“Let My babies go!”

God’s Mail Delivered Once Again to Granite City

Labor Day Parade 2007

Isaiah 6:8 “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’”

September 4, 2007

Written by Angela Michael

 

             The remnant rolled into this City of Slaughter for their annual Labor Day Parade full of unions, floats, bands, and politicians. We were there to be the messengers and deliver God’s mail once again to the hardened hearts of this doomed city.

            We stood in prayer before we carried our array of signs bearing messages concerning the child killing going on in this city as everyone turns a blind eye towards it and continues to harden their hearts.

            A dozen police officers were waiting for us at the parade route. They cordoned off the same area. We turned the graphic signs around so the scripture would be seen, but it was the same message: God cannot tolerate the shedding of innocent blood. Over 400,000 little boys and girls, future workers to fill the labor field, have lost their lives in this grimy steel town. Once known as a boom town for the steel industry, it now draws the undesirables from all 49 states to be killed at the late-term baby dumping mill “Hope Clinic for Women LTD.”

            Different signs, but the same hatred for those truth-tellers. Stiff-necked Granitonians yelled at us and cursed us for being there. This town, their officials, and the silent churches just want to put on a nice parade. The mayor and city fathers have been exhausting the city’s funds to revamp the dilapidated downtown area where we stood. Notably, it is only two blocks away from the baby slaughterhouse. Downtown Granite City suffered a downturn in the 1970s which vacated much of its commercial buildings and in turn, decay began. The early 1970s was also the same time this altar of Baal was erected. Judgment has fallen on Granite City , the same as it did in Jerusalem when they shed innocent blood and defiled their nation

            Once again, we cried out to this city as a watchman, “Wake up Granite City ! Arise from your slumber!” We called to the churches in this town, “Wake up oh great sleeper, before it’s too late.” How much more bloodshed will pollute Granite City , let alone our land, and we expect the Lord to forgive? We must realize that we reveal our hearts for God by detesting bloodshed and wickedness. Granite City , you can only put so much concrete and paint on the problem. It will look attractive on the outside, but it is full of decay and wasting away on the inside. It is only a matter of time before its final destruction.

            “Have we now become your enemy because we tell you the truth?” Galatians 4:16. One woman screamed at us that she “hated us and our signs.” “They are terrible!” she yelled. “Would you rather look at the bloody signs?” I asked her. She huffed away. Truth is hate to those that hate the truth. Another woman screamed, “This is a parade, not advertising. We don’t want you here.”  “We tell you the truth because we love you and we know if you rid your city of the evil stronghold, God can really bless you. Granite City cannot prosper as long as they allow child killing to go on.” The mayor told us he “liked these signs much more” as he passed by on his float.

            The democratic judges and politicians rubber-necked us as they strolled by us. Some bravely walked over and shook our hand and thanked us for these signs being there. The cheerleaders marched by us and on cue they held their ribbon topped heads downward as they walked by. One toddler on a float could be heard saying as he pointed to our sign, “Look mommy, there is Jesus.” It was the sign with Jesus holding an aborted baby in the palm of His hand. “Abortion kills His children”.

            When the Granite City band came by as usual, they deliberately pulled their long band trailer in front of our group trying to cover up their dirty little secret. What happens in Granite City , stays in Granite City ...wink, wink.

            Isaiah 8:11-18 “The Lord spoke with His strong hand upon me, warning me not to follow the way of this people. He said: “Do not fear what they fear and do not dread it. The Lord Almighty is the One you are to regard as holy, He is the One you are to fear, He is the One you are to dread, and He will be a sanctuary; but for both houses of Israel He will be a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall. And for the people of Jerusalem He will be a trap and a snare. Many of them will stumble; they will fall and be broken, they will be snared and captured.”

            “…Here am I, and the children the Lord has given me. We are signs and symbols in Israel from the Lord Almighty…

            Thank you Lord that you give us a spirit of courage and perseverance as we stand here in the lion’s den. Let your peace fill us, and mercy and righteousness prevail.

            Just then, the group of teamsters, UAW union members, and Steelworkers of America with a few gorillas in front looked at our signs and laughed. I spoke up, “There’s nothing funny about genocide. Listen knuckle-heads, there would be more teamsters marching in this parade and in the work field had we not aborted over 400,000 little boys and girls just here alone in Granite City.  They were carrying hand held “Stop child labor” fans.  

            “What hypocrites,” we thought. You have to save the baby first before you can enforce child-labor laws, which are a good thing.

            One of the Union members handed me this brochure concerning sweatshop labor and enforcing child labor laws: “Did You Know?” The Dog and Cat Protection Act of 2000 prohibits the importing or exporting of dog or cat fur products into the U.S. market. The goal of this Act is to deter the brutality and suffering upon dogs and cats, whose fur was being used for products such as coats that were entering the United States . Is it not time to extend these same protections to human beings?

            We give more protection to dogs and cats than we do to human beings. Just ask Atlanta Falcon football player Michael Vick.

            Is the Church listening? “Are we going to be like the Christians who did nothing to help the Jews and the Slaves?” Why is the Church so silent? Only one was represented in this Labor Day parade.

            We all bear responsibility in child killing, some more than others. We all must put our hand to the plow. Are we willing to pick up our cross? Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? Matt. 16:21-26.

            When will Granite City realize that they must get rid of this house of horrors first before God can bless their city? Granite City will not prosper as long as they allow child killing to go on. God can never bless a nation or Granite City where innocent blood flows throughout their washboard streets. God is calling us to expose the lies that are covering up the slaughter of innocent human beings.

            It won’t be easy. To the world, it is impossible, but in Christ we know that God gives grace and strength to those who put their hand to the plow for His sake.

            We ended in prayer, packed up our signs, and prepared for the long drive home out of the City of Slaughter . We prayed that hearts were touched, eyes opened, and for an increase of laborers ministering in the killing fields.

            Innocent blood is flowing through the streets of Granite City . It has a voice and it is crying out for justice.
