patriots to this country are crying out for Justice to be done and for our constitution to be restored to it's orginial writing and meaning. I to want that, but I know it won't happen. I hope that it could it happen and by a small chance if it be the L-rd's perfect will ... may it be done swiftly and all the corrupt leaders of our government removed immediately. However... as an intercessor and a friend to many intercessors... impending judgement is immenent upon this nation. If G-d does not punish and bring due justice to this nation... He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah, to the civilization that existed in Noah's day, to Jerusalem when her city was destroyed. If you think America in it's rebellion against Him has any "right" not to face it, you need to wake up out of your dream. Everything is not O.K.
Can we fight for our freedom's in this country - yes. Will we prevail? - I have no doubt that it is possible. However it's the way we do it. Crying out to Jesus, intercession/prayer, being set apart from the world, keeping our minds on things above - on Christ who sits at the right hand of G-d and is returning. Realizing that whether or not we get our constitution back and our "rights and freedoms" that we TRUST in G-d (Ps. 91). See what we are really fighting for is for the Kingdom of Heaven... which is at hand and it draws nigh ever closer every moment.
I, a patriot, to this great country realize that our battle may in the end be lost... but the outcome of those who were asleep to wake up and realize the evil upon them or that they may be a part of that evil, is worth the battle. IT's a war over souls my fair friends.
You do need to prepare at this time with food, water, camping gear, pair down your clothing and live very simply. GET OUT OF DEBT NOW ... do it with all wisdom. I
Jesus died for all sins, He arose from the grave three days later, and said as He was going back to the Father that He's going back to prepare a place for us. The Kingdom of Heaven is that place... not America, Great Britian, Austraila, Africa, S. America, Latin America, Canada, Europe, Russia, China....etc. All the nations will be His... so when He's ruling and reigning there will be no constitution, no bill of rights... just perfection under His Rule... why? B/c He will make all things new again, no pain, no tears, no suffering... all that will be past and no more. I say that's a lot better fighting for then something that will pass away.
The gun issue: We as American citizens have a "right" to bare arms. Some are saying this "revolution" will have a final resort to violence. But the violence will be against us, not us starting the violence. If you have a gun to defend yourself and family and the widow down the way. Praise the L-rd... but please know that the time to have one is short... our work is primarily the work of the Kingdom, the Father of Lights has already laid it out for us to do those good works. Please understand that you should only use a gun to defend yourself... not to begin the violence or to break out a "riot" against anyone. I'm expecting riots to break out, I'm expecting hard times ahead, but in all this I rejoice to suffer for Christ name sake. He's returning soon, so every king, kingdom, nation, country, people, race, color must be shaken and broken down... for only ONE G-d has created this world and only ONE G-d can rule and reign over us all and He is soon coming, very soon.
Get your hearts prepared for His returning.
BE WATCHFUL and PRAYERFUL. Do not get caught up in any false doctrines or teachings that are contrary to the Word of G-d. Get ready people -- Jesus is returning and the alarm is sounding!
Below is a word from David Wilkerson -- Pastor and Founder of Teen Challange - lives in New YorkURGENT MESSAGE BELOW:
IMMINENT DESTRUCTION - David Wilkerson - 3/7/09
David Wilkerson Today
Saturday, March 7, 2009
AN URGENT MESSAGE
I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent message to all on our mailing list, and to friends and to bishops we have met all over the world.
AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. IT IS GOING TO BE SO FRIGHTENING, WE ARE ALL GOING TO TREMBLE - EVEN THE GODLIEST AMONG US.
For ten years I have been warning about a thousand fires coming to New York City. It will engulf the whole megaplex, including areas of New Jersey and Connecticut. Major cities all across America will experience riots and blazing fires—such as we saw in Watts, Los Angeles, years ago.
There will be riots and fires in cities worldwide. There will be looting—including Times Square, New York City. What we are experiencing now is not a recession, not even a depression. We are under God’s wrath. In Psalm 11 it is written,
“If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (v. 3).
God is judging the raging sins of America and the nations. He is destroying the secular foundations.
The prophet Jeremiah pleaded with wicked Israel, “God is fashioning a calamity against you and devising a plan against you. Oh, turn back each of you from your evil way, and reform your ways and deeds. But they will say, It’s hopeless! For we are going to follow our own plans, and each of us will act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart” (Jeremiah 18:11-12).
In Psalm 11:6, David warns, “Upon the wicked he will rain snares (coals of fire)…fire…burning wind…will be the portion of their cup.” Why? David answered, “Because the Lord is righteous” (v. 7). This is a righteous judgment—just as in the judgments of Sodom and in Noah’s generation.
WHAT SHALL THE RIGHTEOUS DO? WHAT ABOUT GOD’S PEOPLE?
First, I give you a practical word I received for my own direction. If possible lay in store a thirty-day supply of non-perishable food, toiletries and other essentials. In major cities, grocery stores are emptied in an hour at the sign of an impending disaster.
As for our spiritual reaction, we have but two options. This is outlined in Psalm 11. We “flee like a bird to a mountain.” Or, as David says, “He fixed his eyes on the Lord on his throne in heaven—his eyes beholding, his eyelids testing the sons of men” (v. 4). “In the Lord I take refuge” (v. 1).
I will say to my soul: No need to run...no need to hide. This is God’s righteous work. I will behold our Lord on his throne, with his eye of tender, loving kindness watching over every step I take—trusting that he will deliver his people even through floods, fires, calamities, tests, trials of all kinds.
Note: I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I know it is not far off. I have unburdened my soul to you. Do with the message as you choose.
God bless and keep you,

I'm just going to get right to it and I'm not holding back and I'm not going to say I'm sorry about stepping on your toes, when babies are being killed, women are being lied to, and very, very hurt.
First watch this video... for all those who are pro-choice and curious.
Do you agree with the student? She represents most people who are pro-choice.
I have several objectives to talk about. Today I'm talking about a broader subject, Abortion is WRONG! I'll give a breif summary and I'm going to add scripture because JESUS - G-d is real whether or not you chose to believe it. So I'm quoting it, but if all else may the medical and scientific facts rivet you a little, not to mention how abortion has hurt women. I will have refrences, videos, and facts. This is not a debate so if you want to debate go else where. This is a raw statement and I will not tolerate the life of a human being in the body of a woman being disposed because of for whatever reason she finds viable. My main objective is to prove pro-choice beliefs wrong and I pray G-d Almighty brings conviction on your soul! I also hope to convince and encourage curious, confused, hurting, and seeking pregnant women who don't know what to do. There are other alternatives! I promise!
(I'll put it this way if you don't want your baby, give your baby to me. I have plenty of friends who will take your babies too. Who are loving and G-d fearing people who will take care of you and your baby. You're scared and feel alone, there is help. There is Jesus and there is also many organizations and adoption agencies who can help you too... see my end note for ADOPTION Options.)
Brief Summary of why Abortion is WRONG!
(a Christian view and a mother's view I have a 10 month old and saw her ultra sound pictures at 18 weeks.... THERE WAS A BABY MOVING AROUND... in particular to people like the student in the above video who believe there is no contest before 24 weeks. You need to read some medical books an speak to a nurse who just graduated nursing school... better yet take it from me a Mother!)
First to address the video you just watched: She said that some believe life begins at conception and some believe life begins at 24 weeks and still (like her) others believe the baby isn't really a baby "until it pops out of the lady." Hmmm... I just stated that at 18 weeks there was a living, moving, jumpy, baby with a heart beat in my womb. You do the math.
I personally believe life begins at conception... that is the whole point! Once the egg is fertilized... Life has started! Immediately something miraculous begins to happen... the egg and sperm become one and the DNA and genetic code of the mother and father go to work! A nervous system is formed within two weeks! (Don't tell me that "fetus" can't feel.)
Some of the next few things I post are excerpts from: http://www.webmd.com/baby/guide/understanding-conception and http://thesaurus.reference.com/browse/Life and http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/Life
Definition of Life: animation, spirit & the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body b: a principle or force that is considered to underlie the distinctive quality of animate beings c: an organismic state characterized by capacity for metabolism, growth, reaction to stimuli, and reproduction2 a: the sequence of physical and mental experiences that make up the existence of an individual b: one or more aspects of the process of living
From WebMD "The egg can be fertilized for about 24 hours after ovulation." "When the sperm penetrates the egg, changes occur in the protein coating around it to prevent other sperm from entering. At the moment of fertilization, your baby's genetic make-up is complete, including its sex. Since the mother can provide only X chromosomes (she's XX), if a Y sperm fertilizes the egg, your baby will be a boy (XY); if an X sperm fertilizes the egg, your baby will be a girl (XX)." "Within 24-hours after fertilization, the egg begins dividing rapidly into many cells. It remains in the fallopian tube for about three days. The fertilized egg (called a zygote) continues to divide as it passes slowly through the fallopian tube to the uterus where its next job is to attach to the endometrium"
"Within three weeks, the blastocyst cells begin to grow as clumps of cells within that little ball, and the baby's first nerve cells have already formed"
About three weeks after ovulation, the baby's brain, spinal cord, heart, and others organs begin to form. The heart begins beating during week five. During week seven, the umbilical cord appears. At the eighth week the developing baby, now called a fetus, is well over 1/2 of an inch long -- and growing. A ‘full term’ delivery generally occurs around 40 weeks.
The above is from: http://www.webmd.com/baby/slideshow-conception
Do you realize that by the time a woman has found out she's pregnant there is a "living" human being in her womb? By the time a woman might decide to get an abortion... It has a nervous system, "it" can feel it has a brain that functions. The above picture is a "fetus" (baby) at 8 weeks. Though it may not look to human to you... it's the beginning of that little one's life and it's life should be respected and protected at all cost.
Jeremiah 1:5-6 "I knew you before you were knit in your mothers womb."
Please see: http://www.webmd.com/baby/slideshow-fetal-development for a medical slideshow of the growth of a baby week by week.
Galations 1:15 "But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace,"
Psalm 139:13-16 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;[b]
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
Some Medical Facts about Abortion: from http://www.nrlc.org/abortion/asmf/asmf.html
The term "abortion" actually refers to any premature expulsion of a human fetus, whether naturally spontaneous, as in a miscarriage, or artificially induced, as in a surgical or chemical abortion. Today, the most common usage of the term "abortion" applies to artificially induced abortion, which is the subject of this pamphlet.
The vast majority of all abortions performed today are done for social, not medical reasons -- because a woman doesn’t feel ready for a baby at the time, because her partner wants her to have an abortion, etc. Approximately 93% of all induced abortions are done for elective, non-medical reasons such as these.
Abortion ends a pregnancy by destroying and removing the developing child. That baby’s heart has already begun to beat by the time the mother misses her period and begins to wonder if she might be pregnant (about 31 days after the mother’s last menstrual period or LMP).  Surgical abortions are usually not performed before seven weeks, or 49 days LMP.  By that time, the baby has identifiable arms and legs (day 45) and displays measurable brain waves (about 40 days). During the seventh through the tenth weeks, when the majority of abortions are performed, fingers and genitals appear and the child’s face is recognizably human.

Clinical research provides a growing body of scientific evidence that having an abortion can cause psychological harm to some women. "Women who report negative after-effects from abortion know exactly what their problem is," observed psychologist Wanda Franz, Ph.D., in a March 1989 congressional hearing on the impact of abortion. "They report horrible nightmares of children calling them from trash cans, of body parts, and blood," Franz told the Congressional panel. "When they are reminded of the abortion," Franz testified, "the women re-experienced it with terrible psychological pain ... They feel worthless and victimized because they failed at the most natural of human activities -- the role of being a mother."[106 }
The student in the video said that, "it's a woman's choice to do what she wants with her body and nobody can tell her what to do with her body." True enough... however after looking at the evidence above (which is novice compared to many books and research articles, and the like that are out there on the harm of abortion both to baby and mother-to-be) we soon find out that once the woman is pregnant there is a "living human being" inside of her. Which is such a gift from above. Is it then a woman's or man's choice to chose to "kill" (abort) that life? Where is the line drawn and though I don't like to be political, when will there be a law written in our land protecting these babies and the mother's-to-be? I tell you know the "blood cries out against us!"
Genesis 4:10-11 "And He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground. 11 So now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand."
Phillipians 2:3-4 "3Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others"
Hebrews 4:12-13 "12For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account."
The consequences of shedding innocent blood:
Gen. 9:5-6 And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from every animal. And from each man, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of his fellow man.
6 "Whoever sheds the blood of man,
by man shall his blood be shed;
for in the image of God
has God made man.

Also...the student mentioned to her she felt that the (fetus) baby isn't human until it "pops out of the lady." This is not quantum physics or hard intelligent medical or scientific reason. It's simple what is developing in the womb will come out the same as it is in the womb during the last trimester of the pregnancy. Make sense? When a woman has an ultra sound and sees the baby moving and sees it's little toes and heart and such it comes out the same way! Just in living color! Get it? So if it's alive in the womb.... it's a human being in the womb... not when "it pops out."
Though she be scared, alone, afraid, feeling ashamed... are there answers for women who don't know what do in their situation? Yes, there is hope...
If you are a woman considering abortion or know someone who is, please don't let this be your story.

See the movie Bella for encouragement as well.
Romans 8:17 12 "Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together."
