God Goes Back to Church

Jesus exposes the sin of bloodguilt at City Temple Church in Granite City , IL

Written by Angela Michael


 Jeremiah 7:4-8 “Do not trust in deceptive words and say, “This is the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord!” If you really change your ways and your actions and deal with each other justly, if you do not oppress the alien, the fatherless, or the widow and do not shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not follow other gods to your own harm, then I will let you live in this place, in the land I gave your forefathers for ever and ever. But look, you are trusting in deceptive words that are worthless.”

Eight gentle Christians showed up Sunday morning April 3rd at City Temple Church in Granite City , IL to proclaim that Hope Clinic security guard Mike Held, a professing “spirit-filled Pentecostal” who attends church there, is accountable for much innocent blood.

We explained to the Pastor and elders that over 375,000 children have been killed in Granite City in the past 31 years, and churches in Granite City must rise up and take a stand against the “gates of hell” and have nothing to do with evil but rather expose it.

             In the Nazi Holocaust death camp guards in Germany helped exterminate those that were staggering toward death, the helpless and the innocent. Mike Held is helping lead the innocent to slaughter. He actually checks the mothers in as they sign the death warrants out on their children. He escorts them to and from their cars and inside the clinic. Christians don’t work at abortion clinics and pastors don’t tell people it’s okay to help kill children at abortion clinics. Virtuous men and women reveal their heart for God by hating wickedness and bloodshed as much as God does.

            If the Christians don’t stand for the unborn, the Terri Schiavos, or the aged, who will? (Proverbs 24:12) Observing what is happening in our nation to the innocent unborn, the disabled, and the elderly compared with God’s laws, rules, and judgments, a profoundly serious discrepancy can be seen. The Lord is looking for those who will do justice where there is gross injustice. Those who love mercy and justice, God’s people, must step up and soon to protect the innocent or God’s judgment will descend upon our land. Ezekiel 22:24-31 “I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found none. So I will pour out my wrath on them and consume them with my fiery anger, bringing down on their own heads all they have done, declares the Sovereign LORD.”

6 Days Later…


Hope Clinic security Guard Mike Held informed Mia Michael and sidewalk counselor Shelley on Saturday April 9th, his church City Temple in Granite City, IL gave him the boot this past week because we had visited his church with the abortion signs and let his congregation know he participates in the shedding of innocent blood at Hope abortion Clinic. Held said, “Because of you ---holes, God has turned against me.” Proverbs 28:13 “He who conceals his sin does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.” Throughout the morning Mr. Held’s anger was being revealed, God was dealing with him. He phoned the local police and tried to have proclaimers arrested for holding up crime scene tape surrounding the front of the Hope abortion clinic, but the police chief showed up and spoke with Angela and agreed that no laws were being broken and to keep the wooden cross that was erected outside these gates of hell up off the ground. Praise the Lord! We told Mike that you can’t serve two gods, you have to choose who you will serve this day, Matthew 6:24.You see what a remnant can do, if only the church would stand up. God always shows up, God is looking for a few good men and women to pour themselves out and be used by Him in the battle.

Jeremiah 26:15 “Be assured, however, that if you put me to death, you will bring the guilt of innocent blood on yourselves and on this city and on those who live in it, for in truth the Lord has sent me to you to speak all these words in your hearing.”
